    How long has Breakfast got to hit a target audience, Music Videoes with News updates every 15 mins would get more than 30,000!

  2. Tuesdays BBT was billed as a repeat at 8.00, then a new ep at 8.30, so I missed the 8.00. But when i turned over and saw the end of the 8.00 ep, it seemed like a new one, as I hadn’t seen it. Can someone please confirm if the 8.00pm BBT was new or repeat?

  3. Good night for Seven and TEN although Rafters seems to have lost its mojo. Maybe next week a Once Upon a Time lead in could make it rise? Nine all of a sudden came to a crashing halt. I really hope Seven can snag this week. That will show that you need more than 1 show in your schedule to win a week. It’ll be a close one regardless.

    Talking Once how do you think it will do David? I think around 1.4-1.5m although these days my ratings predictions have been quite off.

  4. David,
    I was just wondering because I am interested in the Breaky TV ratings. A few days ago you had the Breaky TV ratings up and Today won, so I was just wondering to see how often Today wins (Not that I want them too!) And I know you put them up many times when Sunrise wins. Also, do you know if Sunrise are still going to NBC Today in New York?

    I think many people are watching The Block and recording MC and vice versa.

    When The Block is over.. I’m sure MC will return to the usual 1.4-1.5 million each night.

  6. Given BBT only has 2 more weeks of new shows for the season I thought the numbers would have been better.

    Good on TEN and TBL, it’s nice to have a 3rd player into the mix for a change, I hope with MC we have many more nights where it’s not Nine or Seven taking all the honers.

    And why is it Seven insists on showing 2x eps of Missing, when they are not that far behind the US? I missed (no pun intended) the 2nd one last night because it was too late, lucky I recorded it.

    • No. There are plenty of times I have posted results when Sunrise wins (can’t recall any for the others!). I post them sporadically, but a Today win is rare so it adds a point of difference.

  7. Hate to say it but Masterchef is really getting on my nerves.

    George and Matt need to realise that the show is not about them. Their over top antics are ruining the whole show for me.

    It annoyed me on Sunday night but I gave it a go again last night. No third chances for me.

    Heh, love the amount of spin that comes out of Ten. Looks like they won the demos for the night but that doesn’t seem to have the same zing, even tho’ it’s what ultimately counts revenue-wise.

  9. Some what of a worry there with both Rafters and Masterchef not quite getting what they once did, even without any strong competition.

    And Price Is Right took a bit of a tumble on day 2, hope it hangs in there.
