  1. My surgery was filmed by Channel 7 for Medical Emergency when I broke my leg in the Marshall Islands and was evacuated to Sydney’s St Georges 3 days later…i am in the UK at the moment and have no idea if its been on…any know or did my footage get bumped?

  2. Looking at that advertisement, aside from nine’s claim that they are growing in the demos, a simple maths calculation allows you to realise that commercial tv overall is down quite a bit. The ad doesn’t mention the time period for this change, but I assume it to be the change from last year.

    25-54: Nine up 6.3%, seven down 9.3%, ten up 0.8% = down 2.2%

    18-49: Nine up 8.3%, seven down 11%, ten down 1.8% = down 4.5%

    16-39: Nine up 9.7%, seven down 15.7%, ten down 3.2% = down 9.2%

    I’m sure you get my point.

  3. David – thanks. I understand the placement of 9’s ad in the media section. My (unmade) point was, with the Olympics handing August to 7; why bother advertising now ? The punters surely won’t remember come September, and the advertisers would be reviewing their placements before then.

    Meiji-era – Gruen Transfer has just taken time to get into the consciousness. It’s a shame this first series finishes soon. Obvious problems – it’s a grown-up show with a host that grown-ups don’t warm to – or who doesn’t have the grown-up image. Note to Wil – if you’re not going to wear the tie properly, don’t wear it at all.

  4. Channel 10 should put Friends back on at 7 and then they can stop editing it for inappropriate language and sexual content for the 6 pm slot, which at the moment ruins the show

  5. And by the way,What’s with The gruen transfer last night?

    It has beaten Spicks and Specks,That is regularly,ABC’s No.1 show every tuesday….

  6. Mikee258 said…

    How is it possible that Network 10 averaged more viewers last night than the ABC? The ABC had 3 shows in the top 11 and Network 10 none.


    Maybe The ABC is weak on Morning and afternoon Slots…

    And SBS is Pulling its shares because of Tour de France….

  7. Rudi the 4 page Australian ads by Nine are in sync with all networks indicating their second half slate to advertisers and FreeTV giving out revenue results for the first half of year. It is strategically placed in Thursday’s Media liftout because it is so prominent to buyers and industry.

  8. Ratings are for 6pm-midnight. Jamie finished at 11pm remember.

    McLeod’s is sitting where it ended, around 1m. It’s a tough timeslot against ABC, and now Criminal Minds is working. Lucky there’s no new House yet.

  9. How is it possible that Network 10 averaged more viewers last night than the ABC? The ABC had 3 shows in the top 11 and Network 10 none.

  10. David is that a low figure for McLeod’s Daughters compared to last year, and if it drops any lower do you think it will see out the whole season in that timeslot.

  11. I’ve got an idea dr_rudi:

    1. A fortune
    2. To trick people into thinking that they care about their viewers

    And david, how many people watched prison break last night on channel 7?

  12. Hi David,

    Do you have a comment about 9’s four-page wrap-around advertisment in today’s national broadsheet ?

    How much did that cost ? And, why now ?

    Thanks in advance.

  13. Good to see 2.5 Men outrate that piece of crap The One. Also, Wipeout seems to be soaring more every week, I’ll have to check it out one day. Additional shout out to Burn Notice for doing a respectable 800,000 after months on hiatus.

  14. Yep I noticed that to Dakota hopefully they wont pick up and ten wont improve anymore proving to the BB bashers that BB isn’t to blame ten rating as low as they are

  15. Thats really really bad for BB! Not even in the top five of the night for the finale, and that even for the winner announced show! The other one could barely scrape into the top 10!

  16. There’s a significant dropoff between the two CSIs. NY lost 400,000 viewers from Miami. Good to see Battle of the Choirs rating strongly, along with Rove seeming to grab higher totals in recent weeks. And Dexter and PP lost almost a mill this week, wonder why that is.
