The “bombshell” interview Oprah with Megham and Harry drew an overnight audience of 1.366 million to give 10 its highest overnight share since October 2017. 10 won all markets and key demo groups topping 40% in 16-39.

The interview also helped to draw extra audiences to news broadcasts and current affairs shows that saw Married At First Sight slipped to seventh place on 804,000. That was down 200k from the previous week with Under Investigation that followed losing more than 300k for its second episode.

ABC’s Four Corners did well at 8.30 with its Canberra Bubble episode.

Later Hughsey lifted to make the top 20.

Seven’s Ultimate Tag was lost in the crossfire well outside the top 20 losing 200k from its premiere episode.

Massive audience for Oprah with Meghan and Harry. Easily the most-watched non-news show of the year so far. It was also a hit in USA with 17 million viewers and dominated conversation on social media.

Shocking night for Seven with both Ultimate Tag and 9-1-1 out of top 20. However, Seven News won the hour in Melbourne.

That is the show’s second lowest audience of the season (corrected).

Ultimate Tag take the crown off The Biggest Loser.

Oprah did 17m in the US. Was always going to go high going off the talk I’ve been hearing last week about it.

As someone said 10 should have had a live Project special on right after Oprah

There were extensive discussions on The Project last night before the Oprah interview.

That’s something completely different to wasting a 1.3 million lead in

Huge numbers for The Oprah Interview. Well done to Ten. A big loft to the Project also. The only downsize is the million drop off for Hughesy.

Ultimate Tags numbers: hahaha! No other words needed

Ultimate Tag’s going the way of Holey Moley Australia. It’ll only have one season, i’ll bet you on that.

I knew that with all the excitement around the interview (as well as it airing only a few hours after America’s broadcast) that it would gain huge ratings. I’m not really expecting the same for the New Zealand broadcast (tonight at 7:30pm on Three) with all the media hype beginning to die down over here.

Besides, we’re a smaller country, we’d be lucky to get a million on the biggest shows.

Married at first sight dropped from the previous episode (7 March 2021). Under Investigation dropped by More than 30% from the premiere episode.
A dreadful night for Seven with Ultimate Tag, losing 200k from previous episode. Nevertheless, seven news won the hour in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth

Well there you go. I know it’s only a one-off but the ratings for this interview is pretty darn impressive and it just proves that as long as there is something appealing to the wider audience then people will switch to it in droves.

Seven are probably considering whether or not to rush Big Brother onto air as soon as possible. Those ratings are diabolical.

Actually Holey Moley maintained around 500k.
Ultimate Tag is a certified bomb, only had to watch a promo to give it a miss.

Not only did Ultimate Tag miss the top 20 in total people to rank 26th, it was 21st in the 25-54.

While it was a tough night, I can’t see that the result would have been any different if it was only run once per week. The show is clearly a dud and Seven will be dragging out the factuals earlier than planned to fill the schedule.

I actually thought Oprah’s interview might have even done a bit bigger than that given the hype but that still a huge audience for FTA.

Well there is obviously a clear reason for that and it will be back to usual numbers tonight.

MAFS did well considering it literally had almost 900k additional competition to usual on another network and they both would appeal to a very similar audience.

Next Monday on 7: double eps of motorway patrol

Hey, maybe Ultimate Tag shall do well in Catchup.

You mean Highway Patrol? Motorway Patrol is the Kiwi version of it.

National ratings for the Oprah special is here. It was first in the regional areas it appears.

The show rated lower two weeks ago with 772,000 on Thursday 25 Feb.

No it wasn’t. Though it did top the key demos.
