Burst from Big Bang, Kath & Kim upstaging Seven.

Ratings: Ouch. Old Kath & Kim eps -produced by Seven- rate higher for Nine, than what Seven offers at 7:30pm.

The Big Bang Theory eclipsed the magic million last night, pulling 1.02m viewers for Nine, its highest episode all year.

That was enough to beat 800 Words which lifted to 624,000 this week, plus NCIS and Catalyst.

The Block continued to power for Nine at 1.34m viewers, more than double its competition, Australian Survivor, 7:30, First Dates and Secrets of our Cities -all were down on last week.

Comedy fired for Nine with decade-old Kath & Kim reruns even ahead of what Seven could offer at 7:30pm. That’s gotta hurt given Seven produced the very same episodes back in 2007.

Seven News, The Chase and A Current Affair all won their slots.

Nine network easily won Tuesday with 33.6% then Seven 24.8%, TEN 19.1%, ABC 14.9% and SBS 7.5%.

The Block was #1 for Nine with 1.34m then The Big Bang Theory (1.02m), Nine News (977,000 / 973,000), A Current Affair (832,000), Kath & Kim (563,000 / 508,000) and Hot Seat (466,000 / 267,000).

Seven News (985,000 / 939,000) was best for Seven then Home and Away (712,000), 800 Words (624,000), The Chase (555,000 / 354,000) and First Dates (526,000). Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares USA was 225,000.

Australian Survivor (595,000) led for TEN then The Project (553,000 / 324,000), TEN Eyewitness News (428,000), NCIS (340,000), NCIS: LA (300,000) and Family Feud (273,000).

On SBS it was Insight (302,000), Secrets of our Cities (271,000), Dateline (138,000) and SBS World News (137,000).

Shaun the Sheep showed off to the tune of 201,000 on multichannels.

    1. So agree!!
      Loved K@K the first time around and am enjoying it just as much now.
      One of the very few shows I have ever watched more than once.
      Still hilarious all these years later – my favourite ep is last week’s where the girls keep it classy at the race track Derby Day and Damien, the jockey cracks onto Shazza.
      The characters and scenarios are pure gold and still relevant today.

  1. A person I know commented to me last night that they were perplexed as to why 10 could air a new episode of NCIS LA that aired 2 days ago in the US after a repeat of NCIS when a new episode was available that aired a week ago in the US. The word is spreading about #strangedecisionsmadebyten.

    1. Ten were obviously waiting for Survivor to finish so they could air NCIS uninterrupted instead of airing two episodes, taking it off for the Survivor finale and then bringing it back again.

      1. I’m done with excuses about ten’s poor behaviour. I’m done with excuses like reality trumps drama. They ran a promo stating NCIS would begin 26th Sept and took it back. That was wrong and making excuses just continues to enable them. I won’t do that.

    1. Deliberate ploy to boost ratings after The Block. Happens all the time. Even if BBT is adjusted below a million everyone is still going to see it was over a million in unadjusted overnights. BBT also probably higher than usual due to lack of options elsewhere and starting half way into shows on other channels.
