Lomas and 7 Days Shine for Three

The weekend’s ratings were a washout for Three but the popularity of David Lomas Investigates and 7 Days helped it to win key midweek nights in the core commercial demographic.

On Thursday it averaged a 26.43 share of 25-54 year-olds (vs 25.03 for TVNZ 1 and 11.47 for TVNZ 2).

The season final of 7 Days won the 7.30 hour, with 102,107 viewers in this demo (4.98 rating/26.08 share), and The Comedy Treatment dominated  at 8.30, with 67,874 viewers (3.31 rating/22.52 share).

On Wednesday, David Lomas Investigates easily out-rated TVNZ 1 crowdpleaser Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad and TVNZ 2’s Hunted Australia.

Lomas averaged 98,370 adults (4.79 rating/26.68 share) vs 60,632 (2.95 rating/17.93 share) for Bad and 47,593 viewers (2.32 rating/14.22 share) for Hunted.

Three also won the 8.30 hour with a repeat of Love It Or List It Australia, which drew 23,000 more 25-54 year-olds than TVNZ 1’s Location Location Location.

TVNZ 2’s 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown started 20 minutes later, to average 31,276 viewers (1.52 rating/13.94 share).

And Newshub Late at 9.35 capped the night for Three, winning its slot with a 1.97 rating/19.59 share.

As a result, Three again won the night, with a peak-demo share of 28.29 vs 26.79 for TVNZ 1 and 14.80 for TVNZ 2.

Tuesday was a strong night, too, with Three trailing TVNZ 1: a 21.63 peak share vs a 25.23 share (TVNZ 2 averaged 17.56).

Three’s The Traitors NZ and TVNZ 2’s Taskmaster NZ were neck and neck at 7.30, with more than 72,000 viewers each vs 60,465 for TVNZ 1’s Your Home Made Perfect.

But TVNZ 1 newcomer Paramedics won the 8.30 hour with 50,161 adults 25-54; NCIS: Hawai’i averaged 41,690 for TVNZ 2 and Three’s Accused, 33,890.

Three bombed on Friday, when its peak share was slashed to 9.32 (vs 25.03 for TVNZ 1 and 15.26 for TVNZ 2); on Sunday, Three’s share was 12.31 vs 31.29 for TVNZ 1 and 20.59 for TVNZ 2.

TVNZ 1’s usual Sunday line-up rated strongly but was challenged by an extraordinary rating of 5.18 for TVNZ 2’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (it lost to Hyundai Country Calendar but out-rated Sunday).

The Brokenwood Mysteries ended its run with a 2.60 rating/17.78 share, which was down week-on-week but higher than earlier episodes.

On Saturday, TVNZ 1 averaged a 25.97 share, Three 15.18 and TVNZ 2 13.93.
