    Alec Baldwin vs Donald Trump! Ratings will be spectacular.

    Elizabeth Warren for Democrat Presidential candidate in 2016.

    Tom Watercloset will probably nominate just to see his name on there.

  6. Gavin Moodie

    I also was pissed off at the Weekend Australian dropping its weekly tv guide. I now buy the Sunday Age instead.
