The second episode of TEN’s Bachelorette has broken the record for the highest seven-day online catch-up audience in Australia.
The 21st September episode attracted an additional 179,000 viewers, eclipsing the previous record held by Game of Thrones at 176,000 viewers.
It lifted the episode’s total seven-day capital-city consolidated audience to 1.27 million, covering television and online viewing.
The premiere episode also ranks as the #3 biggest catch-up in 7 day viewing at 170,000 viewers. This reiterates that TEN has a hit on its hands in Sophie Monk, also topping the demos on both Wednesday & Thursday nights this week.
TEN Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “After just four episodes, The Bachelorette Australia with Sophie Monk is a major success on all screens.
“The show’s overnight television audience alone is up 44% in total people compared with the first four episodes last year and it ranks #1 in its timeslot in total people, 25 to 54s and under 55s. It dominates social media conversations and engagement every time it is on air.
“The Bachelorette Australia’s online catch-up viewing on tenplay this year has been extraordinary. So far, the average online catch-up viewing per episode has soared more than 160% compared with 2016. Australia has fallen in love with Sophie Monk and the Bachelors, regardless of what screen they are watching them on,” she said.
