  1. Maev....Sydney

    As usual …I seemed to prefer SBS viewing….
    I enjoyed Queen Victoria’s Slum….I was as shocked as the participants…one does not really think…until you see it laid out like that…
    And of course…I am watching the Tour de France….I am not into cycling…but those doing the commentary explain it reasonably well….I mostly watch for the scenery and explanations of various sites and happenings alone the way….

  2. The SBS ‘Queen’ series was very similar to the various ‘House’ series that were popular 10-15 years ago across the world, recreating the day to day life of a period with largely unprepared volunteers-always a shock to find out how hard life was for almost all people in the past-would be worth noting that folks were flooding in to the great industrial towns and cities to live in those conditions because it was even worse to be an agricultural laborer…

  3. Seven’s ‘highlights’ next week are 2 eps of yummy mummies, behave yourself, all round to mrs. browns and toddlers make you lol. Dear God I despair.

    • Plus House Rules final. I suspect they are waiting for MasterChef to wrap before Hell’s Kitchen Australia launches. Nine has Origin & Ninja Warrior. Will they win their first week?

      • After spending over 1 million an episode and millions marketing the thing, Nine are really throwing everything at Ninja to try and get that weekly win. Time will tell.

  4. I’m another who didn’t know about Behave Yourself – due to not watching much Seven and being in China for a week. Usually try every new show for at least 5 minutes! No doubt encores around, plus7 etc

  5. I Watched the first 25 mins of this Behave yourself show. I didn’t like it because it was rubbish. Turned back to 72 to watch Tennis instead.

  6. Agree overall with the below comments regarding Love Child.
    The Season finale was great last night – after a sometimes patchy S4, it tied up all the loose ends perfectly, if somewhat hurriedly. Everything resolved and lots of happy endings all around, except for Matron. I suspect that was the Series finale – it had that feel about it and it wouldn’t be the same without Mandy McElhinney as the domineering matron. She played that part perfectly – a very complex character – hateful, bitter, scheming but lonely and vulnerable at the same time.
    Will miss LC if there’s no S5 but has probably run its course.

  7. The shine has come off Family Feud – its winter and it can barely do 400k, time for a shakeup (bigger prize money?) or a look for something else.

    • Haven’t watched yet but am curious to see if the show deserved the bagging it copped on social media.
      With the exception of a few like HYBPA? this genre of show often seems to fail or miss the mark on commercial television.
      The 7.30pm start from now on will surely restrict BY to somewhat restrained content as well.

  8. I never even knew about this Behave Yourself show being on, shows how little I watch Seven these days. Love Childs final was great, and this season as a whole was much better than season 3. I haven’t been keeping up on the ratings, but I know that every one who watched this season loved it. If they could get Mathew LeNevis back there could still be story for season 5.

  9. Excellent finale of Love Child last night, wrapped things up perfectly. Hard to see it coming back again, not much left to work with

  10. Just had a look at the combined and Behave Yourself jumped up the rankings significantly with 825k. David do you happen to know the numbers for the other panel show Best Bits that Seven did?

  11. Was a good episode of House Rules last night. Sorry to see the twins go.

    Watched Behave Yourself. It was far better than I expected. Much better than Big Music Quiz, I’ll come back next week.

  12. Watched Behave Yourself with the family and had some good laughs. 510 sound pretty solid for a new 9pm show. Have you been paying attention was well below that for years.
