  1. How has Neighbours and Ten News been going this week? Do you think that Dexter’s Ratings will improve or decrease? P.s is their anything on a Gordon Ramsey Australia series for next year? Or is it just rumours?

  2. G’day David. Great blog. Just a quick question about Two And A Half Men. Given that it’s on five times a week and are only 24 episodes in a season do you know what channel 9 are gonna do when they run out of episodes.

  3. The Singing Bee is rating so well because it’s the celebrity version (I love the show, so I’m not bagging it, but the celebrities obviously make a difference). The later timeslot could also have made a difference, too.

    Kyle and Jackie O have a three year contract to host BB and the Dreamworld is contracted for another year. Unless the show is actually losing money for TEN (doubtable), they’re not likely to want to pay out those contracts. The show will be back (making the fans happy and giving those who don’t even watch the show something more to complain about :-). Bear in mind that *nothing* rates like it used to these days. Six years ago, the top-rating comedy in the country attracted over 2m viewers every single week. The top dramas rated even higher. Now, it takes a special, a sporting event or something really unusual to rate anywhere near 2m (e.g. 60 Minutes last week). The situation that would be concerning a network at the moment is Home and Away’s. Two and a Half Men has spent years as a filler program with numerous false starts and failed timeslots. Now, it’s actually beating Home and Away on some nights, which must be a worry for Seven.

  4. good to see singing bee getting decent ratings at last. It was a much better show- mainly thanks to Tim Cambell, who is a thousand times better than Joey Fatone.

  5. Lol, no one watched BB that night, they watched the Pamela Anderson show :)
    You could put Pamela Anderson on Huey’s Cooking Adventures and it would rate well.
    BB fans need to realize that if you need to pay out a BIG load of cash to get ratings then its not viable.
    They wanna boost the ratings? New ideas, not Million dollar band aids.

  6. TEN will be very happy with the BB ratings for last night. The daily show was way up and the eviction/Pamela Anderson special was a huge hit. Not bad for a show that “no one watches any more”! :-)

  7. What happened to Search & Rescue last nite?

    Glad to see Prison Break failed!! It should have ended at the end of the 2nd Season. I have seen this season so far and it is worth missing….. as much as i love the cast

  8. Last weeks 8:30pm 2.5men did not play in AFL states because of EJ Whitten Legends Game.

    Think Nine and Seven will both be happy last night with their new offerings.

  9. Hi David,

    7 must be pleased with the figures for The One on Tuesday night. Word of mouth, and some press coverage should see them easily break 1.5m surely?

  10. Looks like viewers have had too much Gordon Ramsay judging by the figures for The F Word. Great to see City Homocide performing so well.

  11. Way to go Neighbours getting 0.965 Monday night. The show is absolutely brilliant these days. So close to a million. Shouldn’t be long until it overtakes the abysmal Home & Away.

  12. Ten really needs to do a complete rewrite of their schedule. The channel is just low at the moment, it’s unbearable to see the results for their shows bar a few.

  13. Man, talk about Seven getting THUMPED last night. Was pretty consitent to last week, Gladiators has always hovered around that mark and good on em too!
    Sixty minutes looks like its going to be the most watched show of the year the way its going.
    I’m wrapped Dexter did so well, not surprised about Rove, very tragic show.

  14. Due to AFL last Sunday, Gladiators was shown in Perth on Thursday in place of My Name is Earl and How I Met Your Mother. This means the grand final was shown in all states last night.

  15. Wow Private Practise and Lipstick Jungle both bombed in the ratings. Both lost 300,000 from their premiere last week. It’ll be interesting to see the figures for them for next week. Also surprising that Dexter outrated Rove. It might turn out to be a black horse for Ten. As for Gladiators, that was a decent figure for a grand final, although to give it credit Perth is behind by a week.

  16. 60 minutes ratings are easily explained – Exclusive interview with the mother of the children killed in Cowra during the week. It was an amazing compelling story.

  17. Glad to see Dexter wasn’t seriously effected by one of the most boring Rove’s of the year.

    Also glad to see that load of crap Lipstick Jungle not do so well.

  18. Luke (Lakeyboy)

    I was going to ask the same thing about 60 Minutes. It must not have been that great if I didn’t hear about it!

    Also, is Gladiators one week behind in Perth because it’s affecting the ratings maybe?
