HD Ratings: Kiwi Chefs Beat Aussie Rivals

Three’s Sunday night season finale of MasterChef NZ creamed TVNZ 2’s Aussie rival but still couldn’t quite rise to the occasion and whip TVNZ 1’s line-up.

It averaged 3.2% of 25-54 year-olds and 2.1% of 18-49s, the core commercial demographics all three networks relish.

MasterChef Australia averaged 2.8%/1.9% and TVNZ 1’s Hyundai Country Calendar 6.7%/5.0% and Sunday 3.6%/2.7%.

But MasterChef NZ did win its final half-hour against Sunday, when Sam Low emerged the winner.

TVNZ 1’s George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces won the 8.30 hour, with 2.9%/2.4%, but lead-out This Is Going to Hurt (1.2%/0.9%) lost to the movies on TVNZ 2 and Three.

John Wick: Chapter 2 and 1917 each averaged 2.0% of 25-54s but TVNZ 2’s Keanu Reeve sequel had the edge in the 18-49 race, when it averaged 1.3% against the WWI Oscar-winner’s 1.1%.

On the smaller HD channels, Duke’s Along for the Ride With David O’Doherty (0.3%/0.4%) and Top Gear America (0.3%/0.2%) dominated against Eden’s movie Stardust (0.2%/0.1%), Whakaata Māori‘s My Life as a Zucchini (0.0%/0/0%), and Prime’s The Cleaning Lady (0.2%/0.0%) and Yellowstone (0.1%/0.0%).

TVNZ 1 won the night with the biggest share of 25-54s and 18-49s while Three led TVNZ 2.

On Saturday, Sky’s international rugby coverage again walloped the networks’ movies and TVNZ 1’s UK dramas, including the premiere of Screw (0.9%/0.8%).

On Friday, TVNZ 1 scored a clean 25-54 sweep with its lifestyle block but the last hour of TVNZ 2’s Britain’s Got Talent won the 18-49 demo.

Note: These overnight ratings exclude viewership of the networks’ +1 SD channels.
