That’s why I call defying gravity.

Definitely be the number 1 network this year.

James Warburton direction on seven and its programming strategy is now very questionable. Sevens tent pole shows that have kept it number 1 are now under fire.

Absolutely, and they’re just not making enough content, and arguably not enough good content.

They seem to have a very misguided idea of who their audience is and what they want to watch. Case in point, Stranded on Honeymoon Island.

Having a spine of stable programs (News, Sport, H&A, BHG etc) as they always refer to will only get you so far.


The only thing keeping Seven afloat is AFL. Their tent pole shows have failed to fire for years.


AFL and Perth.


Well, Nine did win a couple of nights in Perth this week (thanks to Married) and Nine News Perth was fairly close last night (thanks to AFL on 7mate at same time as news due to current aedt time zone).


Channel Seven’s The Latest has their new lead story!


From Crikey (via Mediaweek)

Nine executives were grilled in an all-staff meeting on Wednesday after staff were given the opportunity to submit anonymous questions. Media Briefs has seen some of the submissions which highlight a degree of staff unrest.

One submission complained that feedback provided in an ostensibly anonymous employee survey was “recited back to (them)”, making them “nervous” about completing another.

Another asked: “How can Nine expect to retain employees when they pay well under minimum wage?”
