ARIAs soft as ratings year winds down
Ratings: It was tops with younger viewers, but the ARIAs were down on their 2014 performance.
It was #1 on Twitter and in the 16-39 demos but last night’s ARIA Awards didn’t set the ratings on fire, with 461,000 across its nearly 3 hr broadcast and just 406,000 for the Red Carpet.
Last year against the Big Brother finale the show drew 602,000 for the Red Carpet and 574,000 for the Awards.
Thursday was another low-rating night, with all shows under a million viewers.
7:30‘s interview with Malcolm Turnbull won its timeslot, as did A Current Affair before it.
Seven won the night with Home and Away its best in entertainment.
Seven network share was 31.6% then Nine 25.7%, TEN 20.4%, ABC 16.4% and SBS 6.0%.
Seven News (933,000 / 899,000) topped the night for Seven then Home and Away (670,000), Inside the Queen Mary 2 (642,000), Surveillance Oz: Dashcam (623,000), The Chase (532,000 / 637,000) and Mighty Cruise Ships (448,000). The Amazing Race was 118,000.
