Thank God You’re Border Security

Television Ratings for Australian TV appearing on the web page and provided by

The first show is a ‘live action’ comedy program that involves multiple skits where a comedian is placed in a situation of which they know little and is always greeted with the phrase, “Thank God you’re here.”

The second show is a the worst kind of reactionary nonsense pitched as a ‘reality tv show’ following the trials and tribulations of Australia’s Customs Officials, ie those charged with the responsibility of maintaining the integrity of Australia’s borders. It plays on the fears and anxieties of the population.

One show, is thanking God ‘you’ are here, while the other is premised on the expulsion and control of the ‘other’. The rest of the shows are about ‘home’ or (states of) emergency, or both in the case of ‘House’!
