    Surprised that nothing has been mentioned on the GEM/7Two and 4pm Melissa Doyle bulletins..?

    X Factor has been really good without Nat.

    @JB The late timeslot change for Footy Classified yesterday was not refelcted in the autmoatic reports generated this morning, such as the one that would have been provided to this site. As such, the figures that have been reported are not right. In Melbourne, the show won its timeslot, where it secured a peak audience of 301,183, with an average of 189,108 viewers and a free-to-air audience share of 29.6%.

    @WWENRL everyone makes mistakes!

    @ghghgh20_211
    Even if they knew the groups, I highly doubt the other judges are going to pick bad contestants. The judges don’t gain anything from winning really and it would reflect badly on the show.

    I see Housos sheds 20,000 viewers each week.

    It makes you wonder why the ABC has embarked on a comedy Bogan-a-thon, given that no-one seems interested in Bogans. Move on ABC and SBS.

    David you did a little error! on the Ten section with the Project. Just correcting you!

    I know Nat Bass is pregnant during these bootcamp episodes of X factor and she couldn’t fly to Sydney to be there but i at least think she should have been there via skype and a large tv screen so that she could also have her say.

    it’s gonna be a tough job when she does come back for the home visits and she has these six contestants that she didn’t even help pick.

    I’d be worried if I was Nat but at least the judges don’t know who their group is yet and they are not picking bad singers to end up in Nat’s group on purpose.

    Mythbusters was fantastic last night. Almost made me want to get 100 rolls of duct tape and bubble wrap and go get lost somewhere!!

    After seven years in the 10.30 Monday timeslot, Footy Classified gets its lowest ever ratings after Nine for some reason put it on at 9.40 last night without telling anybody. Why the timeslot change and why not tell anyone?

    Day 1 of Sam Armytage hosting is a win to Sunrise. Someone should let a certain DT “journo” know.

    ABC news breakfast with over 100k is quite substantial. tens new foray is really going to have 3 serious competitors. when Breakfast launched it was more a case of 2 competitors and that other one.

    I love “Mythbusters”
    Can’t understand why it only rated 207,000!

    Pretty good figures for The Project.

    Pretty disappointing numbers for an excellent Q&A last night given how close it is to the election.

    David, any numbers for Mel Doyle’s first night at 7pm? I watched and thought she was actually brilliant – very calm, confident, professional and collected. It made me wonder why she hasn’t been doing news before – she’s very good at it!

    C9 would be disappointed the Aussie cricketers could not hold it together last night…would have been great viewing if they were chasing 100 of so to win tonight.

    I guess C7 will win Tues night now.
