    Over fouty five percent for nine on Thursday night! When was the last time a network had such a dominating night?

  5. jacket December 25, 2009 at 11:01 pm -

    @aznfratboy … there have been whispers that SN may be picked up for a season 6. Both the stars of the show are contracted to the CW for another year and the shows creator Eric Kirpke has said in interviews that he would do another seaosn if the CW wanted it…. so fans are awaiting news on a 6th season.

  6. aznfratboy December 24, 2009 at 10:40 pm -

    @ Amir, Supernatural is in it’s 5th and last season Eric Kripke (the guy who writes the story) said from the get go that it would end after 5 seasons.

    @ Ryan Rove won’t lose money, Ten would if they can’t generate enoug advert revenue to cover costs… I don’t get why they don’t air Friends or even The Simpsons repeats in that timeslot? It probably costs like $20k an episode? I’m sure it costs more to produce 7pm project and pay the salaries of the presenters.

    I thought the ratings for last night were a little short LOL

    Marry xMas all and to all a good 2010 TV year!

  12. Goonies December 23, 2009 at 2:30 pm -

    re 7PM Project – Why the hell do they bring up serious subjects and then just make idiotic jokes about everything? Is it supposed to be a current affairs show with intelligent comments etc or is just about who can make the silliest jokes.

    What with that and Carrie’s warped view of the world, I am rapidly losing interest.

    Her comments on the internet filter really took the cake.

  13. David Knox December 23, 2009 at 1:24 pm -

    Please note there will be erratic Ratings data available over the Xmas- New Year period, including changes due to the addition of Timeshifting from Sunday. During its period of transition, let’s wait for the dust to settle….

    Re: 80% Bogan, 20% normal

    one could easily say 80% normal, 20% elitist

    either way, like i say, no matter how good you think a show is, no matter how much critically acclaim it gets, it’s not always going to translate into ratings success. It’s just like mainstream vs. artsy movies.

    Stargate universe may be a great show, but how many people actually like sci-fi shows? 95% of females don’t like sci-fi, thus the lower ratings. Then other factors such as the internet, holidays, recording etc.

    nine Sucks when it comes to keeping to time … i have to kieep my tivo with a 30 min buffer each side of MadTV (ie 2hrs!!!) and it still didnt catch any of it on sat nite — it got bumped completely becuase the earlier movie ran over time, and cut straight to an infomerical program … they suck!!!!! >:P

  16. mike December 23, 2009 at 8:03 am -

    “There may be some bogans but exactly how many are there”

    Too many. You only have to look at Australia Day to work that out.

    In Sydney for example (I lived there for 6 years) the upper/lower North Shore/Paddington/Vaucluse and some inner city areas are reality Bogan free, however if you travel to the Northern Beaches you find them (apart from Palm/Whale beach), the Beach Bogans, very Aussie type of Bogan, Sutherland (same breed), Western Sydney onwards (the mega Bogan – similar to the Norhern Beaches Bogan but worse).

    They are the majority. When a nation bases it’s entire identity and self esteem on sport you can pretty work out the percentages.

    Woo go 30 Rock! :-)

  18. JenC December 22, 2009 at 10:25 pm -

    Totally forgot CSI Miami was on last night. Too busy preparing for Christmas. Hopefully I’ll remember to catch CSI NY as I much prefer that to Miami.

  19. Adam December 22, 2009 at 9:45 pm -

    LOL @Dan

  20. mak December 22, 2009 at 9:32 pm -

    How many people have “ratings” monitors? I’m guessing its a very small percentage of the entire population. These people are screened and categorised by age, sex, income, number of pets and children etc etc.
    From this very small group we miraculously arrive at generalised ratings which everyone believes to be accurate.
    If we believe the “blue eye, brown eye” experiment and follow the laws of probability, then this whole ratings process is a sham.
    There may be some bogans but exactly how many are there???

  21. Rutzie December 22, 2009 at 8:18 pm -

    Wake up Seven and move 30 Rock to an earlier timeslot (Unless you are saving it for 7TWO), because Scrubs was doing about the same numbers in the 10.30pm slot and look what it did it primetime. I’m thinking we won’t see The 7PM Project after it’s Christmas break. The show obviously needs a change of hosts and a name change if it is to have any chance.

  22. 2.5men December 22, 2009 at 6:58 pm -

    another week, another batch of bad 7pm project ratings. If this was a game show, it would’ve been dropped ages ago.

    unless the production isn’t losing money, then it’s more than likely won’t be off air?

    just watching the promo for this show… wow… one minute its shows (supposedly) funny moments, then the next minute its (tries) to be all serious.

    7pm project = today tonight/ACA with (attempted) humor

  23. mike December 22, 2009 at 6:56 pm -

    The pathetic viewing habits of this country continue to astound me. Stargate universe is a great show, yet it drops in ratings. I guess if it is not some friggen crime show, some foul last chance surgery crap, world funniest failed heart transplants, people dying in seconds etc the majority don’t watch it.

    We really are, en masse a bunch of unsophisticated bogans. Whilst the USA has a balance of rednecks and normal people we are more 80% Bogan, 20% normal.

  24. ryan December 22, 2009 at 6:06 pm -

    Fkn Axe The 7pm project! every night for ten is being pulled behind thanks to the s**t house shows ratings, god even malcom in the middle beat it!, if rove has any brains he would force them to resign since he is probably loosing money on every ep

  25. Kenny December 22, 2009 at 4:16 pm -

    Ferguson 32,000 over Overton in Sydney news. Interestingly 9 is narrowing the gap with 7 in Perth.

  26. Stephen H December 22, 2009 at 1:40 pm -

    The problem 10 faces is that they don’t program scripted program at 10:30 or have a proper digital channel so if a show dosen’t rate in Primetime it is a lottery to see if it would ever air after midnight or weekend afternoon. For a network that regularly tries to aim to younger viewers they are very out of touch.

  27. mak December 22, 2009 at 1:16 pm -

    Watched the middle last night (first time). Thought it was very ordinary. Would rather watch repeats of “raymond” where Patricia Heaton was a lot better.
    The small kid performed well. he was fun.

  28. Johnson December 22, 2009 at 1:03 pm -

    Another poor result for Ten last night. Its decision to show Stargate Universe at 8.30pm backfired, losing over 180,000 viewers from last week’s premiere. It was also dragged down by poor ratings from Rules of Engagement, which seems headed to Ten’s new digital channel in 2010.

  29. Amir December 22, 2009 at 12:30 pm -

    Holy sh*t at those 30 Rock ratings! Seven really need to move it to primetime next year (maybe put it with Scrubs?), because those ratings for a repeat are amazing for a 10:30pm show. It’s pretty much on par with all of Ten’s other shows for the night hahaha. Poor Ten. I just hope they don’t give up on Supernatural and drop it for next year…

  30. Brodie December 22, 2009 at 12:16 pm -

    515k for a 30 Rock repeat at 10.30pm during Summer is excellent!

  31. Jed December 22, 2009 at 11:51 am -

    I liked GO! Now i’m starting to hate it as much as Nine because the old Nine tradition is starting to creep in. Is it really so hard to start and finish programs on time. Couldn’t record It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia last night because Dante’s Cove went overtime by like 15 mins, and i had to end up stopping it and just watching the end of it because my disc was only 2 hours long and i recorded Nip/Tuck before it.

    Anyone else noticed Seven H&A promo has a lot less Todd Lasance. I think there’s now only one shot and its of the back of his head.

  32. ryan December 21, 2009 at 11:12 pm -

    i think ten is the only network that shows the real times that shows start and finish, im sick of having to flick back and fourth waiting for the program to start

  33. Dino December 21, 2009 at 4:31 pm -

    The Vicar, Spicks & Specks, Hamish & Andy Special then Castle. Not too bad a summer viewing schedule last night for me, even if the majority of shows mentioned were repeats.

  34. karl decker December 21, 2009 at 4:20 pm -

    when will ten have there second channel they need it

  35. Xav December 21, 2009 at 3:53 pm -

    Sunday was Not kind to ten. I would’ve thought since an earlier repeat of Glee (about a month or so ago) got 800,000 or so, that repeats would get 600-700. Apparently, Glee fever has reached its peak already or no-one wants to see an encore series (like Merlin). I wonder if ten will stick to its Glee-peat marathon next week? In the meantime, I’ll be waiting until it comes back with new episodes next April.

  36. DAN December 21, 2009 at 2:51 pm -

    @timmy it will probaly be on again in a few weeks so you can catch it then LOL

  37. Chris December 21, 2009 at 2:42 pm -

    Still can’t believe the millionth showing of About A Boy (this year) still got 479,000 viewers. Beggars belief.

  38. timmy December 21, 2009 at 2:13 pm -

    Oh noes! I missed About a Boy!
