HD Ratings: Below the Balboa for Creed

Three’s network movie premiere of Rocky sequel Creed was laid low by the competition on Thursday. It averaged an abysmal 1.2% of Three’s target audience, 25-54 year-olds, and only 1.0% of 18-49s. The latest in the Rocky Balboa saga wasn’t helped by Jono and Ben’s bantam-weight lead-ins: 2.9% of 25-54 and 1.9% of 18-49. But even […]

Jono and Ben Big at 7.30

Jono and Ben’s 7.30 Thursday debut on Three last week didn’t excite critics but network executives would have been heartened by the ratings. The Spinoff headlined its review: “Jono and Ben was a hot mess in a hot tub – and not in a good way.” And Stuff’s Jane Bowron said: “The show carried too many pre-recorded sequences and old segments […]
