    @ Regional Viewer

    I’m an Aussie & I like QI :)
    But then I’m weird because I don’t like Aussie comedy ;)
    (Must be the British Ancestry in me) :D

    QI doesn’t work if there is someone who knows all the answers, or if no one knows any of the answers.
    But when they know a bit and are funny it is entertaining and informative.

    Whether they really should press on with full seasons all the way to Z is another matter.

    watched one episode of QI i just don’t get the British humour the format of the program doesn’t really suite Australian audiences unless your British of course

    Thanks Nathan. Yea its easy to say stay off the internet in a vain hope of not getting spoilt, but in this day and age why should we need to and surely this is what the digital chanels are for???
    I can always try other chanels but last year whilst waiting for the final episode of the Voice to air, I was watching Sky News and the winner came up as a news alert – sometimes you just can’t hide from the world!!

    We know you do not like QI…but I think your descriptive quote is uncalled for….there are possibly more folk that do enjoy the show…it rates well…

    Seven advertised Intelligence to be on the new day of Tuesday. OK how many days of the week is it going to involve? Does that mean that Bones will be on Thursday? Or something else?

    I just looked up the EPG. It is supposedly starting at 9.50pm. So does that mean it’ll be after Resurrection normally? I’ll admit that’s why I take to planning TV watching night by night instead of weekly. Because you just can’t trust anything these days with all the games. Not to mention random mind reading seemingly of my unconscious on the ultimate anti-advertising. That just repulses me. I try to overcome it. But I’m not good at it. Like the Shane Warne ad with the spider.

    If they are planning to play Bones on Thursday then I’m glad for that audience.

    A good night Not to watch ABC-1 before 9.30pm!
    Stephen Fry returning with that waste-of-space, Q.I. and the pale imitation of Spicks & Specks still spluttering on past its use-by date.

    Nine currently does not broadcast AFL Games. Seven is the only broadcaster of AFL – This includes Brownlow Medal as well as AFL Grand Final.

    Fox Sports and 10 have announced that they will be the official broadcasters of MotoGP in Australia. Fox will show all practice, qualifying and race. While on 10 they will have races live of MotoGP on 10/One with an extended coverage of Aussie GP on Ten and Fox

    Nine is negotiating on Rising Star on a one year deal in Australia, if they pass it on then a Ten could snap up the rights as Seven seemingly don’t want the rights

  13. Nathan April 23, 2014 at 1:05 pm -

    @sf1965 Here’s an idea if you don’t want “spoilers” and I use the term lightly, stay off social media sites and TV Tonight. It’s not that hard.

  14. sf1965 April 23, 2014 at 11:02 am -

    Why can’t Ch9 show the logies live this week on one of their digital platforms in WA?? By the time it airs 2 hours later, it will be almost run and won with all results that have been declared freely available all over social media or thru a live rolling update here I would presume!!

    Once Upon A Time is back this Saturday, however it’s down to one episode starting at 7:30.

  16. Shoudy Chen April 22, 2014 at 11:45 pm -

    Hope that Ten gets the AFL broadcasting rights and Seven winning the rights for the Olympics.

    Very happy as the NCIS ratings jumped up to almost usual numbers when Reserrection wasn’t on. Ep.14 in preliminary weekly numbers is already at 1.059Mil. The ratings from the 2 weeks before improved overall by about 100,000. I guess Resserection will resume after the Easter break.
    I enjoyed The Bible. Thought it was nicely done with good actors. The Sound of Music is always a joy to watch. Angela Cartwright who played Briggeta is on twitter. Spicks and Specks is still quite good, I am liking that as well. Love all the old movies that have been on. Maybe I’m becoming a bit of an old fuddy-duddy but i prefer them to some of the new ones. Hate all the swearing and violence.

    @unclepete Thanks. Good to see that Ten are speedy with a response and straight up about it. Id prefer theyre played in order but, as you said, there’s only about 7 of us left watching Hawaii Five-0!

    Another thing with ONE is the annoyingly voiced voice-over guy for their promo’s. He is on par with the hip (read: lame and unfunny) ABC2 voice over chick.
