The Newcastle Ratings, week ending August 29
Note: These ratings results are compiled using the combined resources of SC TEN, NBN & Prime’s weekly AGB Nielsen Media Research reports.
This week the ratings have done a turn around in Primes favour. Not for first place in the ratings game. No, every week that goes to NBN without fail at this stage and so it seems ABC is catching up and getting comfortable in second place. But, this week Prime has beaten SC TEN to secure third place is this Newcastle ratings race!
This is evident in the Top Ten Most Watched Programs for the week. Although Prime only has two shows that even make the list, with their numbers (percentage of viewer’s) just scraping in to make the cut, averaging around 80%. SC TEN’s top programs aren’t even in the same genre of percent, its highest rater ‘Rush’ misses out with an average 78%.
