HD Ratings: Hamish & Andy Postcard Perfect for TVNZ 2

TVNZ 2 appears to have found the perfect stablemate for Have You Been Paying Attention?: Hamish & Andy’s Perfect Holiday.

Wednesday’s premiere of the duo’s latest travelogue — and the first not to air on Three — won its slot in three of the core commercial demographics.

It averaged 4.5% of 25-54 year-olds, 3.7% of 18-49s and 2.8% of 18-39s.

In the 18-49 and 18-39 demos, TVNZ 2 had a clean sweep from Shortland Street through to the start of All Rise, which quickly shed viewers in its new slot.

While the countdown to the final saw TVNZ 1’s MasterChef Australia dominate with 25-54s, leaving Three’s 7.30 rival The Block in third place except among 18-39s, where the two Aussie contests level-pegged.

H&A was up sharply on the previous week’s season final of Wellington Paranormal across the board.

Despite stronger competition from H&A, Three’s The Rookie also improved week-on-week, with 4.4% of 25-54s, 3.7% of 18-49s and 1.7% of 18-39s, while lead-out Hawaii Five-O made slight gains.

The night was keenly contested, with TVNZ 1 winning the biggest share of 25-54s and TVNZ 2 the other key demos, although it only just pipped Three for 18-49 honours.

TVNZ 2 also topped Thursday, with SS, Police Ten 7, Neighbours at War and Travel Guides holding sway, while the same-week repeat of Have You Been Paying Attention? won the 9.30 hour with 18-39s and household shoppers with kids.

Three’s umpteenth repeat of Braveheart scored highly with 18-49s (2.0%) and dominated post-9pm with 25-54s.

In other ratings news, TVNZ 1’s Tuesday night documentary The Abused, on the back of another top-rating instalment of Serengeti, won all the core demos except HHS/k, who opted for TVNZ 2’s Australian Survivor and Three’s 9-1-1-1.

And on Monday night, TVNZ 2 dominated with the season final of The Walking Dead capping a top-rating night spearheaded by Shortland Street.

TVNZ 2 was also a crowdpleaser on Sunday, when the network movie premiere of Kong: Skull Island crushed the competition. It averaged 3.9% of 25-54s, 3.3% of 18-49s and 2.6% of 18-39s; Three’s rival, Pitch Perfect 2, won only with HHS/k.

TVNZ 1’s newshour, Hyundai Country Calendar and Sunday continued to be unassailable from 6.00-8.30, helping the network to win the night in all the key demos except 18-39.
