Top 50 titles on free-to-air television, 2008–2015

Next update February 2017


Programs listed include the overall top-rating titles on free-to-air television across all networks and genres. In the three years from 2008 to 2010, all of the top 50 programs were Australian. Despite several foreign titles (highlighted) accounting for 16 per cent of the top 50 programs in 2011 and 14 per cent in 2012, Australian titles once again dominated the list for 2013. Only one foreign title made the list in 2015.

In 2008, 18 per cent of the top 50 titles were drama while 48 per cent were sport and 34 per cent news and current affairs. There were no titles in the light entertainment category. By 2014, light entertainment and reality titles accounted for 62 per cent of the top 50, followed by sports (32 per cent), drama (4 per cent) and news/current affairs (2 per cent).

2015 was once again dominated by programming from the commercial networks, with Channel 7 accounting for 58 per cent of titles. Episodes of My Kitchen Rules (7), The Voice (9) and The Block (9) alone accounted for more than 50 per cent of the top rating programs.

Foreign titles are highlighted and in bold.
