HDTV Ratings: Red Eye Gets Black Eye

TV2’s abrupt rescheduling of Tuesday nights, replacing re-runs of The Mentalist with movies, failed to dent the momentum of Outrageous Fortune.

TV3’s HD comedy/drama last night drew two-to-three times the viewership of Red Eye in all the key demographics, the gap being widest with TV2’s target audience, 18-39 year-olds (18.9% vs 5.8%).

The trend continued when Fortune’s HD stablemate, Californication, easily out-rated the second half of Red Eye, although not by the same margin, leaving Fringe, in the one-off later time slot of 10.15pm, unable to reach 6% of key demos.

Another of TV3’s NZ HD attractions, The Secret Lives of Dancers, also is rating well at 8pm, with last night’s episode keeping pace with TV2’s reality hit, My Kitchen Rules.

On Mondays, TV3’s HD reality show, Road Cops, is holding its own opposite TV2’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, while TV One’s HD season finale of Rapid Response won its competitive 8pm slot.

And on Saturday, TV One’s premiere of its HD cooking show, Annabel Langbein The Free Range Cook, mashed the competition when it dished up 10.3% of 18-49 year-olds and 13.1% of 25-54 year-olds.
