7 News Sydney enjoying the Olympics hangover? Nine won’t be happy this morning.

2 Likes

Just like their radio, their Sydney news dominance is waning…

Today and Sunrise very competitive yesterday. Seems to be a trend of some sorts that Today performs well in August and September but otherwise lag behind Sunrise at other times throughout the year.

RFDS dropping would be disappointing but understandable because it’s so boring and sad.

Nine’s afternoon line-up outrating Seven’s Paralympics and news.

At breakfast it was the closest result of the year with Sunrise just 4,500 ahead of Today in the metro markets. Today’s result was its second highest of the year and was 50,000 ahead of News Breakfast. Sunrise beat Today in Sydney by 15k but in Melbourne Today was 25k ahead of third placed Sunrise while In Brisbane Today was almost 20k clear of Sunrise.

The 8.30pm episode of Bull just managed to outrate Bluey.

At this rate in ratings, I think it means bye bye Bachelor.

I think they will try a high profile person next season and if that fails… :axe:

The issue for Nine is while they do well at 3pm & 4pm, Hot Seat doesn’t benefit from that. Ideally, they would want to not just maintain but grow their audience all afternoon until the 6pm news and then into ACA and primetime programming.

It highlights that both Seven and Nine have different things they need to address when it comes to their afternoon schedules

Remembering that Hot Seat is at 3pm in Perth and 4pm in Adelaide.

Good to know MS members sometimes think alike :wink: I was having deja vu, like reading my own comment back! This is what I commented in yesterday’s thread this morning:

If I saw your post, I wouldn’t have made my post - didn’t mean to repeat the same point you made yesterday

Nurses did average numbers for Seven at 7.30, while Nine’s Paramedics did better in the 8.40pm slot. How did Ambulance Australia get on Ten when it aired? Any better than the two?

RFDS, although a timeslot winner (just), should be getting better numbers. Not many Australian Dramas get good numbers these days.

Then again, the Paralympics on 7mate did well, making some numbers across the other channels go down a little.

Not that I watch it and I do think it’s a tired format… but the highest rating seasons are the known people on this show.

Maybe they rest it for 2022 and relaunch 2023.

Knoxy on TVT in his 10 analysis this morning:

“Bull continues to let down the team at [redacted due to MS-OzTam restrictions] / [redacted] -dead last in its slot” :flushed:

No no, I was smiling, it’s good to see more than one member with the same view and to share that, not often it happens tbh :slight_smile:

And while Hot Seat and ACA win in Brisbane, of late 7News has been very competitive in between… a good sign.

I reckon The Bachelor/ette should just be axed anyway.

…although I think Nine would be concerned that their 5pm and 7pm programs have been losing ground in their two most important markets.

Does there need to be a new 5pm program? More upmarket content on ACA? Meatier Special Reports or a major viewer competition on Nine News in Sydney & Melbourne?
