Grand Final TV Rating

Post by Fred »

So which was Australia's most watched Grand Final? Anyone have the stats - would be interesting to know. Also how Lions went in Brisbane on TV (and devices I guess).

The AFL got the best ratings, the best Grand final entertainment and the biggest crowd. Yes AFL wins!

Any figures Steve? So Australia's most popular game's marquee event, in prime time, was watched by less people in this country than the AFL grand Final? surely you kid?

It was very close in Australia. Fumbling 3.75m v NRL 3.52m. When the NZ numbers are known the NRL will have a big victory. And before the feeble fumble fans here have their usual dummy spit about NZ ratings - the NRL has a team in NZ. It is 100% applicable to add NZ numbers in for the NRL competition.

Now cue the fumblers going off like 2 year old squealing babies whose mamma's have just thrown their lollypop outta the cot lololololololol!!!!! Prove me wrong fumblers.

Damn you Steve

Seems pretty close in the battle of rating here in Australia - with AFL having a narrow win by a few hundred thousand or so Many people would have watched both I am sure. Both great games.

And if we want to know who won the battle of Oceania we can add in NZ numbers and possible South Pacific - where there is a strong following of NRL (having spent some time in Aitutaki and Rarotonga I can vouch for this) may even be more even.

In all, a great weekend of sport with something for everyone - got to love a close game no matter the sport. As a Pies supporter it was magic indeed.

Can I just be the Elephant in the room here & ask where Liebomber has gone!!?

I am guessing it is because the AFL has beaten the NRL in ratings for the GF which he said would not happen.

I would hide also liebomber

Perhaps someone is just trying to raise the standard?
There are lies, damn lies and then there are ratings.
