Everyone’s a winner babe, in Tuesday ratings.

There was some sunshine for almost all broadcasters last night, although a new reality show did it tough.

There was good news, sort of, for almost all broadcasters last night.

  1. The highlight of my night was Nine News… with the footage of a driver in an SVU…driving backwards on a road in the Gold Coast…he negotiated traffic by changing lanes backwards and even managed a roundabout backwards…😂 ”truly baffling and extraordinary” as the news readers said…the kids in the car following were having a good chuckle to witness it too..apparently he hasn’t been reported to the police yet…but I’ve no doubt someone on socials who saw it will.

  2. Even with Million Dollar Island in ratings limbo, Seven topped the overall ratings. Nine is a one trick pony with MAFS being the signature dish and everything else failing to cater to the masses.

    1. Seven’s multichannels got them over the line. I often see 7TWO rise when viewers aren’t happy with what’s on Seven. My sense is older viewers bristle at some of the reality, and go to some lovely warm British stuff, but at least they stay in the 7 ecosystem. Nine has big ‘book ends’ for its TV year with MAFS and Block. In the middle is more competitive.

  3. Blow Up has finished so 7Whatever has a spot to fill. I did say that no one was interested in these type of shows after all the overkill lately, but I didn’t expect it to be this much of a stinker.

  4. Channel 7 with yet another dud reality show ratings wise – Million Dollar Island is too long and convoluted for my liking, I gave episode one a try but I didn’t come back for a 2nd helping last night.
    Masterchef in comparison – still a proven reality show format, another solid group of likeable contestants this year and a judging panel far superior to the original 3 – which makes what happened to Jock all the more upsetting.

  5. Million Dollar Island episodes just too long, 1 hour 45 minutes last night, a lot of it could be edited down or out completely too, as David mentioned in his review why show all 6 throwing their wristband in the bowl, just show us them all already done. Be interesting to see what 7 does, an expensive experiment especially with a million dollar prize and all the promotion that has occurred.

      1. Million Dollar Island looks like quite an expensive show, even just taking into account the number of bodies on camera.

        David, if these ratings persist or drop further, do you feel Seven will move it off the primary channel or to a late night timeslot? Can Seven afford to do that with such an investment?

      2. True, I forgot I think they said something like the final 3 will have a chance to win their share if the million dollars, so maybe they will battle it out for however many bracelets they have, so might be a couple of hundred thousand.

      3. Usually with these evictee give somebody their share of the prize formats when it gets down to the final 2 they just win what they’ve personally been gifted.

        Anyhow, predictable flop. Only surprise is it dropped even more than I thought it would.

  6. I think the worst thing by far about MDI is the host. He’s shocking. They imported this guy? Whereas with The Summit, the host was the best thing about the show. They should have auditioned hosts for MDI.

  7. Million Dollar Island will probably be moved to 7Flix by the weekend on those numbers. I don’t think it’s harsh or unreasonable at all to call it Million Dollar Flop either.
