    I would quietly suggest that their alot of Kiwis residing in Australia. The TV ratings for the RL grandfinal will be strong. And the international audience(especially New Zealand) will be immense!

  2. tv – “Doctor who’s numbers are falling because the last three episodes were just filler episodes”

    To be fair ratings for the previously screened episode The God Complex is actually an impreovement from the previous episode The Girl Who Waited.

  3. The ratings for Saturday has prove that viewers prefer Doctor Who as their time travelling adventures over the Back to the Future movies although Part 2 did beat Doctor Who Confidential Cutdown.

  4. The NRL won its timeslot in Melbourne. Despite 3 decades of live AFL in the Sydney market the top ratings for the Swines was 136,000 for the year despite 100 times the prmotion.

    What will nine’s excuse for shunting the storm?

    Lol to those AFL lackies.

  5. Lucky Carathanassis

    Impressive ratings figures for the NRL again for Saturday night.
    Keep in mind that the major regionals are not in these figures which are dominated by NRL viewers.
    Interesting to see whether the NRL grandfinal gets the Australia wide live TV coverage that the AFL will receive next weekend.?

  6. Doctor who’s numbers are falling because the last three episodes were just filler episodes, even next weeks episode is filler until the last few minutes after the main story ends. The second half of the season is really two episodes and and 3 minutes, you could have discarded the others and not missed a thing.

  7. 9 would have been hoping Melbourne would get through to the league grand final!! Hahaha suffer 9. Speaking of the joke that is League, how does a team from New Zealand play in Australias “National Rugby League”? Ps… Looking forward to 9’s fasttracking this week to be miseable failures.

  8. I think Doctor Who did a lot better Sunday nights, viewer numbers were alot better than Saturday. I also think alot of people are taping and watching later too.

  9. I wonder if Doctor Who has a large timeshift audience. No doubt people prefer to watch the football finals live. I watched Doctor Who after the football final.

  10. David,

    I was just referring the Friday night NRL final as GEM was showing the rugby union at the same time. Thanks for the clarification.

    Looks like the Storm-Warriors game easily won it’s timeslot in Melbourne.

  11. What another pathetic joke of a 9 news story. Practically a 2minute advert for the upcoming turkey “charlies angels”. How are they alowed to get away with this? Sickening.

  12. But how could it be Live! David if they showed the Rugby WC Game Live at 6:30 and the NRL Game started at 7:30 im so confused!?? If they showed the NRL Game Live can you tell me the rating for it?? Thanks!!

    • Ok slight clarification, but here are the times for Melb:
      Australia v USA: Friday Live at 6.00pm on GEM
      New Zealand v France: Saturday Live at 6.00pm on GEM
      Melbourne Storm v New Zealand Warriors: Saturday Live at 7.30pm on Nine

  13. Great ratings for the Emmys. next year it should stay on 11 but given a 7:30 slot and better promotion and it might give 11 a very strong nightly share. Ratings suggest people don’t care it was 4 days late.

  14. I look forward to it David. :)

    Speaking for myself I didn’t mind Eleven putting the Emmy Awards on 9.30pm Friday as I could see it. I wouldn’t be able to on Monday. Besides 4.5 is a high figure for a multi-channel. It’s not like they put it on Ten. I’ll admit I also liked seeing the promos. They had a new Smallville one plus they repeated the one mentioning a lot of shows including Ringer on Ten.

  15. Might add, the rating for the Emmys were more than solid, they were extraordinarily good. Eleven came second out of the multichannels because of it and SYTYCD, but the latter program had a much better timeslot.

    It’ll definitely return next year to free to air, perhaps on the main channel.

  16. Hey David what was the rating for the NRL Game in melbourne, adelaide and perth on Gem or was it not at all shown in those cities live?

    And can you please tell me the rating for the Scooby Doo Movie on GO! Cheers Mate!!!

  17. [email protected]

    at least the Block gives you a break from that annoying Masterchef format…

  18. Sticking the Emmy award on ch11 5 days late was never going to work. TEN should have used the show Monday night on the main channel to then promote Glee and other shows starting soon!

  19. 807,000 viewers in Melbourne for the AFL preliminary final is very good in the multi channel environment (it was slightly up on last year’s 801,000 when Collingwood beat Geelong on their way to the premiership). I was at the game and, as a Hawthorn fan, you can’t imagine my disappointment when the final siren sounded.
    But David, can you tell me how the game rated on 7mate in Sydney and Brisbane? Thanks.

  20. I’d be just curious to know how old are all these people who supposedly are watching and liking Rush? Certainly not >21 I would imagine. I’m sorry but the ratings for that show speak for themselves.

  21. @Goonies, point taken, but The Renovators already has several points of difference from The Block, even if the poorly formulated elimination format is canned, as many bloggers here have called for, should it screen in 2012. For one, the teams are not made up of intensely irritating, wannabe media stars couples. The teams are made up of renovation experienced strangers brought together for the show, so the skill set and dynamic of the teams is very different and nowhere near as irritating and amateur hour as TB. Secondly, the host is much better than Scott Cam or Shelley Craft, who rate of the scale when it comes to annoyance factor. I wasn’t taken with Brendan Moar at first but now I think he is great. Scott Cam and Shelley Craft don’t come within a bull’s roar of him. Thirdly, on TR, the teams are regularly judged by a panel of three experts – The Block does not have this element.

  22. Don’t think Renovators needs to be like The Block. I think the Block is absolute crap. They pick annoying couples, have terrible and annoying hosts in Scott Cam and Shelley Craft. I think Renovators is far better, great casting, great hosts, but the format is a little flawed. It is stupid renovators spend so much time on a house, and then switch last minute. And yes it is ridiculous that it got to the stage where one house had 1 person, while another had 4. Always knew it would happen, but doesn’t make it right.
    3-4 people at each house, challenges each week for prizes, but actually show the renovations each night, teams share house profit, with one team winning grand prize. Simple.

  23. re: The Renovators. it would make much more sense if all the team members were eliminated that the house just goes to auction unfinished. throughout the season that is what the contestants appeared to think the deal was. i clearly remember peter mentioning that if he gets eliminated the half done house would go up for auction half done again.

    the way the final prize money is done sends the message that the show is not meant to be any form of credible renovation show, its all just a silly game. and now with this twist i don’t think it can even take that much credit.

  24. Is it just me or did anyone else think that some of the ‘geeks’ on B&TG last night were actors hired to pretend to be geeks? Whilst I appreciate that there are such things as ‘geeks’ are there really guys who walk around in clothes that seem to have been deliberately picked to mis-match, wearing glasses that can be found in your grandfather’s cupboard and letting their hair (both on their head and face) grow wildly out of control? And how fake was the guy with the ridiculous moustache who seemed to be the biggest actor of all?? Seems to me that it’s all staged to make the inevitable “make-over episode” more dramatic. Whilst I enjoy the premise of the show, it just appeared too fake for me….

  25. If Renovators becomes more ‘like the Block’ it won’t be the Renovators!!!

    How will there be a point of difference between the two?

    RTV comps are not about sweetness and light and ‘fairness’ – it’s a competition!! Survival of the fittest and all that!

  26. @JB, couldn’t agree with you more. How bloody stupid was The Renovators last night????? Natalia has poured her heart and soul into the shop and now, just two weeks from the show’s conclusion, she is forced to swap to another house. What the????? Ludicrous, emotionally cruel and very manipulative. The biggest stumbling block of this show is the elimination format. Can it, it is not necessary!!! As you say, next year it should be based more on The Block, that is static teams of 3-4, no eliminations and competing for prizes each week. Also, it should not be “winner takes all”. The winning team should share the profits, it should not just be pocketed by one person.

  27. @ JB – the people on Renovators were always going to be moved around, it’s just the way the numbers work out.

    You have to have at least one person per house and then from there keep it as even as possible.

    None of them were given any sort of guarantee they would stay put – all this sort of stuff should be pretty obvious after 10 + years of RTV. August & Natalia said they knew they were playing a game and remindede themselves of it all the time.

  28. Man Rush was good last night! good to see it’s numbers jump nearly 100,000 on last week. I’m enjoying this season alot. Svu goes really well with rush and those 2 svu eps were great aswell, it’s so crap they have split up in the new season:(

  29. awesome. Rush picked up this week, which is great news. Another great ep. And up against the premier of Beuty & the Geek which i thought would rate so much better than that. If you get between 500,000-900,000 on Thursday you’re doing pretty well.

    Last night showed exactly why the Renovators needs a big fix if they’re gonna do it next year. To have a contestant that from the very start working on one house, suddenly forced to move to work on another house, and possibly be the last person standing at tht house even though they might have been there for just 2 weeks is a farce. Next year, no eliminations, just teams of 3-4, compete for prizes (furniture, swimming pool, solar, paint, working bees etc). The end of the series the team that wins shares the profits between them. I think it’s stupid people switch teams after putting all their effort in one house.

  30. Junior MC is not really a direct rip off as MC as they are made by different production companies which may explain why JMC had a slightly ‘nicer’ feel to it.

  31. @moanique
    I have never worked in any media of any kind. I just have a deep dislike of 9. They have just lost the plot. Ruined some of my favourite shows through over exposure, mixing in repeats with new eps, severe editing to fit more ads, sudden timeslot changes and so on. I know most networks do this, but none as much as 9 have done to the shows I chose to watch. They have treated me the viewer with utter contempt and disrespect. Then just watching a ACA promo makes my blood boil, nearly always 100% fake and misleading. Here’s just 1 example. On Tuesday they spent the whole with a promo that said “we compare all mobile phone and all plans for you with exclusive deals”. Even before seeing the rehashed story I knew they wouldn’t deliver what the promo said. If they were to compare every phone and every plan like they said they’d need hours to show all this info. They cherry picked maybe 5 plans and spoke about no phones at all, and there was no “exclusive deal”. I know today tonight does similar stuff, but I’m so disenchanted with 9 I realize it more. Also leilas insertion of her opinion at the end of a story is also very off putting, who asked her for her opinion? She just gets paid to read an autocue. As for 9 news, it’s lead story in Melbourne on Wednesday was a story on an abc satirical comedy. Is that the most important story worthy in melbourne on the 6pm bulletin?

  33. I wonder what the rating will be on saturday night for BTTF one and two , ive lost track of how many times these have been on.I gues sthey domt care as the AFL finals are on anyway.

  34. Secret Squïrrel

    Saturday might be the dullest night TV-wise but last night was the dullest week night. The TV went off after Arrested Development and didn’t come back on until Craig Ferguson.

  35. Can someone please tell me I imagined that I saw a 2.5 men ad saying Charlies final season is back on 7pm weeknights. I told you 9 would fall for the ratings trick. It comes back its a rating hit so 9 want to play it at 7pm again.

    I enjoyed Beauty and the Geek. Whats with the geek and that moustache. Anyway I reckon the beauties will put there attention on the male beauty and I can see why the poor geeks fell intimindated.

  36. I expected Beauty and the Geek to do something like 1.2 million based on the non-stop hype and ridiculous oversaturated promotion this week

    A Law and Order: SVU repeat at 10:30pm did 464k…looks like Ten are trialling the waters in the 10:30 timeslot now that they’ve axed their late news and Sports Tonight

  37. Moanique in Brisbane

    @ Get Real, in acknowledging a grammatical error, you still manage to have a go at Nine News in the process. I’m starting to think you might be an ex – Nine employee with a grudge :)

  38. scott has wings

    Hey David!!! i was wondering if you could tell me because i dont know, if you record a show from your TV either your TV has a recording device inside or you record on your Foxtel iQ or VCR, Does that still count as being watched and still gets the Rating for that Show?? Please answer if you could! Thanks!

  39. Eye spy thanks for the clarification. You’d think with that simple idiotic error I made Id be connected with 9 news in some capacity! All their junior cadet reporters seem to make these simple cock ups.

  40. serves ten right with those poor numbers for glee. they definately got what they deserved changing timeslots 100 times. same goes for modern familty and your gen, which have pretty much been ruined.

  41. @allie
    Thanks for the info. Can’t see it getting renewed when as you pointed out there are holes big enough in this show to drive a fleet of black utes through.

  42. @goonies
    Point taken but with it being a direct rip off of MC which i’m sure most of these kids would watch you can see how they have been conditioned either consciously or subconsciously to the format which is stale thanks to back to back to back programming from ten with MC, TR and now JMC. Good luck kids but look out ten, viewers are getting tired of the same old cake with different coloured icing.

  43. @Smith, when Ten’s line-up for 2012 was announced several weeks ago, it was stated that The Renovators would be returning in 2012. Given its underwhelming ratings performance, it will need a considerable revamp as it hasn’t worked and there are loads of holes in the format. I think the show has promise, but its lacklustre performance can’t be ignored. However, just because the station announced the show would go to a second season doesn’t necessarily mean it will.

  44. @ Smith – you are not really going to drag out ‘won’t somebody think of the children’ in regards to Junior MC are you?

    The same silly comments were made last year and anyone who actually watched the show would have realised instantly that all the kids are treated exceptionally well, there are no bully moments like on the adult series and every kid has a ‘safety person’ at the end of their bench.

  45. I think it’s time those ratings boxes were given new owners now…

    When the highest rated show is 1.2 million and it’s TT.. you know something’s up.

  46. @Nick – Has it been confirmed Renovators has been renewed? Latest I read was the warehouse was being demolished and having apartments built on it and if it was coming back it would be modified beyond recognition to it’s current format including a possible name change because the brand is so damaged. I can’t imagine what the ten twits are going to do if Junior MC 2 fails. The ads alone showing kids under pressure is enough to cause concern that a possible community backlash is coming on top having to endure the regurgitated format that has been beaten to a pulp by the Renovators and was preceeded by a flagging MC.

  47. Ten are in free fall, what twit renewed ‘The Renovators’?. Guys, it’s just a bland show. It’s not even a ‘so bad it’s good’ show. It’s the worst of the insults, it’s just Vanilla compared to Block-olate!

  48. Ten News is now under 500,000.

    Ten have damaged their news brand. They pad out a news bulletin to 1 and half hours and have dumped their late night news.

    Running a tv network should not be so hard! geez.
