LOl at that pic in MX he looks like a wax dummy. God he is annoying, I wish he'd o back to Melbourne. He has certainly approved some stupid decisions at 9, axing top rating shows and replacing them with shit. He is a lunatic.
he totally fucked up the news and research divisions, and i think playing around with sunday and axing sunday business was a very stupid idea, im suprised he didnt bone jana and put himself as host of sunday :S
Axing Y&R was an abysmal decision. Esp considering it was the highest rating daytime soap (picked up by foxtel). He also axed Dr Phil, another high rating show, which 10 subsequently picked up. Yeah he also fucked up the news divisions and Sharyn was booted and moved to Brisbane Seven ... what a mistake, she was someone to hold onto. Employing Jessica was the worst decision any programmer could have made. Nine is defo still shit, if anythign I think its worse, too much sport and not enough quality TV. Too much of berts fat ugly head and his stupid 20-1 shows.
Cannot really think of much worth watching on Nine.
Their 'news' is infotainment. 'Current Affairs' a mockery, sports programming is chopped up and on so late you only see it if you are a burglar, a student or an insomniac.
What else do they show to fill in the rest of the time? NZ highway patrol and some shit reality show on a hospital. Wasn't there some show on people departing at the airport? There is that guy who looks like a pumpkin with a piece of fur on top of his head hosting some quiz show, Bart Newman or something. To me, it is just staggeringly shite, boring programming. 'The Footy Show' is the only thing you bother with, just for the footy gossips. But even that is getting to the end of it's run.
Having said that, who gives, if you have half a clue you can download the latest and best shows over the internet. Leave the cretins and old folks to watch Packer's dumbing down Australia tv channel.hno:
