Seven takes the hat trick -again

By David Knox on March 6, 2011 / Filed Under News 23

For the third week in a row the Seven Network has won the hat trick: topping network, primary and digital channel wins, key demos, all nights and all cities.

It is now four out of four weekly wins in survey ratings.

Seven again stole the lion’s share of the top ten shows, with 8 of the top shows, including the first 7 places.

Aside from News and Current Affairs, Seven had 7 shows over 1m viewers: Packed to the Rafters, My Kitchen Rules, Better Homes and Gardens, Bones, Border Security, The Force and Criminal Minds but Nine only had one: This is Your Life. TEN had NCIS, The Biggest Loser, Modern Family and Bondi Rescue over the million mark while ABC had New Tricks and Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple.

    How does Parliament House Question time rate. I know its 2-3pm, but how does it go in timeslot?

  2. salf March 7, 2011 at 12:13 pm -

    usually a one-horse race is bad for the industry, but in this case i think it is good because its keeping 9&ten honest. I think if all 7 were struggling the same way 9&ten are everyone would just think “oh well, digital channels, internet, changing environments, what can you do?” but the fact that 7 can do it means that any excuse 9 or ten come up with is just that, an excuse, and they can do better if they actually tried. Fortunatley it is local content that separates 7 so hopefully the others get the hint and the industry will flourish.

  3. Douglas Quaid March 7, 2011 at 10:53 am -

    Seven are really impressive at the moment. Nine looks disorganized and everytime that I think TEN can really give the other two a run for their money, they still are stuck in that third position.

  4. Jake March 7, 2011 at 8:46 am -

    Naturally Channel 7 came first again….after all they do have all the best shows!!

  5. Sammy March 6, 2011 at 10:58 pm -

    And 8 out of the top 10 shows on 7…. Wow..!!

    And the first 7 on 7 . !!

  6. Jezza March 6, 2011 at 10:50 pm -

    Yeah I am begining to think that overall audience numbers are similar, but are being spread across all the channels. The big question will be :- is how much are advertisers willing to pay for the same numbers on all these channels..

  7. Ja'mie March 6, 2011 at 6:20 pm -

    Nine and Ten are having a woeful start to the year. Simply a non contest with Seven ripping the competition apart.

  8. ryan March 6, 2011 at 6:12 pm -

    finally 11 has a half good movie on tonight, lets only hope they play every alien movie on the sundays to come.

    Switch Better Homes and Gardens back to a Tuesday night at 7.30pm and when Packed to the Rafters is on at 8.30, it will be a massive ratings boost for Seven. This will enable Friday Night Football to be shown live in all states.

  14. Nicky Santoro March 6, 2011 at 4:00 pm -

    Put a positive spin on those figures, channel 9.

  15. ohyeah March 6, 2011 at 3:37 pm -

    give it a couple more months and that gap will reduce…. & is having a lucky run at the moment.
    the only highlight for nine is GO!

  16. IMO March 6, 2011 at 2:59 pm -

    The Amazing Race 17 debuted last year at 797,000 in its Thursday night timeslot coming in at #12 on the night and at #59 for the week. TAR 18 only managed 278,000 for its premiere on 7mate last Sunday evening. It was heavily advertised that it was on the digital channel so can’t blame ignorance, but it will be interesting to see if numbers pick up or whether the ratings value of the show is being wasted by moving it from its primetime slot on the main channel, or whether 7 is just happy to have it top the digital channels for the night, where it came in at #29 and didn’t even make the top 100 for the week.

  17. Arthur March 6, 2011 at 2:45 pm -

    Take out Melbourne’s figure and 60 Minutes starts looking pretty bad. And who said 7pm Project is going well…No.68 for a prime time show! Hurry up Ch 10, move your news to 6pm -7pm and have Negus at 7pm.

  18. Tristan March 6, 2011 at 1:43 pm -

    In the glory days of Desperate Housewives (2005-2006), it used to frequently have over 2 million viewers on a Monday 8:30pm timeslot!

  19. Cooky March 6, 2011 at 1:12 pm -

    Gee, the margin (in total network) between Seven and Nine was over 5 points this week! Can’t deny there is trend occurring now after four weekly loses of a similar margin.

    If KP still owned Nine, I am sure heads would have rolled by now.

    It will be interesting to see what programming changes (if any) are made to arrest this trend.

  20. philm March 6, 2011 at 1:05 pm -

    @Jezza: I am not sure of the total trends, but looking at Mon 8:30 across all commercial channels the total numbers of viewers comes to roughly: 3,726,000.

    I am not sure how that compares but I would say seven would be happy anyway. For them on Mon 8:30 last week…

    Bones: 1,080,000

    This is not good news for Nine with the likes of Top Gear not performing, no more Underbelly until later in the year, not that it was making ratings history with the TV movies. Do they have anything for the rest of the year to lift their numbers?

    This is a crushing indictment on Nine’s programming and management. What are they going to do about it? This is what every Monday morning is going to look like for the foreseeable future at Nine. Have the crisis meetings started? Doesn’t seem like anyone at Nine seems to think there’s a problem which is a big part of it.

    Q.1 Now we have digital channels, is the overall audience (ie the total number of people watching TV) number up or down?

    Q.2. Any U.S. ratings anywhere?

    cheers
