    Nine’s state-of-orign experiment seemed to have worked a treat. How did it go in each city?? Maybe this could lead to live NRl games in Melbourne!

    For the record, it was just under 600,000 which is practically what big mouth is, and they could always put it on at like 10.30 instead of shafting that show, they do it to almost everything, so ppl have no idea when shows are on these days without checking guides. I guess that’s why i avoid watching any show live with a reality show that night

    Benno L&O was doing horribly. Check the ratings archives from a few weeks back…it was pulling less than 400,000 a week. It was the lowest rating primetime show of the month. SVU is a different story, but Big Mouth is getting 33% better ratings than L&O was. It was originally going to use the 9:30pm Tuesday slot, but then they moved it to Monday after L&O’s ailing ratings, a wise move considering the NCIS repeats in that slot are doig around 1 mill every week. But all in all, Big Mouth is flopping and they should be thinking about broadcasting some new series. Maybe Swingtown could be premiering in that slot soon, if they choose to fast-track it from the US.

    Ha, big mouth is doing bad. Serves them right, they put law and order on for 3 new eps of the season. Are they that short sighted that they didn’t plan big mouth before they advertised the new season of law and order?

    Domestic Blitz is a real goer!
    Australian Story mixed in with Renovation rescue! It cant miss.

    It will be pulling in 1.5 in the next 2-3 weeks.

    Have a look at the numbers for Big Brother’s eviction. Just Shocking! The new format is not helping and Kyle and Jackie O are just horrible. Bring Back Gretel I say.
    Also another thing i noticed last night was the evictions are not live any more. Any reason for this?
