  1. I know I’ve said this before, but I believe there should not be a ratings ‘period’. It should be 365 days a year. When on holidays we still watch tv, but get rubbish programs while still watching all their adds. I say ‘keep the barst***s honest. Keep them all on their toes and create employment.

  2. With the country now home to over 24million people, really none of those numbers impress. No one can crack a million people, i know tgere are heaps of factors involved. Anyway just food for thought

    • Agree the numbers are low in comparison to population. I’ve always had doubts about the accuracy of the OzTam ratings system. I just don’t see how they can come up with figures based on a relatively small sample.

    • Seven News did have over a million one night during the week, but of course each week the bulletin is averaged into a single figure. This is always missed.
