Why are you and tarflyonthewall so determined to belittle this season's performance at every single opportunity on a forum all about TAR?  :didimiss:

Just reporting facts. Maybe if this wasn't rating so terribly the commentary on its performance might be better idk?

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.

Overnight metro data is a subset of the whole data.

That's. How. Data. Works.

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
