TEN’s Bachelorette is off to a good start, landing second in its timeslot with 875,000 viewers. Last night the show topped the demos and trended at #1 on Twitter. It looks like audiences aren’t only just keen for a fairytale ending for Sam Frost -but to marvel at the wonders of Aussie blokes in a pack mentality.
Less successful was the debut of Scream Queens -at 319,000 it was unable to benefit from its lead-in. Even fewer followed on ELEVEN, but it suggests that TEN may be right to slate this as a multichannel show.
X Factor won its timeslot for Seven on 953,000 as Simon Cowell helped choose the top 12 -the lucky dozen will be told tonight.
Gruen cut through the 8:30 offerings for ABC well ahead of a thinly-constructed Celebrity Apprentice. Nine fared better with Nine News and Today, both winning their timeslots.
Seven network won with 29.1% then Nine 25.0%, TEN 20.4%, ABC 19.4 and SBS 6.1%.
Seven News (980,000 / 955,000) was best for Seven then The X Factor (953,000), Home and Away (791,000), Pets Make You Laugh Out Loud 2 (644,000) and The Chase (564,000 / 424,000). Britain’s Busiest Airport: Heathrow was 242,000.
Nine News topped the night with 1.02m / 1.01m. Next for Nine were A Current Affair (881,000), The Block (753,000), Celebrity Apprentice (555,000) and Hot Seat (554,000). World’s Biggest Pets was 301,000.
The Bachelorette has launched to 875,000 for TEN. The Project was 685,000 / 453,000, TEN Eyewitness News was 518,000 and Scream Queens debuted with 319,000 -only 152,000 followed the show to ELEVEN for a second episode.

On SBS it was Great Continental Railways (343,000), 24 Hours in Police Custody (177,000), Bosch (153,000) and SBS World News (148,000).
Shaun the Sheep showed up multichannels with 277,000 for ABC2.
