HDTV Ratings: June 14
After a slow start, Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms has kick-started its ratings.
Wednesday’s episode three was the highest rating yet, averaging 8.8%-10.4% of the major demographics compared to 6.5%-7.8% the previous week.
However, the better numbers didn’t rev up HD lead-out Breakout Kings.
It averaged 5.4%-7.5% compared to the 6.5%-7.8% for the previous week’s episode, which guest starred Prison Break’s Robert Knepper.
Even so, it out-rated TV One’s HD rival Castle, which averaged 3.5%-6.6%, in every key demo except 25-54.
Another TV3 series, The GC, had an exceptionally strong night with household shoppers and 18-39 year-olds.
It averaged 15.5% of HHS, compared to 2 Broke Girls’ 14.2%, and 12.3% of 18-39 (vs 2 Broke Girls’ 10.9%). And in the other key demos, it trailed by only 2-3 points.
Meanwhile, Big Bang was down a couple of points in all demos except 25-54 while Shortland Street again reigned supreme, averaging 16.5%-20.4%.
