ARIA Awards dip to new low in TV ratings, failing to even beat last year’s event streamed on YouTube


It’s supposed to be one of the biggest award shows in the country, but viewers pretty much rejected the ARIAs.

Overnight ratings showed that more people watched Channel Seven’s Home and Away than the awards ceremony.

Considered Australia’s version of the Grammy Awards, the ARIA used to hold a big place with the public, but that sentiment has dipped in recent years.

ARIAs have not aired free-to-air since 2020. That year, the broadcast had a national viewership of 287,000 – which was their lowest broadcast event.

Unfortunately, this year’s ratings were even lower.

After Tracy Grimshaw’s latest episode of A Current Affair, it was expected that the awards show could accommodate a large audience.

This was not the case.

The ACA drew 554,000 domestic viewers, while the ARIAs drew 243,000.

That’s a massive drop of more than half the audience who tuned in to A Current Affair, and even more than the 287,000 who tuned in to last year’s ceremony broadcast on YouTube.
