    David you used to post little synopses for TBL but haven’t for the past 2 weeks. Is there going to be anymore?

    Good figures for both Ncis shows. Although I still see no reason ten can’t use ncis l.a to prop up 9.30pm wed nights and just show a normal repeat tue 9.30/

    Expect TBL Ratings to lift next week when Makeover Week Arrives.

    Good to see The Biggest Loser getting in the 600K again, does anyone think it will stay next season

    Just looked at tonight’s schedule and looks like TBBT is on instead of TV. Wow! What a surprise :-P

    Think channel 9 will win the ratings this week but rely too heavily on just a few shows, they don’t have any in depth follow up and once these are finished I think they will be back in square one with all the repeats and repeats and repeats yet again, they need to get rid of more dead wood.

    876k for NCIS surely is a better ROI than anything else last night no?

    I wonder if the bump for At The Movies was because they reviewed the new Star Trek film?

    And of course The Voice went way past its advertised finish time, even though Darren had to cut Seal off a number of times!!

    Good to see At The Movies crack the 500k mark. It looks like it has been getting numbers on Tuesday nights than what it was getting on Wednesday nights where it was on for numerous years.

    Also, good to see SBS getting good numbers. Who Do You Think You Are gets great numbers for the channel. The ”quiet achiever” – Insight – is doing good numbers for sbs too. Hope there is more publicity for these shows.

    When comparing ratings results one must use a little thing called context.

    Seven stumbled with Celebrity Splash and delaying House Rules so they will probably lose the week for the first time this year. Wonder if giving Nine Australia’s Got Talent will be their next mistake.

    Such is the divide between Seven and Ten that 876,000 for NCIS is deemed “good business”, whereas Celebrity Splash was considered a massive flop with 821,000.

    The Project must be disappointed with those ratings considering Sandra “Sultry” was on the desk last night…

    Channel Seven did nothing to advertise the final of The Amazing Race on 7mate not even on Twitter did they do anything to promote it.
