It amazes me that the networks aren’t attempting to produce more of this type of feel good programming when people are looking for an escape from the negativity that surrounds them. I can think of several formats that could involve comedians that would be cheap to produce yet the networks have hitched their wagons to variations on the same tired themes- food, dating and renovation. Yawn.

If POO sinks much lower Seven may have to consider wiping it from their primetime schedule.

Plate of Origin a disaster as expected

I see what you did :joy:

There’s definitely a multitude of reasons why it’s failed -

  1. Obviously viewers who are tired of cooking shows and/or the judges didn’t tune in
  2. Judging from social media over the past 2 days, people who watched POO didn’t like the show format and thought the judges were the best part of the show
  3. We’ve already had MKR and Masterchef air for a total of 6 months this year
  4. It’s competing against two reality juggernauts (The Block and Masked Singer)

Apparently, the contestants are also unlikable so there’s no urge to watch and cheer on their favourites

Good quote, interesting, hadn’t realised.

That 6.30 win to 9News in Brisbane could be enough to win them the week on its own. 7 has some catching up to do…

Yep I was right !
