    Offspring passes the 1 million mark, and on a Wednesday? Perhaps programmers aren’t that crazy after all!?

  2. Kieran June 30, 2011 at 11:02 am -

    Finally! Offspring cracks the million! and rightly so!

  3. David @ Green Point June 30, 2011 at 10:44 am -

    Just a few observations to toss around…

    Offspring performed remarkably well last night in its new time slot. Might cop a beating next Wed though, with StateOO up against it. Notice that 7’s scheduled 3 repeats of Criminal Minds as their counter offer to the biffo.

    I hope George survives the impending cull at TEN – his 6.30 show has risen from @ one third ACA’s ratings to @ half.
    Not as much as I hoped for by June’s end, but certainly an intelligent alternative that people seem to be slowly switching to.

    And on ACA – flipped through the channels last night and stumbled over ACA’s crucifixion of a Jokester Called Paris. How low can it go?
    Of course, ACA would never stoop so low as to copying another networks report, would they?

  4. MJR June 30, 2011 at 10:43 am -

    So glad offspring held good numers last night.great ep even with tens dismal treatment of show ,changing days and now a later start next week.shame 10

  5. DC June 30, 2011 at 10:37 am -

    Big cheers to Offspring for finally hitting 1 million viewers this year! Has being an excellent season with great writing. Big congrats to the writers for fixing the errors of the patchy first season into what has being a very entertaining season 2. Best aussie drama on Tv at the moment!

  6. Kenny June 30, 2011 at 10:32 am -

    @tmorgan. Of course the idea of adding Nine+Gem+Go and calling the result “Nine” is bogus. OzTam does separate all of the figures. See above (Nine #3 yet again last night). It’s as bogus as adding Coles+Bi-Lo sales figures and calling the result “Coles”.
    Advertisers want to know the individual channel figures, not some bogus compilation of three channels. They are above, under “Channels”. Igore the bogus “Network” figs.

  7. bettestreep2008 June 30, 2011 at 10:29 am -

    mv – totally agree with you re the red team should have lost last night.

    However the “official” reason the blue team lost was because they didn’t achieve the brief of the client ie. a light lunch served in a short time limit.

    But seriously – the judges have a very soft spot for Danni and Ellie and I wouldn’t be surprised if they reach the final 2.

    This is the only thing that is ruining my enjoyment for the show. I’m going for Hayden but he doesn’t need to win MC to have a television career. He’s a marketing dream!

  8. daveinprogress June 30, 2011 at 10:19 am -

    Congrats to Offspring for reaching the magic million again. I hope this bodes well for its new home on Wednesday nights. Be careful Ten, moving your prestige shows might backfire on you! The best drama on the box imho.

  9. JB June 30, 2011 at 10:12 am -

    @mv, that’s just another example of why this year’s Masterchef is crap. They make toast, meatballs, and buy terrine instead of cooking it. The contestants are terrible, the food is terrible. Nothing good this year.

    And no ryan that party didn’t look fun. It looked like a bunch of rich kids, who’s mummy and daddy paid Ten for Masterchef to cook for them. And it was childish. They’re meant to be 21, writing on cupcakes???

  10. Ellie June 30, 2011 at 9:52 am -

    I don’t watch Angry Boys so therefore have no comment on it’s content. But that is the biggest drop off from a launch episode I think I have ever seen.

  11. Nik C June 30, 2011 at 9:49 am -

    Great result for 7TWO with the Tomic match :) Did it break total people’s?

  12. mv June 30, 2011 at 12:30 am -

    I could not believe my ears tonight when on masterchef, the red team won. They bought terrine and jam for goodness sake….. Bought (not made??!!) They should have lost the challenge on that one thing alone, even though there were many other reason why they should have lost.

    The red team basically served, garlic bread, dip, spring rolls, deep fired prawns, meat balls and cup cakes, I could make all that stuff for goodness sake….. no imagination what so ever!!

    Masterchef ?? It should change its name to Master Home Cook or Master Catering! What an absolute joke!

    The blue team clearly, clearly out cooked the red team. The show is no longer about finding the best cook or potential chef.

    I will not be suckered in again next season that is for sure. It has become laughable.

  13. ryan June 29, 2011 at 10:28 pm -

    Totally awesome ep of Mc tonight! Very entertaining. And people think mc doesn’t look after the contestants! Did anyone see alley’s party!! Dam that looked fun.

  14. Secret Squïrrel June 29, 2011 at 8:50 pm -

    @TDJ – I think that you can only level the claim of mostly being owned by foreign interests at Nine Entertainment Co. Seven West, Ten Network Holdings, and WIN Corp are pretty much completely Aussie owned.

  15. walter June 29, 2011 at 5:38 pm -

    Sea patrol has never been a great show and it should have ended last season, just like RSO and Rush. Australian TV seems to be all about production values and blow the story.

  16. Moanique in Brisbane June 29, 2011 at 4:03 pm -

    @ Catherine, read the article and listened to audio, sounds like Lara deliberately blurted it out yo have a dig at Seven. Then again the Amazing Race contestants who told her the secret could be in trouble also, they are not allowed to discuss the result with anyone until aired. Oooops

  17. tmorgan June 29, 2011 at 3:31 pm -

    While I used to think adding all the multi-channels up to the network total was a good idea, the system is misleading viewers to think that a network like Seven has won a night when in fact, its their multichannels which have pulled them over the line.
    The system OzTam decided to use was put into practise probably because they thought the multichannels would pull tiny ratings and the Primary Channels would still be the huge favourite, which is not the case. When a multichannel gets 4-5% a night, it can have a huge effect on who comes out on top and it means that Nine actually hasn’t won the night, but Nine+Go+Gem has triumphed over Seven+7TWO+7mate and TEN+Eleven+One.
    OzTam should split the ratings for these super-networks up, because quite simply its become apparent a network like Nine could, in a few years brag that they are “Still the One,” when in fact that is only so because two sister channels are outrating Seven’s multichannels.

  18. catherine June 29, 2011 at 2:20 pm -

    David, the story is on the perth now website with the headline Lara reveals amazing secret.

    I think it was nice that they had a woman on who isnt a famous chef or has there own 2 hat restaurant but just bakes for country shows. I also loved how she had a hand written recipe for Billy to use.

    Interesting to see the ratings for 7two tonight for Tomic as I believe he is on court 1 first up.

  19. Tony Bee June 29, 2011 at 2:06 pm -

    I don’t think TDJ is correct when he writes “programs always lose some interest when people know it is ending”. In my experience, more people are drawn to the final series to see how the storylines are wrapped up. It’s a great shame when some great shows, such as “The United States of Tara”, are denied that opportunity.

  20. David @ Green Point June 29, 2011 at 1:51 pm -

    Hey JB – (your dig at 7, AFL & Coles) – years ago, shortly after cigarette advertising was banned from TV, Mr Skase (who owned 7 then) couldn’t understand why there was such a waiting list amongst the camera operators at HSV-7 to work weekends televising the AFL matches. Everyone wanted to be included in the roster.

    In fact, many were volunteering to operate the cameras for no pay!

    Finally, the truth was revealed.

    The camera operators were given very large amounts of either payola or product by the cigarette companies whenever the camera lingered longer on the product signage that was scattered around the footy ground – especially near the goal posts.

    NB: This practise was stamped out very quickly by the then 7 management once they realised what was going on…

  21. TDJ June 29, 2011 at 1:28 pm -

    RE: Sea Patrol. Nine in their typically incompetent way stuffed Sea Patrol by announcing that it was the “final season”. Programs always lose some interest when people know it is ending. If Nines pathetic reason for ending Sea Patrol is any indication then Australian TV series do have a bleak future. Let us not forget that these networks are mostly owned by foreigners who want to profit and do not have any interest in Australian content except what they are forced to air. With the weak and gutless cretins we have for politicians that will probably be further diluted as time goes on.

  22. googly eyes June 29, 2011 at 11:09 am -

    It took a little-known contender (Billy) cooking off against a no-name baker granny from the bush for MC to beat AGT on a Tuesday? What gives? Are people tired of celebrity chefs, which MC certainly trots out at an alarming frequency? Hmmm.

  23. Jezza June 29, 2011 at 11:05 am -

    @ Moanique….yeah poor old Sea Patrol is sinking without a trace…

    As regards Angry Boys I can’t stop watching it, there are some real laugh out loud moments and at other times I really do wonder where Chris Lilleys head is at. But there does seem to be a bit of an obsession with sexuality and the bodily functions of the lower regions. Essdotmouse singing an expletive ridden rap about pedophiles to a bunch of young school kids…..well it certainly pushed boundaries as does the asian mum forcing her kid to be gay for product placement… The thought process to create this stuff is just mental……but also IMO entertaining

  24. Moanique in Brisbane June 29, 2011 at 10:39 am -

    Poor old Sea Patrol. I feel a bit guilty for not supporting it, but how can I support two Aussie drama’s at the same time. I’m just a bit worried that because it has rated so poorly, less Aussie drama will be made in future.

  25. steve June 29, 2011 at 10:21 am -

    MasterChef’s ratings against AGT?? .. ‘She’ll be right Jack’

    haha, i loved last night’s episode even if it was pretty simple. I don’t understand why they usually save the complex dishes for the Tuesday’s episode and yet mass production basic food for Wednesday’s team challenges, it should be the other way round, although it looks like tonight’s is a bit more up market.

    So Shine only produced Jnr MC? Funny how i remember seeing people comment here that they actually preferred the Jnr version over the original. Although the ratings weren’t as strong.

  26. ryan June 29, 2011 at 1:49 am -

    I think ten need to promote fridays masterclass better, firstly they could say come cook along with gary and george, or come meet some of the best chefs and get some of the best recipes and technique in aus. The show is alot more than the contestants on fridays, lots of things to learn if you have your own pad and pen during the show.
    On another note i rekon next yr ten should request more eps of bondi vet! It’s an awesome show and does well for them.

  27. David Knox June 29, 2011 at 12:02 am -

    Shine has only produced Jnr MChef.

  28. JB June 28, 2011 at 11:44 pm -

    Yeah, the consensus seems to be this season of Masterchef has sucked big time. Where’s the croquembouche? Instead they have an old lady with a simple but crappy little cake. Standard is way down. Contestants, food, and challenges. Heston Blumenthal last year was brilliant, this year he got them to make burger and chips. And i think they should swap Matt Preston for Matt Moran. Both my parents said they can’t stand Matt Preston, and i tend to agree now.
    So did Shine produce season 1 & 2, and then Fremantle took over this year?? Cos that might explain things.

    Oh and is Channel 7, the AFL and Coles all aligned? The footy the other night a goal was kicked, the camera went to a bunch of supporters in the crowd cheering who all happened to be holding big red hands with Coles written on it. Then cue an ad for Coles. It’s like Coles paid Seven to turn the camera on to a group of people holding their signs.

  29. Moanique in Brisbane June 28, 2011 at 10:36 pm -

    @ Eye Spy, yes I guess I do enjoy crass humour, along with many other types of humour. I certainly don’t need other viewers validation for me to enjoy Angry Boys. As i’ve said previously, I think it is wrong for you to generalize that the audience of Angry Boys are all unintelligent bogans. My parents, who are both in their 70’s watch and enjoy the show, and I can assure you, they are far from unintelligent and are definately not bogans, nor am I. Over and out !

  30. David Knox June 28, 2011 at 8:30 pm -

    Catherine: without revealing the team concerned, where did she reveal this info?

  31. Rutzie June 28, 2011 at 8:01 pm -

    @Catherine, if I was Seven I would tell her not to bother turning up for the DWTS finale given it was deliberate and not just a slip of the tongue. She pretty much kissed any chance of a media career with Seven goodbye.

  32. Pete June 28, 2011 at 7:00 pm -

    If Tomic is an early game on Wednesday Seven TWO will smash the digital records IMO.

  33. David Knox June 28, 2011 at 6:17 pm -

    Exemptions weren’t really happening until the interim anti-siphoning list which was after Nine walked away from Wimbledon. That’s what Seven was able to do, but it didn’t apply to Nine.

  34. Joe June 28, 2011 at 5:49 pm -

    Couldn’t they have seeked exemption from the anti-siphoning rules? Or they could have at least found out they could have this year and kept the rights.

  35. catherine June 28, 2011 at 5:42 pm -

    Thanks Lara Bingle for opening your mouth and mentioning a team that made the final on the amazing race and thought you would just blab it to the media.

  36. Moanique in Brisbane June 28, 2011 at 4:51 pm -

    @ Sal, re: Australian Story, my household were all crying as well. Such a sad story, those two belong together and I hope everything turns out well for them.

  37. David Knox June 28, 2011 at 4:18 pm -

    Not so sucked in. Nine was not allowed to.

  38. Joe June 28, 2011 at 4:00 pm -

    Nine should have shown Wimbledon previous years on Digital channels but chose not to. Sucked in.

  39. Adam June 28, 2011 at 2:12 pm -

    Hmmm…i wonder what will be happening to House next season, with ratings that low.

  40. steve June 28, 2011 at 1:38 pm -

    Nine shouldn’t jump for joy too soon. The Block may have done well but TBBT has dropped significantly … if indeed last night was a new episode.

    MC should do well tonight, i am genuinely excited for tonight’s episode. Billy is not last year’s Alvin by any means but he is becoming one of my more likeable contestants for me. Love tonight’s concept.

  41. Brad June 28, 2011 at 1:26 pm -

    Clever move by 7 to show a score update showing Tomic leading from Winbledon on the screen towards the end of TAR. I assume I’m like many who consequently quickly switched to 72 as soon as TAR finished.

  42. Evan June 28, 2011 at 1:16 pm -

    If I’m correct, NOF got axed in the U.S, so Seven could justifiably shove it on to Seven Mate, and find a replacement for that timeslot.
    Haven’t seen any of The Block yet, but the 7.00PM timeslot move is obviously paying off for Nine.
    Masterchef was very compelling viewing last night – Peter in particular I really like, out of the remaining contestants.

  43. catherine June 28, 2011 at 12:38 pm -

    NOF is doing nothing for 7 at the moment. 7 really should be putting somehitng better in there.

    The Amazing Race was good last night except they stayed in the one country. It would have been nice to see them actually go somewhere else though. Although it looks like next week they go to Poland which should be good. I felt sorry for the farmers though when they kept having to push star
    t the car then they thought they were doing the right thing when they told the two girls not to take the photo of the flag but the girls got the right flag and thought the farmers were lying to them.

    Thankyou 7two and 7 for showing Wimbledon. It was great to switch on at 9pm and watch Tomic live. It will be interesting to see how his match against Novak rates.

  44. Secret Squïrrel June 28, 2011 at 12:20 pm -

    @Gary – channel nine actually beat channel seven by more than 3% last night. You’re thinking of the network totals which are pretty much meaningless. However, I think you’re right about them still having some way to go before they can be considered to be back up the top again.

  45. Jarred June 28, 2011 at 12:10 pm -

    I think seven should thank Bernard Tomic for their overall win last night. Seven have made the right move with the tennis and making full use of their multiple channels, too bad the tennis isn’t in HD on 7mate. I except to see big numbers this week for the tennis with the finals approaching.

  46. Maev June 28, 2011 at 11:53 am -

    Just watched promo for tonights MC…awhile ago….
    Looks like a giggle….I will watch…Love the older lady knitting while Billy is stressing…*G*

  47. David @ Green Point June 28, 2011 at 11:33 am -

    Perhaps 7 should reschedule No Ord Fam and replace it with (ta-daaaaah) edited highlights of the previous weeks Tuesday’s Aust Got Tal!!!

    Think of the cross promotion for ‘the next nights’ Semi & Grand Finals!!!

    The only cost (and I know they’ll like this…) is just an editor and Voice Over Guy!

    And there’s plenty of ‘em at 7…

  48. Gary June 28, 2011 at 11:11 am -

    @tmorgan

    There is no way Nine are stronger. They are losing nights to TEN, they still have so many weak spots. One show doesnt make you stronger. It looks that way but NOF is failing. Seven will have a few weaker nights but that has to be expected. Sundays and Tuesdays are really powering for Seven. Seven still took Monday night so that just shows that it looks great for The Block but everything around it isn’t working.

    Seven have a numerous amount of shows to come including Bones, Castle, Body of Proof, Airways. Border Security, Sunday Night, Teen Wolf, Packed to the Rafters, X Factor, Worlds Strictest Parents,The One are the ones that come to mind and there are more so it’s not all dead yet. Seven will power home in the 2nd half. Every year since Seven have been on top people always say Seven will drop but they have proven they don’t and the same will happen this year.

  49. Mate June 28, 2011 at 11:08 am -

    @ Bruce Banner, unfortunately no, the highest episode has been watched by 455,000, but still last nights ratings were good!

  50. MuchoTB June 28, 2011 at 10:59 am -

    Pretty average episode of the Amazing Race Australia last night. I like the show and have watched it from the start but its start to get repetitive – they need to have some more interesting challenges, having them stack boxes of beer in a brewery is rather lame.

    HIMYM did woefully last week in the Thursday 7:30 slot, only reaching 485,000 viewers, they can at least expect 600k from NOF if nothing else. I figure they’ll either aim to burn off all the NOF episodes as fast as possible, or will dump it from Mondays entirely if those figures keep up.

  51. Sal June 28, 2011 at 10:57 am -

    I hate you Australian Story. You had both me and the missus balling our eyes out….

  52. Bruce Banner June 28, 2011 at 10:39 am -

    Another high for Neighbours if I’m not mistaken?

  53. Rutzie June 28, 2011 at 9:50 am -

    NOF is officially dead. I’m guessing the extra episode per week to be shown on Thursday’s will not go ahead. What has Seven got to replace it? Was it just me or did anyone else notice the over the top product placement on The Block last night. Even their clothes had company logos on them.

  54. tmorgan June 28, 2011 at 9:46 am -

    Woah- big ratings for the Block. 1% seperating Seven and Nine overall.
    Nine always seem to be stronger in the second half of the year, so maybe they need to try focus on some new content for the first semester, instead of being grounded to a pulp and being unable to recover ground lost.
    T

  55. drew June 28, 2011 at 8:53 am -

    I ahve to say, I used to be a MC fan but after the most recent series of My Kitchen Rules, I am a convert. MC really is fodder for segulls – and bad fodder at that. MKR seems to have so much more to it – character, personality – even the cooking is better than masterchef. Masterchef really feels like a sloppy production now – just churning bland sangers out of the sausage machine – hang on a sec, wasnt that one of their lame challenges this year?

  56. Eye Spy June 27, 2011 at 10:33 pm -

    @Moanique
    I always give a show a chance before forming an opinion on it and I am not going to start going through individual episodes to cite specifics. You would be aware that just about everyone who contributes to this blog has had their say on the show and have given their reasons for disliking and abandoning it including myself of course. The overwhelming verdict has been negative. You are one of the few exceptions.
    If you enjoy crude and base humour ???? that is your choice and may say something about you.
    I am not going to engage in an endless tit for tat and probably everyone else on the blog has had enough of the subject.
    This is my last post on the matter so you may have the last word if you so wish.
    Over and out.

  57. ryan June 27, 2011 at 8:29 pm -

    I rem last yr they didn’t show all the dishes either.

  58. ryan June 27, 2011 at 8:26 pm -

    Ten really need to push hawaii 5 0 to 9.30 and that would solve that timeslot for sunday and then move something else to 8.30 sun, even tbyg repeats would be ok cause masterchef is a family show and so is tbyg so alot might hang around for that

  59. Moanique in Brisbane June 27, 2011 at 5:25 pm -

    @ Eye Spy, I’m interested to know exactly how many episodes of Angry Boys you have watched to be able to say the show is unfunny, and all of its viewers are unintelligent.

  60. steve June 27, 2011 at 4:58 pm -

    Seems most people are in agreement. I really hope someone from the Shine Group is looking at this site and others as part of their ‘research’ because i think it’s fair to expect improvements if Shine are taking the rights back from Freemantle for Masterchef.

    Let’s see…. get more interesting people as contestants. Showcase more of the cooking which includes All dishes. Don’t have the same people (Sun and Danielle) doing the commentary comments. Have the team challenges set up more like the Westfield food court challenge were we see individual food concepts otherwise call the show MasterCarter.

  61. mv June 27, 2011 at 3:54 pm -

    @ Goonie, well they should make time. If they cut the crap pointless clichéd commentaries the contestants give, they would have enough time or just make the show half an hour longer. It’s pretty easy to fit it in, and I think very important that they do. If they want us to get to like the contestants more they should actually show us what they are cooking. The show needs to evolve not stay the same it’s becoming so boring and predicable.

  62. Ranco June 27, 2011 at 3:35 pm -

    Has Channel 7 won the year already?

  63. chk chk June 27, 2011 at 3:34 pm -

    I read this on throng, would be very interesting:

    Controversial episode of Inside The Human Body screening this week on Nine

    After causing uproar in the UK, the controversial episode of the BBC series Inside The Human Body that showed a man dying on television will be screened by Channel Nine.

    In this episode on Thursday, June 30, at 8.30pm, host Michael Mosley shows how existence is a constant struggle and how, minute by minute, from your first breath to your last, your body performs countless small miracles to keep you alive.

    Gerald, a man dying from liver and lung disease, agreed to let Inside The Human Body film his death as he passed away at home with his family around him to show viewers what happens when your body finally fails.

    A spokesperson for the BBC said: “Death is an important part of the human experience, and showing Gerald’s death is integral to understanding what happens to the body when it is no longer able to function properly. The BBC does not shy away from difficult subjects like this.”

    Also in this episode, host Mosley meets three remarkable people who demonstrate how well the human body can adapt to extreme environments: Herbert, a world champion free-diver who can hold his breath in the depths of the ocean for up to nine minutes; Wim the Ice Man, who can swim in glacial lakes so cold they would kill a normal person; and Debbie, who has lived for 10 years on a diet of crisps.

    Inside The Human Body: Thursday, June 30, at 8.30pm on Channel Nine

    For the people complaining about the MC editing, whilst I agree it is very annoying – there is not enough time to show all the dishes so they just focus on the people who are cooking the best & the worst.

    If your fave is not featured it is pretty obvious that they have cooked a middle of the road dish only and are not going to be winning or losing.

    There is nothing secret squirrel about it IMO.

    Be careful what you say. Maybe it is you who has a ‘very limited sense of humour’ for all I know.

    @ catherine, i totally agree. It’s it totally annoying that we don’t get to see everything they cook, they could easily fit it in if they dropped all the stupid comments the contestants say. It is so predictable as to who cooked the best and worse dish as that is all we see. Have no idea what some of the contestants are like because we never really see much of them.

    Last nights episode was a blatant rip off of an episode on my kitchen rules. Why couldn’t they set up a marquee or some kind of cover so all those people didn’t have to stand in the rain and eat sogged out food, stupid!

    This season is a major major disappointment, losing interest fast.

    @Maev, agree. It’s an outstanding piece of television, and certainly not just a kids’ show!

    I’m wondering whether it’s the contestants, the challenges or the editors with Masterchef – the contestants seem dull and lacking skill, the challenges seem to be mostly mass-producing very basic food…more like catering than being a chef…and the editors seem to ignore about 1/3 of contestants (Alana, Kumar etc). It’s a chicken and egg sort of thing – do Alana etc seem boring because of the editing, or are they boring and that’s why they’ve been cut?

    Or perhaps it was just that ridiculous doily thing Alana was wearing for that challenge. That was enough to scare anyone off watching Maybe her next part is in a stage production of “Caddie” or something…

    As for the ratings – 10 needs to realise that the ratings are strong because there’s nothing much else to watch and it’s a habit thing for a lot of people. It doesn’t mean the show doesn’t need improving.

    Kieran, more people are watching television in the afternoon than are at 10 in the morning, especially on a Sunday. Most people are sleeping in or, probably in this case, going to church. Also some regional areas don’t receive the morning broadcast though the effect that has on the final figures is arguably marginal given the fraction of the audience that involves.

  70. Maev June 27, 2011 at 12:26 pm -

    More people should give My Place …ABC3….Sundays …5PM….a go…..
    It is more than a ‘kids’ show….lovely period pieces…
    Give it a try…you may be pleasantly surprised.

    The Bolt Report – SCTEN doesn’t run it in the morning. They run it at 4:30pm only (‘though too lazy to edit out the “good morning” news headlines and insert one of the afternoon news updates). I guess this includes Canberra.
    Don’t know so much about the “when all the conservatives have gotten home from church”. I have better things to do on Sunday morning than watch TV, but TV-watching starts around 4pm when the sun starts to set. More likely explanation.

  72. catherine June 27, 2011 at 12:07 pm -

    I agree totally. 7 out of 12 dishes we only saw last night. I cannot remember when we last saw Kumar’s dish being presented from a sunday night challenge. You wouldnt have even known that Alana was even in the show last night. The thing that annoyed me was Matt Moran said to Kate you live in the country dont you so you know what country people like to eat. We didnt even see Kates dish. All we saw her was help Sun when he fire imploded. Its seriously annoying me this editing.

    On the other hand Downton Abbey was again fantastic. Just love the characters.

    @JB

    Most of what you have said has merit. Although do consider Mat wasn’t the only one ignored last night. There was basically one frame of Alana last night and that was after the challenge. We didn’t even see Kumar’s, Kate’s or Dani’s dish. If there isn’t enough time to showcase everyone then they should extend the broadcast to 90 minutes.

    I agree that the contestants are thrilling this year, i think there is too many 20 something year olds and not enough life and cooking experience but then again it’s not right to pigeon hole everyone. Poh and Adam were brilliant but… that’s why they made it to finals. Last year with Marion as well as the lawyer Claire and the villian John (hope I’ve got the names correct) did add the must see tv which isn’t around this year.

    I don’t think however TEN are really concerned at his point seeing as though week to week the ratings are only going up and not down

  75. Dave June 27, 2011 at 10:48 am -

    Any idea how the AFL rated in Adelaide with Geelong vs Adelaide and Port Adelaide vs North Melbourne?

  76. steve June 27, 2011 at 10:48 am -

    I’ve got the cure for TEN at 6pm Sundays… new episodes of the The Simpsons. I’m the target demo and i reckon they are being wasted at ELEVEN as i forget to watch. The Simpsons new episodes used to get at least 800,000 when they were TEN and pretty sure they could still attract those types of figures.

    Anyways 60 minutes was bland last night. Gold rush in Siberia and teenagers sex-ting was pretty uninspiring. Funny also how The Bolt Report encore out does the original broadcast. Why not just make it an afternoon show when all the conservatives have gotten home from church??

  77. Kieran June 27, 2011 at 10:42 am -

    I love how the encore of The Bolt Report got more viewers than the initial episode

  78. tmorgan June 27, 2011 at 10:26 am -

    Seven’s share last night came down 2% on last week Sunday. Maybe audiences are fracturing since they have been exposed to offerings on other networks.

  79. JB June 27, 2011 at 10:25 am -

    Masterchef has really tried hard to edit out Mat since the phone story broke. I remember watching last week and not even seeing him once and thought oh he must have gone already. They showed some shots of him last night, but he hasn’t spoken to camera since the story.

    And people gave MKR crap for copying Masterchef, well last night was basically MKR NT challenge.

    Petra Starke wrote an article in Adelaide tv guide this week about Masterchef and I agree with everything. I’m over this season of Masterchef. The contestants are not great at all. No one to love or hate, and the quality of food is woeful. Compare it to the last 2 years you had Poh creating incredible dishes, Adam last year made some amazing stuff, but this year they can’t even cook porrige and not one dish has made me go wow. Not interested, so i really only watch now if there’s nothing else on. Not religiously like i used to

    Do you know the ratings for Geelong vs Adelaide and Port Adelaide vs North Melbourne AFL games?
