  1. Hi David,
    Thanks for getting back to me – shame you dont know about Discover Downunder. Is it not on the radar because its not prime time??
    I love this show and watch it as often as possible – my only real gripw is that its not long enough, Channel 9 always change the timeslot last minute (so mess up my date with the TV), and its on too damn early – if the networks had any brains they would put it on a bit later (around 5pm would be nice!) as I am assured to be home to watch it!
    Keep up the good work mate – its great.
    W

  2. Hello David, I have been watching all the ratings etc with great interest over the last 10 weeks or so. One os the Saturday TV Shows is Discover Downunder 4pm Saturdays on Channel 9. It is listed at 24 for the day in your ratings above. It appears that it has been taken off air in the Western states yet its ratings performance over more recent weeks seems to be even stronger than normal even with out those states – how does this work and why is it doing so well??

  3. @mak. You are very confused. I actually think we agree, but you just want to disagree for the sake of it. Of course i’m cynicaI. I was perplexed with all the people hailing it a massive win for Today and Nine when i just think it was chance occurence on the two shows fluctuating ratings. They both go up and down each day, on this day the up and down just happened to push Today in front. That is all.

  4. Don’t agree with the ratings BMDog

    Whenever I’ve seen them it’s usually AFL with more on Fridays to Sundays (as above)

    With Hunt played on Friday or not, the extra interest would have helped the NRL audience figure

  5. @jed: the way you posed your comment indicates that you are somewhat synical of the one off result.
    Why don’t you read your comment again and ask yourself “how will people view this” and “what feedback am I going to receive”.
    My comment was not aimed directly at your question but rather at peoples general thought process when faced with hard facts…….

  6. I think Friday night was the first time in a very, very long time NRL had bigger numbers than AFL.
    The Cricket and the fact North Melbourne were playing had a negative impact on 7’s figures.
    Tens Saturday night footy ratings did very well

  7. @mak read my comment again. I didn’t indicate one win was a turning point. I never indicated that this meant Today would be number one now. A lot of people were claiming this a massive win for Today, but Fridays ratings didn’t reflect that so i was asking the reason behind this one off. There has always been a few thousand between the two all of sudden small lead to Today. Was there a special on Today show??? Did people not like the fill in hosts on Sunrise?? Maybe usual Sunrise viewers had to go to work early, i don’t know.

  8. @Jed: its funny how some people think one stray result from the norm results in a turning point.
    I find it amusing when some people put a lot of faith in just one abnormal result (up or down). The laws of probability might be a good read if such comments are going to be made.
    I am not sure why last thursdays result ended up the way it did for the Today show but one abnormal result does not indicate a change.
