WTF. NBL games can get those sorts of numbers. Doesn't seem accurate.

Sadly NBL games "average" a lot less unfortunately

The top rated ones i.e. finals do. I would've thought this would easily eclipse that range for Team USA playing in Australia. I assume Thursday rated a lot higher.

So more people watched in the stadium than on TV...

The ratings system is so flawed.

The rating system is flawed, and I can't really trust it. In saying that, not too surprised at the low number (As usual). How many adverts were there promoting the TV coverage? I didn't notice much. On Facebook, how many times do you read comments from people constantly asking if the game is on TV and on which channel. And these are basketball fans. The TV coverage just doesn't get enough promoting to educate fans when to tune in and to what channel.

I can imagine Thursday night's game probably got better ratings but a lot of people didn't even know that there was a second game at all and plenty didn't even know these games were on TV.

Being a Saturday afternoon I'm sure a lot of casuals glanced at the TV guide saw no footy was going to be on 7 yesterday arvo and made plans to go out or did stuff like gardening etc. Then you factor in SBS being the least watched network of the five FTA networks and the games not even being on the main SBS channel and it doesn't surprise me at all.

No one watches SBS. Many people thought game 2 was Saturday night

Do they track views on SBS on Demand? Haven't been able to watch either game at broadcast time. Watched it the day after online.

So because the numbers aren't as high as you expected, the system is flawed? Ok then.

I honestly forgot the Saturday game was an afternoon game. I was thinking it was on at 7:30pm until I channel surfed into it.

I honestly thought that game was @ 7pm Saturday.

There was a full replay on YouTube. I ended up watching it like that.

I also assumed the second game was Saturday night and ended up seeing the result on Twitter that afternoon while out for the day.

(The first game I didn't realise was on FTA until half-time.)

Well the ineffective communication on tipoff time makes sense then re: low ratings.

Yep. It would also help if the broadcast details were highlighted in the game preview writeup in the papers to let the casual observer know about it also, let alone hoops fans who might already be aware (or not so much in this case)

Not sure about other newspapers but the West Australian didn't advise of broadcast details.

If you don't think the tv ratinga system is ridiculously flawed you're not even trying use your brain.

It would be like holding an election and just calling 1000 people's landlines and claiming they speak for the entire nation. Those that bother to answer anyway.

Re awareness of broadcast times, last Thursday The Roar published this in their Game 1 preview:

"Match 1 of the series will start at 7:30pm (AEST) on Thursday, August 22.

This two-game series will be the final tune-ups before the teams head to China, with Game 2 set down for Sunday"


So 2 days out from Game 2 they were saying it was on the wrong day. Either they were given the wrong date or they made the error all by themselves.

Great example. The classic Labor to win the election at $1.06 (implied chance of 94%) based on an outdated polling method. Yet Nielsen or whatever it is now isn't scrutinised like Newspoll.

@Perthworld its clear that pools mean nothing any longer after the great victories of Trump, Morrison, Brexit as they use methods of data gathering form the 1980's and allow those inside the organisations to frame the questions in a way that suits there leftist agenda.

Big fan here and I missed the game. Strangely enough, while the game was on I was in the backyard playing basketball with the kids and we were talking about watching the game that night.

It was only by chance I saw a news article later that afternoon celebrating the Boomers unexpected win that I realised it was an afternoon game.
