Big news out of the west saw an uptick in news ratings for the first Wednesday with a program over 1 million in three weeks. ABC did well with the top two entertainment shows of the night plus the highest rated show at 7.30.

Seven won total people while Nine won the demos.

Commercial offerings at 7.30 saw Parental Advice the best of a bad bunch, down from the previous two episodes while Big Brother VIP got no boost from the entry of the self-proclaimed GOAT. 10’s the Bachelorette was up 30k from last week but missed the top 20 in total people while managing to ranked third in 16-39.

Sunrise made the top 20 with an especially large audience in Perth while Nine’s Finding Cleo special managed 459,000 to rank second in its timeslot. Seven’s The Latest was 160k behind. Today also did well, 15k behind Sunrise.

10’s new drama Lie With Me failed to impress, as expected rating at the same level as Bull, while Love Island bumped to a late timeslot lost 50k week-on-week.

Compared with last Wednesday, most of the increases in 6pm news ratings were in Melbourne and Brisbane. Perth ratings also went up a bit.

Isn’t that technically the 9 News Special? They should have applied the same measurement used for News Breakfast on the News Channel when referring to Today.

Isn’t the full season already available on Paramount+? Or am I thinking of something else…

I’m not normally interested in ratings but as expected the news had the most eyeballs last night. People wanted to see what happened and the networks delivered.

TVW beating STW by more than double. Wow. Nine’s product is far better than in the past but Perth is still very much a Seven town.

Sunrise dominated Perth. Having 3 spots in their top 20 (normal; early and extended). Today nowhere to be seen.

Ten’s new Australian drama nowhere to be seen across the board.

Ten totally stuffed up the scheduling and promotion of Lie to Me and killed it.

I don’t think they care.

Commercial FTA drama doesn’t work in Australia anymore and with only 4 episodes in the series they probably couldn’t be bothered with it.

The networks are putting themselves in a difficult position for the future. Right now they are putting all their efforts in reality shows and very little in anything else. They’re not really looking at what might happen when the reality show bubble bursts. We’re already seeing some very poor ratings for some reality shows these past two years. Then what?

These type of shows don’t have any longevity either unlike scripted shows than can run as repeats or on streaming services for decades into the future. There has been a lot of focus on reality shows overseas but nowhere as much as in Australia, where all other types of programs take a back seat. Australian networks will have nothing to offer the content hungry streaming services.

The thing is though in regards to scripted content over the last 6 years since Netflix (and now the rest) have launched we’ve been moulded into the binge format for television dramas.

I don’t want to watch Lie to Me once a week. I’m going to wait until it’s finished and watch all 4 in one night.

Why would anyone want to return to the old days of once a week appointment viewing when these options are so freely available now?
