TEN has made the surprise programming decision to no longer simulcast Family Feud on its multichannels.
As of last night it returned MASH to ONE and Frasier to ELEVEN at 6pm.
This marks the first time since the show’s 2014 launch it has seen any broad differentiation (there were occasional switch-ups where Live sport intervened).
Last night it pulled 346,000 viewers on the single TEN channel. On Mondays so far this ratings year it has been averaging some 411,000 viewers over the three channels.
But the upside is it pulled 55,000 for Frasier and 40,000 for MASH.
It’s not clear what prompted the move after nearly 3 years of simulcasting. In the past TEN has indicated the 3 channel roadblock “just works.”
