Last night The Voice (1.25m) and MasterChef Australia (1.04m) both pipped Seven’s talent quest in the Reality TV stakes. Seven’s decision to launch against two shows heading towards their finals appears to have cost it some viewers. Last night it had to settle for 970,000 viewers -its lowest ever audience on Seven.
TEN’s 3 x channel roadblock of a hyper Family Feud pulled 690,000 viewers (individual channels have not been supplied), which the network notes is up 1/3 on the timeslot.
Elsewhere the FIFA World Cup final scored a brilliant 883,000 viewers for SBS, seemingly sending Sunrise down to just 1,000 ahead of Today.
Nine network won Monday with a 30.2% share then Seven 27.4%, ABC 18.6%, TEN 17.4% and SBS 6.4%.
Nine scored the top 4 rankings with Nine News topped the night with 1.33m / 1.23m viewers then The Voice (1.25m) and A Current Affair (1.24m). Hot Seat was 679,000, House Husbands was 534,000 and Footy Classified was 311,000 in 3 cities.
Seven News was 1.2m / 1.12m for Seven then X Factor (970,000), Home and Away (901,000), Million Dollar Minute (610,000), Anh Does Brazil (531,000). Talking Footy was 41,000 (101,000 on 7mate) in 3 cities.
ABC News (890,000) led ABC1 then Australian Story (796,000), 7:30 (767,000), Four Corners (706,000), Media Watch (633,000) and Q & A (534,000).
MasterChef Australia (1.04m) continues to serve up an audience for TEN. Family Feud scored 690,000 across TEN, ELEVEN and ONE -channel numbers have not been broken out, however last week’s 3 channels scored 529,000 for the same timeslot. Elsewhere TEN Eyewitness News was also 690,000, then The Project (603,000 / 453,000), Have You Been Paying Attention? increased (408,000) and 24 (220,000).
Germany’s FIFA World Cup win kicked goals at 883,000 for SBS ONE -just not in primetime where it would lift their share. In primetime Richard Hammond’s Miracles of Nature was 263,000 then Pain Pus and Poison (254,000), Tour de France (217,000) and SBS World News 151,000.
Neighbours led multichannels at 302,000.
