  1. Hole in the wall didn’t do very well did it! I do not know what channel nine are thinking with their programming. Surely Kerry Packer wasn’t the only brain behind why the network use to produce some quality programmes! A Current Affair is just terrible now, it’s all fluff and nonsense. I am also missing Sunday but only when Jim Waley was the host. I think that’s why more people are tuning into the ABC for their news and current affairs, plus you don’t have to put up with stupid stories about animals performing cute tricks or celebs looking like idiots. Anyway that’s my say.

  2. mmm, Nine is going to need to pull something out of the bag to beat seven this year, as much as people lamented Dancing being a flop on Sunday, if it has Seven only 2% behind going into its incredibly stong Monday/Tuesday rather than 10% then its doing its job as by the time it gets to Wednesday, based on current figures, it would take a miracle for nine to catch seven by weeks end..

  3. Excellent numbers for Criminal Minds, and to think this show started in that slot 700k. Cant deny those numbers for the repeat either, doubling what Sugar got last week and giving 7 a thumping win.

    Between 7’s massive wins on Monday and Tuesday, strong wins on Wednesday and Friday, and more competitive Saturday and Sunday, I think it is near impossible for 9 to win any weeks for the remainder of this year.

  4. OMG what has happened to Nine News and ACA – they are now both struggling to make the top 10 and getting beaten by ABC News.

    Its not Nine News Adelaide and Perth that have gone pear shape – it looks like all of their bulletins have gone south. Maybe it is time for a new look or dare one say a new timeslot !!!!

  5. glad RUSH on TEN did well. anything of 1m viewers classifies as good raitings??

    i didn’t watch it though but i taped it so i’ll watch it later. i was actually waiting for the raitings and if i did well i’d watch it and i guess i will.

    Also what is the appeal of PACKED TO THE RAFTERS? Saw part of the first episode and it was okay but not brilliant. I can’t believe the second episode got over 2m viewers. that’s amazing.maybe i’ll watch it now.

    I guess Aussie made tv shows are really getting up there.

    Wasn’t suprised about DWTS not beating 60 minutes. I mean, come on. Hard hitting stories against dancing. What is better?

  6. All Saints grabbed almost 100K extra on top of next week, and NCIS has been down since coming back from the break, so i sure Rush can improve….i thought it was a fantastic drama…the original promo’s looked poor, but a few good reviews pushed me into watching (and im sure it’s doing better 16-39 figures than AS)
    Ten just needs to keep the faith

  7. Cought 10′ S new show RUSH last night and very disapointed with first night.2 predictable and no connection to charactors
    Bad 1st up at only 1 mil,Will be pushed back to 10.30 like most shows

  8. Wow PTTR kicking ass. I missed it again, I had QCS yesterday + already had watched 1.5 hrs of PB so I couldn’t be bothered watching even more TV. Taken Out is losing viewers, I don’t see it getting any higher. Also it seems Australia is finally getting tired of 2.5 Men. Usually it rates around 1.4-1.6 mill in that slot, but it barely pulled 1 mill yesterday. It might be time to finally bring out those Temptation eps just to give the audience a bit of a break.

  9. good to see Taken Out already going down. might not even last the week! that’d be awesome. They were almost done with Friends; I think in the ninth season. why take it off so close to the end for something so menial and downright stupid in Taken Out?

  10. I agree with many of the comments above, PTTR was great last night, and I think it’s because it is such a relatable show that people feel like it’s part of their own story somehow.

    7 had the top 7 shows of the night, I cannot believe how low Nine news’s figures have gone, Channel Nine Perth was always blamed for not doing well, but now it looks like the whole country is tuning out of nine news.

  11. Maybe that’s the end of Wipeout then, nine can’t afford to lose so bad. I also hate it when networks over play a show, which is what nine is doing with 2.5 men, once a week is really more than enough. I agree with Rush, needs to be on a night when some of those repeated american shows are on, think it would win for sure.

  12. Ten probably should be happy in my opinion. Especially up against All Saints. It’s a shame two Aussie dramas have to go head to head…again. Why not put Rush up against one of the repeats of Criminal Minds?
