Replacing the Logies | Big ratings changes | The Block is back!


There’s the usual disagreements, arguments and possible even some agreeing as we tackle the TV topic of the week | TV Blackbox S06E09

Ratings is the most-talked about topic in the TV industry and with VOZ set to change the way figures are reported we get to the bottom of what it all means in a special report.

Channel 9’s The Block is back in the ratings race as the cheating scandal gives the show some real momentum, but Aaron is taking channel 10 to task over their programming decisions.

And while the public might think ACMA is a toothless tiger, is that how the organisation is viewed withing the industry?

In this episode:

  • 1.45 – Logies out, TV Blackbox award in
  • 6.43 – The worst TV programming decision of the year
  • 14.31 – Ratings Wrap Week 36
  • 20.07 – Piers Morgan cleared by UK watchdog
  • 25.39 – Is ACMA a toothless tiger?
  • 34.43 – Hatches & Dispatches
  • 36.45 – What is VOZ and how will it change the ratings system?
  • 51.30 – TV Bingebox
