I thought there might be an increased interest in the demo performance of all these news bulletins so I’ve temporarily extended the 25-54 list.

With all the increased news coverage, ABC was with biggest improver in network shares with ABC News the top multichannel. The loss of AFL and NRL saw Seven and Nine lose share while 10 had its 7th consecutive weekly improvement year-on-year. 10Bold posted its 60th consecutive week of year-on-year audience growth.

ABC News channel topped multichannels for the week, thanks to its round-the-clock coverage of coronavirus outbreak.
Finally some decent VPM ratings for My Kitchen Rules.

Hanging out for this? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Hardly decent numbers…

7, 9, ABC, ABC News and Sky News have all seen huge ratings spikes thanks to news.

And 10?

Zero reaction…

They could be adding news content right now which is the cheapest type of original content to add and be seeing increased viewership.

Even under 55s news consumption is up massively. And 10 does nothing

10 brought forward Studio 10 to 8am weekdays and added a Sunday 6pm news bulletin to provide additional coverage and strengthen their news coverage so it’s not really fair to say they’ve done nothing.

Of course more could be done, but in such uncertain times around work conditions, employment, advertising market etc is it really feasible for now to be the time for them to be launching new programs which would involve weeks (if not months) of planning and additional hiring.

I think not.

@killy06

Studio 10 being bumped forward is not adding to primetime viewership. And yes they did add 30 mins of news on Sunday - which is what many of us have been calling for for years.

But 9, 7, dozens of local stations in the US and I presume networks all over the world are adding hours and hours of additional news content. 10 aint so special.

Adding a 930 news does not take weeks or months of planning.

If you cant react in a time of news demand, what’s the point.

Haven’t they extended studio 10? They haven’t bumped it if they have moved it forward and given it extra time is it?
