HD Ratings: MasterChef NZ Goes Off the Boil

After the season premiere won its Sunday night slot, Monday’s broadcast of MasterChef NZ finished third in the 7.30 hour in the core commercial demographics.

Episode two was beaten by TVNZ 1 warhorses Fair Go and Breaking Bad: Bradley Walsh & Son as well as TVNZ 2’s Lego Masters NZ.

It averaged 3.0% of 25-54s and 2.3% of 18-49s vs 4.2%/21.7% for Fair Go, 3.8%/2.8% for Breaking Dad and 3.2%/2.7% for Lego.

It was a big rebound for the TVNZ 1 duo, which in previous weeks had been losing ground to Lego and Three’s Dancing With the Stars NZ.

But their popularity wasn’t enough for lead-out Gino, Gino & Fred’s Road Trip to win the 8.30 hour.

The repeat was beaten by TVNZ 2’s Down for Love, which averaged 3.1% of 25-54s and 2.6% of 18-49s to also out-rate Three’s 9-1-1.

While TVNZ 1’s 20/20 dominated at 9.30 in the 25-54 demo, in the 18-49 race the first half lost to the second half of 9-1-1.

The appeal of The Chase, 1 News at 6pm and Seven Sharp ensured TVNZ 1 won the night with 30+ shares of both key demos while Three was second among 25-54s and TVNZ 2 edged ahead of it in the 18-49 stakes.

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

    I see Warner Bros. Discovery have got a new show on the way called Madame Mom and I have a feeling it will be on their streaming service since it’s going under ANZ 😁

  2. Talking about ratings, I bet Netflix will be raving about the Stranger Things viewership. I just finished it over 3 days and in my opinion these first 7 episodes are better than the three previous series combined.

  3. Thanks, Darren. Anyone who hasn’t caught up with the Stranger Things S4 phenomenon should read this Variety report.
