Interesting insight into Lisa Wilkinson’s time at Today and her relationship with Karl Stefanovic on tonights season return of Anh’s Brush With Fame.
Interesting that there was a clip played from her brief time on Sunrise but there were only publicity shots used from across her 10 years on Today. Channel 9 wouldn’t supply any vision?
On a side note, it was a great interview, capturing many things I love about Lisa.
I assume that is the regional news set in Melbourne that Bec is presenting from?
According to Nine:
Today received its second highest ratings of the year (metro average audience).
I don’t understand as there have been multiple times the ratings have been higher. Not sure what I am missing. Monday’s ratings were higher, and last week’s average across the week was higher.
Also worth noting that Today won again in Brisbane. Melbourne was a tie (Today was a couple of hundred ahead) between Sunrise and Today - so perhaps some of those bumper news numbers are starting to tune in for breakfast. However, ABC Breakfast beat both commercial shows in Melbourne after also winning in Monday.
So this isn’t correct:
Wow those are not the ratings I thought the show was getting. Slight win in Melbourne and winning Brisbane. How far behind in Sydney I wonder.
@TV.Cynic says they won by a couple of hundred, which is what they would be basing that claim on rather than the tie which it was rounded to for the official ratings report.
ABC Breakfast had the highest audience in Melbourne - combined number from ABC and 24. Nine tend to not acknowledge this way of accounting

4 weeks straight in Brisbane.
A little early to jump to any conclusions, but very good to see.
Agree with all of McKnight’s views.
And look at yesterday’s woeful results for WT
New survey published in The Daily Telegraph reveals 30% of Today’s own audience are “burnt out with” and think negatively towards Karl, as he is set to re-sign on with the show into 2021.
It’s behind a pay wall but I’m guessing Annette Sharp?
So 70% think he’s fine. You could do a survey about other hosts and get much worse results.
Then why are these 30% still watching?
Are these surveys that real?
It’s by another Telegraph writer, Briana Domjen.
Perhaps for the 30% who are negative towards Karl, dislike the commercial alternative even more (and don’t relalise that the ABC has a breakfast show).
