Data © OzTAM Pty Limited 2021. The Data may not be reproduced, published or communicated (electronically or in hard copy) in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of OzTAM. “Overnight” figures include “Live” (programs broadcast during the 2am-2am broadcast day) and “As Live” (programs recorded and then watched within the same broadcast day). “Consolidated” figures include Live, As Live and “Time Shift” (programs recorded and then watched within seven days of the initial broadcast).

The third consecutive Friday with Seven and Nine News at 6pm over one million viewers saw Seven 10 points clear of Nine and an easy winner. It was Seven’s best Friday in four weeks and Nine’s lowest in five. Meanwhile 10 recorded its best Friday of the 2021 survey as ABC slipped to its lowest. SBS was down week-on-week.

AFL was up over 600k for the first time in three weeks as NRL was down on its usual result. ACA took a hit at 7pm slipping out of the top 5 to 8th place while The Project was up to its best Friday of the year. That saw The Living Room that followed up 85k week-on-week.

Better Homes and Gardens was down 65k from last Friday but still won the timeslot. Midsomer Murders later did well for ABC.

Clearly with our two biggest cities in lockdown, numbers are up. I expect Saturday to be the same.

Do ABC break their coverage down hour by hour or is this the stretch between breakfast and noon?

Based on my own calculation of the rating points for both Nine and Seven, it looks like Seven may have a chance to win this 'SOO" week if they win Saturday over Nine by at least 5 points and above. Don’t punish me like my high school Maths teacher if I got it wrong :pray:

I used to get really excited with the Ratings thread in this forum when the WTD ratings for the 2 networks were really close.

Between 9am and 12 noon.

Looks like 10’s younger audience are staying at home and with some even watching FTA.

Some concerning drop offs in the 6:30pm half hour of news.

Seven News Sydney lost 51k viewers and Nine News Melbourne lost 74k viewers.

Your high school maths isn’t wrong it is just that you have the wrong calculation method. Weekly ratings are not an average of each day. The average is based on a count of number of viewers across the week.

A good result on a Monday for example when viewing numbers are high is worth much more than a Saturday when numbers are lower.
