Scripted Drama is still ranking as the biggest drawcard for Timeshifting in 2018.
Seven’s The Good Doctor is the most Timeshifted title so far this year at 369,000 extra viewers in the 28 days following its season return on January 30th. That boosted it from 1.01m Overnight to a Consolidated audience of 1.38m viewers.
It was well ahead of the next best performer, ABC’s Squinters, which drew an extra 239,000 viewers in 28 Day viewing, followed by Underbelly: Chopper (210,000) and Gogglebox (193,000).
Reality shows My Kitchen Rules and Married at First Sight are still prominent in the list, albeit eclipsed by scripted titles. Most people tend to watch these “Live” to participate in the conversation.
The numbers are a reminder that more of us are indulging in Timeshifted viewing and that Overnight numbers are always preliminary.
In the top 200 titles there are no sport or news titles, again all Live drawcards, but there are more niche titles including The Ghan, Berlin Station, Blue Bloods, Hard Sun, Wisdom of the Crowd and Endeavour: The Young Morse.
Here are the top ranking brands for the 5 Free to Air networks, based on 28 day Timeshifting in 2018.
