The Masked Singer has again pushed 10’s primary channel ahead of Seven for the night.
The Block scraped over the line at 7:30 with 844,000 viewers just ahead of The Masked Singer at 839,000. 10’s singing show rose to 1.01m for the moments Paulini and Deni Hines were revealed and also topped the demos.
Both were correctly guessed by judges last night (Jackie O and Lindsay Lohan, Dannii Minogue respectively). In case you forgot, TV Tonight tipped Deni Hines back in August when The Masked Singer was merely an on-air promo and well before any clues had been released….
Trailing them were 7:30 (497,000), Bride & Prejudice (406,000) and Foreign Correspondent (386,000).
A behind the scenes Masked Singer Unmasked special also won its later slot with 617,000, defeating Catalyst (348,000), Secret Bridesmaids’ Business (302,000) from 9pm) and Love Island (285,000).
Nine Network won Tuesday with 28.4% then Seven 23.5%, 10 23.4%, ABC 15.2% and SBS 9.6%.
Nine News drew 833,000 / 766,000 for Nine then A Current Affair (721,000) and Hot Seat (432,000 / 270,000). Botched was 201,000.
Seven News won its slot at 891,000 / 854,000 for Seven then Home and Away (570,000) and The Chase (520,000 / 328,000). The Proposal was a dismal 120,000.
The Project was 466,000 / 264,000 for 10 then 10 News First (333,000), NCIS (225,000) and Celebrity Name Game (182,000).
ABC News (602,000), Kumi’s Japan (253,000) and The Drum (148,000) also comprised ABC’s night.
On SBS it was Building Britain’s Canals (270,000), Insight (231,000), Dateline (186,000) and SBS World News (148,000).
Suggesting that viewers were unhappy with primary channel choices, Death in Paradise on 9GEM led multichannels at 144,000 at 7:30.
News Breakfast: 121,000 / 39,000
