Three Tweaks Late Night Line-Up

  Three is swapping time slots for two of its persistently low-rating primetime dramas. As of next week, Designated Survivor and Tin Star will air after Newshub Late. Designated Survivor will switch from 9.55 Mondays to 10.25, and Tin Star from 10.00 Tuesdays to 10.30. Their peak-hour programming was always peculiar, given Designated Survivor is […]

HD Ratings: Changing Rooms Changing Slots?

Changing Rooms Australia could soon be changing slots if its overnight ratings don’t improve. Last Sunday’s premiere tanked, averaging only 1.3% of TVNZ 2’s target audience, 18-49 year-olds. It also flopped with 25-54s (1.5%), 18-39s (1.3%) and household shoppers with kids (3.0%). Its chief rival, Three’s Married at First Sight Australia, averaged 4.7% of 18-49s, […]

HD Ratings: Eggs Beaten at First Sight

TVNZ 2’s new local drama Fresh Eggs couldn’t crack Three’s Tuesday night supremacy with Married at First Sight and NCIS.

HD Ratings: The Rookie Earns Its Stripes

Three’s The Rookie earned its highest ratings so far on Monday when it crushed TVNZ 1’s Manifest and TVNZ 2’s Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back. It benefitted from Married at First Sight’s heroic lead-in but its popularity also exposed the weakness of TVNZ’s competition. The Rookie won the 9.00 hour in the […]

HD Ratings: Manifest Nosedives on Take-off

TVNZ 1’s Manifest (8.30 Mondays) got off to a bumpy start last week but fared better on TVNZ 2, suggesting the Lost-style drama should have been scheduled on the latter from the outset. The first hour of the double-episode averaged 2.7% of TVNZ 1’s core commercial demographic, 25-54 year-olds, on the back of The Casketeers’ […]

HD Ratings: TVNZ 2 Extends Reach

The wisdom of Three’s new Sunday night movie strategy — playing female-skewed titles after Married at First Sight NZ — will need revising after TVNZ 2 pummelled Me Before You with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The Tom Cruise sequel won its slot in all the core commercial demographics on Sunday. It averaged 5.4% of […]

HD Ratings: Last Rites for The Brave?

Continuing low ratings for TVNZ 1’s new Monday night drama The Brave could see it shunted off to off-peak. Monday’s episode averaged only 2.0% of the network’s core commercial demographic, 25-54 year-olds, compared to 4.8% for TVNZ 2’s Young Sheldon and 4.5% for Three’s 9-1-1. The problem for The Brave is it starts at 8.30, […]

HD Ratings: Cocaine Fuels TVNZ 1

The launch of Gordon Ramsay on Cocaine and the return of 20/20 helped TVNZ 1 to largely win Tuesday night amid fierce competition from TVNZ 2 and Three. It posted a 24.3% share of the key 25-54 demographic compared to 2’s 21.5% and Three’s 21.7%. Ramsay’s 3.4 rating didn’t win the hour but it improved on […]
