  1. I am really sad that: “Losing those Big Bang replays to Seven is costing Nine.”
    Mostly that the replays are rating really highly. Why do people watch repeats over and over? There are so many shows that never get replayed and yet the TV has been saturated with TBBT for years….

    • ‘Big Bang’ is clever, well written and acted and appeals to a wide number of people-more than could be said for many shows, even at first run (Josh Thomas, any one?).

  2. Secret Squïrrel

    Interesting to see that How The Rich Get Hitched was 21st in Total People but managed to crack 5th in 16-39.

    Also, Seven can show two eps of TBBT in an hour on 7mate but apparently need 1½ hours on 7? So that’s 45 min of program and 45 minutes of ads betw 8:45pm and 10:15pm!

  3. I was home late last night, saw the second half of HYBPA. Then watched Greys and HTGAWM. How did they rate? I am guessing Murder is in the low 100’s again?
