Wednesdays have always been the home to the hotly contested ownership of the remote. Traditionally for the free to air networks – it’s mid-week, people are looking for something to distract them from everything, and TV usually wins. No one network owns the night, there’s too much hopping about , and the schedule we’re offered doesn’t fix that. Adam Hills in Gordon Street Tonight and Laid, both new from the ABC, look to be very good however unlikely to face down the monoliths that are Criminal Minds for Ch7, Farmer Wants A Wife for Ch9 & Blue Bloods for Ch10. 7:30pm is no better – the reality showdown of My Kitchen Rules & Biggest Loser: Families will be an interesting one to monitor.

Winner predictions:
6:00pm – NEWS (Either Ch7 or Ch9).
6:30pm – ACA/TT (Ch7/Ch9).
7:00pm – TWO AND A HALF MEN (Ch9).
7:30pm – Too close to call between MY KITCHEN RULES (Ch7) and BIGGEST LOSER: FAMILIES (Ch10).
8:30pm – Blue Bloods (Ch10).
9:30pm – City Homicide (Ch7).
Night win – Channel 7.
