    @ redmond

    You get that with live shows. Daryl is just waiting for them to set it up for next segment or band. Be very hard to do hey hey in 1hr the show just is to big.

  2. redmond October 25, 2010 at 2:25 pm -

    Hey Hey did ok I suppose. It did manage to add viewers after FHV. The problem with it is that it’s simply too long. They need to cut it into a 1hr show or at max 1&1/2 hours, I watched it on Sat and was thinking to myself “Just get on with it Daryl, stop waffling and go to the next segment.”, so after about 1 &1/2 hours of Daryl waffling and dragging things out unnecessarily I’d had enough. Keep the segments short, sharp and to the point, stop Darryl from waffling, give Livinia Nixon more screen time and the show will improve.

    @ steven

    So if hey hey (in theTop 3 shows) is gone with 878,000.
    So all shows under 878,000 on Saturday are gone too then.

    Top Gear UK just gets over a mil each week and 9 pays $19mil for it

    Hey Hey Its Saturday is G O N E.

  5. James October 24, 2010 at 10:42 pm -

    @ TDJ. Late last year people-meters changed to include viewing habits of recorded shows.
    This comes through 7 days later as a Consolidated figure in which the highest rating show for the night gets around 100K extra viewers (between 5-20% more). Records for Drama are the highest whilst News and Sport are lowest.
    BTW Cool to blow off steam but this info is out every day, it’s no secret, just makes you come across malformed.

  6. aznfratboy October 24, 2010 at 10:09 pm -

    @ TDJ

    The reason why viewers who record is next to useless is because ultimately, the ratings are useful only to one type of people – advertisers, we can bitch, moan and talk about viewership all we want, produce algorithms and what not, channel TEN isn’t going to make money off that. Additionally, most people who record a show have the opporunity to fast forward through advertisments, when I’m sitting on the edge of my seat, jaw pinned to the ground and can of soda barely gripped in my fingertips trying to find out what’s going to happen next, nothing is more of a buzzkill then the newsbreak that repeats the same crap about some idiot politician or moronic celebrity who got the flu on the weekend… or the crappy advert for nappies.

    What I’d like to know is how a network can get 3 of the top 5 and 5 of the top 10 shows for the night, and can only come third, yet another network gets 2 shows in the top 10 and can eclipse the first said network and then some in “Share”. Granted today we have to take into account the 70billion other useless multi-channel whatevertf you call them, ABC should still have a much higher Share than 20, and Seven 30.

    @TDJ: Totally agree..

  8. David Knox October 24, 2010 at 5:57 pm -

    Consolidated figures take into account programmes recorded and watched within 7 days by those that are in the OzTAM panel.

  9. TDJ October 24, 2010 at 5:03 pm -

    Let me start by stating that the ratings system is complete and inaccurate rubbish. It does not take into account the majority of programs that are recorded and of course multiple programs airing at the same time can be recorded. People who work like myself seldom have time to watch programs as they run. They are mostly recorded. With that said, what type of moron believes that 600,000 is a small number? I read a statement in the telegraph television section that stated that the program “The Event” had been a failure and moved because “only” 670,000 people watch it, how absolutely ridiculous. As I stated before, how many record it? These programs are being blamed for failing when it is in fact the utter stupidity and incompetence of the networks that are to blame for struggling programs. They have no concept of how to run a program properly or fairly, that is of course unless it has a 1902 number attached to it. Then it can have the worst ratings imaginable and still air. I myself can’t be bothered wasting my time watching anything. I may have watched the Event but I knew this would happen as it does with most programs. It would get moved after a short time. Well I as well as I can imagine a lot of viewers can not be bothered anymore. I am sick of being jerked around by infantile idiots who supposedly “run” networks. That is why programs are suffering. Programs need to be brought out directly onto DVD or download. We need to bypass these networks altogether. That have made themselves irrelevant with their arrogance, contempt for viewers, constant lying and misleading and general incompetence. Turn it off.

  10. ryan October 24, 2010 at 4:45 pm -

    I wonder who has the rights to the x- files and buffy?? i rekon both would do well on a second channel.
    Also when are we gonna see the new saw movie on fta and wrong turn 1,2 and 3 and while your at it show the new friday the 13th!!

  11. Maev October 24, 2010 at 2:33 pm -

    @ Allie…..thanks!

  12. Donald October 24, 2010 at 1:01 pm -

    Ally, I don’t know what you mean by nothing rated on 7 except for the news – they had a movie at #8, another movie at #12, plus Guinness World Records at #14 – that’s a fairly solid night. They had 4 shows in the top 15 vs. only 3 for Nine, plus a 72 program making the top 30, so I’m not sure what the mystery about 7 winning is.

    Good figure for the V8’s. I guess it’s the international drivers pulling some extra viewers in. Can’t believe 7 have the audacity to advertise 7mate on the fences there whilst only broadcasting the race on the SD channel, especially after the recent brouhaha.
