The decision to air the show in a 9:30 Thursday timeslot was indicative that the network was not looking to make a big splash (it had previously aired Hamish MacDonald’s series in an 8:30 Monday slot). It’s going to take time to find an audience. But in television one should always be trying to flow and an audience from one show to the next, and Revealed lost a pile of viewers from Law and Order: SVU‘s 592,000 viewers. Might it be better served on a Sunday morning? The show didn’t even rate a mention in TEN’s daily ratings release today.
TEN wasn’t alone with the bad news last night with Seven also languishing from 9pm.
Nine network won the night with a share of 30.8% then Seven 27.0%, ABC 18.6%, TEN 17.1% and SBS 6.4%.
Nine News was 1.18m for Nine then A Current Affair (940,000), The Footy Show (846,000), Big Brother (806,000) and Hot Seat (694,000).
