  1. I don’t understand why 9 is repeating Tipping Point today Friday in a ratings period.
    It will turn me off from watching and then damage their brand!?!

  2. Seven are having the year from hell, on all fronts, even the AFL is performing poorly in the old average metric (first time vs NRL since probably 2014 or something when they were last neck and neck!) New CEO has his work cut out for him.

    1. What is it that makes you say that Seven is having the year from hell? The Chase has lost its number one status but they’re still kicking serious goals. Sunrise is smashing the Today show, The Morning Show slaughtering Today Extra, Seven News still well ahead of Nine News, Australian Idol growing this year, The Front Bar, The 1% club both local and English editions, Farmer Wants a Wife doing good business. Married at First Sight and Tipping Point Australia is Nines only success. James Warburton did good things for Seven and it shouldn’t go unnoticed.

      1. My guess is Sully is referring to the unwelcome headlines….. Add to that NRL and AFL on FTA are as close as they’ve been in years (I posted on this last week) and nine news is closing the gap from around 200k typically to about half and even beating seven once last week – I guess the lead in does count for something; and Sunrise / Today the gap has closed. You’re right, seven have come up with some prime time successes but Sunrise, news and AFL dominance have been sevens spine for twenty years now and all of this is looking a little shaky….nines Olympics is giving them a spring in their step.

        1. That’s because it’s now total tv, whereas before only metro was reported which skewed against the nrl states which have greater decentralised populations. When regional and metro viewers were combined the ratings have historically always been pretty close between the two codes.

          1. Not really, the AFL number on Thursday night was under 300k and that’s about 1/3 (!) of the average Friday audience some 7 years ago. NRL hasn’t fallen sharply like that, it’s remained largely steady at least in that metric, although took a sharp fall after about 2014/2015.

  3. The fact the AFL match was all over in the first quarter (i.e. by 8pm) would result in a lot of viewers switching off. Many Melburnians then probably watched The Storm on Nine.
