HD Ratings: Stand-out Stand-Up Send-off

Russell Howard Stands Up to the World had a stand-out finale on Wednesday, when it won its slot with the highest ratings of its three-week TVNZ 2 run.

It averaged 4.1% of 25-54 year-olds and 3.7% of 18-49s vs 2.1% / 1.7% for Location Location Location and 1.2% / 0.8% for LA’s Finest.

Wednesday also was notable for MasterChef Australia extending its lead over The Block NZ.

In both core commercial demographics, the TVNZ 2 cooking contest led Three’s construction challenge by a full rating point — although both were beaten by TVNZ 1’s Beat the Chasers.

Chasers averaged 5.0% / 3.9% of 25-54 / 18-49, MasterChef 4.3% / 3.5% and Block 3.3% / 2.5%.

Such has been the decline in viewership of Three’s LA’s Finest that it was out-rated even by Prime’s Massive Engineering Mistakes (1.3% / 1.2%) on the back of Traffic Cops (1.1% / 1.0%).

Howard’s popularity carried through to a re-run of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown easily winning its slot in the key demos opposite Coronation Street and Three’s Wimbledon coverage.

Earlier, Seven Sharp trounced Shortland Street and The Project, which finished third in both demos.

TVNZ 1 comfortably won the night’s biggest demo shares while TVNZ 2 was well ahead of Three.

  1. Loki is by far the best show on Wednesday nights in fact of every night. Why do people waste their time on second rate shows 🤔

  2. Summing up the viewing audience, Trevor, it would appear that they don’t. Only about 10% of 25-54s and less than 10% of 18-49s bother with the 3 main channels. If you recall NZ On Air’s reports it would seem that most are watching YouTube and then the other streaming options. But the individual properties on each of those streamers is very small (including Loki if the analysis overseas is correct).
