  1. Wouldn’t mind if TEN switched it around a little bit, 5:00pm The Simpsons, 5:30-6:30pm TEN News, 6:30-7:30pm The Project … would suit my getting home schedule better anyway (greedy … I may be).

    Interesting how the Nominations night on Big Brother seems to pull in the lowest ratings each week (not counting Friday’s 30 min show), still think it should be cut to one hour each night.

  2. @Daniel, Ten News used to run until 6.30pm followed by The Project. It’s been done and was a fail.

    Imagine if Ten never messed with the traditional schedule. Simpsons @ 6, Neighbours @ 6.30 and The 7pm Project.

  3. I would like to see Bake Off back next year also. Maybe in a better timeslot. Maybe run The Block Sun – Wed & have Bake Off on Thurs at 7. I just don’t think it was an 8.30 show.
    I am wondering how X Factor results nights will go on Monday seeing that most show around the world except for American Idol seem to be doing away with a separate results show.

  4. I would be interested in an alternative to news at 6pm on ten. I have no interest in watching the simpsons but would be willing to give something else a try if available. I don’t generally watch Neighbours but it seems to rate similar to the simpsons and I would watch it occasionally if on the main channel. I prefer the project at 6.30pm and tend to forget about it on eleven. Ten really need to think outside the box about their programming.

  5. I live regionally and Bakeoff is now starting at 7.30 which is the right time for a family show like this. Previously the kids had to watch on catchup as it was starting at 8.30 or later.
    I think it’s a great show for family viewing and seems more like 10 than 9 to me. They are certainly 10 ratings figures anyway.

  6. @Sunny, I have caught from of Bake Off repeats on GO this week, I actually don’t mind it as it is simple, fun and well edited. Is not trash like Kitchen Rules.
    I have always found Channel Nine to be a dead zone, especially Tuesday nights, in my mind the channel doesnt exist on Tuesdays so I have forgotton it is on since the premiere. Plus 8:30 is a weird time for this show, its a family show in my mind.
    Perhaps if it was on at 7:30 Wednesdays, it would have worked a lot better.
    I am not sure whether the ratings will be in favour for a second season, but if they do they need to keep the same format, editing but a new night.

  7. The Daily Edition is struggling if those figures are indicative of most days. Also disappointing if Mel Doyle can’t give Seven News at 4 a win. And I’ve no doubt they were all thumped by Ten.

  8. Really enjoy watching The Great Australian Bakeoff. Can’t understand why it doesn’t rate higher though.Maybe the majority of viewers prefer the heavily scripted carryons, back stabbing and bitchyness in reality shows like The Block and My Kitchen Rules.
