  1. Not a good figure for ‘Fires’-maybe too soon and close to the bone for many viewers, given what’s likely to happen this summer again (see the northern hemisphere fires so far this year).

  2. Fires deserved more eyeballs – a riveting start to this series but the total TV numbers next week with iview being such an excellent method of watching ABC shows later should bump up the numbers.

    1. Yet to see Fires but will be one of those who watch through iView (Most of my ABC viewing in this way eg Rosehaven and The Newsreader).

      Last night had me trying to work out what to watch – few offerings so much will be viewed later…YTT, Fires, Manhunt. Tuned into The Block and the Rosehaven finale last night.

      Loving the Total TV lifts David. Appreciate it 🙂
