  1. I realise we’re in a different landscape now, but those A Current Affair ratings (save for tonight) are not at all what I would’ve thought, a show that at times this year has still pulled 700k or higher for certain episodes. Summer vibes? I recall Naomi Robson after wrapping 11 years of TT and like 20 at Seven had a farewell package including video messages from ‘who’s who’ such as chairman Mr Stokes and rated in the millions?

    1. It was an hour episode so I think that dragged the numbrs down. I don’t recall Stokes giving Naomi a farewell, but I do for Mel Doyle. In any case you can’t compare ratings from a decade ago. Hopefully a good crowd turns out for the last tonight, which she deserves.

  2. Relatively poor figures for the Claremont thing given the high amount of promotion for it-whilst it was a big story here in WA in the 1990s, I assume it had limited coverage in the Eastern States, and that a while ago now. Unfortunately no shortage of bad things happening in the world or Australia.

    1. I was reasonably impressed by the Claremont murders. Quite a good production by Channel 10 standards. It was not just a stitch up of 10’s new library material – like the Bali bombing special a few months ago. It was quality and deserved better ratings.

  3. Fisk would surely be on the cards for renewal with those overnight and total tv numbers, just depends on whether Kitty Flanagan has more stories to tell. Looking forward to seeing last night’s episode later today.
