After fourteen weeks of leading the weekly charts in Israel, the first season of Keshet International’s interactive talent show ended last night on a high note.
Rising Star was #1 in the weekly charts 9 out of 14 weeks it aired. 83% of HH were exposed to the show during the season.
The season reached 33.8% average rating/47.4% average share and is the second highest average share for a talent show in Israel (after Master Class 48%).
During the season over 10 million votes were tallied through the Mako TV app, which was downloaded by over 1.5 million people. That’s an impressive figure considering that in Israel there are just over two million TV homes.
The conversion rate was an unprecedented 30% during the season.
The show launched in the holiday season and captured an incredible 44.7% share, making it the highest debut of a TV show during the September launch season.
Throughout the season, the show broke ratings records and gained strength in all key demographics. The stable and strong ratings grew steadily for the entirety of the season and never had a mid-season drop.
From the minute it premiered in Israel, Rising Star struck a chord internationally selling in Germany (RTL), Russia (Rossiya 1), France (M6), Italy (Toro), Scandinavian territories (Nordisk), Hungary (TV2), Spain (Antena 3), US (ABC), UK (ITV) and more recently to Brazil (Globo) and Portugal (TVI). More deals will be announced soon.
