Ratings – 30/05/12

The Block (1st – 1,330,000) bring it home again as Home and Away (9th – 888,000) is relegated to fourth place again. The Amazing Race Australia (10th – 886,000) launches to a timeslot win, but the late start will have kept some viewers away. Australia’s Got Talent (7th – 1,026,000), struggling from no clear Vidgen-esque contestant this season, continues to struggle to make an impact, though rating over one million helps – but it’s just not winning (and nowhere near the numbers of last season). Randling (22nd – 488,000)seems to have found it’s ratings level just sub 500,000 which is a real shame for this intelligent and funny show. Offspring (12th – 867,000) posts decent figures just as everything picks up in the plot, but it gets lost in the noise of the other shows around it. At breakfast, Sunrise (25th – 390,000) smashed The Today Show (32nd – 287,000) and place well ahead of ABC News Breakfast (85th – 46,000) and Ch10’s Breakfast (7-9am 103rd – 27,000; 6-7am 128th – 10,000; 6-9am average 19,000).

I like TV. Have done since I was plonked down in front of Sesame Street & Play School as a kid in the 70's when we only had two channels. Now we have over 20 free to air channels. Keep up, people. You can contact me here or tweet me at: @MolksTVTalk
