Nine’s Live Friday Night Football Nine 687,000 449,000 *** 238,000 *** ***

Nine’s Friday Night Football Nine 237,000 147,000 *** 90,000 *** ***

I knew there was a better way to do this. Shame tables don't work.

What I want to know is why the double up on Friday Night NRL?

Friday nights see an NRL double header played live from 7:30pm with the second game delayed from 9:30pm. The live and delayed games are mostly alternate games in NSW and QLD depending on who is playing (and example Friday night would be: Brisbane Broncos vs South Sydney live in QLD and Parramatta vs Cantebury live in NSW with the games switched in the respective markets from 9:30pm).

As you can see in the figures above, there is a massive drop off in viewers for the delayed game.

Bear in mind also that the AFL broadcast goes for more than 3 hours and is most of the time not live, yet still rates better over that period than 2 NRL games where Channel 9 picks the fixtures 6 weeks in advance (often resulting in clashes involving top of the table teams).

Again as you can see, massive viewer numbers for the AFL involving a team from regional Victoria and a team from Western Australia. Figures will be even bigger next season with all games expected to be going live.

Yep, and still fails to beat one game (often delayed) of AFL.


"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

our 687K has to have the regionals added
that was 430K for last week for a national audience of 1.117 Million
we just missed the top 40 shows with 1.145 mill being the cut off

http://www.thinktv.com.au/SiteMedia/w3s ... 8_2011.pdf

the AFL's Friday night telecast didn't make the top 40 shows for last week overall either , even with 873K in metro ratings
( the largest its been for weeks .. have a ganda at the week befores numbers 8-[ )
meaning regional veiwer numbers for the AFL last Friday night were less then 272K . :shock: .. how much less its hard to say .. AFL club ratings almost never make it into the top 40 programs ..while the NRL does at least once every two weeks :wink:

If the regionals were added for the AFL as well, Raider, you'd be in for a major shock.

Lowest was 329K, not 272K.

Besides, that's just FTA.

yes .. :roll: &

the overall cut off for the top 40 FTA TV last week was 1.145 Million & the AFL didn't make the list

the AFL got 873K in the Metro ratings , that we know
so
whats 1.145 mill minus 873K ?

oh let me see .... 272K :? :roll:
if the AFL didn't make the top 40.. their regional ratings had to be less then 272K
how much less .. who knows , probably lots :wink:
