June 2011 TV Ratings (SABC and ETV)


Not much has changed since May in terms of viewerships. June still shows the same trends that we have seen in the past months. However SABC 3 seems to have increased it viewership. Soapies still rule our screens as for the most part they have been the highest rated shows across all channels that are available off of the DSTV and TopTv service.

While SABC 1 still reigns supreme in general, afterall it is the only channel (except for DSTV ) that is available almost everywhere in this country, SABC 3 is showing some steady positive change in the numbers with Isidingo gaining a small number. Unfortunately the numbers are still not enough to bring the soapie to the Top 5. I guess the hype around the Sibekos is just not working.

The Bold and The Beautiful which will soon be moving from SABC 1 to SABC 3 is giving our local soapies  run for their money. The American soapie which now feature own very own Terry Pheto has been in the top 5 for quiet some time now. Another consistent contender for the Top 5 spot is Rhythm City, though nowhere near the top spot holder's 7 million viewership, the show has been the darling of Etv.

Of course shows that you would think are popular like the show that made Bonang Matheba a superstar continue to perform badly. Live is yet to attract more viewers than Pasella. The Afrikaans show seems to have hit the jackpot by introducing English subtitles because it been doing well even beating Club 808 and Mzansi Insider on some weeks. Mzansi Insider is a bot of an unpredictable show, it keps creeping in and out of the Top 5 Magazine Shows and now that the Twins are gone we'll have to wait and see if Minnie Dlamini manages to keep the show's rating solid.

Poor Selimathunzi, again it shows dismal ratings while redundant shows like Jika-Jika continue to enjoy solid numbers. The show still fails to attract a million viewers. Noeleen's 3Talk is another show that is suprisingly in the same boat. The show has yet to see numbers above 700 000 let alone a million in the past months.

In general it appears that South Africans do not really like watching television. Out of about 50 million citizens only a fraction of that watch tv. Our highest rated show is yet to hit the 10 million mark.

In terms of Top 10 Shows Across All Channels not much changed over the course of the month either.
