I've enjoyed watching the 7pm Project over the last couple of weeks. I hope Channel 10 stick with it and don't dump it only to show repeats of "Everyone loves Raymond" or "Friends".
I'd never gotten a handle on Charlie Pickering before this show, but I'm enjoying the way his slightly dorky, "regular guy" personality is coming to the fore.
Carrie Bickmore is terrific of course. After being used to her on Rove, it was a little odd to not hear the punchline after each news story, but I'm used to it now and I like how Charlie and Hughesy usually interject between stories I've never been a big fan of Dave Hughes, but he's not too bad on this show. Having said that, I really enjoyed the July 31 2009 episode - where Hughsey wasn't there and Jane Hall filled in. She was much funnier than he is! Hopefully, Channel 10 will stick with it until the rating settle... they are more likely than Nine or Seven to allow a show to build an audience.
