Maybe masterchef and mkr and such have altered the viewers' brain unconsciouslyI haven't checked the demos, but I'd hazard a guess it is older people watching Zumbo...
Ten really had a Barry huh!?Oh, dear. Poor old Ten.
Seven News was best for Seven with 1.00m followed by The Big Music Quiz (930,000)
The Block (1.07m)
Australian Survivor (560,000)
I think I heard it was already renewed?? (Or that could be a false memory!) Even though it's shit ratings, it still managed to be the best of the night for Ten, so that's something.Ten really had a Barry huh!?
I commented last night while watching that #SurvivorAU was not trending on Twitter, and that maybe that boded poorly for the ratings, and sure enough...
Ten will be devastated at that result though. I hope it picks up so it can be renewed next year.
Simple folk, who don't mind being talked to like kindergartners by Scott Cam and Shelley, enjoy the block. You can't make a decent production of Survivor and cater to them. That's how the previous two tries failed.As I said in Survivor Ep 7 thread, I think more "non-regular fans" viewers of survivor,
had a hard time with the three tribes. The block teams are constant, 10 people and so
are easy to keep following even if you've missed an episode or two.
While survivor is harder to get into, and with 24 people, 3 tribes.. its harder to follow.
For the next season should there be one, survivor has to start with 2 teams and 20 max,
with more focus on names, relationships and alliances
I don't know. There are a lot of different figures we don't get to see, and adjusted figures to allow for time-shift viewing, etc. The number of boxes per capita used to extrapolate the date seems puny - but is apparently higher than the same per centage-wise used in the United States. I would like to see Regionaltam data combined with Oztam's major capital cities, etc. It does sound as if they do have solid data and reasoning behind their collection process - even though they've never offered me a ratings box!Let's be honest, Ratings are not even a true indication of who is really watching it.
It's about time they come up with a better idea to get a true indication of what people are really watching.
