  1. Then that Sucks! it’s no where near 100% correct.
    The show that you like can get Axed! when technically that show could easily be rating better than the others.

  2. All People numbers may be disapointing….but BB clearly won in the advertiser friendly demos…..so Nine will still be happy. The only question is what were they guaranteeing in relation to ratings to those advertisers. Could be a bit down on predictions. From a channel perspective, anything less that a million would be not what Nine was hoping for……is it problematic – I think so. The acid test will be next Sunday/Monday. Could be down hill from there.

  3. @italianguy1987

    Numbers have always mattered. Advertisers want eyeballs for their product.

    As for the ratings system – it’s statistically based, so it does reflect “true viewership”.

    Apart from the news and AFL nothing I watch is ever in the top 20 programs – I’m pretty happy about that.

    • Frankly you would know if you were in the OzTAM panel because you would have been approached and agreed to participate with a ratings box attached to your TV / phone, and agreed to follow their procedures when viewing. Like 99% of us, you’re not actually part of their panel survey.

  4. Secret Squirrel

    @italianguy1987 – “When did numbers become so important?”

    I don’t know how many times this needs to be said but they’ve always been important. Running a TV station costs money – where do think that comes from? Mostly from advertisers. How do advertisers know where to buy air-time and how much it should cost? Ratings.

    The networks don’t give a rat’s about 600,000 people watching a show in early prime-time if they think that they can get a million (or 600,000 in a more advertiser-friendly demographic) to watch some other program.

    It’s just business. It’s not personal.

  5. Big Brother is still the most watched show other than News/Current Affairs.

    David, I should probably know this, but do ratings include those people who PVR and watch later (like me)?

  6. italianguy1987

    I have always been a loyal viewer of TEN and I am glad their numbers were not as bad as they have previously been.

    Last night was an okay night for them and for The Project to get around 600,000 is good for a show that is nomally getting around 400,000 that’s good.

    I feel so sorry for TEN as before people were so concerned with ratings and numbers to rate a success of a show, it was doing quite well.

    Now if a show gets lower than 1 mil it isn’t a success. When did numbers become so important??

    If a show gets say 600,000 each time it’s on and execs say ”oh no. let’s take the show off the air. it’s not getting good numbers”, do they think about those 600,000 people who actually do watch it.

    I think everyone needs one of those boxes to measure raitings. I don’t have one and my viewing of shows isn’t being recorded. These numbers are so general it doesn’t really reflect the true viewership.

  7. I am happy that ABC News dominated Big Brother in the 7pm timeslot. Less than a week and BB has already lost almost half its debut audience. That can’t be a good sign

  8. Hmm I wonder if BB will keep dropping. I realise Thursday ratings tend not to be as high as let’s say Sun/Mon but it’s almost half of its debut numbers.

  9. it seems that big brother is declining in ratings which it isn’t good as a fan of the show its not good to see if it keeps it up i don’t think it will get another season…

  10. bettestreep2008

    Ten comes fourth yet again.

    Sadly I missed Before the game because the new late timeslot on Thursdays really doesn’t suit me.

    C’mon Ten – put BTG back on Saturday 6.30pm and how about some NEW eps of MF, NCIS and L&O:SVU!

    Beaten by repeats of Midsomer Murders???

    Oh the shame, the shame of it all….
