While all the attention has been on Nine’s faltering titles of late, TEN’s new reunion series Long Lost Family is yet to build a sustained audience.
It began with 564,000 viewers last month and last night averaged 453,000. While the show is arguably a placeholder before the might of MasterChef begins, it’s going to need better numbers if it wants longevity.
Last night MKR again dominated, up from last Wednesday’s 1.25m. ABC’s Home Delivery The Weekly hand Luke Warm Sex all enjoyed modest lifts while Nine’s ACA was well ahead of its post-Easter outing a week ago.
Seven Network won with 33.2% then Nine 25.1%, ABC 17.7%, TEN 15.8% and SBS 8.1%.
