HD Ratings: NCIS Fans Split

NCIS fans appear to be torn between the original and the latest spin-off, Hawai’i, following TVNZ 2’s decision to pit the latter against the former on Three.

Hawai’i won both core commercial demographics the first night they clashed but Tuesday’s re-match saw NCIS win with Three’s target audience, 25-54 year-olds, and Hawai’i with TVNZ 2’s 18-49s.

NCIS averaged 1.9% of 25-54s and 1.2% of 18-49s vs 1.5% and 1.3% for Hawai’i.

With all people aged 5+, NCIS was the clear winner, averaging 2.2% compared with 1.7% for Hawai’i.

The law-and-order contest continued at 9.30, when NCIS: Los Angeles beat FBI International in the 25-54 demo (0.9% vs 0.6%) and split the 18-49 vote (0.5%).

But both were topped by TVNZ 1’s Coronation Street, which averaged 1.2% of 25-54s and 0.9% of 18-49s.

That was on the back of First Responders winning the 8.30 hour, with 2.2%/1.7% of these demos.

TVNZ 1 also dominated earlier, with 1 News at 6pm and Seven Sharp easily winning their slots, although lead-outs The Casketeers and Lap of Luxury lost to TVNZ 2’s repeat of Travel Guides (Australia).

Three’s Bondi Rescue double-ep, which last year was one of the channel’s top performers, finished third.

Prime’s free-to-air runs of And Just Like That … and Your Honor continued to struggle, with 25-54 averages of only 0.1%.

These high-profile HBO Max and Showtime series even were beaten by Eden’s Lose a Stone in 21 Days (0.9%) and Escape to the Chateau DIY (1.0%), Duke’s classic movie The Killing Fields (0.7%), and Maori TV’s Africa’s Wild Horizons (0.2%) and Toa Hunter Gatherer (0.4%).

TVNZ 1 won the night with 28+ shares of the core demos; Three beat TVNZ 2 in the 25-54 race but not 18-49.

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

    Could Prime give up on premium drama focus because nobody want to see them on TV because most Kiwis would rather watch it on Neon which it is a waste of their resources on the low rating FTA channel could face closure very shortly if it do not lure viewers in their next strategy.

  2. Wonder that Prime’s premium drama strategy doomed to be a failure since most Kiwis just want to watch it on Neon because that is a wasted opportunity for the network and could risk being closed.
