    Yeah I didn’t watch The Good Wife last night just because MKR and The Blacklist was on and becasue MKR always runs late just easier to stay on that channel. If I was the only one home however I would of recorded 7 and watch Good Wife because its one of my fave shows for sure!

  2. WolfieBoy February 27, 2014 at 7:12 pm -

    Calling viewers that watch MKR’s bogans is just silly.

    It is an entertaining show. Not a great cooking show but great entertainment show and full credit to the producers. Give credit where credit is due.

    I love Masterchef but I watch that for cooking skills not drama, not that they have much drama on that show thank goodness. :-)

  3. WolfieBoy February 27, 2014 at 7:08 pm -

    The Goodwife may be down due to viewers catching up with recordings. We recorded the shows last night because we have just caught up with TBL and are now working through MKR’s.

    It is post Olympics week, so lets not panic.

    B&B attracts the older viewers to Ten News. They get a large audience for 5pm time slot of mostly older viewers. 6PM could do with a top comedy but Project is doing OK and they must persevere with it IMHO. :-)

  4. David Knox February 27, 2014 at 4:36 pm -

    It was already tested at 6pm. But I think it could be worth reconsidering.

  5. FKlein February 27, 2014 at 4:29 pm -

    This idea of moving The Bold and The Beautiful into prime time will not work. It has a loyal audience of probably mostly older women who have been in the routine of watching it for years at that 4:30 slot.

  6. Leigh H February 27, 2014 at 4:23 pm -

    In my opinion, if you are one of two million plus watching MKR there is a high chance you are a dumb bogan.

  7. Evan43 February 27, 2014 at 2:26 pm -

    Bold and the Beautiful is rating so well for Channel 10 in that 4.30PM slot that perhaps they should move into prime time, in an unedited version(which includes the opening and closing credits, and sex scenes).
    Channel 10 obviously have a serious problem right now. I am not sure how they can fix it, other than perhaps moving the dance show to Thursday night(where it would not be in competition with MKR), and putting “Neighbours” back in the 6.30PM slot on Ten.
    “The Biggest Loser” is tired and needs to be rested, permanently.
    As for the ABC, this new incarnation of “Spicks & Specks” is hardly setting the world on fire, and the Moodys is crap.
    The only problem for Channel 7 with MKR – they will need to find a new villian, to replace David. The nasty teams seem to bring in record ratings numbers on that show.

  8. Sammee February 27, 2014 at 2:05 pm -

    I don’t think Australia is full of “dumb bogans”.
    It’s just that other people have interests in other genres whether it be comedy,news,or sport at the expense of drama.
    I myself don’t watch The Good Wife but am happy that other viewers are enjoying it.
    I don’t condemn people for not watching the shows I like,different strokes for different folks.

    On another note, totally looking forward to Survivor tonight!

  9. Cam Reed February 27, 2014 at 1:08 pm -

    @Drew222 – I record everything I watch and watch next day, I started doing it because of double episodes (like with The Good Wife this week). Then just kept going because it was a way to watch what I want when I want and series record stops having to chase schedule changes.

    Even record the stuff on ABC as well, so it’s not all about skipping ads, it’s about watching when I want to and am refreshed enough to do so. For example I’m up at 4am each day, get home at about 5pm, so especially double episodes of quality like The Good Wife, I’m going to be too tired to sit out (when you need to pay attention).

    I don’t have an OzTam Ratings box, however I know that if people who do have one record and then watch the shows by skipping ads; then those are not counted in the time-shifted ratings (only non fast-forwarded are counted)

  10. trev February 27, 2014 at 12:28 pm -

    Time and time again the Oztam system has been shown to be a reliable measure of who is watching who. Not perfect, but close enough. When 10 had Masterchef, Thank God you’re Here, Good News Week, TBYG etc. rating their socks off, there was never any talk of how inaccurate this system was, only when 10 went into decline.

    Back then I wouldn’t miss an episode of the last three and The 10 news was my favourite when Ronnie Wilson, Tim Webster and Jess Rowe were behind the desk and Tim Bailey had a half decent haircut.

    Sadly today, my worst and often stated fears appear to be proven correct. As David said previously, next week for 10 is indeed a big, big worry.

  11. Drew222 February 27, 2014 at 11:50 am -

    I’m new to this so perhaps I’m wrong, but concerning most of the television audience being dumb bogans Im not so sure. We are a Mum Dad and two teenagers family and we record everything we want to watch and we watch it all. The ratings I think may not be a true reflection. For example last night we recorded.The Block, The Good wife, Coronation street, Eastenders Ru Pauls Drag race and The Black list. Most nights its the same across pay TV and FTA for us. Oddly enough we cannot stand MKR but I guess a million or more cant be wrong. Just interested if most people are the same recording everything, but ratings not being able to see who is really watching watch.

  12. JimboJones February 27, 2014 at 11:25 am -

    I’m heartened that each week Mad As Hell gains more viewers. It’s amusing that Spicks & Specks and The Moodys were supposed to be the flagship comedies for the ABC, but are being outclassed by a guy sitting behind a desk. Maybe it’s got something to do with the writing?

    I’ve figured out why this series of The Moodys is so lame. The first series relied on the Dan & Cora “will they, won’t they” plot device to keep things interesting and tense. That’s now gone, so all they have left is bogans shouting at each other. Which is not funny.

  13. joely February 27, 2014 at 11:24 am -

    Such a shame The Good Wife doesn’t rate better. It really is one of the best dramas of the last few years, and last night’s episodes were fantastic. Guess it’s like everything else getting sucked down the gurgler that is Channel Ten right now.

  14. Ronnie February 27, 2014 at 11:22 am -

    I hear you David – Monday night will be tough for the launch of Secrets and Lies. I am surprised at how little support there is for Ten out there. Hopefully S&L and Puberty Blues attract the audience they deserve. I will be watching!

  15. catherine February 27, 2014 at 10:59 am -

    If the good wife was on 9 or especially 7 it would rate so much higher. Last nights double episode was brilliant. I just hope 10 persist with it.

    Why arent more people watching?

  16. Mr Rampage February 27, 2014 at 10:53 am -

    Micallef gets a nice bump but no such luck for Spicks & Specks.

  17. FKlein February 27, 2014 at 10:53 am -

    The block had a massive jump in ratings for their Wednesday/challenge episode. Watching the promos for last nights episodes only showed the block wedding, which on the show went it only for 5 minutes. Also the promos made no mention of the fact that it was a challenge episode. I guess good job at the people at nine for fooling an extra 200,000-300,000 people into watching the challenge episode.
    Also I watched to project last night to see the story on the NZ drug thing, I have to say it was a very funny episode. I might have to start watching it more often now.

  18. poshreany February 27, 2014 at 10:30 am -

    Thank you david. Them numbers are terrible for such a great tv show. I expected it to get 400’000+ with the way they have been advertising it constantly.

  19. Rutzie February 27, 2014 at 10:27 am -

    Inside Story was a snoozefest. Perfect cure for insomnia. I’d be staggered if it pulled anywhere near a million next week. Good to see Mad as Hell up by almost a 100k from last week. Easily the funniest show on TV.

  20. Leigh H February 27, 2014 at 10:24 am -

    The Good Wife deserves so many more eyeballs. Is Australia full of dumb bogans? It would seem so if the ratings actually are a true reflection of what we watch as a nation.

  21. Shoudy Chen February 27, 2014 at 10:18 am -

    Inside story has decent ratings in its 8:30 timeslot. I think Inside Story is doing pretty well in its ratings.

  22. David Knox February 27, 2014 at 9:55 am -

    The Good Wife was 267,000 / 238,000. I worry for new dramas next week.

  23. poshreany February 27, 2014 at 9:45 am -

    Seriously disappointed the Goodwife isn’t in the top 20! Do you know what is rated?
