    Anyone seen the SBS doco “Is your house killing you? Wednesdays 7.30pm? What are the ratings like?

  2. David Knox October 21, 2007 at 10:51 am -

    Weekend figures are harder to acquire, I will try to update with info at a later point.

    Saturday seems like a good day for the ABC, would it be possible to see how the ABC fared overall with the evening shares?

  4. Neil October 19, 2007 at 2:11 pm -

    I know…im really annoyed with viewers really
    everyone flock to shows like Today Tonight/ACA & Futurama, whilst they ignore soild US programming like Bionic Woman & Heroes….Heroes is on of TV’s best shows im my opinion, but it rates so poorly….really, when you look at the ratings all week, you could only honestly say that a dozen or so shows rate well (i.e 1.4 Million or more)

  5. Trent October 19, 2007 at 11:49 am -

    Geez, even Ghost Whisperer outrated Bionic Woman. Such a shame, i think this is a great show.

    what a dud of a night, if the highest rating show was Today Tonight! and Heroes, such a brilliant show, fast tracked but under a million! I really hope this does not make Seven re-think their fast track strategy, because the figures are lower than the 1.1 million it used to average towards the end of last year.

  7. David Knox October 18, 2007 at 11:34 am -

    Newstopia rising. 261,000.

  8. David Knox October 18, 2007 at 10:43 am -

    Seven’s luck run out at 8:30pm, and ratings run til Midnight.

    Nine moving Damages turned out to be a strategic move, with Without A Trace rating higher.

  9. Anonymous October 18, 2007 at 10:30 am -

    How can channel 9 be higher then 7 overall on Wednesday night?

  10. Anonymous October 18, 2007 at 10:28 am -

    Just wondering if Newstopia fared any better this week?

    i dont mind spin…..but at least spin the truth.

    For the readers who were interested for the Perth Telethon figures:

    44. TELETHON CLOSE 2007 Seven: 210,000

    67. TELETHON LATE AFTERNOON 2007 Seven: 138,000

    85. TELETHON MORNING 2007 Seven: 100,000

    86 TELETHON EARLY AFTERNOON 2007 Seven: 96,000

  14. David Knox October 15, 2007 at 5:48 pm -

    It’s called spin, and that’s why those blurbs are never published in TV Tonight.

    You should see the TEN spins.

    Where do 7 get there figures from for their Daily Ratings Reports?

    “Australia’s Best Backyard demolishes Singing Bee (up 21%) and Thank God You’re Here and wins in total viewers and 25-54s. Hot Property is up 53% on Dirty Jobs and wins in total viewers, 18-49s and 25-54s.”

    Since when does the difference between (ABB) 1.088 and 1.008 (TSB) equal 21%? and the same with Hot Property & Dirty Jobs…

    I know you dont work out the figures but id like to know how they do.

  16. David Knox October 15, 2007 at 2:02 pm -

    Sorry, all I have is Perth evening shares:

    Seven 35.1%
    Nine 24.0%
    Ten 20.9%
    ABC 15.7%
    SBS 4.2%
