    any idea why the epg is all over the place tonight??

  2. ryan March 29, 2009 at 4:46 pm -

    how do oztam give ratings for 8.30-9.30 considering everyone was told to turn off their lights and tvs?

  3. Peter March 29, 2009 at 4:20 pm -

    Wow, ch10 GNW repeat on sat got great numbers in melb!

  4. Craig March 29, 2009 at 12:15 pm -

    I wonder if ONE HD has eaten into TENs F1 ratings?

  5. thesportsfreak March 28, 2009 at 5:14 pm -

    Ten obviously won the Thursday night because of the AFL… having said that, if it wasn’t Ben Cousins’ return, I doubt it would have been that high.

  6. wamdue March 28, 2009 at 12:00 pm -

    do you know what Neighbours did on Friday?

  7. Tepee March 27, 2009 at 6:40 pm -

    Looking at Thursday’s ratings many shows rated quite similarly. I too was shocked by Ghost Whisperer being #3 but then I realised that TEN had different programming from state to state and that numbers 3 to 10 were all between 1 to 1.1 mil. Nevertheless, go TEN!

  8. Xavier March 27, 2009 at 5:53 pm -

    that was unexpected! well done Ten! first night in a while, maybe they will win tuesdays as well now since the rafters are gone.

  9. Harry March 27, 2009 at 4:03 pm -

    Glad to see TEN win Thursday Night by a strong margin.

  10. Benno March 27, 2009 at 3:54 pm -

    I’m tempted to say that the ratings for Q&A are bad, but compared to how little media coverage the censorship issue has received, 465k is a lot more people aware of the issue than before.

  11. Katrina March 27, 2009 at 3:07 pm -

    Wow..go Ghost Whisperer!

  12. Tony March 27, 2009 at 1:23 pm -

    My wife howled all the way through Ghost Whisperer. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so choked up about a tv show before!

  13. Craig March 27, 2009 at 12:48 pm -

    Okay so where are all the guys saying ONE HD is a waste of time?

    Clearly sports and AFL is still a huge draw card for FTA!

  14. damo March 27, 2009 at 12:33 pm -

    the afl game didnt rate well in brisbane. because the game was shown 11:15 and they didnt show the whole game. pathetic channel 10 and the afl for giving us these rights

  15. Seanie March 27, 2009 at 10:45 am -

    The NRL Footy Show is well and truely dead, coming third in Sydney and Brisbane behind Private Practice and Life on Mars. It really is a pathetic shell of it’s former self.

  16. Jed March 27, 2009 at 9:47 am -

    Football!! Thank god it’s back.

    Ghost Whisperer #3. Wow.

    And i watched the NRL Footy show last night at about 11.30 mind you, but that show is way better than the AFL one. They actually talk about the game.

  17. Rutzie March 27, 2009 at 9:39 am -

    Great night for Ten. Maybe they should ask for more Thursday Night AFL games in the future. Getaway seemed to be the big loser last night. Those numbers are terrible.

  18. Rutzie March 27, 2009 at 2:14 am -

    Actually Mickche is right meiji_era. At The Movies got 361,000 last week and the week before that it only got 319,000 so a decent jump up in viewers this week.

  19. meiji_era March 26, 2009 at 11:49 pm -

    Mickche says:

    that looks to be At The Movies best figure in a while

    Correct me if I’m wrong but Last week,At the Movies got More than 500k.

  20. Craig March 26, 2009 at 9:10 pm -

    @Jed wait till you see next weeks Lost!

  21. Mickche March 26, 2009 at 7:33 pm -

    that looks to be At The Movies best figure in a while

  22. Jed March 26, 2009 at 7:24 pm -

    @ Gerrard. Yes i read the Underbelly ratings wrong. I was wrong, titties do still beat quality tv shows. But 2 mil for Packed to the Rafters is awesome. And thanks ozgeek, i think i might watch NCIS, i love that show but haven’t watched cos of PTTR.

    And woah Lostwas awesome last night. I don’t know why people don’t watch anymore. Seven should have started fast tracking it years ago before the drop off began.

  23. Benno March 26, 2009 at 5:55 pm -

    Gerrard, firstly you’re comparing shows on different nights. Secondly, one is a season final, the other isn’t.

  24. Gerrard March 26, 2009 at 5:38 pm -

    At Jed,

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Underbelly beat Rafters?
    Underbelly: 2, 073 000
    Rafters: 2, 033, 000

    So I think Underbelly won.

  25. Dakota March 26, 2009 at 5:00 pm -

    Hey does anyone know if GIna Riley & Mark Trevorrow are ever going to appear on GNW and why they were taken out of the March 9 episode in the first place? I was so excited about seeing it until I read here they weren’t. The episode was only redeemed by Paul & Amanda getting along so well (They were great together in The Sideshow)

    Dak

    Mentalist is a good show and it should be on sundays like it used to be.

  27. David Knox March 26, 2009 at 1:51 pm -

    Tend to agree. It’s one thing to acknowledge the rise in ABC News. It’s another thing to say it beats a show at a different timeslot.

  28. JM March 26, 2009 at 1:47 pm -

    @Zen Man

    I dont understand how ABC News can be compared to Nine (or 7 or 10) News when they are all (with the exception of 7 & 9) on at different times….. Stupid comment.
    Like comparing Apples and Oranges.

  29. ozgeek March 26, 2009 at 12:01 pm -

    @Jed

    Go with NCIS. They are set to introduce the team for the new spin off series soon and they pride themselves on self contained episodes where you don’t need prior knowledge of the rest of the series to watch the episode. In fact, the continuity is so bad, sometimes watching the earlier episodes is a bit of a hinderance (couldn’t he speak Spanish three episodes ago and now he can’t…what the?..).

    Or you can just get the US NCIS season 6 dvd off amazon when it comes out soon and watch All Saints.

    I’m starting to wish that, just once, Hugh Laurie would break into a Blackadder character on House.

    Nine really needs to more The Mentalist because of the Footy Show its splitting the audiance, this was a show with well over 1 million viewers on Sundays nights and now ch9 has once again taken a great show and wrecked it.

  31. Rutzie March 26, 2009 at 9:57 am -

    What a great show Lawrence Leung’s Choose Your Own Adventure was. Very funny. Looks like it’s gonna be a great series. His parents are hilarious.

  32. Andrew B March 26, 2009 at 9:50 am -

    Mentalist started at 8.38 last night. Ch 7 were running just as late as well – Darklands started 9.40. Why do they keep doing this?

    Darklands would be OK if it wasn’t for that criminal phsych lady they have hosting. Bit like a poor mans’ crime investigation Aus though.

  33. tommyk March 25, 2009 at 3:11 pm -

    a well deserved victory for rafters, great episode last night. and good to see that 2mil people still care about the show.

    PTTR must be the most valued show out there. if i was the CEO of a network it would be at the top of my “must have” list. its the only high scoring show that is able to hold an audience. it’s grown from ep1 to 22 whereas shows like underbelly have dropped 500k in the first 6 weeks and will probably drop further not to mention the bigger budget.

  34. Harry March 25, 2009 at 1:56 pm -

    Great number for NCIS and Rafters. Am looking forward to see next weeks ratings on Tuesday.

  35. Jerome March 25, 2009 at 1:47 pm -

    so the rafters final scored 50k more than it’s premier. surely that is some kind of record for serial drama. especially in this day and age where everything only seems to go down.

    to all those 9 fanboys that were dead set that the ratings would plummet after the premier got 1.9 look at where we are now 22 eps later and we’re above 2mil! Great job to the rafters, one of the few shows on tv that deserves the great ratings it gets.

    also interesting to see FMF up over 100k on last week. all saints won’t have to lose its big lead in next week.

  36. Zen Man March 25, 2009 at 10:47 am -

    It’s good to see ABC News beat Nine News on Tuesday night with the exception of Adelaide.

  37. Kyall March 25, 2009 at 10:27 am -

    Yay! Rafters got over 2 million!!

  38. Craig March 25, 2009 at 10:20 am -

    Packed just missed out on top spot for the week but great to see it crack 2 million again!

  39. sam March 25, 2009 at 10:19 am -

    i see nine news is doing really well in sydney still, with that creten overton…..Oooh came in 17th in sydney …Ummm time to go bring back Fergo

  40. Jed March 25, 2009 at 10:16 am -

    So Packed to the Rafters beats Underbelly this week. Brilliant. Bout time quality beat titties. Now here’s my dilemma though. Do i now switch to wtaching NCIS even though i’ve missed all the season, or do i just settle with All Saints? If only i had my dvd recorder before the season started.

  41. Brad March 25, 2009 at 10:16 am -

    The real test for Ch.7 will come after Easter. The loss of PTTR and City Homicide will impact them greatly. They do gain the footy however which will boost their Friday nights even more.

    Underbelly will probably remain where it is now. This series is nowhere near as compelling as UB1. It seems like Ch.9 has stretched out what is a pretty thin story so it runs over 13 weeks. Blue Murder (on ABC about 12 years ago) covered most of the UB2 story in 4 hours and was miles better. Even the UB2 book got through Terry Clark in a few chapters. This is just getting slow and boring.

  42. Andrew B March 25, 2009 at 9:56 am -

    Good to see finale of Rafters get over 2 mil. Find my Family very high too (I personally don’t like it as its the same sort of stuff every week, but it certainly has an audience). 7 whips 9 and 10 and is now winning the week convincingly.

  43. Alicia March 24, 2009 at 9:40 pm -

    Ok this is my 1st post but have read daily for months. I did not find last weeks “Rafters” predictable (thought was cancer), but the ex Shannon being gay!! Cmon that was so easy to pick and cliched! How many story lines use that as a ‘shock’ factor. Great episode which made me think and cry as a mum, but bring in a regular gay character rather than its ‘all ok my ex is gay factor’!!

  44. vid March 24, 2009 at 7:17 pm -

    underbelly will be fine.the numbers will increase near the end of the series.

  45. Harry March 24, 2009 at 4:00 pm -

    NCIS is doing well for repeats at 9.35pm.. from 600,000, this week almost 900,00. TEN will stick with that I reckon.

  46. Bogues March 24, 2009 at 2:08 pm -

    I thought figures for the HD channels, and ABC2 were now part of the OzTam ratings. Is that correct? And if so, does that mean that no-one (with OzTam meters) watched Footy Classified on Monday night in Sydney and Brisbane on 9HD?

  47. ryan March 24, 2009 at 1:35 pm -

    good numbers for ncis repeat! can only see it going higher every week! ts strange a 9.40 program rates better than an 8.30 program

  48. Jezza of the city March 24, 2009 at 1:12 pm -

    Great to see 21/2 men picking up. It is a shame ch9 don’t show it more often, say 15-20 times per week!!!

  49. muzza March 24, 2009 at 1:08 pm -

    can anyone tell me what time the lotto results were on nine as i have missed them the last two weeks?

  50. Andrew B March 24, 2009 at 1:07 pm -

    The drop in UB can pretty well all be attributed to Melbourne. Down from 729k to 627k. Seems lees people than usual watching FTA in Melb last night for many programs as well. Something on the rest of us don’t know about?

    wk13: 1 Underbelly:2,073,000 615,000 627,000 364,000 214,000 254,000
    wk12: 1 Underbelly:2,174,000 630,000 729,000 375,000 204,000 236,000
    difference: -101,000 -15,000 -102,000 -11,000 +10,000 +18,000

  51. Craig March 24, 2009 at 12:37 pm -

    Still above 2 Million but is UB slipping?

  52. Brodie March 24, 2009 at 10:51 am -

    Scrubs did quite well this week. In the 16-39 demo it was number 2 for the night after Underbelly.

  53. Luke W March 24, 2009 at 9:59 am -

    Well done to Scrubs for getting more viewers then last week. Underbelly better watch out, because Rafters could snatch the number one show of the week for this week tonight with only a 2.073 figure. Also great to see Housewives getting consistant (1.0-1.1) numbers week after week. I think the slight rise in Scrubs viewers lead to a little Housewives boost.

  54. Rutzie March 24, 2009 at 9:36 am -

    Looks like Seven’s punt with Scrubs has paid off. They’re not awesome numbers but very respectable. There must have been good word of mouth last week. Makes you wonder why it’s taken so long for it to get a primetime slot. Looks like Underbelly is starting to shed some viewers. May even drop below 2milllion next week.

  55. Dino March 23, 2009 at 9:45 pm -

    Haha, this is getting funny. Last week there were calls that 7’s lineup was a failure and Sunday Night should be axed.

    This week 7 are first, with Sunday Night bouncing back to trounce the possibly axed Domestic Blitz.

    Next week will probably see 7 back to second or third, before going back to first the following week.

  56. Rutzie March 23, 2009 at 7:12 pm -

    SN fights back on the back of some good stories last night. Note to Seven, leave those rubbish puff pieces for TT

  57. Craig March 23, 2009 at 5:41 pm -

    Dexter 11:40pm here, well that’s what the TV guide said. I didn’t stay up to watch it as I saw S2 last year on Showcase, they would have done better to rest Dexter for a few weeks until after the swimming.

    Bones re-run beating Rove, no wounder ch7 doesn’t want to waste new eps on Sunday night.

  58. Tepee March 23, 2009 at 5:18 pm -

    Sunday… till the tightest and most volatile night on TV (or is that Saturday?). Most shows are rating very similarly but a few trends that seem to be forming are that Boring, er, Border Security is the fave at 7:30, The Biggest Loser is the most popular at 6:30 (yay!) and Dance is consistently outperforming the cop shows at 8:30.

  59. Craig March 23, 2009 at 5:16 pm -

    I must be to early sometimes as there are no pay tv ratings again lol.Thanks for your comment last week David,had no idea anyone would even respond lol

  60. Goonies March 23, 2009 at 4:45 pm -

    Maybe if Rove actually spoke to his guests a little more rather than dribbling on to his ‘hilarious’ buddies on the couch all night, we actually get some insight into his guests and people may tune in a little more.

    Also, does anyone know where Carrie Bickmore came from (I’m guessing radio)? I cannot stand anything abut her and especially hate how she can’t even keep a straight face for her own news segment – like everything she says is just soooo funny she can’t help herself. I can honestly say I have not laughed at her once.

  61. ryan March 23, 2009 at 4:23 pm -

    rove is great!! he has awesome segments! i still watch it every week even if the guests arent great. rove is massive for ten and constantly wins in their demos.
    surprisingly ten won in 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54 last night!

  62. Someobe BBBA March 23, 2009 at 4:04 pm -

    I can’t believe Channel Ten replaced Dexter with swimming after how it owned its timeslot last week. Stupid, stupid move.

  63. Andrew B March 23, 2009 at 3:26 pm -

    Shows like Rove will always fluctuate depending on the guests he has on. Just like Sunday night and 60 minutes fluctuate based on their advertised stories for the week.

  64. THTANK March 23, 2009 at 3:06 pm -

    Well it looks like no one wants to watch Rove anymore. Thats a good sign. Maybe Rove should see these ratings and suddenly realise that having the same thing every week doesn’t make good entertainment.

    I would rather watch The Best of Hey Hey its Saturday then Rove.

    Any supporters??

  65. shaun March 23, 2009 at 1:53 pm -

    Great to see 7’s great line up is back to the no.1 spot again, especially border and triple ooo hereos both beating dance and 60 minutes in the competitive 7:30 to 8:30 slot and sunday night doing better coming 2nd and blitz 3rd and loser still seems to be popular coming 1st in the timeslot but good to see city homicide doing better but very close with csi but rating well but still not the ratings it was getting on mon nights with over 1.6 mill viewers i just hope it grows as the series goes on, but another problem for seven would be the latest series final is on 29th March so bones will take over but they’d have to get new episodes if ratings were to help so we’ll have to see how the ratings play out with key big shows for seven finishing rafters and homicide, but they will be back mid year so they will fight back after 9 will have a bit into the ratings in april,may,june, then seven will rule from july to november and take the no.1 spot once agin

  66. ryan March 23, 2009 at 1:17 pm -

    harry i couldnt agree with you more!! ten need to do a few things
    1. axe out of the blue and either put 2 eps of the simpsons or eps of americas next top model on at 5.30 or have news until 6
    2. get guests on rove we have actually heard of!! rove’s guests are pretty poor this yr.
    3. dont put swimming on a non sport night! stupid move, dexter for after rove!
    4. Stop being so stupid TEN!

  67. Harry March 23, 2009 at 12:43 pm -

    Dance delivers again, best performances so far this season. Great number for Loser, its highest ever this year for a weigh – in. TEN is silly for putting Swimming on, didnt do them any favours at all. TEN, get rid of Out Of The Blue already, Simpsons would rate higher than what it does so put that on. Rove needs bigger guests, significant drop this week, I think that and Swimming let TEN down.

  68. ryan March 23, 2009 at 12:35 pm -

    10 are stupid for putting swimming after rove!! they should have just said swimming on 1hd or 12 sd next and had deter on then! also out of the blue is bombing and not helping ten at all, they soooooo need to change back! i want better news coverage on weekends on ten!! we go from 40 mins of news during the week to about 15 on weekends!! stupid move!

  69. ryan March 23, 2009 at 12:30 pm -

    im a little confused as to how nine were ahead of ten by 1.9 percent when they didnt win the 6.30 till 9.40 slot and were only just ahead from 940 onwards??

  70. Floyd March 23, 2009 at 11:52 am -

    CH 7 is killing 24 by showing it at 11. :(

  71. David Knox March 23, 2009 at 10:53 am -

    Lewis this is in line with OzTAM format.

  72. Lewis March 23, 2009 at 10:50 am -

    David, are the cities in the right order? Surely more people in Melbourne watched City Homicide than in Sydney, so shouldn’t Melbourne be the first city in the header?

  73. Jerome March 23, 2009 at 10:45 am -

    much better sunday night last night, and the ratings are good as well. that jamie durie report turned out really well, especially that HD cinematography. mike amor did a good job too, maybe he should be a regular. surprisingly ross coulthart probably had the weakest report last night =(

    CH- another really good episode last night, very good ending, i hope the ratings pick up for next weeks season final.

  74. tony March 23, 2009 at 10:20 am -

    A strong result for Sunday Night. Jump to 1.2 keeps it alive. And good message for them – strong stories gets strong numbers. Was a deserving show last night.

  75. Brodie March 23, 2009 at 10:05 am -

    The unpredictablity of Sunday. Seven third to first this week, which is quite surprising with the final ep of CSI with Grissom.

    Sunday Night up quite a bit on last week, with Domestic Blitz relegated to third. Though I still think Nine’s axing of the show is premature.

  76. Andrew B March 23, 2009 at 10:05 am -

    Notice all the new ads last night? – Optus communication, cadbury with gorilla drummer, Hahn ad, etc. Must be ad awards coming up!

  77. bindi March 23, 2009 at 9:58 am -

    the swimming totally bombed and it took out dexter with it, what a nose dive. maybe everyone had to record it and since the ratings don’t measure that there were more viewers, i just hope the numbers get back up next week and not everyone was driven to the dvd by the swimming.

  78. tommyk March 23, 2009 at 9:55 am -

    well grissom’s final episode of CSI didn’t fare well down 20k on last week, given the amount of promotion it’s been getting i though it would blow the competition out of the water.

    weekend sunrise still doubling today on sundays ratings. what’s going on there?

    Infamous Assassinations Seven 600,000 – whoa!

    sunday night is still rating competitively but it looks like those axe rumours for domestic blitz are getting stronger every week.

  79. Camo March 23, 2009 at 9:46 am -

    question …how can an update score so highly…arent they only on for a couple minutes and not the 15 minutes that i thought ratings were based on?
