Respectable start for Being Lara Bingle

The premiere of Being Lara Bingle may have been third in its timeslot but it still pulled a respectable 924,000 viewers last night.

TEN’s new fly-on-the-wall series was beaten by The Big Bang Theory (1.25m) and Once Upon a Time (1.05m). On Twitter last night, many took aim at the show and Bingle herself, with many refusing to even view the episode.

Seven won the night thanks to Seven News (1.5m), Packed to the Rafters (1.38m), Today Tonight (1.28m), Home and Away (968,000), Deal or No Deal (724,000), Pictures of You (686,000) and The Price is Right (387,000).

The Block dominated at 7pm with 1.42m for Nine followed by Nine News (1.27m), ACA‘s Lindy Chamberlain exclusive (1.12m), Big Bang (ep 2: 984,000), Two Broke Girls (737,000), Hot Seat (702,000), Two and a Half Men (561,000). Survivor was 288,000.

Jamie Oliver’s appearance in MasterChef was strong with just under 1.3m viewers. Bikie Wars was 1.03m, TEN News was 790,000, NCIS was 562,000 and The Project 6pm was 432,000.

ABC News was 898,000 for ABC1 then 7:30 (682,000), Qi and Foreign Correspondent (both 609,000), Origins of Us (557,000), and Jennifer Byrne Presents (292,000).

On SBS ONE it was Who Do You Think You Are? (255,000), and Death Unexplained (248,000).

Neighbours was up to 354,000 on ELEVEN.

  1. LOL at ricoz Comment “I’ve lost faith in 924,000 Australian’s today.”

    Unfortunately I was one them. I watched the show to give it a go, but not sure if I’ll be watching it next week.

  2. Can’t wait for Bikie Wars to get to point already. Last night was fifty percent padding. It should have been two telemovies not a six part series.
