    Amazing that ratings for Doctor Who: The Snowmen is substantially better than the previous episode The Angels Take Manhattan but somewhat disappointingly still a couple of places down from that previous episode.

    What interests me is the total failure of “The Wedding Band”. Has been hyped to death by Ten, yet brand new episodes of it Wednesday couldn’t even get into the top 20. Which last night means fewer than 342,000 viewers!

    And do we really need replays of The Project which they imply are live hosted. Though it’s never actually said.

    the Boxing Day Test (the cricket) rated well yesterday, as it usually does. The Sydney to Hobart race did alright too. Lots of people watching tv during the day (cause of the Public holiday).

    We’ll be seeing a lot of sports over the next month in the ratings – with the Tennis starting this week, and with the Cricket continuing too (and the soccer on Foxtel). Won’t be moving from the couch much! lol

    David, when will we know about what’s happening to Deal or No Deal? Going by the cricket’s ratings, if Nine were smart they would go ‘broader’ with Big Brother next year, especially to win Nine News Brisbane.

  5. David Knox December 27, 2012 at 10:53 am -

    SBS owns L&N rights, but cricket gave Nine the win and lead-in.

  6. Daniel December 27, 2012 at 10:33 am -

    The lack of a quality lead in versus the cricket is really hurting Seven News Melbourne.

    194k to 468k is a large gap. Interesting to see if viewers stick with Seven News during the tennis season or whether they’ll still switch to Nine.

    In other news I think that The Simpsons at 6pm is having little to no impact. Maybe time for a newer show like Community to fill the void. Or better yet revive Letters & Numbers. The oldies who watch the 5pm news will be more likely to hang around for that rather than The Simpsons. Even youngsters like me were into that show when it was on SBS. The Countdown version is okay but an Aussie version would be better…
