2019 ratings: the final word

OzTAM has sent through the final ratings results for 2019.

These tables include 28 Day Consolidated numbers, the last tally of ratings for the year. Most are dominated by Sport.

The AFL Grand Final still topped the year at 2,219,000 viewers. Married at First Sight led the Reality TV field at 2,110,o00 for its finale.

But there are some interesting finds in the Timeshifted figures with Bluey rising by a whopping 275+%. SBS titles The Handmaid’s Tale, The Hunting and Years & Years were huge.

In Subscription TV Bathurst topped the year at 484,000 national viewers.

Mr. Inbetween is a remarkable success in Timeshifting up by nearly 3000%. Chernobyl and Movie: The Incredibles were also up by 1000 – 2,500%.

15 Comments:

  1. So the consolidated figures are Oztam Overnights + time shifted but don’t include streaming?
    Once they include streaming there will be massive differences and streaming is a win.

    For commercial FTA, +28s aren’t a win, they represent the steady decline in revenue over the last decade. A Foxtel subscription comes with an IQ so obviously most subscribers are going to series link and record their favourite shows.I haven’t watched anything but sport live on Foxtel for decades. It has crippled Foxtel’s advertising though that was only 20% of their revenue.

  2. how sad for the nrl when there g/f is beaten by meaningless made for tv origin series, wouldnt they want the showcase Grand Final to be the must viewed

    • Try telling League fans in NSW and QLD that the state of Origin in meaningless. It’s more important than internationals, The World Cup and every other game, unless your side is playing in the GF. Parochialism and closer games explain why Origin rates 10% more.

  3. Excellent report there david.
    Ashes did exceptionally well on 9GEM. Even 9GEM beat Nine on one night!
    In regards with Ninja WArrior Winner announced and TMS final reveal, which had the most preliminary nos?

    • While clearly not an incorrect comment, that would be detracting from 9’s good work in picking up an extra 2% network share.

      Actually, I think 10’s “fall” is just as bad as 7’s in a sense since they were working from a much lower base, yet dropped in both main channel (-0.7) & total network (-0.3) share. As Aussiecam suggested, they’re lucky they had Bold do well.

  4. Interesting list and great to see SBS rise significantly for some of their shows. This list demonstrates that Aussies do watch dramas but in their own time.

    And go Bluey…my daughters are responsible for playing episodes over and over and over again….
