  1. @Sasha Sorak…Love Actually had 560,000 total viewers watching from 8.37pm-11.31pm, with Seven getting 587,000 and Nine 779,000. Love Actually also won in the 18-49 and 16-39 demographics. So, even though this movie is repeated often, it is obviously still a viewer favourite and was a good alternative to sport on Seven and Nine, especially for the female demographic.

  2. “Soooo how did Love Actually rate? hahahahaha’

    It won’t really matter to TEN. They will have already scheduled it to run it another 8 weeks, right after “About a Boy” “Billy Elliot” and “Jaws”.

  3. Very interesting Friday Night ratings. Not only did the tennis get beaten by the cricket, helping Nine News to win the night and Seven News to slump to 5th, but TEN got beaten by the ABC – again!!!

  4. @ tmorgan – I know exactly what you mean 7s graphics are horrid and the clothes some of the presenters wear are plain ugly.

    @ dakota – wouldn’t worry about Neighbours most of it’s audience are still in party mode it’ll pick up come feb. Doesn’t matter anyway 10 would be raking in the $$ thanks to the demos it attracts and it does well in the UK.

    On to the friday ratings – looks like the cricket really gave the tennis a hiding. Personally I prefer the tennis but seems I’m in the minority.

  5. Seven wouldnt skip the news for the tennis. That would give nine the entire audience of both networks and seven news would be history.
    As for ABC’s new news channel, I doubt any damage would be done to 7 or 9. People will still want to watch their local news and ABC will be all national. And I bet one of the commericals, probs nine will bring out their own news channel soon. Nine has been acting like CNN with all its Live and Streambox bumpers. Still would prefer Nine over 7 though. Seven has atrocious graphics and the worst clothing here in brisbane. Talitha Cummings deserves to be shot with the clothes she wears.

  6. Hey Boogie (Love the name btw :o) – altho I loved Doogie too hehe)

    Yeah from what i’ve gathered the ratings aren’t Hugely important here thanks to the UK, and in context of what ratings are normally like these days both here and in the UK, it rates well over there, enough for it to stay on. But it just makes me nervous when its so low. I’m sure it’ll be great this year, its an Anniversary year so it’ll garner enough attention and go back to normal with any luck.

  7. Does Ten have a stake in overseas sales of Neighbours? Because if it does own a decent chunk then they probably wouldn’t care what it rated domestically. Ramsay St is probably writing its own ticket.

  8. Hey Guys,

    Digital Spy UK has a small article about Neighbours achieving what they believe to be one of the lowest audiences here in Australia its ever had – citing approx 400k.

    I’m hoping that’s just because they started so early, either that or Malcolm In The Middle is a poor lead-in compared to The Simpsons!? I’m not going to start worrying until after Ratings start again though… I just hope things get better…

  9. David, I’d like your opinion on this.

    Channel 7 has promoted the hell out of Cougar Town, before and during tennis, much like they promoted Prison Break a couple of years back. Prison Break got 1.9m viewers for the pilot here, but due to the fact it is heavily serialized, it fell away fairly quickly. What are your predictions for Cougar Town pilot. It got 11.5m in the US, but has since steadied out at around 7.6-7.9m

    Also, the other heavily promoted shows

    V and Underbelly for 9.

    Good Wife and House for 10.
