1. Oh. Not even Kyle Sandilands tuned in watch his new show, Trial By Kyle.
On Thursday night, the first episode of Trial By Kyle went to air on Channel 10, attracting a metropolitan audience of 363,000 – not the best result.
The show sees radio host Kyle Sandilands hear cases (well, petty complaints) from everyday Australians and then deliver his completely unqualified verdict. Winner of The Bachelor and qualified lawyer Anna Heinrich is on-hand during the show to offer her legal advice and some occasional side-eye in Kyle’s direction.
Sound appealing? Well even Kyle Sandilands is conflicted over whether he’s actually wanting to watch his own television show.
In a bizarre move, Kyle wrote on Twitter on Thursday: “I’ll be watching @LoveIslandAU tonight, but you guys feel free to watch
@TrialByKyleAU 8:30pm on @Channel10AU.”

Even on his radio show on Thursday morning, the controversial host consistently mentioned he won’t be watching Trial By Kyle, as he likes Channel Nine’s Love Island too much.
“What if it’s not as good as the pilot… this is what I’m worried about,” he said to co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson.
