  1. So I guess this is it now forever. No more ratings :'( May I ask why you can’t publish ratings like other certain websites do? They publish the top 20 main FTA channel shows ratings, then the top 20 FTA multichannels shows, and finally the top 20 pay TV show ratings. Why can’t you David?

  2. @Jezza, are you cloning yourself? The world needs more of you!

    PS: the ratings section is now a very sad place to be. I used to love coming here to bog myself down in the minutiae of daily ratings life, listen to the arguments back and forth, occasionally watch someone slap another down … [sigh] … oh how I wish for the old days.

  3. Will this site get its act together. This site has made the same mistake twice in a row: two weeks!

    Swift and Shift Couriers is axed. It went off the air a few weeks ago…however this site keeps confusing it with Housos….I think?????????

    Also, even the rating figure was wrong last week…another site claimed Housos got a higher rating than you guys stated.

    Not happy!!!!!

  4. Jezza (the one from Tassie)

    Yeah I’m the other Jezza and I was the one who asked about the Celebrity Apprentice ratings and mentioned about Regional TAM. No impersonation of the other Jezza, just pure coincidence lol.

  5. Looks like the wheels have fallen off the wagon. You guys probably need to look at this as an opportunity to get a hobby. The ratings system is completely meaningless and if anything is a reason why television is so messed up now. When a supposedly million viewers is some how not enough you know that things have gotten very stupid. The situation was bound to get more stupid. We do appear to have monumental idiots in charge of everything.

  6. @ Jezza

    You could add something to your blog name like ” (the original ) ” or the State you come from.

    @ Chris (any of them )

    You too could add a letter or State or something to distinguish yourselves eg. Chris C . But they’re options obviously .

  7. Ah I see, it’s the Monday before last Monday. I get it now lol, come on, resolve this situation as quickly as you can if you can, or else I’ll only find out about the ratings from Regional TAM first lol.

  8. Do you know how Celebrity Apprentice Australia did on Monday night, because it doesn’t appear to be in the ratings for Monday for some reason. I assume there would have been at least a million people watching. I heard people on the bus here in Tassie talking about Celebrity Apprentice it’s that popular. I hadn’t heard the same talk about Masterchef or Australia’s Got Talent or anything like that before lol.

  9. I hope this website is quickly resolved. I don’t like Throng.. it’s too messy and hard to look at. This website is much more cleaner, and less complicated. Needless to say, we like to see more than the top 20 programs!! Please be back soon :)

  10. @ Michael & David

    I’m very glad they’ll be around even if late. Although does that mean Week 43 will be around longer than usual? By the way most of my suggestion was a joke to highlight that there are no up-to-date ratings at the moment. Hence: dog poo. You can’t understand silliness at 5 – 6 in the morning? Plus I like this place and for other discussions like what was good to see for the day or week. I didn’t just view it as a ratings thread. Although I did take advantage of that too. Thank you for all the helpful people here as well.

  11. @ A., isn’t that what the TV Lounge is for? It’s difficult to talk about ratings in a ratings thread without ratings. Didn’t someone mention that David can post the ratings after one week has elapsed? So he’ll be able to post last Tuesday’s figures, this Wednesday morning? I’m sure he’ll keep the ratings thread going though, even if the information is a bit dated…

  12. @ David

    As I mentioned before I hope there is at least a Week 44 even without the numbers. Hopefully with links also for a place for people to talk almost like always but without the numbers. Although what will there be instead of the numbers? A picture of a giant dog turd? Too naughty? Sorry feeling silly.

  13. Too bad if there is or isn’t a Friday report as it probably wouldn’t be able to mention The Devil Wears Prada and how successful that was. Again. Though speaking for myself it was a bummer there was no Terra Nova repeat as I would of watched it. Instead I was watching the end of Superman Returns on Ch 99 .

    I don’t know if people are still coming to this section but because I watched GO! last night including Fringe. Thank you for not editing out the opening credits or titles. Although why one of the end credits was seems weird. They’re showing the first Lord of the Rings film tonight at 8.30pm. I’ll admit I love Lord of the Rings and 8.30pm Saturday is perfect for me usually. But how many times a year is it going to be shown? Although maybe the teenagers might not mind it. But wouldn’t they have the DVD or Blu-ray? Also if you show them next year can’t they be shown in the proper order over a three week period? If Nine have the rights.

  14. OzTam and their accomplices need to understand that around the world dictators who treat their fellow citizens with contempt by withholding information to prevent clarity often meet a grisly end. I came to this site a couple of years ago when I was searching for tv ratings numbers. The ‘new tv order’ that covers up the transparency of tv ratings not only prevents informed debate based on facts, but also allows the incompetent fools who continue to screw things up and claim success, somewhere to hide.

    David, it is unusual for you to be so silent on something like this, I am guessing that there must be some sort of heated debate or evaluation going on behind the scenes. Your profile has been on the rise in recent years with the increasing spots on Jon Faine in Melb….lets hope it continues

  15. @James, agree with you about the Throng website. Too chaotic and poorly set out for my tastes, it hurts my eyes. This site is easier to read and far superior, in my very humble opinion.

  16. David,
    The people who contribute to your site most certainly represent a cross section of the TV viewing public and their views and opinions quite often cause lively and at times heated discussions and disagreements on a regular basis. However, I believe I speak for us all when I say everyone of us, despite the differences, appreciate your efforts which have been responsible for providing a first class service.

    Why Oztam have reacted the way they have is something only they would most likely know and whose decision it was to instigate the changes may forever remain a mystery, although the circumstantial evidence points to the wonder boy that was responsible for OneTel. I read your news item where he claims 10 consistently outrates 9 after 7pm. He is either ignorant or a teller of porkies, as this is simply not the case. Coincidently, with only the top 20 being published, the truth can be well hidden and kept from the majority.

    All that being said, What are your plans for the future? There are many, many of us left in Limbo anxious to learn where this site goes from here and whatever you decide you will have the backing of the contributing masses.

  17. David why dont you add the ratings from OzTAM in there new format viewers of your site want the figures that OzTAM does offer as little as they may be…

  18. Thanks David I guess there were so many stories I must of missed it. I thought you’d just copy and paste a link if there was one. So interesting choice. Sorry if I was a bother.

  19. david could you please give us an announcement on the future TVTonight ratings and maybe post information on OzTams changes. its very fustrating not knowing. and i dont understand why OzTAM has to change all this shit around. we want more than the top 20 ratings figures of the previous evening.

  20. The Other Adam
