  1. I’m really enjoying NCIS: Sydney Last time I watched a crime show associated with water was CSI: Miami.
    I’m surprised it’s not rating better.
    I think it’s well scripted, contains humour and the usual crime solving expected in this genre.

  2. I get the impression that the scales are slowly tipping in favour of Tipping Point, even though it is at a fluctuating level. I think The Chase is great, though it has been around for a while and is getting stale. Could it be the casting of the chasers? Or could it be that it’s time for a spin-off, like Beat The Chasers Australia. I still prefer The Chase over Tipping Point as I think it’s a bit more intellectual, though I think it’s about finding the middle ground for ratings.

    1. Solace, I reckon it’s more than “slowly tipping”. It’s been quite consistently more than the chase for some months now. What I found interesting is that the news ratings haven’t changed anyway. The thinking used to be the 5-6pm slot was critical to news ratings but so far, seven has maintained a 100-200k margin almost every night. Good on nine for trying a new show (and they needed to). Seven I guess would be a tad anxious but the chase ratings are not super bad and their news still going strong in National overnight numbers. My guess is they are suffering in NSW and QLD but we don’t see those numbers anymore…..

  3. David, isn’t the reason why 1% dipped because 7 had a split line up? 1% got 490k & Dream home got 240k so 7’s 7:30 slot got 730k combined which is on par with what 1% normal gets when it’s shown everywhere.

    2nd in the slot ahead of MasterChef
