    …and the 8pm start doesn’t help at all either. Does TBL really need an hour?

  2. Secret Squïrrel February 2, 2012 at 10:21 pm -

    @JB – I agree, it’s a great little show and deserves better but, conversely, Ten deserve shit ratings given the way that they have treated it. I have no idea why they, more than the other commercial networks, take decent high-rating programs and decided to move them to a completely different day.

    Presumably they just think that people love the shows so much that they will follow them to the new timeslot but the reality is that we are creatures of habit and often have other commitments. Tuesday was a good night for TBYG, Wednesday isn’t. I wanted to watch it but didn’t and couldn’t be arsed recording it either.

  3. Kate February 2, 2012 at 6:29 pm -

    I really wish The Good Wife would have received better ratings. Though, I must say, what kind of start time is going from 8:30 to 9:10? I’m not a regular watcher of free-to-air so I almost missed the show :(

  4. Craig(Buzz) February 2, 2012 at 4:24 pm -

    Thanks for the daily updates David always a good read

  5. Maev....Sydney February 2, 2012 at 4:01 pm -

    @ JB….I have to agree….but not only with TEN, but all channels…..the quickest way to turn viewers of….is to chop and change days and times for a program….
    We want regularity…..we want to turn on and know that the program advertised will be there….we do not want to have to work that hard, chasing around and constantly checking for udates to keep up with a particular show or series….
    We just want to be entertained….not be involved in a game of cat and mouse…
    And for goodness sake….start on the advertised time…all the time….unless there is something like serious breaking news.

  6. Ryan February 2, 2012 at 3:43 pm -

    With smart tv’s these days it’s time to intergrate our new tv sets with a ratings system that can record the infomation and send it off in the mornings. Either have an app on a smart tv for ratings or send everyone a infomation recorder if they want it. Then we could finally start to see the real reflection of Aussies viewing habbits and not this fake load of bull we have now!

  7. Jarrod February 2, 2012 at 3:12 pm -

    With the BBL and tennis finished on paytv for the summer is anyone else surprised at how poorly the live A league is rating? live prime time sport should be topping the ratings, not finishing 15th behind programs from the cartoons channels.

  8. JB February 2, 2012 at 2:31 pm -

    Those numbers for Your Gen aren’t a reflection of how bad the show is, more of how bad Ten has treated it. And it’s a shame it rates so poorly now. Still as funny as ever. Sure it had MKR and 20/20 cricket up against it last night, but it was one of Ten’s highest rating shows consistantly. Then they switched days, then again, then the timeslot, then switched days again. That’s not how you win viewers, that’s how you lose viewers. This is something Ten doesn’t understand.

  9. steve sydney February 2, 2012 at 1:41 pm -

    @Steve B
    Although ratings for The Project aren’t anywhere near spectacular.. I’m sure TEN are pleased that it’s getting at least over 100k viewers in the key market of Syd and Melb. Last night was hilarious and Tina Arena had a good chemistry with the panel.

    Although they should be careful because the more they get Hamish McDonald to fill in, the more it’s going to point out the weakness of Charlie Pickering when it comes to his interviewing style.

  10. Steve B February 2, 2012 at 12:43 pm -

    Good to see ratings starting to slowly come back for the Project.
    It’s the best format on TV imo – and so much more entertaining and informative than ACA and TT.

  11. Allie February 2, 2012 at 12:17 pm -

    @bettestreep, not only are they daily repeating EB on Gem at 4pm, but they’ve taken off The View and are repeating EB each day at 1pm on their main channel. Absolute overkill and a sure sign of desperation on Nine’s part to build an audience for this flatlining nonsense.

    Cricket is the national game, played in every state, unlike football where various codes dominate different states, that is why cricket is so popular and why it has a big, nation wide viewing audience.

  12. Secret Squïrrel February 2, 2012 at 12:10 pm -

    Well, there’s your answer, Nine. Just play EB at 10:30 every night and you’ll have a winner!

    Really, it just goes to show how rubbish the ratings system is. It’s 2012, is it not possible to have the equipment recognise when programs are actually on instead of simply recording the time and channel, and then assuming that the commercial networks broadcast according to the published guide? Of course it’s possible, but the technology is stuck in the ’90s along with most of their ideas.

  13. MillerT1 February 2, 2012 at 11:29 am -

    To get 1.5m up against the Twenty20 is big. It certainly could get much more popular than it did last year. But we do have to remember that this year’s season gets two less weeks to build an audience.

    I’m getting the feeling that the cricket went overtime and knowing the fact that rain stopped play for a while means I’m probably right. Plus as if Excess Baggage is going obtain an extra 350,000 viewers after Tuesday night.

  14. R K February 2, 2012 at 11:28 am -

    Cause Aussie like watching the grass grow….as i was told….so Cricket is popular…LOL

  15. The Other Adam February 2, 2012 at 11:22 am -

    This is why I don’t watch TV anymore

  16. bettestreep2008 February 2, 2012 at 11:17 am -

    I know that Nine has Repeated EB during the afternoons on GEM.

    The more they Repeat – the more people will turn off.

  17. Andrew B February 2, 2012 at 10:59 am -

    No – an Excess Baggage encore did not outrate the original airing of the show! The entry at 6 is still Twenty/20 cricket which ran around 45 minutes late last night.

  18. MJL February 2, 2012 at 10:01 am -

    I wonder what the real figure for excess baggage was seeing the cricket went overtime by an hour.

  19. Emma H February 2, 2012 at 9:58 am -

    My Kitchen Rules is the best show going at the moment !!! A well deserved number 1 ratings show!!!
    It’s great not having dessert loving chefs like in MC where you can cook the best main meal out but if someone does a sweet high calorie dessert, then the sweet cream will always win

    My Kitchen Rules really does Rule !!!!

  20. Allie February 2, 2012 at 9:56 am -

    The champagne corks must be popping at Channel 7, they must be delighted with MKR’s performance in its first week, as it is only going to get stronger as the series progresses. Amazing, I never thought it would rate 1.5M right at the start, I thought it would take a few weeks to build up to such numbers.

    Good ratings for the encore of that very weird episode 1 of EB, but the show’s a turkey, I doubt whether that many people will bother watching the next episode. The shameless cross promotion last night at the cricket, when Mark Nicholson interviewed Dipper during the break between innings, was cringe provoking.

  21. Michael*oz February 2, 2012 at 9:41 am -

    I still cannot believe Cricket is so popular!
