Australian Survivor and Australian Idol both carve out season best figures. Nine wins Monday.

Australian Survivor is lifting for Network 10, reaching a season high on Sunday at 534,000 metro viewers then inching to 540,000 last night. The show is certainly keeping fans hooked with some tense tribal eliminations, last night turning on Shonee.

Nine network won Monday with 31.6% then Seven 25.8%, 10 17.7%, ABC 17.4% and SBS 7.4%.

    1. Oof that is a big call and I won’t yuck your yums … but nothing will top the daily watch of last year’s Sth African Survivor for me.

      I strongly suggest you give it a watch

  1. Aus Survivor is hitting all the right beats this year – and after a few duds years (All Stars, Brains/Brawn, Blood/Water) I’m coming around to Aus Survivor

    Don’t get me wrong, there are things that I kinda hate and will have my old man yells at cloud moment (the mixed newbie/returnee casting being the massive point), but this season is righting a ship that I though was long gone for myself and many other die-hard fans.

    I hope they keep up the trend in future seasons.

      1. I am moreso speaking to the quality of the product – I didn’t care for the last few seasons, even as a Survivor fanatic, I legitimately felt like not watching the Australian Survivor (and I know many who had that opinion of last season, who have come around on this season)

        Additionally, same-day viewership is up on last years Blood/Water season – and still climbing. So it’s not just a silly fan-boy take, but a business positive take too. I think and hope that Ch10 and the production team take the the right lesions (an excitable game-motivated cast with no overly silly twists playing the classic Survivor will make great TV)
