    @SteveZ the Australian is reporting ratings/rankings for that day. Tim Winton’s cloudstreet Ep 2 was the #1 non-sport broadcast on the day it premiered.

    cloudstreet more like clodstreet what a load of rubbish this show is big disapointment

  3. SteveZ June 9, 2011 at 6:32 am -

    According to today’s Australian, the second episode of Cloudstreet was ” the No 1 non-sport program across the pay-TV platform.”

    But these ratings figures indicate it was way down the list. Can anyone clarify this?

    Not sure if the Balls of Steel figures would be good enough for a second season, the show is pretty ho hum really. Maybe someone with TV knowledge could comment on the numbers needed, but as a huge BOS UK fan, have to say the Aussie version seems very set up and and not all that funny really. Maybe comedy channel could pay for a BOS UK series :-))))

    Live AFL: On The Couch almost rated higher than an actual football match (crows vs lions) lol

    @Ed , Don’t worry, year 11 and 12 students will be forced to watch and analyse Cloudstreet for years to come..

    I’m glad to see Balls of Steel Australia back in the Top 50. Last night’s episode was a cracker. The Bunny Boiler were hilarous and Neg had me in stitches. I hope they make another season, great show!

    Cloudstreet has dropped by over 50% in just a week!

    It’s gone from 158k to 73k in Metro + Regional figures.
