Perfect for Australia Day, then!
Andrew O'Keefe & Monique Wright and James Tobin have returned from holidays this morning.
@TV.Cynic Who won the ratings last week?
Sunrise won nationally by 24,000 incl all markets except Sydney.
This year is Nelson Aspen's 14th year working on Sunrise ,as we all know his role on the show has been downgraded in recent years.On tomorrow's show he starts a new weekly segment Star Socials.
Nelson should have never been shafted in the first place. If they had to move Eddy they should've moved her to present news with Nat becoming the new co-host. Both Nat and Eddy deserves a better role IMO.
They should switch from two hosts to three... Get rid of Kochie and Sam as host... Get Baretta, Nat and Edwina to become the hosts of the show. Then Edwina and Nat can take turns reading the news headlines whereas Baretta can read the sport. They can get the Jason Dundas to be the social media presenter. Edwina can keep her entertainment role, Kochie can be the finance guy which he's good at and get a weather presenter in the studio. Perhaps somebody thats Tim Bailey like...
Yes I am really thrilled about the Daily Bailey going national ...
Three presenters have been tried by 10 in Australia and haven't really worked. I've read what you have said before about this on another thread but why Jason Dundas? The ratings are doing fine and show clearly that generally most people are happy with the way Sunrise is at the moment.
I think he deserves a national presence. If TEN ever decides to get back into the brekky TV market, they should revive GMA and make Tim Bailey do the weather, Get Angela Bishop to do entertainment, and poach some ABC/SKY News people to be the presenters of the show...
Apologies. I just thought of a name and thats it...
The reason why three presenters never worked because the people at TEN have no idea and only decided they would jump into a market they left 20 years earlier. In the US shows like NBC Today and ABC's Good Morning America and CBS This Morning have switched from 2 presenters to 4. I don't see why that can't work here... At least Seven can make it work unlike TEN
When Pell first took over he used 3 presenters for a week or 2 but then reverted it back to just the 2.
I think it was for three days (Monday-Wednesday) with Sam (reading the news), Kochie and Nat. I actually quite liked it. However, I echo the comments that Sunrise is rating really well and like Seven News Sydney, I doubt anything is going to change for now.
Found this on the web:
N.B: Credit and huge thanks to original uploader.
Seven should go back to being original and different. That was how they began dominating over Today.
um... have you seen the resent ratings? they are dominating.
Yes I have, and that was impressive given how they made a great comeback in then 2nd half of the year. However, just because ratings are dominating, doesn't mean things shouldn't change, although the change should evolve gradually IMO.
