I found an old SMH article from 1991, which looked at TV ratings across the Southern NSW/ACT aggregated market, which takes in Canberra, Wollongong & Orange/Dubbo/Wagga regions. At the time, aggregation had occurred across Southern NSW & the ACT two years earlier.

During the first 4-week survey of that year, across Southern NSW, Prime won the ratings with 30.9%, with WIN coming in 2nd with 24.8%, Capital (now SC Ten) 3rd with 22.5%, then ABC with 12.7% & SBS with 1.8%.

In the Orange/Dubbo/Wagga region, Prime scored a whopping 51.9%, while Capital scored only 19.6%. WIN's ratings were not mentioned for that market on the article.
In the Wollongong region, WIN was #1 with 32.9%, followed by Prime with 20.1%, Capital with 14.9%, ABC with 13.7% & SBS with 2%. And in Canberra, Capital was #1 with 37.9%, followed by WIN with 22.8%, Prime with 22%, ABC with 14.2% & SBS with 3.1%.

20 years on, I would think that Prime7 (as it's now known) would still be dominating in the Orange/Dubbo/Wagga region, likewise for WIN in the Wollongong region. However, in Canberra, WIN have since become the #1 station, especially after Ten Capital had dumped its local news service, and has since been regularly beaten by the ABC, who have its own Canberra news bulletin.

CSI would struggle to get that many viewers nationally in 2012.

Seven doing bad in those days in Melbourne. Obviously not having the AFL was the difference.

The downfall of DOND from its peak popularity is very apparant. Roughly the same combined audience these days, but with Nine winning with Hot Seat. Disturbing such a dumb, repetitive game show used to get almost 1m.

2004 was Sevens worst performing year since Oztam began. Very close to been the 3rd Network that year.

That probably had something to do with the embarrassingly bad 2004 that Seven had anyway. People in most market just weren't watching Seven in general and they had no content for a good portion of the year and were routinely beaten by Ten, etc.

Great thread. Have we run out of old figures?

Lucky for Seven, 2005 was gold. Lost and Desperate Housewives.

Ten need something like that for this year.

Here's something I just stumbled upon this evening.

 

Summary of ratings results for the Queensland aggregated market (broken down to sub-markets) for the 5.30-7.30 timeslot.

 

It was Survey 1, 1991 -- the first survey immediately following aggregation so not surprisingly we see Sunshine (Seven) a clear #1 in its heritage markets of Mackay and Bundaberg (Wide Bay/Maryborough), while WIN is leading in Rockhampton but not by as much in Toowoomba.  At 7.00pm it looks like QTV (Neighbours) and ABC (ABC News) equal first in Toowoomba.

 

And QTV is streets ahead in its heritage markets of Cairns and Townsville despite the late change to a Ten Network schedule.

 

Interesting to see also ABC News at 7pm rating higher in the north QLD markets in comparison to the southern markets.
