  1. I listened. I have been wondering if Free To Air TV wasn’t slowly rendering itself redundant. So I believe Molk had a point particularly with regards to Channel 10 which puts and awful lot of energy into advertising Paramount+ content. I don’t believe any other network does this. I can’t help but feel that a large chuck of Channel 10’s ad revenue is from itself.
    Studio 10, the little show that could doesn’t deliver like it used to. It became very vanilla. I don’t understand why you would take something that is working and seek to destroy it. People are taking issue with one of the hosts. One member seems to be regularly subjected to content that is embarrassing because it doesn’t work. Spontaneity is something that audiences dearly miss. Also, the varied points of view have narrowed. It is a real shame. There are still core viewers engaging with the show only to provide feedback that’s being ignored. I can’t imagine what it will be replaced with.

  2. Better to re-run old episodes of “I Love Lucy” nobody watches breakfast tv anymore apart from retirees or people in nursing homes. So much money wasted on it, it isn’t the 80s/90s anymore.

    What’s the average rate for a 30sec in the morning 200/400 bucks lol

    YouTube and consumption of the internet took over.

    The studio executives were more than fair to flog that horse long enough.
