Seven surged back into contention the ratings race with the AFL’s first game of the season helping the network to its highest audience share of the 2021 survey. Seven’s best market was Melbourne with a +40% market share with wins in Adelaide and Perth as well. Nine had +30% audiences in NRL territory.

The AFL was the number one show in Melbourne and Adelaide and scored 668,000 viewers that compares to 798,000 for the first game of 2020. 7Mate did well in Perth ranking 4th ahead on Nine’s main channel.

Gogglebox slipped to its lowest audience of the year but remained competitive in the key demo groups.
ABC’s Back Roads and Q+A lost audience against the increased competition.

Seven’s winning margin of 8.8% in network shares was the same as the opening night of the AFL season last year but the primary share was lower. The pay TV ratings should reveal whether some fans switched to Fox Footy to watch the game.

The Foxtel figure for AFL was 243,000, down from 339,000 in 2020.

ABc news won over 7 news in Perth. In fact, ABC News was the number 1 show of the night.
Nine News Adelaide had a rare Thursday win over 7 News. I Feel that nine News Is starting to become More competitive in SA capital.
Seven News won the 6pm news in Briabnae. A big swing at 6:30pm with Nine beating 7 news in its timeslot.

Only at 6pm. They fell behind at 6.30 and across the whole hour.

Still, a sign of being more competitive than ever.

That is quite a drop from last year.
I can’t remember the last time an AFL season opener was outrated by live NRL (in pay TV ratings).

Seven’s average year so far in the ratings, now gets a boost, thanks to the AFL.

It was 228K in 2019 which was the same as the NRL

Last year the games were shorter which would lead to higher averages

It’s worth pointing out that games can now be streamed ad-free on Kayo. In previous seasons, the only way to watch Ch 7 produced games ad free was on FOX Footy via Foxtel cable or satellite.

Wow, don’t believe it! What happened there :relieved:

News looked really low across the board last night, Seven beaten by Nine at 6pm across the five city too.

Oh of course. Surprising 7mate got such a large share, considering the game was over just after 7pm

Is there any trend, where Nine do particularly bad when the AFL is airing on Seven in Melbourne? New local show Mega Zoo was even beaten by 10’s new Territory Cops in the market, as well as also outranked by Gogglebox. Mega Zoo also ranked higher in Adelaide and Perth.

What were the NRL numbers in Melb / Adelaide / perth?

Have edited above to include those numbers as supplied from Nine.

I hope these results at least reduce the suggestions that The Cube should move to Thursdays (and 10’s factuals move to Wednesday in competition with Seven’s).

Do you have the actual rating numbers (rather than rankings)?
