    No wayyy nine won saturday look how many channel 9 shows there are at the top of the list

  2. Secret Squïrrel June 18, 2011 at 9:10 pm -

    @Joe – they only have enough bandwidth for one full HD and 2 SD channels. That won’t change until the govt allocates them more spectrum, mostly by carving up the existing analog frequencies when the switchover to digital is complete.

  3. Joe June 18, 2011 at 5:50 pm -

    Hurry up and bring on 2014 when channels like 7, 9, 10, and other like GO! and 7Two can also be broadcasted in High Definition. Why does each network only have 1 dedicated channel for HD? Why can’t all of them simulcast in HD? Sport in SD on a big screen tv looks like sh*t.

  4. P June 18, 2011 at 3:53 pm -

    @Joe -Sydney is 4 times larger than those cities.

    Who cares anyway? NRL is for NSW&QLD, AFL is for the rest. Not going to change anytime soon.

  5. ryan June 18, 2011 at 3:33 pm -

    Looks like the masterclass is slowly picking up, just like previous seasons, funny cause i love the masterclasses! much more involved with people at home

  6. Anton June 18, 2011 at 1:15 am -

    Impressed with the Origin ratings for Melbourne, both Game 1 & 2 have been around 300,000. Hopefully with the next broadcast agreement we get to see more Storm games on free to air, especially as most matches these days are Foxtel exclusive.

    And lets not draw any conclusions from a pitiful audience in Adelaide and Perth due to a horrific delay. WIN ought to be looking to putting Origin on GEM live in these cities, even if you may have to write to Senator Conroy and seek an exception from anti siphoning rules.

  7. mv June 17, 2011 at 11:38 pm -

    @ David, yes i agree…. boring….. whenever i see any foosball comments i don’t even bother reading them. Move on, they are both crap. Go fight about it on Twitter or something. Next!!

  8. David @ Green Point June 17, 2011 at 9:30 pm -

    Why has this blog suddenly switched from TV to Foolball?

  9. Joe June 17, 2011 at 8:42 pm -

    Whatever rugby, rugby league it looks like the same thing from someone who has never seen the sport(s) living in Adelaide. And as people have mentioned below Craig, last time I checked 71k in Sydney watching footy was more than 40 k and 36k in Adelaide and Perth separatley watching rugby league.

  10. Michael June 17, 2011 at 8:34 pm -

    @ Geoff, fair enough… I didn’t read Craig’s comment. And I’m not having a go, you just seem to be very passionate about your AFL and notice you sometimes attack NRL for it. But you were just stating facts. Apologies!

  11. Trix June 17, 2011 at 7:23 pm -

    @Goonies, I think you totally get Angry Boys. To me it’s much more of a pretty dark reflection of contemporary society – hence the title. Personally I think it’s brilliant but I can see why some people are put off that there’s not as many laughs to be had.

  12. Craig June 17, 2011 at 5:56 pm -

    Close night Thursday, only 2 points difference between 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

  13. Goonies June 17, 2011 at 4:15 pm -

    I have seen every ep of Angry Boys as well, and whilst it is definitely not as funny as SHH I am not sure it is meant to be. I am watching it more as a social commentary and if you have not come across anyone that fits those moulds nearly perfectly then you are not paying much attention to society.

    I grew up in a coastal country town and I can tell you that Blake and the twins are so spot on it’s not funny. The party on Thursday was giving me flashbacks!!

    I really felt for Gran and Daniel at the end too :(

  14. quokka June 17, 2011 at 4:09 pm -

    Nobody watched the Origin on nine in Perth because Foxtel started it an hour earlier at 8:30.
    @ Daniel…crowds for the Western Reds games averaged around 17000(as an NRL side – but about 10000 while the Super League screwed us over). I bet most sydney clubs would love figures like that.

  15. TDJ June 17, 2011 at 3:44 pm -

    How seriously dumb are the people running the Ten network. I have seen several times lately on 11, while Neighbours was on, Charlie Pickering coming on and promoting the 7 PM Project and saying flick the channel, now go on. Are they purposely trying to sabotage their own programs? Is this the level of utter stupidity that networks are sinking to.

  16. Geoff June 17, 2011 at 3:29 pm -

    @ Michael–

    Read Craig’s comment before you have a go at me. Craig commented that even on a 4 hour delay that SOO did better in Adel & Perth then AFL did in Sydney, which is not true.

    The problem here is people don’t Read!

  17. Ann June 17, 2011 at 3:15 pm -

    On Trial should have rated better, it was great

  18. Michael June 17, 2011 at 2:52 pm -

    Gosh, people love defending their respective sports codes here.

    @ Geoff, at the risk of sounding like a hypocrite, you’re comparing a live AFL game in a large city to a delayed rugby league game in smaller cities, additionally Perth viewers could see the Origin match an hour earlier on Fox Sports. But then again the AFL match was on in the afternoon, so it’s difficult to make comparisons.

    Nine could probably show the State of Origin live on GO! into Adelaide and Perth if they asked for permission, but they just couldn’t be bothered. Nine don’t mind coming in third every Tuesday by playing TBBT but seem to mind getting beaten in Adelaide and Perth when it’s the State of Origin, yet still win the night, hmmm….

  19. Maev June 17, 2011 at 1:20 pm -

    Um hello ryan….I like The Defenders….TEN please leave it where it is…thankyou!

  20. Geoff June 17, 2011 at 1:11 pm -

    @ Craig,

    I love how you go on pro-NRL rants and claim that a delayed SOO game does better in Adelaide & Perth then a Swans AFL game does in Sydney?

    Do you not read the facts on this very page? The Swans/Tigers AFL game on Sunday afternoon got 71,000 on Sunday Afternoon. That’s a game between the home side and arguably the worst team in AFL in the past decade (The Tigers haven’t made finals since 2001)

    71,000 in Sydney on a Sunday afternoon is higher then 40,000 or 31,000 that SOO in those cities, yes?

    I love how even the facts won’t stop you sprouting propoganda.

  21. A. June 17, 2011 at 1:02 pm -

    Thank you David. :)

  22. Jezza June 17, 2011 at 12:16 pm -

    @ Craig @ James….new clause put in the contract obviously

  23. JoeS June 17, 2011 at 11:14 am -

    @ James

    Not sure what happened in ’07 but in ’09 and ’10 the Blues were so crap that making them win one of those first two games would have had the fraud squad rading the TAB offices ;-)

  24. Tony Bee June 17, 2011 at 10:50 am -

    I loved We Can Be Heroes and Summer Heights High. I’m sorry, but Angry Boys is just crass. I can forgive crass as long as it’s funny, but not when it’s not. Where’s Mr G when you need him? The jailhouse gran is the only interesting character in the new series.

  25. Daniel June 17, 2011 at 7:29 am -

    trev – the NRL already did “spread its wings” to perth and adelaide. remember the western reds? crowds were mediocre then the two teams got screwed by the corporates – the result being the melbourne storm. no-one there gives a toss about league (other than people who’ve moved from NSW and theres a few), they see it as an eastern states thing – union’s another story. AFL does better in Sydney than NRL does in non league states.

    it’s a shame btw that angry boys dropped off so heavily on the night when i think it actually started to get good.

  26. James June 16, 2011 at 11:59 pm -

    @ Jezza – last 5 years.
    07′ QLD won first 2 matches – dead rubber
    08′ tied after two matches.
    09′ QLD won first 2 matches – dead rubber
    10′ QLD won first 2 matches – dead rubber
    11′ tied after two matches.

    What happened to your accusation in 07, 09 and 10?

    Such an inane & ludacris comment.

  27. Moanique in Brisbane June 16, 2011 at 11:06 pm -

    @ Adam, I agree Angry Boys was good last night. I’ve watched every episode and found it very funny, I think it is definately building as it goes, but not building in audience numbers unfortunately.

  28. JB June 16, 2011 at 10:15 pm -

    @Kenny, Nine has finished 3rd on Wednesday every week anyway. So obviously they aren’t too fussed with winning ratings, so it amazes me they think 3 repeat episodes of Big Bang and a 2006 episode of CSI are more important than live sport.
    Both games by time they were shown in Adelaide had already been played and won. Game 1 got 31,000. Moved up to 9.30 and it increased to 40,000. If they showed it live it would get even better. And a 3rd deciding match surely live is the only option. Plus it’s 3 days before an NRL match in Adelaide. When i rang Nine i asked at least put it on Gem or Go, and the women said oh but we can’t do that. I said Seven and Ten have done it, all you need to do is get permission. She went quiet. Nine are pathetic. They have no idea. Hope they lose the rights.

  29. Craig June 16, 2011 at 9:54 pm -

    I just recorded the 2nd Polar Bears special on Nine and it ran almost 5 minutes short of the 50 for the 2nd part, hate to ask but did Nine do some editing?

  30. col June 16, 2011 at 9:18 pm -

    @Steve , thanks for the heads up , i meant to say American Soap Opera , that would be the correct word i think but then again i may be right as how does one keep a straight face with some of the lines they have to deliver.

  31. Ryano June 16, 2011 at 7:57 pm -

    Terrible figures for rugby league in Perth/Adelaide in “prime time”

  32. Trev June 16, 2011 at 6:49 pm -

    @ Joe,
    I agree that the numbers for Adelaide and Perth were extremelly soft, but when the NRL eventually spreads its wings to those two towns they will improve. Now you know how the AFL must really feel about the consistenly low figures from Sydney and to a slightly lesser extent Brisbane, when Seven and Ten insist on showing at least 4 games of Aussie Rules per weekend, that are watched by hardly anyone.
    Sure Masterchef beat the footy, but even the Iron Chef wallops the Swans live matches in Sydney.

    By the way, it’s not called rugby, that’s the game the rich buggers reckon they play in Heaven…..It’s called League.

    As for Jezza, I quote the immortal words of Evonne from ‘The Castle’, ” Get your hand off it Darryl”.

  33. ryan June 16, 2011 at 5:48 pm -

    Um Hello ten! defenders sucks! Burn notice rules! Put it on 9.30 weds!!

  34. bh June 16, 2011 at 5:41 pm -

    OK, small pedant’s point – AFL loyalists are of course welcome to bag out the State of Origin as much as they like, but while you’re doing it, remember that it’s not “rugby”. That’s a completely separate game. The sport that they’re playing in Origin is “rugby league”. Now, back to the hostilities!

  35. Goonies June 16, 2011 at 5:17 pm -

    @ A – you just press the holiday button when you go off for an extended period of time so that Nielsen knows why the box is sitting dormant – without activitating the holiday option they will just think you have not turned the box on or that it is faulty or something.

    @ steve – unfortunately our set up makes the ratings box a little tempermental so too hard for me to fudge things :) I did recently read an article with a bloke that claimed to have fake Big Bro parties and enter up to 12 extra people but again nielsen reads the patterns of your viewing or whatever and can see that there is an anomaly.

  36. Craig June 16, 2011 at 5:13 pm -

    @ Joe. Rugby’s a different game. It’s Rugby League!
    SOO on a 3 to 4 hour delay Adelaide & Perth and it still out rate the Swans and lions live in prime time in Syd and Bris on most weekends.

  37. Craig June 16, 2011 at 5:10 pm -

    @Jezza – Looking at the Origin results over the last five years…in 2007, 2009 and 2010, Queensland have won the first two games, making the third game a dead rubber. Doesn’t look like the NRL have had much success with “scripting” the games.
