Just Shoot Me tanks on Four

doh-homer-simpsonMediaworks have a real problem now that they’re no longer screening The Simpsons at 7pm on Four.  Last night, the replacement, Just Shoot Me, failed to make the top 100 shows of the day, barely managing 20,000 viewers.

This evaporation of ratings means that the average audience is down more than two thirds on what it was last week, and 71% on the last 8 weeks.

The channel share is suffering after the loss of more than 40% of their Top 20 highest rating shows.

Mediaworks must be hoping that the fallout from Andrew Shaw’s racist comment in front of the delegation from Fox will pay off and help secure the output deal they’re after.

    Not sure Fox cares about Andrew Shaw’s antics on stage. They just want to get paid.

    “Mediaworks must be hoping that the fallout fromAndrew Shaw’s racist comment in front of the delegation from Fox will pay off and help secure the output deal they’re after.” Um… What? How much ‘fallout’ has there been beyond a rather transparently snotty post on Throng?
