    good to see home and away winning the 7pm timeslot followed by biggest loser, abc news and yes 2&a half men 4th in that timeslot I hope people keep putting that last and good to see agt win the top show on wed night with pt 1 of the grand final and winner announced nxt wk and nearly a 8per cent audience share win for 7 between 9, they have just lost all the good they used to have go loser.

  2. Peter says:

    Arnt RSPCA Animal Resuce and FMF returning with new episodes next week? Also new 10year younger in 10days. I Dont think we should lock ch10 in as a front runner on Tuesday nights. Im not saying they def wont win, but we cant call them clear winners yet.

  3. seanie says:

    @ Andrew B, Erik Thompson was on sunrise about 3 weeks ago and was quoted as saying Rafters will be back in around 10 - 11 weeks, and that it would run right through to the end of the year. So there is only another 8-9 weeks left till Rafters supposedly returns, which would make it late June/early July.

  4. Andrew B says:

    Rafters won’t be back till August or later - so the night will be 10’s until then.

  5. Gerry says:

    @ harry,

    I’m pretty sure TEN’s “unbeatable lineup” for Tuesday will be thrashed when Seven bring back Packed to the Rafters.

    Also, Channel Ten have no new good shows coming. Masterchef Australia? wow what a success that is going to be!

  6. Billy says:

    I can’t wait for “Master Chef Australia”

  7. Dino says:

    What’s Good For You seems to have dropped a lot, and RPA is getting much lower than it has gotten in the past. They’re both going to get hammered when TGYH returns.

  8. Billy says:

    It’s a shame “Cold Case” isn’t holding well anymore. “The Biggest Loser” thank god is havin good ratins, i couldnt live without that show.

  9. Andrew B says:

    Nine 3rd for 3rd night in a row. It truly is non-ratings for 9. Looks like 7 will win this week, 10 maybe 2nd.

  10. Tepee says:

    Nine third two nights in a row… that’s gotta hurt. Well done to TEN’s Tuesday but I think the excellent ratings for NCIS repeats is not the sending message we want the networks to hear i.e. “We’ll still watch if you show us repeats!” And is it true that Nine are sticking with this Tuesday lineup into ratings? Surely they can put on something a bit better?

  11. Harry says:

    Tuesdays are now TENs to shine. Well Done to them, the Tuesday lineup is unbeatable.

  12. ryan says:

    i rekon for just tuesdays ten should push news to 11.30 or even 11 and put a show after ncis. since ncis rates really well up until 10.30 ten should capitalise on that timeslot and put something other than the news to keep people watching, like simpsons, everybody loves raymond, friends.

  13. Brad says:

    Geez, how bad are those HK Ratings? 440k? Think its one show that will be moved to a very late timeslot if not dumped all together.

  14. Andrew B says:

    Can’t believe that 9 still have the same line up planned for next Tuesday night. They’d be better of simulcasting 10.

  15. Craig says:

    I still can’t get used to TEN winning and 9 coming in 3rd! What out for NCIS 5 nights a week soon LOL

  16. Alex says:

    ahh.. how satisfying to see TEN news do better than nine… i mean.. who is still watching nine news?? When i saw a 5 minute report with the zoo on how the daily temperature was higher than average, i simply vowed never to watch it again.. until the quality improves.. ;) but then again, we all have our preferred sources.. if you like that sort of reporting then hey, why not..

  17. Eyce says:

    Is there any figures for the Paintball on ONE?

    It’s been strangely entertaining…

  18. Benno says:

    Ouch for nine news. What is going wrong with it all? Did the axing of Sunday and Nightline damage their reputation for news….?

  19. ryan says:

    yeah jed but just say they did start at 5.30 till 6.30, if people are already watching ten at 6 and there is more news going on to 6.30 then i could see alot staying on nstead of going to seven or 9 instead of watching the simpsons, and also alot of people would choose 10 news over 7 and 9 anyway at 6

  20. Tepee says:

    Last night TEN News ran from 5:30 to 6:30 in Melbourne. Was this the case everywhere else? It would be a very good idea for this to be permanent, looking at last night’s ratings.

  21. Jed says:

    Sorry but can i make a comment about the comments. Can you change it back to the way it used to be. It’s stupid starting the new comments at the top. Now you have to start at the bottom to read the old comments up to new, then when you get to the top if you want to make a comment you have to go all the way back down again.

  22. Jed says:

    That’s actually not a bad idea ryan, however at the moment they’re not competing directly with 7 or 9. Put it 5.30 til 6.30 and they could risk a massive drop in ratings at 6.

    Why did 7 put repeats of HIMYM and Boston Legal last night. It’s not like they really care about ratings for them, so why not just put new eps on. Especially Boston Legal, it’s the final season, so let us see it.

  23. ryan says:

    ten should change their news timeslot to 5.30 till 6.30, that way they can have 30 mins of primetime. it would do better than simpsons.

  24. mark zanker says:

    thank you for the quick reply david.

  25. Alty says:

    was ten news nationally on at 5.30?
    Because the viewing figures of the footy definitely helped it beat Nine News.
    It is good to see!

  26. David Knox says:

    An HD set top box will get you ONE in Adelaide (tho you will only see it in HD if your TV is HD), but AFL on ONE is identical to what it is on TEN. You wouldn’t see extra or earlier games in AFL or rugby. There are some slight differences for AFL panel shows on HD airing at different times but not matches.

  27. seanie says:

    Customs is clearly not a stand alone hit.

  28. mark zanker says:

    nice to know scrubs is still doing alright. last nights episode was brilliant due to john c mcginley given more of a role in the episode.

    to david i live in adelaide and we get shown the port or crows games on our screen if i bought a settop box would i get to see the national free to air (non fox game as most crows, power games are on fox) afl game and see the rugby a lot earlier as it starts at midnight which is way too late. i usually fall asleep by the second half.

    thanks for your work by the way.

  29. tommyk says:

    just a few weeks back people were commenting that the early week gap between 7 and 9 news had gone from 400k to 500k only 2 weeks later and the gap is 600k!!!! 9 sure does have a lot riding on millionaire. i’d hate to think what would happen if millionaire, with probability, fails.

  30. David Knox says:

    Clearly there were lots of different trends for a public holiday.

  31. Jake says:

    The Morning Show beat Sunrise … LOL

  32. Andrew B says:

    These Underbelly’s are on for the 3rd time, so the figures are no surprise.

    Given that we all have remotes these days, I agree that lead ins are not the problem and actual content and quality is more important. I am sure, that if 9 news was fantastic and memorable, the ratings would reflect it regardless of what was on before it.

  33. Brodie says:

    So Extra outrates Deal by 65k, yet 7 News wins by 27k in Brisbane. Interesting. Clearly lead in isn’t the only problem with 9 News…

  34. nick says:

    ahahaha congratulations Channel ten, ten news beat nine news!! Who would have thought this day would come.

    Look how crap the Underbelly repeats did, thrashed by a 90s romantic comedy and the Montreal comedy festival. 7 news does phenomenally well on Mondays, take note channel nine, its not just the lead in that helps, the news and its appearance , authority and content are factors as well.

  35. David Knox says:

    One Week at a Time (ONE) was 59,000.

  36. DansDans says:

    What was the figure for “One Week At A Time”?

  37. Rutzie says:

    I think Rove should move to Thursday night at 8.30pm. The start time constantly changing every week on Sundays is really hurting the show in my opinion. Thursday nights at 8.30pm isn’t a very competitive slot and at least you’d know what time it’s on each week.

  38. Brodie says:

    Yep, I gathered as much Edu. It was more of a response to Susie, but I should have made that clearer.

  39. Edu says:

    @Brodie
    I’m implying Sydney.

  40. Brodie says:

    Um, if you look a little closer 9 News did not win nationally. The figures for 7 News in Adelaide havent been added, due to it being shown at half time of the footy.

  41. Edu says:

    Nine news beat seven news; I thought it was only anecdotal when people say that they tune out of nine news when peter is reading, maybe there’s really is a truth to it.

  42. Susie says:

    Congrat’s to Channel 9 news, topped the figures. Its a pity its non rating’s period.

  43. Tepee says:

    I guess I was in the minority lasr night - I watched Biggest Loser, the first hour of Dance, Saved and the latter part of Rove. Pity none of them rated particularly well!

  44. Dino says:

    Big ouch for Ten last night. A solid lineup beaten by s**t on 9 and 7.

    I don’t think I have ever seen Rove so low, atleast not since his move to Sunday. In fact I can’t really remember it dropping below 600k on Tuesday’s. Dare I say it, Rove has hit a series low???

  45. Harry says:

    Easter Sunday - bad ratings.. lol. Loved Dance last night - fantastic idea to bring back everyone.

  46. ryan says:

    very surprised how ten did last night! first dance was totally awesome and was soo good to see everyone back, total entertainment and then rove who was hilarious last night and a kool interview with hugh jackman. these shows should have kicked ass if people were looking for entertainment. just shows too that alo of people have gone on holiday

  47. David Knox says:

    Share and audience data for channels ABC, 7, 9 and 10 represent network (aggregate) figures: they include all viewing to the broadcasters’ primary channel as well as SD and HD channels, whether the content is the same (simulcast) or different.

  48. hosko says:

    Why isn’t One’s share reported if their shows feature in the list.

  49. David Knox says:

    US Masters Golf 149,000.

  50. Matt says:

    Any ratings for the US Masters?

  51. Daniel says:

    if One is now recorded in ratings, what will be the recording if the event is simulcast?

  52. Craig says:

    I cant believe Saved did so bad, views complain there is nothing new on over the holidays but still watch a re-run movie over something new!

  53. David Knox says:

    Numbers down across the board last night for the long weekend. On that front it seems to have made sense to have rested Sunday Night. I was surprised TEN didn’t allow Rove to go out at 8:30pm given Dance was just a special. I had some convos last night in which I feared numbers would be modest for Sunday and huge for Monday. We’ll see if that pans out.

    More disappointingly only 164,000 tuned in for the excellent Saved feature. Last Easter Sunday TEN ran Emerald Falls, which by comparison took 836,000.

  54. JohnTv says:

    I cannot believe that Seven did not run Sunday Night last night. Surely, given that its numbers are not stellar, it would have made an effort to put the show on and keep some loyalty with viewers.

    I know that Live Tv can be expensive and people are away for Easter but this does not paint a good picture as to how committed Seven are to this show. They could have even pre-taped the show on Saturday or Sunday afternoon as the “live” factor is pretty minimal anyway !

  55. Brodie says:

    Low rating night, along with a very messy un-networked schedule made for some awful figures last night.

    But Ten, with an entire new lineup, absolutely bombed out last night. I thought they’d be owning these non-ratings Sunday’s but they’re shows have performed below par. Rove did particularly poor.

    On Nine the unpteenth airing of Mr & Mrs Smith did quite well.
