  1. David so was the ratings for this Sunday was so controversial that someone threatened legal action over them? Therefore you had to turn the comments off. 😉

    Seriously I’m guessing it was because of that other story and it was an oversight.

    I lastly want to say I loved Downton and don’t mind if they put it on next year after Bones ends.

  2. Nine will come second. Ten aren’t strong enough. But Nine definitely have Saturday night.

    It’ll be very interesting to see how the Opening Ceremony rates being that it’s in the morning on a Saturday, arguably a better timeslot than late Friday night for Beijing.

  3. Once Upon a Time is pulling disappointing numbers

    Sunday Night: 1.34m
    OUAT: 913k
    Downton Abbey: 1.52m

    Billy Connolly’s Route 66 in the same timeslot last week pulled 1.23m. 913k is not a bad figure but when you look at Seven’s night overall you’d expect a bit more for the prime 7:30 Sunday timeslot

  4. Why isn’t Ten showing the first episode of one of their post Olympics shows – Puberty Blues, I Will Survive, Everybody Dance Now and that wedding show I won’t be watching – after the Masterchef finale?

    What a waste of a huge audience if they stick with House ….

  5. Really enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada on Ten on Friday night.

    I missed it the last eight times they showed it this year.

    I was worried that I’d have to wait at least three weeks for them to show it again if I missed it. Phew!

  6. Guess whats after mc finale– the show that hasnt done well for yrs and is abou to end- House! I mean they might get 600,000 after the mc finale but they should be putting on a show that will pull 1m plus, come on Ten use your brains and think, there must be a show out there you can use
