SBS beats out The Biggest Loser: Transformed
Ratings: Reality hits TEN where it hurts, with another season low for TBL. ABC also struggles with its hard-hitting combo.
TEN has suffered the humiliation of The Biggest Loser: Transformed now landing 5th in its timeslot.
At another season low of just 289,000 viewers it was beaten by Great Continental Railway Journeys on SBS with 327,000.
Last week Beverley McGarvey said judging the show on one night of numbers was premature but the network is in for weeks of pain if it doesn’t address its performance, pronto. The question is: with what? There are no easy solutions when an entire strip fails as Reno Rumble and Restaurant Revolution have shown…..
Once again it was smothered by Married at First Sight and My Kitchen Rules while Travel Guides hit a season high over the finale of 800 Words.
But TEN was not the only story from last night’s numbers. ABC’s double of Life on the Line and Bullied also did not attract enough viewers, sending its share backwards.
Nine managed a primary channel win but Seven network won Tuesday with 31.7% then Nine 31.2%, TEN 17.2%, ABC 13.6% and SBS 6.2%.
My Kitchen Rules (1.12m) was best for Seven then Seven News (1.05m / 1.02m), Home and Away (768,000), 800 Words (681,000) and The Chase (624,000 / 402,000). Bones was 237,000.
Married at First Sight was #1 for Nine with 1.19m viewers then Nine News (1.02m / 1.00m), A Current Affair (847,000), Travel Guides (691,000) and Hot Seat (490,000 / 279,000). Schwarzenegger The Celebrity Apprentice was 140,000.
TEN Eyewitness News (501,000) was best for TEN then The Project (498,000 / 303,000), NCIS (371,000), Family Feud (340,000), NCIS: LA (316,000) and The Biggest Loser: Transformed (289,000).
ABC News (728,000) and 7:30 (504,000) led for ABC followed by Todd Sampson’s Life on the Line (317,000), Bullied (264,000) and Foreign Correspondent (246,000).
On SBS it was Great Continental Railway Journeys (327,000), Insight (238,000), Dateline (159,000) and SBS World News (127,000).
Shaun the Sheep sure is irresistible to multichannels at 261,000.
The Morning Show: 128,000 / 89,000
Today Extra: 114,000 / 74,000
Studio 10: 90,000 /
