Ratings: Paul Henry slow to rise

After its sixth week, The Paul Henry Show has lifted it’s average audience by 9% on the previous week to 45,096 viewers per day between 7am and 9am. Monday’s show delivered the second highest average audience between those key hours since the show began. Meanwhile, Friday saw 6am-7am deliver an average audience that wasn’t only the highest the show has seen in that timeslot but the third highest rating block the show has had since its inception.


Breakfast also had a good week with a 3% gain. The average audience per day was 136,929 viewers which was boosted by Friday’s impressive numbers which jumped to close to 200,000 between 7am and 9am.

    Do we know how the PHS is doing on Radio Live and/or online? I suspect a lot of JAFAs probably listen to him in the car, rather than on tv.

      We don’t know this until October, which is annoying. MediaWorks isn’t releasing any radio/streaming data on the show (which I am sure they have) either.

      As I said on a previous thread, by looking at the listener numbers in Auckland, there should be at least 50-70k listening on the radio, add this to the TV numbers and the show would rate over 100k!
