Nine wins Tuesday, TEN pushes Seven to third

Ratings: The strength of TEN's MasterChef actually does a favour for Nine, by pushing Seven into third place.

When TEN draws strong numbers, either Seven or Nine is usually happy, because it generally hits their opposition. Last night the strength of TEN’s MasterChef pushed Seven into third place, underlining the reasons why we all need three commercial networks firing on all cylinders.

For the second night in a row Nine has managed to come out on top. House Rules slipped for Seven once again, fourth behind Reno Rumble. It was also down in the demos.

Nine network won Tuesday with 27.1% then TEN 24.9%, Seven 23.5%, ABC 17.8% and SBS 6.7%.

Nine News (1.16m / 1.06m) was best for Nine then A Current Affair (951,000), Love Child won its timeslot (817,000), Reno Rumble in third place (718,000), Hot Seat (636,000) and Big Bang (526,000 / 340,000).

MasterChef topped the night with 1.21m for TEN. NCIS was 727,000, The Project was 679,000 / 519,000, TEN Eyewitness News was 607,000 and NCIS: LA was 460,000 / 242,000.

Seven News (1.08m / 989,000) led for Seven then Home and Away (736,000), House Rules (675,000), Million Dollar Minute (536,000) and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares again coded incorrectly at (494,000).  At 10pm How to Get Away with Murder sank to just 182,000 suggesting Seven should never have split the season. Lesson learned.

It was Budget night at ABC with ABC News (885,000), Budget 2015 (733,000), ABC News Budget Night Special (600,000), Slow Train through Africa with Griff Rhys Jones (493,000) and Antiques Roadshow (329,000).

SBS ONE had a reasonably good night with Queen Victoria’s Children (380,000), Insight (264,000), Dateline (199,000) and SBS World News (150,000).

ABC2’s Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom topped multichannels at 256,000.

Mornings: 124,000 / 100,000
The Morning Show: 119,000 / 85,000
Studio 10: 69,000 / 53,000

  1. Big time cracks for Channel 7. I didn’t know HTGAWM was even on. Awesome result for Mornings. Love Child was brilliant last night as always.
    David when is House Husbands coming back, it’ll be great if House Husbands on first and then Love Child

  2. New scripted ABC reality show “The Budget” followed by GoggleBudget has put the proverbial cat amongst the pigeons. The feathers will have settled by the time the spin-off show “Right Of Reply” hits the airwaves tonight. It’s interesting to note that the two contestants in these shows were not wearing aprons nor white hats!
    The new House Rules-Kitchen Makeover segment will have two rival catering companies cooking up a storm with their roasted, toasted meals being judged by the renovators.

  3. Some people get way too invested in their personal favourites…

    “No, no, it’s not fourth – it’s third! Forget looking at it the normal way – y’see, if you squint this way and turn your head just slightly …”

  4. 7 is starting to crack. Big time.

    It’s now clear just how much MKR was propping up their sked.

    And TVT focuses on total people – but in 7’s target demo – 25-54 – the news is even worse.

  5. Seven just kill their US dramas with dumb scheduling. Once Upon A Time was consistently at 1m viewers before they started doubling up on episodes and changing timeslots.

    Same could be said about Greys Anatomy, Scandal and The Blacklist. They have only themselves to blame.

    1. Quote: “At 10pm How to Get Away with Murder sank to just 182,000 suggesting Seven should never have split the season. Lesson learned.” Sadly, I don’t think the leasson is learnt.

  6. Your quote is not quite right.
    ‘House Rules slipped for Seven once again, fourth behind Reno Rumble. It was also down in the demos’

    HR was 3rd in slot.
    HR was down a handful of thousand on Monday. RR was 132k down.
    In younger key demos HR was up in 2 of the 3 key demo groups.
    RR was down in all, losing about 20% night on night.
