    Can’t wait till MKR finishes and maybe another channel will start winning the ratings for a change.

    I’m not sure if Nine’s stock pile is all that great, haven’t they learnt people will go else where if they are forced to wait too long for shows the constantly promote. Its like a big beacon ‘this show is great’.

    And now Ten’s multi-channels are coming last too. No surprise, they’re a confusing mess
