Eddie gets a bouquet but a reader puts the squeeze on Ten
Make Eddie later
from M. Walker, Keilor East EDDIE’S new show should be on at 7pm. That’s when we like quiz shows. We all like Deal at 5.30pm. from Roman, Mt Martha THE new format for Millionaire Hot Seat is perfect for the 5.30 timeslot. At least the contestants need to have some knowledge and skill to win as opposed to the original show, which relied on luck and greed. Eddie McGuire hasn’t lost any of his touch as host.
from Marion, Wangaratta WOULDN’T it be great if Ten could curb its enthusiasm for self-promotion long enough to roll the credits on a full screen after movies. Microscopic print on half a screen is nonsensical and irritates viewers. Any promotion is lost on me because I can’t change channels fast enough in protest at this crude editing. Give viewers some credit and stop this ignorant rubbish.
from Steff Roe, Heathcote South SEVEN’S 10 Years Younger in 10 Days is completely underwhelming. Couple Sonia Kruger’s feigned amazement at the rather unremarkable transformations (a haircut and a shave) with an unenthusiastic response by contestants to their partner’s new look and all I can say is ‘‘flop, flop, flop!’’ I’ll find another way to fill an hour next week, rather than bother seeing if the series improves.
Make them miners
from Martina, Port Fairy 10 YEARS Younger in 10 Days, please get real. The show featured a rough-around-the-edges couple from a mining town, who did scrub up well and hopefully it turned their lives around. But I bet neither ever wears those clothes again. Why not feature them in smart practical clothing suitable for their mining town?
Loser is a winner
from Biggest Fan, Cheltenham I HAVE been reading people’s comments about The Biggest Loser and I disagree. I think this is the best series by far. Yes, it’s repetitive but so is all reality TV. The twists and unpredictability of it all are amazing. Well done, Ten.
Anger over angst
from Peter Seebeck, Ivanhoe COULD all football commentators and other TV presenters look up their dictionaries to see the one-word definition of ‘‘angst’’. It is from the German language and means fear and has nothing to do with anger.
Too many cable ads
from Ian, Morwell GEEZ, it’s embarrassing when my non-payTV subscriber mate calls and asks how much my Austar costs, while he sees for himself how the ad volume rivals free-to-air. And I see Seven is continuing to have about a 25-minute half-time break for their Sunday-arvo delayed AFL telecast, ridiculously masquerading as something resembling live sport.
Better new than old
from Robyn, Echuca WHAT do Seven or the producers of Better Homes and Gardens think they are playing at by putting old segments among the new on the program? Last week even had a segment where Tara the craft woman was still pregnant, which was well into last year!
Two hours in the wilderness
See the Lite
from Peg, Black Rock THE ads for Lite n’ Easy meals on Ten have me worried. If I were to eat those meals, would my voice be affected like the women in the ads? from Joanne, Mt Waverley IS it really too much trouble for Nine to screen the final two episodes of Everwood? The show ended in 2006 and it’s incredible they can’t find a timeslot for the final two hours.
Long live the king
from Tracey, Keysborough I SUPPOSE I should thank Nine for putting King of Queens on (Friday 7.30pm) for two weeks before it was yanked off so Big Momma’s House 2 could have another run after being shown only a few months ago. How about showing it instead of the unfunny Ellen repeats at night?
