Shortland Street Scrubs Up

Shortland Street’s top-rating run continued Tuesday, when it out-rated both Seven Sharp and The Project in the coveted 25-54 demographic.

The TVNZ 2 serial averaged 98,069 adults vs 91,275 for SS and 57,080 for Project.

It averaged a 4.78 rating/26/37 share and set up lead-out MasterChef Australia to win the 7.30 hour with a 4.10 rating/24.05 share or 84,191 viewers aged 25-54.

TVNZ 1’s season premiere of Your Home Made Perfect averaged a 3.21 rating/20.32 share (65,800) and Three’s Million Dollar Island a 2.28 rating/15.15 share (46,717).

It was another disastrous night for Three’s Accused, which averaged a 0.67 rating/8.26 share (15,646).

The premium drama’s fortunes weren’t helped by starting half-an-hour after TVNZ 2’s NSCI: Hawai’i (2.18 rating/17.53 share, 44,773) and nearly a quarter-hour after TVNZ 1’s low-rating Huge Homes With Hugh Dennis (1.70 rating/15.92 share, 34,861).

TVNZ 2 also carried the 9.30 hour, with Phrogging: Hider in My House averaging a 0.97 rating/13.72 share and 19,910 viewers.

But lead-out Walking Dead: Dead City failed to crack the night’s top-20 shows in the core commercial demo, and neither did TVNZ 1’s Coronation Street half-an-hour earlier.

The night’s most-watched 25-54 programmes were: 1 NewsThe Chase (5.30), Shortland StreetSeven SharpMasterChef AustraliaNewshub Live at 6pm, Your Home Made Perfect, Home and AwayThe Project and Million Dollar Island.

    If these disastrous ratings continued for Accused, then Three will have to pull the series off prime-time into late-night burn off.
