Hi there

Hmmmm... let me see... Home and Away is shown at about 5:30 on a weekday...
No-one I know watches H&A..... Twin Peaks is regarded the same as most
of David Lynch's other work: either you love it or have never heard of it!

Some people think that it is "too weird", and those that missed the first
few episodes are completely lost..... The biggest rating TV show at the
moment in OZ is (I think) "The Bugs Bunny Show", because of the lady that
introduces it: Sophie Lee (an absolute HONEY, but a real fruitcake)...

Neighbours has really declined in popularity... I guess that most people
watch movies (no "Movie Channels" or any form of cable over here), or
sport... Australia vs the West Indies at cricket this week....

Hope this has been some help..

Oops!  I guess that I shoud mention that TP screens at 9:30 on a Tuesday
night, against "Jake and The Fatman", and "In the Heat of the Night".
