Seven wins Thursday as My Kitchen Rules claims timeslot

Ratings: Bon appétit. Seven has its first nightly win of the ratings year.

Thursday offered some good news for Seven with My Kitchen Rules managing to win its timeslot.

As the only Reality show in its slot, the show drew 517,000 viewers. While that equalled its best audience so far, it’s not a particularly strong number for the timeslot.

  1. Massive Transformers fan (who drives a Decepticon car and rides an Autobot motorbike…seriously!) here, but TF:TLK is one of the worst movies of the last 20 years. The only way to make it even worse was to add commercial breaks. I am so sorry to the 231,000 people who endured that.

      1. David : Yeah, we’re Whovians and we iView it ASAP because the FTA showing is a whole couple of days later. (Loving the current season, incidentally). I wonder if the ratings would improve if ABC chucked it on FTA quickly like Nine do with Survivor…
        aesthetic : How very true. Just look at MAFS.

  2. I enjoyed Survivor Winners at War, gonna be a ln interesting season. Wonder if Ten would ever consider a US v Aus season, possible as a first season in 2021 as can’t imagine another all stars season. That would be interesting. Or even Survivor: World War with contestants from all countries with a local version.
