Using the daily data collected through GeoPoll’s Media Measurement Service, GeoPoll has analyzed the top TV stations in Ghana for Q2, April 1st – June 30th. We examined both ratings* and share** for the top stations in Ghana. The below chart shows the average ratings for the top 10 stations during the peak hours, from 19:00 to 21:30.

The below illustration shows that TV3 was leading in ratings from 19:00 to 19:30 when it airs its news show “News 360”. After “News 360”, UTV shows a strong jump with an average rating of 5.58 at 20:00 and 5.93 at 20:30 hence had the highest ratings in Q2 during the peak hours. During this time, UTV airs a popular soap opera ‘La Gata’. The other stations maintained sustained ratings during this time.

*Rating
 is the proportion watching a station out of the total sample at that time, multiplied by 100. If 50 people out of 500 surveyed watched Station X, the rating for Station X would be (50/500)*100) = 10. In Uganda, GeoPoll’s Media Measurement Panel includes a sample of over 500 respondents for every time period. 

**Share is the proportion watching Station X, out of all those watching at that time. This is equal to the proportion watching a station during a given time divided by the total number watching at that time.
