  1. Luckily we have choice, so as there was nothing much on the 3 main commercial networks, I watched Shane Delia’s Moorish Spice Journey and Italy Unpacked on SBS and enjoyed both programs. I then caught most of Goggle Box on TEN after Italy Unpacked finished. Goggle Box has to be one of the funniest shows on TV at the moment. Love it!

  2. Well done Ten and Shine for both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette on Wed. We enjoyed it very much. Good ratings night win for Ten as well which proves that if you show something different and it is good, the viewers will not stay loyal to 9 or 7 🙂

    Watched Family Feud & The Project and then The Bachelorette on 10.
    Recorded Doc Martin and Judge John Deed on 72 for another day.
    Recorded Italy P 1 show on SBS30 for another day.

    Watched The Affair part 5 on PRESTO. 4 days to go be4 NBN-FTTH is active in our house. Then we can stream movies in HD 🙂

  3. Secret Squïrrel

    Settle down everyone, don’t get over-excited. It’s a great result for Ten but what numbers will they get next week? Think it’s a little premature to say that they’re back when they’re still going to be pushed into 4th spot by ABC and in single digit percentages on Saturdays.

    • jezza the first original one

      Yeah I agree. This and Masterchef are tentpoles for ch10. BigLoser is failing, Modfam is shot and the other US imports are not exactly rocking. So good to celebrate, but plenty of hard graft still to do

    • Ten had a good start this year with programming and M/Chef did very well. They are coming back albeit slowly. I am happy with their progress from the bottom of the barrel, slowly rising again. New Foxtel partnership coming very soon now and that will lift Ten even more 🙂

    • spectrum warrior

      You can’t be number one overnight. It’s a slow process. Channel ten have got some “tent poles” up and next they need to hang the canvas. Only then can the clowns enter the big top.

    • Well they knew that the franchise required them t put up top programmes and they rather put on shows for those that do not know how to change channels. In the end those viewers matter little as Ten has just proven and not the first time this year either. 🙂

  4. spectrum warrior

    The “come back kid” channel ten has done it again. I’ve said it before, competition is important to keep FTA alive, and ten have said they are back in the game.

  5. 1.520m for The Final Decision is the biggest number in the history of the Bachelor and Bachelorette combined! Channel 10 have been on fire this year, from the epic seventh season of Masterchef which will have the biggest viewership of the year of any network to outstanding numbers for both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette! They are comeback network and I eagerly look forward to their 2016 lineup. Congratulations!

    • I agree but they have failed with TBL Families as Shine have made it a game instead of all about families exercising and eating healthier. The Red team has spoilt that show for us this year. Shine producers in charge of that need a caning 🙁 So not all winners and it is their fault that viewers have turned off that show 🙁

  6. Great result for Ten with Bachorlette. Definitely back in 2016. Still think this show is worthy of Monday and Tuesday viewing rather than Wednesday and Thursday. Would get better numbers…..

    • Secret Squïrrel

      You keep saying this and as others keep telling you that you are mistaken. It does very well where it is because it’s not having to compete against the big reality guns on 7 and 9. There is no way it would even retain the same numbers let alone steal audience away from either XF or The Block on Mon/Tue. That is fantasy.

    • Why would it get better numbers Monday Tuesday? I don’t see how.

      To me the fact you can achieve 1.5 mil on a Thursday night is a message to the other networks to stop treating Thursday nights like a third weekend night and put on decent programming – clearly the viewers are there.

      And who else these days gets 720k (re Goggle Box) for something finishing after 10pm? Apart from maybe 800 Words on Seven, nothing does that well at those times. Again – clearly people are there and want decent programming on a Thursday night (and I’d even go as far as saying Fri & Sat as well!)

      • I agree. Not everyone goes out on a Friday and Saturday night. Some just want to crash on the couch in front of the telly. My DVD player gets a good work out over the weekends.
