Yeah the fair weather NSW people didn't get a chance to turn off this year so the figures should be big.

MMM just mentioned the OZTAM's (5 city) initial figures - 2.6 million+ average...

That was between VW Golf/pink poofs ads... made my ears bleed. Apparently they want people to go to Moore Park and sing "cheer, cheer" whatever the f**k that is...

Surely they have the wrong game? Those figures must be for that "AFL legends" game that had every single one of us buzzing.

All stations pack Wednesday nights now,

SOO got 30% more than Masterchef and AGT combined.

1 in 5 Australians have their eyes glued fo 2 hours of the game, plus it keeps nearly as much for the post match.

I think the ARLC got some more ammo to negotiate a TV deal with.

State Of Origin decider top ratings

Holly Byrnes

THE bruising State Of Origin decider has produced a knockout blow in the TV ratings - setting a new record as the highest rating game in OzTam history.

Channel 9's league showcase hit a stunning peak of 4.825 million nationally (five city metro and regional), averaging 4.041 million viewers.

The five-city average of 2.68 million viewers (growing to a peak of 3.236m) set a record both for the match and the 2012 series, which was up 10.42 per cent across the three close encounters

Not surprisingly the game scored in Sydney and Brisbane, but also pulled its biggest ever audience in AFL-dominated Melbourne.

The blockbuster figures are also a win for the NRL, which is currently negotiating a new broadcasting rights deal, with some consideration being given to selling off State Of Origin as a seperate product to the weekly national competition.

Media analyst Steve Allen noted a slight drop in Brisbane audience numbers, putting the shift down to locals crowding pubs and clubs to watch the game (where OzTam cannot measure the viewer reach).

Low to mid 3M or thereabouts is the highest for a Calvinball Grand Final I think. Could be wrong.
