Australia’s Got Talent is in trouble as it heads into its final weeks.
With viewers having committed to The Voice for the past few weeks, they haven’t connected with the performers on the show, and sports events have also affected its scheduling this year.
Last night it pulled just 881,000 across all 5 cities -a marked contrast to last year’s season when it was well over twice that figure.
Nine won Wednesday with 28.4% to Seven’s 26.8% and TEN’s 22.7%. ABC was 16.2% and SBS 5.9%.
The Block looks like being unbeatable as it heads towards its finale on Sunday week. It was again the top show with 1.51m for Nine. With 1.29m Nine News was inches away from beating Seven News, while A Current Affair (1.22m) beat Today Tonight. Big Bang was 1.06m / 885,000 then Hot Seat (760,000), The Mentalist (671,000) and RPA (403,000).
Seven News was 1.3m for Seven then Today Tonight (1.07m), plus Home and Away (835,000), The Amazing Race Australia (695,000), Deal or No Deal (655,000) and The Price is Right was 395,000.
MasterChef did well with 1.12m for TEN. Offspring was 906,000, TEN News was 803,000, The Project 6pm was 467,000 and House was 365,000.
ABC News was 908,000 for ABC1 then Myf Warhurst’s Nice (597,000), 7:30 (540,000), Randling (442,000), Life’s Too Short (401,000), Qi (399,000) and At the Movies (325,000).
Indian Ocean with Simon Reeve was 350,000 for SBS ONE, East to West was 209,000 and Speed of Life was 189,000.
Neighbours topped multichannels with 306,000. Dumb, Drunk and Racist had 266,000.
