You can’t breathe in the media industry without someone saying how viewers consume content has changed, and the metro rating figures for the ARIAs show this better than much else.
A total of 238,000 metro viewers signed up to watch the ARIAs last night, which was down on last year and the year before. This is a significant drop of five years ago when the awards show would regularly bring in 500,000 metro viewers.
Still, it didn’t stop Nine from taking a win for the night: it had an audience share of 32.2 per cent, beating Seven’s 26.1 per cent, Network 10’s 16.4 per cent, the ABC’s 17.7 per cent and SBS’s 7.6 per cent.
Seven’s The Chase won the entertainment crown with 465,000 metro viewers, whilst Home and Away pulled in 431,000 metro views.
The ABC’s Hard Quiz pulled in 390,000 metro views.
