2023 Ratings predictions

Post your predictions for ratings in 2023.

The 2023 OzTAM Calendar has been released. The year commences Sunday 1 January and will run for 52 weeks until Saturday 30 December (the 2022 year was 53 weeks)

The ratings period will start in week 7 on 12 February and run until 2 December with the Easter break running 2 - 15 April.

No Olympics or Comm Games this year!


Thanks for posting tthe schedule for the 2023 Ratings Year.

The calendar fell right for 2023 ratings wise, starting on a Sunday (Jan 1), and ending on Dec 30.

With no major sportong events, it will be tough atm to see who wins the actual ratings season.

My predictions: 10 will still struggle on 99% of Saturday nights. And most Friday nights.

Interesting to see the ratings period start and end one week later than previous years.
