Australian Open wins TV battle over Celebrity, MKR.
Ratings: Djokovic v Thiem pulls 1.52m viewers with MKR landing third behind I'm a Celebrity finale.
The Australian Open Men’s Final pulled 1.52m viewers to top the ratings last night.
The win by Novak Djokovic was down slightly on 2019’s final of 1.59m, but still delivered Nine a huge share 45.9% share. The presentation averaged 962,000.
I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here averaged 803,000 viewers for the bulk of its finale, rising to 884,000 for the moment Miguel Maestre was crowned as winner.
My Kitchen Rules was third in the battle at 498,000 viewers. That was the lowest ever launch for the series, down considerably from 816,000 last year. But it was a gamble for Seven to launch the show against the Men’s Final this year.
Tonight is the real test for all networks with the return of Married at First Sight and Australian Survivor.
Elsewhere Insiders returned to 292,000.
Full ratings analysis resumes next week.
