Nine wins second ratings week

Nine has won its second ratings week of the 2019 survey, led by its Married at First Sight juggernaut.

The addition of Dancing with the Stars impacted My Kitchen Rules which sank to its lowest-ever figures. But 10 has struggled with a number of other shows.

There were also 3 new local dramas last week: Bad Mothers at 642,000, Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries (463,000) and The Heights (351,000).

  1. Seven’s worst start to a ratings season in well over a decade I think. No successful new series launches and huge audience declines for marquee series like MKR and Home and Away. What will Seven do to fix this?

    • Remember last year when Angus Ross said even our worst is better than their best? That sort of statement may well come back and bite him after this pretty average start to the year. MKR is well and truly cooked and House Rules isn’t on anybody’s radar, ever. They’re just lucky 10 is such a basket case at the moment which will keep the race tighter than it should be.

      • Nine still have Love Island coming to the main channel for the first time, plus The Voice (albeit an ageing show that becomes less interesting each year) and Ninja Warrior. Seven’s cupboard looks bare at worst, uninspiring at best when compared to Nine’s. Another Australia’s Got Talent just doesn’t seem to excite

        • Yes agree about Seven. All I can think of is House Rules which might just be their only hope. Nothing else seems to scream ‘promising’ for the rest of this year except AFL.
