  1. “The Secrets She Keeps was 165,000” – It is sad that a first run (on FTA) Aussie drama in prime time has so few viewers. We keep being told that Australians want to watch stories (movies/drama series) about themselves.
    Channel 10 would attract more eyeballs if it showed The Cotswolds with Pam Ayres which is rating (relatively) highly on SBS.

      1. But the number of Paramount + subscribers is a much smaller subset of viewers than the total available catchment of free to air viewers.

        It would certainly whittle the number down – but to 165,000?

        “Australians want to watch stories (movies/drama series) about themselves” is network/actor spin – which does not always hold up in real life.

  2. Not too bad Total TV numbers for Big Brother.

    I’m sure they are still disappointing numbers for 7, but I think 7 knew this season would not be a ratings hit. That’s why they kept it until the very end of the year, reduced the prize money (from $250,000 to $100,000) and reduced the number of days (25 from 50).
