TEN is already feeling the absence of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! from its schedule with its network share tumbling last night to just 15.4%.
Its Neighbours 30th: The Stars Reunite special was lovingly produced, but failed to crack the Top 20 despite being simulcast on two channels. As a result, numbers for ELEVEN were dismal, just 1.8%, because it lacked alternative viewing choices. Despite the special trending on Twitter it also under-performed in the demos.
Seven network won the night with a share of 33.5% then Nine 26.1%, ABC 19.9%, TEN 15.4% and SBS 5.1%.
My Kitchen Rules eliminated South Australia’s Annie and Lloyd to the tune of 1.76m viewers -close to a season best and a staggering four times the audience of TEN. Seven News was 1.04m / 999,000 then Home and Away (960,000), Revenge (698,000) and Million Dollar Minute (522,000). Parenthood was 279,000 / 198,000.
Nine News (1.08m / 1.01m) was best for Nine then The Big Bang Theory (938,000 / 757,000 / 569,000), The Block (861,000), A Current Affair (859,000) and Hot Seat (556,000). Person of Interest was 219,000 / 142,000.
ABC News was strong at 911,000 followed by Australian Story (814,000), 7:30 (798,000), Four Corners (757,000), Media Watch (716,000), Q & A (691,000).
TEN Eyewitness News was 570,000 for TEN. The Project was 554,000 / 437,000, Law and Order: SVU was 404,000.
On SBS ONE it was Australia with Simon Reeve (261,000), Richard Hammond’s Miracles of Nature (211,000), SBS World News (130,000) and a Gourmet Farmer Afloat repeat (121,000).
Thankfully Neighbours at least topped the multichannels with 283,000.
