I find there is always a lot of talk but little real action.

There was a protest sure. But that provided great publicity - probably gave Channel 7 and Sunrise more eye balls (ratings) than usual and even more of a platform and voice for Koch.

What is important for TV shows are viewers which = ratings which = advertising revenue.

A real and probably the most effective action would be simply to stop watching Sunrise. People abandoning a program, killing its ratings is the best protest and message to send a TV station.

That is probably the only feedback they will get that they will "understand' and act on.

Do people actually watch sunrise to start with.

(I do agree though, people need to follow outrage with action)

watching in the first place would be required. In fact, I hardly watch anything on channel 7, it all seems to play to sterotypical overly white middle Australia, without a hint of sarcasm. Ugh.

I don't even watch Sunrise, precisely because I never could stand David Koch.

I've never watched it.

No they won't make me stop watching Sunrise.  They won't make me start watching it either.

Do you think they would really care? With the boost in ratings this whole episode has caused thay must be laughing in their coffee cups. Mr Koch is renowned for these types of provocative comments which always prompt more people to watch Sunrise to catch the fallout. In a few days it will all be forgotten and there will be a new ground-breaking story in the headlines.

There are two times I watch:

1. when it's on in a waiting room (or the blood bank, which is next door to the studio); or

2. when I walking past and they are in Martin Place.

Agree there needs to be a boycott.
But first, we need to find someone who watches it in the first place... Tounge1.gif

Yeah. The whole thing has just reiterated to me that he's repulsive, and I still don't want to watch him.

Who watches channel 7 on here?  Can they please explain the appeal?

#13 PixieVee

I'll continue not to watch it if that helps haha.

I ditched Sunrise when I couldn't convince them to get rid of Grant Denyer who I find infinitely more offensive than David Koch.

No, because I don't even care what he thinks. I will do what I do regardless of his opinion.



#16 WibbleWobble

I never watch it ( or the other one on the other channel) I don't think I am their target market having a brain and all. ph34r.gif

It won't be difficult to stop because I never started.

#18 Niamh23

Posted 22 January 2013 - 04:14 PM

Another who doesn't watch it and never has, but I don't know what exactly a boycott would accomplish?

I stopped watching years ago because Kochie was such a tosser, nothing to do with his latest bout of stupidity.

So it appears David Koch knows his audience (which seems to exclude ladies and gentlemen of taste and intelligence) and said what he said because he knows it won't affect ratings.



#21 caitiri

I don't watch because of Koch I used to watch channel 9 but can't stand Karl  or Lisa? so now I watch nothing .

#22 lclb

Posted 22 January 2013 - 04:24 PM

Another non watcher here but I turned off because I found the females on the show to be patronising, though wholeheartedly agree that Kochie is a tosser.

I don't usually do T.V. In the mornings... I did once watch Sunrise when in a motel on holidays and it was rubbish.
Methinks anyone who watches it won't be game to admit it!

#24 jill1972

The only time I watched Sunrise was in the maternity ward at hospital when I had my babies LOL!  Talk about irony.  Maybe he ought to be thinking about his audience.

I can honestly say that until Monday I've never watched the show laughing2.gif
I tuned in to see what mr Kosh had to say and to see the nurse in original.gif
