the NRL footy season over, perhaps you’ll notice the battle of the lifestyle shows being played out on rival TV stations on Friday nights. Channel 7’s perennial Better Homes and Gardens keeps on keeping on with its cast of favourites including host Joh Griggs, cook Karen Martini and TV vet Dr Harry. Channel 10 has The Living Room, with Amanda Keller, Chris Brown, Barry Du Bois and Miguel Maestre. Spending patterns may show fewer people shopping for luxuries, but they’re still spending big in homeware stores.
