    TEN truly earned that 12%. Perhaps next time they could consider what Australians outside Melbourne might like to watch.

  2. Mark August 22, 2010 at 3:14 pm -

    9 was a joke at election. they had like 10 people on the desk at one point and the screen was cluttered with graphics. There were slow and not updated as ABC and 7.

    i stayed on 7 and ABC like a many normal people

  3. Jerome August 22, 2010 at 12:57 pm -

    i watched 9’s coverage for about 2 hours. there were lots of technical glitches and the graphics were very big. i do like some heated arguments but a lot of the time they were out of control and getting carried away which was not good viewing for an extended time. especially when live cross after live cross had 9 panelists talking over each other to one man in a crowd with only an earpiece.

    then i switched between 7&24 for the rest. seemed to be in control and was runing smoothly but there was some awkward silences early on, on 7. ABC went for a very simple format which i think was the most sucessful.

  4. catherine August 22, 2010 at 11:36 am -

    I watched the election project for a bit of a laugh then flicked between 7 and 2. I was on 9 at one stage but all they did was talk over each other, yell at each other and no one could get a word in. Also I thought the interview with Wayne Swan was very disrespectful. Also there were times there when Karl had no idea what was going on and had to get Laurie to explain everything. Ch9 may as well been the Liberal Party fan club.

    I actually didnt mind the 7 team they had on. Alexander Downer was pretty good and I also like Mark Riley. But I guess everyone watched Kerry.

  5. ducko August 22, 2010 at 11:26 am -

    The Election Project – why did they bother?

  6. JB August 22, 2010 at 11:26 am -

    Not at all suprised ABC won the election ratings. I watched mostly ABC and it was good coverage. Flicked to all the others as well. SBS was dull, boring, just 4 people sitting at a desk and i could hear crickets chirpping. Seven just like their promos was unprofessional and childish. Kochie, Bathy, Richo, it’s a Federal election, not an under 15’s footy team. Nine actually wasn’t too bad, but Karl is just woeful on anything. ABC the clear winner.

  7. Adam August 21, 2010 at 2:14 pm -

    Cam I’m guessing its because BH & G gets about same ratings as NRL in Sydney and so ch7 can be neutral in that market n get a massive win in Melbourne… more than 1 in 3 people are watching ch7 fri nights

  8. Cam Reed August 21, 2010 at 1:53 pm -

    Come on TEN put Numbers back on Friday, SVU Ratings wise didn’t do much better, so why not finish Numbers out, 12 Episodes to go and it is no more, please let us watch it to it’s end.

  9. Joe August 21, 2010 at 1:53 pm -

    Better homes and gardens 345000 in Melbourne Friday night football 456000 in Melbourne. Channel 7 do the math. Show live Friday night football and move better homes and gardens to sat night. Adelaide should also have live fnf but home and away would also have to be moved

  10. Adam August 21, 2010 at 1:52 pm -

    wow massive win by Seven last night
    7PM project is ch10s highest rating show often and I’m stoked that it has consolidated its position.
    Shattered that SelecTV has gone under because I had plans to swap over to them. I only want movie channels and discovery channels – Damn Foxtel! Hope a new player steps in

  11. Johnson August 21, 2010 at 12:14 pm -

    Big win by Seven last night due to Better Homes and Gardens, AFL in Melbourne and Adelaide, and the second last ever episode of A Touch of Frost in Sydney and Brisbane. I was surprised by lower ratings for the finale of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on Ten though. If Nine is to win the week, it will need a very good performance by its election coverage tonight.

  12. JB August 21, 2010 at 10:57 am -

    See i like the NRL Footy Show, great mix of discussion, and entertainment. Wish they’d get rid of Mario though.
    And i like the Matty Johns Show. Controversy Corner i think could go on a bit longer but they argue the issues of the day. And Don Kirk segment is the best on the show. Love Don Kirk.

    Rush was a good ep, the ads really made it think it was an Australian PM being targeted. But wouldn’t the Australian Federal Police take a matter such as that? Being in charge of protecting a foreign leader? Tactical Response, responds to events.

  13. Allie August 20, 2010 at 6:30 pm -

    I watched the Matty Johns Show for the first time in several weeks last night. Dear God, it is as rough as. It needs a Lot of work if it is to come back next season. There is nowhere near enough football analysis on the show and the skits are very weak. They need a strong team of skit writers and some of the characters need to be dropped – the Don Burke spoof, Don Kirk, has to go. The Smarter than a Footballer segment has tanked every time I’ve seen it – get rid of it. I can take or leave Anh Do, I don’t find him particularly amusing. Chloe Maxwell is very likable and natural but her slot is not long enough. Matty himself is great, a very likable screen presence, but the show just does not gel at all. It needs a complete overhaul, and I mean scrap the current format and start all over again from scratch.

    @ messy – It seems you’re just looking for trouble when there isn’t any. I wasn’t ranting on for two full paragraphs about one thing, it was about two very different topics, hence the separate paragraphs. And believe what you want, but I honestly didn’t know what you were referring to. In fact, judging by Eye Spy’s comment, someone could think you were talking about another entirely unrelated comment I posted.

  15. ryan August 20, 2010 at 4:12 pm -

    @ harry: i actually thought last nights ep of rush was brilliant. Also great ep of burn notice last night.

  16. Harry August 20, 2010 at 3:56 pm -

    Glad that Rush won its timeslot. Wasnt my favourite episode last night but great that it won its timeslot.

  17. chk chk August 20, 2010 at 1:02 pm -

    Looks like Go! really is becoming the most watched fifth channel.

  18. koverstreet August 20, 2010 at 10:46 am -

    Getaway was great last night and deserves those numbers. It always seems to pick up in winter. Not sure about Delta doing a story on grunge though! The Mentalist rpts still doing ok and I still watch them but looking forward to Cops LAC.

  19. Nik C August 20, 2010 at 10:43 am -

    Hooray Rush won its timeslot and had over a million :)

  20. catherine August 20, 2010 at 10:00 am -

    so today win sydney but sunrise wins in melbourne by 18,000 viewers.

    The NRL footy show is lucky David Gyngell loves the show because if any other show got 128,000 viewersor around that mark every week it would be dropped.

    I came acroos Bill hestons show last night. Obviously I saw him on MC but he is amazing what he does with food. His chocolate fountain was amazing and so is what he did with the duck.
