Q & A won its slot. Really like Patricia as host. I think they have finally found the right person to host this show now.
and reduced the intelligence of the “contestants”
10 is doing the same with NCIS Sydney, then they will complain that nobody’s watching it – but die hard fans will have already seen it on Paramount+
“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.
I guess if you screen it on your Subscription platform first you can’t expect big FTA numbers a year later. It’s their call what works best for the bottom line.
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.
The sad thing is, in this country we a
Brainwashed to watch news, MAFS or The block.
Big Brother bumped to multichannel any time now…
Didn’t think Blow Up could have had a bigger flop but BB might make take the cake!
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).
Launch episode did ok in Total TV, but keen to see episode 2 numbers tomorrow.
Yes, also keen to see the numbers for episode 2. Would also like to correct my post – last season was 62 days, not 50.
