House Rules improves for Seven
Ratings: House Rules pushes Reno Rumble into third place, but MasterChef is still the icing on the cake.
Seven has fired back in the new Reality battle, with House Rules pushing Reno Rumble into third place.
MasterChef Australia still came out on top at 1.15m viewers but House Rules lifted to 931,000, leaving Nine’s Reno Rumble with 823,000 viewers. Nevertheless, the two renovation shows appear to have divided their audiences with Nine’s show preventing Seven from having a runaway success thus far.
How that will impact on a second season for House Rules this year is still too early to tell and both show shows are more susceptible to TEN’s cooking show when they aren’t revealing their makeovers -meaning this will be a very interesting week.
Seven network won Sunday with a 29.8% share then Nine 24.2%, TEN 23.4%, ABC 17.4% and SBS 5.3%.
