  1. It never ceases to amaze me how 10’s fan club are all the time attempting to convince folk that they can fix their dying network.
    Moving shows that viewers simply don’t like watching from one day to the next and altering starting times will not solve the problem. A dog is a dog, regardless of where or when it’s shown.
    Surely the past four years have proven that to be the case.
    Give us all a break, please.

  2. Thursday nights are for Star Trek Deep Space Nine lovers it seems, nothing much else on. I watch Embarrassing Bodies & Law & Order SVU most of the time.

  3. TEN should keep their 5 pm news and move The Project back to 7 Pm where it belongs. If they can get the 6pm to 7pm slot going they will be on their way. I think the time is ripe to try something totally new in this timeslot. With news everywhere, people can watch it any hour so viewers would be open to the idea of watching something new at 6pm and watching news either earlier or later. Also, they should move the late night news to 9pm or 9.30 pm.

  4. @Timinperth

    Nine stopped airing Top Gear in Adelaide and Perth due to dismal ratings in these cities. From memory the last ep only pulled 25,000 in Perth, which is at least a quarter of what Channel 7 shows rate on an average night.

  5. @Daniel – Ten is never going back to a permanent news bulletin at 6pm. The last thing Ten should do is stuff around with their flagship bulletin and high rating soap.

  6. I am sure if Survivor was on Nine not Go! then it would be doing better than Top Gear.
    Also it was nice of Go! to start 30 mins earlier last night with no warning. Thank goodness for daylight savings because I am in Qld & got a facebook update from Go! that it was starting.(8pm/) so I was prepared,

  7. Bold and the Beautiful, Ten News and The Project are often Ten’s highest rated shows of the night. Moving them makes no sense.

    @HeyHey_Variety

    I suspect Deal will be a mix of pre recorded and repeated episodes now that its in the quieter 5pm slot.

  8. @SAgr8 Dunno if the 5:30-6:30pm news slot would work.

    I reckon Ten need National News at 4:30pm, BATB at 5:30pm, then Local News at 6pm, followed by The Project at 6:30pm.

  9. bettestreep2008

    David, apologies if you’ve answered this before – but what happens to the ratings systems when the Analog network closes down on December 10?

    Wouldn’t that mean that every household will have access to the digital stations so no need for separate reporting of analog and digital stations?

    And sAgr8 – there has been plenty of constructive criticism from David and followers of this site about Ten and it’s woes these past few years. I believe Ten has people monitoring the discussions here, taking our suggestions to the 7 figure salaried executives and then promptly thrown in the bin.

    I agree that The Project should revert back to a tight, fast paced, 20 minute show (packed into 30) rather than the long tedious 20 minute show (packed into 60) that is dragging Ten’s weekday ratings down.

  10. I thought it was a great night. Catalyst and Redesign My Brain were great viewing. Not your normal entertainment shows but the fact that these shows can pull these sort of ratings is a great story.

  11. Ch.10 move your news from 5.30 to 6.30 following The Bold and The Beautiful, have something refreshing at 6.30 (maybe Biggest Loser, Masterchef etc) and put The Project back to 1/2 an hour at 7pm where it first began and once got 1m viewers! The Project is taking up too much prime time for too little return!

  12. Is that a record for Catalyst? Shows what some blatant cross-promotion from ABC Radio, and a subject close to peoples hearts (boom boom) can do.

    I think Masters of Sex deserves more viewers than 211k.

  13. Even the newses are struggling to get 1m.
    Thursday is the new Friday.

    In the old days people would watch the most interesting TV on in a slot. Now people, especially the younger demographics, have many other options including catchups and DVR recordings of stuff that clashed on Sunday and Monday night.

    And anything that exciting enough to change that would be better used competing earlier in the week. This is the same as it has always been, it just happening on Thursday (and even Wednesday at times) instead of just Friday and Saturday nights.

  14. Most Thursdays, Big Bang Theory on GO! tops 300K. Those viewers who haven’t given up and still want to watch something, see TBBT is their most appealing option.

  15. jezza the first original one

    I have said all year that apart from The Footy Show, Thurdays have been there for the taking all along.

    If ch10 are to recover they should start by winning thu-sat and getting back to 3rd overall then consolidating it and build a platform from there.

  16. What a weird night. Thursdays are there for the taking if someone is creative enough.
