Ten's best performance for 2012 so far. It surprisingly won in primary channels and was within 0.4% of Seven's overall share.

Nobody is watching TV this easter non-ratings with New programs making up the entire Top 5. Not that there was anything on anyway although I did enjoy Worlds Strictest Parents.

Seven chased viewers away with their non-ratings period programming choices.

Who Do You Think You Are? only just missed the Top 20.

Why are people bothering to comment about how close the "ratings" are? These non-ratings periods are just an excuse to treat viewers with absolute contempt as opposed to the normal level of contempt shown us by FTA channels. I watched Bargain Hunt on 7TWO (now on at 6.37pm) and then the Downton Abbey Christmas Special on my media player. Wonder how long before 7 shows that?
Do "A List" newsreaders have in their contracts that they have to have minimum 10 weeks holiday a year? They seem to bolt every time there's a school holiday.

Nobody is watching cause there is nothing on to watch.
Nine reasons to watch Titus Pollo on Rome.

Wouldn't there be a few newsreaders out there that have children, and therefore, want to spend some time with them? Anyway, it's interesting to see that Seven and Nine have tied in the Sydney 6pm News battle, although ACA smashed TT in the 6.30pm "Current Affairs" ratings battle in Sydney.

Unlike the rest of us who get 4 weeks holidays (if we are lucky) and actually work 50 hours a week. My experience is newsreaders have a very very cushy existence and do no more than they need to. 30 hours a week would be a stretch. i don't think any of their kids is wondering where Daddy or Mummy is.

Boo hoo! Get a degree in journalism, work a long career as a news reporter and then score the top job as a newreader. Then you can have longer holidays too and can stop your bloody whingeing. :tongue:

I wasn't whingeing - I was just marvelling at the silliness of tv where the hosts just go AWOL at the sniff of a non-ratings period. And yes I have worked for many years in a newsroom but I was never enough of a political animal to rise to the top. After 16 years, I went to the dark side - PR. More money, more fun, no egos, less pressure.
And finally - long career?? Does that include all the blonde girls reading the news now? :yummy:

You are spot on go_russ_go.

When I was at 7 Perth, Sue and Rick used to waltz in at 3-4pm each day, find out whats happening, do a few news updates, read the news 6-6.30 then GO HOME!

And for this they get paid well into the 6 figures lol. Rick Ardon even spent a lot of his day prior to 3pm buying and selling properties to make even more money!

Out of interest, and in fairness, how does this compare/differ to their counterparts at Channel 9 or 10?

And for this they get paid well into the 6 figures lol.

which is probably small change compared to the amount of advertising revenue that they are drawing in to the channel over the course of a year as the anchors of the city's top-rating news bulletin which they have maintained for over 25 years.
