Monday night delivered a big win to Seven with its reality line-up of My Kitchen Rules and the Conviction Kitchen finale.
My Kitchen Rules topped the night on 1.51m viewers, miles in front of The Biggest Loser (863,000), 7:30 / Australian Story (736,000 / 863,000), Two and a Half Men (778,000 / 622,000) and Mythbusters (331,000).
That helped Conviction Kitchen to a nice slice of viewers for its final episode, pulling 928,000 to win its slot -although it wasn’t the show’s biggest audience. It was Four Corners in second place on 761,000 partnered with Media Watch on 677,000. House had 698,000 for TEN. With its poor lead-in The Million Dollar Drop managed just 615,000, well down on Thursday’s audience (741,000). Man vs Wild had outstanding traction on 330,000 -a dip of just 1,000 viewers.
The first night of The Big Bang Theory in place of Two and a Half Men at Nine was 860,000, third in its slot.
6.30 With George Negus pulled 474,000 which lifts from last Monday’s audience of 452,000. The timeslot move shows it heading in the right direction.
Neighbours (356,000) and Jonathan Creek (349,000) lead the multichannel race after GO! inanely abandoned its schedule late yesterday afternoon for a marathon of The Big Bang Theory / Two and a Half Men -is that all there is?
Seven thumped the rest with a sizeable lead over its competition. This week is already over.
