Gretel Killeen, when she first began hosting Big Brother.

1. After 4,057 days and 13,284 contestants, Ten's Big Brother finally ends. Boy, that just flew by, didn't it?

2. The premiere of First Tuesday Book Club on the ABC. Not my cup of tea, but it would have to be the first original idea on Australian TV since Fishcam.

3. Channel Nine actually scheduling a Saturday afternoon movie worth watching - Casablanca.

4. The return of Rafferty's Rules to Channel Seven. Giving the people what they want. Or something.

5. Midnight Zoo, Quizmania and Hotdog's Uplate Game Show all on the air at the same time. Goodbye insomnia, hello quiz-induced comas.
