Jeepers, Triple M's general ratings have gradually dropped to the level of shitness. Even SEN had better ratings than that about 4 or 5 years ago.

What do those numbers mean? Im assuming higher number is better. But for example, what is 3.0? and what does 5.2 mean? Id love to know.

Also, how bad must SEN be going if MMM breakfast show is beating them? That is the worst radio I've heard.

I love them too. It is the only time I ever listen to SEN. Nothing better in the mornings. But 9am comes round, I chuck on 3AW. Looks like many do the same.
Ah sorry mate misread your post, look Sen will always hover around 2.5-4 IMO, can handle gerraldo for a little bit, then it’s off..
Don’t even mention though arvo morons

All good man. Gerard thinks he is God. Cant stand the campaigner. What do the numbers represent? What does 2.5 represt? Does it mean 2.5 percent of people listening to the radio have SEN on?

Yeah pretty much, higher the better.. think they still use diary method which is bit sketchy IMO, ratings still shockingly low..
Ross’ and Russ get around 20 for a comparison

as far as I know, it's the percentage of people listening during each slot, so not a percentage of the population, which some people think. I suppose that's only part of the story, because we dunno how many people listen; we only know the obvious, which is that breakfast and drive time have the most listeners

Yeah, if you think about it 3AW are just monsters. They look unbeatable

Apparently the Rush Hour does really well on the podcast numbers so they might not be too worried about the ratings there. I know I only listen to it that way. I find it way funnier than the Rub; not high brow humour but a good way to wind down after a long day at work and has more of a relaxed feel.

The rub is too try hard and contrived now, especially with Bill as basically the focal point. He is funny when not trying to be, not as a written line type comedian.
Exactly, rush hours hilarious and they've just got a smooth run to the show.
The rub used to be a group pile on but they've just got lazy and tried to make a rush hour 2.0 but it doesn't work with all the extra unfunny voices.

They need to bring back 4-6. Dont even know why they pulled the pin.

Think hutchy says the same, podcast numbers are ok apparently, they almost prefer these because you get an exact number almost

Exers, Gryffindor, Rich & Ess AFLW,
The Friday Rub is unlistenable thanks to Mark Howard and he’s constant jerking off of Dunstall. The whole show is about Dunstall. Wish Howie would just disappear altogether.

To quote the great man about Howie "he's a dag on a sheep's arse."

When they brought Dunstall back, they needed to have Brayshaw on with him. Chief could take the piss out of Brayshaw and 'JB' would take the piss in return. Chief could take the piss out of Howie and Howie would ask for Chief's autograph.

Chief is wasted on Friday nights can’t stand Howie.
JB, Bt, Chief, Bernie and Damo is a decent Saturday rub if they can make it happen.

the rub has gone down hill ever since damo went from journo to instigator. Needs to learn his role
