    Listening to tonight’s sold out Melbourne Derby on radio tonight because there is no free to air coverage. Missed opportunity for the a league and a poor decision not to have more games on free to air.

    @Lincoln @mandyJ Dancing With the Stars has to be on 2 times next week for it to finish within the ratings season. Guess thats why they have had double BATG on in other weeks too

    What’s happened to beauty and the geek next week, replaced by dancing and something about dogs, not happy pushing back Covert Affairs back to 10:30pm

    Been catching up on the replay of Resurrection on Seven .Glad I did.Missed it first time around Quite thought provoking & intriguing.All set to go with series2 on Sunday Night with a double shot.

    Watched Lateline last night, and cried at the terrible mindless cruelty inflicted on the poor cattle and sheep in Gaza and Jordan, Egypt.
    What’s wrong with these disgusting people, and why are we still sending them live exports?
    Thank you ABC for exposing this, while most other news outlets can only talk about reality “stars” and publish dozens of rubbish celebrity stories for their bogan readers/viewers.

    Did anyone else hear about the CC for Doctor Who shown on BBCA. Danny rings Clara and is sitting on a bench and he says “I’ve got our bench” but on BBCA the CC read as “yo”.

    Who the heck does the CC and it didn’t remotely sound anything like that!

    It was absolutely gorgeous. Julia and Wendy, both national treasures. Don’t agree on your view of Micallef though.

    An oasis of good TV in the middle of a dessert of absolute S**T!, That’s Julia Zamiro’s “Home Delivery”, tripping around in vintage cars with comic legends and visiting their childhood haunts. Last night’s edition with Wendy Harmer was one of the best episodes thus far of the show, all up(including episodes from the previous series). The S**T I refer to is that waste-of-space Shaun Mikalef(don’t care if I misspell that idiot’s name) and those utter morons and their puerile Media Circus(had the utter misfortune of having to sit through 6 minutes of it while waiting for Home Delivery) The hour between 8.00 pm and 9.00 pm is utterly wasted on Wednesdays on ABC!

    How many episodes of The Block can you watch on Nine’s catchup….399… read it right.

  15. MandyJ October 22, 2014 at 12:35 pm -

    David do you know what’s happening to Beauty and the Geek next week? Replaced by DWTS and a special about pampered dogs???

  16. Secret Squirrel October 22, 2014 at 11:33 am -

    Context is everything. I think if it had been 5000 English-speaking white people it might be a different story.

  17. Pertinax October 22, 2014 at 11:14 am -

    So one person gets beheaded and they pull anything with a reference to beheading so as not to cause offense.

    But 5000 people die of a horrible disease, and they put Contagion on.

    Political Correctness can be tricky.

  18. David Knox October 22, 2014 at 10:50 am -

    Gotham replay replaced by Movie: Contagion -originally due last Friday. Reacting to Ebola?

  19. Belinda October 22, 2014 at 10:40 am -

    What happened to the repeat of Gotham tomorrow? I couldn’t watch this week due to XFactor and other shows, so I was relying on that. Are there any other replays or do I give up on this show now. Not going to bother with useless Jumpin.

  20. Mr_AJ October 22, 2014 at 10:04 am -

    There be a single episode of Alphas on Friday night.

  21. Lincoln October 21, 2014 at 8:23 pm -

    What was that channel 9?
    Saying that “wake up with today, Sydney’s best”
    I don’t think this was suppose to be shown in Adelaide..

  22. npstanley80 October 21, 2014 at 2:18 pm -

    Bring back Doctors to UKTV Please

    What has happened to Heartbeat On Gem they keep moving it around the schedule and now it seems to have dissappeared all together

  24. Xephyrise October 20, 2014 at 5:36 pm -

    So I sit back to watch a nice game of cricket on GEM, and then they tell us that ‘oh, sorry but we cant be bothered seeing this thru to the end, so we’ll only show half the match’ … and just what are they rushing off to air instead? Friends (x2), something called Wild China (sounds like a doco) and the movie Man On Fire. Pathetic, C9, if you dont want to air it in prime time, then dont ask the authorities to play day/nighters, and if that still doesnt satisfy, then dont air the bloody match at all, cause half a match is just lazy, piss-weak, audience-killing nonsense. Put it back on Foxtel ASAP

  25. Lincoln October 20, 2014 at 5:20 pm -

    I personally thought that The Big Adventure was quite boring, don’t think I will be watching the second episode. I wish channel 7 brought back The Mole instead, but maybe do a special season with celebrities and the celebrity who won got to give the money to their picked charity??

  26. Maev....Sydney October 20, 2014 at 5:10 pm -

    Just turned on the TV to watch TEN was on ABC24…I am watching their news instead…Bill Woods is reading the news with Kim Landers.
