From today TV Tonight resumes ratings data in keeping with new OzTAM publishing requirements.
This will see a number of changes including:
– new layout
– Network / Channel shares
– Top 20 Free to Air programmes*
– Top 20 Multichannel programmes*
– Top 20 Subscription TV programmes*
– Top 5 in Demos 16-39, 18-49, 25-54*
* Overnight data
As the amount of data per day is now more complex each post will be for a single day only, instead of the former style which was one post per week.
I will be taking note of comments regarding the new-look format to see what fine-tuning can be incorporated, including for Archival purposes. As I find many people are reticent towards change, I would suggest everyone trials things for a while. This is a work in progress for us all…
For shows that rate below the Top 20 (i.e. anything on SBS) look for ratings editorials which have long been part of TV Tonight. But remember, I don’t always file these everyday nor detail every show.
I’m sure most readers are familiar with the recent changes to websites reporting OzTAM data, but I have always been of the view that TV Tonight offers much more than just Overnight ratings -including breaking major stories during the recent non-publication period.
I appreciate your patience during this time, guys.
