    Good on 7Days! Is that their highest rating ever? TV3 seem to rule friday nights! TV2′s line up is crap. I hope TV3 doesn’t lose this line up when the “change” occurs. More 7days! More overseas guests who have no idea what or who we are talking about and so they just swear a lot to sound funny!

    Great figures for 7 Days….phenomonal for 9:30 on a Friday night!

  • reece_555

    Local comedy on friday is paying off nicely, since 7 days returned it has improved heaps.
