Andy Lee’s The Hundred premieres to 484,000 metro viewers

Former Editor & Content Director

Andy Lee’s latest TV project, The Hundred, premiered on Channel 9 last night to 484,000 metro viewers.

With the addition of regional viewers, the show had a total audience of 683,000.

Its lead-in show, The Block, in the primetime 7:30pm slot, had 634,000 metro viewers and a total of 880,000.

The Hundred fared better with younger demographics. While it placed 16th overall for the evening, it was 6th in people aged 16 to 39 in the cities, behind Australian Survivor, The Voice, The Block, Nine News 6:30pm and The Project’s second half hour at 7pm. The Hundred was 9th in 25 to 54s in the five metro markets.

The show is billed as a “reverse Gogglebox” featuring comedians and a panel of 100 everyday Australians.

The 100 panellists stand by, live, to be polled on their views and experiences with the hottest news and topics of the week, while the comedians and celebrities will battle it out to prove who really knows Australia best.

The show aims to take the pulse of the nation on topics such as: How many Australians have had sex in the workplace? What’s the most common day to be born and to die? How many Australians have had plastic surgery? And how many have checked their partner’s phone?

Lee said the show is laugh-out-loud funny.

Thought this show was great fun – Andy was completely in his element and makes a great host for this format. Really draws on his experience talking to every day people, just like in radio/podcast world. Hoping it goes great!

Can someone please inform me as to why this news about a TV show on Channel 9 is being reported on the Radio Today website ?

I know Andy Lee has had a successful career or radio and podcasting as one half of the famous “Hamish and Andy” duo…but this is suppose to be a website where you can read information about radio stations, programs and people who work in the radio industry and related audio industries like podcasting.

If I wanted to know the viewing audience numbers for “The Hundred” and/or other info about that show, I will go the website.
