    Thank you David for the figures this week. :)

  2. Moanique in Brisbane July 31, 2011 at 6:27 pm -

    Angry Boys was far from a disappointment to me. I actually thought it was a step up from SHH

  3. John July 31, 2011 at 3:06 pm -

    David, I actually hope the pre-orders translate into sales for the ABC’s sake. I own copies of WCBH and SHH, but I wouldn’t buy AB.

  4. Ryano July 31, 2011 at 1:19 pm -

    AFL ratings in Melbourne have been horrific in the last few weeks.

  5. Secret Squïrrel July 31, 2011 at 1:19 pm -

    I wouldn’t be using the number of FB fans, or any similar stat, as a reliable indicator of how many people watch a program. There’s a massive bias with regard to the subset of the population who would bother to sign up to a FB page. I’m betting that the FB page for Midsomer Murders wouldn’t have many fans but it killed Angry Boys in the ratings.

  6. David Knox July 31, 2011 at 12:14 pm -

    DVD pre-orders for AB are said to be very high. Timeshifted and iViews do lift its numbers, but they do for most scripted shows. It’s hard not to ignore the point the series was a disappointment.

  7. John July 31, 2011 at 12:02 pm -

    The ABC publicity department seem to be desperately trying to put a positive spin on the ratings decline of Angry Boys pointing to social media and iView as evidence of more interest than what the ‘official’ ratings suggests. I guess the reasons are twofold, while the ABC doesn’t need ratings to attract advertisers, it still has to justify making a series that doesn’t bring in the ratings numbers in case it affects future funding. And the other concern must be the massive amount of unsold DVDs there will probably be for this series. Ouch.

  8. Kieran July 31, 2011 at 11:31 am -

    It is important to note that Masterchef ratings this year are far, far below those of last year’s series at this time leading up to the final week.

  9. The Other Adam July 31, 2011 at 8:52 am -

    Chris Lilley is copping a lot of crap from the media about the huge ratings drop

    But can you really trust this rating system? The Angry Boys facebook fan page has twice the amount of fans than Australias Got Talent (and just half of Masterchef’s which has been running for several years)

  10. Maev July 30, 2011 at 7:28 pm -

    James May’s Toy Stories last night….was amazing…loved it….
    A garden made by many….out of plasticine….entered in the Chelsea Flower Show…sounds silly….but the story was great to watch.

  11. Johnson July 30, 2011 at 2:34 pm -

    Thanks David for the Lady Gaga concert numbers. They are even lower than the figures for her NY concert on Eleven. I wonder why Nine bought the rights to the Sydney concert at all.

  12. David Knox July 30, 2011 at 12:25 pm -

    Take 40 presents:
    6pm 75,000
    11pm 79,000

  13. Joe July 30, 2011 at 12:00 pm -

    Low numbers in Melbourne for the football. Very strange considering it was a close match. I guess fans are just over Sevens delays. Parents and kids can’t stay up late until 11.30 especially when they have sport in the morning. Steady numbers in Adelaide and Perth though.

  14. Johnson July 30, 2011 at 11:10 am -

    David, how did the Lady Gaga concert rate on GO! last night, especially the premiere screening?

  15. JB July 29, 2011 at 8:46 pm -

    How good was it seeing Robert Knepper as T-Bag again on Breakout Kings last night. Was bloody excited when i saw it was him, and even more so when i realised he was T-Bag.

  16. TDJ July 29, 2011 at 6:30 pm -

    @ MJR. I have noticed the same thing with All commercial stations. The constantly repeating handful of movies. The television series like Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory are ridiculous enough with the incessant repeats. Now channels like GO! and Mate are going down the crapper. After airing some reasonable programs they appear to have run out of steam. What happened to the “fright night Friday”. There were some reasonable movies. Now once again three hours of incessant repeats of an old Mysteries program. I guess the answer is turn the morons off and rent a Blu-Ray or read a book. If these morons were any other business they would be shut down.

  17. Pete July 29, 2011 at 6:15 pm -

    Live sport in prime time gets viewers. Who would have figured? ONE rarely showed live sport in it’s early days which is why it got such terrible figures.

    Any idea what Breakout Kings got David? Very enjoyable show so far.

  18. steve July 29, 2011 at 1:24 pm -

    TEN should take note and start airing the swimming on ONE live.. it pays off!

  19. MJR July 29, 2011 at 12:33 pm -

    So TEN trots out devil wears prada again.Is that 5 times in 12 months.WTF at least show something that has only been on once or twice like the tv movies ten has produced,like the murder movie of housewife in melbourne or something other than same one all he time.

  20. Trix July 29, 2011 at 10:56 am -

    I’ve been excitedly sitting on my hands, waiting for Judith Lucy’s series to begin, and am so glad others are enjoying it as much as I have … and it just gets better as the series progresses.

  21. samo July 29, 2011 at 10:39 am -

    wow today in sydney 150k v 85k sunrise- who cares if they loose bris adel and perth ..today romp home in Syd and Mel ….

  22. ohyeah July 29, 2011 at 10:10 am -

    @ Rutzie.. I disagree on your comments… hamish and andy started off a little slow but it picked up was the show went on. the true test will be in the coming weeks as to if the ratings will continue to hold or drop. I think the show will do just fine! oh..if u hadnt noticed neil patrick harris was very funny! he doesnt have to talk to be funny.
    If anyone missed it.. it will be replayed on go sunday.

  23. monk July 29, 2011 at 10:06 am -

    @Moanique in Brisbane
    I was more impressed with John Safran, when he did this years ago.
    But i suppose original comics are always the funniest.

  24. Rutzie July 29, 2011 at 5:07 am -

    Very disappointed in Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year. Way to predictable and I just found in very boring, especially the first 15 minutes. They had one of the funniest guys in the biz on in Neil Patrick Harris and they didn’t let him get a word in.

  25. Moanique in Brisbane July 29, 2011 at 3:46 am -

    Great to hear others enjoyed Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey as well. I thought it was going to be quite serious, but it was Judith at her funniest. If she asks the same bold questions of other religions as she asked members of the Catholic church, I think we’re in for a wild ride :)

  26. ryan July 28, 2011 at 11:23 pm -

    Reno is kinda weird. just get in the god dam houses already!

  27. JB July 28, 2011 at 9:55 pm -

    Today Tonight hates you David. Gave a nice little dig at you for exposing their lies regarding Jack on AGT. TT always wanna expose dodgy people, but god forbid anyone expose Seven as dodgy.
    Don’t worry, you’re a credible journo David whereas TT is gutter trash and a disgrace to the profession. They’re just jealous.
    For the record i don’t watch that crap, me mum had it on when i was getting dinner.

  28. Andy July 28, 2011 at 9:31 pm -

    Joining the Judith Lucy Spiritual Journey Bandwagon.
    Didn’t expect to stick with it – turned out to be the highlight of my week! Can’t wait for ep 2.

  29. googly eyes July 28, 2011 at 9:11 pm -

    I liked Angry Boys and was moved by the finale, at the time. Today it felt a bit too deus ex machina to me, but I still enjoyed it overall, despite the heavy cursing and attempts to shock.

  30. Tommo July 28, 2011 at 7:30 pm -

    @Tony Bee likewise. I stayed with the whole series (as a Lilley fan) and found it decidedly average.
    Judith Lucy’s show made it worth it. Wow! Couldn’t believe how good it was, the show was a warmer, funnier and ultimately better than Safran’s a few years back.

  31. daveinprogress July 28, 2011 at 4:15 pm -

    I hope more people check out Judith Lucy’s Spritual Journey. She had me from her first syllables. Although i wondered if we were going to get another John Safran indulgent fest, there is something so likeable and self effacing about Judith, and of course that is her shtick, along with some colourful language and ideas, but she is truly a one off, and i love her willingness to reveal who she is through her comedy.
    I made it through a few, but not all of Safran’s last ABC series, but Judith is a cack!

  32. callas July 28, 2011 at 3:43 pm -

    bravo to chris lilley for angry boys. the ending was so moving and inspirational !!

  33. Josh July 28, 2011 at 3:34 pm -

    In regards to Wednesday night, Covert Affairs managed to pull 586,000 in Syd (beating The Defenders on TEN but beaten by RPA on Nine), but the idea to put a second new epsiode at 10:30pm didn’t work (with a huge decrease in viewers and being beaten by RPA: Where are they now on Nine). Seven would be better off keeping the show at one episode at 9:30pm, especially seems though there is only 4 episodes till Seven is caught up with the U.S.

  34. steve July 28, 2011 at 2:23 pm -

    Matt Preston was on The Circle yesterday where he basically said the immunity challenges haven’t work this year. In particular Danni vs The Olympic swimmer.

  35. Moanique in Brisbane July 28, 2011 at 1:47 pm -

    Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey was hilarious, although I don’t think religious people especially Catholics would have been too impressed. Looking forward to next weeks episode

  36. Tony Bee July 28, 2011 at 1:09 pm -

    I loved Chris Lilley’s earlier work, but only stuck with Angry Boys out of curiosity to see where he took it. “Outstanding” isn’t the word that comes to my mind.

  37. Moanique in Brisbane July 28, 2011 at 12:33 pm -

    Good to see Angry Boys got up to 612k for the final. Although it didn’t appeal to everyone, it had a very niche` audience that loved it. The ending was very clever indeed, brilliant editing. Congratulations Chris Lilley on yet another outstanding piece of work.
