HD Ratings: Lively Finale for The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead ended its fourth season on Monday by winning the 9.30 hour for TV2.

It averaged 4.5% – 8.9% of the key demographics, and although the numbers weren’t as spectacular as in the US, where it notched up a ratings milestone, they were nonetheless high enough to see off TV3’s re-run of the movie Jumper (4.6% – 7.43%).

As to who did survive the finale for another season, The Hollywood Reporter says three newcomers have been promoted to series regulars for season five while Deadline Hollywood reports other developments.

Dead’s only other HD competition, TV One’s The Following, averaged a mere 0.7% – 2.6%. – which, in a couple of demos, rated lower than Prime’s 60 Minutes (0.9% – 3.6%).

But TV One had more success at 8.30, when Person of Interest out-rated TV2’s comedies in the 25-54 and household shoppers demos.

Overall, PoI averaged 2.6% – 9.8% on the back of MasterChef NZ’s 5.0% – 12.2%, which also rivalled TV2’s comedies in the 25-54 and HHS demos.

On the back of Shortland Street’s 14.8% – 23.0%, The Middle averaged an anything but middling 11.8% – 14.6%, Trophy Wife 9.2% – 12.6%, Super Fun Night 7.9% – 9.5%, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine 5.7% – 7.8%.

TV3’s penultimate episode of The GC scored 5.1% – 5.5% after Road Cops’ 4.3% – 7.0%.

TV2 was the night’s big winner, improving its ratings and shares in all the key demos over the previous Monday while TV One suffered the opposite and TV3 gained only in the HHS demo.

Monday’s peak-hour HD channel ratings and shares were:

  • Adults 18-49: TV One, 5.8 rating/20.4 share; TV2, 8.5 rating/29.6 share; TV3, 5.3 rating/18.6 share
  • Adults 18-39: TV One, 4.0 rating/15.1 share; TV2, 8.7 rating/32.6 share; TV3, 5.1 rating/19.2 share
  • Adults 25-54: TV One, 7.3 rating/23.3 share; TV2, 8.3 rating/26.5 share; TV3, 5.6 rating/18.0 share
  • HHS: TV One, 9.1 rating/23.0 share; TV2, 12.0 rating/30.7 share; TV3, 7.3 rating/18.6 share.

  1. I bet TV3 are annoyed that they didn’t screen How I Met Your Mother earlier with the controversy regarding the ending. Anyhow I love how it ended and I also love watching it in HD 🙂

  2. Has TV3 run of of action movies? Jumper has been on 3-4 times now.
