    It was a bit disappointing that Doctor Who came one place behind Knowing as that movie was depressing.

  2. Jezza October 9, 2011 at 6:09 pm -

    @ craig….you totally underestimate the average viewer, no one just sticks with one channel for the sake of it, they weigh up what is on and then pick and choose. Ch7 have only done well this year because ch9 & 10 have been so appallingly bad. When you get bloggers on here pointing out their bleeding obvious errors, you know they will be in trouble

  3. D@GP October 9, 2011 at 4:34 pm -

    The movie Knowing was actually filmed in Melbourne. Agree, the plot is a real downer, and this is obviously one of many that Cage has done solely for the pay packet.

  4. Harry October 9, 2011 at 3:10 pm -

    Meh Im starting to think everyone with a ratings box is a 7 diehard. Seriously. They can put on a documentary about how paint dries and the whole of Australia will apparently watch.

  5. juan October 9, 2011 at 2:53 pm -

    Thanks David but can you also please put how many watched it in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth Thanks!

  6. craig October 9, 2011 at 2:49 pm -

    @ MuchoTB

    The Knowing Movie didn’t perform good because of people getting stuck watching it, It’s because people are just Stupid because Oh I Love Channel 7!!! im just going to Watch whatever is on Channel 7 so just to make them Freaking Win the Night and the Week!!
    Thats what always happens they put Channel 7 on and don’t even watch whats on, they just leave it there all Bl***y Night So They Can Win!!!

  7. David Knox October 9, 2011 at 2:40 pm -

    29,000.

  8. juan October 9, 2011 at 2:36 pm -

    David can you please tell the ratings for the FIFA World Cup Qualifier Match between Chile and Argentina on SBS Live at 10am Thanks!

  9. MuchoTB October 9, 2011 at 1:56 pm -

    Knowing is a terrible film, I’m surprised 700,000 people got suckered into watching it. And what’s with all the “angels” in the film being white men? Racist much?

  10. Frankie October 9, 2011 at 1:45 pm -

    Thanks Joe, only on in town, will probably head to the local for the Rugby anyway, just be nice to have anther option.

  11. David Knox October 9, 2011 at 1:09 pm -

    Thanks, but no.

  12. D@GP October 9, 2011 at 12:52 pm -

    Hey David – congratulations on 200 contributing posts in this section of your excellent blog.

    Is this the first time for 200 posts in the one week?

  13. Joe October 9, 2011 at 12:47 pm -

    Correction to my below comment* it was Ireland V Wales that was on before Nine News not the England match! Melbournes ratings were okay but 13k in Adelaide is terrible

  14. Joe October 9, 2011 at 12:45 pm -

    Oh dear those ratings for the RWC in Adelaide and Melbourne are nothing short of awful! Especially for Melbourne with its population and also the lead in to Nine News. 51k for Perth is a good number though.

    Frankie where do you live? Melbourne? If so there are various venues around there showing the SANFL GF through satelite. Go onto the SANFL’s Facebook page if you want to find out where

  15. Frankie October 9, 2011 at 12:18 pm -

    Got a pleasant surprise seeing the Chris Mainwaring match on 7mate in Melbourne last night. One last bit of footy for the year. Shame the ABC doesn’t put the SANFL GF on anymore.

  16. Allie October 9, 2011 at 11:44 am -

    @TVLuva, agreed. ACA has stunk to high heaven for many years now. Lame stories poorly reported, very bad quality “current affairs” (I use that term ironically) and as boring as. Today Tonight is at least a bit more interesting and I like their reporters better.

  17. John October 9, 2011 at 9:07 am -

    Shame on the ABC for dropping Collectors especially when the show is replaced by My Family the wost “comedy”to come out of Britain in years. I note that Collectors had better ratings than this drivel.

  18. col October 8, 2011 at 7:25 pm -

    @paul , i agree , a few weeks ago they had the pizza challenge to see what was the quickest way to order , online or via phone.It was just a rehash of what pizza tastes the best , Pizza Hut , Dominoes , Eagle Boys and Crust ,i swear it was trhe same footage.I tell ya ,it wasnt supreme viewing.

  19. Cookie October 8, 2011 at 4:51 pm -

    David do you know what network has I Hate My Teenage Daughter & Last Man Standing

  20. TvLuva October 8, 2011 at 4:29 pm -

    @Paul

    ACA is a stinker no matter what story they run. And thats not to say its direct competitor is much better. ACA treat the viewer like their a complete idiot- example? About 3 weeks ago they ran a promo screeming along the lines of “We compare all mobile phones and all plans, and have exclusive deals just for you” After watching this story, they talked about 2 plans (there are hundreds of plans) from 3 service providers (There are at least 11 service providers), and mentions about 2 or 3 phones. There was no exclusive deal. That was the last straw for me. I could give you and anyone else numerous more examples of how idiotic this program has become if anyone would like them.

  21. James October 8, 2011 at 3:44 pm -

    Thanks A! I was just scrolling looking for The Fast and Furious. I didn’t know it was titled One at the Movies first. My bad!

  22. Peter October 8, 2011 at 3:16 pm -

    How did the NBL Season Opener (Melbourne Tigers v Sydney Kings) rate ? The delayed telecast aired on ONE at 10.40pm after the movie

  23. Eric Forman October 8, 2011 at 2:37 pm -

    The How To episode of Renovators did better than the normal one! That’s a change.

  24. paul October 8, 2011 at 1:22 pm -

    Did anybody watch ACA last night? I’m interested to know what story they ran to earn such a switchoff. It must’ve been a real stinker

  25. Number1 October 8, 2011 at 1:11 pm -

    Am I reading it correct that Seven News Sydney won! That’s pretty good news for them.

  26. A. October 8, 2011 at 1:09 pm -

    @ Joe

    It was No. 43 on the list and got 201,000 total .

  27. Joe October 8, 2011 at 12:05 pm -

    What did Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift rate on One last night David? Thanks

  28. A. October 8, 2011 at 11:34 am -

    I’ll admit I enjoyed Person of Interest a lot last night. I’m bummed out they have it against Castle. ‘Cos it’s probably too much to hope for the Friday night replays every week even late at night. Although please not against Fringe repeats. BTW I noticed the Harry Potter end credits were intact as far as I could tell.

  29. Smith October 8, 2011 at 8:57 am -

    Agree that renovators was watchable and the judges helping out was a point of difference from say the block when they just strut down the street at the end of each week but is this enough to separate it from the pack? I would suggest that auctioning the houses is just falling back into expected territory. All the challenges and eliminations have seen this show fail. Once again who wants to buy a house that they have seen slapped together under ridiculous time constraints?

  30. A. October 8, 2011 at 3:17 am -

    @ Secret Squirrel

    SBS World News is excellent although I try to catch it earlier if I can. On Babylon 5 did you get to the third or fourth season? As that’s where it truly took off. I’ll admit the first season was more miss than hit (it did have some hits though ) and the second season liked to have more conspiracies than the X-Files as well as reverse expectations and conventions. By basically starting optimistically and ending pessimistically. But the third season finally had the characters do something about their problems. That’s why I loved it. I warn you the fifth season suffers from too much telepaths mainly because JMS wrapped the series up the previous year due to thinking it was going to get cancelled. But watch the last episode of the fifth as that was made in the fourth season. But only if you’ve watched up to season 5 .

  31. ryan October 8, 2011 at 12:20 am -

    Tonight’s 2 eps of the renovators were just what the show should be about! All we saw tonight were the renovators renovating their houses, we saw living rooms, backyards, kitchens and so on tonight on the show and we even got to see the judges getting into it and helping which brings a more family feel to the show. The only thing i would change is the eliminations

  32. benny October 8, 2011 at 12:03 am -

    This Tuesday will be the last episode of joy of set which was tweeted by Warwick Capper on twitter… Which will be replaced with survivor, 2 broke girls or tbbt at 9pm

  33. Secret Squïrrel October 7, 2011 at 10:34 pm -

    @A. – thanks. In general I do like SF but I’m picky. Just because something has spaceships or time-travel doesn’t necessarily make it watchable for me – it still has to have good writing and acting.

    I used to watch a bit of ST:NG and Babylon 5 first time around but neither were essential viewing for me. The trouble is that Big Love starts at 10:00 not 10:30. I’m watching a bit of TV not on TV at the mo’ (eg Fringe!) and don’t really want to add to my list but thanks for the tip. I forgot that World News is on at 9:30 so I’ll just watch that. It’s better than the others anyway.

  34. Craig October 7, 2011 at 9:20 pm -

    @ompman – I think you mean Unforgettable, caught some of it from what I recorded, I’m not hooked and don’t know if I’ll be back. IMO it will probably be shifted to 9:30 within a few weeks.

  35. Saz October 7, 2011 at 8:53 pm -

    Amazing Race suffered because of the timeslot – it started at 9:45pm and finished at 11:45pm. Surely if there is a double episode like that they can put it on a 8:30pm and revert back to 9:30pm for single episodes.

  36. ompman October 7, 2011 at 7:40 pm -

    unforgiven was hopeless

  37. A. October 7, 2011 at 5:03 pm -

    @ D@GP

    Thanks for the Person of Interest info. I hope I can see it.

    @ Secret Squirrel

    Do you like sci-fi because Star Trek : The Next Generation is on Eleven on Thursdays and is good usually most weeks plus soon will get to its best years of the third and fourth seasons.

  38. TVluva October 7, 2011 at 4:39 pm -

    I was just listening to hamish and Andy on the radio for the first time. I now fully realize why their tv ratings were declining each and every week they were on. The amount of fake laughter and forced/flat jokes these 2 clowns conjure up is only rivaled by the other clowns at the today show. Simply boring, self indulgent, fake and pathetic.

  39. samo October 7, 2011 at 2:14 pm -

    7 ya cant have amazing race finishing at 11.40pm,…hopeless..if you insisit in putting it on at 9.30 then one episode only …fools…..

  40. Secret Squïrrel October 7, 2011 at 12:55 pm -

    The Slap was great last night. I wanted to smack that kid too. It was a jarring comparison to have the noticeably poorer Crownies follow. I thought I’d give it another go while waiting for Big Love but couldn’t last the thirty minutes. Actually turned over to Nine to have a look at Unforgettable. It was horrid. I think the TV will just be off from 9:30-10:00 next Thursday.

    Big Love was good tho’. As this season is the last it looks like they’ll be going out with a bang.

    D@GP – argh! Was looking fwd to roasted Shat (you know what I mean). I guess Nine feel that they want to try and give more people a look at Prime Suspect since it didn’t exactly set the ratings on fire. I wonder how well that strategy actually works? I certainly won’t be one of them.

    @JB – I think both Fri and Sat have lower overall ratings than Thu which kinda makes sense when you think about it.

  41. John from Sunny Coast October 7, 2011 at 12:36 pm -

    Without doubt the best Aussie drama on TV this year. Makes stuff like Rafters and Underbelly look very ordinary. Absolutely brilliant! Thank you ABC.

  42. Kenny October 7, 2011 at 11:52 am -

    @JB – Neighbours won’t be axed, even if it doesn’t run in Oz. They make way too much from it in sales to other countries.

  43. Nik C October 7, 2011 at 11:52 am -

    @ mv Rush isn’t made for imbeciles! I think sometimes it is to challenging for some Ch10 viewers which is why it doesnt rate well!
    But generally I agree ABC and SBS do make great dramas!

  44. Rowie October 7, 2011 at 11:51 am -

    @JB – Wednesday’s H&A/Neighbours UK ratings from Digital Spy:

    Over on Channel 5, Neighbours appealed to 676k (9.5%) at 1.45pm and 1.07m (7.0%) at 5.30pm, while Home and Away interested 771k (4.4%) at 6pm and 486k (2.5%) for the first-look screening on 5* at 6.30pm.

  45. D@GP October 7, 2011 at 11:51 am -

    9 has scheduled repeat screenings of the first two eps of Person of Interest (the show Lost creator JJ Abrams is involved with – and a damn good one) to run tonight following the movie “Harry Potter & the Half-Wit Prince”.

    Website says ep 1 starts @ 10.43 and ep 2 will end @ 12.31… but I’ll set the recorder until 1.30 am just to be sure …

    David – has 9 bothered to give you any update on the Shatner Roast being bumped to where and when?

  46. opti October 7, 2011 at 11:49 am -

    I didn’t find Rush last night as good as the last few weeks…

  47. JB October 7, 2011 at 11:28 am -

    Thursday may be the lowest ratings night but i think it’s got the best shows. And all Aussie line up too. Rush was brilliant again. Best season yet so shame about ratings.
    The Slap was great as well, very good ratings first up. Crownies got higher numbers at a later timeslot. Prob due to lead in.

    Low start for Amazing Race.

    Anyone know how H&A and Neighbours rate in the UK. H&A rates extremely well here still, but it’s quite ridiculous Ten would keep Neighbours just so less than 300,000 people can watch on Eleven. They really should have put it on Ten at 6pm and have that a go before moving to Eleven. I would hope they axe Neighbours before Rush.

  48. Kenny October 7, 2011 at 10:59 am -

    Normally by this time this week I would have watched Dateline, The Slap, Crownies – but as they were already promoted last week for tonight on SBS2 ABC2 that’s my Friday night schedule. That’s the problem with these “encores” (read “reruns”) – they eat into the main channel figures so much that the day-to-day figures are becoming very distorted.

  49. mv October 7, 2011 at 10:49 am -

    Loved The Slap!! only ch 2 and SBS do aussie drama that doesn’t treat you like an imbecile! Well done Ch 2 cannot wait for next episode.

  50. steve sydney October 7, 2011 at 10:45 am -

    Alright so I know they were really crowded time slots but really, people must be out doing their Xmas shopping early because nothing was a stand out ratings wise.

    Rush is getting better and better per week yet the ratings are going down??? TAR wasn’t off to a good start either. I hope Seven don’t shift it off to 7mate again

  51. Tony Bee October 7, 2011 at 9:40 am -

    The first ep of The Slap was excellent. See, some Aussie drama is worth watching!

  52. The Other Adam October 7, 2011 at 9:38 am -

    It’s a shame Twentysomething doesn’t even make the ratings list. It’s a fantastic little Aussie comedy !!!

  53. A. October 7, 2011 at 9:23 am -

    Thanks David for the Thursday figures. :)
