It was Oprah’s night – again – with a MasterChef-esque 1.638 million to take the night conclusively. Even with that huge effort, and a pretty good follow up from The Good Wife, it wasn’t quite enough for Channel 10 to win the night (although they did win the 7:30pm to 10:30pm primetime slot for all demographics) over Channel 7, with Channel 9 third in consolidated network shares (i.e. Ch10+One+Eleven). Channel Ten did win the primary off the back of these two strong shows plus good numbers for Law and Order:SVU. It certainly looks like Sunrise is back to full strength also, with it’s decisive win at breakfast across all 5 metro markets. The changes to the Today Show coming on Monday may only be subtle, however they may be indicative of what is to come as the grab for our attention first thing of a morning gets more interesting.
The battle for everyone’s attention at 6pm is also proving to be interesting as Ch9 won SYD, MEL & BNE for their News service, but significant numbers from ADL & PER for Ch7 we enough to push their News bulletin into second place. Go figure, huh. The 7pm Project is now starting to deliver strong ratings strong in the 800’s again – if this will remain the case will be seen as the official ratings period for 2011 kicks off this Sunday. Bring it on!
Melbourne clearly loves it’s Neighbours, helping it to another big win for the digital multi ratings. GO! very clearly owned the night, with Eleven in a close second place – but surprisingly both 7Two and 7mate which have previously rated quite well aren’t performing as they used to. Maybe it’s Eleven that’s taken their audience? It’s only week 2 and all the digital multi-channels apart from Eleven are yet to start airing new/exclusive content. That will make a world of difference to the ratings picture in 2011.
