Ratings | 9Network enjoys best ever start to the year

9Network enjoys best ever start to the year – Television viewing on the 9Network in 2024 has seen significant growth. The number of people watching our big brands has increased across breakfast, afternoons and primetime, while BVOD numbers are soaring to record highs.

This audience surge has given the 9Network its best ever start to the year with all key demographics and Total People.

Australia’s biggest show just got bigger, with Married at First Sight growing the number of people watching by 3.1% year-on-year to record a Total TV audience of 2.074 million. Meanwhile its BVOD audience on 9Now stands at 714,000 viewers per episode, up an incredible 16.2% on last year. National Cumulative Reach stands at an extraordinary 12.141 million viewers. 

Australia’s new favourite afternoon game show Tipping Point has redefined the 5pm timeslot, growing the audience 47.8% year-on-year for a National Total TV audience of 601,000 and a National Cumulative Reach of 7.022 million.

That audience has cascaded into our national news audiences with 7.6% more people watching 9News year-on-year (National Total TV audience 1.036 million) including an incredible increase in viewers on 9Now of 63.2% since last year (National BVOD audience 63,000 per episode).

The number of Australians watching our other key shows has followed suit with significant growth year-on-year for A Current Affair (up 6.5%), Today (up 5.7%) and The Hundred with Andy Lee (up 13.8%). 

And with 12.9 million viewers tuning into Nine’s coverage of the Australian Open, sports fans are in for a treat when Paris 2024 airs later this year.

Michael Healy, Nine’s Director of Television, said:

“These results vindicate the commitment from the team at Nine and our partners to deliver content Australians want to watch in greater numbers. Married at First Sight is more than a television program. With more than two million Australians watching every episode, it is a cultural phenomenon. We’re also blown away by the performance of Tipping Point, which has boosted the audience for our 5pm timeslot by almost 50%. Together with audience growth for 9News, 60 Minutes, A Current Affair, Today and The Hundred, free-to-air television is thriving.”
