3pm – Data release for 29 July

Tomorrow (Friday, July 31st):
Return to normal delivery schedule (9am data release for 30 July)

We extend our thanks for your patience while Nielsen worked through the issues of the past week.


  1. 10, and now Seven, are all about skewing to younger audiences, but then both networks currently air Dancing with Stars and now Farmer Wants A Wife respectively. In particular, Dancing on 10 confuses me as this skewed older when it was on Seven

  2. Seems Seven’s relative ratings recovery at/during start of second half of 2020 continues. ‘Big Brother’, despite many thinking the format had been flogged to death actually did a decent job – and particularly in the demos – and early signs are ‘Farmer…’ doing solid job despite it being an ‘old’ format too. AFL doing great numbers and showing that as a national proposition it remains significantly ahead of NRL in delivering the numbers when looked at pan-Australia (whatever you personally think of either code as a sporting spectacle). Sunrise (clearly) and Seven News (slightly less so) still clear no.1s in key slots when viewed across the country which provide strong platform for building the rest of the day-to-day schedule.
