  1. @Dr Heckle – Are you serious? Guess you think all other news media – radio, TV, newapapers, Yahoo, etc., etc., should hold back on the story to suit you. Bye bye.
    @JM- Huh? Then why are you here reading about it?

  2. @ Dr. Heckle. Which rock have you been sleeping under for the past four +years. David explains what is going to happen every time, yet someone just has to complain when a result is revealed. Look forward to reading your next riveting comment later this year 🙂

    David you are a very patient man, especially when having to explain yourself for a third time. I do commend you mate.

    @JM If you have no interest in MKR, or other shows for that matter, then stop reading / commenting about them. Simple solution don’t you think.

  3. I was actually expecting a higher number for the finale since the everyday episodes had about 400k over MC last year. It seems though the finale for both brought similar numbers, interesting…

    Having been on this site for sometime….and realising that some people just skim over things…news and posts…..as soon as I saw DK’s spoiler alerts…plural….for MKR….I just knew there would be a Dr. Heckle….frustrates me…and I am just a visitor.
    Do not know how it could be made any clearer..*sigh*

    Ratings figures for Pictures of You will come down after being adjusted for the overrun of MKR. I’m sure it’s a lovely show, but the minute by minute data will show a steady decline as people give it a look after MKR and decide it’s not for them.

    @Craig – in some ways it’s a shame about TG. I do miss it a bit but I refuse to watch it on Nine after the way they treated it. It would seem that I’m not alone in that regard. I don’t know how long their deal is for but the sooner they give it up so that SBS can have it back, the better.

  6. Why did nine advertise the Two and half men episode as first run, when it was a repeat of the first, first run episode shown this year? Loving Two Broke Girls, but surely we could have seen a first run ep last night.

  7. @deedee I think most people remotes are broken and only the 7 button works, no matter what the other stations do it will not pull people from Seven it seems. Bet you MC stuggles to get 1m in the first few weeks.

  8. That must be the lowest number for a new TG on Nine ever, they are getting better numbers on GO!.

    Good on Seven, but how long is Pictures of You going to run? I didn’t watch last night but want to know when Parenthood will return? With number like that you have to wonder if it was the MKR final or was there something else? That around 1 million more viewers for PoY than PH got last week.

  9. Tomothyd: agreed.

    Dr. Heckle: Sorry you feel that way. Results like this are big news, reported right across the media (see News Ltd, Fairfax sites today). A dedicated TV site would most certainly be remiss not to report it as major news. I also reminded readers in at least two posts yesterday I would be reporting it.

  10. Got home in time for Country Town Rescue and what a great program. (Thanks for the tip David) It will be great to see how it plays out for all the families.

    The ending of MKR was as I tipped as I figured the princess was going to be there at the end when 7 starting toning down the bitch aspect of her. After all nobody wants the baddy to win.

  11. “Seven is already claiming that the Preliminary figures do not reflect the overrun”
    Well, if they actually finished their programs on time, they would have clear figures!

  12. *gripe time* this happens alot: we went out last night (‘cos there’s more to life than tee &/or vee), recorded this show to watch h/lights next day before work, when… dammit… another TVT website spoiler… fark! i’m changing my homepage.

    If headlines such as these merely stated something like “2.67m watch MKR final” with a different pic, we’d still visit most days & respect u in the morning/s. Check out tv.com for their approach to plotlines etc.

    ps. seeing as this aint our blog & it’s free & there’s plenty more fish in the web, who really gives a shitt? And considering the MKR outcome, u probly saved us an hour or two of cringe tv.

    We might “log-in” again sometime later this year. Cheerio :-/

  13. Who Do You Think You Are featuring Shaun Michallef was very well crafted and very moving. A well deserved rating for SBS.

    No doubt Shaun was the right high profile drawcard to launch with. The tactic worked to get me to try (plus the story on TV Tonight).

    The rest of the series is now locked into the PVR so I don’t forget.

  14. Well deserved win to Channel Seven, they can’t put a foot wrong so far this year and are smashing the rest of them out of the park. Loved Pictures of You, really great feelgood stuff. Brian Nankervis is an excellent host, very Michael Parkinson like in that he butts in minimally and gives his guests the centre stage. Such a simple concept for a talk show, but it definitely works.
