TEN’s very long week awaiting Bachelor in Paradise is only just getting started.
Last night its 7:30, 8:30 & 9:30 shows were last in their slot, behind SBS. Interest in Family Feud specials have twice trailed their daily edition, with not enough thought into distinct casting.
Married at First Sight continues to power to its finale tomorrow at a whopping 1.53m viewers, winning all demos and all cities. That was well up on last Monday’s 1.26m and half a million in front of MKR‘s 996,000. Australian Story and 7:30 followed, then Great British Royal Ships on SBS. All Star Family Feud languished at 204,000. But TEN would go lower still.
By 9pm Travel Guides enjoyed its best ever numbers at an impressive 811,000 ahead of Media Watch / Four Corners, The Resident and Michael Mosley on SBS. Law & Order: SVU drew a low 158,000 at 8:30, with 159,000 for the 9:30 edition.
At least the overall network share was up on Sunday. Fingers crossed for its new Show Me the Movie and Gogglebox combo on Thursday….
Meanwhile curiosity in Today show drama pushed it slightly ahead of Sunrise in the morning.
Nine News, ACA and The Chase all won their slots.
Nine network won Monday with 34.2% then Seven 30.7%, ABC 17.4%, TEN 11.3% and SBS 6.4%.
