  1. Unsurprising after a disastrous q1 with flop after flop. Good to focus ahead and look at the positives. 1% Club is the breakout new hit of the year. Hopefully it gets some tlc and grows further when new eps return. This is Your Life specials should do well. RFDS will need to be relaunched but should do ok provided it is promoted properly and airs after Home and Away or at 7 Sunday offering alternative to big reality drama. But Seven’s biggest hope sits on another network and it is The Block. They’re hope- that audiences tire of a reality juggernaut that shows no signs of slowing down. Unlikely given the buzz already out there but stranger things have happened and Ten could come out dominate.

    1. And Nine score Gold in veracious plagiarism. A basket full of hopelessness aside from Married at First Sight, the Ashes series, State of Origin and that garbage show ‘The Block’.
