there you go. Didn’t know that. Thanks for that.

A shame that it’s all over the place in recent years.

my link function wasn’t working for some reason on Apple

But as alluded to in the ABC programming thread, BH&G is looking in real trouble now (last night’s figures). Finally viewers tiring big time of the now very old format? Not sure last year’s changes have done much, in fact maybe alienated some and they did get rid of a long-time member too.

Seven came third in main channels, extremely rare for Fridays, but a month straight now of being at least second behind Channel 9!


I think fridays are a redundant area now.
Maybe Tuesday night would be better? It used to be on Tuesdays years ago.

I notice that Daniella Winter has begun her guest stint on BH&G. Her first appearance was on the May 7 episode in which she and Adam Dovile did a lounge room revamp.

Daniella and husband Aaron won House Rules in 2017 and run their own renovation design company Hype Build + Design.

If viewers like it, Daniella could be the replacement for Tara Dennis who announced her departure from BH&G in early January this year.

Friday 23 July -
Due to Seven’s coverage of the AFL and Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony, BH&G will be shown on 7TWO in VIC, TAS, NT, SA and WA from 7pm tonight.

SAS Australia’s Ant Middleton is special guest on this Friday’s episode (March 4), doing some gardening with Charlie Albone.

Just saw a promo on the main channel in Melbourne (during The Latest after the AFL) for BH&G “Friday 7:30pm on 7Two”.

Is that a big error? Isnt it 7pm and Channel 7, at least for the first half hour? @TV.Cynic

Read the fine print, it’s probably a different time zone knowing 7… :rofl::rofl::rofl:
