  2. Hello David, I think the Home and Away figures are actually 397,000 and 371,000 per the table on the Ratings page for this date.

    As usual thank you for providing a fascinating set of numbers. Nine’s News drop below Seven has stretched out from about 100,000 to close to 150,000 later in the week. This Summer may see the two main news services dip below 500,000 for the first time on certain days. If that does occur and each service can only get 1 in 50 of the populace to watch the then credibility and reach will be drastically diminished.

    The Ten News/Project 2.5 hour slot cannot raise about 236,000 people and 100,000 less through at least part of the timeslot. This is manifestly unacceptable but Ten just keep chugging on doing exactly the same thing and knowing it will be a failure.

    The penetration and value of free-to-air television really is diminishing on a week by week basis.

    1. Might be cheaper for Ten to produce the Ten News/Project 2.5 hour slot; if they did have an alternative, it would probably cost more and attract lower/same ratings anyway. So persist with it to keep the beancounters happy and enable the network to promote its on-air talent such as Sandra Sully and Lisa Wilkinson et al.

    2. Going through this perspective, this 10 News figure was very unacceptable. Back in the 2000s, TEN News used to be No 1 in its 5pm tiemslot. But at the start of 2010, things deteriorated and 10 simply had difficulties establishing its 6pm timeslot. TEN News never recovered in late 2011 when they chopped & changed news programs and losing a lot of staff members. And judging about the ratings, their audience numbers have been in decline since 2007.

      1. All that’s true… one of the main root causes was also whenever Ten lost its commitment to seven days live, local evening bulletins — if you only have national bulletins on Sat/Sun and sometimes during holiday periods then a decent chunk of viewers will lose faith as many watch (at least partly) to see local stories from their town/city/state.
