    Coronation street fans have reason to be happy, even with demos counted TVNZ wouldnt want figures that low for the timeslot.

  • Notre Damne

    I agree. With Masterchef AUS failing to improve in viewership figures significantly, it’s just a matter of time before Coronation Street’s scheduled timeslot is reversed.

    This action taken by TVNZ has drastically disintegrated their entire primetime line-up.

  • elaliotv

    shame on you TVNZ!!!! you shouldnt take your viewers for granted!!!! long may materchef suffer until coronation street is returned to primetime. I would also like to know when Throng will begin to publish the ratings for the 18-49 demographic and the 25-54 demo that Tvone says is more important,so that we get a clear idea of how well or badly masterchef is performiong after the timeslot change. Lets all continue to boycott masterchef!!!!!!

  • tvtv

    Masterchef AU’s demo numbers last night was flop-worthy. Their 18-49 numbers were 2.6 rating/8% share. TV2 performed much better with Police Ten 7 (10.8/34.3) and Motorway Patrol (10.1/29.4). The first hour of X Factor got 8.2 (no info for first hour share, but the whole 2-hour got 9.6/27.5). A REPEAT of Family Guy even beat Masterchef AU (2.6 vs 2.2). 

    TV1′s coveted 25-54 demo is nothing good either. Masterchef AU got 3.6/9.8. TV2′s Police Ten 7 got 11.7/32.9 and Motorway Patrol got 11.9/30.6. TV3′s X Factor got 8.6. 24 Hours in A&E BUILT on Masterchef AU’s audience with 5.2/12.8. 

  • tvtv

    Bonus blow to Masterchef AU. Prime’s Mythbusters did better than Masterchef AU in 18-49 (2.7/8.3 vs 2.6/8.0). Mythbusters is closely behind Masterchef AU with 25-54 (3.2/8.5 vs 3.6/9.8). 

  • reece_555

    Someone at TVNZ will be in trouble for the idea.

    Do you have access on what Coronation Street last week got in the demos?

  • Notre Damne

    And also, since you have access to the 18-49 and 25-54 demos, could you please include them in the TV Ratings posts? A suggestion on how to set it out can be found here:

    A table is basic HTML, and once you had the template, you could easily display much more ratings information than you do currently. Then we would be able to make informed predictions/comparisons.

  • M Sainsbury’s mo

    Put Coronation Street back to its rightful place.

  • i don’t want to enter a name

    Oh for god’s sake screw coro st, it’s so old and tired. I am so sick of that awful damn opening theme tune, it’s like a funeral march! TVNZ needed to move it because it’s audience are old and just about dead. Why don’t you Coro st fighters put your energy into something more constructive like saving TVNZ7…. actually I wish TVNZ had moved Coro St there so it could go down with it next year.

  • David Finch

    “I don’t want to enter a name”….So rude. And arrogant. And ignorant.  It is far from true that Coronation Street’s audience are all old and almost dead. But even if you were right… so what? Are you really saying that older people have no right to watch programmes they enjoy???  Two hours a week is too much?  The shift of timeslot for Coro St and the demise of TVNZ7 both stem from the same ultra-commercial broadcasting policy – ratings at all cost, and no respect or consideration for older or minority audiences.  The Coro fans and TVNZ7 campaigners are really fighting the same fight, even if they don’t all see it that way. 

  • i don’t want to enter a name

    So fight the true fight and get the govt to give us a true public broadcaster that serves OUR needs and not bound by commercial obligations and being competitive, until then TVNZ is just a company that we the shareholders should shake money out of (through dividends to the govt.) and the only way to do that is to make the money-spending people (household shoppers and 18-55 yo’s) watch it by using the right shows to attract them…. and Coro ain’t it…. My advice to Coro watchers is to get a Tivo.

  • noname

    @ I dont want to enter a name… you have a public broadcaster that does not worry about viewing figures or commercial interests… its called maori TV
