    Noticed AFL rating in the top ten programmes on Saturday night again! This is occuring unfettered and unchallenged on free to air tv. Rugby league on Pay tv only is not sufficient. The free kick continues for AFL Australia wide on free to air tv.

    Pretty sure the AFL numbers includes pets and dead people though.

    Is that good relative to other nights though? Nobody watches TV on Saturday night.

    Agree. However the AFL are getting the free to air exposure and rugby league isn't. A simulcast game would do wonders for the wandering eyes (particularly younger ones) on a Saturday afternoon or evening. It matters. Granted the numbers are not great but it's still a head start on rugby league over the weekend FTA coverage statistics.

    So if I am not home but recording on the IQ a game I watch later, is that counted?

    I know OzTAM produces what they call "consolidated 7" ratings which factor in re-watches of FTA programming within a week of broadcast (see https://tvtonight.com.au/category/timeshifted), but not sure if that applies to Subscription TV

    State election may have affected the 7:30 Saturday game.

    Think the Friday 5.30pm crowds have so far been higher than the Sunday 6pm crowds? Weather has played a part but going on raw crowd statistics Friday 5.30pm is drawing better than Sunday 6pm crowd wise. Can't be refuted really?

    Not keeping a spreadsheet myself - happy for you to. All of the figures there are from MediaWeek Australia and cross-checked on TV Tonight where possible as well.

    Not doing an AFL comparison, certainly not in that article but happy for others to follow up in here if they want

    I wonder what the Friday 7.30 game would draw on fox.

    The point of the early Friday game is obviously to steal viewers from 9 later. If the NRL could show that they would get the same result anyway, they might convince them to move it

    You can actually...

    Looking at the home teams used, it was easy to predict which would get the bigger crowds.

    Who has Fox and watches ch9 by choice? Channel 9 is for the casual fan those who can't afford fox.

    There is no competition between Fox and 9. So I don't see how it would rate any less than Thurs night
