  1. Do people realise that Hot seat airs at 4pm in Adelaide and 3pm in Perth so you can’t do a like for like comparison with The Chase Australia’s ratings?

    1. Yeh pretty sure Nine only care for S/M/B anyway – but the regular wins aren’t there much. Still a better show than Tipping Point – need a brand new format rather than stale old gameshows.

  2. Million Dollar Island seems to have found it’s level. A flop, but a stable flop where those who stuck around for episode 2 seem to be sticking with it.

  3. Those ratings are concerning for Hot Seat…. It has unfortunately hit its natural end like Deal or No Deal did. Probably time to wind it up.

  4. I just don’t see myself watching any new reality show on FTA ever again… it might be an outlandish comment, but I mean it. I literally just don’t have the time for their stripped nonsense anymore. Give me a once a week, tightly produced and edited reality show and I’ll give it a go for sure, but I can’t give up 5+ hours of my tv watching time weekly… The only one I make time for now is Aus Survivor (the Amazing Race has gone all crazy with casting “celebrities” so I’m out) and that’s only because I have a long history with that franchise, even I groan at that being stripped.

  5. I don’t usually take note of the 5:30 lead in, but it seems the lower numbers for Hot Seat are impacting the news. I wonder if the Tipping Point 9(ex-pats version) will fill in this spot as a test run?

  6. Its a shame the weather knocked out first session of Ashes last night.
    Would be great if 9 could provide highlight package of last day historic Aust. win prior to Origin on Gem tonight
