TEN’s first primetime screening of The Bold and the Beautiful picked up a little traction, with 592,000 viewers on Monday.
That improved slightly on The Simpsons‘ average of 581,000 last week and quite some ground on Bold‘s average of 466,000 at 4:30pm last week.
Of course, there may well have been a curiosity factor from people wanting to know what all the fuss was about, especially those who are never home at 4:30pm.
TEN’s evening share, however, sank even further. Down to just 16.0%. Dismally, its 5pm News was the top rating show of the day at 909,000 -beaten by Top Gear on 915,000. Oh dear. Meanwhile angry fans of 90210 (many of whom didn’t even know it was back last Monday) lament its absence.
ABC had a strong night with The Howard Years, Enough Rope, ABC News all of which won their timeslots and an impressive 22.3% share.
SBS boosted to 9.2%
