So here we are, ready to discuss TV in 2012! :D
2012 promises to be another amazing year of TV as Nine tries to end Seven's dominance with a slew of new shows, such as the local version of The Voice (Delta will be one of the judges), the return of Big Brother after a 4 year absence, as well as the London Olympic Games.
I will try my best to bring you as many programming updates as I can, and I will also try and post more gossip in case people don't get to read all the blogs themselves ;) This is the place to discuss ratings, programming info and general TV news on shows that appear on free-to-air TV in Australia in the following year. So brace yourselves because it's gonna be a long and bumpy ride!
As always this post will include the list of when shows are beginning and their timeslots B)
New in 2012: new programs that begin screening on any free-to-air channels during the year will be marked in orange.

Nine won the second week of 2012 ratings year thanks to its cricket coverage. After Nine won Sunday, Seven took out the next four nights and the overall lead. But excellent ratings for the third cricket test between Australia and India from Perth, part of which aired in primetime in the eastern states, helped Nine securing Friday and Saturday and thus overall victory.
Nine easily won the demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54. In fact Ten tied for second place in 25-54 with Seven and beat the latter on the remaining two demos.
Nine won Sydney and Melbourne, tied with Seven in Brisbane whilst Adelaide and Perth remained loyal to Seven.

Programming update
Channel Ten
With three weeks to go before ratings start for 2012, Ten attempts a head start with Super Sunday on January 22, featuring the much anticipated 2012 revival of Young Talent Time as well as the new series premieres of New Girl and Homeland. New episodes of Modern Family also moves from Tuesday to Sunday nights on this date.
On Monday January 23, The Biggest Loser kicks off its 7th season this year with singles. TBL returns to 7pm, the stripped reailty timeslot that Ten once dominated, and that Nine revived last year. This move pushes The Project to 6pm, which in turn puts Ten's 5pm news back to the traditional one hour format.
Repeats of NCIS: LA and NCIS feature on Monday and Tuesday nights, new Glades continues late Monday nights, and the season three premiere of The Good Wife airs on Wednesday night at 8.30pm. Thursday night (Australia Day) sees the premiere of new series A Gifted Man at 8pm with the return of new Law & Order: SVU from 9pm.
New Glee lands on yet another night, in yet another timesot - this time at the rather strange time of 7pm Friday from January 27.

To combat against Ten's early assault on ratings, Nine is bringing back new episodes of The Big Bang Theory from Monday January 23 at 7.30pm, sandwiched between two repeat episodes (7pm and 8pm). Nine has also scheduled extra repeats of TBBT at 7.30pm from Tuesday to Thursday, up against The Biggest Loser. Nine has also brought forward the premiere of its own celebrity weight loss competition program, Excess Baggage, to Monday January 30 at 7pm.

The early finish to test cricket (this time Australia beat India by an innings inside three days) hurt Nine once again, as it was edged out by Seven in combined shares.
The season return of Grand Designs did very well for the ABC, however there was a huge drop-off to comedy spoof Uptown Downstairs Abbey (performed last year as part of Red Nose Day UK charity event) and then the premiere of the movie Balibo.
Once Upon a Time in Cabramatta lost 100,000 viewers from last week's debut but still rated well for SBS.
Merlin and Terra Nova finished their seasons on a high (Terra Nova is not expected to be renewed in the US however due to high production cost, while the fifth season of Merlin is currently being filmed) but It's a Knockout was not in the night's top 20 programs.

Seven's coverage of the Australian Open tennis got off to a great start thanks to its revised format, which included all day live telecast in all states as well as live coverage on 7TWO when the main channel goes to the news and Today Tonight. Yesterday's figures were already well above last year's:

2011: AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2011 - NIGHT 1 Seven 489,000 138,000 172,000 81,000 53,000 45,000
2012: AUSTRALIAN OPEN - DAY 1 NIGHT SESSION Seven 757,000 216,000 233,000 165,000 69,000 74,000

2011: AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2011 - DAY 1 Seven 328,000 90,000 97,000 69,000 37,000 36,000
2012: AUSTRALIAN OPEN - DAY 1 Seven 492,000 108,000 191,000 97,000 44,000 51,000

One drawback of the live coverage is that it finishes in WA at 9.30pm local time due to the three-hour time difference, followed by a late movie. This allowed Nine to claw some late night shares with its regular line-up. The result was a narrow win to Seven in both primary channels and total people.
One got a 4.9% share thanks to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Allstar Supershow. It was the third-highest rating multichannel of the night, just below 7TWO and GO!.

Lleyton Hewitt helped Seven to a big win last night, his tough four-set victory over German qualifier Cedrik-Marcel Stebe pulling nearly 1 million viewers, even higher than the ratings for his nailbiting win over David Nalbandian 12 months ago (which finished after 1am). However, the ratings for the day session slipped from Monday mainly due to Samantha Stosur's capitulation in the late afternoon. This in turn helped Nine News beating Seven News.
Here are how the figures compared with last year:
2011: AUSTRALIAN OPEN - DAY 2 Seven 344,000 88,000 115,000 67,000 40,000 34,000
2012: AUSTRALIAN OPEN - DAY 2 Seven 448,000 107,000 162,000 77,000 53,000 50,000

2011: AUSTRALIAN OPEN - DAY 2 NIGHT SESSION - LATE Seven 692,000 209,000 324,000 0 97,000 63,000
2012: AUSTRALIAN OPEN - DAY 2 NIGHT SESSION - LATE Seven 739,000 183,000 257,000 121,000 91,000 87,000

The tennis continued to attract good ratings last night, helping Seven to another big win. In fact, more people watched Bernard Tomic's match against American Sam Querrey last night than Lleyton Hewitt's tough contest on Tuesday. There was a huge drop of nearly 500,000 viewers as Casey Dellacqua was bundled out by Victoria Azarenka.

Here are the comparison of yesterday's tennis ratings with the figures from 12 months ago (remember it was against the first of Oprah Winfrey specials from Australia this time last year):
SEVEN'S TENNIS: 2011 AUST OPEN - DAY 3 NIGHT SESSION Seven 759,000 207,000 300,000 119,000 80,000 53,000

For the third night in a row, Seven won by a double-digit margin thanks to the tennis. More than one million viewers tuned in to see error-ridden Jelena Dokic losing to Marion Bartoli in straight sets, then Lleyton Hewitt slugging it out against arch-rival Andy Roddick before the latter retired hurt at the end of the third set. The peak audience was very impressive: 1.658 million.

The Bernard Tomic bandwagon rolled on, leading Seven to a monstrous victory, as the network doubled its nearest rival's shares in combined channels. Tomic's tough five-set win over Ukraine's Alexandr Dogopolov was the highest figure yet for the night session of the Australian Open this year (it peaked at 1.928 million, translating to a huge 68.4% audience share). Another million-plus audience is expected when the 19-year-old Australian comes up against Roger Federer on Sunday, which will put paid to Ten's hope that its own Super Sunday line-up will have a good start.
Here are the comparison in ratings figures against last year:
SEVEN'S TENNIS: 2011 AUSTRALIAN OPEN - DAY 5 327,000 92,000 112,000 50,000 41,000 32,000

Last night Ten pulled a paltry 9.4% share for the primary channel. It's a Knockout finished outside the night's top 20.

Lleyton Hewitt's four-set win over Canadian Milos Raonic at the Australian Open tennis helped Seven to another huge primetime win. Even though the average audience was lower than Friday, Seven posted a higher audience share.

Seven's coverage of the Australian Open tennis dominated the week's ratings, with six entries in the top 12 programs. With Lleyton Hewitt and Bernard Tomic leading the charge, Seven achieved audience shares of more than 40% in combined channels on both Friday and Saturday nights. Naturally Seven won three key demos 16-39, 18-49, 25-54, all seven nights and all 5 metro cities.
ABC beat Ten on Saturday.

For the fifth night, the night session of the Australian Open tennis guided Seven to a massive ratings victory. Last night however Seven's share was not as big as Friday or Saturday due to Ten's new Super Sunday line-up. But more on Ten later.
Bernard Tomic's match against Roger Federer was the highest-rating match so far of Seven's AO telecast. It averaged 1.604 million on preliminary data, but based on correct times, the match (which went for nearly 2 hours, finishing just before 9pm AEDT) averaged 1.954 million, peaking at 2.329 million. The second match between Caroline Wozniacki and Jelena Jankovic suffered a big drop but pulled good late night shares for Seven in eastern states.
Here's how last night's ratings compare with last year (based on scheduled times)
SEVEN'S TENNIS: 2011 AUSTRALIAN OPEN - DAY 7 393,000 112,000 143,000 69,000 38,000 31,000

SEVEN’S TENNIS: 2011 AUST OPEN - DAY 7 NIGHT SESSION - LATE 360,000 90,000 158,000 48,000 38,000 26,000

Against the tennis, Ten launched its Super Sunday line-up, consisting of an additional episode of The Project, the return of Young Talent Time after a 24-year absence, new episodes of Modern Family, and the premiere of US comedy New Girl (starring Zooey Deschanel) and US thriller series Homeland.
Based on the Israeli series Hatufim (English translation: Kidnapped) created by Gideon Raff, Homeland stars Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison, a Central Intelligence Agency officer who has come to believe that an American Marine, Nicholas Brody (played by Damian Lewis) who was held captive by Al-Qaeda as a prisoner of war, was turned by the enemy and now threatens the United States. When the drama debuted on US cable network Showtime in October last year, it became the network's highest-rated drama premiere in eight years. It has received critical acclaim and won the 2011 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series - Drama while Claire Danes won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series - Drama.
YTT posted respectable figure of 1.05 million viewers even though it had the low lead-in from The Project and was up against the early stages of the Tomic-Federer clash in the eastern states. New Girl and Homeland did even better, attracting more than 1.2 million viewers each, while Modern Family got 1.1 million. New Girl, Homeland and Modern Family were all in the top four of 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54 demographics, with New Girl and Homeland first and second respectively in the demos. Modern Family, New Girl and Homeland did particularly in Perth, as people looked for something else to watch after Tomic's clash against Federer finished just before the 6pm news.
The new line-up helped Ten to post a solid primary channel share of 19.4%, but at a price: both One and Eleven posted a low 1.8% audience share. Nevertheless, Ten is quite pleased with the result and has decided to repeat the four programs (YTT, Modern Family, New Girl and Homeland) this Tuesday night.
Nine, ABC and SBS were all hit hard by the tennis on Seven and Ten's new line-up. Among the casualties were Grand Designs on ABC1 which lost 45% of the audience from last week, and Once Upon a Time in Cabramatta on SBS, which shed more than 200,000 viewers from last week.

Some joy for Nine with the season return of The Big Bang Theory topping the night's most-watched programs, but Seven still won the night by a big margin thanks to the tennis.
The Big Bang Theory's new episode, which was brought forward by two weeks to compete against the tennis and the premiere of The Biggest Loser on Ten (more on TBL below), posted an impressive figure of 1.641 million viewers and beat its rivals easily. It boosted the figures for the 8pm repeat episode, making the latter the third most-watched program of the night. The 7pm repeat episode was No.7. Even though its line-up collapsed after 8.30pm, Nine still managed to grab a primary channel share of 20.8%.
Seven's coverage of the Australian Open continued to deliver for the network. According to OzTAM, the night session averaged more than 1.3 million viewers until early this morning (daily ratings are counted from 2am to 2am the next day local time) and was the second and fourth-most popular programs. According to Seven's press release, the women's singles match between Maria Sharapova and Sabine Lisicki averaged 1,211,000 viewers and peaked at 1,987,000. The big one, Lleyton Hewitt's encounter with defending champion and world No.1 Novak Djokovic, which finished at 1.05am AEDT today, peaked at 2,015,000 viewers and averaged 1,180,000.
Here are how the tennis ratings compare with last year:
SEVEN'S TENNIS: 2011 AUSTRALIAN OPEN - DAY 8 329,000 85,000 120,000 57,000 35,000 32,000

Ten's launch of the seventh series of The Biggest Loser, which this time focuses on single overweight people, only managed 11th place with 897,000 viewers, well down from its premiere of over 1.4 million last year (but it was shown on a Sunday). The Project, in its new timeslot of 6pm weeknights, average just under 500,000 viewers.
ABC posted its lowest primary channel share for the year so far: 7.8%.

Seven won for the seventh night in a row as its coverage of the Australian Open continued, but Nine and Ten started to pick up more viewers who were interested in the tennis.
Ten News at Five posted its highest audience in recent weeks while The Good Wife did OK on its season premiere.
The ABC's Australia Day coverage flopped as both the Australian of the Year Awards and the evening Australia Celebrates concert fell outside the top 20.

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer continued their modern tennis rivalry with another classic match at the Australian Open last night. The highly anticipated match averaged a huge 1.7 million viewers for the first session (it peaked at 2.17 million), helping Seven to a staggering 44.4% share -the biggest for the network this year and bigger than Nine (19.5%) and Ten (18.7%) combined. The tennis coverage did very well on 7TWO as well, peaking at 460,000, mainly due to the live telecast of part of the Nadal-Federer clash in Perth.
Here's how the tennis figures compare with last year:
SEVEN'S TENNIS: 2011 AUST OPEN - DAY 11 436,000 140,000 142,000 80,000 34,000 40,000

SEVEN'S TENNIS: 2011 AUST OPEN - DAY 11 NIGHT SESSION - LATE 432,000 136,000 175,000 45,000 45,000 32,000

The other networks were naturally hit hard by the tennis, almost there was some joy at Nine with the cricket rating very well during the day as the Aussies dominated on the field against India in the Adelaide test, helping Nine News beating Seven News nationally. Not much good news for Ten with TBL sliding towards the 600,000 mark, and new US drama A Gifted Man had an average debut.
