Wake Up – what did you think of the show? And how do you think it will rate?

Most days at Mumbrella’s morning news meeting, we play The Ratings Game.

We’ve been playing it for about four years now.

The rules are simple. We pick a show that aired the day before and everyone shares their best guess for how it did.

When the overnight metro ratings come in from OzTAM at 8.36, the closest person is the winner. The furthest out has to make a round of tea.

Today, I’d like to invite you to play too.

As you’ll no doubt be aware, Ten’s new breakfast show Wake Up went to air for the first time today.

It ran from 6.30 to 8.30

How do you think it did?

And, if you saw it, what did you think of the show?

To join in the ratings game for one day only (with the only prize, glory) simply share your guess in the comment thread. By all means use a pseudonym.

A couple of hints… Ten’s last attempt, Breakfast, averaged 49,000 on its first day. Ten’s rivals are touting a number of 100,000 as the minimum it needs. Seven’s Sunrise and Nine’s Today tend to deliver 3-400,000.

So what’s your best guess?

I’ll get the ball rolling with a punt at 75,000.

What say you?

We’ll find out the winner this time tomorrow.
