HD Ratings: Too Few Recall Trivial Legacy

Today’s announcement by TV3 that it has commissioned another run of The X Factor NZ for next year isn’t surprising given how well the original rated and the popularity of the Oz import.

The latter’s ratings on Sunday helped TV3 to win the night two weeks running in the four major demographics, despite TV One’s much hyped Nothing Trivial swansong and TV2’s network movie premiere of Total Recall.

X Factor averaged 7.1% – 12.3% of the key demos, and largely won its slot against TV One’s Sunday and Radar Across the Pacific, and TV2’s HD sitcoms.

At 8.30, Total Recall (6.0% – 8.8%) had the edge on TV3’s premiere of The Bourne Legacy (4.5% – 8.0%) but both seesawed among household shoppers with kids.

Nothing Trivial: The Finale, which fans petitioned for, averaged only 2.6% – 6.4%, and was ahead only in the 25-54 stakes against the second half of Bourne.

However, it was up on the previous week’s NZ production, Pirates of the Airwaves (2.4% – 4.0%).

Sunday’s peak-hour HD channel ratings and shares were:

  • A18-49: TV One, 6.2 rating/21.3 share; TV2, 5.8 rating/19.9 share; TV3, 6.4 rating/21.9 share
  • A18-39: TV One, 5.0 rating/18.0 share; TV2, 5.5 rating/19.8 share; TV3, 6.9 rating/24.9 share
  • A25-54: TV One, 7.6 rating/22.9 share; TV2, 6.3 rating/19.1 share; TV3, 7.6 rating/22.9 share
  • HHS/k: TV One, 8.8 rating/24.5 share; TV2, 8.7 rating/24.0 share; TV3, 10.2 rating/28.4 share.

On Saturday, TV2’s Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit (7.2% – 9.6%) dominated the HD ratings, with Hyundai Country Calendar averaging 5.5% – 8.6% against The Secret Lives of Dancers’ 1.3% – 2.2% and Vera 0.4% – 1.3% against Blue Bloods’ 1.4% – 3.4%.

On Friday, TV2’s The Voice Kids Australia (10.8% – 16.7%) was almost as popular as lead-in Shortland Street (12.3% – 18.2%) but lead-out Here Comes the Boom (5.0% – 7.5%) was largely beaten by TV3’s light-ent line-up.

  1. Another NZ on Air cock-up. High time funding stopped going to commercial ventures like this drivel. Bring back the NZ TV charter! 🙂

  2. I do hope X Factor NZ will have all new judges next year, I would love to see Natasha Bedingfield as one of them 🙂
