    Such a shame about Puberty Blues, it is an excellent show with an excellent cast.

    @mv if you grew up in the 70′s then it was like this, hence the book, the movie and the tv show! You may not have experienced it but it was definitely happening.

    I think the girl in the panel van was indeed a metaphor for certain girls in the 70′s – the things they were willing to do to be cool and in (as David previously said)

  2. jezza the first original one August 30, 2012 at 9:22 pm -

    @ bettestreep……I guess a few people tuned out of GoBack as they saw through it for what it is…..a load of extreme leftie nonsense, lets face it they only started sinking in huge numbers when Mr Rudd came to power….great legacy…Not

  3. David Knox August 30, 2012 at 4:35 pm -

    Re: GBTWYCF drop. Last year the show started from a lower base because it was unknown then word of mouth spread quickly and it lifted. This year we had a better idea of what to expect so it started higher, and the competition was strong with Gruen, Puberty Blues etc. I suspect tonight will be higher because Thursdays are soft and they are going to Christmas Island. Will be problematic for TEN.

  4. D@GP August 30, 2012 at 4:01 pm -

    4 wins for 9′s Sydney news so far this week…

  5. mv August 30, 2012 at 2:31 pm -

    @ David That is true. I guess I just found it a bit hard to watch. Glad it wasn’t like that when I was growing up!

  6. bettestreep2008 August 30, 2012 at 2:00 pm -

    steviep – I too was surprised by the drop in GBTWYCF last night.

    But maybe people – like myself – tuned in to the first episode and was confronted, offended and upset about the deplorable situation of asylum seekers and the gobsmacking views of the three rightwing participants – Angry, Peter and Michael , that we didn’t want a second dose.

    We have enough asylum seeker bashing by the coalition politicians, as well as rightwing shock jocks like Bolt, Price and Jones – maybe it was too much to sit through for a second night.

    These are the reasons why I skipped the second – not sure why others did though.

  7. David Knox August 30, 2012 at 1:50 pm -

    Ahh but this is part of what the book was about. Girls wanting to be part of the group, then dealing with the repercussions. It is a time warp piece after all, it’s not meant to reflect current standards.

  8. mv August 30, 2012 at 1:36 pm -

    @ The Moops I tend to agree with you on Puberty Blues last night. I was born in the early 70′s and lived in Melbourne so never experienced this in my teen years but the girls just putting up with the way the boys are treating them didn’t sit right with me and I found it annoying, for eg the girl laying in the back of the panel van while they all took their turn was just weird. I will give it a few more weeks cause it does have good actors in it but i hope it improves and that little brother is just so annoying!

  9. steviep August 30, 2012 at 11:45 am -

    Surely the biggest story here is the signficant drop from Go back to where you came from….Last year this show grew as it went from day 1 to 2 to 3. It has lost 100,000 viewers in a day..Not good.

  10. The Moops August 30, 2012 at 11:20 am -

    @Bella, I love Bargain Hunt, such a fantastic show. I’ve just rediscovered it on SevenTwo.

    I didn’t enjoy PB at all last night, it was not a great episode. Very stilted dialogue and badly put together, I thought. If it keeps up with episodes of that quality, it is going to drop like a stone. One laugh out loud moment, when one of the characters called the other a “weak act”. I haven’t heard that expression since high school! That was the high point, the rest was terrible.

  11. Bella August 30, 2012 at 10:33 am -

    Its interesting that Bargain Hunt keeps rating as its now in repeats and 7two are showing episodes that we’ve seen in the last three months or so.

  12. poshreany August 30, 2012 at 10:28 am -

    what did dallas get for ratings last night?

  13. David Knox August 30, 2012 at 10:28 am -

    Check News post for numbers beyond Top 20.

  14. gregaus August 30, 2012 at 10:12 am -

    David – no mention of “I Will Survive”. Any chance of posting the show’s ratings? (Though I’m worried I won’t like what I see). Thanks.

  15. Mr. J August 30, 2012 at 10:02 am -

    Another drop for puberty. Not good. Those ratings would send it knocking on deaths door on 7 or 9. Lower than the figures Wild Boys and rescue special ops were axed on. I guess that it the one good thing about the ten apocalypse, shows don’t need to do that well to look really good.
