While Reality TV, News and Sport sucks us in with Live viewing, increasingly we are watching our favourite Dramas in our own time, removed from the distraction of ads and late starts.
Consolidated, or Timeshifted, numbers register the shows we watch for up to 7 days after their initial broadcast by those in the OzTAM survey panel.
From May 11 – 17, Drama and Comedy titles made up 19 of the top 20 Timeshifted titles including The Blacklist, A Place to Call Home, Revenge, Resurrection, The Mentalist, The Good Wife, Offspring, Call the Midwife, NCIS and Death in Paradise.
The Voice was the only non-scripted show to make the top 20.
But what are the shows that nobody is Timeshifting? There are plenty of them.
Amongst 1622 titles, 883 of them -more than half- attracted a complete 0 in Consolidated numbers.
Another 169 attracted an increase of a negligible 1,000 viewers.
All networks had shows that failed to attract extra viewers, but with 168 hours of content across multiple channels, including repeats, that’s not necessarily surprising.
Here is a snapshot of some of the Primary channel shows* that nobody is Timeshifting:
