Ratings: The X Factor is now nearly 500,000 in front of Nine's Big Brother and nearly 900,000 in front of MasterChef Australia.

2013-07-31_1006The X Factor now has 2 from 2 after again topping the night’s ratings.

The Seven show pulled 1.51m viewers, down slightly from Monday but nearly 500,000 in front of Nine’s Big Brother and nearly 900,000 in front of MasterChef Australia.

Seven network won the night with a 31.9% share then Nine 26.4%, ABC 18.6%, TEN 18.3% and SBS 4.8%.

Seven News was 1.3m for Seven then Today Tonight (1.14m), Home and Away (1.06m), Winners and Losers (1.02m), How I Met Your Mother (680,000 / 588,000), Deal or No Deal (515,000) and Go On (215,000).

Nine News (1.3m) was best for Nine then A Current Affair (1.09m), Big Brother (1.04m), The Great Australian Bakeoff (722,000), Hot Seat (663,000), The Bible (432,000) and The Mentalist (152,000).

ABC News (988,000) led ABC1 followed by New Tricks (865,000), 7:30 (756,000), Kitchen Cabinet (751,000), Australian Encounters (544,000), At the Movies (473,000) and Restoration Man (367,000). Lateline was 154,000.

Under the Dome (834,000) was best for TEN. TEN News was 693,000, MasterChef was 616,000, The Project was 571,000, NCIS: LA was 522,000, The Simpsons was 332,000 and TEN Late News was 207,000.

SBS ran a marathon repeat of Go Back to Where You Came From but did not recode with OzTAM so the numbers are incorrectly titled as Dateline (221,000), Insight (206,000), Who Do You Think You Are? (179,000) which means the audience was highest for the third hour. World News Australia was 175,000.

Shaun the Sheep rules multichannels (again) with 326,000.

The Morning Show: 148,000
Mornings: 104,000

  1. Congratulations Seven and especially Shaun the Sheep. 😉

    I’d like to thank GEM for Person of Interest plus the ABC for Four Corners and Media Watch.

    By the way if you want the secret to viewers that watch TV and the dirty little secret at the heart of modern television even though it’s probably inadvertent. Then it is under the Greek News article below.

    I’ll just add I resent all the attempts at corruption even if it was unintentional. I hate wrong doing. I guess that’s why I keep feeling like I should give up watching some channels and shows. I love TV but not that.


  2. X Factor auditions are going to go on for months at this rate. Last night again it was 1 contestant every 10 minutes. Even the decent singers without a story had to have a goofy side or something other than their talent…Having read through what was going on in the NZ version we can’t even trust that the talent we see is real as miming of instruments etc is encouraged.
    GABO is good & deserves a bigger audience.

  3. I don’t think Winners and Losers is tanking, but I don’t think its a hit either. Last night’s numbers were an improvement, but it is concerning that it needs to have a ratings powerhouse behind it just to crack 1m viewers. It could also be adjusted down below 1m if XF ran overtime. Alternatively, shows like A Place to Call Home and Offspring pull in consistent numbers each week without significant lead ins.

  4. really liking TXF this year, 2nd episode was an improvement, less sob stories and Dannii is shining. shes at her best when she’s got her bitch on. but her wigs are very distracting.

    seems X has put the wind back into 7’s sails. 7news, TT, sunrise, morning show, home and away even deal showing signs of improvement. DOND still doing abysmally, but better than the 300k gap it had a few weeks ago.

  5. @hotgoat – the only thing that should be questioned is why people are happy to believe the ratings when their favourite show does well but question the methodology when they don’t like the numbers. People have school/work the next day. I think you’ll find that the +7 ratings will show a bump for the 2nd ep.

  6. @hotgoat – yep most definitely people would of turned off and not bothered watching the finale

    I haven’t seen the show in a while and gosh has it gone down hill! I couldn’t get through the 2 episodes.

  7. X Factor is best show among the plethora of reality drivel, so I’m glad it’s won. But with Reality on all three networks and only 2nd rate drama’s, Tuesday nights has become a real bore. I might have to take up reading a good book.

  8. I would have thought that MC would be coming back into its own by now. It looks like ch10s second half of the year will mirror the first……absolute disaster

  9. Just had to say to all the negative posts about W&L in the last three weeks: It is now over a million. Sometimes a good lead in helps, doesn’t mean the show is tanking or is garbage!?!
    As for 9 The Mentalist repeat: Is it worth it, when the ‘brand’ of the show is now plague by excessive repeats?!?
