No one has made this yet, so I'll be reporting it here.

Sevenís brash news mini-golf extravaganza Holey Moley has launched to 983,000 metro viewers on Monday, in a heated TV war.

It beat out Nineís Married at First Sight: Grand Reunion on 781,000 and the return of The Amazing Race Australia on 501,000.

10ís heavily promoted reality race was fourth in its slot behind ABCís 7:30 (577,000) and Four Corners (576,000).

Sevenís new mini-golf show, produced by Eureka, also topped the demos and helped Seven to a 29.7% win. Nine followed at 28.5% then 10 17.9%, ABC 16.7% and SBS 7.2%.

Seven News topped the night at 1.04m.

2021 survey officially begins this Sunday.

OzTAM Overnights: Monday 1 February 2021

This is not good news at all, however, offical ratings donít start until Sunday February 7, so hopefully ratings will approve from Leg 4 onwards.

Down to 493,000 for episode two.

Basically the only good news is if you start at rock bottom it's very difficult to go down by much.

Holey Moley dipped in its second outing but still won the coveted 7:30 slot.

Sevenís mini-golf drew 737,000 metro viewers and topped the demos, down from its 983,000 debut. In Perth, where a lockdown is underway, it doubled the competition.

Nineís Travel Guides followed with 641,000 with The Amazing Race Australia down slightly to 493,000 but ahead of 7:30 (472,000) and Foreign Correspondent (359,000).

The Good Doctor led later at 415,000, defeating a Who Wants to Be a Millionaire special (337,000) then Designing a Legacy (322,000).

Seven News topped the night at 991,000.

OzTAM Overnights: Tuesday 2 February 2021.

I suppose the only positive outta this, is that the offical ratings havenít actually started yet, but we seriously need to pick up our game if we wanna see a Season 6

Let's hope the second week of episodes improve. It starts on a new night next week, Sunday, and won't air on Wednesday at all. I think by the end of the next set of episodes, we'll know for sure the way this season is heading towards, ratings wise.

I'd probably say though that if we start going below 400K, so starting at anything 399K and below, we should be very concerned (if you aren't concerned already); that's at a level where the show could actually be pulled from broadcast.

I am not expert on ratings but should we really consider amount of viewers to be that important? I understand these numbers you are posting are ALL viewers who watched the show which means also kids and old people who are not demographic advertisers looking for.

https://tvtonight.com.au/2021/02/wednesday-3-february-2021.html

Check this site. Episode 3 was tied for 1st in 18-49 demographic and 2nd in 16-39 democraphic overnight. I mean TV is dying and numbers are getting lower and lower each year... We should consider overall rank of the show in the key demographics, imo. Which is not that bad?

If it goes below 400k, it'll get pulled from Primetime. It was *15th* last night, and fourth in its timeslot (by about 100,000 in the big cities, and about 200k over the country). It's not like the US where it lives and dies on the demo - in pretty much every other country in the world, viewers is what matters, and for whatever reason viewers don't like TARAU.

The return of Tom Gleesonís Hard Quiz has caused headaches for commercial reality shows.

Hard Quiz won its slot at 622,000 viewers, leading the entertainment pack.

Travel Guides was next at 600,000, leaving Holey Moley to fall to 543,000 and The Amazing Race Australia at 447,000. While Holey Moley copped a substantial slide from its Monday debut, it still emerged a winner in the demos.

A return by The Weekly with Charlie Pickering also led after 8:30 at 577,000 (notwithstanding reality shows wrapping) followed by the debut of Aftertaste was 479,000.

Seven still led in shares at 27.8% then Nine 25.2%, ABC 19.8%, 10 19.6% and SBS 7.7%.

Yeah. The thing is Holey Moley's ratings might be down 40%, but it's still doing significantly higher than TAR, aaaaand the people who are jumping ship from HM very decidedly aren't switching to TAR. And two nights out of three it's finished fourth in a ratings system with three major networks. Like, given the amount of money they've spent on this show and the prestige they're clearly tried to get, this is a bit like the US version of Dancing with the Stars getting its ass handed to it by a show on PBS. These numbers are a NIGHTMARE for Channel Ten, and it's not just this show it affects: these numbers are going to affect both The Cube (premiering Feb 24) and Masterchef (taking TAR's timeslots after it finishes), because nobody's here to see the promos. And to make matters even worse, it's up against the Australian Open tennis the next few weeks. It's going to get SLAUGHTERED.

It's also rating remarkably well outside the big cities. HM added 340k yesterday (as opposed to 160k for TAR).

Yeah, also keep in mind that if the show isn't the best for Americans it's probably dead boring for Australians.

As Americans, we're not familiar with the places they're visiting, it's all new to us. For Australians, most of them likely are.

Really it's kind of like Australian's family edition of the amazing race.

Really it's kind of like Australian's family edition of the amazing race.

The Gold Coast is certainly a place everyone knows (it's the largest city that's not a state capital, and it hosted the last Commonwealth Games) and Longreach is reasonably known (it's where Qantas was founded) and the Daintree Rainforest is known in general, but I wouldn't call Mossman or Winton known locations. But then the problem is that Beau's all "What could be more Australian?" and... exactly, dude. Most country towns and many suburbs have a pub pretty much exactly like that. A show about travel isn't exciting when they're doing things you could do within a short walk of your own house. A race around Australia could have worked really well, but instead of selling the things that make the country so diverse they've gone for "what would a foreigner visiting this place for the first time, as their only experience with anything Australian, take away from their visit?"

Also they're selling this as "the toughest race ever" which is a bad approach at the best of times (previous seasons to claim it: Asia 3, US15, US16), but... like, imagine if that's what sold you on watching and then you got stuck watching an episode containing such difficult tasks as putting your hands into shoes, finding a clue on a billboard in an area with exactly one billboard, and riding a waterslide.

How has the late start impacted on the Australian Open audiences?

Night 1 of play -now out of school holidays- averaged 486,000 metro viewers for Nine, down on 2020ís first night of 634,000.

The Amazing Race Australia won its slot at 558,000 viewers then 7:30 (533,000), Holey Moley (528,000) and Australian Story (443,000).

Seven network won Monday with 28.7% then Nine 26.2%, 10 19.9%, ABC 18.2% and SBS 7.1%.

Seven News was #1 at 1.05m / 1.04m viewers with Home & Away as the top entertainment show on 587,000. The Chase drew 536,000 / 420,000 and The Rookie was 189,000. Earlier the Super Bowl attracted 279,000 rising to 319,000 for the Half Time Show.

Nine News was best for Nine at 879,000 / 846,000.

The Project pulled 522,000 / 296,000 for 10. 10 News First was 371,000 / 249,000 with a repeat of The Graham Norton Show at just 129,000.

Except it didn't. The figures for the tennis are an average for the entire broadcast, which didn't end until almost midnight. For the specific match that was against this, Nine got 605k viewers.

I'd also point out that Holey Moley is consistently picking up ~150-200k more viewers outside the main state capitals than this is, so there's a very real chance this "win" is actually yet another third place that's only appearing as such because of the vagaries of the Australian ratings system.

National figures for the 7:30pm timeslot yesterday:

Australian Open: 868,000 (539,000 metro)
Holey Moley: 768,000 (469,000 metro)
This: 712,000 (510,000 metro)

Also, the seven-day metro figures (that include streaming) are out for last Monday:

Holey Moley: 1,101,000
This: 596,000

Add in that HM has been consistently pulling 300k or more outside the major cities and this... has not... and that's an absolute disaster for this show. Like you're probably looking at 1.4-1.5 million versus 700-750k, even without regional streaming figures.

What facts? If you read all the articles and figures being posted here, you'd see it's being reported that the show is quite consistent in ratings and has now been winning its timeslot.

How is that not good enough performance? Stop manipulating the data to fit your narrative.

It's less about manipulating the data and more about reporting the whole facts.

The fact of the matter is that TARAU is - at best - winning the 5-City Metro scores by razor thin margins (it's won 2/6 so far, and only Tuesday was by more than 3,000) and then getting absolutely annihilated on the nationwide scores. I could sit here and pretend like TARAU is doing well, but on a ratings thread you need cold hard numbers, and the numbers are low for this show. Despite having an improvement this week, it's still very much on life support - its episode on Sunday got beat by a repeat of a home improvement programme.

And even the two nights it appears to have "won" are only because Nine isn't splitting its five-hour long Australian Open coverage up since they don't know when matches are going to end (though, because the three main commercial networks co-own the ratings measurement company, they still get the figures and announce them separately).

Like mjharmstone said, at best this is just barely eking out second place (and being misreported as a "win" because the tennis qualifies as "sport" rather than "entertainment") and at worst it's finishing a distant fourth. And that's even without considering the regional and streaming ratings, both of which are very much not in favour of this show.

So... which facts specifically are you disagreeing with?

I don't think Ten has any expectation for this to beat the tennis, particularly as it begins to ramp up towards the finals in the coming weeks. Beating Holey Moley this week will be considered a win for Ten.

But to say this show is on life support when we're winning key demos and five city metros is a really negative outlook. It could be better sure, but across the board numbers at the moment aren't great. I wouldn't say we're on the brink of cancellation at this point, we're doing steady. I'm not sure why you're so focused on the regional and national numbers when none of the TV blogs do; it's not clear why you think they're so important.

You're both clearly focused on a subset of the data, which do what you want... but don't be surprised people here disagree with such a negative outlook given what's come out over the past few days.

There is literally a post on TVTonight from yesterday saying that they're switching to National ratings this year - of course it matters. https://tvtonight.com.au/2021/02/would-networks-prefer-national-ratings-over-metro.html

I think Ten would have been disappointed at it barely topping 500k on the premiere (down 11% from last season's premiere) and even more disappointed that despite their protestations it would catch up on streaming and +7 (a claim actually put to me by Beau Ryan himself), it only gained 95,000 and was nearly half of Holey Moley on the same night - and that doesn't even include the national figures, of which we know HM beat it by ~200k.

To claim I'm "clearly focused on a subset of the data" is ludicrous when I can say the same thing - you're focused on the five-city metro, when Australia is moving to a model that encompasses the whole country. These figures are absolutely being monitored by the network and it's nuts to say they're not.

That insight helps, thanks for sharing. But from that same article:

Quote
Daniel Monaghan, 10 Director of Programming
Network 10 is five metro stations so we talk about that number first and foremost

Not sure that aligns so well from what you heard from Beau.

I'm not gonna continue anymore because i don't think we're gonna agree, but will be interesting to see how it plays out in the coming weeks  :)x

"Ten focuses on a number that makes them look marginally more competent" and "Beau Ryan thinks giving people the option to catch up is going to improve ratings" are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

I don't think Ten is surprised at all that this season's numbers are slightly lower than last. They're only travelling around Australia. Ratings will go back up when they revisit the world, and Ten knows that.

I'm sure ratings data will have a say, but I am inclined to say yes. This is an extremely unusual season for a whole host of reasons, chief among them being the pandemic, but I will be shocked if the network ends up pulling the plug for TAR Australia just because this season didn't get great ratings.

The fact that this season was able to be successfully filmed in the first place is quite a remarkable feat, and I personally think they should be congratulated. Sure, they weren't able to go to India or Brazil like they planned, but production put together a race that was able to be filmed safely, and which ended up being aired on television. That is a job well done in my book.

Should this season end up being a flop, I think it will be clear that Pandemic FilmingTM will be to blame, rather than the race itself. At worst, Ten will probably just wait until everything gets under control before they can do a full international route.

The season hasn't been falling in the ratings so far, but the next couple episodes will be telling what viewers really think of the whole stowaway situation.

The stowaways might actually be really good for this due to how they are kinda famous. If you check their insta stories multiple other major aflw stars are posting about them on the race and this could lead to more viewers. So they could help boost the ratings even though itís completely unfair that they joined.

Because I was bored, a visual representation of this season's overnight 5-City Metro ratings, both against other shows in the 7:30pm timeslot and against previous seasons of this show. (The yellow line in the timeslot graph and the purple line in the TAR graph are this season; my software didn't want to cooperate and give them the same colour.)

Things worth noting:
(1) These figures exclude both streaming and regional figures so aren't quite accurate, but by all accounts both (especially the regional figures) aren't helping the show enough to change the results in any significant way.

(2) Because not every show airs for 90 minutes, I've used the figures for whichever shows were on Seven, Nine, and the ABC between 7:30pm and 8:00pm on each night, with the more accurate figures for the first two nights of the Australian Open taken from Nine's PR announcements (that none of the other networks who had access to the figures corrected, so which are presumably correct) rather than the averaged all-night figure used in the regular ratings reports for those nights.

(3) Yes, ratings for Holey Moley have dropped quite significantly. But more importantly, those people who ditched it haven't started watching this - this show didn't drop nearly as much the first couple of nights, but aside from this overtaking that from Episode 5 onwards, both shows' ratings have been rising and falling basically in parallel.

(4) This Sunday, where TAR won the timeslot by 34k, was the lowest-rated evening of commercial television of the year so far, even with this show's usual biggest audience (Melbourne) in lockdown.

(5) 7 out of 9 episodes so far are the lowest-rated episodes at the corresponding points in a TAR Australia season ever. Yes, it would be easy to blame that on the rise of streaming etc, except the Seven-era episodes generally aired in a later timeslot, with the premiere and both double episodes of Australia vs New Zealand in particular not finishing until after 11:00pm.

(6) Aside from the Australia vs New Zealand finale, which in addition to the later timeslot aired opposite a preview show for Australia's equivalent of the Superbowl, the four lowest-rated episodes in this show's history are all from this season.

It looks like the average ratings per week has been increasing though? (480,000 to 536,000 to 554,000) Even if the viewers being hemorrhaged from Holey Moley aren't going here they're getting new viewership somehow, which is interesting since TARAus having such a sporadic filming and production schedule and organization hurts it from a brand perspective (compared to a version like TARCan which has retained a vast majority of their initial viewership and I imagine a subconscious part of that is because it's constantly billed "Canada's Favorite Summertime Adventure" regardless of how true it is
