1. I’m really enjoying Love Child. But not happy that they recast Lincoln Younes as Mandy McElinney’s son. He speaks more like a young person does today, rolling his words rather than annunciating. Hugo Johnstone-Burt who played him last year, seemed much more of the era, plus he resembled Mandy more. Why did they make the recast, was it because of Lincolns star power or was Hugo unavailable?

  2. Where is the rise in viewers for House Rules coming from? MC is still at 1.2m after three consecutive Tuesdays and Reno Rumble still around 800K. Maybe a slight drop in ABC Numbers? roughly one hundred thousand viewers isn’t a major change, but just curious.

    • Foxtel, Netflix, Presto, etc., secondary channels, or just more viewers overall. 0.4% more Australian residents watching is 100,000 more.

  3. Love Child deserves those good ratings.
    Have found the second series excellent so far – better than Season 1.
    Last night’s ep was especially good – so poignant.

    • Totally agree Angela. I don’t watch anything else on Nine other than Love Child. It is one of the best dramas in recent years. I love they way the have recreated the era, and the storylines and acting are great.

      • Yes Gaz, they have done a great job recreating the vibe of that era.
        All the actors are excellent but Mandy McElhinney as the Matron, Miranda Tapsell as Martha and Ella Scott Lynch as Shirley are standouts.

  4. So glad that MasterChef is rating so well and consistently this season. They advertised it really strongly and the contestants are both talented and personable.

  5. Family Feud is gaining viewers. It’s a easy to watch show at 6pm rather than news. Good to see NCIS get more people watching it.

      • At 6pm, Family Feud last night 699K on three channels.
        At 6.30pm, Project 489K, Neighbours 280K, Mash 163K. All up that’s 932K.
        I guess this is why FF is still roadblocked across the Ten Network…

        • And if FF was not simulcast – it would still be 699k for Family Feud on Ten + another 150k or so on other two channels watching alternative content – would be better for Ten not to simulcast.

          Show’s been around long enough now – anyone who wants to watch it will watch it on the channel it airs on.

  6. Yes Nine did well seeing an opportunity and getting Love Child on Tuesdays. It’s left them with 2 eps of this season of TBBT sitting around.
