Today pips Sunrise, Winners and Losers lifts Seven.

Ratings: Nine wins Tuesday with The Voice on 1.6m, while Seven scores with local drama.


Usually when Nine wins primetime, Seven can at least take comfort that it won at breakfast, but yesterday it was unable to claim that, with Today‘s 316,000 pipping Sunrise‘s 293,000. It’s a rare win for Nine, so unlikely to be trembling Martin Place just yet.

Seven’s Tuesday was much better than its Monday thanks to Winners and Losers topping its belated timeslot at 646,000 viewers.

But the night was another win for Nine with a network share of 30.7% then Seven 27.0%, TEN 21.3%, ABC 15.3% and SBS 5.6%.

The final blind audition for The Voice topped the night at 1.6m viewers for Nine then Nine News (1.19m / 1.14m), A Current Affair (1.03m), Hot Seat (658,000) and Embarrassing Bodies Down Under (594,000).

Seven News (1.03m / 1.01m) was best for Seven the penultimate House Rules (1.00m), Home and Away (791,000), Winners and Losers (646,000) and Million Dollar Minute (571,000). Autopsy was 236,000.

MasterChef Australia (1.08m) was best for TEN. The Project was 705,000 / 530,000, TEN Eyewitness News was 614,000, NCIS was 516,000 and NCIS: LA was 370,000.

ABC News was 861,000 for ABC then 7:30 (650,000), Joanna Lumley’s Trans-Siberian Adventure (584,000), Foreign Correspondent (567,000) and Wonders of Life with Brian Cox (337,000).

On SBS it was Dateline (195,000), Who Do You Think You Are? (179,000), Tour de France (175,000), Insight (156,000) and SBS World News (140,000).

Neighbours led multichannels at 248,000.

The Morning Show: 159,000 / 110,000
Mornings: 122,000 / 91,000
Studio 10: 58,000 / 38,000

  1. I watched no tv last night. If there’s nothing worth watching prior to 8.30pm than its less likely the tv will be turned on at all. Its a waste to air an Australian drama post 9.30pm.

  2. A Current Affair’s ratings have really lifted this year…..I truly can’t see why. Granted I never watch it because I think it’s complete rubbish but judging from the stories I see advertised in their promos it seems like the same old stuff they’re doing. So why the ratings increase? Am I wrong, has the quality of the show actually improved?

  3. I am still a regular Sunrise viewer but am becoming increasingly annoyed at how light they are on News now. They have totally ignored or just skipped over major stories and are doing very little finance. With a 3 hr. show they should be able to do it all like they use to. I will never become a Today viewer and don’t want hardcore news24 at that time of day but just want the old Sunrise back that had the balance better.

      1. Might I suggest you both record ABC News breakfast and watch it at your leisure?-No ads, much greater intelligence and you can FF through anything you don’t want to watch.

  4. Hey David, just noticed a typo. MasterChef wasn’t 1.8 million last night, but 1.08 million. I would be great to see MasterChef get 1.8 million and over since it’s near finals week.

      1. I agree they might be the lowest ratings, but 7 seem to treat all dramas with lack lustre programming decisions. Packed to the Rafters having mid season breaks. All Saints suffered rating late after DWTS was on Tuesdays and they are just the recent ones I remember. Note to networks put Dramas on at 8:30 and people will watch them. Hopefully Timeshifting improves, but overall it isn’t a good overnight figure!
