It’s not very good news for the revamped Good News World for TEN. A week ago it was 590,000 and a winner in its timeslot.
Last night it dropped to a disappointing 354,000 viewers and fourth place. That’s despite a lead-in of 764,00 from Undercover Boss Australia.
But if a television network seeks to shore up a band of loyal viewers then Seven may well have hit the right note. On Sunday night there were 1,398,000 viewers watching Wild Boys at 7:30pm. On Monday night there were 1,398,000 viewers watching The X Factor at 7:30pm.
Presumably it’s just a coincidence. But if X Factor gets 1,398,000 tonight we may have to start sharing those OzTAM people meters around a little more.
X Factor beat The Farmer Wants A Wife (969,000), 7.30 / Australian Story (711,000 / 817,000), The Renovators (580,000) and Mythbusters (326,000). Renovators’ stint rebuilding after the Queensland floods is even down 28,000 in the Brissy market compared to Monday last week.
Home And Away Seven (1.18m) pipped ABC News (1.01m), followed by The Big Bang Theory (828,000) and The 7pm Project (784,000).
At 8:30pm it was Body Of Proof (996,000) over Undercover Boss Australia (764,000), Four Corners / Media Watch (687,000 / 639,000), The Ugly Truth (649,000) and Swift And Shift Couriers / Pizza (285,000 / 221,000).
At 9:30pm Q & A was 630,000.
Neighbours led multichannels with 359,000 viewers.
Nine’s coverage of the Sam Stosur win saw preliminary numbers for Today rise to 508,000 over Sunrise‘s 399,000 -but they haven’t yet been adjusted for the actual broadcast given Today was relayed on GEM in some cities.
