    A third encore performance of The Chopping Block – Saturday night – straight after fantastic Survivor finale. Obviously they think somebody is watching Survivor and may stay up even later to watch TCB.

    So,my proposal is: Give us Survivor Micronesia ASAP and I promise I will watch TCB after it.

    Do we have a deal Ch 9????

    (Sorry David to air my Ch 9 Survivor frustration in your blog – but a third encore – really!!!)Four Hours of one episode of TCB this week. I just couldn’t believe it when it came on.

  2. ka-ching February 9, 2008 at 12:51 pm -

    Thanks again. So, TCB had ove 700,000 viewers in its first airing, then another 540,000+ viewers in the first encore + however many watched it on Friday night. The anticipated benefit of this I presume is that the majority may come back next week.

    In the meantime they push shows around that already have a fan base (even if it is at 10.30pm) like AMS. Other shows like Survivior that maybe no longer set the ratings world on fire but are still reasonable reliable if aired regularly are held over for months while they literally force 3 airings of one episode of a new show on us – which to be honest, I doubt is going to ever rate it’s socks off.

    Pitting TCB against SYTYCD was just a major blunder. The U.S. version of that show attracted a good audience and the Aussie version was always going to go higher – at least at the start.

  3. David Knox February 8, 2008 at 10:03 pm -

    Ok… preliminary ratings that we get for the next day indicate the number of viewers in a given timeslot. On occasions a show is changed at the last minute, but will still be in the OzTam system as was originally scheduled.

    Thus, when it rains at the cricket, or a network switches shows at the last minute, the preliminary figure may indicate a viewing audience for what was originally planned.

    This is amended later. So the “audience” for AMS actually shows what the Chopping Block repeat got, which is what aired.

  4. ka-ching February 8, 2008 at 9:22 pm -

    I noted the * but I still don’t quite get it. Does the number of viewers displayed tell me how many people watched The Chopping Block on that night – because that was what was on in that timeslot. “Preliminary ratings are for what was scheduled” – how can that be if the show wasn’t on to be viewed? I am glad AMS will air next week though.

    Will they add up how many people watched TCB over it’s 3 screenings this week?

  5. David Knox February 8, 2008 at 5:17 pm -

    I’d already noted the switch via the asterisk. Preliminary ratings are for what was scheduled, rather than the actual telecast. When cricket is rained out this always happens.

    AMS bumps forward to next week.

  6. ka-ching February 8, 2008 at 4:32 pm -

    How did Amazing Medical Stories rate that many viewers when it was removed from scheduling to make way for the first repeat of two of The Chopping Block – or was it only Melbourne that had this switch?

    So does that mean the episode of AMS that was to have been screened last night, I am now not going to see?

  7. David Knox February 5, 2008 at 4:04 pm -

    That’s in Week 5 thread, Matthew. Click LAST WEEK in menu.

    ;-)

    What did that Family Guy-athon get? You think it’ll become The Simpsons of Channel 7?

  9. slydoggie February 4, 2008 at 3:39 pm -

    I’m with you Daniel. Didn’t watch the American series much, but really enjoyed last night. Hope it continues!

  10. Daniel February 4, 2008 at 1:34 pm -

    I must admit, I wasn’t expecting to like SYTYCD as much as I did. Glad it got the viewers it deserved.

  11. craigiej February 4, 2008 at 12:34 pm -

    i didnt see all of it but “dance” was very entertaining and well produced, will be one of the hits of the first part of the year I reckon, ‘the zoo’ was very cute as well and should do good numbers

  12. James_Melb February 4, 2008 at 10:44 am -

    Seven did alot better than i thought, especially with ‘the zoo’ beating the first half of the biggest loser.. great figure for ‘samantha who’ considering the dip in veiwers from ‘the zoo’ onwards.. and also condsidering it was up againist SYTYCDA

    personally loved ‘samatha who’ was very enjoyable and funny first ep.. bring on more :D

    but congraulations to ten for 1.82million for SYTYCDA.. would they have been expecting 2million tho?
