HD Ratings: First Sight Wins Night for Three

Three’s Married at First Sight Australia continued its powerhouse run on Monday, winning its slot in all the key demographics and helping lead-out 9-1-1 to win its hour as well.

According to the network, Married at First Sight Australia is the highest rating multi-night reality drama of 2018 amongst 25-54s, with an average year-to-date rating of 7.0% and a 23.3% audience share, while its ThreeNow streams have leapt by 120% versus last year.

Last week, it won its time slot each night with an average 25-54 weekly rating of 6.5% and a 22.7% share of audience.

Sunday’s episode was the week’s highest rating: 9.2% of 25-54 and a 28% audience share.

Last night’s episode averaged a 25-54 rating of 7.2%, 18-49 rating of 6.0%, 18-39 rating of 4.7% and a household shoppers rating of 9.8%.

TVNZ 2’s My Kitchen Rules Australia averaged respective ratings of 5.3%, 4.2%, 4.2% and 6.7%.

TVNZ 1’s Fair Go averaged 5.0% of 25-54 and lead-out Border Security, 4.6%.

The network’s new drama, The Brave, could muster only 2.4% opposite TVNZ 2’s Young Sheldon (4.6%) and Will & Grace (3.1%).

But the comedies were no match for 9-1-1, which averaged 4.4% for the hour.

Its popularity across all the core commercial demos meant lead-out Caught on Dash Cam out-rated the season premiere of TVNZ 2’s The Walking Dead in the 25-54 and 18-49 demos.

Three went on to win the night in the 25-54, 18-49 and HHS demos but was pipped by TVNZ 2 for the biggest 18-39 share (25.6% vs 25.2%).

Three’s win was all the more more impressive given Newshub Live and The Project trailed 1 News at Six and Seven Sharp by several rating points in all the core demos.

  1. I see Sky have changed their pricing but not sure what it means for me, if anything 🙂


  2. Thanks, Trevor. Btw, have you started testing Sky’s new streaming service yet? If so, what are your impressions?

  3. No, I haven’t heard anything about that as yet 🙂

  4. Could we possibly get some details on this? I’m unaware of a “new” streaming service from Sky.

  5. It’s a “cloud” version of MySky, similar to what Vodafone already offers over fibre. You won’t need a PVR — all your recordings will be kept in the cloud rather than on a hard drive and there will be support for over-the-top services like Netflix, HDR and 4K streaming.
