TEN TEN Wood bang


TEN’s Bachelor finale scored its best-ever ratings last night as 1.48m viewers watched Sam Wood choose Snezana as his future romance. The bulk of the finale drew 1.23m viewers. Those figures improved on 1.37m / 1.03m in overnight numbers last year.

The show won the demos and was biggest in Melbourne, and was top-trending last night on Twitter. TEN won in primary channels but was let down by its multichannels and later programming, losing a pile of viewers after the show concluded.

Hot Seat has also drawn its first numbers above The Chase. In the end Nine won the night -even without The Block.

Nine network won with 27.1% then Seven 25.9%, TEN 25.2%, ABC 16.2% and SBS 5.6%.

Seven News (974,000 / 922,000) led for Seven then The X Factor (902,000), Home and Away (763,000), The Chase (546,000 / 407,000), and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares USA (444,000). An 800 Words repeat was 233,000.

OzTAM Overnights: Thursday 17 September 2015


  1. Just a question: was the Law and Order SVU episode that was shown straight afterward and billed as “new” actually new? Because I was pretty sure I’d seen it before…

  2. Ten’s ratings downfall is between 6 and 7.30pm. Why 9 and 7 get big numbers for news services is beyond me. I can watch ABC 24 in the commercial breaks to get the news. I still say Ten reality shows faired better when they launched them at 7pm. TBL got big numbers in this timeslot as did Big Brother. The other problem is ONE, what is it they are trying portray? They have a mis-mash of shows that seem to be poorly strung together. Now they have Diagnosis Murder during their daytime line up, WTF?? With the CBS array of programs at their disposal l would think they could make a great murder/mystery/thriller station.

  3. Channel 7 need new programers! Why did channel 7 decide to show all five ‘audition’ episodes in one week… it started at 1.506m and now down to 0.902m. It better lift its game or the risks with skyrocket!

    • The thing about programming is…. it’s always much easier to make those sort of claims after the event, rather than before. Everyone is a much smarter programmer in hindsight. That said, there’s nothing shabby with 902,000. Seven will be pretty happy.

  4. That Celeb apprentice figure is at least 30 minutes of Footy show overrun (well at least the NRL markets anyway – don’t know yet how much over the AFL footy show went for but at our place we recorded channel 9 from 8.30pm – 5am just to make sure we didn’t miss anything).
