    Wow excellent to the ABC so many shows in the top 10 :)

  2. TDJ July 19, 2010 at 1:11 am -

    This whole ratings rubbish is getting so idiotic. Since when did 5 or 6 hundred thousand become a small number, and we are not even talking about the whole country, only one city. Now it appears that a million is not good enough either. This is just utterly ridiculous. Why don’t they just cancel 95% of the programs. I am sure that if these idiot networks lost 5 hundred thousand viewers they would not regard that as small. In fact I guarantee they would be crapping themselves. Of course this stupidity has nothing to do with viewers. Regardless of what they want people to think they could not give a toss about viewers. It is all about advertisers, who ironically they are not pleasing anyway. It just shows you how stupid network execs are. It is the old saying, greed makes people stupid and it is very true. One has to ask why on Earth is that Matty John’s crap still on. According to these indicators it should be buried already. The ratings system should be scrapped. It is not relevant anymore with recording, downloads, DVD’s etc. It can not truly ascertain who watches what anymore. It is just used as an excuse to manipulate programs, for the networks interest, not the viewers.

    Awesome to see ABC win Saturday again!

  6. Johnson July 18, 2010 at 1:17 pm -

    Interesting to note that the announcement of the date of federal election did not translate to big ratings for both Seven News and Nine News, nor to Seven’s and Nine’s morning line-ups. Nine News however beat Seven News in Melbourne from Monday to Saturday.

  7. Harry July 18, 2010 at 1:03 pm -

    All networks should play AFL Live! It would rate higher, I never watch delayed games, I listen to the radio or actually go to the game.

  8. Blah Blah July 18, 2010 at 2:47 am -

    @Goonies there’s 21 million in this country at the moment.

  9. Nik C July 17, 2010 at 10:09 pm -

    Wow, Ch 10 had three shows in the top 10 on Friday, and still came third! Well Done. 7pm Project thumped H&A. We shall see if that cintiunes post MC. H&A has not been that low ever, and the storyline is getting juicy…

  10. Rob July 17, 2010 at 6:08 pm -

    To all those criticising the AFL ratings and channel sevens decision to run it on delay, just look at the network figures for friday night… Seven clearly won the night by more than 2% to Nine. Thanks to BH&G and the AFL providing a strong audience hold till 11:30pm because of the 3hr game broadcast, unlike nines NRL coverage where the audience drops off after 2 hours when the second game starts, thus loosing the late night share and loosing the night. Its quite obvious why the AFL can demand more money for tv rights compared to the NRL.

  11. Jarred July 17, 2010 at 5:37 pm -

    @ JB,
    The AFL ratings are low because Seven aren’t playing the games live. They need not introduce another Friday night match, they just need to fix what they have by playing all Friday Night matches live. The idea behind having one Friday night match is the exclusive national viewing audience which would increase with live broadcasts. If anything, the NRL should mimic the AFL because clearly the NRL have more issues including horrible crowd numbers, horrible membership numbers, half the salary cap of AFL, less overall interest and an pathetic governing body.

  12. Ryan July 17, 2010 at 4:25 pm -

    How about this for an idea, one hd shows every grandfinal they have rights to @ 7.30 pm every friday to steal footy viewers from 7 who want to watch footy but their team doesnt play on friday.

  13. Ryan July 17, 2010 at 4:22 pm -

    Numbers needs to go Ten! from just under 1m to under 400,000 is pathetic, plus its just a sh*t show! Use some new eps of another show.
    On another note, good numbers for jamie’s show, it was quite good actually, i wanted to get into that school kitchen and slap that woman! Lets just hope it holds its figures against better homes and gardens in 2 weeks

  14. JB July 17, 2010 at 3:48 pm -

    @Jarred. What are you talking about? I want Friday night footy Live. I just think for the new timeslot 2 Friday night games should be scheduled. Maybe you misinterpreted what i said. I didn’t mean play 2 Friday night matches back to back on tv. But like NRL play 2 games Friday night games, one in Melbourne, one in Adelaide/Perth. With one match shown in each city with Adelaide/Perth obviously getting the local team shown on tv. Example Fremantle v Essendon shown live in Perth, St Kilda v Carlton shown live in Melbourne & Adelaide. Would get big attendence and big tv numbers in total.

    @David. All good. Was just worried you wouldn’t let me get away with calling Dementriou a dimwit.

  15. Jarred July 17, 2010 at 2:52 pm -

    @ JB
    You are completely wrong. The AFL’s idea is absolutely correct, their execution of this idea leaves a lot to be desired. Why? Because Channel 7 rarely broadcast the Friday night match live unlike Channel 9 with the NRL. Last night was different, but the match stated too late anyway so that was a scheduling issue.
    When in Victoria, the Friday Night matche usually starts at 7.40pm in Melbourne and 7.10pm in Adelaide, If Seven broadcast it live, it would finish at 10.30pm in Melbourne and 10pm in Adelaide which is more reasonable and bareable than midnight. People who work on Saturday mornings or young children can then watch it in it’s entirity. This is the big debate in the next broadcast rights deal and Channel 9 pledge to broadcast every Friday Night match live like it should be.

  16. TDJ July 17, 2010 at 2:45 pm -

    Saturday morning and we have Seven and Nine engaged in their infantile over doing of news once again. Yes we really need to see footage of a white car driving along the road and the front of a building that does not move at all. All we actually needed to know was when the election was going to be. That would have taken 30 seconds. But no, we are once again subjected to programs being pulled off air while these idiots wait hours while filling in time with utter rubbish. No doubt the morons that pass for execs in these two networks are frantically trying to get pictures of the white car or building before the other. Oh, whoopee we got meaningless footage before they did. For crap sake somebody sack these morons. Just more abject stupidity like we had with Jessica Watson, who apparently was at fault for not turning up at the exact second for the networks. Why do viewers have to suffer these imbeciles? The irony in all this is that the worst network imaginable, Ten, actually deal with these things more sensibly than Seven and Nine. Ten at least don’t appear to want to be involved in Seven and Nines infantile behaviour.

  17. dave July 17, 2010 at 1:50 pm -

    That has to be the best Friday night rating for 7pm project since it began, Not sure why, same old Fitzy and Denise – the brains trust end of the week! Dr Dimples is always good value. The one year anniversary next week will be celebrated for sure.

  18. David Knox July 17, 2010 at 1:49 pm -

    Eh? I have said no such thing.

  19. JB July 17, 2010 at 1:23 pm -

    I can see you not being happy with me calling the AFL bosses dimwits David. That’s my opinion, i’m sticking to it.

    Seven’s programmers need the sack too. Thursday’s has been a disaster, they schedule repeats for Sunday night, yet put City Homicide on a Wednesday night where it rates poorly and did better on Sundays. They stuffed up the quality HIMYM which could ahve been a hit for them, they have 30 Rock which is Modern Family-esque and could have rated huge for them. And they schedule footy on delay Friday nights when it should be live and could quite easily just move Better Homes & Gardens to Thursday where it would still rate, help lift their nightly figure.

  20. JB July 17, 2010 at 1:14 pm -

    7PM Project #1 in it’s timeslot. Boo yeah!!! Well done 7PM and Ten and thank you for giving me something to watch at 7pm. Now i just need something at 6.30.

    @Johnson, that is exactly why the AFL needs to take the NRL’s lead and play 2 Friday night matches. One in Melbourne, one in Adelaide/Perth. This would get huge ratings because the Melbourne audience will be big, but a Adelaide/Perth audience will be huge with a local game, and increase the total figure. They need a new timeslot for the extra teams, why not just double up the biggest timeslot and get bigger crowds, and bigger tv audiences at the same time. AFL’s run by dimwits though, so won’t happen.

  21. Craig July 17, 2010 at 11:55 am -

    The AFL are dying a slow death in the TV ratings on the other hand the NRL is going up and up. The smart money should be going to the NRL in the next round of TV deals.

  22. Johnson July 17, 2010 at 11:47 am -

    The AFL did very well in Adelaide and (to a lesser degree) Melbourne, as did the NRL in Sydney (the local derby between the Rabbitohs and the Dragons is always popular).

  23. Ryan July 16, 2010 at 10:21 pm -

    Ten should swap lie to me with svu

    The Gruen Transfer Ratings :

    ABC1 Wednesday – 1,341,000
    ABC2 Thursday – 188,000

    Great Ratings for Gruen! I hope there will be more episode in their next Season!

  26. Jarred July 16, 2010 at 6:14 pm -

    @ Goonies
    You need to remember, many people follow AFL but haven’t bought memberships, I admit that I am one of them. Why? Money, time, dedication, travel constraints, location etc… That figure of 614,000 is purely members which, compared to other sports around our country, is quite dominating. 614,000 across 16 clubs averages to 38,375 people per club. Think of this as an approximate attendance per game figure (realistically it would be higher), this is a fantastic figure compared to many other sports in Australia. Take the NRL for example which at the start of the season didn’t even have 100,000 members and 10,000 members per club was apparently a record number for Dragons and Rabbitohs, thats laughable.

  27. Goonies July 16, 2010 at 5:35 pm -

    @ TDJ – and maybe some poeple couldn’t care less if it is ‘rigged’ and just watch for entertainment purposes. No one is ‘stealing’ anything, if someone feels like spending their money on a phone vote then so be it.

    Enlighten us all with the quality shows you watch on a weekly basis so we can see if the same baseless accusations can be levelled at you.

    PS – learn how to type in paragraphs would ya!!!

  28. TDJ July 16, 2010 at 4:48 pm -

    You really have to wonder about some people. Watching rigged rubbish like Master Chef and being played for fools is one thing, but what about the fools that watch Dancing with the Scams. Do these fools actually think that these melt downs and dummy spits by judges are not scripted. Then of course you have the catch. If you don’t want so and so to get knocked out or teach what’s his name a lesson then make sure you “Vote”. Yes we want to steal more money from gullible fools over the phone. The Government should try charging these clowns entry into the polling booth, seeing that don’t question being charged by TV networks to do Them a favour. Really makes you wonder about the society we live in. It is no wonder criminals find it so easy to steal from Australians. They are just so freaking gullible.

  29. Ryan July 16, 2010 at 3:49 pm -

    mc up over 700,000 on last yrs thur ep week before finale week. Also neighbours hits 1m!! Glee starts after masterchef finale and only gets 1.2m!

    @ 2.5men – So did the play 4 or 6 pes of big bang? your sentence does not quite make sense.

    I find something a little weird when we have 20 million people in the country and not even 1 mill are members of AFL clubs. (see Jarad’s post)

    Why the heck are we subjected to so much endless , mindless football dross then!!?

  31. 2.5 men July 16, 2010 at 1:10 pm -

    they show 6 episodes of the Big Bang. Originally I believe it was 4 then the movie Snakes on a Plane, but i guess a last minute change happened. Kind of disappointed Snakes was shown :(

    How many eps of TBBT did GO! show last night? Was nice to catch the pilot again.

    I think 715,000 is a new season low for Getaway. Will it drop below 700,000 next week?

  34. Jarred July 16, 2010 at 11:44 am -

    Sorry to revive an old debate but I found it interesting to note that their are record membership numbers for the AFL this year with around 614,000 people across 16 clubs, this will rise in the next 2 years with the introduction of the 2 new clubs. For those who question the billion dollar broadcast rights deal this will interest you, to quote the AFL CEO:
    “the AFL’s single most important indicator of the game’s health remains attendances at our matches and the commitment of our supporters to become a member of one of our clubs.”
    So TV ratings isn’t the number one priority which is what I implied some weeks ago now. You need to make more of an effort to actually attend the match than watch it on TV which means more commitement to our Great Australian Game.

    @Jarred
    I think it the First half l think when Red Faces are on (8.30pm)

    l think they are trying to cut down to 1 hour. 1.306 million is 4th or 5th spot on Wednesday & 2nd spot Saturday. Maybe a new set next week.

    @TDJ: Yep. The networks are a disgrace. As are Telstra. Fortunately they’re so stupid that they are totally blind to the future which is pretty much already here.

    I really enjoyed Poh’s Kitchen last night

    It doesn’t belong in that early time slot. I think it would rate moderately better at a later time slot. Say 9pm, 9.30

    Yep this season has definitely shown that Masterchef is flawed. I was surprised yesterday when Matt Preston said which of the contestants will be in the final to become “Australia’s best amateur cook”. Umm the best was Marion, so shouldn’t it be the one lucky enough to win it?? Not the best cook anymore!! That’s the flaw. Contestants that consistantly cook great food, win challenges, beat celebrity chefs are gone, yet Jimmy who i can’t think of a meal he cooked that wasn’t curry, and has yet to have one dish as a stand out is through to the final week. And i love Callum, but he’s stuffed up in major challenges in a row, and scrapes through because his team wins. They need to offer rewards to those who win challenges.

    I’ve completely lost interest in the show because the best have gone. It’s not a whinge that my favourite is gone, it’s the circumstances and the flaws in the show. Not to mention the 2 worst Jimmy & Aaron were saved the week before when they should have just sent them both home.

    Oh ‘Hey Hey”ll be back…Daryl threatened…..er…I mean said so a few weeks ago on the show during one of his ‘Don’t listen to the lies the media are spreading’ rants. Only funny moment so far this year.

    Thinks Ten should poach Will Anderson and give him an entertainment/variety/discussion show in prime time.

  41. Elizabeth July 15, 2010 at 5:45 pm -

    Good to see ABC win in the 8.30 last night. S&S and Gruen are great shows!!

    CH returned & was 3rd behind, Lie to Me. Hey, Hey fourth…Hmm..I wonder when Farmer wants a Wife returns if there will be any moves up the ratings ladder for 9?? Just as well Origin helped them last week in that time slot :)

  42. aznfratboy July 15, 2010 at 4:56 pm -

    ROFL @ Hey Hey, getting less than 7pm failure.

  43. Jarred July 15, 2010 at 4:04 pm -

    @ Tom,
    Do you know what time that was at?
    I suspect it would be in the first half.

  44. Harry July 15, 2010 at 3:58 pm -

    Look at the decrease from MC to Lie To Me – From 2.192 million to 946,000! Wow. I do think MC is a little rigged this year – Callum didnt plate up all his dishes – come on MC!

  45. DAN July 15, 2010 at 3:36 pm -

    i dont think master chef is rigged but i do wonder if it is really a blind tasting or do the judges know which dish is the chef and which dish is the contestant in the challanges i really hope Alvin is eliminated in tonight i dont want him to win i want eathier callum or Aaron to take it out

  46. Steve July 15, 2010 at 3:01 pm -

    @MrCookiepants
    Totally agree. Same sort of rubbish when Marion made it through a few challenges. “Rigged” was the call. But then she was eliminated.
    People forget that MC is a competition. What tastes the best is always going to be subjective, more so when there are external judges like last night.

  47. Tom July 15, 2010 at 2:59 pm -

    Hey Hey it’s Saturday peaked at 1.306 million

  48. TDJ July 15, 2010 at 2:51 pm -

    Not that ratings are worth crap anyway. They do not show the true interest in any program especially when they can be recorded and watched later. However, Hey Hey picked up it’s ratings this week after “Nines” incompetence last week cost it ratings. As usual Nine blames the program and not themselves. Of course in another example of the Nine networks incompetence and contempt for viewers. Fans of the Sarah Conner Chronicles, who were first lied to about the end of season episodes on a Wednesday on GO!. Were then surprised by the last three episodes of season two stuck late on a Saturday. Two episodes were shown back to back at I think it was 10:30. The following Saturday however the very last episode was ridiculously shoved on at 1:30 in the morning. These useless morons could not show the single last episode at a decent time. This is exactly the type of contemptible crap that viewers are sick to death of from these imbecile networks. What a stuff up with The Morning Show on Seven. Two men about to discuss the possible extinction of life as we know it and they are rudely cut off mid sentence for some idiot crapping on about football. Wow they are useless, overpaid corrupt morons. Gee that’s news. So football is more important than the end of life. Maybe we really deserve to be hit by an asteroid if we have such a warped sense of priorities.

    Channel 7 you have stuffed City Homicide up. It was 2 great episodes last night but you should have left it either on a sunday or monday night. Hey Hey still doesn’t do that great, interesting to see what numbers Kylie pulls next week, I reckon people will tune in to see what she says about her new nephew.

    Worlds strictest parents was funny in some parts last night. If I lived with that family I would have behaved myself as well. It will be good when australian episodes are on.

  50. Craig July 15, 2010 at 2:38 pm -

    Nine 3rd for the night not helped with Hey Hey getting just 851k, I don’t see it coming back later in the year.

  51. MrCookiepants July 15, 2010 at 2:35 pm -

    @ bigkev

    Why would they rig it to allow Callum into the finals? Both Alvin and Aaron are far more popular contestants than him. It was just a matter of fact he put up one of the best dishes, complete or not.
