  1. Oh the irony: Channel 9 get rid of McLeods Daughters with about 900k viewers, because they thought those figures were awful (I beg to differ when the year is 2008), and two hit shows, plus more in that timeslot since, get worse figures, or at best match the ratings.

  2. Doreen, Jolene Anderson was on a break from All Saints while performing on stage in Tell Me on a Sunday. Hence the storyline of her character being absent. Sadly these are Mark Priestley’s final episodes. The writers and producers could not have known what was going about happen when writing/filming these storylines around their respectives characters. I agree it has been very eerie watching these episodes. I’m very interested to see how they handle Mark’s departure from All Saints.

  3. Hi all, I missed the only show I really like last night “LIFE”, and was wondering is there somewhere on the net I can watch it. I tried the CH10 site,but they don`t even list it as one of their shows, nbc won`t let me watch it “I`m in the wrong area……….THX Hugh

  4. What the…? I don’t see how such a boring, by-the-numbers show such as Criminal Minds seems to get so many viewers, yet clever, well-written and involving ones like The Mentalist and House rate so poorly. Sometimes I think that people just watch the crap on Channel 7 just because it’s on Channel 7.

  5. Well I know I did not tune into The Mentalist yesterday even though I used to watch it on Sundays. My priority goes: watch Criminal Minds, record House, and now that The Mentalist is on wed 8.30, download The Mentalist!

  6. The Mentalist really did drop – and there really is no signs of House ever getting back to its glory days. It’s not the same without the original team in my opinion. On another note, watching All Saints the other night, it’s getting eery watching Mark Priestley in these final episodes so distressed – he really is superb in these episodes and such a tragic loss.

    David – has Jolene Anderson left AS for good??

  7. Well the move to Wednesday for The Mentalist was an absolute shocker, dropping nearly 500k from what it got merely days ago, not to mention having the strongest lead in. Criminal Minds continues to kill it at 8.30, I’ve watched it on and off from season 1, but last season, and now this season have really got me hooked. ACA doing quite poorly, the Perth edition is clearly a waste of money.

  8. LOL @ the mentalist losing more than 400k. serves 9 right for pushing it around the timetable. we all predicted a big fall but nothing this big.

    its not on nxt week i would say that there will be another fall the following week. ch 9 is making it very hard for a stable audience to form.

    and i thought that ch9 might have had a good rating show for once.

    Just goes to show if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. ch7 did the same with DWTS.

    PS. ACA is getting very low viewers TT has beaten it by about 300k every day

  9. Really bad move pushing The Mentalist to Wednesday. Nine got cocky with this show and thought the audience would just follow it to Wednesday and now they must be seething Crimina Minds beat it.

  10. Why is 30 rock on so late when it’s on? Is it rated M and can’t be shown at 7 or 7.30pm. Who has the rights to The Office (10?) and where is it? I saw 2.5 men last night…….and it was Good. Not 300 times a week good but I can see why it’s popular. 7 certainly has this year in the bag.

  11. @ seanie

    I am really surprised of those figures. For a show that skews (very) old, it certainly pulls the younger people. I guess i can’t understand just why it appeals to so many of these people.
