Ratings fall as more Australians switch off TV talking heads
More and more switch off.
Breakfast TV ratings on Australia’s leading networks are plummeting in 2022.
Both Seven’s Sunrise and Nine’s Today, long considered ‘the jewels’ in the respective networks’ crowns, have shed up to 35 per cent of their audience over the course of a decade, according to reports.
In 2021, Sunrise’s viewership was down 28 per cent from a decade earlier.
For Nine, the Today show has shed 35 per cent in the ratings over the same period.
It’s not just morning propaganda that is taking a hit, but also the night time talking heads.
According to reports, the ABC is in ‘panic mode’ after Q+A hit a new low in the TV ratings last week.
The ‘prestigious’ current affairs talk show, hosted by Stan Grant, scored a “pitiful” audience recently of just 165,000 viewers in the five major cities.
The public broadcaster is now asking members of its online market research group YourSpace for feedback on the show, as the hope to ‘turn things around’ for the foreseeable future.
The panel show was once a ratings winner for the ABC, attracting major political leaders of all persuasions and sparking debate over the content seen on the show.
Now, nobody could care less about the one-sided talking points.
Earlier this year, we also saw the same thing with night time TV’s ‘The Project’.
The Channel 10 current affairs program, hosted on Sunday by Hamish Macdonald, Lisa Wilkinson and Tommy Little, scored a dismal 185,000 in the 6.30pm time slot in the five-city metro market in March.
Could it be that people, after the last two years, are catching on to the deceptions?
Regardless, the propaganda machines will continue to spend billions of dollars each year to maintain the illusion of dominance.
THE ILLUSION OF DOMINANCE
All of these networks claim ‘migration to digital platforms’ is to blame for the declining free-to-air numbers, and while the broadcasting landscape has changed, here are the facts.
If people want to watch it, they will.
This is why non-political or news related content, such as building and cooking shows, are still massive revenue-generators for the companies. Advertisers still pay big $ for television slots.
Seven’s coverage of the nail-biting AFL elimination between Richmond and the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba scored an impressive 786,000 metro viewers.
Yes, I can watch the footy on my phone, but do I want that for the best viewing experience?
The same goes for all media.
People actually move to larger screens to get the best a program has offer, join in with families, etc.
Provide something that is perceived as good on TV, and people will tune in — on TV.
This old excuse of ‘migration’ to digital platforms is all a deflective shield.
The migration numbers don’t translate to interaction or revenue for online platforms, either.
Where are these people?
View counts, given they are multi-million dollar empires, just don’t make sense:
When you focus in on the news element, people are increasingly becoming not interesting.
That’s the reality of things.
But here’s the catch.
News services will continue to spend billions of dollars every year to ensure they remain on every TV screen as an illusionary tactic to show they are still the ‘top dogs’, the big deal in town.
Even if they lose this money each year.
Nine is part-owned by Goldman Sachs, for example.
There is an endless check book available to keep the illusion going.
Small political podcasts on YouTube get more numbers than Q&A or The Project can pull.
TV talking heads have become screens echoing to nobody.
Yet, they will never give in. To do so would mean they have truly lost their power; the mystique that keeps people captivated. They can’t have that, even if people aren’t watching the news pieces.
Because even those that aren’t watching still see the news on TV in a food court, in a shop window, etc.
It still presents itself as a distant omnipresent force, maintaining the false reality we live in.
If that was to disappear, the house of cards would have a hard time not collapsing.
Thus, the mass machine conglomerate will continue to present the illusion of dominance.
For as long as it takes.

Not surprised at all. People are just sick of the dribble and lies. They will not let anyone speak on the shows that do not fit their mantra. I have been weaning myself off many shows I used to watch, now I basically only watch doco’s like Shadow Government on Vice.
I’d like to think it’s more a case of people starting to wake up than losing interest but the fact that lame stream media is losing it’s appeal is a positive sign that people are becoming less interested in the media’s manipulative, deceptive bullshit.
‘T.V ratings plummet!’ = OH DEAR! With the Collective Morning Show I.Q.s NOT large enough to even fill a Gerbil’s Jock Strap, & the ‘Selected Items’ of ‘News’  , no longer even able to keep the attention of Gold Fish , even those with More than 3 seconds Memory, the Previous & Current DILLema of Commercial MS Media, & soon to be followed by Social Media, IS 110% SELF INFLICTED!! – Even allowed for GST – Gross Stupidity Theatrics.
 The Term ‘News’, is a loose reference to Completely Manufactured Slick BULLSHIT, Edited /Censored/Mis-Dis – PropaGAGdies to Professionally cover NOTHING of any great Importance, Choreographed to impress the Kleenex crew, or permanently push Drones into the Zombie Fear ToolBox, whilst the Ship of OZ Fools Occupying ‘Control’ of our Systems, Deliberately, in League with the NOT ‘Opposition’ Politic, ‘Search’ for a Wrecking reef to put paid to OUR Collective Multi Spectrum Vessel!
GOD SAVE THE KING! – HOORAH! = Somewhere in a Gerbil’s left nut bag, several sperm converse;
Sp 1; “So who’s this proper Charlie anyway, & who ‘Elected Him’?
Sp 2; ” Apparently He is a King!”
Sp 3; “What, ‘Coz he’s got no shit over him? That only makes sense if your searching for a Grail! How old is he?”
Sp 1: ” I heard an ABC Morning show host, or was that a parasite, same same. Anyhow, a host in Dad’s Jock Strap, say he’s 73 Years old.”
Sp 2 ; “Bloody Nora! If that was a Gerbil, that’s humans 1 Month = 2 of our Years, times 12, times 73. That’s 1752 Gerbil Years before You could become a Ruling Gerbil! Lucky We’re Safe in Here! You SURE this Charles human hasn’t been Carbon 14 Dated?”
“Sorry Chaps, due to Budget Cuts @ ABC , on Poor Show Ratings, We’ve – HAD TO CUT THE GERBIL’S BALLS OFF!”
Good News; With the possible ‘Axing’ of Lacklustre T.V. Programming, the Heads of Media Corporations have Round tabled the Current ‘Issues’, & collectively proposed a far more Entertaining & Educational Stratagem, by Cutting of ALL the Executives heads & placing them on a Pike, in front of their collective HQs in celebration of Charles Succession to the Throne room! HOORAH!
Sorry! That would in fact be, cutting out the Previous Abuses to Folks still retaining Intelligence, & will now be showing a Static ‘Test Pattern’ for Peak viewing periods!
Notes; A Message from M.S. Media at the behest of The Labor/Liberal/Gringe Ship wrecking Crew;
“CON JOB 19 Is NOT over. So practice personal Hygiene, NO Hugging, NO Hand shaking (Unless it’s Uncontrollable as an Involuntary result of a CoV JABEROO DAMAGE. OR, You ARE President J. Biden from UNaware – D.C.), NO Kissing, NO showing ANY traits of being Human!”
Please note, in view of this; NO gerbils were harmed or Actually abused, Physically or Mentally- (Incorporating Effective organic Anti Media Infections Via in this Dialogue, & and Virtual Stunt doubles, Together – Apart, were in fact used for Gerbil Sperms 1,2 & 3, practicing Pro rata Social distancing, & Not withstanding, the Vast spare space occupied by collective MS Intellect/Moral (LOL) values inside Shared Gerbil’s personal ‘Smalls’! Furthermore, ‘Nature’ has even provided, before Budget cuts were enforced by ‘Snipping’, a Proper DISGUST at the ‘Operations’ of Media, long before Now!
DISGUST – Deploying Industrial Supported Global Unilateral Synthetic Texts.
History Observers; ” It is the Press above ALL, which wages a positively fanatical & Slanderous struggle, tearing down Everything which can be regarded as a support of National Independence, Cultural elevation , & the economic Independence of a Nation!” – Mssr Adolph Hitler. – What’s changed!
Oh look! I’ve just taken a quick snippet from this News rag! Apparently, ‘WE’ are to be Lashed to the English Rack, until the End of Days! Typical Local something from CAN’TBERRA; Yet to be finalised;
Queen Elizabeth Holiday for Mourning – STOP the Planet, including Medical ‘Necessities’! THE Wrecking Crew Cabal, NOT happy with Destruction of Independent Small Business via CON JOB 19, & THE Dropping of THE Economy Further DOWN THE HOLE, THE ‘Mourning Holiday’, has Restricted Open/Closing Times, whilst Lizzies birthday (SHE is apparently 192 Yrs old = 2 Birthdays per year, 1] 21 April 2] 2nd Saturday in June), has Extended Trading hours? & with Charles the Trd making Noises about visiting The ‘Colonies’, will ‘WE’, be ‘Footing the Bill’ for said visit, so that ‘Charles’, doesn’t have to Bankrupt himself with his $s or English Pound 600 MILLION Personal worth, give or take Mum’s $38 BILLION in assets. A ‘Struggle’ for Sure! I’ll consult the Mornings Press – Sorry, They’re making Muffled sounds from a Gerbil’s Nether regions. Look, that one bears an UNcanny resemblance to Richard Gere!

Tell-lie-vision “news” services may have been able to maintain the pretence that their daily fare was reasonably accurate if they all hadn’t taken the lies, propaganda and fear porn to a whole new level in order to perpetrate the coronahoax, in lockstep with pHARMa-corrupted govts the world over.They morphed from the “mainstream media” (MSM) into the “fake news media” (FNM) and finally into the “Judas goat media” (JGM). Hang your heads in shame. What amazes me most is that ANYONE still watches/believes them after this.

P.M. ” OH SHIT!”
Wellness – You Didn’t hear this in the Mourning Show!
To get back in the game all they have to do is turn the comments back on and take note.
Don’t tell me the mirror magic is wearing of, that cult of personality worship of the lesser gods of the mesrmerized;
are falling from favour , of the commercial rich , infommercial environs , of the forever smiles ; where a reality of
the cash cow is but a phone call away, ancient rituals these:
Remember back to the arcane times , of the black and white , by today’s standards that would be politically
incorrect, ah yes, get your Camels, yes when doctors said smoking , was somehow representative of good health:
The reality is this foray of mind control costs a motza, yet it would seem that the well laid plans of financial
chaos, and economic stagnation , that even the bright stars of the everyday consumption , are now facing
the same dilemma of justifying their existence , for the need to do it another way:
We tire of this , saturation of the opinions and the consecration of these of the sunshine race , claiming the
high ground of morale conscience , bearers of the social indignation banner , claiming it on our behalf ;
as the engineering of the social morass , of the iconoclast, safe in isolation, on a platform where any
critic , or valid questioning , leads to being ostracised , tagged, bagged and put in the corner:
Well , it would seem that some have found the off switch:
The Death of the Queen, has shown us quite clearly , the idol worship, the concept of the inane of so called newsworthy moments ; just total mind numbing gruel :
You could say, that the desperation for the maintenance of the hypnosis of “News” is the imperative ,
here, as the sullied and portnoy’s complaint , of the moral bounds of anything is called politics, on the
World scale , is gathering momentum of it being very much on the nose, and the narratives of the
Mis, Dis, Information, and the validity of the so called leaders is exposed, as what we see now, the wriggle,
and pout , of walking back the past sins, the mass and collective criminal acts , as if it was all just a big
mistake, aka : Ardern; “its about people, making choices”
Yes; yet the “Talking Heads” as always : say ………..Nothing:!!!
“Mirror, Mirror on the Wall,
Are you a Real Mirror, or Just THE ‘Daily Mirror’ Saying as usual – FCK All?”
AMEN! & ONCE MORE – HOORAH!
Common thoughts Young John! Though, I do wonder IF current School Levers (Yr 12 No less) of Ed. Dept.Gov.Org @ Pillock.Program.
