TV Ratings

With an average viewership of around 912,000 per game, including an FTA average of 512,000 and a Fox Grp average of 474,000 - the Broncos are by far the most watched team of either the NRL or AFL by quite the margin.

2-4th most watched teams in 2022 were AFL sides. The Western Bulldogs (780k with a 406k/343k split), Pies (765k - 445k/384k) and Tigers (756k - 481k/345k). Souths and Panthers only other teams averaging over 700k per game.

NRL clubs have the top 5 average FTA viewerships - although some are based on very limited games. Broncos (512k), Seagles, Souths, Melbourne and Panthers. Richmond the top drawing AFL club average on FTA with 481k.

9 Melbourne AFL clubs rate better on Seven in Melbourne, than any Sydney or Brisbane club in their respective cities. (Geelong is a Melbourne club for ratings purposes). These clubs averaged 240k on FTA in Melbourne alone. Sydney based clubs average 162,000 per game on Nine.

The Swans average 55,000 viewers in Sydney this year. The Lions average 44,000 in Brisbane. The Storm average 29,000 in Melbourne (from limited matches - all on GEM), and GWS average 27,000 in Sydney.

On Fox set top boxes and Fox Group ratings, 14 NRL clubs outrate the top AFL club, with the Broncos leading the way at 256k, while Collingwood is the only AFL club with a set top average over 200k.

Broncos, Eels, Storm, Tigers and Panthers make up the top 5 for the NRL, while the Pies, Blues, Cats, Tigers and Bulldogs are the top 5 AFL clubs on Fox.

no graphs for TV ratings are permitted by orders of Oztam. Sorry, theres some very pretty graphs too lol.

TV ratings data is sourced from Oztam/Regtam, Total tv and consolidated tv reports. Kayo and Fox group data is estimated from media reporting, thanks primarily to @TV_Blackbox Unfortunately I cannot link the data used.
