      1. … & ‘Bluey’. Never forget Bluey.

        Actually, having recently had a good look at the Timeshifted Ratings that David provides, I was surprised that it’s actually the ABC which is really hitting a home run with extra viewers. ‘Vera’ is especially doing well of late. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised all that much, since iView is probably the most reliable of the catch-up’s to use.

  1. After all the comment about shows making money did any shows other then the news make any ?? Need another stat to add to total people and demos showing each shows profit or loss to the network for the week.Numbers mean nothing if shows are not making money for you. Looks like the licence to print money for a TV licence is well in the past looking at recent financial reports released by the networks.
