OzTAM Overnights: Sunday 14 September 2014


  1. Emurray- spot on. Finals footy obviously will attract extra viewers but if you compare this figure to a big matchup during season it’s well over double.
    Given that channel 9 want to lead into the news, just have the game kickoff at 4pm. This then means it doesn’t clash with the 2pm game. Having games played simultaneously when there are enough time slots is crazy.

  2. There was a story in telegraph last week about drop in viewers watching league. Nine wake up and listen .. People want to watch live footy and the figures from both Saturday night and yesterday afternoon prove this .. Yes it’s finals .. But nine would be better served by a live 330 game every Sunday
