The most interesting thing happening at the moment is how light on viewing is at 9:30pm. The interesting part is what shows are filling these slots, and the ratings they aren’t getting.

Also, the changes at One are becoming more noticeable, with at least 4 movies this week as it’s transition to man-cave/7mate competitor is all but complete.

Conviction Kitchen is a cracking episode this week, with some actual drama to boot. It’s such a rewarding show, one entirely worth the effort to watch.

The talk at the moment, however, is the surprise A Current Affair episode that Ch9 are airing tonight (Sunday) at 6:30pm. Part Japan earthqake/tsunami coverage, part further Hey Dad! revelations. Certainly worth watching, even if only to support the experiement.
