This series is the continuation of The 7PM Project (2009). The on-screen title was changed when the series had its start time brought forward from 7:00p.m. to 6:30p.m. to replace the axed George Negus Tonight (2001), and had its duration extended from 30 minutes to one hour. See more »
If you want to invest your precious time watching a panel pushing their chosen point on view (with the help of carefully plucked studio audiences who are like-minded), then you'll just love the show. But for those who would rather an intelligent, well reasoned and calm debate, you must look elsewhere. Most of the panelists are not easily identifiable with people that you will come across in your day to day, and thus there is a great separation (lots of talk show hosts, radio personalities etc.).
The panelists are quick to gang up on courageous people who express views different from their own. It basically is the essence of social bigotry and intolerance. The Project much prefers to have popular opinion win out the day but this leaves the show feeling rather wooden, hollow and a great waste of your brain.
