HD Ratings: Three Waltzes Off With Big Wins

MediaWorks reports the grand final of Dancing With the Stars wiped the dance floor with the competition on Sunday, averaging 9.1% of 25-54 year-olds to earn a 29.8% audience share (across both Three and Three +1).

It also won the 5+ race, with a 9.9 rating and 29.3% share, and helped Three to win the night with a 28.9% share of 25-54s, its target audience.

Across the series, DWTS averaged 8.5% of 25-54s (or a 24.9% share).

Its lead-out, the network movie premiere of The Boss, also dominated its slot, with a 4.3 rating/25.0% share of 25-54s.

DWTS’ two-hour swansong capped an exceptionally strong week for Three.

Predictably, The Graham Norton Show and 7 Days owned Friday night.

But the network also scored in other key time slots across the week.

Off the back of last Monday’s DWTS, the season finale of Lost & Found averaged 6.5% of 25-54s and won the 8.30 hour outright in all the core demos, as did lead-out Killer Women With Piers Morgan.

Similarly, Tuesday’s crime dramas NCIS and SVU also stole the night, winning their slots in the 25-54 and household shoppers-with-kids demographics.

And on Wednesday, Hawaii Five-O returned to win the 10.00 hour in the 18-39 and HHS/k demos while finishing second to TVNZ 1’s Coronation Street in the 25-54 and 18-49 stakes.

Lead-in NCIS: Los Angeles out-rated 1’s Doctor Doctor and TVNZ 2’s The Mick in the age demos, as well as the first half-hour of 2’s Lethal Weapon.

Three’s Buying Blind also started strongly, winning its 90-minute slot in the 25-54 and HHS/k demos.

Only on Thursday did Three falter, when Jono and Ben and X-Men Origins: Wolverine were thrashed by 2’s reality line-up.
