celeb masterchef is prob down cause of the shocking show before it, nothing at 7.30 has any hope
I find myself disliking Hungry Beast more and more every episode. Last night’s episode would have to be the worst so far. It’s one thing to present news in a comic way, but it’s another thing to sandwich a serious news story (such as the pedophile story) between poor attempts at humour. And it’s yet another thing to poke fun at what was once a serious story (i.e. the robot story) in the way that they did.
@ Trev – if you think a Network is breaching rules then go to ACMA.
question for you. Did you recently propose any changes to the Code or are you only an on-line bleeter?
Pathetic result for Celebrity Masterchef, once again beaten by repeats of Border Security with 2.5 Men not far behind – how embarrassement.
It also looks like NCIS: LA is a flop in this country.
Good to see Spicks & Specks holding up decently. Shame John Safran is such a ratings bomb, love that show.
Celeb MC should start to take charge in its final weeks – Im expecting it too to be honest. It is MC after all! NCIS LA’s first week below the million – shame because it was a ripper last night.
Its beyond me how City Homicide’s numbers have jumped and Rush’s keep sinking. Come on Rush, lift!
It’s not me who needs to read the code of practice James, it’s the bloody networks.
Well done to Channel 7 for having six of the Top Ten shows last night. ACA below 1M yet again, and RPA Where are they now? is tanking.
Freaking Awesome episode of MasterChef last night, an absolute blinder. So entertaining and the food was beautiful – I had to restrain myself from licking the TV screen. I am super impressed with KirK Pengilly’s cooking prowess but my God, how good is Eamon Sullivan???? I am stunned at his cooking skill level for such a young man. That dessert tasting plate he produced in the mystery box challenge was astonishing. No wonder George was almost lost for words and praised him to the skies for it. He has already offered Eamon a job at one of his restaurants, post swimming career. This kid could find his way round a kitchen blindfold, he is the real deal.
low ratings night for everyone . expected celeb masterchef to get higher cause it was a bloody awesome ep and best yet! ncis held up well, 7pm project grew but is still sh*thouse.
I really hope ten play 9am with david and kim through summer like other yrs because when they did they held around 180,000 daily and beat 7 and 9’s slot
@ Trev – there is a limit of commercials and promos per hour, primetime and per day.
Take a read of the FreeTV Code of Practice.
Yeah, i can’t believe how inaccurate 7TWO’s schedule is. last week i recorded strikeforce and as it turned out i only recorded the 2nd half as the show began 15min early. i’ve kinda gotten used to shows starting late, but shows starting too early is so much worse. this is unacceptable as 7TWO will have less deadlines regarding advertising and also has no live programs so shows should start at the stated times.
I’d think Deal’s well and truly pwned. (in Brisbane at least)
I sympathize with you Jed but the only thing that’s going to change the annoying practice is to abolish self regulation and limit the number of commercials and promos per hour and allow no more than 3 one minute ads at a time. Will it ever happen? Don’t hold your breath the networks are all too greedy.
@Jed. The ACCC/ACMA or whatever authority should be given the power to enforce an “advertised time, be on time” law. It is a complete joke what the nets get away with.
If you start a show at 8.40 advertise the start time as 8.40, don’t lie and say 8.30 when it wont start for 10 more minutes.
If retailers for example advertise a product price and sell it for something higher, they get in trouble. The same should apply to false advertising by the commercial networks.
so where did they get the figure from then david?
does it mean they are misleading their buyers?
TEN Press Release 24/11/08: “A peak audience of 1.85 million watched Wes Carr fulfill his ambition to become the 2008 Australian Idol last night. An average 1.60 million viewers shared the final stage in Wes’s transformation to Australian Idol, as they watched The Winner Announced segment of the finale spectacular (21:06 – 21:44). Both the peak and the average audience were higher this year than in 2007.”

David, you’re the man with power, don’t suppose you can hassle the networks to start showing programs On Tiime? It’s even more frustrating now theres more channels to choose from.
Watched Celebrity Masterchef, which ran over time. Wanted to record City Homicide at 8.30 and watch Heroes on 7TWO at same time. City Homicide started at 8.40, so Heroes had already been on for ten minutes, and worse Seven had the gall to show an ad before City Homicide for Heroes over on 7TWO. I don’t get it. None of the shows are live, they’re pre-recorded, the length is already known, fit the ads with this time, and start on bloody time.
7PM Project, what a sad state, Ten should have never given Roving Enterprises the contract to produce that show.
If the show had a news director and some actual talent it might have worked.
