Last night’s close five set match won by Nick Kyrgios delivered Nine its highest share of the Australia Open and 2021 so far. Seven stayed competitive, despite dropping 3 points. 10 fared worse losing 4 while ABC was down 2.
Nine won all markets except Perth that was won by Seven with a 12 point margin. Melbourne was Nine’s best market with a +40% share.

Nine strategically divided the night session into two (a first) with 625,000 and 704,000 while the late night drew 420,000. The only motivation that makes sense for the spit coding is to give a higher headline figure.

Seven debuted Ambulance Code Red to 366,000 and The Bay Season 2 that ranked 21st while 10’s Jamie’s Easy Meals just made the top 20 with 268,000.

The second episode of Aftertaste dropped 120,000 but The Weekly held up better managing over 500k. Hard Quiz was the top non news / non sport program.

The big drop in Aftertaste suggested some fans were watching the tennis, and would catch up on the show on iView or on their PVR recording later. I hope it has nothing to do with the quality of the series.

The Bay season 2 should also do well in timeshifting.

Big audience for the morning repeat of Bluey.

Tennis now coded into 3? Night; Night Session 2; Late (plus the pre-game).

Kyrgios gave the Australian Open a much needed boost and Nine would be hoping this is the point the tournament starts gaining momentum. The match seemed to build an audience as it went later into the night. His next match will probably be even bigger.

Yes that would be why but I don’t mind as it’s a few hours of Tennis so it makes it easier to see how it performed what it’s up against. Do we know what the exact timings for the splits are?

CHannel 9 provided a big boost in ratings thanks to Nick Kyrgios playing last night. I think With Two female aussies playing tonight, it will give an increase in ratings.

Nine spitting the night session into 2 session is ridiculous. They are trying to get us to buy into looking at the ratings for a single game rather than a session, then when one game fills the full session, they split it into two numbers. The first session goes up to 9pm with the second to 11pm.

The average audience for the game was 690,000.

It would be interesting to see the coverage broken down by set, i.e.:
2021 AUSTRALIAN OPEN D3 - NIGHT KYR v HUM SET1
2021 AUSTRALIAN OPEN D3 - NIGHT KYR v HUM SET2
2021 AUSTRALIAN OPEN D3 - NIGHT KYR v HUM SET3

From TVTonight:

Nine coded the tennis into 4 segments last night, which is not dissimilar to how Seven used to structure its AO : 7pm pre match / 7:15pm night / 9pm night session 2 / 10:30pm late.

Just as ridiculous is SBS split coding its World News bulletin into two sessions: 6.30pm and 7pm, when their numbers are already low. Last night, the 7pm half had less viewers than the 6.30pm half.

Regional aggregated markets had Prime/7QLD with another win on primary and network channel share last night over Southern Cross Nine.

Seven easily have the number 1 affiliation content supply.

Makes more sense for the tennis to be split up. For Monday night ratings, where they weren’t split up, too many people who don’t get that the tennis ratings were over many hours when they were saying the tennis was beaten by other shows for Ash Barty.

Aside from the pre-match bit, those codings make no sense at all considering the Kyrgios match went through all three segments. I can understand if Nine coded the Kyrgios match (in its entirety) separately so you know how the match did. However, pretending that an individual program is actually 2, 3, even 4 separate programs not only to manipulate the ratings table but to combat negative headlines is ridiculous.

Frankly, the practice should be prohibited (aside from very few exceptions). However, the networks aren’t going to stop a rort they all participate in when it suits them.

It’s a day match

Barty and Gavrilova have already played, unfortunately for nine.

Hopefully both Barty and Kyrgios will play night matches going forward.
