How did TEN fare without it? Who won the new 7:30 battle?
The answer to the first question is: Jamie Oliver was no replacement. And the second: The X Factor.
But Nine took the night, its first for the week.
Nine network won with a share of 29.9% then Seven 26.9%, TEN 23.7%, ABC 14.1% and SBS 5.5%.
Nine News (1.14m / 1.1m) topped the night overall, next for Nine were The Block (1.00m), ACA (989,000), Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year South America -which also topped the demos- (987,000), Hot Seat (616,000), a belatedly added Big Bang (526,000 / 366,000). Arrow, which was bumped without advice, was just 197,000.
The X Factor (1.11m) won its timeslot for Seven. Next were Seven News (1.08m / 1.03m), Home and Away (992,000), Winners and Losers (768,000) and Million Dollar Minute (572,000). Chicago Fire was 347,000 / 257,000.
TEN’s 9:30pm coverage of Glasgow Live proved to be its best performer at 675,000 -suggesting that the network is now missing out on a bigger audience that would be watching earlier coverage on TEN (later coverage was 451,000). TEN Eyewitness News was 616,000 and The Project was 616,000 / 495,000. Feeling the pinch without MasterChef, Save with Jamie managed just 441,000 -last in its timeslot- and Under the Dome disappointed at 399,000. It was ONE’s 7.6% share that kept the network from humiliation.
ABC News (818,000) led ABC then 7:30 (651,000), Foreign Correspondent (616,000), QI (464,000), Life at 9 (440,000) and At the Movies (381,000).
Who Do You Think You Are? (471,000) is still best for SBS ONE then Insight (249,000), SBS World News (148,000) and Dateline (129,000).
Glasgow Live (582,000 / 347,000) ruled multichannels for ONE.
The Morning Show: 145,000
Studio 10: 62,000
