    James it’s straight from OzTAM.

    Hey David you made a mistake with harry Potter it was the prisoner of azkban not the The Half Blood Prince

  4. showboat July 12, 2009 at 9:56 am -

    7 is leading the other networks by about 25 points. Cant wait to see how this translates in to the overall weekly ratings.

  5. shaun July 11, 2009 at 3:31 pm -

    great week for 7 with 5 winning nights and even thurs night 1st win this year and knock 9s t.i.p and footy shows down the ratings and should win fri and sat win be any ones guess but it won’t hurt 7 win the week by a huge margin, and just wondering are we getting fridays ratings?

  6. Jed July 11, 2009 at 1:33 pm -

    @Harry. The first Rush promos i saw, showed Stella touching up Michael, and other promos had Jolene Anderson walking into the showers with Lawson and Josh. Just seemed to me like they were only interested in promoting the sexiness of the show. Not the action side of it. That is all. There’s been some decent promos now.

  7. showboat July 11, 2009 at 12:07 pm -

    I’ll make a wild prediction here:7 might just win the week.

  8. Jack July 11, 2009 at 2:21 am -

    Rush is unlikely to get over 1.2 mill.

  9. Peter July 10, 2009 at 10:25 pm -

    Wow, i wonder if 7 could pull off a clean sweep on the nightly win front? Saturdays are still the most unpredictable night one tv!
    BTW, is this the first Thursday that seven have won this rating year? Other then the one win Ten had with the AFL, havent all Thursdays been won by 9?

    Its great to see SBS do well, but i dont think its making much of a difference to 7′s number, or even the ABC for that matter. Its only ten and especially nine that are getting lower than normal numbers

    Good to see Masterchef first on 4/5 days this week, second on Tuesday, just 200k short off Rafters. TEN got hammered on Thursday, thats appauling! I hope Rush can help, deserves high ratings that show!

    @ Jed,

    How do Rush promos come across as anything associated with porn?

  12. David Knox July 10, 2009 at 2:54 pm -

    Nothing from ONE made Thursday’s Top 100, so below 98,000 for boxing etc.

    Geroge, a 90 min MasterChef will lead into the reason premier of Rush next thursday. As far as im aware, this 90min special will reveal the 2 finalist for Sundays finale and should give rush a great lead in. the week after there are only 2 eps of rules so Rush will have this as a lead in for 2 weeks unfortuently. Hopefully ten air the last 2 eps as a 1hour finale on the 23rf July and get rid of it. (it should be played out with only 2 eps left) and start fresh in the timeslot. What ever they put there in the slot has got The Amazing Race and Getaway to compete with.

    im also interested in the ratings for the boxing on ONE last night. as a sports lover, i was switching between the boxing, cricket, cycling and afl footy show.

  15. George July 10, 2009 at 1:38 pm -

    Good on SBS going so well with the Ashes! However TEN getting below 20% share is not good. Good to see Nine not win a Thursday! Hopefully Nine will get the message soon that their programming is trashy and do something about it!

    Rules of Engagement bombed once again. I hope TEN don’t keep playing it before Rush after MasterChef finishes.. That’s setting things up for ratings hell.

    @Jed and @Ryan:

    The promos for Rush barely have any touchy-feely crap compared to other shows. They hint at stuff happening, but the bulk of the promos have been for the action of the show.
    I do agree that the explosion looks fake in the ads, but when you actually watch the episode with the entire scene it looks a lot better.

    Great points James!!…………After nine pm it was a great night, exept for my thumb LOL…switching between…boxing..cricket..tour de france..sweet nite

  17. Ryano July 10, 2009 at 1:29 pm -

    How did the boxing go last night on One HD?

  18. ryan July 10, 2009 at 12:19 pm -

    totally agree jed. and what about that explosion ! how fake does that look lol!!

  19. Darryn July 10, 2009 at 12:17 pm -

    What a crushing week for 7.
    Those figures for 10 are plain embarrassing. MC looks like it takes around a 30 share, so the rest of the night was 14-15?.

  20. Andrew B July 10, 2009 at 11:48 am -

    Also 7 having all their shows offset half an hour would have helped their win as it makes it hard to flick between shows, not to mention GW & GA nearly at end of season.

    Goes to show that footy shows are not unmissable and drop when there are other sport options.

  21. Jed July 10, 2009 at 11:37 am -

    Thursdays suck. I remember a time when Thursday was the best night of the week for television.

    What is up with Ten’s promos for Rush. Most of the promos look like they’re advertising for a porno. It should rate better on Thursday 8.30 but its not going to win any new viewers if it just advertises them touching each other.

  22. David Knox July 10, 2009 at 11:27 am -

    Ellie look to SBS share…. Footy Show down against Ashes.

  23. Ellie July 10, 2009 at 11:17 am -

    I think it has been a while since Nine lost a Thursday? I think the poor numbers for Trouble in Paradise must of hurt them bad last night.

    They must be hoping those farmers wanting wives will prop up the second half of the year!!

  24. James Grant July 10, 2009 at 10:58 am -

    Pietro – point taken but I guess that’s what this blog is all about – dishing out the good with the bad – I have a love/hate relationship with both ACA and Today tonight – I sometimes ‘love’ writing ‘bad’ reviews on both shows because often that’s all they really deserve. Last night’s story on Mitchell Johnson was just as disgrace – here he is playing cricket for the country and there’s good ole ACA with his mum dishing all the dirt on his dirty clothes – I say let’s dish the dirt on ACA!

    I don’t ever not watch a show because I don’t like it – sometimes the worse the show the more we’ll watch it just out of curiousity – Quite a lot of the comments on thIs site relate to a viewers dislike/discomfort and disgust with a particular show – I think that’s healthy – its viewer feedback and that’s what I guess makes this blog and others like it interesting!

  25. pietro July 10, 2009 at 10:40 am -

    James Grant…you tuned in, and that’s all they wanted.

  26. Brodie July 10, 2009 at 10:26 am -

    Ten and Nine’s schedule’s look to have collapsed last night, largely due to the Ashes on SBS.

    Seven’s female skewing night held up very well. The Grey’s Anatomy double ep did excellent figures from 9pm – 11pm.

  27. Jake July 10, 2009 at 10:16 am -

    Wow, Seven wins a Thursday! Ghost Whisperer holding better this week.

  28. James Grant July 10, 2009 at 9:07 am -

    That slop A Current Affair is at it again – it was advertising all day ‘Mictchell Johnson’s mum declares war on gold-digger! ‘ I tuned in to see how they’d crap on about this beat up and that’s exactly what it was. An interview (possibly paid) to a woman who obviously doesn’t like her little boy’s new girlfriend – how many overprotective mums do we know who fall into that category – they had the mum rabbiting on about how she used to do all of Mitchell’s washing (rivettint stuff) and then god forbid he turned and went and found himself a girlfriend – now…..and let the drumroll begin…..his girlfriend does his washing!. Stimulating prime time stuff – ACA didn’t even manage to get Mitchell or his girlfriend to respond to this garbage – they used an old interview filmed some time ago which had no bearing at all to the mother’s rants.

    So basically it was a lead story about an overly protective mum who doesn’t like his son’s girlfriend and now doesn’t get to do his washing!!!! – great stuff ACA!!! Another classic from your ever shrinking credibility file!

    Some good news on the credibility front – Insight on SBS returns to our screens next Tuesday night and the following week I believe Q and A returns to our screens on the ABC – thank god for some small mercies!

  29. David Knox July 10, 2009 at 12:38 am -

    It will get much more.

  30. Anna July 10, 2009 at 12:33 am -

    Great figures for MasterChef Australia. I think MasterChef can really get 2 million viewers for its finale.

  31. Andrew B July 9, 2009 at 5:58 pm -

    Should be safe to say 7 has won the week already. 9 is looking like ending up 3rd, but may be close between 9 and 10 for second.

    Next week 10 should be second for sure with nearly 8 hours of Masterchef on.

  32. bob July 9, 2009 at 5:33 pm -

    Gees, dissapointing numbers for TGYH, Ten must be happy with TBYG as its comedy replacement, i think most ep’s TBYG rated better then the TGYH series on 7, and have also had a better demo share.

  33. Andrew D July 9, 2009 at 5:25 pm -

    i think the 7pm project promo is the pilot episode.

  34. Rutzie July 9, 2009 at 4:34 pm -

    Didn’t Andrew Daddo give up his day job for this afternoon. Bad move, bad move indeed. Well done to SBS picking up 13.4% of the share with The Ashes. Also thank god their second channel came in as it’s great being able to switch between the Tour de France and The Ashes.

  35. David Knox July 9, 2009 at 4:22 pm -

    It’s live.

  36. Goonies July 9, 2009 at 4:05 pm -

    Has anyone noticed on the ad for the 7pm Project the tag line that says ‘may contain traces of humour’ !!!!

    Who plugs their new show by saying ‘it might be funny, who knows’ !?

    Also I noticed they were talking about the latest rugby indiscretion on the ad – does this mean it is going to be pre-recorded and weeks out? If so that doesn’t make much sense if you are trying to discuss current affirs.
