Hard Copy Takes Over As Top-Rated SA Show On TVSA

The third season of newsroom drama Hard Copy took over as the top-rated South African show on TVSA in December, replacing Temptation South Africa as the show TVSA viewers believe is the best local production on television.

Temptation is still the highest-rated South African show overall, but having ended in November it was not considered for the December ratings.

Other shows to drop out of the Top 10 in December were Healing Power Of Nature, Survivor South Africa: Panama and The Cut: South Africa, all of which also ended in November.

Hard Copy premiered in September but didn't have the minimum required number of ratings to be considered for the Top 10 until December.

The show is made by Curious Pictures, who previously scored a number one in the TVSA Top 10 SA Shows with The Lab.

As a result of the shows that dropped out of the Top 10, four new shows made the list in December: Hard Copy, Carte Blanche, Egoli and Isidingo.

It is important to note that the ratings for these shows don't necessarily reflect their popularity in terms of viewing figures - they represent the shows that TVSA readers believe to be the best on television.

The TVSA monthly ratings also include the Top 10 Shows Overall.

This list is made up of all shows, local or foreign, but is still predominantly made up of American shows.

Rome continues to be the top-rated show overall on TVSA as it was still airing on M-Net Series in December.

The Top 10 Shows Overall had a radical shake-up in December as seven shows that ended in November were removed from the list.

The vampire thriller Blade: The Series premiered on actionX on 28 November and quickly received enough positive ratings to catapult it into the Top 10 list in 2nd place.

Another new show - the American version of the British comedy The Office, which is currently airing on M-Net - debuted on the list in 5th.

The third season of firefighting drama Rescue Me scored positive ratings, as did M-Net's sci-fi thriller Invasion.

24's Kiefer Sutherland climbed a place into 2nd following some negative ratings for the actor he replaced, Lost's Dominic Monaghan.

The only South African actor on the list remains Zola.

About The TVSA Ratings

The TVSA Ratings are compiled monthly and are based on the highest-rated active television shows and actors as rated by readers of TVSA.

It is important to note that the ratings are not a true reflection of all shows airing on South African television - they are based on the shows TVSA has in its database.

TVSA currently has 1,120 shows and 6,438 actors in its database, and the TVSA Ratings are taken from these shows and actors.

Only registered members of TVSA may rate shows and systems are in place to prevent ratings abuse. Only shows or actors with a minimum of five unique user ratings are included.

An aggregate of ratings makes up the overall rating of a show or actor, and in cases where two shows have the exact same aggregate they are ordered by the show with the most number of individual ratings.
