    I’ll admit I’m still curious about what happened with the Smallville ratings David. But if or when you have time. I’ll look in on Week 32 since it’s most logical to put it here if you feel like it. If not please answer here. BTW thank you for that edit. I didn’t see it until after I sent the other comment so that’s why it’s now. I’ll understand if you don’t have time to look into the Smallville matter. Just tell me please. Thank you.

    I was concerned on Saturday that Tamara Oudyn had chopped her hair off, but noticed tonight she looked normal. I was most relieved. Now I’m wondering what I actually saw on Saturday.

    What were the Friday night NRL ratings in Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth?

  4. JB August 7, 2011 at 3:15 pm -

    Really sucks that we only get half an hour of Before The Game in Adelaide. So we basically miss all the good stuff. Get rid of the 6pm news if it means we actually get to watch a whole episode of BTG. Looking at the ratings people would rather watch BTG than another half hour of news.

  5. Another John August 7, 2011 at 3:05 pm -

    Yes! Gardening Australia beat the Bledisloe Cup. My day has just been made.

  6. Secret Squïrrel August 7, 2011 at 1:36 pm -

    Hah, the Bledisloe Cup match would’ve been 7th if someone hadn’t made a typo when coding the Brisbane broadcast.

    Overall figures for the night are low. I would’ve thought people would stay indoors more during winter but, if they did, it wasn’t to watch FTA. Did everyone just break out the DVDs?

  7. Eye Spy August 7, 2011 at 1:13 pm -

    Very poor figures for the union considering the Blediscoe Cup is supposed to be an iconic fixture. Doesn’t bode well for the impending world cup.
    Ironic that the ad breaks consisted of James O’Connor kicking perfect conversions. He must have forgotten to take his Swisse before the real thing.

  8. David Knox August 7, 2011 at 12:46 pm -

    5pm on GEM . 11:40pm on Nine.

  9. Ian August 7, 2011 at 12:43 pm -

    Thanks for the GEM figures David.

    Seems Adelaide is more multichannel savy.

    Do you know (or anyone else out there), if the Nine coverage was at the same time (ie live) or as scheduled at 11.30 pm.

  10. David Knox August 7, 2011 at 12:18 pm -

    Bledisloe Cup on GEM:
    Melb: 10,000
    Adelaide: 21.000

  11. Ian August 7, 2011 at 12:15 pm -

    Was the bledisloe in Melbourne simucast live on GEM?

  12. the facts August 7, 2011 at 12:14 pm -

    as expected 7 news sydney killed the union game last night. if union cant win head2head in a the markets that even have a remote interest in union then it is a minor sport and should be left for Pay.

  13. Maev August 7, 2011 at 12:09 pm -

    7 News the only one with over a million…guess not a lot of people watch TV on Saturday nights.

  14. Joe August 7, 2011 at 11:52 am -

    David what were the ratings for the rugby on Gem in Adelaide and Melbourne?

  15. ryan August 6, 2011 at 5:17 pm -

    I’m still pushing for simpsons @ 6!! Come on 11!

  16. walter August 6, 2011 at 3:29 pm -

    Is it normal for Neighbours to be in the 200’s on a Friday night?

  17. Rob August 6, 2011 at 3:08 pm -

    I know Friday’s are generally lower across the board but Renovators masterclass (or whatever clever buzzword they’re calling it) pulled just 574,000….that’s Half the audience from the previous night and less than half it’s lead-in! That kind of retention is dangerous!

  18. ryan August 6, 2011 at 2:56 pm -

    renovators how to do last night was great! i now know how to lay down tiles in a bathroom:)

  19. Maev August 6, 2011 at 2:24 pm -

    @ steve sydney ….Depends on who is watching….I am thoroughly enjoying The Defenders…..and will be sorry to see it finish……each to their own!

  20. Allie August 6, 2011 at 1:31 pm -

    @MJR, yeah, Hayden wasn’t present on MC last night, I presume he had another engagement. It did not look like all of the 24 were there.

  21. MJR August 6, 2011 at 1:05 pm -

    Where was Hayden on last nights MC ?????????????
    No mention of his absence and I am sure he was not there.

  22. Luke August 6, 2011 at 12:41 am -

    I really want to like Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year… but it’s just not entertaining. They butchered the James Franco segment by making it purely about the ridiculous ‘portal’ schtick. The roller derby segment was the only good and entertaining thing about the show last night.

    Stick to radio, or the odd Channel 10 special.

    Can I just say that I’m shocked no one else is upset about the blatant Rove copycat with the Ryan Shelton segment?… Literally lifted straight from Rove.

  23. Guy August 5, 2011 at 10:34 pm -

    Good. Dumb and Dumber goes down. I hope it hits 600k soon. Its a load of crap.

    Renovators going up like that could see it rise next week at 7:30pm. IMO this is The Block on steroids.

  24. A. August 5, 2011 at 9:07 pm -

    @ David or anyone with the information.

    Could you please say if Star Trek still got over 100,000 ? Also since Smallville got taken off what was this weeks figures? Plus what was the first episode figures of season 9 (I think Sunday 3 April 2011 Week 15 ) . Plus was the figures of when it started after 10.45pm different to earlier 10.15-10.30pm? I’ll admit for myself I kept missing the start when they did that. As I said in the TV Lounge area I hope they put it on a weekday. Thursday would be great when SGU ends. But there are other days.

  25. EMS August 5, 2011 at 5:02 pm -

    Finally The Renovators hit its first one million viewers! :)

  26. Tony Bee August 5, 2011 at 4:23 pm -

    Maybe Hamish and Andy would’ve been better off going all the way with ripping off Flight of the Conchords and making a mockumentary about them trying to make it in the US. That still would have been more original than the stale “Tonight Show” Uni Revue they’re serving up now. They have talent, but lack imagination.

  27. garry August 5, 2011 at 3:51 pm -

    Or what about bringing Back Comedy Inc?

    Bring Back Comedy Inc: The Late Shift

  28. DAN August 5, 2011 at 3:28 pm -

    i like the renovators but i am so fed up with the challenges that i now IQ the episode and watch it after it has finished so that i can skip through all the challenge crap they should have made so it is only showing them working on thier houses with out all this challenge crap

  29. MuchoTB August 5, 2011 at 2:47 pm -

    I predicted last week that Hamish and Andy would drop to 1.1 million…looks like it dropped even more.

    Australia is in need of a good comedy variety show but these guys are not it. Bring on the Chaser lads!

  30. MJR August 5, 2011 at 2:26 pm -

    Great ro see Renovators over 1 m,good show and high production values.Hopefully all up from here
    No crappy game show stunts with Ed Phillips like the block.
    No need for tacky stunts.
    Just let the guys renovate and get on with it.

  31. effdee August 5, 2011 at 2:08 pm -

    Hamish & Andy please go back to radio…
    That’s where all your idiot fans are!

  32. John August 5, 2011 at 1:08 pm -

    Get Hamish and Andy off TV, Every show they have done has been terrible, this one is probably the worst.

  33. Secret Squïrrel August 5, 2011 at 12:50 pm -

    @Ja’ime – so, a show increases its ratings to over a million and you think that it’s tanking? What’s more, you say that it makes you happy. Twice the fool.

  34. Allie August 5, 2011 at 12:49 pm -

    400K drop for Hamish and Andy, that is just over 25% of its original audience last week. Nine will be hitting the panic button very shortly, methinks as it is clearly tanking.

  35. francis August 5, 2011 at 12:23 pm -

    umm the renovators is not tanking ja’mie.

    their ratings went up on thursday night and they cracked the 1 mill mark.

    it’s going higher and higher. just takes a bit to get into it.

  36. Jerome August 5, 2011 at 11:44 am -

    more like Hamish&Andys Crap Year. some of those studio bits were painful. no attempt made to improve from last week. it was very brave of them to put the twitter tag on screen to encourage discussion after the lashing it gave them last week.

    The pre-recorded bits are good though, just goes to show how wrong the base format of the show is.

  37. col August 5, 2011 at 11:07 am -

    I said to my friends lets watch hamish & andy and give it a go , 5mins later we are watching The Renovators , thats slowly getting there , death knell for the amos and andy show.

  38. Rob August 5, 2011 at 11:07 am -

    Looks like Hamish & Andy’s loss was literally Renovators’ gain.

  39. Veronica August 5, 2011 at 10:50 am -

    Renovators aint great… 2.2 million into 1 million is poor retention.
    H&A was a great improvement last night. Wingman & Roller Derby were stitch inducing…but seriously sort out your studio bits. Looks like seven are just laying down on Thursdays.

  40. Evan August 5, 2011 at 10:44 am -

    Ratings for Masterchef this year are really down on last year – I wonder if they’ll get anywhere near a national audience of 3 million on Sunday night?
    Probably a good sign for The Renovators that they passed 1 million viewers last night – not a bad series, it takes a while to get into, but its production values are superior to those of Masterchef.
    Hamish/Andy: I’ve always thought they were vastly overrated, and not half as funny as they think they are.

  41. steve sydney August 5, 2011 at 10:17 am -

    Ouch for Hamish and Andy

    Yay for The Renovators!!

    It’s funny because my Foxtel IQ ran out of disk space and deleted my recording of H&A.. looks like i didn’t miss much

  42. Jarred August 5, 2011 at 10:08 am -

    Big drop for Hamish & Andy, that was over 1.4mil last week. I must admit having watched both episodes that last nights was pretty flat, it was one of those cringe episodes where things were meant to be funny but they just fell flat. The Ultimate Wingman segment was funny though, the rest was lame.

  43. Rutzie August 5, 2011 at 9:29 am -

    A massive 400,000 drop in viewers for Gap Year. I wasn’t expecting that big a drop. The video packages this week were great but the whole segment about bed bugs and the James Franco portal bit were way off the mark. Less chat more video packages please.

  44. ryan August 5, 2011 at 4:00 am -

    will be good to see everyone back on the mc set 2mrw, looks like it will be a laugh like last yr.

  45. Ja'mie August 4, 2011 at 10:07 pm -

    So glad The Renovators is tanking!
