  1. Yep 10 should move this is us to Sundays 8.30 or 9.30, move 24 to One HD, Bring back local news on at least Sundays because I don’t want to hear boring news about the eastern states I want to know local news thanks

  2. CA should consider their schedule with games from 2018 with the new TV broadcast deal. Yesterday’s figure wasn’t good. After BBL, Aus played 3 ODIs in NZ before coming back to play T20s against SL.

  3. All the international cricket games these days just seem to randomly appear with no purpose and is different every year – the 4th international team played this summer for these T20’s. Need to be an actual competition like the old days and not just random one days series’, tests and T20’s (which no doubt why the Ashes does so well, and look at how Big Bash did this year – better than alot of the international cricket).

  4. What a shock!

    Seven had a big win thanks to big numbers from MKR & Hoges (can’t believe it actually increased). As well as topping the key demos.

    Disappointing cricket figures for Nine again, especially outside of Melbourne. Even Midsomer Murders rated higher! CA need to re-consider their scheduling for 2018.

    Great for I’m A Celebrity, big jump, Ten will be happy.

  5. Not many people would’ve predicted that Hoges would pull almost exactly the same numbers for the second half after the first was bagged so much. That photo looks fittingly awful.

    Count me as another who didn’t watch anything on FTA last night.

  6. Newsflash, Ten. No one wants or needs a 5pm national news bulletin on weekends, particularly in Summer. The state based presenters should work for an hour on Sundays at 6pm.

    Amazing how well Celebrity did with such appalling lead in numbers. And clearly people want something a little lighter than American terrorism dramas post Celebrity too.

  7. I think 7 are disappointed has to how Hoges rated with the viewers, granted that they advertised it constantly over the summer with the tagline: the drama event event of the year.
    Cant wait 4 tonight: MAFS vs MKR

  8. Ugh 10, cmon, what a wasted opportunity, get rid of that pathetic lineup, it’s only good to compete with SBS after 8:30pm and before 7!

    So many issues with the schedule, they take 1 step forward and 3 steps back – disappointing
