Your say, c/o the Guide, PO Box 14735, Mel­bourne City MC, Vic­to­ria, 8001 fax: 9292 1177 email: tvguide@her­ald­sun.com.au All let­ters must carry your name and ad­dress to be el­i­gi­ble for pub­li­ca­tion. If you don’t want your name pub­lished, just say so. The other sta­tions are not even try­ing. It seems hav­ing your par­ents, grandma, grandpa, girl­friends and young ’uns on the show pays off. Matt Tilley’s tired ‘‘gotcha’’ calls seem to do the trick with some peo­ple, it seems. Mel­bourne ra­dio needs liven­ing up— same old gags, same old bor­ing sto­ries about their per­sonal lives. No one cares.

Not again, Ten

from Dis­grun­tled Viewer, Al­ban­vale I’VE fig­ured out why Ten barely man­ages to crack the top 20 rat­ings each week— it’s be­cause it con­stantly shows re-runs. It gets bor­ing af­ter a while. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen the same episode of Ready, Steady, Cook— and that’s not the only show re­peated. Can Ten please show new episodes in­stead of go­ing cheap and show­ing re-runs?

Just in time

from Se­nior Footy Fans, Moama THANK you for the 8.30pm Thurs­day start to The Footy Show. At least all we se­nior footy fans were able to watch it to the end for the first time ever. Please keep it as a per­ma­nent times­lot.

Funny old game, Shane

from Heather Whe­lan, Pat­ter­son Lakes SHANE Craw­ford, please save your rep­u­ta­tion and stick with The Footy Show. I watched The World’s Fun­ni­est Videos show be­cause of you and felt be­trayed, it was so ridicu­lous. If you want a laugh, con­tinue to watch the re-runs of Two and a Half Men. They are still hi­lar­i­ous and laugh­ter is the best medicine. It cer­tainly makes my night when­ever this pro­gram is on.

Lit­tle less Con­ver­sa­tion

from 774 Ru­ral Lis­tener, email JOHN Faine’s morn­ing pro­gram rat­ings on ABC 774 could be fur­ther in­creased if sta­tion man­age­ment dropped the bor­ing ‘‘Con­ver­sa­tion Hour’’ af­ter the 11am news and con­tin­ued talk­back un­til noon.

Dex­ter, sin­is­ter

from Ted Wil­liams, Ararat WHAT is Ten do­ing with Dex­ter? The best show on TV should at­tract more view­ers with bet­ter pro­mo­tion and ad­ver­tis­ing, but con­stant changes to its times­lot are los­ing loyal fans. A few weeks ago Ten pulled it from its friendly 9.30pm Mon­day sched­ule for a re­peat of NCIS. Then it put two episodes back-to-back the fol­low­ing Sun­day af­ter Rove. Tol­er­a­ble. But the fol­low­ing week it pushed it back to 11.30pm af­ter the swim­ming high­lights, even though it had ad­ver­tised it the other way around. Lift your game, Ten.

Sly dig

from Norm, Somerville IS 3AW’s Sly of the Un­der­world on the po­lice PR pay­roll? Po­lice feed him a bit of in­for­ma­tion in re­turn for him never crit­i­cis­ing their meth­ods. He even praised the way they han­dled the G20 demon­stra­tors.
