World Cup leaves Footy Show behind

Ratings: AFL Footy Show is battling against Seven's Front Bar, and then along comes FIFA World Cup.

Last night MasterChef House Rules were neck and neck, while Gruen, The WeeklyFIFA World Cup ruled thereafter.

But Nine’s AFL Footy Show was again defeated by Seven’s Front Bar.

MasterChef  managed a razor-thin win over House Rules at 810,000 and 806,000, respectively. TEN’s show topped the demos. Young Sheldon followed at 596,000 as the higher of 2 episodes, narrowly ahead of Home Delivery.

Gruen‘s 758,000 increased on last week, as Seven & Nine switched to split schedules. The Weekly was also up.

Nine’s Footy Show was defeated nationally by Front Bar, including in Melbourne at 134,000 to 191,000 respectively. Thankfully Nine had Britain’s Got Talent in other cities to rise above Seven across the hour, but the brand remains troubled and that’s without factoring in the Sydney edition.

  1. The AFL Footy Show was very relevant for the teams ect many years ago before they released them online, to me it is outdated and plus it doesn’t come on until very late so rarely watch….

    The Front Bar is far more simple and genuinely funny, I dare so a lot less to produce without the variety element that the Footy Show goes with….

    I remember that 7 tried to copy the Footy Show in the late 90’s to get the ratings and something different and simple had done the job…..

  2. I really enjoy the Front Bar, so i’m wrapped to see they are beating the Footy Show. I want to say thanks to David also for keeping us informed regarding ratings for the two shows.

  3. David…Thanks for Front Bar/Footy Show figures. Always interested to see how they go against each other in Melbourne. I’d prefer Front Bar, but of course, that’s only my opinion. Others may differ.
