  1. All posts came across from the old layout, but yes not everything fits into the current navigation. You can search for Missing in Action and Show Watch tho I haven’t updated them yet. I’m aware of some of this which is why the site is still in beta.

  2. Ahh thanks 4 the info David. Yeah there was the Missing In Action page for the unscheduled shows, etc. its just hard to look for w/ the new layout. Are there still archives of the Missing In Action/2009 show watch??

  3. Wow Nanny McPhee did really well – over one million viewers. I think if it had a better lead in the movie would’ve rated better (Download got half the viewers of Nanny McPhee). Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader is going down in viewers. They should have some celebrity on it again soon.

  4. Craig there used to be a list called “The Axe”, but it got removed after the switch to WordPress.

    Riker, I agree that 2.5 men is drivel and The Mentalist is fantastic. 2.5 men is pretty much the only thing working for Nine right now, as its pretty much the lowest common denominator of TV. There are wayyyyyyyy better comedies on TV than that tripe.

    And why on earth did Nanny McPhee rate 1 million? The family movie theory probably isn’t very reliable, coz Shark Tale only got 800,000 on Seven.

  5. What is hell is wrong with people who take part in ratings? Two And A Half Men is complete rubbish. If people want to talk about predictability then my word, this show is a gold medal performer.
    The Mentalist is performing very well, backed up by some smart scripts and a good cast.
    Can’t believe Fringe is doing so poorly. Anyone other than me suspect of some ratings figures? Most people I know watch it (not that its scientific) but I know a fairly decent cross-section of people. Not one of them watches TAAHMen OR Australian Top Gear (also complete crap)

  6. IMO ch7 didn’t win the year, ch9 lost it with programming mistakes, moving/removing shows before giving them time to grow and the viewers to trust it would be on the next week. Viewers are becoming tech-savvy and if their show is removed without warning and no sigh it will be back they will find it else where and a few hours later they can be watching the next episode if it has aired elsewhere in the world.

    David do you have a list of shows that have failed on the different networks?
