  6. Under a million and only 5,000 more viewers that Ch 10’s Bingle. This series will need to be very short indeed to stay at 7.30pm on a thursday!!

    Talking of Lara Bingles 925k audience. What would Ch 10 do for an audience that high for any programme right now.

  12. With shows like Lara, Big Brother, and Beauty and the Geek it’s quite scary to think about what we’ll be watching in years to come! Come on Australia, we are much better than this.

  14. Ok yeah, but (I’m hoping) a lot of that audience has to be morbid curiosity.

    When the figures for Ep02 are revealed, we’ll be able to have a look with a slightly clearer picture of what the audience actually is.
