2017 TV: the final word

OzTAM has released final data for the 2017 TV year, following the final tally of 28 Day Timeshifted viewing.

There is little change from previously-published numbers with Seven still winning the year in Total People and the AFL Grand Final as the biggest audience of the year.

There was slight improvement in share for TEN and SBS, while Seven, Nine and ABC took minor dips.

The Good Doctor was the year’s biggest Timeshifted show, collecting a whopping 368,000 extra viewers.

Note that the share encompasses the Calendar year from Jan 1 – December 31, so the Australian Open enters the Top 20 titles.

Game of Thrones topped the year in Pay TV viewing.

  1. OzTAM have a small problem with their timeshifted numbers 76,000,000 for The Good Doctor? Numeric pedants unite!
    The FTA Consolidated 28’s should raise a few eyebrows particularly when more viewers are watching a recording than live. The high timeshifted 28’s for Pay-TV are to be expected when the provider includes a recording device as part of the package.

  2. The Good Doctor the undisputed Number 1 show on TV at the moment (and outside of Ninja Warrior), averaging nearly 1.5m (5 city) in 28 Day Consolidated!

    Despite a resurgent year from Nine, Seven retain bragging rights with Top 3 programs and Top Multi-Channel program, their production of Richmond v GWS prelim final also Number 3 subscription on Fox Footy.

    Bachelorette huge for Ten, in an otherwise ordinary year outside summer.

    Seven extend their lead in shares, with 28 Day Consolidated (was just 0.1% in primary overnight splitting Nine).

    • The shares reported above are for the full calendar year. Across the ratings survey year, Nine finishes with a Consolidated 28 share of 19.8% to 20.0% for Seven.
