Seven finishes the week on a high though it was a very low rating Saturday night for FTA. Not many nights when 10 News First makes the top 5. Seven was up one with SBS also improved from last week. ABC and Nine were steady while 10’s share took a hit.

The AFL’s 488,000 was on par with most Saturday’s while The Durrells got an unexpected boost to a series high for ABC.

With split schedules none of the movies on offer made the top 20, The Dog House repeat was about even for 10 and the NRL only just made the top 20.

Weekend Sunrise was 60k ahead of Weekend Today winning all markets except Brisbane.

Big audience for Nine News in Melbourne.

Not often we see Ten’s News make the top 5. So good on them. Ten’s rest of the night was normal though.

AFL certainly helped Seven win the night.

ABC News dominated the multi-list, with a few daytime slots making the top 20.

Would be a great time to extend Saturday night news to 6:30 for week round consistency at a time when news audiences are high.

And also before Football starts airing on the network and would fill the gap between news and whatever pre-game show they air before coverage.

I wouldn’t say 371K is really an achievement worth celebrating.

An improvement is still an improvement, no matter which way you look at it.

In saying that, it’s easier to increase when you’re starting from a lower base.

Highest rated Saturday bulletin for 10 since April 2020.

3 Likes

Biggest Saturday bulletin in nearly 18 months is good. Let’s admit that it’s never going to get numbers that Seven and Nine News are getting at 6pm. But it did beat the 5pm News over on Seven and Nine.

Seven News Sydney wins the night by a decent margin after doing well for the past few nights.

Just ~10k separated Seven and Nine News Adelaide.

Still a huge gap between Seven and Nine News Perth.

I watched it and for a National Bulletin on a Saturday it was actually not bad. Clearly their limitations exist on the weekdays with these mess of a hybrid bulletins in Syd/Bris and Mel/Adel.

You wouldn’t have wanted to be an SA viewer tough on 10 as that bulletin barely catered for that market at all.

They have some of the longest serving reporters too for 10, like Alan Murrell and Brett Clappis

Ten weekend news way back in the 2000s used to rate 700-800K on the weekends. Was the highest rating national produced bulletin from memory.

Well, it was the only wasn’t it? Same 10 or 11 years ago. Ten News At Five weeknights often did that too, recall it hit 1m metro early in 2009 for example.

They struggled sort of 2006 - 2008 on weekends when they took Tracey Spicer off (and eventually being sacked from Morning News too), they had Nine’s old Steve Liebmann and then Bill Woods. Natasha Belling returning to the role full time after maternity leave in early-mid 2009 was a success though, she remained in that role for many years.
