HD Ratings: Go Girls Goes Backwards

The new-look Go Girls appears to be losing old fans rather than gaining new ones.

The re-cast fifth season struggled out of the gate last week and last night shed more viewers, despite a celebrity guest turn by One News anchor Simon Dallow.

It averaged 6.9% – 8.9% of the major demographics, which is a surprising setback for a show that once scored double-digit ratings.

Its household shoppers viewership virtually halved, from 13.6% on the back of blockbuster My Kitchen Rules to 7.3%.

The decline wasn’t as dire in other demos but still was down nearly four rating points with adults 18-39, 18-49 and 25-54.

Go Girls won the slot in the 18-39 demo, which is TV2’s target audience, but even so it opened with a 10.8 rating and ended with a 6.7 rating.

Go Girls’ early season slump allowed Galapagos With David Attenborough to largely win the 8.30 hour with a 5.7% – 11.2% average while NCIS finished third on 5.0% – 7.8%.

NCIS: Los Angeles averaged 5.3% – 6.7% to out-rate HD rival Revenge (4.0% – 5.4%) in each of the major demos while Fringe ended its run with 1.9% – 3.1%.

Early in the evening, Shortland Street had another stonking night, with an 18.9% – 27.5% rating, while HD comedies Modern Family and Go On both improved from the previous week: the former averaged 5.1% – 6.7%, and the latter 4.0% – 5.0%.

  1. Go On is SUCH a funny show, it should be rating through the roof and beyond :)

  2. Funny not! Modern Family is funny, Go On is just another tired yank ‘comedy’.

  3. Well Go On is no more!! NBC has cancelled it, along with The New Normal!!

  4. Yes, they’ve gone, along with a slew of others you can read about here.
