Take Me Out in lukewarm debut for Seven
Ratings: Dating show is fourth in its slot, Neighbours wedding gets modest lift. Nine wins Monday.
Seven’s new dating show Take Me Out has landed fourth in its timeslot with 604,000 viewers.
The Block dominated the slot and the demos with a big 1.07m viewers, with ABC second with a combo of 7:30 high at 739,000 and Australian Story on 694,000. Australian Survivor was next at 640,000.
A note sent by Seven maintains the timeslot was up 173% based on last Monday (frankly just underlining how dismally Dance Boss did) and that the episode has been available online since last week.
Have You Been Paying Attention? won its slot with 774,000, if down on last week’s 801,000. Doctor Doctor and Four Corners followed with Seven’s combo of 9-1-1 / Ramsay next in various cities.
