House Rules closing in on The Voice
Ratings: Nine wins Sunday but the competition heats up without The Voice blind auditions.
Now that The Voice blind auditions are over, more viewers are tuning in for the House Rules “reveals.”
Last night Nine’s show won its slot on 1.3m viewers, but Seven was breathing down its neck with 1.24m and a win in younger demos. That left Masterchef, from 7:30pm, somewhat caught in the crossfire at 808,000. However when the “reveals” are absent on weeknights TEN usually picks up more viewers.
All three reality shows last night surpassed the Leaders Debate at 529,000 viewers (another 99,000 watched on News 24). Not even all of ABC’s audience stayed for the politics, following ABC News.
DNA Nation on SBS lost a little ground in its second outing.
Despite a dead heat in Primary channels between Nine and Seven, Nine network won Sunday with 30.2% then Seven 28.3%, TEN 18.8%, ABC 15.8% and SBS 6.9%.
The Voice (1.3m) led for Nine followed by Nine News (1.24m) and 60 Minutes (778,000). Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons drew 308,000, ironically following a 60 Minutes apology…
Seven News was #1 with 1.42m viewers then House Rules (1.24m), Sunday Night (615,000). Bones was 312,000.
MasterChef was 808,000 on TEN. Modern Family was 471,000 / 367,000, Bondi Rescue was 372,000, TEN Eyewitness News was 335,000, and Formula One was 293,000 in 3 cities (122,000 on ONE).
ABC News (792,000), Midsomer Murders (696,000), Australia Votes: Leaders’ Debate (529,000 / 99,000 News 24) and Compass (294,000) comprised ABC’s night.
On SBS it was DNA Nation (307,000), Rome’s Invisible City (284,000), SBS World News (199,000) and Uranium: Twisting the Dragon’s Tail (195,000).
ABC2’s Octonauts (237,000) topped multichannels.
