  1. TEN could try Out of the Blue in that slot, if ratings for W&G dont pick up.

    im no fan of the show, but if it only gets average ratings, then that is that time slot sorted for quite a few weeks.

  2. Looks like Will & Grace will be gone soon. Or maybe TEN needs to put more ads to attract more people. Friends was popular when it aired but it didn’t rate well when it aired weeks before. Personally I hope TEN brings back Friends because I love that show.

  3. Dave does post the percentages for Fridays and Saturdays, it’s just they’re usually not released until Sunday and that’s when he adds them, which is why most people probably miss it (not saying it’s your fault though, Dave!).

    I do know Saturday’s percentages though (you can add these in). From Oztam:

    TEN: 22.0%
    NINE: 25.2%
    SEVEN: 24.1%
    ABC: 20.8%
    SBS: 7.9%

  4. Has ch10 considers some light entertainment/news show for the 7pm time slot, maybe focused on sports and entertainment (Movies/Music)? Maybe with the number of shows that get moved, changed or canceled they could help viewer keep track of them 😛

  5. Geeeez nine would be peeking about their news service, both aca and nine news under the million, aca in the 800s!
    maybe ten should put neighbours at seven, simpsons at 6.30 and sports tonight at 6, and ten could claim themselves as the most dedicated sporting network, but i guess Sport tonights on late anyways every night.
    yeh i was wondering that too, why dont u show network percentages on fri and sat david?

  6. How can TEN let 9am continue like it has for a long time? It must make money and not need ratings. 58k nationally – there is no words I have to discribe that!

  7. Look what TEN has done to W&G!!!! The people @ 7 must be laughing. I personally love the show but if I want W&G I watch Foxtel.
    What’s next @ 7pm? TEN will have to do something bold to get an audience @ 7pm which has never been a strong suit for them……..unless Neighbours was on then when it was the #1 show in the country.

  8. Just a few points – That Ice Road Truckers number is only for 3 markets, for some reason the figures were not shown for the audience in Adelaide and Perth. Therefore it didn’t do too bad. Will & Grace however has sunk to an all new low, absolutely pathetic.

    Sweet Home Alabama was also only shown in Brisbane and Sydney so those figures are quite good. Better Homes continues to be the only stand out on Friday’s

    Nine News and ACA had a shocking night.

  9. lol! That is just so funny that Ice Road Truckers got that result, it seems that everytime a network messes around with the programming so quick they lose 100k viewers, do you think they will ever learn or are they going to continue down this path of making TV scheduling suck from now on.

    Of all the shows Ten have had on a 7pm this year Taken Out has probably done the best. Which is just the funniest thing because everyone gave it such a bad time by saying how poorly it did, think they would love at least a few hundred thousands viewers now. Please don’t put The Simpons back on at 7pm though, I use to love that show but it just got played to death, now whether is a new ep or not I just go meh! Ten would probably do better by putting just a news bulletin on or something, a lot of people now are missing the 6pm news because it seems too early to watch it, daylight saving has that effect on TV. Whatever they do, put something on in a slot and leave it or suffer the consequences of audiences tuning out in frustration, your a bunch of idiots you stupid programmers.

  10. So how long before Ice Road Truckers is gone, BTW was it just me or was that the first ep again which ch10 aired last year?

    Movies didn’t do much for 7 or 10 (again why was T2 in 4×3?) Harry Potter must have helped ch9 but who won the night?

  11. Big note to Ten
    Come up with something for 7.00 asap
    Pity W & G not getting the numbers,still good show,more promo’s might help
    Buy Scubs from 7 and make it a hit at 7.00
    Or even look at news or sports tonight in slop
    Anything is better than low 400’s

  12. Bye bye Will & Grace. What next for Ten in the 7pm timeslot. I’m guessing they’ll just chuck The Simpsons on. Ice Road Truckers flopped in a bad timeslot for it. Will Ten listen to people on this site and put 90210 there. It can’t do much worse than Download and now Ice Road Truckers were doing.

  13. Why wasn’t Terminator 2 in 16×9 last night on ch10, don’t they have the right to the wide screen version? It suck when a good movie is not shown at it’s best on digital!
