Ratings: Nine's drama sets itself up for a likely renewal, while multichannels give Seven the edge.

HH4 Ep 10208

An extended season finale of House Husbands last night finished with 847,000 viewers and plenty of love on social media, positioning it well for a possible fifth series.

But it was A Current Affair that topped the night with a mix of supermarkets, fraudsters and a look at the next potential suburb of Struggle Street.

Despite Nine winning the primary channels, Seven’s multichannels got them over the line to claim the night. The X Factor cleared the magic million with some good performances, ahead of two acts being culled tonight.

ABC’s line-up held well across the night, led by Australian Story‘s profile of singer Jenny Morris, while Have You Been Paying Attention? topped TEN’s night.

Seven network won with 29.7% then Nine 28.8%, ABC 20.4%, TEN 16.3% and SBS 4.7%.

Seven News (1.02m / 1.00m) was best for Seven then The X Factor (1.02m), Home and Away (811,000), The Chase (586,000 / 406,000) and What Really Happens in Thailand (523,000). How to Get Away with Murder was 187,000.

A Current Affair (1.14m) topped the night for Nine. Nine News (1.07m / 1.05m), The Block (999,000), House Husbands (847,000) and Hot Seat (584,000) followed. CSI was 246,000.

Australian Story (946,000) led for ABC then 7:30 (907,000), ABC News (867,000), Four Corners (865,000), Media Watch (754,000) and Q & A (608,000).

Have You Been Paying Attention? (586,000) topped TEN’s night. The Project was 549,000 / 403,000, TBL Families was 523,000 and TEN Eyewitness News was 494,000. Homeland was just 187,000.

On SBS it was Secret Life of the Cat (210,000), Worst Place to be a Pilot (174,000), Rise of the Machines (163,000) and SBS World News (121,000).

7TWO’s A Touch of Frost topped multichannels with 271,000.

  1. House husbands has to do a 5th season. It smashes it in the demographics and if it started at 8.30 would pull close to a million each week. It always adds well over one hundred thousand in the time shifted ratings because of its late start time.

  2. Hey David, just noticed that neither Supernatural or AHS made the top 20 in multichannels last night. Not suprising with all the cuts and intrusive advertising during AHS. How did they end up rating?

  3. I avoid ACA on principle because of their ads disguised as stories. I can’t believe they can get away with it. Surely a little on screen text in the corner could alert people that the segment they’re watching is in fact an ad. And can you imagine how many people don’t recognise they’re watching a paid endorsement

          1. I’ll take your word that these supermarket ones on aca are not paid endorsements but the aldi one last night really looked like one. When you see them highlighting upcoming catalogue items it really makes you wonder.

    1. Media Circus devoted almost all of their show a few weeks ago singing from the Aldi songbook. Air time devoted to Aldi on the show would have been worth more than all commercial network ads for a month combined. Seven is probably worst, spruiking “news” stories for businesses they have a finger in. But they do mumble a short disclosure now – sometinmes.

  4. Had the misfortune (not by choice) of sitting through an episode of a current affair with someone who wanted to watch it. My thoughts on the episode are
    1. Centrelink – you can trot out any story on that organisation but Centrelink now and always will be a horrible nightmare of an organisation to deal with if your are genuinely suffering and genuinely in need.
    2. Aldi- if that wasn’t a paid advertisement disguised as current affairs I don’t know what is.
    3. The block – pointless story about previous contestant real estate issues just to remind viewers that the block exists.

    Caught up on Sundays quantico ep. which was good. Let’s hope 7 sticks with it in a consistent day and time but that might be asking too much.
