And now for some good news. TEN won Tuesday night’s ratings. Very convincingly.
TEN won with a 27.4% share over Nine’s 24.6% and Seven’s 24.1%. It was a complete turnaround from Monday’s lousy 16% share.
It’s been quite some time since the network won an evening, but as audiences sample new summer line-ups, it was a double repeat of NCIS that spearheaded the win. That’s bad news for those who are looking for new treats in summer, when the audiences tell the networks “we wants repeats, please.”
TEN took nearly 1.3m viewers in one episode -that’s above what new episodes have been charting. Another 1.21m followed in a second repeat, an excellent retention for TEN. Its Britney: For the Record special was competitive with 920,000 and scored in key demographics.
TEN’s Bold & Beautiful experiment faltered in its second night slipping from 592,000 to 552,000 but it picked up a lot of ground on Monday’s Out of the Blue.
TEN’s night dominated by repeats, whipped Seven’s first-run evening of Ugly Betty, Eli Stone, Dirty Sexy Money and Prison Break.
