Media blog Mumbrella last week reported that the total prime time audience for TV in Australia has sunk to below 5 million in 2009. While that still means that one in four Australians are watching the box at night — a reach other media don't yet match — it's a decline of 1% from last year, and a much bigger drop from the kind of viewing figures seen in the pre-Internet age.
