    @herome. no i am not. it started at 2 million and it’s losing numbers. it lost 2ook from the last weeks. look at the figures first champ

  2. messy September 29, 2010 at 5:12 pm -

    Top Gear Australia….what a load of rubbish.
    No wonder it was canned on SBS.

  3. Jerome September 29, 2010 at 4:25 pm -

    Mr. chandler. no it hasn’t, it’s actually done quite the opposite in the last few week, you made that up. it’s just this week it as obviously hit hard by top gear.

  4. Mr. chandler September 29, 2010 at 3:02 pm -

    packed to the rafters is losing number in bunches every week.

  5. ryan September 29, 2010 at 2:43 pm -

    tbyg needs bigger stars on as guests, just grabbing all the d grade performers in aus is not good and boring, we should be able to see our favourite stars on it trying to play the games which would be great

  6. Ben September 29, 2010 at 11:33 am -

    chk chk – blurring is straight from CBS in the U.S.

  7. Amy September 29, 2010 at 11:33 am -

    @ chk chk – agree but I don’t think it was Nine that blurred out the images – probably CBS. Shannon was hot….shame we won’t see him anymore.

    @ JB – agree with you – Scott McGregor is hot and he needs to be on TV doing something….please

  8. Rutzie September 29, 2010 at 11:13 am -

    I think it’s about time Nine stopped running their ‘Thanks for waking up with Today’ promos because quite clearly people ain’t.

  9. Secret Squïrrel September 29, 2010 at 10:50 am -

    TGA did do rather well and I thought it was good. The figures prob represent a peak, it being the first show and featuring the “battle for The Ashes” but Nine would have to be happy. Have to assume that they drew some viewers away from TBYG which is a shame.

    Wouldn’t have thought that there’d be much intersection between PTTR and TGA viewers. Is it school hols elsewhere? (is here in WA).

    @Phoenix – “flashbacks=salt” – that is so true

  10. chk chk September 29, 2010 at 10:25 am -

    Too bad Survivor wasn’t able to maintain the numbers of TGA but great eps last night… the Young tribe were all hotties, it’s a shame that Shannon has to leave last night, I reckon he’s the hottest of the bunch! I wonder why Nine would blur the image of the guys in their undies, wasn’t the rating M for Suirvivors??

  11. koverstreet September 29, 2010 at 10:11 am -

    TG did better then I expected. It also looks like PTTR got it’s lowest number ever?

    Shame that TBYG took a hit though it’s was another cracker episode..worth watching just for Kimberly Davies!

  12. Ben September 29, 2010 at 10:03 am -

    Acceptable ratings for Survivor, especially since the very Very long Top Gear ran overtime.

  13. JB September 29, 2010 at 10:02 am -

    Man Your Gen took a big hit last night. Shame. Scott McGregor needs to be seen more on tv. Bring back Price is Right just so we can see him shirtless.

    Rafters is dipping lately too. I haven’t found myself too interested the last couple of weeks.

  14. Amy September 29, 2010 at 9:56 am -

    Thanks Nine for screening Survivor! Loved It!!

    Shannon was so Hot!! I reckon he is one of the hottest guys Survivor has ever had. His rants were a bit homophobic, but he was still Hot!!

  15. Daniel P September 29, 2010 at 9:47 am -

    I was trying to love Top Gear Australia, but it just wasn’t working, none of the hosts are as entertaining as the UK ones (even thopugh they were featured in the ashes special), maybe replace two with Shane Crawford and Beau Walker and it might work.

  16. Allie September 29, 2010 at 8:26 am -

    @ Craig – Ten were advertising Monday night’s Undercover Boss as being virtually hot off the satellite, so I’d say it had only screened in the US hours before it was shown here. It was a reaqlly good episode. The boss was the most generous boss I’ve seen on the show so far, he actually did constructive things like awarding a uni scholarship to the janitor’s son, fast-tracked training for several other staff with promotions, etc. A very nice bloke who really seemed to understand how to best reward good staff. I love UC, it really is a very good show for the much maligned reality genre.

  17. ryan September 29, 2010 at 3:17 am -

    I wonder if ten is planning to bring their channel forward, they have started to promo 11 3 months away from when they say it was gonna start. Thats a bloody long time to promote something

  18. David Knox September 28, 2010 at 11:11 pm -

    Eye Spy… yes I reported it this morning.

  19. Eye Spy September 28, 2010 at 11:07 pm -

    Pretty respectable figures for Media Watch which is a good thing. Last night they exposed a Ch 7 show that purportedly claimed how easy it would be to bomb the Delhi games. The report showed how fraudulently it had been set up. The Indians who had been duped are seeking legal advice and I hope they sue the socks off 7! Disgraceful sensationalism at its worst. Didn’t see the original 7 show. Probably the woeful TDT.
    As for the new channels. Yawwwwwwwwn! I won’t even bother to rescan the TV.

  20. JB September 28, 2010 at 11:07 pm -

    Not only did Seven make the stupid and wrong decision to pick Grant Denyer as host of Iron Chef Australia which means i won’t be watching, but now they’re advertising ordinary peopel taking on the Iron Chefs. It’s meant to be professional chefs challenging the absolute best chefs (Iron Chef) int heir cuisine.

  21. Phoenix September 28, 2010 at 9:45 pm -

    @Secret Squirrel — I agree that all the flashbacks in The Event were disconcerting. Apparently, from what I’ve read on US sites, the flashbacks are reduced over the coming episodes, thus improving the flow of the story.

    Some TV writers need to realise that flashbacks are like salt: a little adds zing but too much makes the story unpalatable.

  22. Donald September 28, 2010 at 7:28 pm -

    @Stew, thanks for pointing that out. I just record everything (click on program on EPG, add some padding, done), so not all that aware of subtle time changes (though I do try to watch F1 live where possible). Starting a few hours later would certainly explain the drop in numbers.

    Now, will be interesting to see what numbers F1 gets when Webber gets into a position of being able to clinch the championship. :-)

  23. Karebear September 28, 2010 at 6:46 pm -

    @Ryan Seven always take AllSaints off during the school holidays. Hopefully it’ll be back next week when kids go back to school.

  24. David Knox September 28, 2010 at 3:29 pm -

    Jarred daily ratings is always Preliminary, so it isn’t up to me to get editorial on show titles and / or errors. I ran the info on Footy Classified airing yesterday. We should always look to the Weekly Top 100 for a better reflection of what went on.

  25. Jarred September 28, 2010 at 3:22 pm -

    David, Footy Classified replaced CSI:NY for this week only because of the GF replay and I watched it last night as well so it was definetely on. You may need to re-name what you posted above to Footy Classified.

    Not the greatest of figures for GNW, it is usually up around the 900k-1mil mark but this week it dropped dramatically even though the guests were reasonable and well known.

  26. ryan September 28, 2010 at 2:12 pm -

    Seven please put allsaints back on during the week! surley it rates better than some kids show, if not channel 7 then put it on 72 @ 2pm:)

  27. Harry September 28, 2010 at 1:57 pm -

    Saw The Event last night, horrible show. Great effects, but the plot was too confusing!

  28. Secret Squïrrel September 28, 2010 at 12:04 pm -

    The Event was good but not great. I generally like plot-driven shows with complex story-lines but I felt that all the jumping back and forth in the timeline was a bit over done and unnecessary. It seemed to interrupt the flow rather than inform. I think it’ll struggle to remain above a million next week.

    @Peter A – there were a lot of ad breaks which was quite intrusive. And, of course, it started late, so I was forced to sit thru the last bit of that program that I’m not supposed to waste my time saying is horrible, but is.

  29. Craig September 28, 2010 at 12:01 pm -

    I thought The Event would have done better last night with just over 1 million.

    Undercover Boss – which season was on last night? I noticed it was finally in 16:9 but the 2nd season has only just launched in the US, did we get it just a few hours after them?

  30. Mr. chandler September 28, 2010 at 11:15 am -

    @koverstreet . i am pretty sure it reached 1.4 on ly once. that was when it was leading into packed to the rafters

  31. koverstreet September 28, 2010 at 11:00 am -

    @ mr Chandler – wasn’t it getting around 1.3-1.4m at one stage? 1.1m is very poor for the amount of money spent and what would have been expected of it.

  32. Peter A September 28, 2010 at 10:48 am -

    Watched the Event last night. Not bad, it reminds me a bit of a few other shows, but it should be interesting moving forward. The only thing i found was the amount of ads. It seemed more than usual. I sure it wasn’t but it keep breaking the flow of the show. I hope it continues to rate ok.

    @ptra. stop living in a fantasy world where everyone says great things about everything. if you don’t like people opinion on show. you can always go to another site

  34. Ptra September 28, 2010 at 10:06 am -

    To all the haters who dont like X Factor, and haters in general – if you dont like the show then dont watch it and i dont get why people take time out of their lives (making an assumption here) to negatively put down these shows? Personally i think the show has great production value and the varying talents there is from different styles..
    So yeah…suck it in

  35. Jerome September 28, 2010 at 10:04 am -

    i thought the event was great but those ratings just go to show that a flashforward type promotion is needed if people were going to watch it. althouh itwas let dowalotby melbourne.

  36. Jenny September 28, 2010 at 9:53 am -

    I agree, Allie. Enough of the jealous tantrums, Seven. Grow up.

  37. Mr. chandler September 28, 2010 at 9:40 am -

    a bit surprised x factor got to that number. but 2 weeks ago it was 1.2 million

  38. Allie September 28, 2010 at 7:20 am -

    Another day, another Today Tonight story attacking MasterChef. Last night they did it again, with lots of hand wringing and tut-tutting over the amount of butter and oil being used on Junior MasterChef. Oh, puh-lease! Hasn’t this old chestnut been done to death already? Once more, for the dummies – it is not MasterChef’s brief to train the broader Australian community on nutrition and diet issues. There is already a prime time show that does that, it’s called The Biggest Loser. MC is there to challenge chef wanna be’s and train them in gourmet cooking methods. None of the contestants are there because it is their life’s ambition to open a Sumo Salad franchise; they want to be head chefs of fine dining establishments.

    Fats like butter and various cooking oils are part of the fine dining experience, there is no getting around that. As for the assertion that it is teaching kids to only prepare high fat meals, oh, come on! It costs lots of $$$$$ most of us don’t have to eat like that every night of the week, All of us understand this kind of thing is special occasion dining, it is not meant to reflect the sort of food one eats every day. Pure sour grapes, Seven, nothing more. I assume after TT’s story last night that on Seven’s upcoming cooking shows, Iron Chef and My Kitchen Rules, no butter will be used at all, nor will there be over use of cooking oils? Like hell there won’t be. The hypocrisy is just so staggering.

  39. stew September 27, 2010 at 8:20 pm -

    Donald,
    Saturdays Formula 1 Qualifying was on at midnight, not 10pm like usual, so ratings would not have been that high.

  40. CK September 27, 2010 at 7:55 pm -

    @ryan – totally agree – looked awesome, looking forward to when it starts next yr!
    also enjoying 7mate!!

  41. ryan September 27, 2010 at 6:21 pm -

    Who else noticed the promo for channel 11 last night?? It was a great promo and there were shows shown that i didn’t know were on there. The site is eleven.com.au if you wanna check it out

  42. Donald September 27, 2010 at 5:58 pm -

    re daily figures only include primetime. Wow! Did not know that. Strange that they do that when top 100 includes all timeslots…

    This puts a new spin on One’s figures. You could’ve presumed that people weren’t watching U.S. sport, but turns out U.S. sport isn’t even being factored into the daily figure! Maybe Ambrose does have a following after all, but that we just haven’t seen it in the daily figures. Admittedly NAScar doesn’t crack top 100, but still, the daily figure could be healthier than previously thought given it only includes primetime.

    So One almost beat Go for the first time, and it turns out daytime slots don’t even count towards that figure! Wonder what the real (i.e. 24-hour) One daily figure is like? Obviously would be a lot better than primetime-only figure, with all that extra live sport now being counted also…

  43. Donald September 27, 2010 at 5:41 pm -

    David, can you confirm this week’s F1 qualifying failed to make top 100 on Sat, or was it just an omission on your behalf? Normally you list qualifying, but it wasn’t there this time. Since we just had the 2nd-highest rating F1 race of the year on One (Aussie GP highest), it would be very strange if almost no-one watched the quali – not impossible, but ceratinly very strange that race and quali went opposite directions in their numbers?? (though maybe people were all sported out after the AFL during the day on Sat)

    Thanks. :-)

  44. Mr. chandler September 27, 2010 at 5:36 pm -

    @todd. xfdactor keeps dropping every sunday. i wouldn’t be laughing to hard at junior master chef. it won’t be to long before dud faxtor is below the 1 million mark on sundays

  45. Tasmanian de√il September 27, 2010 at 5:03 pm -

    @ Todd – Be realistic, there’s nothing laughable about Junior Masterchef’s figures. It’s the No. 1 show of the day, I really don’t think Ten would be worried with that.

    The Middle definitely has a loyal following, judging from its figures the same every week. GO would be stupid to pull it because it’s easy to see that its viewers are loyal fans, not just tuning in because there’s nothing else they want to watch.

  46. Theresa Gehm September 27, 2010 at 4:41 pm -

    Who’s looking forward to The Event tonight?

    Im predicting 1.4 million for the premiere. What do you guys think?

  47. ryan September 27, 2010 at 4:00 pm -

    Ten really need to fast track, Merlin, ncis,ncis l.a, and s.v.u which have all started their new seasons in america

  48. IRT September 27, 2010 at 3:38 pm -

    Confirmed – from December 2009: “TEN wins the year in daytime; TEN News At Five is the year’s top regular daytime program”

  49. Tony Bee September 27, 2010 at 3:35 pm -

    I think part of the problem for JMC is that it lacks the tension of the adult version as you know the judges aren’t going to rip into the contestants. Also, I suspect the kids have been given advance notice for many of the meals so they have time to practice and prepare (“You will need to prepare a chicken meal,” for example).

  50. IRT September 27, 2010 at 3:19 pm -

    Ratings are recorded 24 hours per day. They are usually split into “daytime” and primetime”. Except on rare occasions the number watching during the day is quite small. I believe that Ch 10 usually wins daytime. I remember seeing end-of-year results that show when including daytime 10′s ratings went up by only 1 percent or so over primetime only. I don’t know why the concentration is on just the night time ratings except that that is where the money is.

    I think that having primetime from 6pm – 12pm does not reflect viewing habits. It should be 5 -11. There are far more people watching at 5pm than 11 – so by definition it is a “prime” time.

    The Melbourne cup broadcast is a another recognised example of the ratings not reflecting how many are viewing in venues. ONE is also seen in a lot of pubs etc.

  51. ryan September 27, 2010 at 2:50 pm -

    It’s a long wknd here in perth, don’t know bout the rest of you guys but that would have brought down the figures.

  52. ozgeek September 27, 2010 at 2:13 pm -

    Anyone else think JMC should be re-named Greek Masterchef? George had way too much influence on the shortlisting. Oh and note to channel 10: don’t show snippets from the next episode containing kids who have yet to be selected in the current episode. Sort of kills the suspense. Heard at our house: “Looks like Lucy made it.”

  53. messy September 27, 2010 at 1:56 pm -

    So there are only 6 hours in a day (accordng to OZTAM).

    It is assumed that the people who count towards the ratings figures (the chosen few) can speak for the rest of us.

    I love F1 and watched ONE HD last night but how can you conclude that more people have purchased HD set top boxes just because the ratings went up……”Good numbers for F1, it just proves that the majority of fans now have a HD set top box to watch it live, ”

    Why not use the entire 24 hours in a day for rating purposes.
    Why use the theory of probability to compile the ratings when technology is available right now to include everyone.

    Major televised events are still an issue where large crowds have gathered to watch. How should these be handled and included?

    Lots of isues and questions.
    There has to be a better way. If there is a buck to be made (and there is) from these systems and sites then things will probably not change.

  54. Daniel September 27, 2010 at 1:08 pm -

    JMC is like a souffle that hasn’t been served within 30 seconds. It has puffed into a pudding with a hole in the middle. I suggested last week it won’t do any better and I was right. I mean the ending had some samples for what is to come and Donna Hay was in there! And it looked like her chocolate layer cake with gancahe on top!

  55. JB September 27, 2010 at 12:36 pm -

    And why are people watching X-Factor. The performers are terrible was unfortunate to hear it as my mum was watching it, it’s just not good singing. Here’s an idea about some original songs. Singing Justin Beiber songs on a national singing contest, really?? Maybe if they had performers who could sing and singing original music people might watch because it would actually be talent.

  56. JB September 27, 2010 at 12:33 pm -

    Seven, Nine, Ten, 7Two, GO, 7mate, GEM, and still all we get are bloody repeats of Bones, Castle, Modern Family, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Lie To Me, 2.5 Men. I love most of these shows (with the exception of 2.5 Men) but sorry this many channels to choose from, repeats are not good enough. Leave the repeats of old shows for the new digital channels if you must along with first run episodes of shows that aren’t shown on main channels. But the main channels need new content. TV really does suck these days and that’s despite so many great shows and all these different channels. The networks with repeats, bad programming including timeslot choices, and constant overruns have killed tv. I end up going to bed at 8.30/9.30 and watching a dvd and only recording a show i really have to watch. Pull your head in networks.

  57. Daniel P September 27, 2010 at 12:23 pm -

    the only show on GEM i watch is Wife Swap and Ellen, great figures for Top Gear on Go!

  58. Jerome September 27, 2010 at 12:22 pm -

    RichoTB, yeah the X factor has some duds but i really enojyed some of the others last night, Mahogs were great. and NatG over on Xtra factor is really funny and is a real talent, where has she been hiding all these years? The bitching between the judges is really working too, especailly that bit after Mitchels. i got some good belly laughs.

    the ratings aren’t too good, but it is holding onto the viewers it does have unike Junior Masterchef. and is doing up to 200k more than idol in its final season.

  59. Jarred September 27, 2010 at 12:09 pm -

    Well case in point, Saturdays daily share figures are meaningless because the AFL (or NRL because that was broadcast in the day right?) isn’t included in these figures. Channel 7 had 6 of the top ten shows with 4 of these over 2 mil (even though that figure would realistically be higher) so on this occasion (and many others unfortunately), the OZTAM system fails miserably.

  60. Allie September 27, 2010 at 11:41 am -

    I think it is pretty clear that The X Factor has bottomed out at approx. 1M viewers. I doubt whether it will get much higher viewership than that, the interest simply isn’t there. Worrying drop in viewers for JMC. I’ve got to say, I prefer the adult version, I’m not really getting into the kiddie version at all.

  61. David Knox September 27, 2010 at 11:31 am -

    Daily ratings share is based on 6pm-midnight programming.

  62. Jake September 27, 2010 at 11:30 am -

    I’m shocked GEM is matching 7mate! 7mate has much better (and some new) programs unlike most of GEM

  63. Jono September 27, 2010 at 11:29 am -

    Is it only me, or are Miss Imbruglia’s lips getting bigger every week?

  64. Craig September 27, 2010 at 11:28 am -

    Good numbers for F1, it just proves that the majority of fans now have a HD set top box to watch it live, now if only they could show the qualifying live as well, most of the season it was delay because of the Footy.

  65. thesportsfreak September 27, 2010 at 11:15 am -

    Wow! 368k for F1′s is pretty darn good. Combined with the replay on Ten, they’d be stoked with that.

  66. redbullboy September 27, 2010 at 11:13 am -

    Offspring was hilarious last night – Kat Stewart is really a standout for me. Best episode of the series so far.

  67. Jarred September 27, 2010 at 11:07 am -

    Shame Offspring couldn’t get 1mil because it was a fantastic episode last night. The cast is great and they portray their characters really well, not too mention that it is really funny as well. They might not be comedians but they sure know how to act funny.

    Also, David, can you confirm whether or not the network shares are based on shows played during primetime ie from 6pm?

  68. Ronnie September 27, 2010 at 11:01 am -

    I am amazed that Michael Healy bothers putting US movies on Sunday night – hasn’t the message on this been loud and clear for years now? Surely the takeaway message from this year is that Australian drama can win Sunday night (Underbelly, Offspring) – but you’ve got to offer a range of series – not the cookie cut thing that happens at Seven (CH) and Nine (RSO,SP,LAC). The audiences for these series (where every episode is essentially the same) has utterly evaporated over the past two years – and they are not coming back.

  69. Jerome September 27, 2010 at 10:44 am -

    @chk chk. school holidays usually mean ratings are down across the board on Sundays which happened last night.

    Bones and especially Castle are doing very well. 533,000 for a repeat at arond 11:00 is amazing. after the expensive Sunday Night and X factor, it was the cheap little late night crime reruns that gave 7 that lead.

  70. RichoTB September 27, 2010 at 10:40 am -

    X Factor really isn’t that bad..concept may be a little dated, but so was Big Brother half a decade after its inception.

    They have a few good performers there..and quite a few duds as well. But I can see why viewership is low, its a bit too hit and miss. Judges are entertaining though

  71. Daniel September 27, 2010 at 10:33 am -

    It wouldnt be too bad an idea to run the F1 live on Ten IMO, right after offspring. A good lead in, and even though a total shift in target demographic, it would most likely still hold. Got to remember F1 still isnt shot in HD, and wont be till 2012, even though rumors suggests 2011 now.

  72. Peter September 27, 2010 at 10:24 am -

    It was interesting to see the tease for 11 last night after Modern Family. Looks good.

  73. den September 27, 2010 at 10:22 am -

    Junior MC keeps dropping, that’s not a good sign but they don’t seem to be moving to the XFactor or 60 minutes. But the ABC show seems to be growing in viewers.

  74. chk chk September 27, 2010 at 10:05 am -

    whoa, what’s happened, such low figures across all channels?? JMC has pretty much lost 25% of its pilot ep, not good. It started as a souffle but looks like it will end as a pudding.

  75. Daniel September 27, 2010 at 10:05 am -

    Seems like Junior Masterchef continues to slip, got to wonder will it continue with ratings slipping after the 3 week break for the Commonwealth Games?

    Also sensational numbers for the F1, top 30!

  76. googly eyes September 27, 2010 at 10:03 am -

    Another ouch for X Factor.

  77. Ptra September 27, 2010 at 9:59 am -

    I went to see the X Factor Live on Sunday night and the production value of the show was amazing and they definately upped the ante tonight – i just hope more people can boost its ratings…

  78. DansDans September 27, 2010 at 9:56 am -

    Now we are getting a clear idea of ratings… 0.1 separate 9 and 10, and ABC 0.8 behind.

    I bet ONE wishes they could have F1 on every night with that audience figure!

  79. koverstreet September 27, 2010 at 9:55 am -

    It looks like 1m is the ceiling for the x factor. I had to endure more of this garbage last night – albeit mercifully muted – waiting for Bones to come on. Even without the sound it’s torture.

  80. Todd September 27, 2010 at 9:48 am -

    LOL @ Junior MasterChef continuing to shed viewers.
    Cannot Believe that Midsomer Murders is rating so well… 431,000 viewers in Melbourne, that is just ridiculous.
    X Factor remains around the same as the last 2 sundays. Again Sydney is outperforming Melbourne there… come on fellow Melburnians, tune in!
