The unofficial ratings period is prime time 6 February – 24 November 2022 excluding 2 weeks at Easter (10/4/22 – 23/4/22).
The table able represents info available from OzTAM and is 7-day consolidated which has been used as the standard for determining weekly shares since the measurement was available. There are still 2 weeks to add in of consolidated data with the table using overnight instead. It may differ from what is posted elsewhere because tables prepared by Nine are 28-day consolidated.
The final 7-day consolidated data has been released by OzTAM. The network shares posted above are confirmed with Seven winning the ratings year by just 0.1%. Worth noting that at week 47 it was a tie between the 2 networks.
Above table has been adjusted to the final official numbers.
As well as well-recognised AFL/NRL differences that impact Seven and Nine, ABC’s audience varies by as much as 4 points with the network finishing behind 10 in three out of five markets as 10 underperforms in the two biggest markets compared to Brisbane and Perth.
Seven’s best day changed back to Friday, from Saturday last year but it was still the end of week AFL games that gave the network its best results.
No change for Nine where Sunday reality plus 60 Minutes produced the network’s best results, though SOO helped Wednesday.
Monday was 10’s best night helped by HYBPA with Tuesday now into second place. Thursday that was the traditional best night for 10 slipped this year with no Bachelor franchise.
After a poor performance on last year Saturday was back on top for ABC while Fridays underperformed.
SBS scored double figures on with its competitive Saturday line-up after Thursday had been the network’s best performer in recent years.
Compared to last year, 10 was down on every day with Seven down on all days but Friday where it was up 0.1. Nine was up all days except Saturday where ABC was up 3.5 and SBS up 1.6. SBS gained audience share every day.
