Who said the other day that the Block was down this year on last? 1.6 mil is incredible. Mentalist's 800k is a worry though. 60 Minutes needs to go IMO- a shadow of its former self and a massive block in their schedule that stops flow. Either move it to 6:30 or can it.

Seven would have gotten bigger ratings for Downton Abbey had they not waited months to screen it. Diamond Queen was another excellent episode.

Block jumps heaps within the space of one week. MasterChef dominating in the younger viewers and some good numbers for Downton Abbey. Seven still skewing extremely old on the night.

Shares added. Woah. Seven's primary really thumped last night. 6% ahead of Nine, even with The Blockbuster :covereyes: . Post-8:30 content really sealed the win for them.

Downton Abbey might have been 2mil+ had it not been delayed for 6mths+.
Second season has aired practically everywhere else in the world that airs it in its entirety.

Much higher results all round versus last week. With such a woeful lead in, Modern Family is doing quite well at 6.30pm. Poor retention by New Girl though.

All the reality shows are getting stronger on a Sunday night. I still think that shows like The Block and Masterchef would be a lot more successful if they just screened hour long episode two or three times a week rather than stripping them across every night at 7pm too. It might boost the 7pm slot, their full potential isn't being utilised.

Quite a drop off for Downton Abbey compared to last year. Still thrashed The Mentalist and absolutely smashed Touch. Terrible shares for Ten. New Girl has really awful ratings.

Castle suffering thanks to Seven screening a new episode from 10.15pm.

Such an old skewing night for Seven being beaten by Ten in 18-49 and 16-39 (6pm-10.30pm commercial share). Ten has basically no over 55s watching them at all with just 12.3% watching their 3 channels compared to Nine/Go!/Gem with 29.5% and Seven/7Two/7Mate with 58.1%.

Downton Abbey might be big in total viewers, but it was beaten by New Girl in 16-39.

Great to see Masterchef over 1.3 million and winning its timeslot in total people, 18-49, 16-39 and 25-54. Great show last night!

Touch may have only done 604,000 in total viewers (based on correct times) but with 372,000 in 18-49 it beat Nine with 362,000 and was a lot closer to older skewing Seven with 519,000.

Dancing With the Stars was beaten by The Block, 60 Minutes, Mentalist, Modern Family, New Girl, Masterchef and Touch in 18-49 and 16-39.

Final ep of Downton last year got 1.589m so that is pretty good retention year on year. People who were downloading it then would always download it. So thats a brilliant result for any drama (or any show).

Block dominates at 6:30. Easily. Mentalist really has just been ignored and mistreated by Nine so no surprises there.

Who said the other day that the Block was down this year on last?

i did and it is.
1 The Block (week 6 2011) -Sun Nine 1,828,000 509,000 708,000 331,000 150,000 130,000
although 9 would be very happy now that it has had an increase.

Seven would have gotten bigger ratings for Downton Abbey had they not waited months to screen it.

Downton Abbey might have been 2mil+ had it not been delayed for 6mths+.

Quite a drop off for Downton Abbey compared to last year.

the season 1 finale got:
2 Downton Abbey Seven 1,589,000 401,000 525,000 308,000 167,000 189,000

so almost everyone returned, 7 would be happy, considering how late into the night it ran, i don't think the delay did any harm, when you compare it to the damage fasttracking can do.

I believe that demographics are important, but overrated. They are over-emphasised in this forum.
Demo's allow advertisers to more accruately pick and choose which program is best suited to their particular product and place their advertising there, but ther are a multitude of products that are suited to every demographic and many products that transcend demo's.
The important issue for TV stations is revenue and profitability and a high skewing demographic does not necessarily mean doom and gloom.
Those who claim that only certain demo's are significant spenders are naive.
There is profit in every demo, and advertisers have the wherewithall to go and milk it.

almost every show that has been fasttracked has been damaged by it, i don't see why it would be any different for Downton. clearly holding it off to launch it properly has done no damage. i don't know why any network would ever fasttrack where it is avoidable.

People want to see the whole season in a row. I doubt that many people actually download shows as what's believed. It's probably an exaggeration when people say that majority download. It's actually illegal at the end of the day.

There is a huge difference between holidng off to launch properly and holding out for over six months. This is not 1997.

maybe for you. but tv isn't scheduled around an individual. they are programmed to get the most viewers possible out of the whole population.

Fast tracking of established shows is OK in my opinion. It is launching a new series where we need a considerable promotional timeframe and networks to be in a good place ala TEN have no eyeballs watching in the end of the year so launching a new series is tough as people are settled into Seven and Nine but launching at the top of the year allows them to promote alot and build anticipating plus its like starting a new slate.
