  1. Personally i reckon 7 were mad to pay for Big Bang rerun rights, they had already played enough on 9/Go for them to rate very highly now. I occasionally have the 7 reruns on in the background when nothing else i want to watch but then i just get confused & think i’m 9/Go 😉

  2. The Special on Seven didn’t start until 9.27 (EPG said 9.15) – so expect that to be adjusted down, while on Nine, The Block didn’t start until close to 9pm (Sydney) – so its real figures will be lower as well as the first half in most markets will be cricket ratings. Old Big Bangs on Seven almost down to multi channel ratings levels.
