Seven will be grateful House Rules did so well last night.
It’s 1.02m viewers will help make up for the awful 383,000 by Kiss Bang Love. Losing 637,000 viewers from one show to the next is programmer hell. At three outings now, it’s clear viewers have not connected with the brash title and simple format.
But Seven was not alone in disappointing news. Nine’s 20 to One fell from 759,000 to 645,000 this week, which in turn impacted on Britain’s Got Talent. It had been increasing with each week but the softer lead in saw it drop to 624,000.
The news was good for TEN with MasterChef winning its slot with 1.05m. It was the top non-news show of the night and topped all three demos. TEN even managed to beat Nine.
Seven network won with 29.7% then TEN 24.7%, Nine 23.0%, ABC 15.3% and SBS 7.2%.
