HD Ratings: Would I Lie to You?

Expect TV3 to overhaul its Sunday schedule if ratings continue as badly as this weekend’s.

After dominating 7pm-9pm with an HD re-run of Ice Age, the network’s ratings nosedived with a Graham Norton Show re-run and the season premiere of Would I Lie to You?

This was the much funnier British original but chances are the panel show’s been so tainted by TV3’s own version that viewers either weren’t prepared to sample it or they mistook it for another run of the Paul Henry-hosted bomb.

Ice Age averaged 7.2% – 9.0% of the major demographics to challenge or beat TV2’s Neighbours at War, The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly.

But TV2 took back the night with its HD premiere of Bad Teacher (8.5% – 13.8%), which drew 3-4 times the viewership of TV3’s true Brit wits.

Bad Teacher’s popularity helped TV2’s late-night HD horror premiere, The Haunting of Connecticut, to scare up 2.8% – 4.2%.

TV One’s HD ratings were down, with The Food Truck averaging a sub-par 5.8% – 7.6% and Call the Midwife 4.3% – 6.8%, although up on the previous week was Mr Selfridge, with 2.2% – 5.1%.

TV One’s Saturday HD line-up was largely stronger than the competition, with Hyundai Country Calendar averaging 3.8% – 7.9%, Coasters 2.7% – 6.5%, Dishing Up Australia With Al Brown 3.2% – 5.6% and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries 1.7% – 4.8%.

TV3’s Ice Road Truckers averaged 3.9% – 5.5% and Blue Bloods 1.5% – 3.6%, which is below what CSI: NY was averaging.

TV2’s Mitre 10 Dream Home: Offcuts rated only 2.3% – 5.7% and The Voice Australia 4.1% – 6.9% compared to 7.4% – 10.4% for Friday’s edition.

Friday’s House Rules averaged 6.3% – 8.3%, Graham Norton 5.9% – 6.9% and Super City a less-than-super 2.5% – 3.0%.
