no prison escaping tonight + shame on Channel Nine

No Prison Break tonight. I guess this is a wise decision not to compete with Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony, showing on Nine Network. The Commonwealth Games without Ian Thorpe will be very enjoyable to watch. Everybody (else) has a chance to win the gold medal!

And what about Channel Nine? Channel Nine banned injured swimming star Grant Hackett from the Commonwealth Games pool deck and athletes' village. Why? Grant Hackett works for Channel Seven. According to Sunday's news report, Grant Hackett now has limited access to visit Australian athletes... Grant Hackett is the captain of Australia Team.

Shame on Channel Nine! I am pretty sure this restriction will do Channel Nine no good.

And congratulations to Channel Seven! Channel Seven is now the most watched TV channel in Australia.

And today is the Ides of March.

Still, our usual story line on Prison Break. Previously on Prison Break, Michael saved Dr Sara Tancredi, T-Bag's killed Rookie Guard and tossed him over the railing. The riots ended.

Seven's stars rising (, 13 March 2006):

CHANNEL 7 continues to dominate the ratings, holding onto top spot for the fourth consecutive week.


It has been a big turnaround for Seven, which was used to being in third place last year despite an influx of new shows such as 24, Desperate Housewives and Greys Anatomy.

Seven easily led until 7.30pm, with Home And Away having at least 100,000 viewers more than the second highest rating show, Ten's The Biggest Loser.

Following the 7.30pm time slot, Seven still managed to hold the most audience share with Las Vegas (1.23 million). Lost was the highest rater for Seven, with a 1.669 million audience.


Since the start of the ratings season, Nine's audience has fallen by about 5 per cent, while Seven's has risen by 4 per cent.

Even Nine's The Footy Show - which has enjoyed big ratings in the past - came in third for that time slot.

Overall audience figures show Seven had 33.8 per cent of the market, Nine 25 per cent, Ten 23.3 per cent, the ABC had 12.7 per cent and SBS 5.2 per cent.
