On Saturday night Network TEN hit a low of 10.0% network share.
TEN managed just 9.3% while ONE was just 0.7%.
Meanwhile Nine won the night with 34.2%, tripling TEN, while Seven had 28.7 and even the ABC doubled the network with 20.7%. It even doubled TEN in primary channels.
The figure was the lowest for TEN all year -even below the weakest night of the Commonwealth Games.
TEN’s top show for the night was TEN News at Five on 520,000 viewers. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer pulled only 330,000 while Miami Vice movie was 302,000.
Meanwhile for the second week in a row Neighbours didn’t make the Weekly Top 100. Thankfully there was better news with Junior MasterChef, Glee, NCIS and Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation. But the network is really feeling the lack of an entertainment digital channel. ELEVEN can’t come soon enough.
The figures comes at a time when James Packer is reportedly pushing for change.
New Director Jim Carroll says the network is on track to launch its new bulletins, despite media speculation on Packer’s plans.
“From our point of view the project is going ahead and we are continuing at full steam,” he told The Australian. “As a news division we are getting 100 per cent support from management and we are proceeding on that basis.
“There have been a lot of articles written,” he said. “I don’t know the sources of those articles but I’m sure some of our commercial competitors are stirring the pot as much as they possibly can.”
