According to the latest Roy Morgan Single Source data, the Nine Network’s Big Bang Theory, the Seven Network’s Packed to the Rafters and Nine’s David Attenborough’s Documentaries are the top three most loved programs on Australian television.
The ‘most loved’ television programs are based on those programs about which the highest number of Australians aged 14+ years agreed that they “really love this program” during the 12-month period January-December 2011.

Top 10 Most Loved Television Programs (000’s)

Source: Roy Morgan Single Source, January-December 2011 (n = 18,935).

The Nine Network has a total of four programs in the top 10, including two programs that are favourites among male audiences, Top Gear and Two and a Half Men. The Seven Network, Network 10 and the ABC each have two entries in the top 10.

The fourth most-loved program, ABC’s Spicks & Specks, had its final series in 2011, although in 2012 the ABC has been running nightly repeats of its most-loved program. SBS has no entries in the top 10 most-loved programs; in fact the most loved program on SBS, Mythbusters, is ranked in 41st position.

George Pesutto, Industry Director – Media, Roy Morgan Research says:
“As the TV networks roll out their new program formats post-Easter, we’re seeing that some of Australia’s most loved TV programs will be making a welcome return to the small screen.

“Many Australians will no doubt be happy to see new episodes of their much-loved favourites like ‘Big Bang Theory’ and ‘Packed to the Rafters’ back on-air, along with the newest series of ‘MasterChef Australia’ that’s due to kick off soon.”
