    The cricket finally did something for Nine, winning them the night over Ten in 2nd followed by Seven in 3rd.
    Session 2 scored an impressive 1.5m, and even the day session did well with over 1.1m.

    Seven news the beat N9N last night even with big losses in Sydney and Melbourne, i'm not sure what time N9N was on, may have been on earlier due to the cricket finishing earlier then expected.

    Ten had another good Sunday night with SYTYCD securing 1.6m, while TBL weigh-in only got 1.15m.

    Seven didn't have a bad night but Greys didn't reach any great heights with it return, it still had good numbers and we'll see if it improves in the coming weeks.
    Samantha Who? dropped from last weeks figure, it doesn't look like it'll improve especially with the competition on Sunday nights, K&K also didn't fire, Seven better have something lined up or they could fall well behind on Sundays.

    7 wouldn't be happy with Kath and kim and Grey's figures. Maybe people forgot it was on - 9 should enjoy the cricket while they can

    Excellent night for Nine and TEN average night for Seven.

    Great to see Nine on top.

    And lol at people forgetting Grey's was on. Nice excuse for low ratings!

    My wife forgot Grey's was on. She wasn't happy when she turned it over from the cricket and saw the Grey's was on with only 5 minutes left.

    I think Greys just suffered from tough competition, the cricket was close, SYTYCD is the new hit show for Ten and also Greys wasn't getting huge numbers last season anyway.

    A really competitive night it turned out to be, Sevens consistency got them over the line (comfotably in the end).

    SYTYCD with another good number, this time up against Border Security and The Force, both doing alright, but not the 1.8-2.0m it was getting last year. The Royals also slipped as did Top Gear, 7:30pm MN is now pretty damn close.

    CSI did very well for Nine at 8:30 beating Desperate Housewives thanks largely to Brisbane with over 120k more viewers watching CSI compared to DH. Good News Week did alright starting at 9pm, there was so much on last night i think every show would've been down compared to if it was on another night.

    At 9:30pm, CSI: NY and Dirty Sexy Money were close, DSM with a fairly average figure for such a hyped up show, i think it'll stay in the MN slot though, Nine really have done well to limit Sevens usual big MN wins.

    7 would be unhappy with those numbers - Border usually is #1 every week.

    Memo 9: New CSI's rate, old ones don't.

    9 would not be happy with the Royal Family's numbers - looks like it will be a consistent 3rd place each Monday night.

    Seven had a solid night last night on a very low rating night overall with just 2 programs over 1.3m.

    Seven news and TT with their usual margins over N9N, at 7pm TBL seems to have slipped and will hover under the 1m mark while H&A is pretty consistent with over 1.2m viewers.

    At 7:30pm Monster House bombed big time, with all the promotions from Nine it really didn't do well with just 793k over the hour, it didn't really help Terminator which improved on its lead-in but just cleared 1m.

    ITT did well for Seven not a great figure at all but nearly 1.3m over the 2 hours (?) is solid.

    ITT won at 8:30pm as well while on Ten the WMC did well with 1.22m, not much hype sorrounding this show but it had a good number.

    I'm hoping, for the sake of the nation's respectability, that most of the MH numbers came from people tuning in as a once off for a certain train wreck. This thing has "Yasmin" written all over it.

    Good figure for Underbelly, would've cleared 2m if Melbourne had the show last night.

    Nine had a good win thanks largely to Underbelly, The Chopping block and Terminator late encore did well but it was Underbelly that won it easily for Nine.

    Seven had a reasonable night, Seven news, RSPCA AR, TT and H&A all performing strongly.

    As for Ten, Back to You did very well but RofE didn't fire much at all, while at 8:30pm House did quite well up against stiff competition in Undebelly.

    The 800,000 is the average number, I'm thinking it started with 1.2 million and ended with 400,000.

    Underbelly did well but Back to You did brilliantly! And that episode was available on a free DVD in one of the Sunday papers too. Good show - I liked it!:thumbsu:

    The show before should be re-titled 'Rules of Canned Laughter'.It sucked.

    I'd like to know how The Shawshank Redemption rated against Lewis in Melbourne.

    I thought that was the David Spade one there for a moment. I was wondering what drugs you would have to be on to like that - 'twas awful.

    It was always going to get a massive ratings boost from the banning. Would not be at all surprised if 9 counted on that happening in the first place. Loved the way they pretended to be upset about it.

    Good night for Nine with RPA doing well as usual, Kitchen Nightmares also did well at 9:30pm (?), over 1m is a decent figure for a Thursday.

    For Seven there wasn't much to talk about, their news and CA program really got them into 2nd spot over Ten, Amazing Race with a low figure, below 900k is worrying, Out of the Question and Family Guy will have to be switched, they're pretty bad figures, OOTQ dropping by the week, Lost should be moved to 8:30pm, followed by OOTQ-FG and American Dad.

    Ten had a good night thanks largely to LO:SVU and Medium which had a great figure @ 9:30 clearing the 1m mark, just below Kitchen Nightmares.

    Friends and Neighbours didn't do too well though, TBL was just under the 1m mark which is better then last week IIRC.

    Out Of the Question beat Life on Mars?
    Its this type of viewer response that makes things like Monster House seem like a good idea. It backs up the programmers theory that the more banal the program the better it will do.

    Life on Mars aired a year ago in the UK,so I guess some people may've downloaded it and not bothered with the ABC taking so long to air it.

    That's true. And the simple fact that its on the ABC means a lot of people won't have heard of it.
    Still, Out of the Question should not be getting viewers. Even Channel31 would have pulled the plug on it by now - not because of the numbers, but because of the pure level of crapnosity (which isn't a word, but I think is descriptive).

    Great cricket figure for Nine which helped the news and ACA, they would've easily won the night as noone is really interested in the Nab Cup and weren't interested in Sevens Movie either.

    Better Homes, H&A, TT and Seven News did have good nights though but the cricket won it for Nine.

    Ten had a pretty ordinary night, TBL, Kid Nation, Neighbours and Friends all below 700k, thats embarrassing, even for a FN. Pride and Prejudice did well for them though.

    Good night for both Seven and Nine, mainly due to their movies, Charlie did well for Nine beating Sevens Finding Nemo.....just.....thanks to Brisbane, FN won in Melb, Syd and Perth but Brisbane doesn't seem to like it?

    The Vicar did well for Seven also, over 1m for a repeat is quite good.

    Tens Nab Cup coverage didn't do well at all, average of just 520k or so from 6-11:30pm, noone is really interested in it.

    Week 1 Official Ratings season
    :
    Nine 28.7%
    Seven 27.2%
    Ten 22.5%
    ABC 16.4%
    SBS 5.3%

    Solid win to Nine, Underbelly did well as did the cricket a few times during the week, most shows were down on previous years, it'll be interesting to see the non-Olympic shares during this year.
