HDTV Ratings: March 9

Anarchy gang almost as mighty as Johnsons

TV3’s Sons of Anarchy has revved up the network’s 9.30pm ratings to become almost as popular as The Almighty Johnsons.

Last night’s episode was watched by 8.8% of the audience TV3 is targeting, 25-54 year-olds, and 8.2% of its traditional viewership, 18-49 year-olds, putting it only a rating point or so behind Monday’s The Almighty Johnsons.

In the household shoppers with kids demographic, two points separated them, with Anarchy drawing 11.6%.

However, HD lead-in Hawaii Five-O is struggling, drawing 4.8%-5.9% of key demos opposite TV2’s sitcom juggernaut of The Big Bang Theory and Cougar Town, which attracts three times as many viewers.

The flow-on from Two and a Half Men, the night’s most watched series, through two-and-a-half hours of more comedy means even late-night repeats of The Mentalist are rating well for TV2.

TV One’s only HD offering, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Parenting, out-rates TV2’s Scrubs with 25-54 year-olds, and is merely a couple of points behind the aging medics sitcom in other key demos, with the gap only widening markedly in TV2’s target age group, 18-39 year-olds.
