TV Talk: 5 March 2014

It’s the middle of the week already! I’m not sure about where you are but summer seems to have made a hasty retreat here with the cool weather arriving and certainly sending us inside.  It will be interesting to watch if this is isolated to just us or if it’s going to translate into the return of higher ratings.

As is always the case, this is your daily free-for-all discussion about whatever you’d like to discuss about TV.

    How long till Jessie gets the shove?. Toni & Mike look quite comfortable togther without him in studio these last couple of weeks.

    • In the Know

      All in good time – he’ll be “re-assigned” to My Kitchen Rules once it gets underway

      • K

        Yup. Said that from the start ITN

        Seven Sharp is just so much better with 2 hosts. makes me laugh how Jesse is no more than a reporter now tho…

        • Ann Onymous

          I agree with you, K.
          Because 3 is never going to work in any scenario other than the placement of objects (art, vases, etc.).
          They do indeed seem to be using him as a reporter – wonder how the likes of Heather feel with him treading on their territory?

      • roger

        my kitchen rules doesn’t need a host.

        • Ann Onymous

          I don’t think they mean as a host, Roger – he’d probably be one of the judges. But now that Pete Evans is quitting the Oz version, does that mean he might be interested in the NZ edition?

    • tv3isbest

      Im suprised as to why they didn’t make him do the fake thing with peter williams. Will love to see how they drop him.

      • Ann Onymous

        @tv3isbest – I don’t think they can afford to – his contract is pretty iron clad and lucrative from what I’ve heard (TVNZ had to make it worth his while to jump from 3 last year).

  • Ann Onymous

    I really like the current ‘Breakfast’ combination of Greg and Ali. They should get rid of Rawdon and put Greg on the show permanently (he’s away at school camp this week).
