Tipping Point

And there’s just a 30 minute episode on the Gold Coast.
Going to be interesting to see how it is played out.

I know once or twice Nine have shown a 30 minute episode of the UK version (due to the tennis I think), and they have crashed into the episode halfway through, at the start of round 3.

Reckon that might be how a half hour episode will be formatted. Think this will occur during the Melbourne Cup carnival. It used to happen with The Chase when the Cup was on 7.

Gold Coast started at the Jackpot Round.

Yeah it was actually Queensland I was looking at (Sunshine Coast) via Foxtel Guide, as all other markets have missing m/c and in the case of metro there’s no FTA at all anymore.

They’d have a purposefully made edition with contestants dressed in formal clothing and AOK acknowledging Melbourne Cup day.

Can’t recall the OG Deal or No Deal though or whether it even aired on this day.

Plus several Melbourne Cup/horse racing related questions.

Deal or No Deal I’m pretty sure aired as normal on Cup Day. Don’t think (at least in its later years) there were any Melbourne Cup references though. It was just a regular episode. It was the same case as Million Dollar Minute in 2013 & 14.

They’ll get one counter and the Jackpot counter will be stuck in the slot!

Next Friday (12th) is a repeat - appears Nine are cutting back to 4 episodes a week as I can’t see any reason offhand why they’d drop a repeat there

Good numbers last week

The repeat episode on Friday was its best Friday result so far.

Was the Friday repeat a high winning episode? If so, could be a good tactic putting some high money results on Fridays.

Yesterday’s episode produced Tipping Point’s highest national average rating for the year so far. It also had the highest reach audience. In the 5-city metro, it was the shows 5th highest. As The Chase also produced one of its highest, I would put this partly down to the end of DST.

Nine reporting 46% increase in the 5.30pm timeslot yesterday compared to last year; heading towards best week of the year so far.

Well, of course, because Hot Seat was no longer hot. :slight_smile:

I thought it was good number to receive because it’s hard to compare the 5-city number for Tipping Point to Hot Seat when that aired at 4pm in Adelaide and 3pm in Perth.
