TEN’s decision to hold off its Spelling Bee from Sunday to Monday has left it underperforming at the top of the week, but hoping to pick up ground tonight & tomorrow.
TEN finished fourth behind ABC in network shares, with its primary channel scoring under a 10% share. It was heavily overshadowed by the first Live show for The Voice, topping the night at 1.47m.
Both The Voice and Dancing with the Stars (707,000) were down on previous episodes despite being Live to air.
Nine won the night with 35.0% share then Seven 27.3%, ABC 16.8%, TEN 14.3% and SBS 6.6%.
Following The Voice for Nine was Nine News (1.46m). In an effort to massage end of year averages, 60 Minutes was erroneously coded into two titles (60 Minutes Late: 567,000 in 3 cities and 60 Minutes: 517,000 in 2 cities, totalling 1.08m). AD Kingdom and Empire was 338,000.
Seven News (1.37m) was best for Seven then Sunday Night (1.04m) and Dancing with the Stars (707,000). Bones was 382,000.
Gold Coast Cops (550,000) was the best TEN could manage. Modern Family was 528,000 / 491,000, Bondi Rescue was 479,000, TEN Eyewitness News was 457,000, CSI: Cyber was 338,000 and a Madam Secretary replay was just 168,000.
