  1. @ Justin

    I like and appreciate a good promo. It’ll only get me to watch something that interests me then it’s up to the programme itself whether I’ll keep watching. Unless the promo tells me they’ve moved the time. That said some of us (including me) like the full credits with the music and sound as originally played for the show or film. The promo just tells us this is an annoying network and you shouldn’t bother with such rude people unless you just can’t wait for the DVDs. Or don’t want to. As I want the ads or promos during the ad break.

    That said the promos as well as not being on time (i.e. late) just makes me flick over that much quicker where the credits might have tempted me to stay as well as watch maybe a promo. But that would imply they might be on time and tasteful. Unfortunately the ABC often tries to be that way. I don’t want it nor appreciate it as they are usually on time so I will wait for the promo after the credits. Unless it’s like Doctor Who with the built in Next Time trailer. That’s fine. I also like the ads too.

    By the way promos instead of credits just tell me not to watch the show or film that is featured rather than getting me to watch it. And especially when they put in something completely opposite what was on. As I said use the ad break. I’ll notice it if it interests me.

  2. Jasecorn, Ten struggles because “daily share” is only calculated on 6pm-midnight. They are dominant during the day (have a look at how many daytime ch 10 programs make the top 100 on the days that David lists them – TB&B gets over 400k, even in summer), but this doesn’t count towards “daily” share. From what I’ve seen, a lot of pople are looking forward to 11, so things should be much more interesting in a couple of weeks (would help if daily share was exactly that though!).

  3. steveany, without promos, people won’t know what other highlights a channel offers or when they are on. And being done in a good way, means you’ll pay attention.

    A promo can make or break the amount of people who watch a show, especially a new series. Very important to ratings success.

  4. I Hate Channel 7

    They cut the credits on most of their shows. So you watch a gripping drama\movie and then 30 seconds you into the next show!

    You got to give us time to recover, thats what the credits were for!

    I avoid watching movies on tv now, as i know they will butcher the credits. By watching it on dvd at least i know i’ll get the music and credits.

  5. Speaking of 10 promos obviously the same person is doing them for Eleven….the Neighbours promo has been done really well. I agree that Ten is my most watched main channel but since GO!, Gem and 7mate started, they have been occupying a bit of my time. Obviously a lot of people have done this as reflected in Ten’s continual slide in the ratings. Hopefully the news block and 11 fixes their problems as they really are my favourite channel.

  6. I agree with @SecretSquirrel and am astounded by @Kenny (66) and @Jasecorn (36) and their rave reviews of Ch 10’s promos!
    I’m 46 and couldn’t give a rats [email protected]#k about any channel’s promos no matter how artsy they are. Nor do most TV viewers, who simply want good programs, run on time and to completion, without ad crawls and cross-promotion and ‘promos’ run over the credits no matter how masterful they are.
    (I’m still in tears from when Ch10 ran promo ads over the credits and music of Apollo 13. Personally I think all promo editors suck.)
    Priorities, people! Promos don’t win ratings.

  7. Secret Squïrrel

    I used to watch quite a bit on Ten but not any more. They lost me as a viewer when they moved all of the shows I was watching to their HD-only channel.

    We have three times as many channels now as we did back in 2007 but I watch less television in total. It’s partly due to program content but more to do with being sick of ad-spam across what I’m trying to watch and getting jerked around by having my favourite shows bumped, dumped, or ridiculously delayed. Commercial networks have made their beds and now they have to lie in them.

  8. @Jasecorn – well, I’m 66 and, too, TEN is my most watched channel. Would be more than 50% with all of the others sharing the other 50%. Agree their promos & presentation far and away the best. (They don’t run “Friday Night at the Movies” on Saturday night either, like Nine/WIN LOL).
    Really looking forward to their new news block.

  9. Obviously its a taste thing, but I never understand how Ten struggles so much. I’m 36 and it’s been my most watched channel in years. And IMO, they put the other channels to shame when it comes to promos for local content. Their editors – especially for the extended “first look” promos they run – are exceptional.

  10. TEN’s got to lift their game or they will be so far behind when the “real” season starts.
    Channel 11 will be “Channel 11”. It won’t be “TEN”. A week 2 points behind ABC1 is disgraceful. No excuses like “holidays”, “young viewers partying” etc.
    Note – Nine won key demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
