  1. I tuned into Better Home and G a few Friday nights ago when I had some time as I’ve noticed ratings have soften this year.
    I think BH&G isn’t reflecting the times, when people are budget conscious and looking for value in a cost of living crisis.
    Just a assumption from what I viewed that night and why viewers might not be as eager to make BH&G a Friday nights destination anymore. I understand it likely still wins it’s time a lot but I remember it rating 700k.
    Tuesday was a good test to see if you could pick up a bigger audience. It appears it’s failed to fire only doing the same as a observational repeat doco would’ve done in the same timeslot.

    1. The reason it doesn’t rate 700k anymore is the same reason the news doesn’t rate 1.5million or Home & Away 1.4 or ACA 1.3 or Masterchef 1.6…. audiences are watching shows on paid streaming services, social media or on the TV networks on demand services.

      1. Yer streaming is one reason why shows aren’t getting big numbers any more but also all the shows you mentioned have a stale and predicted factor associated with them as they have been going for years.

      2. There are more promos for 7Plus (or whatever it’s called) and more actual programs on their streaming service than there are for programs on 7 FTA.

  2. Hi David, how did the grand final of Blow Up rate on 7flix? I saw the video on 7plus before I went to bed late last night, and the three floats built for the finale were spectacular. I wished more viewers would have seen the episode.

    1. I’ve been watching it on 7+ as the SD quality of 7Flix looks horrid on a big screen.

      I agree the finalists were amazing. I’ve actually really enjoyed the show and the creations for the most part (apart from the 1hr or less challenges, which were kinda hampered by their time restrictions) have been absolutely amazing.
