While TEN continues to merge the numbers as a single figure, we still don’t know how it is faring head to head with other shows on a sole channel. In this regard it’s a bit like comparing apples with oranges.
Last night at 697,000 viewers it outrated all other shows in TEN’s schedule (possibly aided by a tornado in Ramsay Street), which would be a little bit awkward were it to continue on a regular basis. Anecdotal evidence would suggest the show is doing well enough to stand on its own feet with single channel figures, and undoubtedly an improvement on its predecessor. When will TEN bite the bullet?
Nevertheless Nine network won the night with 32.4% then Seven 28.0%, TEN 17.8% , ABC 15,7% and SBS 6.0%.
The Block (1.21m) led the night for Nine then Nine News (1.19m / 1.07m), A Current Affair (950,000), To Catch a Smuggler (637,000), Hot Seat (607,000) and Big Bang (384,000 / 333,000).
