  1. Seven is in a bit of a mess if you take AFL away from the schedule. SAS Australia has peaked and gone over a cliff. The Voice spin off was a dud. I can’t even recall what they’ve been airing after the stripped reality shows. Dancing is the only bright spot. They want to hope Voice can maintain its initial relaunch figures that were artificially inflated because of post Olympics promotional bounce, but all the momentum is now with Nine . Wouldn’t even know where to start with Ten, they’re just a total and utter mess.

    1. I agree with you Ryan that Seven have no response to MAFS; that said, sevens morning and evening news still is consistently number 1 and morning tv, pays the bills. SAS does ok (dwarfed by MAFS) with 7 day catch-up numbers and the voice spin off was really just to fill week 1 of ratings before the Winter Olympics and considering the juggernaut that is MAFS, it did ok numbers. And also agree AFL vs NRL on FTA is no contest (except for SOO).

  2. According to TV Week, Croc Dundee was meant to be on Tuesday, and the sequel last night. For some reason (probably related to the split scheduling), they showed Bohemian Rhapsody on Tuesday, and the first Dundee last night. I assume both Seven and Nine are just showing filler content until Q2 shows start.

  3. “Crocodile Dundee -yes, really- (229,000 in 4 cities)”
    Not surprising – if you want to watch on TV a half decent movie made this century, you have to pay for it. That’s what they want.
