Ratings – 29/03/12

Where did all the people go? Thursday night a very unusual ghost town now that MKR is gone. Seven News (1st – 1,133,000) led the charge but head and shoulders above Today Tonight (2nd – 987,000) and all other comers. With Seven’s AFL: Thursday Night Football (9th – 665,000) kicking off it causes all sorts of flow on issues: BHG aired Wed night to underwhelming results, but to get the full picture you’d have to include Friday’s results for NSW/Qld; and Home and Away (11th – 645,000) didn’t air in SA/WA and usually rates 950K-1m. Talk about messy. That said, the AFL still won from 7:30pm against all comers. On 7mate (NSW/Qld only), the AFL drew 91,000 viewers. Excess Baggage finished it’s run on GO! with 95,000 for the grand finale episode.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: ABC News – ABC1
7:30pm: Seven’s AFL: Thursday Night Football – Ch7
8:30pm: Seven’s AFL: Thursday Night Football – Ch7
9:30pm: Seven’s AFL: Thursday Night Football – Ch7

Channel 7 won the night (22.1%), followed by Channel 9 (17.3%), Channel 10 (15.2%) & ABC1 (10.9%).

I like TV. Have done since I was plonked down in front of Sesame Street & Play School as a kid in the 70's when we only had two channels. Now we have over 20 free to air channels. Keep up, people. You can contact me here or tweet me at: @MolksTVTalk
