Entertainment and Scripted Series: successful genres to perform worldwide

Entertainment and Scripted Series are successful genres to perform worldwide. Entertainment programmes are boosting prime-time performance but also are helping private channels to reach their commercial target. We also noticed that local scripted series and national productions are overconsumed and performed very well in their countries. You can read more about that on the “What’s new” part of our newsletter.

Once again, and for the 12th time, the 57th Monte-Carlo Television Festival and Eurodata TV Worldwide have joined forces in order to reward scripted programs who deliver the highest ratings worldwide. This year’s International TV Audience Awards rewarded the programs that gathered the highest number of viewers worldwide in 2016 across five continents in three categories: “Drama TV Series”, “Comedy TV Series”, and “Telenovelas / Soap Operas”. The winners were revealed on Tuesday June 20th during the 57th Golden Nymph Awards Ceremony, held at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

We will next month release the second edition of our 4Screen report which is a comprehensive overview of current trends in multi-screen consumption, content & strategies worldwide. Mid-July our NoTa Trends report about content trends and programming strategies for the fall season will also be released.

Summer is just around the corner and so is our London Conference. Indeed, last year we held the second edition of our London conference on September 2016 sharing the latest TV consumption trends in the world and innovations in terms of content in collaboration with our customers and to meet our customers' expectations. Due to the success of this event we are pleased to announce its third edition taking place on October 3rd 2017 in London.

Saudi Media Measurement Company LLC – Tony Proudian – Research and Development Director – Saoudi Arabia

Saudi Media Measurement company (SMMC) has recently kicked off a fully new Television Audience Measurement survey in Saudi Arabia. Could you please explain the genesis and stakes of this pioneer project in the region?

SMMC Project preparation and setup started in 2015 licensed by GCAM (Ministry of Culture and Information).

In January 2017, the auditor (CESP) gave the project the green light to launch based on 2nd audit in 2016 (Oct-Dec) confirming the KPIs of the current panel deployment with global and international standards.

Saudi Media Measurement company developed the first measurement project, which is TV. Now, the management are looking to expand this service to include multi devices (digital) measurement, then cover other mediums such as outdoor, print …. Saudi Arabia, being the largest in population and purchase power, remains the attraction of all key advertisers.

What are the main characteristics and novelties of SMMC TAM Survey?

The panel is designed out of 2000 Households to reflect the population, which is made of Household across 13 administrative areas, 28 different cities represented in 5 regions as follow: Eastern Region, South Region, North Region, Central Region and Western Region.
Among the 28 cities, our extrapolation targets are registering viewership of individuals 4 years+.

By extracting none marketable population, we, now, represent 21,467,952 individuals, and 3,824,840 households (average family size / HH 5.6).

We are measuring 125 channels in total including Pay TV, Free to Air and IPTV.

Could you please give us a highlight about the main TV consumption trends in Saudi Arabia?

As it shows in the below graph the average viewing time spent per day by household members is 9 hours and 15 minutes, while on an average day 1 person spends 4 hours.

The TAM project opened a fantastic opportunity to advertisers to have the trust to spend more on advertising and we hope this act will contribute in the country flourishment by increasing the advertising spend per capita.

Outperform in the Commercial Target with Entertainment

While fiction continues to be the first genre in top 10 programmes in 2016, entertainment remains a powerful and appreciated genre all around the world. Indeed, this genre gives a real boost to prime-time performance but is also great for reaching out to the commercial target of private channels.

Entertainment gives a boost to prime-time performance

Overall, entertainment is appreciated by viewers, since on average the genre boosts the channels’ prime time market share by 8% among all the studied channels. By looking at the details per country, on average, the genre works better on the studied channels than the average prime time programming in 10 out of the 11 countries studied in our entertainment report.

Entertainment on private channels - a good combo for reaching out to the commercial target

Among the 89 channels studied, 65% (58 channels) have an entertainment market share in the commercial target that is superior to that in the all individuals target, which shows that viewers belonging to the commercial target have a strong taste for the entertainment genre. Moreover, among these 65%, 91% are private channels. Furthermore, on average, the main private generalist channels offer twice as much entertainment as the main public channels (447 hours vs. 228 hours).

In this way, when focusing on the main channels that have the greatest difference between the entertainment share in the commercial target vs. all viewers, it is clearly the private channels that are the most successful in the commercial target.

On the contrary, public channels mostly perform better with their entertainment programming in all the individuals target in comparison with the commercial one. In Japan, the public channel NHK G has a greater entertainment market share in all individuals, which is superior by 8.2 points to that in the commercial target. Some private channels have some difficulties with pleasing the commercial target and attract more viewers belonging to other age slots: this is the case in Spain and the USA.
All the facts and figures of these programmes (and much more!) can be found in the Entertainment Report, Edition 2017. The report was released in April 2017.

Scripted Series: Local Productions continue to Gain Ground

While a few years ago, American content was dominating the series’ scene worldwide, local productions are today’s key to success. If you look closer, local series are overconsumed all over the world and best performing series are mainly national productions.

Local series are overconsumed

In all studied countries in the latest Scripted Series report, national series tend to be overconsumed (their proportion in terms of viewing is higher than that of their offer). The proportion of national series among scripted shows in prime time increased in several countries compared to last season, most notably in Spain (+24 points) and in Venezuela (+35 points).

The largest overconsumption of national series is mostly seen in countries with a small proportion of national offer: Denmark (+18.6 points), Italy (+17.2 points), the Netherlands (+16.9 points).

click for a larger version

Regarding the channel’s level, only 10 out of the 103 studied channels do not air any national series in prime time, including 3 main channels: Pro 7 in Germany, and Rete 4 and Italia 1 in Italy. Out of the 72 that offer both imported and national shows in prime time, local productions overperform for 58% of them. This is especially true in the Netherlands and France as well as in Denmark and Sweden.

The studied channel, whose national shows overperform the most, is Denmark’s TV 2 which benefits from strong established hits (Badehotellet, Juleonsket) as well as new shows (Norskov).

Studied countries’ best performing series are mainly national production

Among the best performing series, national productions are once again the most appreciated programs. Including semi-national co-productions, they represent 84% of the best performing series in prime time. This proportion has increased compared to last season, an improvement mostly led by the increase of national programs in France, Italy, Sweden and Germany’s rankings.

Overall, only two studied countries, Russia and Venezuela, have an imported show as their best performing series. Everywhere else, the 2016 most watched TV series is a local one, such as Une Chance De Trop (No Second Chance) in France, or El Principe in Spain.

All the facts and figures of these programmes (and much more!) can be found in the Scripted Series report.
