  1. I’m glad there’s a new show doing well. Regardless of whether you like it or not, it’s nice to have a fresh format shaking things up.

  2. I watched Poldark last night. I pvr the Monday replay due to it clashing with bull and orphan black on Sundays. I’m enjoying this season so far. I like how Demelza has evolved and she is standing up for herself and how that contrasts against Elizabeth’s misery. This season so far is better than last season.

    Don’t like the habib’s new timeslot. It’s too late.

  3. Get out the Bolly, another show that out-rates the News. A bold decision that’s paying off. State of Ninja and Celebrity Ninja can’t be far away.

  4. Secret Squïrrel

    1.6M for the second ep of Ninja – nobody saw that coming. Or heard it.

    And then it took on 20 assailants one at a time before leaping backwards up into a tree.

  5. I’m really surprised ANW held almost all its audience. The first episode was so long and repetitive. 18 contestants running exactly the same course got a bit tiresome. Not to mention the irritating shrieking families on the sidelines.
