    So, what you are saying WolfieBoy is, that the amount of viewers per day stays the same, they are just spread over the multichannels? Does that mean, Masterchef still delivers such satifying numbers that it pays off to air the show? How come 2.5 – 3m people watch a program when it is exciting? We see the potential which all the channels fail to tap.

  2. David Knox July 30, 2013 at 8:48 pm -

    Ok you’ve answered your own question. I’m done.

  3. WolfieBoy July 30, 2013 at 8:32 pm -

    What David is saying is what the whole TV industry regards as the new norm. Frankly you have to face it the landscape is different now. Any show with 1 million or more viewers is a success in todays world. Remember a Network has 3 to 4 channels now, so income total is from all of those digital multi-channels for each network.
    Some finales and big sporting events draw viewers from pay tv and other areas, thus creating the bigger audience but those events are rare nowdays.

  4. frankly July 30, 2013 at 8:30 pm -

    I ask my 3 neighbours what they watched and then I multiply this by
    1m. So, 3 neighbours x 1m = 3m viewers! Simple math, right?

  5. David Knox July 30, 2013 at 8:15 pm -

    Where are you getting this figure of 3m for NRL? It is incorrect.

  6. frankly July 30, 2013 at 8:07 pm -

    1m viewers is just not explicit enough. Its an elusive value. 3m is a clear result because it differs to the average viewer rate.

  7. frankly July 30, 2013 at 8:01 pm -

    Simple math!

    Fans = 3m viewers
    No fans = 1m viewers

    NRL has 3m each show, okay?

  8. David Knox July 30, 2013 at 7:57 pm -

    Not really. The landscape has changed several times in the last few years. If you go back 10 years and more shows were regularly getting over 2m. Now the benchmark is 1m. It doesn’t mean they are failing it means the goalposts have moved due to multichannels, Pay TV, binge and DVDs, piracy, online and gaming alternatives. Events like State of Origin and Reality TV finales may get 2.5m+ but they are the exception not the rule.

  9. frankly July 30, 2013 at 7:51 pm -

    @WolfieBoy
    In addition, the 1m viewer number is no target group at all, because this audience watches tv every day, no matter what’s on

  10. frankly July 30, 2013 at 7:36 pm -

    @Wolfieboy
    A bit beside the point!

    I was mainly talking about Australian business and not people’s mood. Again, compare 3m to 1m. It’s just fact and unfortunately a negative result. This is a wake up call waiting to be discovered for a long time!

  11. WolfieBoy July 30, 2013 at 4:29 pm -

    @frankly – why so negative? 1 Million viewers is a lot for our modern media world, one that is so diversified now. Imagine you are a business – where else can you reach 1 million customers all at the same time? So TV is still the most powerful advertising medium by far.

    Only taping BB to allow spooling through all the trivial, boring rubbish. Will be watching XFactor of our recording devices as well to avoid the sob stories and just watch the actual acts that are worthwhile watching.

    Foxtel are streaming on the net as of today – we are considering a package worth $35 per month. Will be watching on tablets and our main desktop PC. Telstra Bigpond customers do not get the downloads counted as usage. Now we are tempted – have been waiting for this.

    FTA TV will still be our mainstream supply of entertainment – so no doomsday predictions from us. The media world is just bigger now…

  12. poss July 30, 2013 at 1:52 pm -

    simmo3, i’m with you i would rather watch Shaun!!

  13. Kushaa July 30, 2013 at 12:40 pm -

    @wwenrl – demo doesn’t necessarily mean good news. Just refer to the article on this site about who has the largest advertising revenue. I think people should not focus so much on demos – this is a different market to US.

  14. frankly July 30, 2013 at 12:18 pm -

    Disappointment draws me back to your forum, David!

    NRL, State of Origin and the Eurovision shows have around 3m viewers each time because fans watch the show. That tells me (simple logic), all the other shows on TV should have around 3m viewers if they have fans, right?

    Firstly, the audience measuring systems uses people who watch tv anyway, right? Secondly, someone who only finds entertainment through TV, for what ever reason, has the tv switched on, eventhough nothing they like is on TV. These two examples result in 1m viewers.

    Another fact: why does Australia have one of the highest piracy rates in the world? Because Australians are bored to death and try to get relief from America.

  15. wwenrl July 30, 2013 at 12:14 pm -

    @JennyW. Yes, but Big Brother won in the all important demographic. They won 2 out 3. But time will tell who will win!

  16. Secret Squirrel July 30, 2013 at 12:00 pm -

    Sheep and rabbit, neck and neck.

  17. frankly July 30, 2013 at 11:46 am -

    We are talking about one day, right?

  18. David Knox July 30, 2013 at 11:29 am -

    If TV is dead how did The Block get 2.8m viewers and how does it keep drawing you back to comment on a TV blog? Not dead, just shifting the way we watch.

  19. frankly July 30, 2013 at 11:19 am -

    Who watches tv nowadays? Those viewing numbers are ridiculous to call them a success!

    TV is dead, but please keep telling the advertisers that 1m viewers are magically good.

    btw: why not repeat last years’ shows and just change the winners?

  20. Bruce Banner July 30, 2013 at 10:24 am -

    X Factor was pretty average last night… as usual, everyone has some kind of sob story from parents divorcing to dead dads to foster homes to… well whatever the second girl had going wrong for her… her dislike of her birth name for not being edgy enough? Both Dannii and RedFoo did add some spark to the judging panel after the dull as dishwater Guy Sebastian the last few years.

    Big Brother… same old, same old. Why does every gay male character have to be over the top, annoying and flamboyant? And no-one over 41 (as yet), and as mentioned in another post, she looks 31. Two people pretending they are married… didn’t they do this another year, or pretending not to be married or something? Yawns.

    Negative Nancy I am today!

  21. simmo3 July 30, 2013 at 10:20 am -

    Go Shaun !

  22. The Other Adam July 30, 2013 at 10:11 am -

    Pretty big drop from xfactor to please marry my boy

  23. The Idiot Box AU Blog July 30, 2013 at 9:53 am -

    I thought Big Brother was pretty good last night. Sure the novelty of the twist will wear off quickly but it was a good way to kick off this season.

    Meanwhile I thought the X Factor was solid, albeit unspectacular. Far too many backstories when the focus should be on the actual singing.

  24. JennyW July 30, 2013 at 9:49 am -

    Told ya X Factor would win! :)

  25. jumpjakflash July 30, 2013 at 9:38 am -

    So, Big Brother is trying to appeal to the older demographic, but they win in 16-39 and 18-49 haha!

    But Yay- its the 4th Top Show!
