OzTAM Overnights: Tuesday 24 April 2018


  1. Think there figures are some times misleading as I suspect the biggest majority of the 10% share was in footy mad Melbourne only . If based on state by state doubt the same result forSeven mate against other main channels

  2. Ryan1890:: Up against the lies on MKR. The Voice is doing well.
    I’m watching the voice not interested in Mkr drama.
    Watched Dave Hughes show.Denton dosnt interest me.

    • I think the fact that The Voice is currently being promoted as a big clash between judges (on social media at least) is contributing to its falling ratings. I love The Voice but I know quite a few people have switched off as a result. I was tempted to do the same. If I wanted to watch trashy conflict and drama I’d be watching MKR.

      • I would move the project to start at 6.00pm but reduce the panel by one (just have 3 but reduce it to 30mins. Move FF to be permanently on 11. Have Lisa present a current affairs program at 6.30pm. Then at 7pm l would start prime shows eg MasterChef start at 7pm. Have the audience engaged early.

  3. The Voice continues to sink to record lows during Blind Audition episodes. Nine must be disappointed with its performance. Interview held up well in week two, despite a smaller MKR lead in.
