Seven dominates Australian TV in 2014
In a year of major events, Seven continues to dominate the broadcast television landscape. Seven is the most-watched network on primary channels and combined audiences of primary and digital channels.
This is Seven’s eighth consecutive year of market leadership in primetime.
Building on this leadership in primetime, Seven is number 1 in breakfast television for the eleventh consecutive year and number 1 in morning television for the eighth consecutive year.
Seven dominates the most-watched events – with My Kitchen Rules the most-watched primetime event on television in 2014 and AFL on Seven: The Grand Final the most-watched sports event.
Two new projects for Seven have also underpinned the network’s performance in 2014: INXS: Never Tear Us Apart and The Killing Field.
Driven by My Kitchen Rules, House Rules and The X Factor, Seven dominates the most-watched series on television with 5 of the top 10, 8 of the top 20 and 16 of the top 40 programmes. A Place To Call Home and Downton Abbey dominated Sunday nights.
Seven’s Director of Programming Angus Ross, said: “Seven is all about consistency and trust. With the right mix of Australian-made programming, live sport and the best of international programming, Seven is number one for the eighth year in a row. You can’t get much more consistent than that. We also continue to acknowledge the leadership of Sunrise and The Morning Show across breakfast and morning television.”
Seven’s Director of Production Brad Lyons, said “We’ve made more local shows this year than ever before and the audiences have demonstrated they love it. My Kitchen Rules is the number one programme of the year and House Rules continues to build as the biggest new franchise. Our success with INXS and The Killing Field, the continuing delivery of Better Homes and Gardens and the massive inroads we have delivered at 5.30pm with Million Dollar Minute coupled with Home and Away’s extraordinary performance at 7:00pm underline our 2014. We’re looking forward to 2015.”
