    Correct. It was a day late this week due to NSW public holiday but they fit the same calendar as Free to Air weeks.

  4. courtney October 4, 2011 at 5:06 pm -

    So does that mean when you post this to us on Mondays you don’t count yesterday’s rating that is Sunday on this one, but next week it will? Is that how it works?

  5. David Knox October 4, 2011 at 4:55 pm -

    Sun – Sat.

  6. courtney October 4, 2011 at 4:32 pm -
