    Ok, can someone explain to me that if AFL is Ten’s best performer why they’re getting rid of it off the network for 2012. It’s not like there’s going to be something else to replace it that’s going to outrate it.

  2. Mad Max September 12, 2011 at 10:16 am -

    Do the audience figures drop for X Factor when the audition part is over?

  3. dturbo September 12, 2011 at 1:07 am -

    Lol at TEN! Is there anything worth watching on any of their 3 channels? You get the idea that they’re better off simply turning off the lights and shutting the network down. Well done David Mott. Great strategy.

  4. deedeedragons September 12, 2011 at 12:22 am -

    Seven has won. The bad news about that is they don’t really need to fast track anything.

  5. Guy September 11, 2011 at 10:41 pm -

    Wow. Seven is really flying at the moment. Nothing they do is going wrong. They are just the dominant network now. I don’t even think an Olympic stint is going to get Nine over the line next year and Big Brother? Seriously? No way. It will probably do gangbusters now i said that but it got awful. I am a fan of it but i was a fan of the early few seasons. After the year Reggie won i pretty much didn’t like it anymore.

  6. David Knox September 11, 2011 at 8:51 pm -

    7:30 Sunday. Check ICE Guide or Advance Guides, both available on this site.

  7. Montanna September 11, 2011 at 8:47 pm -

    What night is wild boys on ???

  8. P September 11, 2011 at 8:03 pm -

    Seven on a roll!!

    Someone should consider a reboot of A Country Practice. Would be a ratings winner I think.

  9. J Bar September 11, 2011 at 7:19 pm -

    Seven had twelve of the top fourteen shows. Wow.

  10. Cooky September 11, 2011 at 3:24 pm -

    @MillerT1, yep that figure is impressive, but not unexpected. Just think what Seven’s share would’ve been if the Rugby League finals hadn’t been on Sat night.

    Usually the RL finals would prop up Nine’s chances of winning the week, but even that won’t help.

  11. Craig September 11, 2011 at 2:16 pm -

    So Top Gear didn’t even make the top 100 shows, no surprise here. And in the end Seven easily beat Nine. Will they have any luck with Charlies Angles or the other new shows they are promising to be ‘coming soon’?

  12. Andrew September 11, 2011 at 1:48 pm -

    Ten seem to be making up some ground. Surely things can only get better for them once Renovators is done. When is this show going to wrap up?

  13. MillerT1 September 11, 2011 at 1:04 pm -

    32.6%. That is Seven’s highest weekly share in ratings survey this year.

  14. Kieran September 11, 2011 at 12:47 pm -

    While CoW has relatively poor figures (less than 1mil), TEN have found themselves a winner! I’m sure it will grow and grow

  15. Cookie September 11, 2011 at 12:05 pm -

    Wow The Renovators coming in at 86th for it’s Sunday episode
