BBL rated very well for 10, main channel shares in the high teens or sometimes early 20s, but they didn’t have a top rating 6pm news, so should do very good business for Seven. However, some viewers will go to Foxtel, we’ll have to wait and see how many…

Very interesting Christmas Eve, because for the first time Carols by Candlelight will finally face a major opponent in the BBL. I have been looking forward to this clash since Cricket Australia announced the fixture. Carols will still win in Melbourne but will face a stiff challenge in Sydney and other cities.

I expect Nine to win the night, but not necessarily because of tennis, but the selection of main channel movies (though old as the hills classic over on Seven might beat them so who knows).

I also think it’ll be barely a modest start for the Hopman Cup, which was the lowest rating of the tournaments last year, but again could be wrong.
