HD Ratings: Black Night for Grey’s

Grey’s Anatomy hit a season and historic low on Monday when it averaged an anaemic 2.2% – 3.2% of the major demographics. The ageing hospital soap was thrashed by TV3’s repeat of Fast Five (5.3% – 6.5%), which was most popular with TV2’s target audience, 18-39 year-olds. Moreover, Grey’s was less than a point ahead […]

HD Ratings: The Following Finale Falls Flat

The Following may have been renewed for a third season but don’t expect to see it back in primetime on TV One. Credit to the network for sticking with the series for its full run, given the persistently low ratings and a history of dumping dramas with higher ratings much quicker. But its meagre following […]

HD Ratings: TV3 Big Gun Blasts Rivals

Monday’s network premiere of Battleship on TV3 blew the competition out of the water. The blockbuster averaged 5.4% – 8.4% of the major demographics, which was modest compared to how it would have rated on TV2.

HD Ratings: Road Cops and Robots Rock

TV3’s Monday ratings got a lift from Road Cops getting into top gear and I, Robot still having surprising pulling power.

HD Ratings: Super Fun Monday Sours

Don’t be surprised if TV2 pulls Scandal from its “super fun Monday” line-up after the second episode nosedived worse than the first. While the network’s two-hour comedy block largely won 7.30-9.30, lead-out Scandal came a distant third after TV One’s Britcom re-runs and TV3’s movie, a repeat of Repo Men. Clearly, Kiwis aren’t as “crazy […]
