Season Thirteen a hit Down Under

Season Thirteen of Thomas & Friends has become a hit on Australia's ABC Kids Channel. The first run of the 2010 series ran on Monday to Friday at 4:10pm, pulling in a 47% increase in viewers on the channel.

In the first quarter of 2010, Thomas made a 43% audience share across all australian TV channels.

Hit Entertainment's Senior Vice President of Production and Programming, Christopher Skala commented on the increase. We are thrilled that so many Australian viewers are enjoying the new series of Thomas & Friends. The full CGI animation really enhances the visual experience and the fact the engines can speak for themselves adds a fresh feel and texture to the stories. 

The data of the increase was revealed by Haven Licensing.



  1. I loved it it was sure a hit in the Auz shame that thire now only showing season 6-10 :(

  2. I felt really upset to see Thomas in cgi, HiT were just making Awdry turn in his grave even more.
