  1. Will be interesting to see if Idol’s ratings lifted last night, given that Harry Connick Jr was guest judge. In the wake of the blackface controversy, people may have viewed in out of curiousity to see him. I saw part of the show last night. Harry was great, such a pleasant, personable bloke, but the talent, bar a couple of them, is still pretty ordinary. I predict Stan will eventually win it. He’s starting to distance himself from the rest of the pack, as Wes Carr did last season. The big band theme last night was much better than that stupid Pink theme last week.

  2. watched idol tonight and was pretty impressed with the performances! they are getting better and better and im glad the brickie went. rove was funny 2 esp when they got delta on the golf buggie and the peter chasing after them in a grandmas cart, lol.

  3. Seven needs to stop swapping around certain shows if they want to keep them rating. I think that The Amazing Race at 9:30 is a poor move, much better suited to 7:30 IMO due to wider potential audience and the lesser competition. 1million v 730 000 proves my point.

  4. There probably would have been a bigger audience for Hey Hey repeats….if we knew they were on and where…….Channel Nine changed their minds sooo many times is was ridiculous!!!!!
    First it was the following Saturday……Like Hello….the show is called Hey Hey Its Saturday…….I …my family and friends all settled down to watch…..and what do we get…… a movie we have seen dozens of times…..and a pre recorded message when one rang the TV station……
    Then it was to be run after the 2nd program……again….a no show…….and finally last nite….without any fanfare on GO!…..I only discovered ti halfway through…..when flicking around on the remote…….
    Also Drop Dead Diva was supposed to start again on Sept. 28th….Where has it gone?!?!?!?…….Some repeats ….again on Go!…..but you have to be a mind reader to find them……as again…..good ole channel nine…..keeps changing the times…….
    No wonder they are slipping…….it is all about customers service and satisfaction….they supply neither……

  5. @Harry. Yeah, totally agree about Charlie Pickering. His jaded/I’m totally bored ****less style of delivery is terrible. He always sounds like he’s there on sufferance. I don’t care for him at all. Don’t get me started on Dave Hughes – God, he’s awful.

  6. Yeah the 7PM Project has been the biggest failure of the year. I personally dont mind it, depends what news stories they talk about. Charlie Pickering sounds so enthusiastic.. Not. Seriously, his voice is underwhelming and bores me.

    Looks like TEN will have to go back to MC / TBL at 7.00 in 2010.

  7. 552,000 people for the 7pm Report on Friday night. Ouch!!!! Could somebody hurry up and stick a fork in this turkey, it’s done. To rate that poorly in such a key timeslot is unforgivable. There is no way it will be return to that timeslot in 2010, unless 10 truly have a ratings death wish. They may rework it for a later timeslot, but somehow I doubt it. Why bother? It is probably never going to rate very well.

  8. @Trev:

    You never know! If 7PM’s core audience can shift to another timeslot TEN will be laughing. Imagine if they were able to retain 500-700k viewers at like 10:30 or 11 each night? Their late-night shares would prop up their overall shares a lot.
