I agree, but early evenings cannot be ignored. If The Project at 440,000 is "very profitable" then The Simpsons must've been a license to print money at 6pm.

Don't worry, I'm ready for the daily Masterchef fails.

Simpsons is on eleven and rating poorly there so no it woul not be profitable.
No matter how much you want the Simpsons to return to ten it won't be happy.
We should all be concentrating on tens main prime time slots and the woeful ratings.

How is it rating poorly on Eleven? It's now on 11 times a week(up from 5 since Eleven's launch). New episode was in the top 5 last week. It was also the highest rating show on Foxtel.

I'm not forgetting the rest of Ten's schedule. It's a complete disaster and we'll see just how bad it is when Masterchef bombs.

I doubt Masterchef will bomb but I'm sure it will be softer than last year.

How many times do you have to be told that The Simpsons will not be reinstated on Ten. You bag The Project and you talk up The Simpsons every day to no avail. Get over it.

The Sifon is yet to realise that you can only comment on the Project if you praise the program. No criticism, however slight or constructive, will be allowed.

So you're supporting the return of The Simpsons to Ten too now? :rolleyes:

I'm not denying that The Voice is a massive hit. It is, and that is an fact. However, I am not going to sit through 2 hours or so of battle rounds. Can easily catch up on the show via Nine You Tube channel or catch up episodes in a quarter of the time.

No comment. The thought police have left me scarred (and scared) on this issue. :white:

Bagging out a show while suggesting a better alternative that isn't The Simpsons, Neighbours or the Naked News might receive a better response than just bagging out the show because you can.

JBar, I dont understand why you can be so abusive to Sifon and get away with it. There is no need for that, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Channel Ten don't have to axe the Project, but they should make changes to ensure it rates 800,000 plus every night. Otherwise Ten's whole night crashes. Simple as that.

And what would those changes be? 6pm is a difficult slot. Its been home to 2 news services competeing directly against each other for decades, so no wonder viewing habits are so entrenched. One cannot wave a wand and make the Project rate 800,000. The show has already seen an improvement in ratings over the year, so let it be. Ten knows it would see viewing figures half of what it sees at 6-7pm should the Project be axed.

And even though having a show performing decently does unquestionably give Ten a flow-on effect to later timeslots, it won't make or break Ten's primetime fortunes. That network has serious issues in how it approaches programming and building a consistent schedule.

I'm bagging out the ratings, not the show.

What do you or others suggest Ten do? Stick with The Project 6pm? They do that and it'll rate 200,000 by the end of the year. There has been NO GROWTH. It's rating worse than news revolution!

The news evolution rated a lot less and you know it. You have chosen one figure on one day to justify your argument.
Yes stick with the project. It won't be changing as ten are happy with it. I think ten need to work on post 8pm. The project in not their main issue or problem. It is also not the major rating concern for them. This daily,unnecessary bagging of themshowmachieves nothing when you know nothing else,they put there will rate better.

I'm clearly right. I don't make up these figures. :)
Find me a time Ten News @ 6 rated lower than 440,000 on a weekday? It never rated that low.

Who Do You Think You Are? on SBS ONE finished its latest season with 374,000 for the episode featuring former Sydney Swans AFL player Michael O'Laughlin. The series started with 435,000 for the Shaun Micallef episode on March 20, jumped to 623,000 the next week for Kerry O'Brien, before going downhill once again partly due to increased competition from Seven and Nine. I have enjoyed this season and it deserved better figures.

Yes, for fucks sake, they need to improve The Project. Start by getting a decent host! Replace that Charlie Pickering with someone like Wil Anderson. And get QUALITY guests. Get some big names. Create some news!

It is quite simple, either the Project rates over 800,000, or it is a failure. Dont give me your bullshit spin, that is the fact. 600,000 does not cut it.

Never? Really? Clearly you're wrong when you look at the figures below.

How about Friday 20-5-11 when it rated 406,000. Or Friday 29-7-11 when it got 426,000. Or Wednesday 3-8-11 when it rated 383,000.

There are also plenty of days when Ten's News at 6 got around the 440,000...like Friday 24-6-11 (440,000), Thursday 26-5-11 (446,000), Monday 1-8-11 (446,000).

If you check later in the year, Ten News at 6 is regularly below 400,000.

Here are a few random dates:

TEN NEWS AT 6

Tue 4-10-11 367,000 (Negus 322,000)
Wed 5-10-11 394,000 (Negus 355,000)
Thu 6-10-11 361,000 (Negus 387,000)
Tue 1-11-11 375,000

I stand corrected. Thank you. However I suspect the dates you've selected are not so random.
