They didn’t have Timeshifting in the trenches
What low ratings? Local Dramas are pulling bumper numbers in Timeshifted viewing.
Yet we are already seeing big numbers in what people are viewing in Timeshifted numbers.
The second episode of House of Hancock leads the local Dramas with 260,000 extra viewers. As a comparison, that would sit at #4 if it was embedded into the 2014 top Timeshifted shows.
Gallipoli, Winter and The Doctor Blake Mysteries have also pulled big crowds but this kind of data rarely gets reported.
Here are the results for local Dramas since the first week of 2015 ratings:
House of Hancock Part 2: 260,000
Gallipoli (Ep 1: I) 238,000
Gallipoli (Ep 1: II) 200,000
House of Hancock Part 1 179,000
The Doctor Blake Mysteries: 169,000
Home and Away*: 72,000
* average of weekly episodes.
