SBS on a winner

Since SBS has had the cricket their overall ratings have increased dramatically. In any other week, they are lucky to reach 5% share but with the cricket they have reached 10.2%. As this is an average of seven days and there was only three days of cricket. So it must be getting at least 20% of the audience. Considering that none of the commerical networks wanted the Ashes this must be one of the dumbest moves they have made in recent years.

    I guess that the other networks expected another walkover by the aussies, with hardly a game being in doubt by the end of the first days play.

    The english had been talking up their team a fair bit, but they do it every series so I don't think anyone was prepared for them to actually have improved this time.
