2.37m as The Voice gives Nine another big win

Nine's The Voice stumps up with another 2.37m viewers, pushing Australia's Got Talent back to 980,000 viewers.

The Voice continues to overwhelm weeknights, having now charted over two million viewers for all three of its performances.

Last night it pulled 2.37m viewers, pushing Australia’s Got Talent back to 980,000 viewers. The Biggest Loser was 761,000 for TEN but Bondi Vet sank to just 399,000.

A late-starting new episode of The Big Bang Theory was the night’s second best show on 1.5m viewers while The Block took third on 1.3m. Two Broke Girls was 881,000 (even eclipsing Rafters in the demos) but Top Gear was 347,000.

Nine pulled another big share over its rivals with 37.6% to Seven 26.1% and TEN’s 17.0%.

Best for Seven was Seven News (1.3m) which bettered Nine News (1.16m) in all cities except Sydney and Melbourne. Monday’s win for Nine was clearly bolstered by a “million dollar question” on Hot Seat.

Today Tonight (1.14m) also pipped A Current Affair (1.11m). Home and Away had to settle for third place with 929,000 viewers. Packed to the Rafters lifted above AGT to finish with 1.12m. Parenthood ended with 508,000 / 343,000 for two eps.

TEN was unable to rise above The Biggest Loser‘s 761,000 with TEN News on 718,000. NCIS was 508,000 / 531,000.

ABC News managed second place in its timeslot for ABC1 with 972,000 then 7:30 (543,000), Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple (519,000) and Country Town Rescue (503,000).

Who Do You Think You Are? featuring Vince Colosimo was 435,000 for SBS ONE then Insight (191,000) and Dateline (187,000).

Neighbours topped multichannels with 244,000. Californication was 72,000 and Nurse Jackie was just 56,000.

Sunrise: 373,000
Today: 341,000
ABC News Breakfast: 46,000 / 19,000
Breakfast: 34,000

  1. @Nathanael: it is indeed Packed to the Rafters’ lowest figure.
    I have done some research and found some interesting facts:
    *It’s the first time since May 25, 2010 that Seven lost to Nine on a Tuesday night (24.4% to 28.8%) partly due to the finale of Survivor: Heroes vs Villains on Nine.
    *Since Packed to the Rafters made its debut on August 2008 it only lost its timeslot on two occasions: against Charlie Sheen’s last episode and Ashton Kutcher’s first episode of Two and a Half Men on September 20 last year, and last night.
    *Seven only lost two Tuesday nights when Rafters was on: July 14, 2009, and last night.
    *The previous time Nine won a Tuesday night by more than 10% was March 21, 2006, during the Melbourne Commonwealth Games, when Nine got 41.7% audience share to Seven’s 24.4%.
