Rafters Returns


I have to confess I’m a huge fan of the Rafter family…. And I’m not alone!

A massive 1.874m Aussies tuned in nationally to the series return of Packed to the Rafters last night on the Seven Network. This was marginally down on the 08 launch of 1.945m however it is currently the 2nd highest rating regular program YTD behind Seven’s Sunday News*.

Average audiences were up almost 8% YOY in Perth however Melbourne, Brisbane & Adelaide were down marginally on 08. Rafter’s was clearly the number one program of the evening and helped Seven take 34.5% share of the free to air audience.

Packed to the Rafters currently has over 16,000 members on a facebook page with fan’s yesterday posting countdown messages to the series return.

The Rafters obviously have a loyal following however I will be interested to see how the 1.874m stacks up compared to the series two launch of Underbelly next Monday night on the Nine Network ….another favorite of mine!

Stay tuned….

*Ratings exclude Aus Open Tennis and Twenty/20 Cricket.
