Hey you rock, chick.  And Smurf.  From the look of it this information is somewhere on the same site we're on right now, but I'm too lazy and uninterested to find it.  When it's put here I read it and find it intresting and thing "Cool my show did good" or "WHERE THE HELL IS MY FAVORITE SHOW, DON'T CANCEL MY SHOW" so thanks to all that post this stuff here when there isn't any feedback usually.

I'll do my best and hopefully other people will come in as well.  For the meantime I'm gonna keep telling myself that your avatar is a picture of you and that it's your natural skin colour.  My monitor's a little screwy so perhaps it actually is but I somehow doubt it (think)  I'll have my fun either way though.

Each to their own but I'm dubious about Who Wants To Be a Millionaire. It's against Grey's Anatomy & Numbers in Adelaide. Not huge programs in Australia but they're getting there.
Divide the tv audience between those 2 programs & a quiz program where contestents may answer as few as 2 - 3 questions in an hour, sometimes with prompting by the host, who's voting for it?
Posted by: 80 (Guest), October 5, 2005, 11:07pm; Reply: 18
From memory (I clicked on the link) Grey's Anatomy didn't do as well the previous week in the national stats.  Monday looks like a solid improvement for it but it was previously in the top 20 at 17 or 18 or something
I read somewhere that someone has finally won the million on millionare so that could bring it back some viewers after half the country tunes in to see that one episode air.  I don't think it will suffer all that badly but still more than a little.

Thanks Adrian, my fellow ratings fanatic  ;)

What did everyone think of the B-Team?

I watched Australian Princess and it was very funny at times. Will probably tune in next week.

I thought the princess show was a bit boring.  I was hoping for something more.  Comedy I suppose.  It tried to deliver but didn't and I didn't watch it all.

I thought the B-Team was pretty bad.  Unplanned was much better.  With the ratings the B-Team gpt on it's opening show, and since that show also wasn't even very good, I'm guessing it will be gone before long.

Although I haven't watched it, Ten's "B Team" promos made the show look awfully lame and boring.

In the absence of the main event, Lost, the habitual conqueror of Thursday nights, it would seem all eyes have now turned to curtain-raiser Today Tonight, which explained Thursday viewership.

Go Grey's Anatomy!!

I think 24 should move to a differant day.  Grey's Anatomy is the wrong show to put right before it in my opinion.  Nevermind.  I just looked and there's no good place to put it.

To win next Monday, 7 should advertise both Great Outdoors and 24 a lot more. Supernanny must have stolen some viewers away from Great Outdoors, so Channel 7 should make the promo for next week's Great Outdoors slightly different to what they normally do, and include something that will really appeal to the audience. This week's promo for 24 was very disappointing. They showed way too many close up's of the characters faces and not enough description of whats actually happening. For next Monday's episode, they should make the promo much more fast paced and show some of the politics and the terrorists filming their video tape about their threats to the US.

IMO Blue Heelers should be moved immediately. If Forensic Investigators is doing well in a 9:30 timeslot, its bound to do even better in the 8:30 timeslot than what BH is doing right now.

According to eBroadcast's TV news, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire scored a whopping 2.26 million viewers last night:


Nine Network - 2.26 Million Bewitched By Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

Almost 2.3 million viewers were bewitched when Rob Fulton made television history last night as the first person to win the million-dollar jackpot on WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE, hosted by Eddie McGuire.

Fulton, a 36-year-old graphics operator from Sydney, snared the million-dollar prize when he correctly answered Bewitched to the following question:

Which of these popular ‘60s TV shows premiered first?

A. Bewitched B. Get Smart C. Hogan’s Heroes D. I Dream of Jeannie

WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE peaked at 2.266 million viewers across the five capital cities – 683,000 in Sydney, 742,000 in Melbourne, 345,000 in Brisbane, 240,000 in Adelaide and 256,000 in Perth. It was the No 1 program nationally as well as in Sydney, Melbourne, along the East Coast as well as Adelaide.

WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE averaged 1,810,000 nationally – 559,000 in Sydney, 599,000 in Melbourne, 270,000 in Brisbane, 182,000 in Adelaide and 200,000 in Perth.

The program crushed Seven’s Grey’s Anatomy (1,358,000 nationally) and 24 (825,000) as well as Ten’s Numb3rs (794,000) and The Biggest Loser (848,000).

Spearheaded by the stunning performance of WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE, the Nine Network scored a whopping 32.5 per cent All People share (6pm to midnight) nationally last night – way ahead of Seven’s 26.5. Ten was a dismal third with 18.6.

In Melbourne, GTV-9 scored a whopping 34.1 per cent All People share. Seven had 25.5 and Ten 18.3.

GTV-9 also won the coveted 25-54 demographic with 33.2 per cent to Seven’s 28.0 and Ten’s 19.5.

Rob Fulton’s million dollar prize brings the total amount of money given away on WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE to $26,532,000.

Last night instalment was cringing to watch. But judging by the ratings, it would seem, many viewers found the show entertaining.

Mr Casey's trademark tantrum remained the hallmark of classic claptrap television, from his part in a spirited debate chaired by Jana Wendt to the that punch-up on The Midday Show with Ray Martin.

I find that ratings are a joke- I don't know a single person who actually has the equipment req to contribute to ratings + i watch at least 50 hours of TV a week min yet there are only ever 1 - 2 shows that i ever watch in the top 10- i seriously doubt the veracity of ratings, believe they are completely rigged..... i don't know a single person who ever watches the news, a current affair, better homes & gardens- i think they are entirely made up the only shows ch 9 has worth watching are the closer, without a trace & the csi series; ch 7- las vegas, alias, desp housewives & lost- who would watch the news when the simpsons are on???

I wonder how long this Millionare trend will last.  I'm told this guy they have on the commercial won the Million as well... of course I'm told that by a 15 year old kid and didn't take it seriously enough to bother asking where he heard it from.

I give it till January 9.  But I don't even think it'll be playing on January 9th because of the season ending so I'll predict that it comes back 3/4 as strong as what it leaves at and then loses more ground in 2 months time.

Hey Rockchick where do you get these ratings stats from?
Can you please post sunday nights ratings?

ps. The Kath & Kim movie rated over 2 million last night. Phenomenal. Probably the most successful fully-local production in decades.

Do you know how Smallville rated last night?

Yeh see if you can get an unofficial ratings system up.

I found these ratings for Sunday 27th Nov on another site

Seven 29%
Nine 23.9%
ABC 22.7%
Ten 19.4%
SBS 5.1%

It dosen't look like Smallville rated that well judging by Ten's overall rating figure.

Yeh thanks. I thought it wouldn't because of the Kath and Kim special. I believe like 2million tuned in for that last night. Lets hope Thursday night rates better.

830k is actually okay for Smallville, considering the Kath&Kim juggernaught on the other side. As long as it doesn't go much lower than 800,000, it should stay put.

You guys havent seen the ratings yet? I'll give you guys some figures of the biggest surprises so far this Summer courtesy of getyourfix.

Futurama 1,186,000
Veronica Mars 803,000
Surface 1,163,000
The Ghost Whisperer 1,200,000
Boston Legal 800,000

Headland has been hovering around the 780K mark. Biggest surprise there IMO is how well Ghost Whisperer did on Tuesday.

Do you guys think that the ratings for Smallville will have to pick up in order for it to be shown during ratings period?

Do a lot more people watch tv during the ratings period?

I hope 'Rosetta' rates well. Special guest star Cristopher Reeve.

^ Me too on the ratings thing.
I've also always wondered how the ratings and "non-ratings" period worked.  I mean obviously it's not like ratings aren't taken and business just does what it wants for a period of time.  So my assumption is that this is the time to fill in the gaps that the really good shows leave when there aren't any new episodes.  Is this the case?  Is this how it works?  If so, doesn't it seem like there would still be stiffer competition during this time and more shows would be introduced to continue into the normal seasons even if it's late night stuff?  I'm also curious as to how many more people are watching during the rating and non rating period and what the basic demographical differance is, if any.

Shouldn't the ratings period be 48 to 42 weeks a year not as it is now?

Surface - Outstanding show, average ratings.
Futurama - Rating other show's butts off.
Headland - Head Over Board
Batchelor - Deserves crap ratings
Medium - Repeats rating very well, should be good next year
Godzilla - Great movie, great ratings for an old movie
Cricket - Obviously doing well
Sunday's ratings - Make no sense, Braniac wasn't on.

Well not to be mean but not having really paid attention to the ratings for Smallville, Ten is promoting it over and over and over again which seems to be what they do before something gets cancelled... unless it's Big Brother.  And I'll take time to b**** about that too, I'm really tired of seeing bigger than life commercials that dwarf the actual show only to find the show cancelled 2 weeks later.  You'de think the advertising time could be spent on something else and that the way 10 does this is financially kind of stupid... of course I don't work there to know and hindsight is 50/50.

For Smallville fans across Australia, i hope that MeanDean is wrong. But in the scheduled program for ten it said it would continue into ratings.

I predict that either Smallville's ratings will either rise (to the 1 millon mark), or fall miserably during the rating season as most show generally don't rate too well at this time.

Good to see over a million people tuned in just to see two repeats of House. That bodes well for the second season.

But yes, that ratings day is quite intimidating if you're Ten or Nine. Seven really trounced that.

But Supernatual WAS Ten's big gun for Monday night. They placed up a Simpsons marathon against the Housewives, which did well-ish. But Supernatual at 9.30pm dropped from 1.5 million to out of the top 10. I'll try and get exact figures for it.

I believe Ten are putting Numb3rs at 8.30pm in ratings season. I think Supernatual could still do well at 8.30.. it's got a different audience to DW I think..

Last night, when Desparate Housewives was on, There was absolutley nothing worth watching on the other channels. Supernatural was delayed until 9.30pm, there was something stupid about ancient Egypt or something on 9 - rivetting stuff, and who cares what was on the ABC or SBS - nothing as usual. Enough of the Simpsons / Futurama double episodes already! Were they all afraid of DH? Will Nine be putting Millionaire up against it again?

If you don't like DH, then there is nothing for you. Bring back Eddie!

How were the ratings for the Simpsons/Futurama Spook-a-rama on Monday night? According to get your fix, the ratings passed the 1 million mark, but did that include the entire 2 hour marathon, just one episode, or the three Futurama episodes? If it includes the entire marathon, that's pretty darn impressive considering that it was pitting against Desperate Housewives.

I'm so pleased that an underrated (and cancelled) animated show like Futurama is finally receiving the ratings that it deserves.

Seven didn't know how to handle it. It belongs on Ten next to the simpsons.

Medium rated pretty well, and I'm quite pleased with how the week's turned out in TV. Lots of good season-returns to kick-start us off.

Is there any way we can see a run-down of which shows were most successful in their respective timeslots over the entire week?

Overall, the winning channel was:

The top 10 performers were:

1 Desperate Housewives  1,939,000  
2 Today Tonight  1,584,000  
3 Seven News  1,411,000  
4 The Biggest Loser  1,407,000  
5 Home & Away  1,372,000  
6 National Nine News  1,347,000  
7 20 To 1  1,226,000  
8 ACA  1,198,000  
9 Who Wants To Be A Millionaire  1,187,000  
10. Winter Olympic Day 2  1,102,000

Occassionally I'll try and get some interesting rating events for shows not usually mentioned in the top 10.

The breakfast battle is still being won convincingly by Sunrise on 7. However, there are odd moments when Nine's Today breaks through. For example, it triumphed over Sunrise in the 8am half hour yesterday morning.

The mid-morning talk show battle commenced yesterday, with Kerri-Anne winning well over Ten's new 9AM. However, the later triumphed over 7's morning lineup.

And the return of Bert at 9 meant their 5.30 slot performed abit better. Bert won in Melbourne, but there's not alot in it nationally.

Quoted from elie06
The Biggest Loser fell under the competition from Home and Away and Temptation.

The Biggest Loser would of fallen because of The Cricket (bit of irony there really), being on at 7pm Tuesday, as Temptation was not on until after the Cricket finished (well in Melb, and Sydney at least, not sure about Adelaide, QLD, and Perth, guessing it would be the same), though it was still a good showing by Temptation, on at after 11:00pm at night, and it still held 1,057,000 of the 1,276,000 who were watching the Cricket.


Be interesting to see how the rest of the week pans out now, like on Monday Bert's Family Feud got 678,000 and Deal Or No Deal got 820,000, then with out Bert's Family Feud on Tuesday, Deal Or No Deal got 883,000, so they gained 63,000 viewers (against the Cricket).

Plus the 7pm slot will also be interesting, seeing as on Monday Temptation didn't get much at all apparently (not  mentioned on GYF at all), even though the shows around it were in the 1.2 million range.

The Biggest Loser is still performing very well for Ten so far this week, nearly scoring the number 1 position at 7pm last night, and helping boosting the performance of Ten's Wednesday lineup.

The Top 10 performers were:

1. Prison Break - 1,460,000  
2. House - 1,425,000  
3. Seven News - 1,405,000  
4. Today Tonight - 1,394,000  
5. McLeod's Daughters - 1,315,000  
6. Home & Away - 1,257,000  
7. ACA - 1,209,000  
8. Jamie's Great Italian Escape - 1,186,000  
9. NCIS - 1,160,000  
10. Australia's Biggest Loser - 1,157,000

Bert's ratings weren't so crash hot, scoring 527,000 viewers against DOND's 873,000. You need to remember though that Bert is actually shown in some markets at 5pm, hence it's not really a fair comparison.

Ten's new Bondi Rescue did well off the end of Jamie Oliver, scoring over 1 million and was the 13th most watch show.

And the overall winner was:

I was just looking back at Tuesday's ratings and I reckon if Rove stays like that for another 4 shows and isn't cancelled then it'll be just for the sake of having Aussie TV on the air.  Other programs have done better in that time slot and still been shifted around and cancelled.  I think that he was a bit off his game with all the changes and might settle into it.  New set, new couch, new clothes, new sideburns, new stupid little mustache that is just barely there and makes him look like he's going for the 14 year old look.  I've gotta say that with the clothes and hair, it looks like he hired a stylist that got mad at him... it just isn't Rove I don't think.

The only reason why Neighbours is still on Australian TV is that it still popular (for some reason overseas) and thats the only avenue that Channel 10 makes money from Neighbours. It isn't rating very well to really keep it on the air is it?

For those who actually see the occasional Home & Away, you would have known that Flynn was dying (he finally did the other day) and nothing (except maybe a wedding) boosts ratings more than a major cast member karking it. Remember A Country Practice? Biggest rating show of its time and held the record for a long time I think. Now everyone is on the bandwagon. When ratings drop, who can get married or die?

Don't forget Tash is locked up in some shed as well. Oh my God, the DRAMA! Pity it's all so cheesy as reported earlier by Frankie. Nice one. Some of the stories are just ridiculous. eg if you find someone locked in an underground cellar, do you run to the Police and friends, or back to the people who did it? Duh! Makes you sick.

Thanks again to eBroadcast's eNews, here's abit about Melbourne's ratings on Monday night:

Seven won last night’s ratings, for the sixth Monday in a row, with DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES once again topping the charts.

Seven’s sizzling US sensation drew last night’s biggest audiences in Melbourne and Australia; with 670,000 and 2,009,000 viewers respectively. In its third week on air, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES continues to be a ratings phenomenon.

TODAY TONIGHT, hosted by Naomi Robson, was Melbourne’s third most popular show for the night. It drew 406,000 viewers and beat Nine’s A Current Affair by 7,000.

SEVEN NEWS also continued on its winning path. Last night’s bulletin had an average audience of 405,000 – dominating its timeslot, and 21,000 viewers ahead of Nine’s news.

Seven Melbourne won last night’s ratings with a primetime share of 31.5% compared to Nine’s 27.9%, Ten’s 18.3%, the ABC’s 16.8% and 5.6% for SBS.

Wow. Desparate Housewives 2m? That's amazing. Does this happen often I wonder?

Supernatural has dropped off hasn't it? I think it was my fault. I watched Millionaire, then still used to the line up I watched last year, Millionaire then Cold Case, I forgot to change to Ten to watch Supernatural! Couldn't believe it! No wonder the ratings dropped!

Desperate rarely gets below 2 million Phantom

Yes, tis a pity about Supernatural - it's really getting lost in that timeslot now with all of the competition. I really think Ten needs to move it to a showcase timeslot such as Sunday 8.30, where SVU got slaughted by CSI this week, due to being a too-like genre.
Posted by: elie06, February 21, 2006, 11:13am; Reply: 239
Ten's probably happy with their ratings last night. I mean seriously, everyone knew they wouldn't win against Desperate Housewives. I do agree that Supernatural should get moved to a better timeslot. 700k is not enough viewers for a show that is liked so much. I think people just hate the time it's on.

Maybe if they move Supernatural to Wednesday nights, after House? They actually might beat Seven that night. Well maybe not beat them, but get close.

Actually, what about after Medium on Thursday's? Really, any day besides Monday. OMG, actually Thursday would be very smart don't you think? They could call it Supernatural thursday with Smallville, Medium, and Supernatural. Lol, I think they should do it. Anyone agree?

Looking at how well Enough Rope did, you can blame that for the lost ratings for Supernatural. I watched Supernatural, but flicked over to ABC during the ads to see Billy Connolly. Luckily I taped Enough Rope as well.

I'm still bewildered as to how Rove Live is beating The O.C. in ratings... (you pissed me off)

Oh, and I hope Futurama's ratings pick up a little more. I'm pleased with The Simpsons performance although the episode was pretty weak last night.

I was about to say that, lol. Anyways, OC is about 900k each week. It's good ratings for a teen show, that only teens watch, not to mention not many teens can watch a lot of tv.

I dunno. I'm 16 and I watch the show every week, but are there any "adults" that watch the show? I'm still dumbstruck with the ratings of Dancing with the *coughs* Black Holes. And yes, this is coming from a person who's watched it at least once. Sure, I'm not expecting "Great" ratings from The O.C., but it would be nice if they were around the 900k mark.

Although I think Ten were directly to blame for the lackluster ratings of last week's episode as the ad was so boring! Although the episode was pretty solid (and we get to see Jimmy get beat up! Yaay! :-p).

You have to remeber DWTS was on...

Quoted from elie06
I was about to say that, lol. Anyways, OC is about 900k each week. It's good ratings for a teen show, that only teens watch, not to mention not many teens can watch a lot of tv.

Yes DWTS pulls in a greater amount of plus 39 year old people, which is why you rarely hear Channel 10 saying they are worried about over all Ratings, as it is the 16-39 year old base they really are appealing to, and usually dominate that group from 6pm to Midnight, like this for that age group over the last week in Melbourne:

ABC: 8.1%
Seven: 29.5%
Nine: 27.5%
Ten: 31.5%
SBS: 3.3%

A good 2% up on the closest opposition channel, which gives them good pull with there advertisers, and why Ten are usually the ones making the best profit of all the stations when the end of year results come out.

Companies like Pepsi (with Pepsi-Max), Apple (with the iPod), Clearisil,  Maybelline, Leg Waxers, Lady Shavers, Twisties, Just Jeans/Jeans West, whatever the Male equivalent of those things are(like Links and etc), 3 and Virgin Mobile, etc; they all advertise heavily on Ten, as the 16-39 demographic is what they are also targeting there products at. Ten give them that, 900,000 plus people watching the O.C. in the 16-39 age group, is exactly the target market someone like iPod wants for it's product (next time you watch shows like the O.C. watch what ads are shown, and you will see what I am saying), Ten make a fortune out of those shows.


Could not find a current article on it all, however this is one from 1995: The Media Report it still holds true though, replace shows mentioned like Picket Fences with Supernatural, Beverly Hills 90210 with the O.C. and you get the same thing happening now (plus sometimes what they are using as products in those shows are often advertised in the ad breaks as well).

1. How in the hell can 20 to 1 rate at 1.27 million?
2. How in the hell can Today Tonight & Seven News rate at 1.74 & 1.43 million?

That is so true. Apparently, 80% of advertisements are targeted at an audience below 40 years old. Ten dominates this area all the time, but is dragged down in the 55+ area, where they get around 10% of the total audience.

That's what makes Ten so profitable.

Ten needs to change its shedule for Mondays. I hate seeing Supernatural do badly just because it has a terrible lead up from previous programs.

In my honest opinion, both Numbers and Courting Alex should be cancelled. They are two shows which copy every other show in their genre. Ten needs to move Supernatural to after Medium on Thursday.

On Monday they need something new. What about The Wedge? They have been advertising that a bit.

I'm guessing <--dangerous thing, that Supernatural won't be pulled unless it's still rating low in a couple of weeks which would mean that Commander in Chief continues to do as well as it is.

lol... how the hell did 20 to 1 rate like that?  It must be the moon.

Numbers is actually doing pretty decent err.. numbers opposite Desperate Housewives. I think Ten would be happy with 800+ viewers in a very tough timeslot.

I agree with Supernatural though - where did it's audience go?
Posted by: ozdvl, February 28, 2006, 1:23pm; Reply: 274
our household is always tuned to supernatural, so this audience member still loves the show ;). I do agree though, i wish they would put it on after or before another great show..

There is no Moon visable at the moment. It's a new moon, maybe that's it Dean. I think you are on to something. Supernatural is doing well in the USA and I for one love the show. I don't get why it's ratings have dropped. Maybe everyone is checking out the newer shows. Go figure??!! ::)
Posted by: 80 (Guest), February 28, 2006, 3:29pm; Reply: 276
It was up against the first episode of Commander in Cheif which took almost all the viewers from the look of it.  I wasn't going to watch it but didn't bother changing the channel straight away and got sucked in and I really wanted to dislike the show lol  :P  Hopefully it'll just be the first episode that was good and I won't like it any further because I don't like the idea of me liking Gina Davis in that role and the show sounds like a stupid idea but I liked it anyway.  It was dissapointingly very good.  I might end up watching it every week against my will  ;D

Numb3rs is one of the biggset shows CBS has. The #1 show on Friday and dominates its timeslot. It wont get cancelled for years, tenn nedd to try and make this show a hit.

I cannot see numb3rs lasting that long myself. This show was interesting enough for me to watch the first 6 or so episodes completely. After that more interesting shows came on and I chose them over numb3rs because frankly numb3rs began to give me the pips. Just because a show rates well in the US does not mean it will do so here. Look at Supernatural, for example.

The fact is, that Ten is probably happy with their ratings for Monday night. I mean, it is up against Desperate Housewives night. That's tough. But still, I just don't see why they have put Numbers before Supernatural. The shows don't have anything in common.

I still think Supernatural should move to Thursday's after Medium. Or Wednesday's after House (I know Supernatural and House have nothing in common, but I know house gets great ratings, and so should Supernatural)! It's one of the best shows on TV atm. I really wish Channel 7 had the rights to it though. They'd know what to do with it. They could put it after Lost.

I doubt very highly that Supernatural will be cancelled (mainly cause Numbers and Courting Alex are doing pretty badly too), but I don't like one of my favourite shows recieving just decent ratings.

I think you'll see Ten do something with Supernatural - it was it's major drawcard drama for 2006 and the figures it got on Monday aren't really acceptable by anyone's standards..

Magdas Funny Bits is gone......it should have never have been created & aired in the first place - its nothing but television on a very, very, very cheap scale.

Yeah ,originally i thought it was going to be old bits from fast forward ,and even then she only had one funny character ,lynne. But these rehashed characters are sooo unfunny ,and lets face it except lynne none of them were funny in the first place ,especially the annoying pixie-anne. Look for it to be mercifully given the chop very soon.

I'm so relieved that The O.C. managed to reach the 800k mark again. I'd hate for my favourite TV drama right now to get the axe just because Ten isn't doing a very good job advertising it. And it's nice to see The Simpsons and Futurama are both rating consistently well (considering the target audience of both shows).

And what's with all these terrible gameshows rating so damn well? Grrr...

BTW, how did SVU rate on Sunday night? I was surprised it wasn't on the top ten.

I actually watched Prison break for the first time, and I thought it was good. I watched it to the end, so that's something. But what happens when you have Prison Break on one tv, and House on the other. How do they rate that? Do they both get a point? Maybe there were only 1 million viewers but they watched two shows!! :D

Quoted from fajo

Yep, it is a rather small amount of people:

From Oztam: Aust TV Audience Measurement.

There are 765 Homes in Sydney, 705 in Melbourne, 615 in Brisbane, 475 in Adelaide and 475 in Perth with Ratings Boxes counting what is watched (a total 3035 homes).

So the reality is that from 3035 Homes, when something like Dancing with the Stars gets ratings of 2.2 million, and that accounts for 25% of viewers, then 758 (rounded) Ratings Boxes have registered that is what the whole viewing population of Australia is watching, and the other 75% (2277 Rating Boxes) are watching the other channels.

When you see the Weekly Ratings it means actual boxes/households tuned in (in brackets, and rounded) for the week to each station are:

Seven = 31.3% (949)

Nine = 26.8% (814)

Ten = 20.7 % (629)

ABC = 16.3% (494)

SBS = 4.9 % (149)

So that is how it is calculated each day, week, month, and year, and those amount of households determine what is a ratings success and what is not, Pay TV is measured separately with 1,000 ratings boxes/households used.

This is a Map of the Areas that have Oztam Ratings Boxes in there homes: Metropolitan Coverage Maps so even though there are only a few boxes, the coverage is pretty good to judge a watching pattern by different demographics I guess.

However I think it shows why the ratings seem out of kilter to what is watched by some at times, like if you work in an office, and say it has 100 people working there, and they all talk about lets say Supernatural, then what you see as what has rated well will not seem true to you, as your peers around you make it seem different.

Quoted from fajo
What about when you watch one, and tape one or more others?


Not completely sure about how that exactly works myself, Oztam say this though:

Data Collection:
Once a household has been recruited, all television sets are monitored by the meter system. The meter records and stores, time, date, television set on/off, channel to which each television set is tuned, capturing all broadcast viewing. All residents and guests register their television usage using a remote control.


So I do not know if that means the system also monitors the things you are recording as well.

OUCH. Ten must be in damage control today. 2 huge flops last night. EHC and Futurama did very poorly. Why didn't Ghost Whisperer get more ratings? I guess 1.07 is good though.

Oh, and as for Desperate Housewives versus the Academy Awards, it will be a clear win for the women in wysteria lane.

Disaster for Futurama. Channel Ten best move that back to where it was next to the Simpsons.



It was after the Simpsons. Probably a repeat though.

I think everyone will already know the results of the Oscars so why watch? There is one female winner who reprtedly thanked every man and their dog - how many acceptance speeches can you really sit through??

Is a rating figure such as 1.43 million the average or the reach for a TV show?
Posted by: Rockchick, March 7, 2006, 5:19pm; Reply: 318
1.4 would probably give you the top show of the night in most cases. Occassionally you'll have a blockbuster show like Desperate Housewives, Dancing With The Stars or the grand final of Idol that would achieve 2 million viewers.

If a show can achieve the 1 million mark, it is almost gauranteed another series next year. If you are sitting under 800,000 viewers, you really should be nervous.

I'm glad that Biggest Loser, Simpsons and Futurama rated so well. Although I'm not too pleased with The O.C.'s ratings. It was *sort of* picking up last week, but it's taking a slump as the lowest rated episode in this season thus far.

I was hoping Rove's ratings would have dropped enough to get the axing it sorely deserves. Darn.

And how does The Bill rate so well? I once watched an episode, and it was the most poorly written, most poorly acted slop I've seen on TV in ages.

You really think they'll axe Rove? It's the only late night talk/variety show we have. I guess they could give us delayed telecasts of Jay Leno instead...

I reckon Rove is alright. I reckon his format is stuffed but as a presenter he is normally pretty good. He's not real funny lately and seems to be trying too hard but there are some good reasons why this is.. I figure his 'outside of TV' life must be pretty stressful for him at the moment for obvious reasons. Perhaps he should take some time off and concentrate on the things that realy matter - like family - maybe he is, I don't really know, but it feels to me like he is trying to hold on to something too tight. What does TV really matter anyway? How rich do people need to be? Celebrities/egos generally always stuff this balance up. He should take some real time off, kick back and concentrate on what's important cause at the moment his show suck bad!!

What's happened to Channel 9? They seemed to have really dropped the ball. Only 2 or 3 shows in the top 10 the last couple of nights. If  they are relying on the Commonwealth Games to get them back up there, they are misguided. That will be over in a couple of weeks and then everyone will resume normal programming. Seven seem to have all the good shows at the moment, so good on for them for sticking it to Nine. Not still the one............

Disappointed to see House's ratings down from last week, but good to see it still in the top 3.

Also, Yolanda's win on Temptation was a big ratings win for them. Shows that word does get around, and people like to see people win big on games shows.

Yes I agree Normangerman! House will have a longer life span because Prisonbreak is well.... about a prison break. It can't last forever although it's been on hiatus for months now in the US. They are stretching the show out for all it's worth. When the brother went in to save his brother from execution the brother on death row had ONE month to go before his execution. Pl-eeze. Finish the show guys and make it worthwhile.

Exactly. When they are short of a story they pull an old one out of the vault and put that on. Most of the stories are just a rehash. maybe people are too tired to change the channel or turn off the tv after the news has been on or something. I rarely watch unless they have a story that interests me - I rarely watch...

That's 30,000 & 40,000 respectively. It seems they round off the numbers, but it must be around 10,000 difference.  It isn't much in the scheme of things when we're dealing with large numbers. I think Seven would be very happy with the numbers for Ghost Whisperer.

They do break out. In TV week last week, the creator of the show, Paul Scheuring said that the show will run for about 44 episodes - the first 14 or so in the prison and the rest while they're in hiding or something like that.
and prison break isnt overrated, i think house is becoming a bit overrated. i taped it last wednesday after watching an ad for it, and finally watched it today. wasnt all that good, really.
but its funny, because theyre both on the same channel in the US :P

Here's Monday nights ratings, courtesy eNews.

The highlight of the night?

Definately The Biggest Loser, which is simply the best, most engrossing TV show on at the moment. It has everything - Queen Bea Tracey and her molls Flamboyant Artie & Damsel-In-Distress Fiona, Arch Nemesis Big Wal, Head-strong Kristie, Silent-type Shane. I would go out on a limb and say this is probably the best reality program ever produced here - bettering Big Brother season 1.

Anyway, the figures are:

Programme Rankings:
?m
1. Desperate Housewives Seven 1.84
2. Seven News Seven 1.48
3. Today Tonight Seven 1.46
4. The Biggest Loser Ten 1.39
5. 20 to 1 Nine 1.36
6. Home and Away Seven 1.31
7. National Nine News Nine 1.30
8. Commander In Chief Seven 1.29
9. A Current Affair Nine 1.28
10. Who Wants to be a Millionaire Nine 1.23
11. The Great Outdoors Seven 1.18
12. Cold Case Nine 1.11
13. Australian Story ABC 0.99
14. Temptation Nine 0.98
15. ABC News ABC 0.96

Courting Alex 0.91m Supernatural 0.75m Deal or No Deal 0.84m
Numb3rs 0.87m Andrew Denton 0.77m Family Feud 0.50m

They should get all those ratings boxes and give them to decent people who watch Supernatural. It's heaps better than the other shows. Cold Case is a good show but Supernatural is better I think. They used to ge tthe people from Millionaire leading in to Cold Case, but last night 10 conveniently ran their 8.30 show over time so that when Millionaire finished Supernatural hadn't started yet, so we didn't miss the start. Good work for once 10.

At least Bert is going alright on 20 to 1. I picked Steven Bradbury to be the no. 1 last week. It doesn't matter how many times you watch it, it is bloody fantastic, and funny seeing the others fall over!

Yeah,noticed that last night..Numbers usually starts during 20/1 and i have to tape the end of it as well as millionaire,but last night Courting Alex just went on & on..i started taping the last three on 20/1 in preparation but didn't need to..

Steven Bradbury was funny,but not as funny as the two guys coming off the bikes at exactly the same time..

Posted by: 80 (Guest), March 15, 2006, 11:17pm; Reply: 361
Wow, I hadn't paid attention, so I'm supprised to know that those are improved ratings for it.  I think maybe Rove could do better if it was moved somewhere that had a strong audience leading into it, but I don't see anything like that helping the OC drastically.  
I haven't looked at the schedules all that much and was just thinking that despite that lack of knowledge, that there isn't a lot of great stuff on now anyway and because of that, moving Rove to after something that had a big audience might be easy.  That got me thinking that it's really odd, with only a few things having large groups of die hard fans at the moment... or so it seems to me, that nothing is really moved around in attempt for better ratings when in the past there's been good stuff on and it gets moved all over the place and then cancelled.  Nothing even gets cancelled now.  Pickings must be slim when it comes to good TV... or perhaps I just need to watch more of it to know what I'm talking about.

I watched Rove on Tuesday and it was really hilarious.  I don't think anyone is talking about Tuesday's show near the water cooler though.  He's also finally gotten his hair halfway decent looking and seemed to have found a plausable compromise between what we're used to seeing him wear and the totally made over look he came into the new season though.  For a guy who's show is failing, he really did a great job and handled himself great.  Maybe Rove has gotten his groove back... or found new mojo... or went back in time and got the old mojo back... or something, but it was good whatever it was.
Posted by: Rockchick, March 16, 2006, 9:08am; Reply: 362
I've always liked Rove and I think he's very underestimated as a performer. I think history will show him as one of our greatest.

Anyway, to the all-important Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony. Fantastic figures, but I think Nine may have been expecting more. When you think that Australian Idol was peaking at 4 million..

ps. Ten did very well, scoring over a million viewers between 7pm and 9.30pm and gaining second place for the night.

I think if anything Rove has been overrated in recent times what with his gold logies and all. And I agree with meandean,last tuesdays show was highly entertaining and looks like rove might be adjusting to his new format.

Im happy that channel nine did so well with the com games,3.47 mil is a great figure.

3.47 million for the opening games? That's pretty good, but I think Nine would have expected higher. I can't believe House actually rated that well against it.

Maybe Nine won't win these two weeks after all. I certainly hope they don't.

Just read on Enews the opening ceremony peaked at 4.019 million :o

Mmm you may have something there that could also explain the ratings for Dancing With The Stars

I am continually puzzled how that waste of space 'Dancing With the Stars' rates so well.

I think it's just good old fashioned 'FAMILY' entertainment. It's not offensive, the whole clan can watch it. Not much of that anymore these days..

The Olympics Closing Ceremony rated at around 7 million, and World Idol rated around 4-5 million (which incidentally was in the Summer ratings, which would have been bad)

Actually I read this in Herald Sun a few weeks ago.

The Sydney Olympics Opening Ceremony is the most watched show in Australian History with a massive 10.4 million people watching.

I watched Rove on Tuesday and it was really hilarious.  I don't think anyone is talking about Tuesday's show near the water cooler though.  He's also finally gotten his hair halfway decent looking and seemed to have found a plausable compromise between what we're used to seeing him wear and the totally made over look he came into the new season though.  For a guy who's show is failing, he really did a great job and handled himself great.  Maybe Rove has gotten his groove back... or found new mojo... or went back in time and got the old mojo back... or something, but it was good whatever it was.


I totally agree. The show is definately variety rather than talkshow and you can see that him and Pete are working so hard to make it work. I love the new style and hope it picks up.

Basically the games are rating better then all except the 2000 olympics which is understandable.

And the L & O SVU is rating well without CSI,it usually rates below .80 million.

Futurama should be taken from sun night and left for during the week where it rates far better. EHC would do better on a weekday as well..

There are some classic movies there, but Sound of Music? You've got to be kidding! I am so sick of that crap, but they seem to replay it every 6 months. Put on something decent for god's sake - what about some classic western or something. The Magnificent Seven or a Clint Eastwood movie. Sound of Music makes me sick >:(

But in 1977, The Sound Of Music was cool. Actually, any blockbuster on TV was cool. It was pre-VCR when TV or the cinema was the only choice..

Anyhoo, here's the ratings for Monday. A blockbuster for Nine, scoring a rare win over Desperate Housewives. Thanks to eNews:

Seven News wins network. Today Tonight wins network.

Home and Away defeats The Biggest Loser. Desperate Housewives scores the highest audience of any programme head-to-head against the Commonwealth Games. Commander In Chief retains 80% of its audience of last Monday – against the Commonwealth Games.


Sunrise – with extended and extensive live coverage of Cyclone Larry – obliterates Today. Early Sunrise (6:00-7:00am) more than doubles Early Today. Sunrise (7:00-9:00am) nearly doubles Today.

Even though i can see why some people love it i don't think the Sound of Music was ever cool even in the 60's.

a great win for nine,love beating desperate housewives ;D

Wow. Neighbours is actually attracting decent ratings for a change. :-o
Although I don't watch, I'm disappointed with Supernatural's ratings, and I'm glad Courting Alex is taking a break, replaced by Bondi Rescue as of next week. Perhaps Everybody Hates Chris would make a better replacement.

Also, here's what Nine had to say about last night, thanks to eNews also:

Dancing With The Stars loses almost 1 million viewers.

On Monday night, Nine's telecast of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games crushed Seven's Desperate Housewives and Commander In Chief. Last night it was Seven's Dancing With The Stars that took a beating.

Nine's Commonwealth Games coverage peaked at a thumping 2.688 million viewers across the five capital cities last night giving Nine a national share of 41.7 per cent. Sydney had a 42.1 per cent share, Melbourne a whopping 49.9 and Brisbane 39.6.

Nine's coverage also cleaned up across all major demographics with a 41.7 per cent national share for People 25-54 and a 36.3 share for People 16-39.

Seven's Dancing With The Stars 4: Most Memorable Moments was left flat-footed by Nine's Commonwealth Games coverage. Dancing averaged 1.286 million between 8.30pm and 9.30pm last night - a drop of nearly one million viewers from last week (2.225 million).

Another big winner was National Nine News which averaged 1.509 million nationally to beat Seven News (1.394 million). In Sydney, National Nine News averaged 381,000 to Seven News's 369,000 and in Melbourne Nine's news averaged 481,000 to easily beat Seven's news (347,000).

In Melbourne, A Current Affair cleaned up with 435,000 viewers to Today Tonight's 401,000.

Nine should enjoy all the ratings they get now cause after the Games they won't get any.
They don't deserve any anyways, with their low quality shows which can put people to sleep.

In Melbourne, again thanks to eNews:

GTV Channel Nine had another massive ratings victory last night with top figures for the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, National Nine News and A Current Affair. Meanwhile, Seven's decision to put a first-run episode of Prison Break up against the Games failed dismally.

Nine scored a whopping 46.0 per cent All People share (6pm to midnight) in Melbourne, more than double Seven's 21.5. Ten had 19.7.

Nine's Commonwealth Games telecast peaked a 799,000 viewers in Melbourne and an awesome 2.416 million nationally.

National Nine News (464,000 viewers - average), presented by Peter Hitchener, sprinted past Seven News (365,000) and A Current Affair (445,000) crossed the finish line well ahead of Seven's Today Tonight (386,000).

Seven added another defeat to their list this week after Desperate Housewives, Commander In Chief and Dancing With The Stars all failed to shine against Nine's Commonwealth Games coverage. Prison Break performed poorly with 1.187 million viewers nationally including 357,000 in Melbourne. Seven's prison drama shed more than 300,000 viewers from last week (1.512 million).

It was an interesting experiment though -  a previously high rating program up against an event of the magnitude of the games. Are the viewers of Prison Break fickle or didn't they realise it was on? I bet they taped it though and will be back when the games are over. I bet if Lawn Bowls was on they would have watched Prison Break instead. John Steffenson's win in the 400m was a great highlight to date. We don't get many wins in athletics.

Wow. House's performance last night was pretty darn impressive considering the fact that it was a repeat, and wasn't over-advertised.

Let's hope that the Commonwealth Games will give Dancing with the Stars the axing it sorely deserves.  :D (crosses fingers)

Wasn't that on during the afternoon? That is normally a non ratings period so I'm not even sure there would be any ratings figures for it. Rockchick is the ratings guru so can probably answer that one.

Signed your petition too.

It isn't when big events like Bathurst and the Australian GP are on. Over 1.7 million people watched Bathurst and there were more people that watched the Australian GP.

Thanks for signing my petition

Are you sure?

1.5 million is isn't good. I heard it rated better than Bathurst wich over 1.7 million people watched. Was 1.5 million the average or the peak?

1.5 was the average, don't have the peak figure. Bathurst averaged 1.276 and peaked at 1.7, but that average is over 7 hours instead of less than 2 for an F1 race

Also thanks to eNews, here's what Nine had to say about last night:


A massive peak audience of 3.12 million people watched the Nine Network's telecast of the spectacular Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony across the five capital cities last night.

The ceremony, presented by Ken Sutcliffe, Ray Martin and Nicole Livingstone, was seen by a peak audience of 720,000 in Sydney, 1.395 million in Melbourne, 460,000 in Brisbane, 278,000 in Adelaide and 268,000 in Perth.

Nine finished the night with a whopping 48 per cent All People national share, more than 28 points ahead of Seven's 19.3. Ten had 16.1. Nine's share was 40.9 per cent in Sydney, an enormous 64 per cent in Melbourne and 41.3 per cent in Brisbane.

Another big winner was National Nine News Sunday which averaged 2.024 million - 552,000 in Sydney, 759,000 in Melbourne, 407,000 in Brisbane, 252,000 in Adelaide, and 203,000 in Perth.

So Seven did very well against the games with Ice Age and their News (can't believe Ice Age actually got over 1 mil viewers). Australia's Brainiest...did shocking!! As did every other Ten show that night, including SVU, and Futurama.

Ten should have a better night tonight with Bondi Rescue replacing Courting Alex (finally!!!). Hopefully this will lead to good ratings for the much hyped episode of Supernatural.

Very nice ratings for Seven  :) They do have the best shows after all. Desperate Housewives grabbed excellent ratings, higher than it's usual 1.8 mil viewers.

Commander in Chief, on the other hand, while it still did well with about 1.17 mil viewers, is not up to it's usual ratings which used to be 1.35 million.

I assume Supernatural got around 800k in ratings. Ten really needs to move it's timeslot, to a more premiere time like Sunday nights. It's such a good show, and last night's episode was brilliant.

That's exactly what I think.

Also, I think it must have gotten around 700k viewers on Monday or more, it had quite a bit of advertising over here in Melbourne, radio, tv. Still, it should get the same amount of viewers as Desperate Housewives in my opinion.

Boy, what a topsy-turvey world is was in the ratings last night!

In an Alice In Wonderland scenario, Today Tonight was number 1 and outrated House. House scored over 1.5 million, Biggest Loser got stronger, and Prison Break fell dramatically. But Nine came first, and Ten scored massively with a 27, and Seven came third.

Give me a drink somebody.

Thanks to eNews:

Seven News wins Sydney and Melbourne. Seven News wins network ? up 14% on Nine. Today Tonight wins Sydney and Melbourne. Today Tonight wins network ? up 41% on A Current Affair.

Home and Away up 43% on Temptation. Beyond Tomorrow peaks at 1.14 million. Prison Break peaks at 1.30 million and racks up robust shares across all key demographics on an atypical Wednesday (Nine?s pre-emption of regular programming for AFL in the southern markets). Air Crash Investigations peaks at 1.06 million.

In the top ten for 16-39s: Prison Break, Home and Away and Beyond Tomorrow. In the top ten for 25-54s: Prison Break, Today Tonight, Home and Away and Seven News.

Deal or No Deal +76% on Bert. Sunrise belts Today ? Sunrise +93% on Today.

What in the world?

Damn, I was worried about Prison Break losing viewers. It's one of those shows where, if you miss it one week, you are lost and can't watch it again. Hopefully next week it's ratings pick up.

How did Seven Lose? Most of its shows are in the top ten, and Today Tonight (very supsringly) came first, and actually beat House.

Anyways, they will definitely come first tonight, and most likely win for the week as well.

I completely agree with Phantom. Nine just doesn't have any entertaining shows.

I'm really hoping Seven wins this week, and if it doesn't I'm nearly 100% sure viewers will switch back to Seven next week.

meh.. nine won the night so Im happy ;)

nine & ten have the best shows,seven has some good stuff but they generally stuff them around,like jag,stargate

the footy show rated through the roof in melbourne which was a key reason nine won the night.

Glad to see that Ten rated fairly well last night. NCIS had me hooked last night, so I think I'll be tuning in again next week. However, it seems a little bland considering that Kate is gone. :-( The new girl is so not attractive. :-p

Nine and ten pushing seven to third is mega  8)

Ncis was excellent last night and I kinda prefer Ziva to Kate,more relaxed and one of the boys. Kate was too uptight.

Expect them to win tonight, and I sincerely hope Nine ends up with 0% share, but I highly doubt that happening :P

One martini, coming right up. Shaken, not stirred. (shakennotstirred)

Judging by the ratings points, it would seem the viewers were the winners in the battle of the networks with the race remaining close and competitive (for last night, at least).

A mere .6 point separating Nine from Ten with Seven isn't exactly distant third.

Another strong performance by Nine last night, due I think to the AFL in some states, and a much softer Lost, which is down nearly half a million. Here's the rundown, thanks to eBroadcast's eNews:

Seven News wins Sydney and Melbourne. Seven News wins network – up 12% on Nine.

Today Tonight wins Sydney and Melbourne. Today Tonight wins network – up 34% on ACA.

Home and Away wins @ 7:00pm – up 8% on Loser and up 44% on Temptation. Las Vegas peaks at 1.30 million and wins its timeslot in 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s. Lost peaks at 1.53 million and wins its timeslot in total people and every key demographic. The Amazing Race peaks at 1.13 million and wins its timeslot in 16-39s and 18-49s.

In the top ten for 16-39s: Lost (#1), The Amazing Race (#2), Las Vegas, Home and Away and American Dad. In the top ten for 25-54s: Lost (#1), The Amazing Race (#2), Las Vegas (#3), Home and Away, Today Tonight and Seven News.

Deal or No Deal +59% on Bert. Sunrise +73% on Today.

Programming note: Nine’s pre-emption of regular programming 8:30-11:30pm for AFL coverage in the southern markets. Seven wins 6:00-10:30pm across Australia: Seven 30.2%, Nine 30.0%, Ten 22.1%, ABC 13.3%, SBS 4.4%. Nine’s Comm Games bloated 29 share point week-to-date lead on Sunday shrinks to 4 share points by Thursday – despite AFL.

The F1 ratings were bad. That is 400,000 less than last year. I hope Mark Webber wins a race soon because then everyone in Australia will start to watch F1 because Australians only watch sports that they are wining.

e.g Cricket is the most boring sport on the planet but alot of Ausralians watch it because Australia is good.

Again, thanks to enews:

Nine Network - 1.594 Million Watch Eddie McGuire's Final Millionaire

A peak audience of 1.594 million viewers across the five capital cities watched Eddie McGuire's emotional farewell to Who Wants To Be A Millionaire last night. Millionaire averaged 1.343 million - its highest figure for 2006.

In Melbourne, the great figures for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire were supported by an impressive performance by Cold Case (338,000) which easily beat Seven's Commander In Chief (312,000). Cold Case (1.099 million) also beat Commander In Chief (1.072 million) nationally.

Seven's drama posted its lowest figure outside the Commonwealth Games and is off nearly 700,000 from its debut (1.746 million).

Seven's Desperate Housewives (1.783 million) is also dropping. It also posted its lowest figure outside the Commonwealth Games.

20 To 1, hosted by Gold Logie nominee Bert Newton, was too strong for Seven's The Great Outdoors. It beat Seven's travel program nationally (1.265 million v 1.149 million) as well as in Melbourne (373,000 v 320,000).

Nine leads the week so far (Sunday/Monday) with a 29.4 per cent All People share. Seven is on 28.0 and Ten 23.2.

House is doing extremely well ,and well deserved too.

Neighbours seems to be picking up as well.

Wow! Impressive night for Channel 10 and in my opinion, they deserve it, it really looks like they are working hard.

Thank God you're here was really funny, and I'm glad to see so many people tuned in to watch it.

It's nice to see The Biggest Loser rating so well too. I expect to see it get around 1.5 million or over in the last few weeks it is on for daily shows. I am sure the final will attract over 2 million viewers.

A one off, but still a good win for Ten. Neighbours is picking up, nearing that 1 million viewers barrier. Now that a few of the more annoying characters are gone and a few more interesting ones are returning (Robinson Family) the series should be picking up.

Out of interest, great episode of House last night.

Nice to see Ten rating so well. Odd that Neighbour's ratings are climbing. I'm actually finding the show even harder to watch now. I find the new Robinson character and *shudders* Ned to be the most unbearably painful people to watch on television. Their "acting" skills are abysmal. Katya has a long way to go but her acting's relatively poor as well, but at least she's easy on the eyes, and enjoyable to watch.

I missed "Thank God You're Here". What's that like? I'm assuming it's reality TV trash but I could be wrong.

I can't believe you guys don't know who Shane Bourne is! I guess there's a generation who never grew up with the Great Aussie Joke! I think he's great.

Anyhow, here's what happened in the ratings on Thursday night, thanks to eNews:

Seven wins primetime. Seven is number 1 in all people, 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s.

Seven News wins Sydney. Seven News wins network ? up 14% on Nine.
Today Tonight wins Sydney. Today Tonight wins network ? up 15% on ACA.

Home and Away +49% on Temptation. Las Vegas peaks at 1.27 million and wins its timeslot in 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s. Lost peaks at 1.50 million (up 37% on Medical Stories and Medium) and dominates in every demographic. The Amazing Race peaks at 1.24 million and wins its timeslot in 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s (Amazing is up 8% on Footy Show and up 6% on Law and Order in total viewers).

In the top ten for 16-39s: Lost (#1), The Amazing Race (#3), Las Vegas, Home and Away and American Dad. In the top ten for 25-54s: Lost (#1), The Amazing Race (#3), Las Vegas, Home and Away, Today Tonight and Seven News.

Deal or No Deal nearly doubles Bert. Sunrise nearly doubles Today.

It's looking that way I feel,both prison break and lost are fading bit by bit,desperate housewives as well. But that's to be expected,all shows peak then drop off. Now Ill really be happy when dancing with the 'stars' starts to fade & things get back to normal.

Posted by: sillygostly, April 9, 2006, 5:45pm; Reply: 468
What's the big deal with Desperate Housewives, Lost and Prison Break declining in ratings? In proportion to every other program that night, they pretty much outrate them all. So what the hell is Seven complaining about? And besides, Easter's just around the corner so ratings will typically be lower anyway. Seeing as that new episodes (at least on Ten) of The Simpsons, Futurama, The O.C., House, NCIS, Medium, and the Law & Order franchise have been delayed for a week.
Posted by: elie06, April 9, 2006, 7:50pm; Reply: 469
We'll see what happens but I really think Seven has no need to worry. Lost will most likely increase in ratings. DH isn't dropping ratings at all (you have to remember monday night was eddie's final time on millionare) and i'm not sure what will happen with prison break.

It's amazing what people will watch when there isn't much on..

Hope the ratings die down, Kochy will be getting a big head. It was nice to see some more of Jennifer Hawkins..There are always some funny segments and some good ones like the people meeting after a croc attack, plus Toni Basil - Hey Mickey! Seem to have a good mix going.

With Millionaire gone until June / July, 9 might do OK with Cold Case and Hotel Babylon with 20 to 1 as a lead in. Housewives only has Great Outdoors as a lead in, amd "Make me Beautiful please"? Please. Just another Extreme Makeover ripoff. Double Supernatural is tempting too...

It's not hard to see why WATN is rating so highly,the same reason 20/1 and other similar shows rate well. People love nostalgia pure & simple.
I love the band reunions at the end,pseudo echo last week and last night the incomparable uncanny x-men!
Everybody wants to work indeed :)

Can't believe over 1 million tuned into a recap of Desperate Housewives, lol. Good ratings for all channels today, every channel had a top show.

Very nice to see Supernatural edging 1 million viewers. I had a feeling it'd do better in this timeslot. Great episode last night also.
I'm a little suprised about the ratings of Hotel Babylon. It wasn't up against any amazing. Just a repeat of Supernatural and Make me Beautiful Please. Why did it only get 1.01 mil viewers? That's a little weird.

Is it next week when the non ratings period begins? Or was it this week? Does anyone know?

Cool. Obvious win for seven last night.

How do 2 hours of repeats of The Simpsons get over 1 mil viewers. I mean, i love the show, but it's a repeat. How many times can you watch the same episode?
Posted by: normangerman (Guest), April 12, 2006, 10:58pm; Reply: 485
I can watch the same eps a few times... they're still funny. Just don't watch the 6pm eps all the time, and there'll be no trouble.

I can watch most of the classic,anything to '98,simpsons over and over. Love em! though some are a little tiresome but even those still have moments you never get tired of. but i rarely watch any eps post 1998.

I find it really easy to watch The Simpsons on Saturday or Sunday mornings on Fox8, but I can't sit through 2 hours of it on Channel 10, probably because in primetime I expect something new, not a repeat.

Ive said this before but it depends on the show,some shows hold up well with repeats,others dont. Csi and ncis are so good repeat or no it doesn't matter..i rarely watch house or ci repeats though..

I musn't have seen it, didn't know it was a repeat.

TGYH - haven't seen it and have no inclination.

Prison Break has been repeats etc too so when it comes back online it will probably get better ratings too.

The atrocious production quality of Bert's Family Feud is certainly amusing though. :-p

I used to watch Deal or No Deal all the time, but Andrew's become so damn americanised it sickens me. He actually called thongs "Flip flops" and he's started pronouncing words like "can't" the american way. I'm suspecting that he's been told to act american.

And it seems like every contestant today wants enough money for "a trip to america". Give me a break. What a waste of Aussie money. But then, I find these episodes more enjoyable to watch, since I'm hoping they bomb out and they usually do.

Yeah love watching the greedy ones bomb as well,they want more and more then BOOM! they lose the one greenie they had left. Love seeing the annoying ones either lose it or make a deal only to see the offer rise & rise...it's equally satisfying to see the ones you like do well.

Oh, I thought ratings start tonight! Thanks for telling me (both norman and rockchick (thumbsup))

So nice to see Supernatural around 1 mil viewers. A rise from last week, and hopefully it will keep going up, but I'm a little worried about that since Desperate Housewives returns next week.

I wonder if Cold Case can last with Desperate Housewives on at the same time.

Biggest Loser was great last night. I hope the final next thursday gets over 2 million viewers!  

Btw...fajo...the ratings are from enews! It's on the main page of Ebroadcast! How can you miss it, lol. Unless you are talking about something else..?

DH isn't a ratings giant? Around 2 mil viewers each week isn't a ratings giant?

To be honest, i think Cold Case has zero chance against DH. It'll probably get 1 mil viewers while DH is back up there at 2 mil viewers or 1.9 mil.

Huge win for Seven. I think it's over for Nine this year. Seven just continues to dominate and Nine has nothing to withstand it, while Ten remains to do ok.

Stronger figures for Bert boost Nine's early evenings
A swallow in autumn? Perhaps, a straw in a blizzard of numbers? Maybe. But whatever it is there could a changing in momentum in the 6 pm to 7 pm news battle between Nine and Seven.

Monday night Nine News had a good night in east coast markets, winning Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane while ACA won Sydney and Melbourne. Seven won the rest.

Seven won the network battle, depending on its supremacy in Perth, and to a lesser extent in Adelaide.

Last night, Seven again won the network at 6 pm and 6.30 pm in a mixed night's results, but there were again signs of stronger numbers for Nine News, but not so strong for A Current Affair at 6.30 pm.

However, ACA's numbers were better than the have been for some weeks with a national figure of 1.323 million viewers, compared to Today Tonight's 1.549 million.

Seven News had a national audience of 1.554 million, Nine News 1.474 million.

Monday night (a holiday which means higher viewing in the early evening with fewer people at work) Seven News got a national audience of 1.650 million, Nine News, 1.520 million, one of its highest audiences for a while (outside Sunday nights and the Games).

Monday Today Tonight was watched by 1.625 million, ACA by 1.551 million.

This strength was again evident for Nine News in Sydney and Melbourne on Tuesday.

In Sydney Nine won with 397,000 people to 385,000 for Seven. In Melbourne Nine won with 498,000 viewers to 430,000 for Seven. Nine also won Brisbane (which has been its strongest market).

ACA though showed the now usual weakness last night, losing viewers from the news to average 361,000 in Sydney, while there was a turn on from Seven news to TT which averaged 435,000.

In Melbourne ACA won well, 464,000 to 422,000 for TT.

And why this rebound: Well for the second night in a row Bert Newton's Family Feud had an audience over 600,000: 664,000 (679,000 on Monday).

On Good Friday Bert's audience averaged 597,000 and Nine News beat Seven nationally and in Sydney but seeing it was a public holiday it shouldn't be taken too literally given that there were more people at home to tune-in, as they did.

Likewise Monday and possibly Tuesday which is a holiday for schoolchildren in some states and some families will have taken long breaks with parents using holiday leave.

That's why network number crunchers and programmers will be watching the rest of this week and next week when ratings return to see if the new viewers to Bert are firstly sticking, and how long they stay for.

Nine News got a bit of a spurt in early February which then died out as it fell back: this new spurt could be an autumnal fling by viewers with Bert, but if it persists then Nine could be back in the game.


Great news for nine  ;D

Ah,  I read that before...Um, we'll see what happens. I still think Bert's show will be gone by mid-year.

It's looking that way I agree but if it's ratings improve who knows.

Can only hope that it doesn't.

Wow, TGYH did really well. It was a pretty funny one, although the final sketch wasn't too good.

Finally Looking forward to seeing all new House next week. Please, for the love of God, let us have a run of non-repeats.

The only good thing about House repeats is I can watch Without A Trace,but wouldn't you know it last nights was a repeat I'd seen >:( They just couldn't play an episode I hadn't seen could they.

I'm still stunned on how good TGYH went. It's a good show, but look at those numbers! Friggin hell!

Hope House and NCIS pick up next week for another Wednesday win by Ten. :D

WTF?! How the hell did TGYH rate so well? I watched around 4/5 of it last night and gave it a go, and although it is an intriguing concept indeed, irregardless of the shodiness of some of their performances throughout, he just kept on praising them. I wanted to smash his face in. I turned it off during the final sketch as it was no longer amusing.

Not for long, Wednesdays will be back in Ten's hands next week when there is a new episode instead of a repeat of House and NCIS.

Yeah a new episode of House should comfortably beat Prison Break next week,it's regularly the number one show on Wednesday nights.
Posted by: elie06, April 21, 2006, 2:19pm; Reply: 536
It's not, and only has been 1-2 times. The regular number 1 was prison break but only lately it started going down.

I think Wednesday night was an idication that people are interested in it once again. However, House has a nice lead up from TGYH next week, but I still think PB might pull through, well I hope it does anyways.

You didn't even like Frank Woodley's Peter Garrett impression?
I'm glad its doing well. It would be great if there was a return to this sort of comedy and light entertainment. There seems to be little on offer apart from American drama, lifestyle shows and reality shows-either of the contest variety, or the follow-someone-around-with-a-camera variety.

There's no such word as 'irregardless'. Its 'regardless' or 'irrespective'.
Watch it, or I'll be forced to call the Literacy Police.

I'd say even so far, and if not even, it's in PB's favour. Having said that, I think PB will reclaim it's spot again next week, over House.

OK. If I post this, I think I have succeeded in getting all of the Big Brother threads together so people can stop creating new threads about it!

The housemates are certainly the best looking in years in my opinion. Even the boob jobs! at 19 though? That's a bit ridiculous, but maybe not for her. She works in a surf shop at Cronulla I think she said so that's in the Shire! I will be able to go and check it out when she is evicted and report back!!

Everyone watches the first couple of episodes to see the inmates, then ratings drop off, with a bit more interest at eviction time and then peaks at the last few episodes again. Last night there was absolutely nothing else to watch anyway.

I'd take a last look though. By next week, Seven will be back with huge ratings once again.

After Big Brother dies down a little, people will start coming back to seven. I'm really excited to see Temptation's ratings drop, and I know it will. I'm hoping this will happen in the next 2 weeks.

This could just be wishful thinking though, but I doubt it.

The ratings for Family Feud seem to be mildly improving ,.74 million aint too bad.
And poor Rove seems to be slipping further.

Big Brother's still doing OK though.

Yeah people say how bad Rove is but it can be pretty funny most of the time. Its light entertainment that anyone can watch each week. Perhaps if it had a better lead-in it would deliver better figures? A few weeks ago when it had a Simpsons repeat as its lead-in which rated better than the OC it actually rated higher.

I caught a little of his interview with Lisa McCune and Georgie Parker.

He is still great tv ,but the 'What The..'jokes seem to be not as funny as they once were.

1.09 million to be exact and it was .91 the day before.

Not really a news fan but ten would be my favorite ,it goes for an hour and has a more relaxed feel. And 5-6pm seems like a better time. Plus the presenters here in brisbane(bill mcdonald ,marie louise-thiele ,brad mcewan) are much more down to earth and likeable.

Nothing like an "I told you so" comment!

How improbable is Prison break though. Seems to me the inmates can do whatever they want and go wherever they want anytime.

Gotta love Aircrash Investigations. It's amazing how they recreate the actual events then work out exactly what happened.

House beating Prison Break was a given almost.

Temptation just keeps on rising ,1.33 million  :o

Aircrash Investigations is interesting sometimes ,I think they may have done one awhile back about this pilot who got sucked out the windshield AND survived. Amazing.

possibly because all those fans of the biggest loser now watch temptation...cos they hate big brother and dont wanna watch home and away..

Ok, well I am happy Thank God You're Here rated so well because I think it's one of the funniest shows on TV at the moment, but I don't think House deserves the ratings it's getting. Nice to see Ten win for a change though. (Maybe they can win the week for once?) :P

Ten will win tonight I think with TBL finale, and Law and Order, and Lost/Las Vegas will probably drop a lot, this week and next week. We'll see what happens.

Can't believe House rated better than Prison Break (you pissed me off) AND TEMPATION!!!! OMG WHAT IS GOING ON :P lol, how in the world did this low quality game shown beat both Home and Away and Big Brother!!

I'm glad TGYH did so well too. It was a bit patchy last night, but I think it shows people want some Australian comedy and variety. Hopefully the other networks will take note.

Can anyone tell me how Big Brother's ratings compare to this time last series? Can we start carving the headstone yet?

Posted by: Billy Anacronysm, April 27, 2006, 7:25pm; Reply: 591
Yes, it seems unlikely they'll drop it as long as its still popular.
There's been speculation about dropping Idol, but I gather that was getting less popular.

It seems to me though its getting a bit desperate to keep it fresh with all the 'secrets' and other gimmicks. In the past there was more diversity in terms of age, ethnicity and body type. This year everyone's young and fit and mostly anglo-european. They seem to be aiming a bit lower.


PS: I thought all reality shows were about nothing.
Posted by: Rossatron, April 27, 2006, 10:12pm; Reply: 592
Yeah they're trying too hard ,I think BB is on its last legs. especially considering its fast fading ratings where it is now regularly beaten by Temptation and just barely outrates H&A.
Posted by: Billy Anacronysm, April 27, 2006, 11:15pm; Reply: 593
So is BB rating higher or lower than last year? Can anyone clear this up?
Posted by: sillygostly, April 27, 2006, 11:20pm; Reply: 594
Either way, I have an unsettling feeling that BB is going to be around for years to come. :-p
Posted by: elie06, April 28, 2006, 9:17am; Reply: 595
BB is definitely rating higher than last year. I think we can expect, by next week, both Home and Away and Big Brother to start beating Temptation by a lot again, and Temptation can return to lower than 1 mil viewers, exactly what it deserves.

What Channel Ten has to say this morning (Thanks to eNews):

2.31m Australians tuned in last night to see Adro take the title of The Biggest Loser and win the $200,000 prize.

The Biggest Loser Finale overwhelmingly won its timeslot in all major demographics and has catapulted into first position in 2006?s top shows with under 40s.

The audience peaked at 3.19m at 9.42pm.

In the 8.30pm-9.30pm timeslot The Biggest Loser Finale had an audience of 2.34m against Lost?s 1.14m.

David Mott, TEN?s general manager ? network programming, said: ?What a week it?s been for TEN! ?The Biggest Loser has been a ratings winner right from the word go. It?s a fantastic example of how well an international format can be tailored for the local market.? Throughout the series The Biggest Loser has gone from strength to strength, consistently winning its timeslot among 16-54s.

The Biggest Loser at 7pm Tuesday-Friday averaged a winning 49.0% national commercial share of 16-39s, 41.8% of 25-54s and 1.16m total viewers1.

Every Monday night elimination show won its timeslot in all major demos, averaging 51.7% in 16-39, 44.2% in 25-54 and 37.1% in total people. The average audience was 1.33m viewers.

In the crucial Monday-Friday 7pm timeslot, TEN has increased its commercial share year on year by 51.5% in 16-39 and a huge 78.7% in 25-54.

Awesome figures for Ten! They are winning the week at the moment, who knows, maybe they can beat Seven. Seven is coming second while Nine is a distant third.

Nice to see Ten's shows rating so well. I'm really excited to see who wins this week, and also, I'm dying to see how Supernatural will rate next week with a lead in from Big Brother Nominations. I think Desperate Housewives will be back at 1.7 mil and over, but I think Cold Case is going to suffer.

I really hope Supernatural gets awesome ratings though, it deserves it.

Where are they now is doing really well. Ghost Whisperer was nothing special last night though.


I like your avatar, and your sig has one of my favourite childhood shows :P

Anyways, as for the ratings on Sunday, a suprising win for Nine, can't believe Big Brother and the Biggest Loser didn't come first and second. I think we all know Nine will lose tonight though, and tomorrow, and the day after, and thursday, oh, and friday....see the pattern?

Not really surprising ,nine pretty much always wins Sunday night with the odd exception.
And Monday is looking good with the Temptation Super Challenge/20/1/Cold Case ratings monster.

Wow, I'm really suprised at the results for Monday. I'm not too suprised about Desperate Housewives, I expect people will begin tuning in again over the next few weeks (damn that easter break :P) but I'm really shocked to see the turn off from BB Live Nominations to Supernatural!

I expected over 1 mil viewers for Supernatural last night. I hope Ten doesn't cancel the show or something stupid like that.

Im not too surprised after all Ive been saying for awhile that Desperate Housewives is slowly fading.
The following article from enews addresses this.
Looks like not only Lost but Desperate Housewives is on the wane.




Viewers are showing early signs of switching off the housewives.
Was that the sound of a Seven’s ratings war changing tack, or was that 'click click' the sound of programmers and management in the Seven Network shaking their heads and wondering why their ratings locomotive, Desperate Housewives, has lost its legs.

Last night’s ratings confirmed that Desperate Housewives has gone off the boil: probably because of that Easter Break and the fact that it its now a soap opera and nothing else.

Around Seven’s HQ in Ultimo today there’ll be much wondering if this change in attitude by viewers to the Housewives of Wisteria Lane, and the idiots still Lost on that island, has wounded the network’s ratings attack for the year.

Seven will argue no change is needed, it has never wanted to win the ratings battle in All People: all it wants is the most number of programs in the top 20 most watched shows, which it still has.

But bragging rights at beating Nine are bragging rights worth treasuring after so many beatings down the years.

You have to wonder whether there’s the late Autumn-Winter rebound by Nine on the back of football and a slowing in Seven’s momentum, just like there was in 2005.

This year has been different though. Seven is much stronger than last year and Nine is weaker. Last night could be the usual Monday factor with holidays over and more people watching: but Desperate Housewives had made Mondays Seven territory.

But things have now changed, and Nine are back.

For the second week in a row the program that helped boost Seven's ratings comeback in 2005 and earlier this year has fallen short of pre-Easter audience numbers and is now just a good hit.

Desperate Housewives (1.617 million) ran third last night, beaten in the 8.30-8.40 timeslot by Cold Case (1.723 million people on average). Seven's Today Tonight was second with 1.622 million.

Looking at it last night it is now confused and a bit like Lost. Viewers could be excused for wandering away and returning when they want to not because the strength of the story demands they return each Monday night.,

Lost, Seven's other ratings giant from 2005 on Thursday nights has already eased back to the pack and is averaging around 1.3 to 1.4 million viewers, compared to more than two million a year ago and 1.8 million at the start of this ratings year. It too is confused and not very approachable for newish viewers.

Desperate Housewives managed a small lift on last Monday night (a whole 27,000) but Cold Case came back strongly to bury it.

As a result Nine won Monday night against DH by the smallest margin possible, 0.1: 28.6% to 28.5%. Seven and Nine both lifted share on Monday night and Seven won the 25 to 54 age group and Ten of course won the 16 to 39 group with Big Brother.

But it’s the gradual audience loss of Lost and now Desperate Housewives that has raised eyebrows around the TV industry. At the same time Seven's Commander In Chief is settling down around a million viewers at 9.40 pm. That's more than OK, but Seven probably would have hoped for a 100,000 or so more on average.

With Desperate Housewives now a 1.6 million hit instead of a 2.1 million mega hit, Commander in Chief's audience will be lower.

But the content of Commander in Chief is now very soapy: a sort of Dallas/Ewings meets the Prez and The White House.

It may reflect the current nature of White House relations, but it has no resemblance to how the series started. It is getting close to the time when ABC 'rested' Commander to try and put it back on track. It has returned Thursday nights in the US without much oomph.

After finishing the very unaccustomed third slot last week for the first time in decades, Nine is on track to perhaps win the week or go close after winning Sunday and Monday nights.

While Nine will strut and chortle about the win and look forward to a better performance, it's problems are slowly multiplying. Advertisers are still wondering what CEO Eddie McGuire will produce as his new strategy.

Ratings are starting to recover in the US for Desperate Housewives. Back over 21m viewers and it beat Grey's Anatomy for the first time in a month or so.

Oh boo hoo. It's still rating well, isn't it?

Surprised with Cold Case's ratings though. It seems like too bland a show for my liking.
Posted by: Rossatron, May 2, 2006, 5:33pm; Reply: 628
When you think about it Cold Case ,as with a lot of nine shows,appeals to a broad demographic so it's not surprising really to see it rate so well. I think it's perhaps a little depressing but all in all a stylish detective show.

... Must've been a slow ratings day for that to get number 5.
Posted by: elie06, May 3, 2006, 9:16am; Reply: 630
Desperate Housewives isn't slowly fading...it's been building back up ever since the easter break. Next week or the week after it will be back to over 1.7 mil.

I definitely think Cold Case will go down, but I'm starting to give up hope that Supernatural will pick up. It's an awesome show, why aren't more people watching it..?
Posted by: Rossatron, May 3, 2006, 11:00am; Reply: 631
Who knows ratings are a funny thing.

Im hoping Cold Case can keep it up it's a great show and deserves to be number one IMHO.

But if it isn't no matter as long as it does reasonably well Im  :)

Ok, so DWTS gains another 100k viewers and Desperate Housewives loses 100k from its usual:P

Interesting that DWTS is getting such high viewers though, but it was the semi final, and I assume next week will be even higher.

Terrible night for Nine, poor CSI, it's getting clobbered. Anyone know what will be taking over for DWTS? I'm hoping its 24.

I still do not understand why a program like Dancing With The Stars still needs one & half hours when they only have 3 contestants left. And I cannot understand why it is so popular - it is the most poorly produced show on Australian TV and I would rather watch paint dry.

It runs so long because it can. It's televisions hottest property at the moment and Seven would mad not to take full advantage of what the show can deliver.

Sadly there are much more poorly produced shows on.
An hour and a half is a bit of a bloody stretch though.

His ratings are actually a little up on last year. I recall he got as low as 0.55 at one stage. Still, a show in that timeslot should be getting over a million viewers.

Anyways, after TGYH is working so well, I am starting to think The Wedge will do really well too, when it actually comes on.

Nice results for Seven as well, with Today Tonight and Prison Break recieving good amounts of viewers.

Oh please, get off your high horse. It's a brilliant show that is all about FUN and VARIETY. If you don't like it, go and watch Denton, who coincidentaly is at 0.88m viewers this week.

I believe his peak was 1million or thereabouts

It's not a competition. Different people like different things. If a show is rating low, that doesn't mean people who like it are wrong.

I'm shocked that House is losing viewers. It used to get more than it's getting now, didn't it? With such a strong lead-in as TGYH, it really is confusing. Maybe the two programs are just too different.

You have to consider the timeslot competitors. In the 8:30 hour approximately 4.2million people are watching the 3 major channels alone, compared to about 4million for the 7:30 timeslot. It is only a difference of about 200K but its also possible that many of the TGYH viewers are fans of PB.
House is also a self-contained show most of the time and hasn't really differed all that much from the first season. 1.5million for a medical drama/comedy is therefore pretty good.

variety?? ..the only thing rove does is copy other talkshow concepts eg. letterman with the whole band thing.. if it was full of "variety" viewers wouldnt be tuning out by the thousands on some weeks...

and as a matter of fact.. i dont watch it cause i usually find it somwhat offensive at times and unoriginal...also, someone needs to tell him to get better material before the show gets axed..using the same jokes over and over are getting a bit old now... ::)

Even Letterman got the template from Carson and so even he isn't totally original.

And if Rove was getting numbers like .55 million in previous years I really can't see him getting cancelled when he gets around .90 million now  ;D
I think he had gone as far as he could and he's rebuilding with a different look. The only thing that turns me off of Rove is when he has the knuckle dragging BB rejects on.

Well this has certainly been an interesting week of ratings. I think Nine is going to win the week  >:(

Oh well, hopefully Seven's shows will pick up next week, and I'd like to see some of Ten's shows (namely supernatural) to do better as well.

Unfortunately it seems Supernatural isn't gonna make it,sad as it seems like a quality show. It's been said before but it might do well if paired with Medium,maybe coming after it to take advantage of Mediums ratings. Maybe Medium followed by Supernatural on thursdays.
Wonder how it's doing in the US?

Quoted Text
Big Brother Ten 1.23

Muahahahhaha Muahahahahahah MAUAUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHH!
VIVA BIG BROTHER!
BIG BROTHER LIVES ON!
ANOTHER SEASON NEXT YEAR!

It might not be obvious, but I've been bashed on ebroadcast for liking it one too many times...
And every year on the old forum we always heard more outcry than not that it's on its last leg, barely rating... not coming back next year.  When will you people learn to quit taking your foot out of your mouth?  It belongs there, please leave it in.



I relly hope Ten sticks in there with Supernatural or at least brings it back again to prime time at a later date if they have to take it off.

It's ratings in the US are extremely low, but this is because it is shown on the soon to be extint, WB network.

I think Ten will still keep Supernatural. They've stuck with it this far, why not go even further? :p

Let's just hope on Monday it can hit the million mark since it's squashed between two Big Brother shows.

TEN secured four Logie Awards last night, including commercial FTA television's only industry-voted "most outstanding" Logies: for "most outstanding sports coverage" ( Bathurst 1 000 - the third consecutive year TEN has won this category); and "most outstanding miniseries/telemovie" (for The Incredible Journey of Mary Bryant - TEN also won this category last year with Jessica ).

Rove McManus picked up his fourth Silver Logie for most popular TV presenter, while Australian Idol was voted most popular reality program for the second year in a row.

Meanwhile, TEN had the top three shows in 16-39 last week, with Big Brother - Surprise Eviction at #1.

TEN won week 18 in 16-39 with a 41.3% share, 11.2 share points ahead of its nearest competitor.

NB: Program performance and ranking information from Sunday night subject to change as not
based on final program logs.

All data: OzTAM

1. TEN again winning best sports coverage with bathurst  >:(

2. Rove winning the silver logie shows his popularity doesn't seem to be diminishing and probably would have won the gold had John Wood not got the pity vote.

Logies was pretty bad, did anyone actually enjoy it? I only started watching after Big Brother but from what I saw it was terrible. I don't think viewers will be impressed with Nine, hopefully there is a turn off from Nine and everyone comes to Seven this week! :P

Did Nine win the week last week?

Nine Melbourne - Viewers Desperate For Nine On Monday
  Author: Nine Melbourne | May 9, 2006, 12:00


NEWS AND CURRENT AFFAIRS STILL THE ONE
DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES CONTINUES TO FALTER

The Nine Network continued to dominate this week with a Monday night victory, winning in Melbourne with an All People share of 30.8 per cent. Seven lagged in second on 27.5 per cent, while Ten was in third on 20.6 per cent. ABC had 16.6 and SBS 4.5.

Nationally Nine was triumphant with 29.9 per cent, 3.1 per cent ahead of nearest rivals Seven on 26.8 per cent with Ten again in third on 21.6 per cent.

The Nine Network was also the clear winner in the key 25 - 54 demographic nationally with 28.4 per cent and locally with 29.9 per cent.

Overall Nine Melbourne had half of the Top Ten programs, including the top four of the night. A Current Affair was the most watched program overall with a mammoth audience of 559,000 - 126,000 more viewers than Today Tonight (8th, 433,000). Nationally A Current Affair (4th, 1,610,000) bettered Today Tonight (7th, 1,510,000).

National Nine News (3rd, 514,000) was the preferred news bulletin in Melbourne last night, beating Seven News in 6th place with 474,000 viewers.

Crime drama Cold Case (nationally - 1st, 1,674,000; locally - 2nd, 516,000) continued to grow in popularity, eclipsing Wisteria Lane's Desperate Housewives (nationally - 3rd, 1,611,000; locally - 5th, 492,000), which fell well below this year's national and local averages of 1,774,000 and 551,000 viewers respectively. Ten's Supernatural (22nd, 266,000) was fourth in Melbourne, beaten by Four Corners (20th, 281,000) and Media Watch (17th, 307,000).

A powerful combination of mullets and mini skirts proved unbeatable for the 20 To 1 - Fads & Fashions (nationally - 5th, 1,596,000; locally - 4th, 509,000) retrospective, which annihilated The Great Outdoors (nationally - 12th, 1,081,000; locally - 11th, 360,000) and Big Brother Live Nomination (nationally - 8th, 1,330,000; locally - 10th, 386,000).

Quiz show Temptation (nationally - 9th, 1,300,000; locally - 7th, 436,000) jackpotted against Home & Away (nationally - 10th, 1,299,000; locally - 9th, 408,000) and Big Brother (nationally - 11th, 1,236,000; locally - 13th, 336,000).

http://www.ebroadcast.com.au/enews/Viewers_Desperate_For_Nine_On_Monday_090506.html

When you start getting beaten by Four Corners & Media Watch it's time to start worrying.

Supernatural should be moved to a less competitive night or it won't last long.

Maybe bring back Numb3rs, it wasn't doing that badly after all.

Missing Persons Unit and Hello-Goodbye have made a surprisingly promising start. Didn't expect them to do that well..
H-G looks interesting as for some reason I like all these airport type shows.
MPU is far too depressing.

Nine Melbourne - Daily Ratings Thursday May 11
  Author: Nine Melbourne | May 12, 2006, 11:40


FOOTY SHOW SEEN BY 1.969 MILLION VIEWERS
SEVEN'S VIEWERS LOST TO MPU AND HELLO/GOODBYE

The Nine Network dominated the ratings last night, winning all demographics in Melbourne and triumphing nationally.

Nine Melbourne blitzed the opposition with a 41.6 per cent share in the All People demographic - a massive 16.9 per cent ahead of Seven on 24.7 per cent, with Ten in third on 19.6 per cent. ABC had 9.3 and SBS 4.8.

The Footy Show's exclusive chat with rescued miners Todd Russell and Brant Webb peaked nationally at 1,969,000 viewers and locally at 874,000 viewers.

The program shot into first place both nationally (1,570,000) and locally (705,000), prevailing over Seven's The Amazing Race (nationally - 20th, 878,000; locally - 19th, 261,000), American Dad (nationally - 26th, 507,000; locally - 27th, 178,000) and Family Guy (nationally - 27th, 498,000; locally - 25th, 188,000). It also beat Ten's Law & Order (nationally - 16th, 946,000; locally - 18th, 276,000), Ten Late News With Sports Tonight (nationally - 29th, 490,000; locally - 30th, 140,000) and Big Brother - Up Late (nationally - 69th, 192,000; locally - 68th - 60,000).

Nine Melbourne had seven of the Top 10 programs, including the first consecutive six.

The debut of Missing Persons Unit in its new Thursday 8.30pm timeslot attracted more viewers nationally (4th, 1,488,000) and locally (3rd, 504,000) than Lost (nationally - 6th, 1,410,000; locally - 9th, 413,000). In Melbourne, the debut of Hello/Goodbye (2nd, 534,000) also smashed Lost, which was below its average both nationally (1,511,000) and locally (448,000).

A special Da Vinci Code-themed Getaway (nationally - 5th, 1,413,000; locally - 4th, 481,000) bankrupted Las Vegas (nationally - 12th, 1,195,000; locally - 12th, 333,000) and Smallville (nationally - 16th, 946,000; locally - 15th, 313,000).

In Melbourne, Temptation (8th, 426,000) continued its winning streak against nightly instalments of Home and Away (11th, 361,000) and Big Brother (13th, 332,000).

National Nine News (6th, 474,000) was preferred over Seven News (10th, 410,000), while the Tracy Grimshaw-hosted A Current Affair (5th, 478,000) outshone Today Tonight (7th, 437,000).

In the advertiser-friendly 25-54 demographic, Nine Melbourne stole victory with a 42.6 per cent share, topping Seven on 26.6 per cent and Ten on 21.1 per cent. Locally Nine took out the 16-39 demographic with 38.2 per cent, way ahead of Seven on 28.5 per cent and Ten on 25.1 per cent.

I don't understand. "Law & Order" is advertised and it didn't rate #2 on the night of "The Biggest Loser" finale. It had 1.049 million viewers, behind many other shows of the night.

Actually, on that night, Law & Order's ratings were incredibly high (around 1.6 million). And I've noticed that Ten never puts the effort into advertising the show except during the final ad break of Medium. Well, at least I haven't seen L&O being advertised much.

Actually no it rated 1.049 million viewers. Your figure of 1.6 million viewers includes the over-run of "The Biggest Loser" after 9:30 p.m.. They were just preliminary ratings. The real ratings that were produced later, reports the lower ratings of 1.049.

It's a suprise to see Big Brother being beaten by something like Where are they now. Not a suprise to see Nine win last week, since it had the logies. I think Seven will win this week, depending on the return of Border Security, as that timeslot is crucial.

Where Are They Now is a great show and along with Infamous Murders sevens best new recent addition. It has a broad appeal so it's not surprising that it's doing well.

Great to see DH dominating again. Last night's episode was the best of the season, and I'm very glad to see Cold Case fading away. Looks like Monday night's are Seven's again.

I wonder how Border Security will do tonight, it will be interesting to see how it does against the BB intruder special.

Nine Network - Nine Dominates East Coast
  Author: Nine Network | May 16, 2006, 12:28


NINE was first in each of Australia’s major markets last night, dominating television on the East Coast as its Monday night selection was embraced by viewers.

The strength of audience numbers for Nine’s top drama Cold Case, its news and current affairs offerings and hits like 20 To 1 and Temptation saw the network dominate in Melbourne with an All People share of 28.5 per cent, in Sydney with 27.9 per cent and in Brisbane with 28.9 per cent.

In a hotly contested night of television, Nine attracted the biggest audience on the East Coast, first with an All People market share of 28.4 per cent.

Nationally, Nine finished the night with a strong 27.4 per cent share.

Cold Case was number three nationally with an average audience of 1.637 million - its second-best airing this year - while the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced drama was number two in Melbourne with 501,000.

Nine’s in-house developed countdown sensation 20 To 1 was again in the Top 10, winning its slot with an audience of 1.458 million, while 7pm quiz Temptation had its best Monday night all year attracting 1.312 million viewers nationally and winning in Melbourne with 433,000 viewers to Home and Away's 407,000.

Nine leads Week 12 of official ratings with a share of 28.9 per cent, 2.5 points clear of Seven.

Hello guys,

I am new to this board, but I've been reading enews for weeks. I just have a question, has anyone noticed that Nine Network only releases Rating results when Nine wins? And sometimes only releases Melbourne results.

(I apologise if this has been discussed before)

Beaconsfield Miners
  Author: Nine Network | May 17, 2006, 09:27


Nine Network chief executive Eddie McGuire tonight announced that the Nine Network had secured the Australian television exclusive interviews with Beaconsfield Mine survivors Todd Russell and Brant Webb.

Nine will on Sunday night at 8.30pm broadcast a special two-hour presentation featuring the rescued miners to be hosted by Tracy Grimshaw.

The Great Escape will see Russell and Webb talk for the first time of their remarkable two-week underground ordeal.

Todd Russell and Brant Webb - a television exclusive. Sunday 8.30pm on Nine.

I'm a bit peeved at nine taking off CSI but on the flip side this should rate like crazy.

Hi Antony, welcome to the board.. I guess a press release is just that - a press release. You only send them out when you've got something to boast about I suppose!

Border Security wins – peaking at 1.86 million. Border +17% on Big Brother stunt and nearly doubles Survivor. Medical Emergency wins – peaking at 1.74 million. Medical defeats Big Brother and is up 71% on Survivor.

All Saints wins – peaking at 1.57 million and dominating its timeslot in total viewers, 18-49s and 25-54s. All Saints is up 12% on CSI and up 47% on The OC.

Deal or No Deal +52% on Bert. Sunrise crushes Today (Early Sunrise more than doubles Early Today and Sunrise more than doubles Today).

Nine Melbourne - Ratings Results for Tuesday May 16
  Author: Nine Melbourne | May 17, 2006, 13:27


THE Nine Network continues to lead official ratings this week with an All People share of 28.2 per cent.

Nine also leads in each market along the East Coast. Nine had a 28.5 per cent share in Melbourne, 28.9 in Sydney and 29.9 in Brisbane.

In Melbourne, CSI: NY (391,000) scored its best result for the year. Nine's crime drama was strong all around the country with 1.271 million nationally. Seven's Medical Incredible needed life support with just 266,000 viewers in Melbourne and 758,000 nationally. Rove Live also faltered with 309,000 in Melbourne and 1.111 million nationally.

Temptation was also strong around the country with 1.301 million viewers. In Melbourne it averaged 409,000 to beat Ten's Big Brother (386,000). Temptation also beat Big Brother (1.285 million) nationally.

Nine's top program in Melbourne was National Nine News (454,000). A Current Affair was also strong on 426,000.

Nine has only won Sunday so far but is still ahead in the weekly ratings. Which is a little bit surprising but  8)

Rove did surprisingly well with 1.11 million  :o

Wow. Impressive figures on Rove. Weren't his ratings around the 600k mark last week? Also great to see that The O.C.'s ratings last night were the highest since the season premiere.

I've actually come to realize that Rove isn't as annoying as long as you miss the first 10 minutes of the show. :-p

Yep, Rove's best figure for quite a while. Ten's Intruder stunt was a roaring success the entire night.

Nine Network - Ratings Results for Wednesday May 17
  Author: Nine Network | May 18, 2006, 13:44


CHANNEL Nine is winning the ratings battle this week, as the Network sits on a total of seven weeks won so far this year, out in front of rival Seven on five weeks.

So far this week Nine is first with a national All People market share of 27.7 per cent. Nine is winning in each of the East Coast markets too, with a 27.8 per cent share in Melbourne, 28.8 in Sydney, and 29.2 per cent in Brisbane – each of the stations owned by Nine’s parent Publishing and Broadcasting.

In the countdown towards Nine’s Australian television exclusive on Sunday night at 8.30pm – The Great Escape – featuring the amazing tale of mine survivors Todd Russell and Brant Webb, tonight is shaping up as another strong night for the network.

The AFL Footy Show - fresh from its own Beaconsfield exclusive last week - will tonight at 9.30pm unveil plans for another first, this time centred around a different shaped ball.

Missing Persons Unit and Hello Goodbye also return to our screens from 8.30pm and 9.00pm respectively.

Last night – an evening’s viewing when Seven was relegated to third nationally – Australia’s Number One drama McLeod’s Daughters was a top five performer with an audience of 1.337 million, easily beating Seven's Beyond Tomorrow watched by 932,000.

Seven’s Prison Break managed a national audience of just 1.175 million in what was the Fox studio-produced show’s worst performance ever in Australia.

Prison Break - like Seven’s other US dramas – is in decline. Last night’s outing was almost 20 per cent off its average this year and almost one third off its season debut.

I thought Seven was winning the year so far, it's a suprise to hear Nine is.

Oh actually they did have the commonwealth games, I guess that helped. I wonder who will the entire year though. I think it might be Seven, and hope it will be since they do have the best shows.

NINE WINS NATIONALLY AND IN MELBOURNE
NATIONAL NINE NEWS STILL THE ONE

As I mentioned earlier, Nine only mentions their rating when they win. Well, their $2 million was well spent.

Well done Seven! Seven still report the rating even they did not win!

It isn't huge that I wanted to start a thread.  I'll leave it to someone else and I think there isn't one yet.
Star Trek: Enterprise was on at midnight tonight and I didn't know nor found it searching the forums, so just to stick a heads up somewhere that many people read.

And staying on topic:
It will interesting to see if last week's Big Brother promotion of Rove has made a differance for him this week.  I haven't seen last weeks numbers to know if it made much of an impact to begin with though.

Last night Nine won the key 25-54 demographic in Melbourne with a 33.9 per cent share. The Network was also first around the country in 25-54 with a 31.9 per cent share .

It's fairly obvious now that Big Brother is recieving lower ratings that what The Biggest Loser was recieving when it was on.

The interesting thing though is that BB is up from last year in ratings. Maybe this twist on sunday will increase ratings over the 2 or so months it has left.

Also, Nine will still win this week, due to an impressive Sunday Night.  :'(

Much lower ratings.

TBL was a ratings giant and used to always beat Temptation so thank goodness for BB and it's lousy ratings ;D

BB is actually enjoying it's best daily show figures in years. Most seasons, even the very first in 2001, dipped to around 900,000 around about now. Last night, it averaged 1.2 million and hasn't dipped much below 1.1 million yet.

The Biggest Loser attracted approx. 100k-200k more viewers than Big Brother, mostly in the older age-bracket, taking them away from Temptation. So it's hard to really compare the performance of both shows against each other as BB skews younger..

Anyhow, here's what happened last night, thanks to eNews:


• Seven News wins Sydney and Melbourne. Seven News wins network – up 14% on Nine.

• Today Tonight wins Sydney. Today Tonight wins network – up 11% on A Current Affair.

• Sunrise demolishes Today. Early Sunrise more than doubles Early Today. Sunrise +79% on Today.

• Deal or No Deal +43% on Bert.

• Nine in third place in primetime in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Now, I know why Seven aired The Three Princes in the usual Prison Break time in Sydney and Brisbane last night, and a special episode of Prison Break on other cities (read: story recap).

Nice way to prevent the waste of a new episode.

What the heck is going on :P


What planet are u on Rock Chick? Is Melbourne not in Australia? Dont you have a Rugby League team sharing the compertition lead? If you dont know what State of Origin is then wait a few weeks and it will be on in Melbourne. Try looking out the window occasionally.

1.9m viewers watched it and nobody dared put a good show up against it. That's State of Origin!

Oops thought it was Rockchick not Elieo6 who wrote the comment. Sorry about that. I was surprised when I thought that comment was from the Rocking Chick. I rushed into it a bit.

If it was tongue in cheek well fair enough but I didnt read it that way so sorry, I am from Sydney and naturally State of Origin is big but I know that there are ppl who dont give a rats about it but usually everyone has at least heard of it, but there are still some who live under rocks...

The State Of Origin was great except for one thing..the &%*$ blues won  :'(

Great ratings for nine though that was to be expected.

And yes most networks,especially those in brisbane/sydney know it's useless to program against SOO so that's why we get penguin specials on ten ;D

Nine Network - Blues Score For Nine
  Author: Nine Network | May 25, 2006, 14:30


A peak national audience of 2.255 million viewers last night watched the Nine Network’s exclusive coverage of game one of the Harvey Norman State of Origin Series.

The New South Wales Wizard Blues scored a dramatic 17-16 point win over the XXXX Queensland Maroons and gripped an average of 1.909 million viewers across the five capital cities.

In Sydney, the game attracted a peak audience of 1.103 million viewers at 8.30pm and was the night’s number one program in the Harbour City with an average of 944,000 viewers.

In Brisbane, Nine’s coverage drew a peak audience of 746,000 at 8.15pm with the game averaging 618,000 – a staggering 60 per cent of the audience.

Nationally, Nine’s State of Origin telecast was the night’s most watched program, screened live into Sydney and Brisbane and on delay in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth from 9.30pm. Last night’s result is the best for game one of the series since 2003.

The result drove Nine to a resounding victory for Wednesday night with a 36.5 per cent All People share nationally.

In Melbourne, Temptation was Nine’s top rating program for the night. It averaged a terrific 482,000 viewers to easily beat Seven’s Home and Away (374,000) and Ten’s Big Brother (337,000).

A Current Affair (476,000) also had a huge night in Melbourne with a big win over Seven’s Today Tonight (445,000).

Other Top 10 programs for Nine in Melbourne last night were National Nine News (424,000) and McLeod’s Daughters (391,000).

Nine leads the week-to-date (Sunday to Wednesday) in Melbourne with a 33.0 per cent all people share to Seven's 26.4 and Ten's 22.8.

Last night's medium was great. One of the best episodes of the season. Unfortunately we're not even half way through yet. Channel Ten will be able to stretch this out for another 4 months. Here's hoping it keeps rating solidly so we get to see them all.

It was pretty good though the 3D stuff was a little annoying as it distracted from the episode.

The cool thing about Medium is the family is so ordinary,just normal family life.Unlike some of the obnoxious kids you see in some shows.

And can't see it not rating well it's consistently around the million mark so ten won't drop it.

Perhaps they were like me and didn't have 3D glasses and didn't think it was worth the trouble to find out where to get them nor would appreciate having to buy a product in order to get them.

3D has always been a bad way of promoting something.  I can't think of anything 3D that's been a success.  I would have recorded it if I had the glasses.

Where did people get the 3D glasses?  How much was it and how many pairs did that buy?

Why didn't they turn up in my mail  :P

It faced stiff competition, including the Australia v Greece Soccer which rated 1.52 million viewers. Even "Lost" couldn't take the heat as it hit a new low with just 1.22 million viewers.

I didn't use 3d glasses, but still enjoyed it all the same. The 3d scenes didn't detract from the viewing, 'cause they were well filmed and planned to be bother good 3d shots, and also good normal scenes.

Medium is ok where it is and usually rates quite well. As tss said it had the soccer to contend with so 1.09 million aint that bad.

That would be in keeping with tens rule of showing repeats against something unbeatable such as state of origin. Perhaps they thought the soccer wouldn't do quite so well as it did..

All the nights ratings are taken into account not just the top couple.

And Desperate Housewives rated pretty much the same as Cold Case while Temptation easily beat Home & Away while Close To Home was a good winner over Commander In Chief.

It's not hard to see why nine would win by a couple of points.

And as you can see from this nine release What's Good For You also soundly beat The Great Outdoors so nine pretty much owned the night except for Housewives slight win over Cold Case.

Nationally Nine remained number one with 28.4 per cent and was also the most-watched station along the East Coast with 29.3 per cent. Nine Melbourne also blitzed the key 25-54 demographic with 29.4 per cent.



What's Good For You (4th, 448,000), hosted by Sigrid Thornton, was the clear winner in the 7.30pm timeslot, beating The Great Outdoors (10th, 363,000) and Big Brother Live Nomination (11th, 346,000).

National Nine News (3rd, 450,000) was the preferred choice over Seven News (5th, 446,000).

Quiz show Temptation (8th, 410,000) continued to dominate Home & Away (9th, 375,000) and Big Brother (12th, 344,000).

And Nine's new crime drama Close To Home (12th, 344,000) obliterated Big Brother - Adults Only (15th, 310,000) and Commander In Chief (18th, 283,000).

All the nights ratings are taken into account not just the top couple.

And Desperate Housewives rated pretty much the same as Cold Case while Temptation easily beat Home & Away while Close To Home was a good winner over Commander In Chief.

It's not hard to see why nine would win by a couple of points.


You've actually made me understand, which is something hard to do :P No I'm not think, but I just find it hard understanding the ratings shares a bit lol.

24 and Grey's Anatomy are coming back to Seven next month. I thought Grey's Anatomy would replace Dh, but DH isn't finished yet...what's going on:P

Ah, you mean following It Takes Two?

They might...I hope they do actually. That will secure them the win for the night.

Perhaps it will be replacing Prison Break (or maybe that's 24's job).

The smartest thing to do would be to put it on Sunday actually.

Seven's Border Security did astonishing figures last night (Tuesday). Ten will also be pleased with the debut of The Wedge. Here's the lowdown thanks to eNews:

Seven wins primetime.

Seven News wins – up 9% on Nine News. Today Tonight wins – up 26% on ACA.

Home and Away wins – defeating Temptation and yet another Big Brother “stunt”.

Border Security wins – peaking at 2.10 million and nearly matching the combined audiences of Nine and Ten. Medical Emergency wins - peaking at 1.83 million (up 79% on Survivor and up 20% on The Wedge). All Saints wins - peaking at 1.74 million.

In the top ten for 16-39s: Border Security, Medical Emergency and All Saints. In the top ten for 25-54s: Border Security (#1), Medical Emergency (#2), All Saints, Today Tonight and Home and Away.

Deal or No Deal +29% on Bert. Sunrise destroys Today (Early Sunrise more than doubles Early Today and Sunrise peaks at 551,000 viewers and more than doubles Today).

As I stated in another thread, Rove Live is turning into one of the best shows on telly at the moment. It has really gone from strength to strength quality wise - I got quite a few laughs out of it last night.

What in the world:P That's crazy.

Seven has 4 of the top 5 shows of the night. I can't believe Border Security rated so well, and I think we can expect to see the trend continue, since the numbers actually rose from the series return last week.

The Wedge will go down next week. I'm glad OC and Rove are picking up better numbers. Rove was really funny last night, I laughed a lot during the show which is something I usually only do for Desperate Housewives or The Simspons.

I thought it would get better ,it was just a matter of Rove getting used to his new format and life without Corinne.
I do think that phone thing is a little lame though.

And last night's Women of Desperate Housewives (9:30 to 11:30 PM) did not make into the list? I am a bit surprised and actually worried.

I don't think he's as good as he was in 2002-2004. But he seems to have picked up his game recently. He's a lot less smug and self-absorbed in the last couple of episodes in particular. It's like he's a bit more relaxed now. At the beginning of the season, and most of last year, he was very arrogant and rude to guests. But now he's more relaxed and actually has a proper talk-show discussion with his guests. If he keeps that up, he'll probably continue to pick up viewers.

Clearly House has taken it's dominating position over Prison Break. Oh well, lol, Seven will have to rethink the timeslot they give the show next year.

I think Nine will win this week, depending on tonight. I'm looking forward to seeing the new timeslots Seven will have for new shows/series returns like 24, Grey's Anatomy, and How I met your mother.

Does Celebrity Survivor premiere this month also?

I think nine will probably win almost every week pretty much from now on. Now that DWTS is over seven doesn't have any real ratings giants which would give it a weekly win easily.

Seven is plucky but I can't see it taking over nine now they're too far ahead.
Posted by: elie06, June 1, 2006, 2:24pm; Reply: 816
I guess we'll have to wait and see, but the way Border Security is going, it could very well be a good DWTS replacement.

I'd like to see Seven win since they are the only station committed to bringing good shows out in appropriate timeslots.

It takes two will most likely improve, and Celebrity Survivor, along with 24 and Grey's Anatomy will most likely give Seven the lead over Nine.

Anything can happen, except for the fact that Ten has no chance in winning:P

Isn't the ratings system flawed anyway? I read somewhere that it takes only one or two viewers to make the numbers jump by 30,000 to 50,000. So when I read that DWTS have more than 1.7 million viewers each week, the ratings are obviously widely inaccurate.

Border security is doing well I agree but hardly a replacement for DWTS ratings wise.
It takes two is doing well but I think it may fade and those other shows are not really ratings giants especially 24.
As you say anything can happen but I can't see seven catching nine at this stage but you never know your luck ;D

Yeah it's flawed,it must be as it's based on extrapolation of a few hundred/thousand select people. Ratings won't be accurate until every tv has some kind of monitor. And I agree any system that shows DWTS with that many viewers must be way off  ;D

Ten are not cutting it off early ... Working Dog are ... from an article in The Age yesterday.

Quoted Text
When its first two episodes pulled 1.7 million viewers, Channel Ten begged to extend the season from eight to 10 episodes.

Then more in the Article, and on Page Two:

Working Dog deliberately kept the first season of Thank God You're Here short because "it feels more special if you know it's finite". There will be a second season and then, most likely, the team will move on.

Seven News wins. Today Tonight wins – up 27% on A Current Affair.

Home and Away wins (defeating Big Brother and Temptation). Las Vegas peaks at 1.25 million and wins its timeslot in 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s. Lost peaks at 1.50 million and dominates its timeslot in every demographic. The Amazing Race peaks at 1.40 million and wipes out The Footy Show (with crushing shares in every demographic). American Dad and Family Guy peak at just under 1 million viewers in their late night timeslot and win in 16-39s and 18-49s.

In the top ten for 16-39s: Lost (#1), The Amazing Race (#2), Las Vegas, American Dad and Family Guy. In the top ten for 25-54s: Lost (#1), The Amazing Race (#2), Las Vegas and Today Tonight.

Quoted from Amulet
I am just in shock that so many people actually watch 'Hello Goodbye'!

I don't think I understand the appeal there...


Has anyone actually watched the show? It's boring. Really boring. It's good for like old people who have nothing to do...that's about it.

That's what I thought...

It is so dull, and you just know the host is suicidle "What am I doing, walking around an airport, intruding on peoples conversations, asking probing and inappropriate questions and just generally irritating people."

What ratings are you looking at? It was thirteenth.

Maybe he means third in it's timeslot?

If so that means nothing as those three shows switch order day by day.

I like airport shows so hello goodbye appeals to me. It makes a nice companion show for missing persons unit.

Yes, it's nice to see Seven finally steal Sunday's from Nine. I think Seven will win this week, and hopefully with new additions like Grey's Anatomy and 24 it will keep it up in weeks to come.

It takes two was very good last night, glad to see it is dominating ratings, but I'd like to see it achieve DWTS height, because it deserves it.

I'm happy that nine has won it's fifth week in a row and that nine news is doing so well again. Early on it looked like seven may win the year but I'm now pretty confident nine will do it again.

I think the lack of CSi and the last blue heelers made a big difference sunday night. When CSi returns nine will probably win sunday night again.

Monday night is a good night for nine so hopefully they'll make up some ground.

And when are stations going to realise that we don't want movies sunday night! Last week danny deckchair bombed now charlie's angels,though it did a little better.

I think Seven definitely has a chance of winning the year, but I'm not so sure about their decision to put Grey's Anatomy after Desperate Housewives at 9:30 in like 2 weeks. That needs to be rethought. They should put it up against CSI or something on Sunday nights.

Or maybe they'll put Criminal Minds up against that...

They have a small chance but nine is so powerful right now it's hard to see it happening.
I think seven has only won one year since 1983 and I don't see that trend stopping this year.
Hopefully nine will be still the one yet again ;D

This must be Nine's weakest year then? They're doing terribly, compared to what they used to perform.

I think Seven has more than "a small chance" Fajo, but I know you don't like the idea of Seven beating Nine :P
Posted by: Rossatron, June 6, 2006, 10:35am; Reply: 850
I think a small chance is about right,nine is a fair way ahead and seven aren't travelling that well right now so nine look good.

I don't know about previous years but I know seven have in the past started well only to have nine catch up and pass them,again & again.So it's probably par for the course.

Nine Melbourne - Ratings results - Monday June 5, 2006
  Author: Nine Melbourne | Jun 6, 2006, 10:50


Nine's new health program What's Good For You has established itself as one of the big hit shows of 2006 with a terrific second week performance last night, according to OzTAM figures released today.

The program, hosted by Sigrid Thornton, was Melbourne's No 1 with 508,000 viewers - a rise of 60,000 from its debut. It thrashed Seven's The Great Outdoors (342,000) and Ten's Big Brother Live Nomination (329,000).

Nationally, What's Good For You averaged a whopping 1.546 million viewers - a rise of 138,000 from week one. The Great Outdoors (1.155 million) and Big Brother Live Nomination (1.265 million) looked sick by comparison.

US drama Close To Home is also going gangbusters. It averaged 329,000 in Melbourne last night to crush Seven's Commander In Chief (281,000) and Ten's Big Brother - Adults Only (291,000).

Close To Home also delivered nationally with 1.100 million to Commander's 887,000 - its worst figure yet - and Big Brother's 881,000.

Other Nine programs to make the Melbourne Top 10 were Cold Case (473,000), A Current Affair (461,000), National Nine News (460,000) and Temptation (397,000).

GTV Channel Nine won Monday with a 29.7 per cent All People share to Seven's 28.3 and Ten's 21.1. Nine also won nationally with 29.0 to Seven's 28.0 and Ten's 21.5.



Nice to see What's Good For You doing so well it's a fun and informative show and a great link between Temptation and Cold Case.

Very nice to see TGYH rate so well. It was so funny, I'm going to try and get the episode of Ten's website...is it still up?

Anyways, Seven is definitely going to win this week, Nine just keeps getting lower ratings everyday.

Anyone else notice Deal or No Deal rated higher than Beyond Tomorrow. That's crazy!

Yeah but I thought last weeks figures for Beyond Tomorrow were unreal - as in unbelievable - or how the hell did it rate that high...

I quite enjoy beyond tomorrow love all the futuristic gadgets.

And I caught the end of TGYH whilst waiting for House and saw the daybreak bit. It was sort of amusing,woodley in the helicopter was a laugh!

TGYH was awesome last night. Glad it rated so well. It'll be interesting to see how Channel Ten do next week without the TGYH/House duo.

They're bringing some Biggest Loser special I heard. If that's true then they'll do fine I assume, but will probably experience some kind of slowdown from TGYH.

It's just that most of the stuff I like is on 9 10 2 or SBS but seven has some good shows.

I admit I am devoted to Channel Seven, but I also watch Nine, Ten, and ABC if they have good programmes.

Reception for SBS is poor in my area.

I can't really understand why Medium always rates so far down in the ratings. It's a good enough show that it should be getting more than a million viewers.

While I agree it should get more then a million I'm happy with that number.
And it quite often rates higher around 1.3 million or so. As long as it stays around the million mark and ten keep it on I'm happy.

It should be moved to a better timeslot like 8:30 Tuesdays. It mightget more viewers then against All Saints and CSI repeat.

SBS scored big on Sunday night, pushing Ten into fourth place. Thanks to eNews:

The average audience for Monday night's amazing match was 2.17 million in the five mainland capital cities, SBS's second biggest audience ever (after the World Cup Qualifier played in prime time last November. )

In regional markets there was an average audience of 731,000 and, as ever these figures do not reflect out-of-home viewing - pubs, clubs, big screens etc.

It's a spectacular result, a match being broadcast late on a Monday night has achieved a national audience on a par with a prime time NRL grand final. It shows just how how much the Socceroos and the World Cup have captured the Australian public's imagination.

Honestly it's really disturbing that so many people watch What's good for you. It is nice to see Desperate Housewives cementing it's position as the number 1 show at 8:30 though.

As for Tuesday...did everyone see how much lower the Wedge ratings are from previous weeks? :D

I actually like What's Good For You and happy it got such huge ratings. It's light hearted and informative and  bridges the gap between Temptation and Cold Case quite nicely.

I'm honestly  :o that it's now monday nights #1 show.

As for Desperate Housewives I think it's steadily fading as shown by monday nights average ratings. Remember too that it was up against a repeat Cold Case and didn't win by much.

Go Maroons and state of origin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Nine Network had a clean sweep of all demographics locally, nationally and along the East Coast, courtesy of a footy-flavoured programming schedule.

Nationally, Nine emerged as the clear victor with 39.0 per cent, annihilating Seven with 21.8 per cent and Ten with 17.8 per cent. Nine also dominated the East Coast with a share of 42.4 per cent - 21.7 points ahead of nearest rivals Seven, in second with 20.7 per cent.

Nine also took first place in the key 25-54 demographic locally with
33.2 per cent; nationally with 38.4 per cent; and along the East Coast with 42.1 per cent. In the 16-39 age group, Nine boasted winning shares of 28.9 per cent (local); 37.0 per cent (national); and 40.9 per cent (East Coast).

The annual *E.J. Whitten Legends Game *was the most-watched show in Melbourne last night with an average of 484,000 viewers and a peak of 527,000, jailing Seven's San Quentin Unlocked (11th, 322,000) and Lived To Tell The Tale (25th, 158,000).

Queensland's crushing 30-6 conquest over New South Wales in the *State Of Origin Game 2 * - which brings the series to an even draw - was the most-watched show nationally with 1,659,000 viewers and a peak of 2,145,000. The deciding match will be played at the Melbourne Telstra Dome on Wednesday July 5 and televised live on the Nine Network.

Wow that's terrible ratings for TBL. I was expecting something around 1.4 million.

Nine's going to win this week, and lose the next due to Seven bringing the return of 2 ratings successes back to TV this year for a new season.

If it continues to beat 60 minutes, Seven has a hit on their hands.

They should win tonight I hope since Grey's Anatomy premieres, but What's good for you has been getting suprisingly high ratings lately, and it's very clear it doesn't deserve it.

I don't know, not many shows at that timeslot do well, and Seven won the night in ratings because of it. If Commander in Chief was there Nine would have won the night.

It's weird to see Cold Case beat Desperate Housewives, even though What's good for you's ratings have dropped.

I think Grey's did well for 9.30pm - it's not a particularly high rating timeslot these days.

Anyhoo, here's what happened Tuesday night thanks to eNews. Note Rovie did over a million:

Seven wins primetime.

Seven clean-sweeps top six programmes on television.

Seven News wins – up 16% on Nine News. Today Tonight wins – up 14% on ACA.

Home and Away wins – up 7% on Temptation and up 36% on Big Brother. Border
Security wins – peaking at 2.20 million. Medical Emergency wins – peaking at 2.07 million.
All Saints wins – peaking at 1.62 million. Ghost Whisperer peaks at 1.12 million.

In the top ten for 16-39s: Border Security, Medical Emergency and All Saints. In the top ten for 25-54s: Border Security (#1), Medical Emergency (#2), All Saints (#3), Home and Away (#5), Today Tonight and Seven News.

The first time it happened it was a surprise but since then I've kinda become used to seeing Cold Case win monday nights. It's a surprise now when it doesn't win monday night.

And What's Good For You is still rating almost 1.5 million which aint bad. That's roughly what it's been rating since it started...

Nine must be disappointed with the results for the "Survivor" finale, even thought they did show it too late when people knew who had won. It also dragged down "CSI: NY" which undeservingly increased "Rove's" audience.

No, I don't think that's why Rove's ratings went higher. Look at Ghost Whiseprer, it's gone down from last week...I guess people just prefer comedy over drama at 9:30 on a Tuesday night.

I'm assuming Adam Sandler and Katie from BB would be responsible for the jump in Rove's ratings. He needs to get Adam into the studio for a change, rather than over the satellite.

That guy was absolutely hillarious. In fact the whole episode was great.

I didn't realise Neighbours' ratings had gone up...a lot. I'm suprised to even see it get over 1 million.

Btw I think Home and Away is doing so well because of its advertising this week. Fantastic ads I thought, made by Seven for the show I mean. Pity the show's crap, but I liked the ad...

House still doing extremely well,nice to see as last nights episode was one of the best. Think NCIS has picked up as well... 8)

I was hoping for a little higher for 24 but I think it's decent over a 2 hour period. It also allowed Seven to actually do well in a night where Ten usually dominates.

I was also expecting higher ratings for the Intruder Special, guess people just didn't care that much about it.

Prison Break has picked up a little. Why in the world are people choosing NCIS over 24? I mean, I like NCIS but seriously, 24 is more action packed in every way, and it has everything it needs to be an excellent show!

We'll see what happens tonight with 24 since it has a good lead in with Lost. Seven will win tonight I think, and it looks like they are going to win the entire week in ratings.

"24" should have premiered at 8:30 p.m.. It doesn't do well at 9:30 p.m. but at 8:30 it does better with the extra exposure. Ever since Seven moved the third season the 9:30 it has gone downhill. 0.74 million is a poor result for show that does about 12 million in the US and last season premiered to 1.38 million viewers last year on Seven on a Monday night.

I would have thought Ten would be happy with the Intruder special...winning the timeslot (whats happened to McLeods Daughters? Not even in the Top 15!) and helping Ten to win the night...especially considering the Daily show was beaten by Home and Away and Temptation.

McLeods Daughters was not on that night, that stupid 'Wine me, Dine Me' program with John Wood was on.

Beyond Tomorrow is a very poor lead-in for Prison Break.

But 24s ratings should be a huge concern. 40% drop from PB. Just goes to show more and more people are downloading thir favourite TV shows. No wonder Alias was screening as late as 12am last season, all the hard core fans resorted to the internet and got sick of waiting. Shows that rely on fans, really have to be shown within a week of the US.

That would have affected it's national ratings.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow's ratings. I wonder how the extended Daily Show went and the Wedge straight afterwards.

Of course, The Wedge was funny again, it is getting better from the first episode now that I've connected to the characters properly.

I don't like the idea of 24 being a "concern" for Seven. I would be devastated if it's timeslot at all changed.

I hope it does a little better tonight since it has Lost to go off from, but I still think it did ok over a 2 hour period.

I don't understand why Nine would show McLeods Daughters in Brisbane and not in Melbourne. More importantly I simply cannot comprehend that a program like 'Wine me, Dine me', which is simply a rehash of things shown on programs like Postcards or Getaway, can rate so well. The viwing public must be stupid. They ignore quality programs like Six Feet Under and watch crap like Wine Me Dine Me, The Wedge, Home & Away and It Takes Two.

Maybe because of the schedule changes that comes with State of Origin. It probably wasn't shown in Brisbane because of that, but still shown in Melbourne as it is an AFL football state and the State of Origin wouldn’t rate well at all. So Brisbane was probably behind Melbourne in "McLeod's Daughter's" episodes.

Finally got some ratings for thursday courtesy of the forums on http://www.mediaspy.org/

1 Seven News (7) 1.54m
2 Today Tonight (7) 1.52m
3 Missing Persons Unit (9) 1.52m
4 Lost (7) 1.49m
5 Home and Away (7) 1.39m
6 Getaway (9) 1.37m
7 Nine News (9) 1.36m
8 A Current Affair (9) 1.27m
9 Las Vegas (7) 1.24m
10 Temptation (9) 1.23m
11 Hello/ Goodbye (9) 1.22m

24- 774,000
Footy Show- 970 (387 in Melb, 290 in Syd)

I'm a little surprised that MPU is doing so well and actually beating Lost.

And 24 continues to languish. I think seven know it's a goner which is why they are burning off the episodes as quickly as possible.

Btw seven won the night by a small percentage.

It's not doing that badly, and you have to remember this was over a 2 hour period.

Anyways, I find it pathetic that the Australian public is choosing MPU, a low quality show, over a quality action drama like Lost. I guess all Lost fans are watching the show off the internet or something.

I always choose "Medium", but I can understand why it doesn't win the timeslot. Although it could rate higher if "Smallville" rated higher.

So does Supernatural.

Agreed. Medium gets crushed because it has a poor line-up. It's always competing with other top drama shows. It should be shown on Tuesdays before Rove Live.

I used to love Medium...then Ten put it up against Lost, and well...Lost in my opinion is a better show, but that's because I prefer shows like that, ie action, over shows like Medium.

If Ten shows it in the Summer though like last year I'll definitely watch it.

Tuesdays is good, but also a tough timeslot against CSI and All Saints.

EDIT: Could the F1 tomorrow morning give the Early News @ 6 a boost in ratings? I wonder...

Me too. Medium is must see tv for me followed by the brilliant Law & Order which amazingly seems to just keep being a quality show after so many years.

Oh I love Medium. Probably my favourite drama show of the week. I just love the characters - of course Alison but also her poor hubby. When is he ever going to get a good night's sleep?

And has anyone notice how similiar the kids look to their parents - at last Hollywood have cast a realistic looking family.

And it's probably the only show where I make sure I don't miss the first 5 minutes. If you don't see her dream sequence at the start, you really lose the greatness of the plots.

Well exactly. The Sunday Night Movie is no more. I think Ten pioneered the reverse trend.. but they saw the dimming of the light early I think, don't you think?

Does anyone have a tip for the next big ratings trend? A later news service?

I'm tipping simultaneously-aired drama series with the USA to combat the downloads.. of course this would mean airing most of the new series in our Summer!

I remember when it first started I thought thank god something other then movies on sunday nights.

Then nine jumped on board and seven have yet to really do much series wise sunday nights. Why not put episodes of crossing jordan? I'm sure it would rate well...

Yeah but then maybe we have too many shows on at 8.30, do you think? Maybe you're right - I mean they do the same thing every other night.

I think Seven are going for the Movie as an alternative perhaps. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't yeah?

It would be too many shows as I already tape/watch the CSIs and CIs but that seems like what people want to watch sunday nights. I know seven are trying for the alternative but I don't think it's worked so far. Have any movies rated well recently on any channel?

I know I always groan when I see nine running a movie as I know it's gonna bomb and I miss the CSIs.

The thing is... good movie costs more (I guess), and they have to schedule it against rival's programme, particularly when rival network have live sporting coverage.

Just took this from Enews about 24 this week:

• 24 (0.77 million) peaks at 1.30 million and delivers in every key audience demographic – except 55 plus which Ten wins.

That's actually really good that 24 helped Seven not only win the timeslot, but also win the night in ratings.

I got a little worried there about 24 but I'm confident if it keeps rating like that Seven will have to stick with it.

Next year, if ANY network does not do that, all ratings from pretty much every US drama will go down. Look what happened to Lost, and even 24 is a good example of this. Even Seven, who's usually the smartest network, should learn to bring their shows to our shores quicker.

Yeah but that's just the seven spin doctors hard at work.

24 may be a quality show but 700 or so thousand and running a distant third to Law & Order and The Footy Show is a poor result by any reckoning.

Anyway just enjoy it and as long as seven sticks with it who cares what the ratings are.

Maybe the networks could premiere new series of US shows in October, show them for say 6 weeks, have the Summer break, then show the rest of the series starting in February.

Nice to see Desperate Housewives do well, and Grey's Anatomy's audience has increased from last week. It's performing extremely well for it's timeslot. As for Supernatural....jeez Australia, why wouldn't you watch the finale! And yet they still manage to watch What's good for you on Nine...!
I am kind of relieved that Desperate Housewives is back to number 1 for that time slot. But why back to 8:30? I liked the 8:40 time slot :-)

I watched Supernatural during the commercial break of Housewives. Is that the season finale or the show is over?

Supernatural has been renewed in the US so I suspect last night was the season finale.
Posted by: Rossatron, June 27, 2006, 2:03pm; Reply: 989
That plus if it was the last episode ten would have advertised it as the series finale as opposed to season finale.

I think Supernatural is a fairly average show which is reflected in the ratings. It's ok but if youv'e seen the X-Files it pales in comparison.

Shame that Rove dropped. But I find it interesting that he always manages to gain viewers after The O.C.

Do you think that the Hey Hey special affected Rove Live?

Ghost Whisperer is up from last week and it looks like it took some viewers from Rove.

Loved the Hey Hey It's Saturday special what a trip down memory lane!

But it was on at 7.30pm a couple of hours before Rove so don't think it could have made any difference.

i really hope the finale gets 1.00+million viewers

The ads with her an Volzchech (how the heck do you spell his name:P) get annoying, and it probably put many viewers off.

Posted by: The Orichalcon, June 29, 2006, 5:55pm; Reply: 1002
They need to replay one of their winning shows in the 7:30 pm timeslot. It's being wasted on lame BB specials. I'd be happy if they replayed the 10 episodes of Thank God You're Here. I've rewatched some of the skits in particular over and over and they never lose their edge. They might not regain the top spot as replays, but they'll certainly do better than BB.

help me channel this thought to channel ten though: DO NOT PUT MORE SIMPSONS ON AT 7:30 WEDNESDAY.

I can just see them stuffing in "SUPER SIMPSONS SPECIAL HOUR!!!" at 7:30 wednesdays.

i mean they showed a 1hr special BB followed by an epi of the simspons! instead of an all new smallville! i mean for god sakes SUPERMAN was released today! they could at least show an epi of smallville!

Wow. Pretty impressive figures on "My Name Is Earl", however I feel that the ratings will inevitably drop as the weeks go by irregardless of the quality of the series. I haven't watched it, although I might consider it next week.

And I agree with The O.C. promos. For god's sakes, Anna and Theresa are returning on this Tuesday's episode, and Ten didn't even BOTHER to include them in the trailer (sure, Anna was in there for a split second, but I think that's insufficient).

They could advertise the series SO well, and appeal to first-time and retired viewers, but instead have made the show seem like some trashy orgy between Marissa and Volchok (<== that's how you spell his name, although some pronounce it as "Volcheck").

Why did My name is Earl do so well....and since it did so well shouldn't there have been a higher rating for Lost. Anyways, nice to see 24 pick up a little, hope it keeps rising.

As for Earl...it really doesn't deserve that many viewers. It's not spectacular.
Posted by: Rossatron, July 1, 2006, 6:51pm; Reply: 1010
The thing is with 24 because of it's format it's pretty hard for viewers to get into it mid stream thus the initial ratings probably won't change too radically.

The ratings race: Bad news is good news
by David Dale
Of course, Channel Ten didn't manufacture the publicity it got yesterday about the premature expulsion of two harrassers from the Big Brother house. Ten would have preferred that the whole thing didn't happen. But it certainly found a silver lining in the black clouds.

By showing more than two hours of Big Brother last night, Ten gained a prime time audience share of 27.5 per cent, while Channel Nine, which usually wins Sundays, got 26.5 per cent, Seven got 25.4, the ABC got 15.6 and SBS got 5.0.

Going off these figures it seems that there are more television viewers in Melbourne than Sydney. So why isn't Melbourne the biggest market, over Sydney?

ACA beats TT   8)

What's Good For You continues to do well actually beating Desperate Housewives.

And it looks like Temptation has cemented the 7pm #1 spot.

Seven won the night incidentally by a couple of points.

The ratings system must be flawed - I defy anyone who has watched 'Whats Good For You' to say it is a good show and to continue to watch it week afetr week. I have come to the opinion that people only watch it because there is no other alternative on the other channels.

And I cannot understand how Channel 7 news rates so high!

ACA won due to the advertised coverage of Big Brother scandal?

Thank God Desperate Housewives still won the time slot.

Yeh but Cold Case was a repeat otherwise it probably would have won.

Of course nine know they have the week won with State of Origin which is why we get repeats of Cold Case,CSI-NY.

Who knows but i prefer the 10 or 9 news but mainly 10 as it goes for an hour and the presenters are more down to earth.

Depends on the night as well as nine news always wins sunday nights for some reason.

Woah, nice results for Seven. They finally got back to winning Monday Nights. Anyone notice the extremely high ratings for Grey's Anatomy...at it's 9:30 timeslot! :o

That's extremely good. Seven should have something better than The Great Outdoors to beat What's good for you.

Now that State of Origin is being telecast live into Melbourne it should be interesting to see what ratings it gets.

I'm thinking 2 million easily.

Nice to see The Wedge losing viewers, and also good to see Rove getting close to 1 million viewers.

Looks like people are sick of The O.C.

The people aged over 50 prefer to watch Seven, Nine, SBS or ABC. Ten gets a really small share in that demographic (about 9% over the 5 networks)

Ten won the night in its target demographic (16-39) though. Seven only got 34% in that demographic, compared to 41% for all people over all 3 commerial networks (Ten probably got around 40% in the 16-39, leaving Nine with 26% as they do)

Nine killing in the ratings and QLD demoralizing NSW it doesn't get any better! You could here the despair in Phil Goulds voice as the time slowly ran out.
As usual nine will win the week with State of Origin.

Oh and home and away does rate well(god knows why)but temptation is now the dominant show at 7pm.

"Ghost Whisper" rose a little bit as well to reach over the one million mark for the first time at 9:30 p.m.. The same thing happened on the "Survivor" finale night, Rove averaged 1.05 million viewers as "CSI: NY" had 0.96 million.

Christine isn't such a big hit after all, which is only good news.

I wouldn't say earl dropped dramatically,a little but that's to be expected as not everyone will like it so some will drop off.

.80 million for smallville is pretty mediocre for 7.30 but it has some ratings heavies to contend with.

Would have thought the way 24 is going L&O would have beaten it easily since it started.

Try to keep in mind that people out there have different tastes. Nobody has the "wrong" taste, everyone has their own and they're all right to themselves.

I know it can be difficult to understand. Since most people today seem to think that the world revolves around themselves, but I'm sure you'll eventually learn this fact and not make such bullheaded comments.

It's only one night and Nine and Seven can win the 16-39 year old demographic. They don't because they need to appeal to older viewers too, so that their overall percentage is higher. I have even read articles that suggest that Ten "invented" the 16-39 demographic in which they can succeed in. Seven and Nine sometimes win nights in 16-39 anyway.

That's a harsh assessment that I don't assert myself... however by assertion of your own logic, who do you see was the first on the other side?  I'm confused on this particular point of your statement.

NINE WINS WEEK 26

The ratings race: Who helped the ABC recover
by David Dale.
Football won week 26 for Channel Nine. For the first three days, Seven was ahead, but after the State of Origin rugby league on Wednesday and strong AFL activities on Thursday and Friday, Nine averaged 29.3 per cent of the prime time audience. This was despite the failure of its sitcoms 'Two and a Half Men' and 'The New Adventures of Old Christine'.

Seven surrendered on Wednesday and ended with 27.7 per cent for the week, while Ten got a disappointing 21.9, despite huge publicity for "Big Brother'.

The ABC scored a healthy 15.9 per cent (thanks to 'Silent Witness', with 1.15 million, and 'Dr Who', with 1.03m) and a soccer-free SBS slipped back to 5.2.

What is wrong with you? Why can't you just accept that people watch what they want to watch, and the world doesn't revolve around what yopu like and what you want. You are seriously pissing me off with your constant whining about how shows you don't like (and probably never seen) suck. Sure, your opinion is very much welcomed here, but you've siad the same thing over and over again, and I think many of us are getting extremely sick and tired of your slagging on shows some people might like, such as Big Brother.

Get over yourself and for once, just once, make a different contribution except for you constantly complaining about Big Brother, Formula 1 and Ten.

Hey did you read his (or her) signature? The signature said every show on 7 and 9 sucked and every show on ten was the best. I relise that not everyone like the same thinks. If they did the world would be a very boring place. I have only every said that BB was crap. If I said Lost (Just an example) was crap that would just be my opinion but if I say BB is crap there is not point in denying it because it is. It is a new low for TV. There are cameras in a house watching people doing nothing for 4 or 5 mounths. If thats exiting then my name is George Bush!

When I was reading your old signature it sounded like Ch 10 had paid you to say how great they were. I wouldn't be suprised. They are pathetic. I think that crap on BB last week (?) was just something Ch 10 planed to get higher rattings. I also heard that someone tried to bomb BB. Is this true. They probably planed this too.

What the heck is it with this thread. Is it the full moon rising or what? Good grief. Everyone back up a bit and check your heart rates, for goodness sake. Dara has seen fit to modify her signature and has said she would be a good girl. Dara is a fine example of such a young woman, still at High school, who mixes it with the best and oldest of us on this (normally) friendly forum. I thought you would be a happier little vegemite MAB since now you you have a Motor Sports Board to post your little fingers off. Please play nice people. BTW TSS, I do delete double posts made accidently by me (that the little gremlin makes) but sometimes I just don't see that there are multiples because sometimes the page has gone onto a new one or whatever.

It's an iron law of the television industry that Sunday night movies no longer work. The institution known as "the national corroboree", whereby Australians would gather round the campfire at 8.30 every Sunday to share a story for two hours, fizzled out with the end of the 20th century, because any significant movie had already been seen at the cinema, on DVD or on pay TV. Channel Seven won last night by exploiting The One Great Exception to that law.


Pirates of the Caribbean was seen by 2.6 million Australians when shown at the cinema in 2003 (click here for Australia's highest grossing films). It became the number nine best selling disc of all time when released on DVD in 2004 (click here for DVD details).

And yet last night it attracted 1.6 million viewers in the mainland capitals, becoming the most successful movie shown on TV this year and giving Channel Seven 32.4 per cent of the prime time audience. Nine got 29.2 per cent with help from news and 60 MInutes, Ten got a miserable 17.7 per cent as viewers showed their boredom with Big Brother, ABC got a rare 16.5 per cent, thanks to an extraoridnary performance by Planet Earth. And SBS got 4.2 per cent as the soccer fans went to bed early in preparation for a match whose audience will be reported here tomorrow.

So here is today's challenge: Before 1pm, predict how much the sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean earned at the box office in its first four days. Since the readers of this column are multi-media scholars who frequently turn off the box and get out of the house, this analysis should be easy.

The multiplex was packed when this column went on Sunday afternoon, and we know of children who have already seen it three times. Could Pirates 2 open bigger than The Da Vinci Code (which sold $8.6 million worth of tickets in its first Thursday to Sunday) or will it be closer to Superman Returns ($7.1 m) or Cars ($4.3m)? If everyone who watched the original on TV last night had already gone to the movies, it would have opened with $17 million. Watch this space at 6pm today for the answer.

What Australia watched, Sunday
1. Nine News Sunday Nine 1.74m
2. 60 Minutes Nine 1.62
3. Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean Seven 1.58
4. Planet Earth ABC 1.56
5. Seven News Sunday Seven 1.55
6. It Takes Two Seven 1.42
7. CSI Nine 1.30
8. Turn Back Your Body Clock Nine 1.25
9. You Are What You Eat Nine 1.22
10. ABC News Sunday ABC 1.18
11. Big Brother Eviction Ten 1.18
12. CSI: Miami Nine 1.12
13. Big Brother 6:30pm Ten 1.11
14. Sunday Football -- AFL and NRL Nine 1.09
15. True Stories Seven 1.03
(OzTAM preliminary estimates, mainland capitals)

1. Looks like big brother is a big problem for ten
2. Ten just barely beat the abc
3. Planet earth is a brilliant docoumentary and it's nice to see quality television rate so well
4. Where the heck is CI?

Nice to see BB rate so badly, and finally! It got boring 3-4 weeks ago, so I guess people are showing their distaste in the program. This definitely could be it's last year, and I'm sure it wouldn't be missed.

Shocking to see Seven win a Sunday night! They usually get thrashed by Nine, but it looks like they could win this week now.

I really hope Pirates 2 does well in the cinemas, awesome movie:D

I'm looking forward to seeing how "Dancing on Ice" (is that what it's called?) does against Border Security this week. I've seen ads for this show everywhere! Even when I went to see Pirates 2 they had an ad for this show. I'd love to see it fail miserably.

I assume Nine will want at least 1.5 million for it.

Good to see an ABC program in the top 10 for once.



Yeh and it was a fantastic doco looking forward to seeing the rest.

The abc have the occasional top ten like spicks and specks which often cracks the top ten.

More on Sunday (9th July)'s rating.
http://blogs.smh.com.au/entertainment/archives/the_tribal_mind/005143.html
(Updated 6pm Monday July 10)

Quoted Text
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest sold $11.2 million worth of tickets between Thursday and Sunday night -- a record in a period when cinemas are supposed to be in a slump. Pirates 2 opened bigger than The Da Vinci Code (which made $8.6 million in its first four days) and Superman Returns ($5.3m). It's the best opening since May, 2005, when Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith scored $13.4m.

(...)

Pirates of the Caribbean was seen by 2.6 million Australians when shown at the cinema in 2003 (click here for Australia's highest grossing films). It became the No. 9 bestselling disk of all time when released on DVD in 2004 (click here for DVD details).

And yet on Sunday night it attracted 1.6 million viewers in the mainland capitals, becoming the most successful movie shown on TV this year and giving Channel Seven 32.4 per cent of the prime time audience. The usual Sunday winner, Channel Nine, got 29.2 per cent with help from news and 60 Minutes, while Ten got a miserable 17.7 per cent as viewers showed their boredom with Big Brother.

I am really surprised that Channel Seven won last night. Although National Nine News was still the highest rating show last night. I hope they will keep showing good movies in the future.

Ouch, that was a terrible night for Ten.


I hope this gives Ten an indication of how shockingly boring BB is right now.

I can't wait to see last night's ratings. I watched a bit of Skating on Ice. You can tell Nine has put a lot of money into the show.

Border Security on the other hand looks like it costs $2 to make, but it's not a bad show.

Bright spots for nine are Temptation continuing to dominate at 7pm and Family Feud improving. .74 million and getting better.

I wouldn't put much faith in the ratings - everyone knows the rating system is totally flawed. How in the world can only 3000 people meters (Australia wide) provide an accurate measure of over 20 million people is beyond me.

Here are the ratings for Adelaide from last week(Sourced from the print edition of The Advertiser):

1 Nine News (Sunday) 240,000
2 Border Securiy 240,000
3 BB Live Eviction 213,000
4 BB Daily Show (Sunday) 204,000
5 Medial Emergency 203,000
6 60 Minutes 193,000
7 Seven News (Sunday) 187,000
8 Desperate Housewives 186,000
9 Postcards 186,000
10 Law and Order: Criminal Intent 185,000

Market Shares:
Channel 9: 26.8
Channel 7: 26.5
Channel 10: 26.5

Pretty close in terms of the share from the commerical networks. Ten seems to be doing well in Adelaide each week compared to nationally, they even win a few weeks here.

Oh man that is awesome. I am really happy to see Nine fail miserably. How embarrasing it must be for them.

They spent so much money advertising Dancing on Ice and it couldn't even hurt Border Security. All it did was take 200 000 viewers, which is pathetic anyways, since Border Security got 1.9 million compared to Dancing On Ice's 1.6 million. I would love to see Eddie's face right about now...he definitely would not be smiling.

Posted by: elie06, July 12, 2006, 3:26pm; Reply: 1133
It probably will drop next week, while Border Security goes back to over 2 million viewers. I don't know of many shows that actually do better than their season premiere, but I can think of one exception: Thank God You're Here.

Anyways, it's good to see Rove over a million, but I think it's quite clear people prefer Ghost Whisperer over Rove Live now.

Ten will probably win tonight, unlike for some miraculous reason nobody tunes into Honey, We're Killing The Kids, and instead of House and NCIS everyone watches Prison Break and 24, but I doubt that will happen. But it s the PB final tonight, so it will be interesting to see how it rates against House, although I suspect it won't damage House's ratings.

What they do is like put 1000 or so "Ratings Boxes" in every major city and from those boxes they can see what channel the people are watching. Now from that they average it out and create the ratings. So really, the rating system is flawed as it doesn't really measure what all 20 million of us Aussies are watching. Anyways Dara hope that helps.

Nine Network - The Ice Is White Hot On Nine
  Author: Nine Network | Jul 12, 2006, 14:31


A peak of 1.820 million viewers tuned into Nine’s brand new live series Torvill and Dean’s Dancing On Ice last night.

The spectacular live event, hosted by Jamie Durie and Sami Lukis, saw ten well known Australian faces hit the ice under the watchful eye of Olympic Champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean.

Across the country an average All People audience of 1.609 million viewers watched the world’s greatest ice dancers perform for the first time in Australia in 12 years.

The premiere, which saw model Jake Wall lead the judges’ scoring, ran from 7.30pm to 9.39pm and grew significantly – averaging a massive 1.712 million viewers in its second hour.

In Melbourne, a massive peak audience of 558,000 viewers were captivated by the sensational ice dancing routines. An average of 482,000 viewers cheered on the Melbourne-based Jules Lund, Dermott Brereton and Giaan Rooney.

The thrills and only a few spills saw Torvill and Dean’s Dancing On Ice take Sydney’s number one spot last night, watched by a peak of 544,000 viewers. It attracted an All People average of 492,000 viewers and was also first in the coveted 25-54 demographic.

Next Tuesday at 7.30pm the tears and tantrums begin when the first skating celebrity is eliminated.

All eyes will be on the Ice to see who melts under the pressure.

Torvill and Dean’s Dancing On Ice, Tuesday 7.30pm LIVE only on Nine.

Nice to see the nine news beating seven news 8)

And it seems Family Feuds ratings are rising slowly while DOND is slowly dipping.

Suspicious Minds/Shock Docs did ok and beat poor old 24  ;D
I think seven can't wait to finish it off as it's dragging down their ratings on thursday nights.

Hmm, I wonder what happens next week when Seven has no PB anymore. I thought House would've done better, but final episodes always rate above average.

At least Ten bet Nine, and Honey did alright, although it was beaten by Beyond Tomorrow and McLeod's Sons... oops, Daughters.

NCIS also did respectfuly well.

House still did very well and it was another brilliant episode.Here's hoping House and Wilson continue to dwell together!

Looking at the guide for next week seven have put an 'adult' episode of Las Vegas on at 8.30. Now I have Spicks & Specks,Las Vegas,Without A Trace AND House at 8.30. The stations are killing me!

No it's all based on averages and estimates. The seven people watching "House" would count as seven viewers. It's not totally flawed.

They don't. They just have to make estimates based on what the people in the homes with ratings boxes in them watch. Overall it works effectively in my opinion, because the top show are generally what the people that I know watch and there is a correlation with what is watched in the US.

My friend has a ratings box, and tells me that they have a box for each TV in the house. Each time they turn the TV on, or to another channel, they have to enter the ages and number of people watching.

That's how I thought they'd work. Well if people with ratings boxes want to save one of their favourite shows, they can easily cheat the system then. :-p

I hope they invent a new system that's got more accurate results.

What did earl rate last week ?

I know it was around 1.7 million in it's first week.

Last week, Earl rated at 1.46m, so a slippage of 130,000 viewers.

Quite low for Medium, unfortunately. But still over a million viewers which is good.

What a bad week for Nine, and a great week for Seven!

It's great to see Lost pick up, as well as 24. My name is Earl and How I met your mother are performing extremely well also. I'm just suprised that Earl rates so much higher than How I met your mother.

Bad debut for Honey we're killing the kids on Wednesday...and Prison Break...suprise win their, even if it was the season finale. I can't wait to see the Las Vegas special next week replacing PB.

Nine came back to form on Sunday night, using its old favourites CSI, 60 Minutes and news to overwhelm a ratings recovery by Seven's talent quest It Takes Two (up 200,000 on the previous Sunday).

Nine gained 30.7 per cent of the prime time audience, with Seven on 29.3, Ten on 19.8, ABC on 15.4, and SBS on 4.7. Click here for an analysis of the networks' performance in the first half of the ratings year, and a chart of the most watched programs of 2006.

What Australia watched, Sunday
1. Nine News Sunday Nine 1.80
2. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Nine 1.70m
3. It Takes Two Seven 1.62
4. Seven News Sunday Seven 1.59

Nine won Sunday night with 3 out of top 5.

It is interesting to note that It Takes Two (Seven, 6.30 - 8pm) beats 60 Minutes (Nine, 7.30 - 8.30) while 60 Minutes beats True Stories (Seven, 8pm - 8.30)

Somehow, Ten did worse than ABC, with only two Big Brother shows into top 15.

It's nice to see Nine win by such a little margin on a night they nearly always win easily. I'm suprised to see Calender girls do well...it doesn't look that great.

Nine will probably win tonight though with the Kylie Interview.

The most watched show of Friday was Better Homes and Gardens (7), with 1.42 million. Most watched on Saturday was Nine News with 1.37 million. Dr Who brought 911,000 to the ABC and the rugby union brought 761,000 to Seven. After a resurgence recently, The Bill slipped back to 869,000.

Thanks to massive lack of interest in the rugby union outside Sydney, Channel Seven came second in audience appeal on Saturday night. But Seven still won the week, with an average share of 29.3 per cent of the prime time viewers, while Nine got 28.3, Ten got 21.5, the ABC got 15.8 and SBS got 5.1.

There must be a question about Kylie Minogue's "national icon" status after the distinct lack of interest shown by Australians last night in her reflections on herbattle with breast cancer.

The Kylie interview barely distracted viewers from the Despos and the doctors, with Seven scoring a healthy 30.3 per cent of the prime time audience, while Nine got 25.8 per cent, Ten got 21.4, ABC got 16.3, and SBS got 6.2.

Seven won last night with a 4 out of top 5! I guess loyal Channel Seven viewers stayed on Seven to watch Desperate Housewives since a short clip and a longer version of the Kylie Interview were shown on Seven News and Today Tonight.

Grey's Anatomy is doing surprisingly well at 9.30 time slot.

L&O SVU rose signifcantly too - obviously due to Cold Case being off the air - same audience.

Sounds about right. Those that didn't want to watch kylie instead of cold case switched to svu.

I honestly expected the Kylie special to rate higher.

Seven looks to be catching up quickly to Nine. I'm not sure anymore who will win this year in ratings.

Nine looks to lose another week. I can't believe the Kylie Interview rated so poorly. I was expecting 1.4 at least. Oh well, Bad luck for Nine.

I think Border Security and Medical Emergency will continue their lead over Dancing on Ice tonight.

Geez the ratings for DOI fell and nine still won sevens best night  :o

Nice to see Temptation doing so well at 7pm again but how long is it gonna last!

And after sevens huge win on monday they are only .9 per cent ahead. I thought nine would lose this week but now they have a small chance at least.

The Australian viewing public must be stupid - how in the world can the 'The Wedge' attract a million viewers??? Also how many people out there actually watch 'Border Security' or 'Medical Emergency'?

I know,how anyone can find that show funny is beyond me.

The ads are so cringe worthy,especially the wives of the plastic surgeons. How is that supposed to be funny?!?

To all those who say that Rove is improving, its rating don't suggest that considering
Quoted from fajo
Rove 0.85m

That is quite low considering its competition wasn't strong and were reruns.
Quoted from fajo
11. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Nine 1.17  and Ghost Whisperer (R) 0.78m

Kylie doesn't rate
From Sydney Confidential
19-07-2006


EDDIE McGuire's eye for spotting a bargain is officially shot, with the $300,000 he whacked down on Monday night's Kylie Minogue interview returning a dismal result in the ratings.

McGuire's latest big spend didn't even make the top ten shows for the night, coming in 13th place on Monday night - and was just ahead of game show Deal or No Deal in terms of numbers.

As the interview aired in the UK and Australia, Minogue took time out with her boyfriend Olivier Martinez in what she described to interviewer Cat Deeley as her "favourite place", the Italian coastal town of Portofino.

Martinez, Minogue and her security guards took in some sightseeing and a boat trip along the coast while the exclusive interview with Sky news reporter Deeley failed to attract viewers both locally and abroad.

Coming in third in it's time slot with 1.13 million capital city viewers, the much-hyped interview was beaten by Desperate Housewives and Law and Order.

Most viewers fled the interview in the first 15 minutes and continued to drop off in every city as it went on, with the most likely explanation that viewers had simply had enough after excerpts were heavily leaked to media.

And with A Current Affair viewers shown highlights of the interview earlier on Monday night, there wasn't much exclusivity left by the time 8.30pm rolled around.

Meanwhile, Minogue junior Dannii will be hoping for a little more Aussie enthusiasm when she hits town next month to promote her latest album, Hits and Beyond.

Kylie's little sister will be giving it her best shot - having locked in appearances on Video Hits, Rove Live, and Sunrise as well as an album launch event at Home nightclub on August 17

Was that because it was Seven's show? No offence.


Lol no, I just don't think it's a very good show, much the same way you feel about big brother? It has no substance and I know no one that watches it, their doesn't even seem to be fans on her, except for you? No offence.

I'm disappointed with The O.C.'s ratings. Stupid Ten and their screwed up advertising. How the hell do such awful programs like Border Security, Dancing on Ice and The Wedge rate? Sheesh.
Posted by: elie06, July 19, 2006, 7:43pm; Reply: 1205
Looks like DOI is definitely a huge flop. I think Ghost Whisperer's ratings were extremely poor, leading to Nine winning the night by 0.1% but Seven will win this week since neither of the stations have any suprises left.

Border Security back to over 2 million. It's amazing how many people like that show. I just don't see why, but good on Seven for pleasing Australians, which is more than can be said about Nine. Tsk Tsk Eddie.

Seven came third  :o

Pity that Las Vegas bombed as it's a great show.

Nice to see House back almost 1.9 million!

McLeods Daughters did very well as did Temptation with,I think,it's highest ever figure of 1.42 million.

It's interesting that it gets higher viewers at the 7:30 timeslot though.

Agree but couldn't the reason be that at 7.30 thursday it didn't have much competition whereas last night it was up against one of the ratings giants as well as Without A Trace/Spicks & Specks?

I love Las Vegas but I just couldn't watch it as I watch House/tape Spicks & Specks at 8.30. Iv'e also missed practically an entire two seasons of Without A Trace as well.

Seven made a huge mistake putting it where it did.

Wow, nice to see House back up to 1.9 million viewers. Evidently people jumping back over to Ten from whatever program was stealing viewers on Seven.

Close week. Nice to see all of Seven's shows rate well. I think 24 deserves much higher viewers but it is on 4 hours a week so I'm not suprised the ratings aren't great.

Sad to see all the sitcoms sliding,even Earl is down half a million from it's debut.

Medium picked up a little though. And Family Feud seems to be closing the gap on Deal Or No Deal. Not surprising though as DOND is getting a little tired IMO,I used to watch regularly but now it bores me.

I really think the original Law & Order's ratings could be much, MUCH higher if Ten bothered to advertise it. I only usually see the ads on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
Posted by: The Orichalcon, July 21, 2006, 5:58pm; Reply: 1224
I'd like to see Medium rate higher than that. It's a good show, but I guess it doesn't appeal to as large-an audience since it can be kind of creepy and confusing at times.

The AFL footy show rated well. What an episode. I don't know whether all that tension was set up or not, but by the end of the show it was all chaotic. (Did JB really stab Jason in the eye with his pen by accident?)
Posted by: Rossatron, July 21, 2006, 7:14pm; Reply: 1225
It's rare that a supernatural themed show rates very high because as you say their appeal is not mainstream enough to attract a huge audience. Even The Ghost Whisperer which is like a watered down Medium doesn't rate that well.

And what happened on The Footy show??? I missed last nights because nine showed the @%*#ing golf. Just typical that it was a great one and I missed it!

NINE WINS WEEK 29


Channel Nine won the week, with 28.4 per cent of the prime time audience, while Seven got 28.1 per cent, Ten got 21.8, ABC got 15.6 and SBS got 6.1.

Until Saturday, Nine and Seven were neck and neck, but then Nine scored with 'Funniest Home Videos' and 'King Solomon's Mines', which beat Seven's bizarre combination of 'Mrs Doubtfire' in three cities and 'Four Weddings and A Funeral' in two cities.

Dr Who and the werewolf attracted 1.01 million viewers to the ABC, which also triumphed with 1.03 million for 'The Bill', clearly enjoying a renaissance.

A few points on the ratings:

Honey, good improvement on last week.
NCIS doing well
DOI (or DUI) is a flop
Terrible ratings by Big Brother :/

The expulsion of Claire and Krystal rivetted 1.5 million viewers to 'Big Brother' last night, while the expulsion of Kate held 1.5 million for 'It Takes Two' (unless the ITT audience were locked onto a performance by Erika Heynatz which was worthy, as they say in 'The Producers', of a standing ovation while sitting down).

Nine won the night with 31.3 per cent of the prime time audience, while Seven got 24.1, Ten got 22.9, ABC got 16.3 and SBS got 5.4. 'Bleak House' is living up to its name by declining to 799,000 viewers, bound to get worse when the heroine is scarred by smallpox next week.

What is happening? Have the minds of Australians been taken over by some alien influence? How can a show like 20 to 1 get 1.41m viewers? It wasn't even a new episode!!!  20 to 1 is just rubbish - cheap television produced to cover gaps in Nines schedule because for some reason their executives are unwilling or incapable of purchasing/producing quality television.

Hey if it rates 1.41 million why not.

Anyway I've said this before that 20/1 appeals to those who like nostalgia and appeals to the same demo that watches Where Are They Now(another excellent show)in huge numbers. Yes it's cheap to make but it's a great trip down memory lane for many people as reflected by the ratings for a repeat.

Monday 24th July.

Seven won Monday night with 3 out of top 5; Nine had 2 news programmes made into top 5.

Last night's TV watching pattern (based on majority of audience)
6 pm Seven Seven News
6.30 Seven Today Tonight
7 pm Nine Temptation
7.30 Nine What's Good for You
8.30 Seven Desperate Housewives
9.30 Seven Grey's Anatomy

It's interesting to note that Nine's Cold Case (double episode) lost to Seven's Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy, Cold Case won Housewives in the premier episode (if I remember correctly).

Quoted from angelno_1084
Early Sunrise more than doubles Early Today. Sunrise nearly doubles Today.

(...)
Sunrise v Today Sunrise 6-7am: 226,000 Sunrise 7-9am: 457,000
Today 7-9am: 110,000 Today 7-9am: 245,000
Ten News 6-7am: 34,000


I guess (Nine Network's Today show host) Jessica Rowe's pregnancy news did not help Nine's morning news much. Rowe's pregnancy was reported in eNews, News.com.au, and is likely to be mentioned in some women's magazines (most likely excludes New Idea).

It does and so it should it's a high quality show and deserves far better ratings IMO.

Yeah, from the episode I saw I really liked it, but I'm not going to watch it that late. I'm surprised Seven doesn't move it to an earlier timeslot.

Easy win for Seven last night. Was Cold Case a repeat or something to do so badly?
Posted by: Rossatron, July 25, 2006, 12:31pm; Reply: 1248
The second one was the first was a new one.

The 1.2 million is probably an average so the new one may have rated 1.4 million the repeat around 1 million or something like that.

I don't know why they were grouped together as they always give individual ratings for the double CIs.

the problem with Boston Legal is that i watch the irst half but i end up falling alseep around 11 o'clock, which is a shame bc i really love this show. Channel 7 should really put it back to a more suitable timeslot, such a quality show deserves a better timeslot

i also end up missing out on anothe quality show in the prcess, scrubs, it really needs a new timeslot aswell!

its a shame that all these shows arent getting teh veiwers that they deserve

TONIGHT

i really hope that The OC gets a decent amount of veiwers (im hoping around 1 million), even though everyone knows whats goign to happen (thanks for that channel 10) i really hope ppl will tune in and see what a great job the writers did with Marissa Cooper's send off, as it was a great job IMO

I am quite surprise with Channel Nine's 60 Minutes doing so well. Actually, the red paperclip story (as they advertised) was aired on Channel Seven's The Great Outdoor last week, if I remember correctly.



PS - Dara, finally you noticed  ;)


is that the paperclip story bout the guy who traded his clip for other stuff?

yeah the oc should rate well.

Good to see my morning news improving. It started with 11,000 viewers, now it's tripled it's viewers. It takes a while to get a good audience in that timeslot, but I'm glad Ten is revitalising that timeslot. I think they should put David and Kim on during the 7am to 9am timeslot for the people needing their waffles. I find their 9am program a lot better and informative than GMA or Kerry-Anne.

And I wish they would give seperate ratings for DOI for 7.30-8.30/8.30-9.30.
It probably got around 1.1 million for the first hour and 1.7 million or so for the second.

Seven says Seven won last night; Nine Melbourne says Nine won last night as well.

Based on top 5 shows (nationally), Seven won last night with 4 out of top 5.

Last night's viewing pattern:
6 pm Seven Seven News
6.30 Seven Today Tonight
7 pm Seven Home and Away
7.30 Seven Border Security
8pm Seven Medical Emergency
8.30 Seven All Saints
9.30 Nine CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Based on majority of viewers, people stayed on Channel Seven until 9.30, no one was interested in Miss Universe I guess.

Miss Universe was rubbish.

And you may find that the second half of DOI outrated All Saints.

Im hoping that with a House repeat tonight Without A Trace will pull some decent ratings.

I'm not to sure about that, it took a while for BL to hit it's stride, season 1 was shut down after 17 eps and the show only just survived, season 2 was 27 eps and it seems to be a winner. Cast changes (like the addition of shirley and more airtime for Paul) as well as making Alan more crafty and Denny more "mad cow" as time went on certainly helped it I think.

I saw the other day on Law and Order-Criminal Intent that  Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease AKA  CJD and  'Mad Cow's Disease' takes about three years to run it's course from onset to death.
I was interested enough to research CJD.

What is the prognosis?

About 90 percent of patients die within 1 year. In the early stages of disease, patients may have failing memory, behavioral changes, lack of coordination and visual disturbances. As the illness progresses, mental deterioration becomes pronounced and involuntary movements, blindness, weakness of extremities, and coma may occur.

"Boston Legal" only showed 17 episodes of its first season because "Grey's Anatomy" was given its slot. ABC decides to return with an extended second season, rather then moving the show and risk killing it as it nearly did with "The Practice". Season 2 has extra episodes because it has the added episodes that weren't shown from season one. ABC has been very happy with it from day one.

Wednesday night has turned into a Black Hole. Without 'Prison Break', 'Thank God You're Here' or a new episode of 'House', thousands of Australians went off and got a life. Channel Seven's attempt to fill the gap with real life murder failed -- only 1.08 million watched the doco on Ivan Milat. And Big Brother's final days are stirring no excitement -- only 1.22 million watched last night's eviction.


Nine won the night with 26.9 per cent of the prime time audience, while Seven got 26.5, Ten got 25.5, ABC got 16.6 and SBS got 4.5.

1. Seven News Seven 1.47

8. A Current Affair Nine 1.24
9. House Ten 1.23
10. Spicks and Specks ABC 1.22
11. Big Brother Eviction Ten 1.21

Close night with nine just pipping seven and ten.

Spicks & Specks may have gotten its best ratings yet.

The eviction and even the daily show got terriblle ratings. Perhaps this will prompt Ten to not bring it back next year. That would be good.

A small resurgence for the second last episode of 'Lost' helped Channel Seven to balance a small decline for Earl and win Thursday night with 29.2 per cent of the prime time audience (to Nine's 28.8, Ten's 22.4, ABC's 15.9 and SBS's 5.3). But Nine looks set to win the week thanks to its strong start on Sunday.

At this rate, if Seven doesn't pull something amazing out of the bag in the next three weeks to replace 'Lost' and the Despos, Nine will narrowly win the year. Another Dancing With The Stars may not be enough to offset the various grand finals.

Nice to see Getaway winning its slot and poor Earl is slip sliding away.

Looks like another win to nine this week.

Okay. Maybe you should have said 'Even "Honey" rates higher than BB' instead of "Even Honey rated higher than BB."

That's where I didn't follow

Go LOST!!!

Having said that, I'm really so freaking sick of being duped by various programs into thinking that the next week is the last episode of the season.  If you're not really paying attention and doing something else it's really, really easy to get that impression and I've got this:

MESSAGE TO THE IDIOTS WORKING FOR THE RETARDED NETWORKS THAT READ THE FORUM (we know there's some of you here... and that you're morons by the way):
"I WOULD HAVE WATCHED ANYWAY BUT IT'S HAVING THE OPPOSITE EFFECT WEEK TO WEEK OVER TIME."

I feel a little better.
Lost really is more enjoyable without the network hype... everything is as a matter of fact.

The coming week does not look good for Seven, as elie06 pointed out.
Monday: Big Brother Finale from 8pm to 9.30,  Seven's Housewives airs from 8:30 to 9:30.

Tuesday: Yasmin's Getting Married is one hour long. Ten has special 2 hours of Rove Live with BB Housewives. Although Rove Live isn't doing well recently, but it's more or less a Big Brother show.

The ratings race: Bored of the Rings?

Big Brother's second last episode had a surprisingly low audience -- just 1.55 million in the mainland capitals. In previous years, it would have topped 2 million. Perhaps a million people turned off in disgust when David was evicted.

And the old Tolkien is not what he used to be, either. Last night Channel Seven showed 'Return of the King', which is the third highest grossing movie of all time in Australia (click here for details) and the number ten highest selling DVD of all time in Australia (click here for details). It averaged just 685,000 viewers -- even less than Bleak House!

Why did it do so badly? Because LOTR:ROTK has already been seen by more than six million of us. (It was also four hours long, but even between 8.30 and 9.30, it attracted only 878,000). This is further support for the networks' view that the Sunday Night Movie is an outdated concept, and it explains why next Sunday, Seven will be showing the premiere of the new US series 'Criminal Minds'.

Naturally, Nine won the night with 31.4 per cent of the prime time audience, followed by Ten on 25.6, Seven on 24.0, ABC on 15.0 and SBS on 3.9 per cent.

What Australia watched, Monday
1. CSI Nine 1.84m
2. Nine News Nine 1.58
3. Big Brother – Live Eviction Ten 1.55
4. 60 Minutes Nine 1.52
5. Seven News Seven 1.51
6. CSI: Miami Nine 1.48
7. It Takes Two Seven 1.45
8. 20 to 1 repeat Nine 1.37
9. Planet Earth ABC 1.29
10. Big Brother 6:30pm Ten 1.21
11. True Stories Seven 1.16
12. Sunday Football AFL and NRL Nine 1.04
13. ABC News ABC 1.02
14. Law and Order: Criminal Intent Ep 1 Ten 0.99

Great numbers for CSI.

Bad night for seven being outrated by the ABC and coming third.

Nine's 20 to 1 was doing very well, considering that it's a repeat and Seven's It Takes Two was semi-final.

6 pm Nine National Nine News Sunday
6.30 Seven It Takes Two
7.30 Ten Big Brother Live Eviction

The nation was split between Jamie lovers and Bree lovers last night. The (rather weak) final moments of Desperate Housewives got a far lower audience than last year and so did the (grossly overextended) final moments of Big Brother. Last year's Despo final got 2.19 million, last year's BB winner announcement got 2.22 million. Click here to find where these finales fit into Australia's most watched shows of all time.

Channel Ten won the night, with 28.1 per cent of the prime time audience, while Seven got 27.3 per cent, Nine got 24.1, ABC got 15.2 and SBS got 5.3.

To find out which movies in the past 18 months have most satisfied and most disappointed Australians, click here.

What Australia watched, Monday
1. Big Brother winner announced Ten 1.89m
2. Big Brother final eviction Ten 1.74m
3. Seven News Seven 1.56
4. Nine News Nine 1.49
5. Today Tonight Seven 1.47
6. Desperate Housewives Seven 1.42m
7. A Current Affair Nine 1.39
8. Grey's Anatomy Seven 1.34
9. What's Good For You Nine 1.28
10. Home and Away Seven 1.28

Big Brother didn't do too badly and won the night for ten.

Nine came third but the difference between first and third is not that much so it looks like nine has a good chance of winning this week.

Ironic also that the final Desperate Housewives rated lower then a regular episode.

"Desperate Housewives" actually did well. It was one of its lowest rated episodes but it beat the 0.91 million that "Grey's Anatomy" got in the timeslot last year against the BB finale.

How good has Rove been lately? Last night's comment from Pete
Helliar that "The only people who buy underwear from Coles are
people who pooh there underwear at Coles" is  the funniest thing
ive heard in ages.... and the audience applause for Michael's comments
about regretting that John and Ash weren't there was good to see.
...and Rove being able to give the housemates grief was good too
..."no one will care by next week..." was very humerous!

Seven won the night with 31.2 per cent of the prime time audience, while Nine got 27.2 per cent, Ten got 21.9, ABC got 14.6 and SBS got 5.2.

What Australia watched, Tuesday
1. Border Security Seven 2.22m
2. Medical Emergency Seven 1.78
3. Seven News Seven 1.49
4. Home and Away Seven 1.46
5. Today Tonight Seven 1.44
6. Temptation Nine 1.41
7. All Saints Seven 1.39
8. Nine News Nine 1.32
9. A Current Affair Nine 1.31
10. Dancing On Ice Nine 1.26

Big win for seven and looks like both Temptation and Home & Away have benefited greatly from the failure of Yasmin.

DOI not doing so well but probably did around 1.5 million from 8.30pm onwards.

Would it have been better to run it 8.30pm-10.30pm?

Nine Melbourne - Daily Ratings for Tuesday August 1
  Author: Nine Melbourne | Aug 2, 2006, 11:19


Nine Melbourne scored four of the Top Ten programs last night, while Ten's much-hyped new reality show Yasmin's Getting Married failed to make it into the Top 20.

Home & Away (422,000) had a rare win by a mere 1,000 viewers over
*Temptation* (421,000) while the debut of Yasmin's Getting Married engaged a paltry audience of 223,000.

*A Current Affair* (426,000) was well ahead of Today Tonight (371,000), attracting 55,000 more viewers to win the 6.30pm timeslot.

According to OzTAM results released today, Nine leads the week-to-date (Sunday to Tuesday) in Melbourne with a share of 28.1 per cent - 1.8 per cent ahead of Seven (26.3) - and also nationally with 27.6 per cent.
