This Time Next Year‘s 764,000 was down on last week’s 800,000 but enough to beat Have You Been Paying Attention?, Four Corners and a Diana 7 Days special, suggesting viewers are now over them.

OzTAM Overnights: Monday 28 August 2017


    • NITV has long argued the bulk of its audience is not in the 5 city metro. Many regional areas not included in RegionalTAM either. You can guess why the big guys don’t want to see that change.

      • Absolutely I can. And I would think that advertising revenue would be a major factor in why the big guns don’t want to see multi channels do a whole lot better than they do.
        It’s been a long running concern for me – SBS has a dedicated food channel (which rates ~1%) yet all first run local food related content runs on the main channel. Why have a special channel if you aren’t going to direct viewers there with attractive programming?
        I’m a food nut (chef) and I tire of yet another repeat of the five episodes of Mystery Diners they seem to own.

        • I love the Food Channel too but I do hate Mystery Diners.
          It’s mean and unrelated to food other than the action takes place in a building where food is made and eaten.

  1. Despite an easy lead in main channel share, Seven’s multi-channels are on a roll this year (especially recent months), only 1% overall was in it last night between them and Nine!

  2. This is a genuine question: I wonder if 9 care about the state of their multi-channels? My guess is that they are concentrating on getting their main channel entrenched as (near) #1 first and then they will focus on the multi-channels come 2018.

    • Agree. We were watching [something??] on 9Go and the pop ups for “Same Time Next Year” were huge. By fat the biggest I’ve ever seen. I thought – they’re just using these multi channels to put out cheap product as a platform to promote their main channel……
