It’s a soft start for TEN’s Pilot Week experiment but plenty of raw feedback was on offer last night for execs.
Skit Happens was largely given the thumbs down on social media and drew 350,000 viewers. In a tough timeslot it progressively lost viewers over its 30 minutes duration. Disgrace! was received better with online comments but with a low lead-in it was flat on just 229,000 viewers. TEN says all factors, including timeslots and competition, will be taken into account as it mulls their future.
The Block was again the top show of the night at 1.12m viewers, beating Little Big Shots, All Aussie Adventures and Grand Designs. Nine’s show again topped the demos.
The return of Rake was strong for ABC at 715,000, eclipsing 60 Minutes and Sunday Night, albeit with varying start times.
Seven News at 1.08m pipped Nine News on 1.03m.
Nine led in primary channel share but Seven network won the night with 32.5% then Nine 30.1%, ABC 17.3%, TEN 12.5% and SBS 7.6%.
