The X Factor‘s “Super Boot Camp” was hardly riveting television last night, but it underlined the need to track contestants “journeys” (sorry!) in talent shows. The show was #1 last night with 1.47m viewers driving Seven to another win.
Seven Network was 31.9% then Nine 26.0%, ABC 22.9%, TEN 14.8% and SBS 4.5%.
Also for Seven were Seven News (1.22m), Today Tonight (1.13m), Home and Away (996,000), GCB (758,000 / 585,000), but Deal or No Deal was only 471,000.
Nine News (1.22m) led Nine. ACA was 1.04m, Big Brother was 1.00m, Underbelly: Badness slipped under the magic million with 990,000, Hot Seat was 605,000 and Gordon Behind Bars was 314,000.
ABC News won its timeslot with 1.13m for ABC1 followed by Australian Story (857,000), Four Corners (844,000), 7:30 (773,000), Media Watch (769,000), Q & A (662,000) and Paralympics highlights (386,000).
TEN News did well with 783,000 for TEN but then it was downhill. Can of Worms had a fascinating discussion on whether to out social media trolls, but managed 600,000, Modern Family was 549,000, Don’t Tell the Bride was 513,000, The Project 6pm was 456,000 and The Shire was down to 220,000.
Mythbusters (276,000) topped SBS ONE followed by Test Your Brain (213,000) and World News Australia (149,000).
Heartbeat ranked firsts on multichannels with 339,000.
ABC News Breakfast: 66,000 / 32,000
