    1. The worst so called HD on FTA ,it goes to show that most people have no idea or don’t really care what proper full HD is meant to look like and this ain’t it.

  1. Huge numbers for the AFL. The NRL must be in the foetal position. The Storm Panthers game was billed as the likely Grand Final for the last 5 months and it’s ratings are a shocker National wide and in Sydney. The AFL GF almost out rated the NRL in Sydney…. With the NRL broadcast rights up for grabs, what value do you place in them now?

    1. It’s ratings were 1.7 million Australia wide which are actually terrific for a qualifying final. I suggest you check the overall ratings across all platforms before making a comparison between a grand final only on fta and a qualifying final on fta and stv.

      1. I did, the NRL ratings were very poor, reflects the constant rule changes, poor refereeing and poor behaviour of players I think. Considering Sydney and Melbourne are in lockdown too

        1. Sorry Ann but collectively throughout this final series the nrl numbers are up by nearly 2 million viewers from last year.
          The football itself has been terrific.

  2. Hi Yes those numbers are huge and I am sure that those are the numbers every year it is just that so many fans from Melbourne usually go to hotels, bars and restaurants to watch and celebrate the grand final and those figures are never included in the ratings

  3. Holy F***! Seven’s share. Is that the highest % ever?
    Plus 3 mil audience for AFL GF – surely highest rated program this year.

    Poor Ten – that’s all.

  4. Those numbers are absolutely huge 😳 All the more reason to continue the push for a night grand final. The game looks so much better under lights. No shadows to worry about.

  5. Mind boggling. Such huge numbers for the AFL Grand Final. Over 3 million viewers is amazing . The pre-game and post-game segments are huge too.

    This would be a great time for a rare Saturday Ratings report….. to see the low numbers against the Grand Final.

    1. I am going to go out on a limb here and forecast this is week number 19 for seven (incl Olympics) … a 40 point difference just eeeks them over.

    2. Will be interesting to compare next week’s NRL final numbers with this weekend’s AFL.
      The large number of goals kicked last night (31) translated to more than 25 30-second ad breaks watched by 3 million eyeballs (5 cap cities only). Seven network will be very happy.
      I’m looking forward to 2022. Go Dees!

      1. It will be a like for like comparrison – 2 Sydney teams in NRL, 2 Melbourne teams in AFL, both in prime time, although no conflicting sports for NRL, although don’t think the Rugby made much of a dent.

          1. I wasn’t contributing to the code war as you were, as noted, earlier.
            Just highlighting that it’s quite rare to have both GF consisting of teams from Melb. or Syd. The last time this happened was in 2010. I have no idea what the figures for NRL GF will be, but it will be the first time in 10 years where there won’t be ‘interstate’ teams playing and the first time ever they have both been in prime time (although I’m not sure on that fact)
