OzTAM Overnights: Monday 22 April 2013


  1. It makes me laugh that people seem so surprised at the rating results. Same sample of people from Oztam same old viewing habits. Even if 10 had a hit show it would not rate the same as if on 7 or 9.

  2. Does the fact that Grey’s Anatomy loses over half of Revenge’s audience matter? The fact that Revenge started in Brisbane at the late time of 9pm and therefore the following drama airs at the unfriendly time of 10pm. I remember the good old days when you could watch two good dramas between 8:30 and 10:30. Seriously 9-11pm is significantly different, for those that work.
    The fact that networks can choose when to air most of their adverts in the peak 6-9pm, means that the late timeslot is becoming more irrelevant as networks appear to not care about viewer habits. My main gripe is that I rely heavily on my PVR and even allowing 20 minutes leeway is never enough. I have to choose what shows I watch factoring in the variable start and finish times and not recording some shows because it might clash with two already programmed to run over the scheduled time.
    Seriously I wish the ACMA could address this!

    One of the reasons for the constant same old guests is probably because other networks wont allow them to appear on rival networks, and while iam on it, what’s with that attitude here in oz? why is this different in the US, where you can find celebrity guests on another network, is it the fact that the only network which will be allowed to get a plug is ABC or SBS?
