  1. Seven’s main channel way behind 9 last night. Weak programming! May be they can’t afford to buy decent programs because they splurged it all on sporting rights.
    With those ratings, The Biggest Loser is almost dead and buried. It was not even up against any other reality TV.
    NRL did OK in Sydney and Brisbane. Wonder how it rated on 9GEM in Melbourne since the Melbourne Storm were playing.

  2. I like sheep, I must look Shaun up.

    Googlebox made it to number one, well it really makes me wonder just how nosey, or desperate some people are to want to watch other people watching different tv shows. Seems like big brother to me.

    1. Nosey or desperate are not adjectives I would use to describe gogglebox viewers.

      There are two reasons viewers watch Gogglebox.
      Firstly to see someone else’s reaction to a show they watch.
      Secondly there might be a show they weren’t aware of that gets their interest. Gogglebox previously did sus’s the eighties on music videos. After seeing that segment I went a watched the episode.

  3. Gogglebox was the only thing worth watching last night.

    I notice NRL on Nine continues to rate outside the Top 10 & outside the Top 5 key demos (with less than 500k still in total viewers). Foxtel’s new channel seriously impacting? Won’t be flash when the AFL starts next week.

    1. Ch9 would be longing for the days when they had exclusivity on their choice of NRL games.

      But that total is based on 2 cities. NRL was 1st for the night in Brisbane and 2nd (behind 9 News) in Sydney – which isn’t too bad there considering the game was Brisbane vs Melbourne. I don’t think 9 will be panicking about 1st and 2nd in the only 2 markets where the game is shown.
