Network Ten (commonly known as Channel Ten or simply Ten) is an Australian commercial television network. Network Ten is one of five main free-to-air networks in Australia. Owned-and-operated stations can be found in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, while affiliates extend the network to cover most of the country.
Network Ten consistently rates third amongst all networks, but in 2012, Ten has performed woefully and for nearly all consecutive rating weeks, the ABC has beaten Ten. Channel Ten's poor ratings caused longstanding employee David Mott to resign. Previously, it was behind the Seven Network and Nine Network but ahead of ABC and SBS.
