According to the latest figures from the Broadcasters’ Audience Research Board (BARB), commercial TV accounting for 66% of total linear TV viewing in June.

However, due in part to better weather this year and the improving economy, people have been encouraged out of the house more and so watched a little less linear TV as a result. The average viewer watched 2 hours, 15 minutes of commercial TV a day in June, 4 minutes less than last year.

As such, commercial TV impacts were down by 3.8% on the previous year, although 3% higher than five years ago.

Across the key advertiser audiences, men watched 2 hours, 17 minutes a day of commercial TV, up 1 minute; 16-34s watched 1 hour, 52 minutes a day, down 2 minutes; and ABC1 adults watched 1 hour, 54 minutes a day, up by 2 minutes on last year.
