    I’m pretty sure the final is on the 4th of never.

    @Peter B- I agree with you. I don’t get the deal with MKK and I am not a fan of cooking shows but do have a few issues with The Voice this year as I have mentioned earlier. I am still a fan and will continue to watch The Voice but just giving an observation.

    Thanks jonno for your insights. But what is so great about MKR? It has been running for months, and it serves up the same old slovenly superficial flummery every night! Beats me why folks even watch it!

    And look where viewers turned to when news was developing ABC News Breakfast: 57,000 / 49,000 (and plus a few 10xmillion on Australia Network).
    @jonno – I don’t watch it but “They have not changed their clothes for 2 weeks.” had me laughing aloud. That is so bad. It’s not radio, people.

    ABC news back over 1 mill … yay

    I am tipping MKR will topple The Voice next week. The voice is looking tired this year. They have not changed their clothes for 2 weeks. I know its because they film it over a day and it helps with editing but American Idol and AGT do also but can have clothing changes. This and their recycling of acts who have already made it is just lazy TV.
