Tuesday a three-way tussle

Ratings: Seven only just pipped TEN to win Tuesday, with Nine a close third. And SBS lifted its share.

Without the usual fare across networks last night there were some interesting results.

It was a close game between all three commercial networks. Seven only just pipped TEN to win the night, with Nine a close third. And SBS lifted its share with profile shows.

Seven News (1.17m) and Today Tonight (1.08m) led for Seven followed by Home and Away on 958,000. There was a drop for World’s Strictest Parents (647,000) and a movie, The Boys Are Back, was just 428,000.

The Biggest Loser pulled 864,000 for TEN and managed to top all three demos. An NCIS repeat was 834,000 / 681,000 then Bondi Vet (778,000 / 759,000), TEN News (674,000) and The Project (476,000).

Nine News (1.11m) tied in Sydney and won in Melbourne and Brissy. ACA was 1.03m then Big Bang (878,000 / 825,000), 2 Broke Girls (697,000 / 636,000). Two and a Half Men was 458,000 and Top Gear just 332,000.

ABC News again won its timeslot on 985,000 but fell away to 624,000 for 7:30, lower than Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple (654,000) and Country Town Rescue (644,000).

Who Do You Think You Are? with Kerry O’Brien did great business for SBS ONE. At 623,000 it was just 1,000 short of beating his former 7:30. Insight was 338,000 and Dateline was 196,000.

Neighbours topped multichannels with 298,000.

  1. Knew 2 Broke Girls wouldn’t suit the Australian Audience. The humour is just too forced and the laughing audio doesn’t help either. They should just keep it simple like How I Met Your Mother.

    Have been a fan of the TBL since season 1 and gotta say this isn’t a bad season. Glad that TEN moved it back to 7pm where all their reality TV shows should be.

    Australian shows such as Bondi Vet and The Project gives Australian TV shows a distinct colour and flavour seperating from American shows. That’s what I like about it.

    I’ve notice channel 7 has overpromoting alot of TV shows from their favourite american network, ABC. I’m sure Once Upon a Time will be a hit.

  2. I think Ten needs to cut 7pm project to 30 mins because it’s not a good lead in for 10’s popular shows @ 7pm. They need to think long and hard to find a show that can fill the 6.30-7pm slot, maybe they could look now and do it next yr.
    Channel 11 still hasn’t put the simpsons back to 6pm where it was born on Ten and where it should be on 11, it would be a much better lead in than sabrina!! Also becker it a night show so stop wasting it during the day.

  3. Makes me wonder if Nine had not shown a TG re-run but put on a new ep, maybe even the missing AU ones could they have won the night?

    Ditto for TEN with NCIS.

    BTW does Seven still have the rights to Titanic the move? Why not air is them week with the 100th anv and the movie back in cinemas what better time for some one to show it?

  4. “Who Do You Think You Are” was very good last night. Got a lot of Australian history in this one (O’Brien didn’t go to another country to research his ancestors). I hope they keep making an Australian version of this show.

  5. Agreed about The Biggest Loser, why was it a 30 minute episode? It didn’t make any sense. Is it so Thursdays episode isn’t just filler content and has actual competition in it?

  6. @goonies totally agree and what made it even worse was the way that they snuck in a repeat of bondi vet after the new one instead of the re run of bondi vet they could have had a1 hour BL and then had the new bondi vet at 8pm BL would have rated better if it was a 1 hour ep

  7. The only reason TEN done so well was because it was Dull Tuesday with little good programming on an average week let alone during non-ratings with all major shows being repeats (e.g. 2 Broke Girls). This will no doubt go to TEN’s programming team’s head and make them think they are doing something right.
