  1. Why go to uni to be a jurno? Look at all the newspapers websites. All their jurnos are just bloggers who probably did about two years of high school.
    As far as survior goes. I hope coach stays. He is like that bull****ing uncle We all have. I find him a lot of fun to watch.

  2. I think its funny how ten has advertised ncis as the finale next week and yet on ten.com.au they have ncis episode 8 on there. Does ten think were stupid of something? a show doesnt end after 8 eps you loosers!

  3. why do ten have to play movies that we all have on dvd and have prob seen a thousand times? if anyone puts movies on they should do some research to find out if the movie has been released on dvd and if it has dont play it! we need new movies on our screens if you want us to watch it, or movies that havnt been on dvd for yrs. yeah it will prob cost a bit more but it would prob pay off

  4. Apologies Sydeny Uni is I’m sure a very good university. I don’t however technically accept that journalism is a profession. We’re talking about ratings, what we may or may not do for a living or in our private lives has little to do with the discussion unless we work in television and have some specific insight. I think a lot of Australian journalism is very good. It’s a shame that 4 corners is one if the few shows left where they seem to be resourced enough to really investigate and break stories.

  5. @ Andrew F and Pakes:

    Um, Journalism is actually taught and offered at Sydney University, which is arguably one of the most respected Universities and highly regarded Institutions in this country. Sure, you may question the integrity of Journalists in Australia, and of the state of the profession as a whole, but you need to realise – It is you the viewers, you the listeners, and you the readers that ultimately determine what sort of Journalism we are fed. If you want hard hitting investigative Journalism, watch such programs as the ABC’s Four Corners, Foreign Correspondent, etc. Sure, such programs may not be your piece of cake, but don’t winge, and embrace such Journalism if that’s what you want. The bottom line is though, the majority of Australians have shown what they want, what they want to read, listen to on their way home from work, and watch after a busy day at work, is soft lazy Journalism, evidently through Today Tonight’s number one rating, and top / most watched show status of Wednesday night. If you want hard hitting investigative journalism, watch the ABC, SBS, and embrace such programs, and show the Commercial Television Executives that’s what you want, because at the moment, there’s nothing but mixed messages, and a stronger force for soft lazy news and current affairs, opposed to hard hitting news. So before you question the integrity of Journalists in Australia, and of the profession and try to shift the blame, think again – Take responsibility for your own actions Australia, because maybe if enough of you do, you can revolutionise Journalism in Australia.

  6. Enjoyed the CSI crossover episodes. Good to see them rate reasonably well. Now my points for Nine. The good – reasonably quick turnaround in screening since they aired in the US, screened together and in order (it wouldn’t surprise me if Nine stuffed that up). The bad – as expected, the delays in Miami and NY series were highlighted. With Miami it was evident from the very start and the opening credits how far we are behind the US – no Delko, 2 new CSIs and a new ME (that I was aware of). NY wasn’t as bad – just the update on Danny & Lindsay’s relationship..but still not good enough Nine.

  7. Good on ya David. I left a comment as well. I clicked on Episodes expecting to be able to watch previously aired episode or the very least a recap, but no they had a pic of the final 3. How stupid are they!

  8. No worries jed.. I put the second episode recap up but you must have just missed it while it was being moderated… as for the GO website.. David couldn’t have said it better.. absolute Morons.. I love it that it’s finally getting aired but the way they have treated it regarding spoilers is dreadful – last season’s ad showing the final tribal two weeks out, now this… poor form..

  9. Okay this is what I hate about out ranking system, it’s got everything in the entire day, for 5 different channels. Why not do it like America and just have “primetime”, 3 hours. The 7:30-8:30, 8:30-9:30, 9:30-10:30.

  10. Seven’s embarrassment… 72,000 in the third largest market, and fastest growing capital. Even Perth beat Brisbane’s Deal figure. How low can it go, from a program that often achieved 200k, to now just above 70k. I’d say Seven needed Extra more than Nine needed it.

    So, It’s time for better ratings to be here, Brisbane wants more, yes it’s time…

  11. Cheers Benny. I should have just waited to get a response from here. I actually just went on the GO! website a few minutes ago to check the episodes to see who went, and you wouldn’t believe it, they had the finale episode and the reunion episode up with a lovely picture of the final 3 sitting at tribal council. I’m bloody pissed off now.

    But thanks for the recap of the episode, would have been great to see Tyson go liek that. So what happened in the next episode??

  12. Previously on Survivor… For the second episode Debbi and Coach began to really worry about the old Jalapao tribe sticking together (Stephen, Jt, Taj).. so after bagging her so bad, they approached Sierra about regrouping the old tribe together along with the haridresser lady (she was at exile and the other three Jalapao people were on a reward).. she told them to get stuffed [which was great] but then Coach later went to JT and told him that Sierra had appraoched him with the idea (trying to make her look bad).. nonetheless, Coach won the immunity. After this, Sierra told JT that Coach was lying to him and she had a big argument with Coach and Debbi in front of everyone to prove he was the one who put forward the idea.. Coach continued to lie.. but the old Jalapao tended to believe Sierra. After all this, Sierra still went as the old Jalapao didn’t want to keep her coz they thought she was too unstable/unpredictable. Now it seems inevitable that the old Jalapao are tight as tight and will get to the final three.. The hairdresser lady is with them (4), meaning coach and Debbi (2) are on the outer.. This season has been a bit of a downer following the epic Gabon, but nonetheless stil very enjoyable!

  13. @ Jed..
    So the first episode everyone was absolutely bagging poor little Sierra.. Coach was well, Coach.. He, Tyson and Debbi were all on their egotistical powertrips. In the immunity challenge the survivors were given the opportunity to sit and and eat if they felt comfortable that they were going to be safe.. cos they were all thinking sierra was gone a few sat out, all the boys cept Tyson. Then Sierra just got pipped by Debbi in this lawn bowls type challenege.. so it looked like she was goneskies.. Tyson was saying how he couldnt wait to see Sierra ball her eyes out at Tribal but then everyone other than the powertrippers blindsided him and he went.. Hallelujah! Coach and Debbi are then on the outer to a degree…

  14. I find it a bit strange how Nine treats a triple episode of Two And A Half Men as a single episode and a double episode. In the ratings list the second (7:30) episode is labelled “Ep 1” and the third “Ep 2” and on air last night labelled as a double episode when it was clearly three episodes in a row. It’s like they want to disown the 7:00 episode.

  15. At this risk of getting myself banned, I’d be amazed if journalism was actually taught at one of Australia’s top universities. Certainly not at any with sandstone buildings.
    On a related note I think 900,000 will be the new 1 million next year. It will be really interesting to see what the pvr stats do to the ratings. I wonder what advertisers will think of those numbers. You’d have to assume the ads were being skipped wouldn’t you?
