The Newcastle TV Ratings, week ending September 19
Note: These ratings results are compiled using the combined resources of SC TEN, NBN & Prime’s weekly AGB Nielsen Media Research reports.
Newcastle seems to go through trends. When something is on that we like, we go all out and watch it, just it! We are interested right now in what’s on in the News (NBN being that), every day of the week and Footy Finals (once again NBN). We like to watch renovations and also day dream of getaways (once again all NBN).
We do occasionally like watching animals being saved and funny disfunctional families (Prime), but that seems to be it. No one else seems to want to cross over into other programs or featured sports on TV just at this stage. We like a routine and it seems so does the ratings, with NBN once again taking out the winning spot with an average of 37.1% viewing audience. This week though Prime managed to defeat ABC.
