    I offer the daily top 50 and a selection of shows that make the top 50-100…. all for free. I don’t mind checking the odd extra show on request but if you want anything more consistent you should subscribe to OzTAM.

    Sorry, just realised I was posting in Wk34, not the newer Wk35 :oops:

    “Bugger” on the numbers. :( Any chance of getting them in upcoming weeks?

  4. David Knox August 25, 2011 at 10:13 am -

    Sorry no.

  5. Lennier August 25, 2011 at 10:12 am -

    David, would you happen to have the historic (back to Week 20) viewership for Insiders on ABC24 (both the AM and PM showings)?

    Cheers.

    Suits is the best series I’ve seen this year – thoroughly engaging show with great writing and charming characters. I’ve already seen the first eight episodes of season one. Definitely one worth tuning into!

  7. DansDans August 21, 2011 at 2:46 pm -

    Those AFL numbers are complete and utter rank – does anyone think this has something to do with the fact they ditched the HD off ONE (where combined the AFL numbers were close to 800,000) or the fact that some of the games so far this year have been horrid – beside, who the hell wants to watch Collingwood…

  8. Cam Reed August 21, 2011 at 2:15 pm -

    Agree Secret Squïrrel.

    That doesn’t help with a number of viewers either, especially when you have a 9:30pm start and that 2 hours takes you to 11:30pm on a Monday night, you are being asked to give a new show a lot (sure some may at 8:30-10:30pm like when Body Of Proof started but 9:30pm is really pushing it for those without recording devices).

    Would have expected something a bit bigger for Harry Potter, can understand Finding Nemo doing well, but Wild Hogs beating it too (even if it fun).

  10. Secret Squïrrel August 21, 2011 at 12:58 pm -

    @Cam – I would have given Suits a go but I’m put off when networks bang them out as double eps. It makes me think that they don’t have any faith in the program, plus two hours is a bit of an ask commitment-wise for something that hasn’t proven itself.

  11. Cam Reed August 21, 2011 at 12:19 pm -

    It’s a pity Suits didn’t fair so well and is now on after a double episode of Body Of Proof, as it is actually a pretty good series, though the low numbers aren’t surprising with the way Seven advertised it. It’s really nothing like the advertised “When the Suits come off, the fun begins,” that Seven showed leading up to it, the show has a lot more depth than that.

  12. catherine August 21, 2011 at 12:13 pm -

    9 will smash the ratings tonight. Final ep of the block and new underbelly

  13. DansDans August 21, 2011 at 9:43 am -

    TEN in summer mode already – 4th for the week, not looking good and sad they have to rely on their multichannels to get into 3rd (considering how poor ONE is going)

  14. cros August 20, 2011 at 11:15 pm -

    @Mate it was alright. i didn’t agree with many of their choices, especially #1. they’re replaying it tonight though.

  15. David Knox August 20, 2011 at 6:40 pm -

    Next episode is the strongest one for Crownies yet. Good time to revisit the show.

  16. moanique in brisbane August 20, 2011 at 5:25 pm -

    @ Nik C and Pete, totally agree, Crownies is really good. Best show on Thursday night

  17. David Knox August 20, 2011 at 4:24 pm -

    If you are in Sydney and Brisbane it will play after the movie tonight.

  18. Mate August 20, 2011 at 3:01 pm -

    Dam, i had no idea there was a harry potter special on nine on friday! :( was it good!?

  19. Annette August 20, 2011 at 1:09 pm -

    How long before Channel 10 realises negus and 7pm are dragging down their entire night? Two ‘Current affairs shows’ one after the other which together don’t rate as well as the strip show on the other channel. They have a strip show, all be it seriously flawed, so why not give it the best chance they can by running it at 7 and canning Negus.

  20. Jezza August 20, 2011 at 11:53 am -

    In terms of main channels, ch10 scored a stunning win over SBS on Friday night to secure fourth spot. I bet the champagne corks were popping in David Motts office when this result came in.

  21. Allie August 20, 2011 at 11:16 am -

    @ryan, I totally agree with your criticism of The Renovators format. I have been watching the show for the last couple of week as it has grown on me, but yes, the format has major, major holes in it, which has led to a very unfair playing field. I read on this site that the format is being reviewed for 2012 season. Just as well, as it format needs a lot of work. The production values are excellent, it is more a format problem. My suggestions for 2012:-

    1. Contestants who leave the comp voluntarily should be replaced by contestants they have in reserve. It is patently unfair to expect teams with one and two members to compete with those who have full teams. Ridiculous, I can’t believe contestant substitution in this circumstance hasn’t been factored into the rules.

    2. No eliminations. By all means have the occasional challenge, but do not penalise teams by canning a contestant. Deduct $ from their budgets, restrict time at their house that week or disallow them from competing in that week’s reward challenge, but contestants should remain through the life of the contest, otherwise it becomes a farce and viewers will lose interest, big time, with these skeletion crews.

    3. Less warehouse challenges and more on-site renovation. How hard can that be.

    4. The MasterClass on Friday is excellent and I am surprised it rates so poorly. Despite that, the producers should hold their nerve on that and keep it. It is really very good.

  22. Bruce Banner August 20, 2011 at 11:13 am -

    Channel 7 won’t be happy that Home and Away came third in it’s timeslot for Friday.

  23. ryan August 20, 2011 at 2:12 am -

    Ten must have noticed the renovators format sucks! For one thing we have 6 houses with 4 contestants, now we have 1 house with 1 renovator 1 with 2 and how can the comp be fair at all with 1 person renovating a whole house? even 2 seems stupid! There should be no eliminations through the whole show, they should keep 4 people in each house right through to the end to make it even, then find out who wins most profit. Also the fact the show is called the renovators and has no renovating bar 1 ep where you see 5 mins of a working bee is just like weird as! All i wanted was to see those 6 houses being renovated 5 nights a week bar the friday ep where we learn aswell with a how to do ep. Plus another thing where they have had 3 contestants leave already which made if unfair but they didnt replace them, they’re like well fk u deal with 1 less person.. I soo hope mott changes the format.

  24. Pete August 20, 2011 at 2:07 am -

    Crownies getting better each week.

  25. Rutzie August 19, 2011 at 11:20 pm -

    Perhaps premiering a show on the main channel and then moving it to one of the multichannels the following week may become a more regular thing given the strong figures for Pawn Stars. This probably wasn’t Seven’s plan but it will be interesting to see if starts to become a tactic the networks use.

  26. Secret Squïrrel August 19, 2011 at 9:18 pm -

    @Nathan – Criminal Minds was watched by 200k more than Pawn Stars last week. I think Seven might see it differently from you.

  27. byranical August 19, 2011 at 9:07 pm -

    I just sat through Renovators ‘how to’ episode. It was completely unengaging. I have seen about half a dozen eps of this show and I’ve never seen an episode where they are renovating. And the preview for Sunday’s show is a challenge where they have to build a tower from lego. WTF? I’m sorry but this show is just awful.

  28. Joe August 19, 2011 at 6:44 pm -

    Nine dominating on the main channel for Thursday’s but look at 7’s multichannels! Far out!!

  29. MuchoTB August 19, 2011 at 6:22 pm -

    I’m not a fan of Criminal Minds or its spinoff, but it outrated Pawn Stars by 200k from last week and doubled Law and Order: LA

    Thursday nights seem to be the dead zone for TV, I kicked back with Breaking Bad and True Blood instead…

  30. Nathan from MVTee August 19, 2011 at 5:37 pm -

    mmmm good idea 7, drop a great show like Pawn Stars for Criminal Minds and it failed! Sucked in

  31. Nik C August 19, 2011 at 12:35 pm -

    I am really enjoying Crownies. It is well scripted, some of the one liners are excellent and subtle. You have to make sure you are paying attention. I am enjoying the cast too. Well Done ABC :)

  32. Tristan August 19, 2011 at 12:34 pm -

    not sure the renovators/modern family mix is working!

  33. steve sydney August 19, 2011 at 12:22 pm -

    Modern Family repeats aren’t working TEN

    It’s on overload status. Enough!

  34. MuchoTB August 19, 2011 at 12:10 pm -

    I don’t watch The Block (or any other stripped reality series), but why is it Sunday and Monday’s episodes rate 1.8+ million, but Tuesday through Thursday it only gets 1.3?

    Yes, 1.3 million is a good result. But that’s half a million people who don’t bother watching it later in the week

  35. smiley_mick August 19, 2011 at 11:42 am -

    Incredible that Channel 7 rated 6.8% behind Channel 9 on Thursday, yet the strength of their multichannels (7TWO and 7mate) nearly lifted them to an overall win.
