  1. Maev....Sydney

    New Tricks still pulls respectable numbers…no matter how often it is repeated….and yes…I am one that keeps watching…just love it and pick up on little things I missed before.

  2. Seven will have pulled a bit further ahead of revenue share. They are closing in the younger demographics with new content, while Nine is relying more and more on TBBT repeats.

  3. Hard to believe that just a few years ago ten were clear winners of 16-39 and always competitive in 18-49.

    Considering 7 has a reputation on this site as being the geriatric network, those demo margins are very tight with 9. Perhaps striking distance.
