BKN announces UK viewing figures for Dork Hunters continue to grow in multiple markets.
Publish date:

The UK saw an audience share in excess of 38 per cent placing it in number two position for boys aged four to nine years, boys aged four to 15 years and all children categories on Sunday November 9th.

This share has gained eight per cent over last week’s audience share.

South Africa continues to deliver a strong audience share on SABC 1 with a 44.8 per cent share of children aged six to 11. Since its launch in August it has continually beaten off all competition.

The property launched a week ago in Australia on TEN Network and reflects a timeslot gain of 13 per cent increase in audience share for children aged five to 12 years from the more established Yu-Gi-Oh and beats Ben 10 by five fold on a total audience share.

Russia saw the launch on CTC on October 13th and across the first 15 episodes, Dork Hunters achieved an average share of 43.8 per cent of the four to nine age group, 46.6 per cent in the six to 11 group and 50.2 per cent of boys aged four to nine.

Nicola Andrews, managing director of BKN New Media in London said: “We are extremely pleased with these ratings in multiple markets and the fact that Dork Hunters has found a core audience of kids and boys.

“It demonstrates that the humour inherent in the show transcends different cultures. The show has delivered consistently with each launch and we expect this to continue as we roll-out worldwide.”
