    I agree with Neil. Ever since Seven shoved Lost down to 9:30pm, it’s been rating poorly, but it does fine during 8:30pm. I would’ve swapped Ghost Whisperer, and Lost around, and put that hideous “Undress the Nation” show at 10:30pm. Or not on air at all.

    You’re right, Lost does not deserve this.

    Canal Road bled viewers this week…roughly 200,000 down from last week, a shocking result considering it only started with just over 1Mil
    Lost deserves much better than this – Thurs ep was fantastic
    Ghost Whisperer does nothing and im not even sure why it’s there

    Lost should have swapped places with GW, and not been shoved to 10.30…Seven are idiots

    Two words: Ghost Whisperer.

    People often confuse the number of shows listed in the top ten as indicative of a network’s evening shares. Big mistake.

    Seven fell away from 8:30. Nine may have sat in second place with its early evening shows but it picked up pace from 8:30, and as you can see, Footy Show held until 11pm.

    You could have ten shows of six minutes long in the top ten but it still equals 60 minutes of evening share.

    Look to the duration of programming not number of shows.

    Hey david,
    how can nine win by the same margin on thursday night as seven did on wednesday night even though seven had the top 5 shows and the highest rating show of the week, however on thursday nine only 1 show in the top 5 and 4 in the top 10. Somthing fishy going on at oztam maybe?

    In Perth Brothers and Sisters, My name is Earl and Police Files unlocked were’nt shown. I really wanted to see Brothers and Sisters this week it looked really good- it rated good as well. AFL Eagles game was on untill 8:30 then we had Gladiators and 9:30 Greys Antonmy then 10:30 Sub Secrets. Why is this? Will they (Brothers and Sisters, Files, Earl) be on this week?

    Great to see 60 Minutes doing so well – great episode last night.

    Looks like Grey’s Emergency promos worked a treat beating CSI, although that doesn’t bode well for Sea Patrol as Desperate Housewives has an equally big event.
