  1. @ Anthony, You hopes were not fulfilled. Ninewon the week over Seven and Ten.

    Saturday Disney continues to beat Today Weekend Edition Saturday.

    It’s interesting that Nine spend money in producing The Shak (especially this year with the revamp of the show), while Ten just show repeats of Raymond, which continues to rate well. Maybe Nine should start showing Amanda Bynes’ What I Like About You, or The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. It will most likely get higher than Shak. Shak should get bumped to Saturday’s on Kids’ WB.

  2. But that 1% lead WTD for 9, would take a 5-6% win by 7 tonight just to tie it for the week. I’d say Nine have it in the bag.

    Been another big week for Seven News, averaging well over 1.6m.

  3. excellent ratings for ghost whisperer and greys anatomy. ghost whisperer could easily rate to the capacity of bones if seven advertised it more. it has been rating a consistent 1.1 million with scarce advertising for the past few weeks.
    i dont understand how people would rather watch the same old boring getaway each thursday ahead of top notch US drama.

  4. Actually that comparison between 500k and 400k would be wrong, because old people still make networks money and 100k difference isn’t that much of one, but i think my point has been made though.

  5. I believe it applies here as well. Sure the publicity departments sprout out TP numbers, but so do CBS. The American audience can see through it and so do advertisers, but audiences don’t here, yet. Advertisers do get demo figures, and a show with 500k people in 18-49 (with 1.2m TP) is going to make more money than a show with 400k people in 1-49 (with 1.9m) TP. I know a show like NCIS appears to be doing very well (i don’t watch the show though), but in the US, it skews incredibly old. So demos are the epitome of well rating shows, here, or anywhere.

  6. Agreed @Benno…. Sea Patrol or Great Outdoors might win in total numbers but their competitors like Desperate Housewives and Ghost Whisperer beat them in the key demos which is what advertisers look at when spending money… SP and GO have lots of viewers over 55 and thats not really who the advertisers are interested in…

  7. Rules of Engagement, GA and PP are climbing in the ratings. There’s 100 or 200k extra for all of those shows this week. Ten will come third or possibly fourth again with the L&O double. Also the big much-ado-about nothing Chaser controversy has no doubt got people interested in the repeat episode on ABC2, even though they cut out the sketch.

  8. P.S: I prob should’ve been a bit more clear with those week to date numbers!!
    Week To Date (as of Fri Morning):
    ABC: 16.1 / Seven: 26.0 / Nine: 28.1 / Ten: 25.1 / SBS: 4.6
    So i guess its still an open race for number 1 for the week.

    Betchya Davids enjoying his break 🙂

  9. Benno, you make a good point. Now i understand that in the US, a shows demo number is actually more important then its TP numbers. But in the US, when a show rates 10million viewers and its mostly younger viewers, then id get it if a company thats advertising a product aimed at a younger audience would pay a premium. But here in australia, when as average program rates only 1million, even if the majority were young viewers, would it be worth paying a premium to advertise, and hope that enough young people are watching during the ads, not looking down at a laptop or smsing? I dont think that here in australia our television viewing population is large enough for demo’s to be more important then TP numbers. Maybe in the future, when an average show rates 2million+

    Just the way i see it, any replies?!

  10. The gap between Nine and Seven on Thursdays narrowed yesterday on the back of solid Grey’s and Ghost Whisperer ratings. And although TEN are trailing on Thursdays, keeping Rules of Engagement on and letting viewership grow has seen ratings improve yet again (now 200k above what it was doing 2 weeks ago), leading on to a big improvement for both L&O:CI and Medium.
