  1. I wish people would get over Channel Nine, it hasn’t been the same since Mr Packer passed away, the new owners think they know what they’re doing but treat their audience like idiots. It’s about time Nine was knocked off their perch and didn’t hold themselves in such high regard, sorry guys but your moment is gone!

  2. It’s getting boring. Personally I don’t think 7 deserve the figures it gets. Is it a case of people’s viewing habits now and just sticking with 7 and not even looking at the other channels? Re YTT, it actually isn’t bad. It’s not must watch TV but the kids love it.

  3. Seriously, I’m not watching anything on Nine this week, maybe a bit of cricket but what else is there? There’s no more Sherlock, well there’s no more real Sherlock.

  4. I’m a bit surprised that nobody’s mentioned YTT ratings, from all the hooha that it got before the ratings started, it’s already dropped out of the top ten, a month in. Perhaps when the cricket is over, it can properly challenge the other shows.

  5. Guy- I think it also has alot to do with the way the others treat viewers. Little annoying things like how the cricket commentators crap on about ch 9 shows that they watch all the time and love them lol and the contempt regarding NRL coverage. Constantly changing their schedules too. Oh and can someone please explain the logic as to why ch9 show promos often exclude the screening time? Like they say BBT tonight on nine. What damn time ? Lol

  6. Usually you might expect a few percentage points between first and second – but that much, consistently, it almost seems?

    Either Seven have lifted their game even more so from last year, or the other channels are seriously dropping the ball.

    In danger of this becoming a one horse race soon.

    Come on, Other TV Channels: a bit of competition is better for all of us. 🙂

  7. Wow. Seven seem to be getting bigger and bigger margins each and every week. Its no wonder though. The opposition have nothing to show. They are showing endless repeats and new content is hard to come by. Seven have a full schedule of first run programming minus the movies that aired on Saturday. Seven are leaders of the pack for a reason and they will take 2012 quite comprehensively i would like to think. Nine haven’t won an official ratings week since 2010. That is a long time between drinks.

    TEN are in huge trouble. Nothing much is going to change with them. The programmers are getting worse than Nine!
