Viewers switched off Seven at 7:30pm last night in droves.
The Super Switch could only managed 308,000 viewers for Seven -fifth in its slot behind SBS. Most of the Home and Away audience did not even want to sample the show.
It’s a disastrous start for the network, which had pulled House Rules back to twice a week to accommodate it. The figure is half the number of the last Seven Year Switch season premiere in 2017.
The Voice tripled Seven’s audience with 1.01m viewers and led two demos. MasterChef Australia, which topped the younger demo, ranked second on 655,000. 7:30 followed on 501,000 then Who Do You Think You Are? with Kerri-Anne Kennerley at 393,000.
But earlier shows for Seven performed well while Andrew Denton helped to rebuild, ensuring the network held onto second overall. SBS was strong while ABC under-performed.
Nine network won Tuesday with 33.1% then Seven 25.5%, 10 18.5%, ABC 13.8% and SBS 9.1%.
Nine News drew 1.00m / 977,000 for Nine then A Current Affair (837,000), The Big Bang Theory (638,000 / 402,000) and Hot Seat (594,000 / 336,000). Timeless was 162,000.

The Project was 519,000 / 302,000 for 10 then 10 News First (424,000), Mr.Black (319,000) and Celebrity Name Game (274,000). An NCIS repeat drew 201,000.
