  1. I’ll agree with Pertinax that the ABC will stick with The Time of Our Lives. Unless something strange occurs.

    I did notice SBS tried to get the Seal Effect for The Observer Effect with the ad. It doesn’t seem to have worked. Although it is up compared to two weeks ago.

  2. The Endeavour figures are the average for 9:50-11:50pm. It is on too late to rate above 400k. By staggering A Place to Call Home Seven are still winning that late night slot though.

    Girls and Fugue were excellent episodes. It’s a shame that good dramas must be treated this way these days.

    The ABC will stick with TOOL on Sundays. It wouldn’t do any better anywhere else and they aren’t dependent on ratings for income.

  3. Nine seem happy with the State of Origin and The Block running to run repeats and old movies in many slots and save content for later.

    They have some episodes of The Mentalist and POI left which will allow them to put on new eps just before October.

    October has been carnage the last two years with The X Factor and new and returning US shows while the audience is more concerned with the approaching Summer.
