After losing Monday night to Nine, Seven has moved quickly to shore up its share, by dumping the underperforming nature doco it had planned Eye of the Leopard in favour of one about overweight people losing weight.
So get ready for 10 Things You Need to Know About Losing Weight next Monday night at 7:30pm:
Exploring the real science behind weight loss with scientific stories that will shock, amuse and entertain. Revealing the new evidence of what works and more importantly, showing ways to keep it off. During the night, a group of volunteers, many of whom struggle with their weight, undergo tests to see if these new scientific theories really do work.
The BBC special aired in the UK in May.
Last night’s doco Relentless Enemies: Lions And Buffalo only managed 891,000, which in that slot is poor for Seven. Interestingly it’s also the same slot where Nine had David Attenborough last year.
But the show was beaten by Top Gear which cleared the 1m mark and Two and a Half Men on 1.2m.
