  1. @Cam Reed

    Yes The Block was doing better but it probably appeals to a broader audience, whereas BB skews young. Put simply, broader appeal = more viewers. Adelaide and Perth are also dragging BB down nationally as viewers stay loyal to Seven.

  2. Hey everyone, let’s make an adjustment to the success of viewer rates. Let’s agree that over 700.000 viewers defines a successful show, because the tv market has changed again! Masterchef and Big Brother were always on top and they still should be, right? So from now on 700.000 viewers, everyone okay with that? Okay, cool that we talked about that

  3. Arrogant programming managers who view fta tv viewers as something they can easily manipulate can bring a network down but with 7 and 9 both showing major popular sport they will survive such behavior easier than ten. 10 has lifted F1 to good numbers but only shows it on One live in Adelaide and Perth. Why? I hope they show the big bash cricket on One in HD. The penetration of digital equipment capable of receiving HD channels is high enough now as the cricket on GEM has proven lately. 🙂

  4. Agree, Big Brother is doing just fine ratings wise. Delivering in spades in the demos.

    Also agree, please cut back on the 90 minute episodes. Save these for ‘event’ episodes, not daily shows.

  5. @advoc8 – I was at Ten when they slid down hill and are only just now slowly recovering by introducing more drama programming etc. It will take possibly 2 more years to fully recover. Ten had the most reality shows and was rubbished by 7 and 9 for it. Now look – 7 and 9 have more than 10. The voice is still good but in danger of the judges showing too much of their egos instead of helping the talent. Seal is a worry there. He dropped his best people because he wanted to develop the 2nd grade talent a bit more. We almost switched off when that happened.
    Big Brother was more interesting on Ten and Friday night live was very good. Then Kyle or mr. ego hosted the show and it collapsed. 9 spend little money on BB and that is why it will die soon.
    Simon Cowell has revamped XFactor and 7 are lucky that he did because it will a a winner for sure this year. We are enjoying it.
    Arrogant…

  6. I think bb is doing fine 983 isnt that bad. I agree with bettestreep2008. And like alvar said if it does better than big bang and well in the demos nine will be happy. Plus people are complaining that its too long if there was a live feed yes it would be too long but there isn’t. I guess Nine cant please everyone.

  7. @alvar An hour would be better, even though it is doing well in all demos, I can see it slide slightly more if it is trying to attract the younger viewer. Attention spans could wane in that group, though I guess it is a show that allows for multi-tasking, so perhaps it will be okay.

    The Block did pull 1.37 mill last week and 1.27 mill the week before with similar competition and The Big Bang Theory doing just as well on GO! (the Ashes on the 1.27 mill week only), so 9 likely need to be careful not to overdo Big Brother with long shows.

  8. bettestreep2008

    Big Brother almost gets 1m on a night that is well known to be a low rating one.

    It won all the key demographics.

    Yet people are saying it is a flop?

    I am betting Ten is kicking itself for ruining this show when they had it and then allowing Nine to do it.

  9. @Cam Reed

    I agree. BB should be no longer than 1 hour each night, 5 nights a week. Otherwise it becomes too drawn out and not really perceived as must see viewing.

    But I think as long as BB outrates the alternative, being Big Bang repeats, Nine would be happy.

  10. I am glad to see that other people think that Slide will fail for Seven. Why do we have to see the same half a dozen comedians do the rounds of all the network ‘comedy’ shows.

  11. Whilst all my feelings go out to those employees who will feel the first and most pain as per usual, when management make the wrong decisions and adopt an air of arrogance after achieving near dominate market/ratings share, and eventually coming close to treating viewers as necessary evils.
    I wonder how long it will be before someone at Network Seven, associates ” Budget Overruns” with their attitude of disrespecting viewers, and the arrogance and frequency of ” Programme Overruns” compounded by the increasing lazy use of ” TBA ” or the insulting last minute/progressive ” EPG” manipulations.
    Is their disrespect for viewers, starting to ” Back Fire”??, because if we are no longer watching, we wont care how much they stuff around with erratic programming and how big their ” Stable of Biased Right Wingers” becomes, I wonder why their “Truth O Meter” is in hiding??

  12. Glad that formal wars is flopping, my daughter watched it and she’s very thankful that we didn’t participate in this show.

    Nine news in QLD have won Monday to Thursday against Seven news with pretty convincing figures. I’m surprised by the resurgence.

  13. @The Other Adam, I’m with @TheTVGuru

    The demo’s is what they really look at. And Thursday is a notoriously low ratings night.

    That’s why X Factor doesn’t air on Thursdays. But, due to the format, Big Brother does.

  14. @hannigans_heroes, that’s exactly what I’ve been saying lately. Seven is going down the same route with crappy reality shows and i’ve said it will hurt them and with those ratings I was right. All 7 has now is X-Factor. I don’t know what they were thinking with Marry My Boy and Formal Wars, and Slide Show will flop too. Should have learnt from Ten.

  15. @The Other Adam, not necessarily, for 1 it topped all 3 Demos, which is really important, 2nd, its primary channel share was 6% higher than that of 7’s

  16. I’m thinking 1.5 hours of Big Brother is way too much for the casual viewer who lifted that rating above a million, I can see it dropping off more and more unless they trim it down time wise.

  17. hannigans_heroes

    Great numbers for Seven…

    Anyone else having flashbacks to this time last year and Ten’s onslaught of cheap reality-related failures? Seven, did you learn nothing from that downfall?
