The Newcastle TV Ratings, week ending October 03
Note: These ratings results are compiled using the combined resources of SC TEN, NBN & Prime’s weekly AGB Nielsen Media Research reports.
Prime’s Packed To The Rafters took out first place in the Most Watched Programs for last week. As the footy finals were being played on the Sunday (thus being included in next weeks ratings), Prime’s favourite family snuck past to take the lead. Although it wasn’t enough to beat NBN, this did help Prime increase it’s rating numbers to jump up into 22.7%, rather than in the teens it has been sitting in lately.
As happy as many folk are that Hey Hey Reunion is back on, making 3rd place on the most watched list, it didn’t help NBN “that much” to increase it’s weekly viewing numbers. NBN’s ratings dropped 4.3% compared to the previous footy dominated week.
Once again, just by a fraction, ABC took out 3rd place for last weeks ratings beating SC TEN by 0.3%. Ten must be concerned that Celebrity Masterchef and Australian Idol aren’t doing the business for them.
