No spinning it. Ten had a terrible night. They should be ashamed that they dished up such a weak schedule. They are not trying at all, the bad figures are deserved.

Alcatraz held its premiere audience well, which surprises me. Far from out of the woods though.

Very strong night for 7, more home rounds seem to have been a good decision. Revenge retaining a lot of its audience. HIMYM strong, especially those demos. But the late night lets 7 down with happy endings and Sports fever. Meaning they don't get the astronomical shares you might expect after the 7:30-9:30 they had.

7th Heaven had over 130k on Eleven at 10am yesterday. That puts it second in its slot behind The Morning Show. 20k ahead of Mornings. More than double The Circle.

You may as well call the year for Seven. They cannot be stopped at all. They are the Black Caviar of television at the moment. Nine's gone back to BBT repeats, and Ten's failing badly. I'm starting to get bored of Seven's domination, I want some competition damnit! The breakfast battle is getting close, and when Ten enters the fray next week, it will be interesting to see who gets damaged as a result.

Dropbeer, can you stop posting these furphy ratings? This seems to be a regular occurence for you now. If you don't have access to the actual ratings, then please don't post some random number.


Yes point taken JBar. If the ratings figures are not confirmed but people are commenting, I precede it with "word is".

The ratings for the Project last night are confirmed to be The Project (462,000). The word was early that it was not as disastrous as the weekend, but still very weak.

And where is this "word" coming from? It's an unreliable source or mischief making.

So how about we only comment on actual ratings on this forum and not false rumours.

The circle doesn't have any star power anymore, they need to find a replacement host for the show quick rather than having random celebs on.


They need 2 replacement hosts as both Chryssie Swan and Denise Drysdale have left, and agree totally agree with you that they don't have any star power anymore.

Is it possible that on some mornings ABC2 is number one - even ahead of The Morning Show?

No, "word" is coming from a very reliable source. You might remember on the weekend, the "word" was the Project rating was very low 300,000s and in fact it was later revealed to be 308,000. The "word" was spot on.

Good to know that Bananas in Pyjamas is rating quite well in Sydney. :P

On a serious note, Nine News only won Sydney by 26k. Will be interesting to see what happens tonight/tomorrow.

Once again, ACA wins in Sydney. God knows why Sydneysiders prefer it over TT. Similar situation with the 6pm News.

With Neighbours the #1 show on the multichannels last night, I wonder how long it will be until Eleven rates better than the main channel between 6pm and 7pm?

Huge ratings for MKR and Revenge. MKR is unstoppable, I can see an audience of 2 million for the finale.

If you are getting bored of Seven's domination, what about Nine which won every ratings year from 1978 to 2006? :tongue: It's time another network gets a turn to dominate ratings.

Well, what is the reliable source?

You have posted the incorrect ratings here on at least three occasions now, so your source is consistently wrong. Otherwise they or you are deliberately making mischief with false reporting.

I think the answer is that it will be 10 who gets damaged. Not that they can get damaged much more. they are the Greece of FTA telly.

Just had a quick skim through the multichannel top 50 and it looks like ABC2 averages around 140,000 between 9am – 11am.

With The Project getting 464K (6pm-7.03pm) and Eleven with 193,000 for the same time...I don't think Ten has anything to worry about.

When you take the older viewers out of the equation, looking at just 18-49 figures between 6pm-7.03pm last night, Ten+Eleven+One had around 400K, Nine+Go!+Gem had around 430K and Seven+7Mate+7Two had around 442K. Not a lot of difference really.

I think the answer is that it will be 10 who gets damaged. Not that they can get damaged much more. they are the Greece of FTA telly.


Nine are the Greece of FTA telly! They are the network in all kinds of financial trouble having to ask for extensions on credit just to stay in business and on air. Ten have undertaken huge budget cuts because of a downturn in ad revenue. Problem is, those budget cuts can affect programming and marketing and even on-air promos and presentation. Compared to Seven and Nine, Ten are a very low budget network, and that is why they lost Hamish and Andy and Thank God You're Here, as well as being outbid by Nine on The Voice and Big Brother.

Yet they can afford to retain the highly-expensive rights to MC. Go figure.

Probably only expensive from this year and they wouldn't have any problems selling Masterchef so as to make a profit on the show. How would Nine be able to make a profit on the very expensive Excess Baggage with only 96,000 viewers? This show might be out of everyone's mind because it's on Go!...that was definitely Nine's intention by moving it there, but the fact remains that they have a hugely expensive and heavily advertised series only getting 96,000 viewers. Outrated by almost everything.

they didn't

Didn't Nine actually win every year from 1956 to 2006?

The short answer to that is 'no'.

And don't believe all you read on Wikipedia :)

i think 7 won 2000 if olympics are included, which usually aren;t.

Compared to Seven and Nine, Ten are a very low budget network, and that is why they lost Hamish and Andy and Thank God You're Here, as well as being outbid by Nine on The Voice and Big Brother.

sounds like a crap business model to me.
and they expect their bids for highly expensive and unprofitable sport to be taken seriously.

Probably only expensive from this year and they wouldn't have any problems selling Masterchef so as to make a profit on the show.

I think they would have great difficulty selling the licence fee for MC at a profit. especially if theis season does more damage to the brand which it probably will. tens 3 year deal was made while the show was making $100mil per season so a high asking price for the licencing was justified, if the ratings and profits slide its no longer justified no one is going to pay what ten did while they thought it was a money machine. wasn't there a report that the licence was $50mil per season?

Why does the ABC's Brisbane News' ratings always seem very low? I notice it's often the case, but is it a historical thing? The other eastern states seem to be far closer in general.
