Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Ten back to the bottom

Nine and Seven had the lion’s share of viewers, with Ten’s audience departing with the end of the Grand Prix.

Seven’s night, but Revenge again faded and let Nine move closer as its mid-evening local hit Love Child again did well. Revenge (8.45pm start) had 1.189 million national / 768,000 metro/ 421,000 regional viewers. Love Child  (8.49pm start) did better — it was watched by 1.636 million national/ 1.065 million metro/ 571,000 regional viewers. That four minute start difference is a joke.

But it was a “tentpole” kind of night with the two big reality programs dominating. Seven’s My Kitchen Rules lifted sharply from Sunday night’s weakness, adding 400,000 viewers to average 2.463 million national/ 1.651 million metro / 812,000 regional viewers. Nine’s The Block hung in there and averaged 1.848 million national/ 1.255 million metro/ 593,000 regional viewers — but that was down from Sunday night’s big audience for the reveal episode, which is on again next Sunday night.

And Ten? Well, as forecast, Sunday night’s Grand Prix-fuelled third spot was a one off — it was back to distant fourth last night behind the ABC. Ten’s metro share for its main channel was a low 8.1%, its regional main channel share was an even lower 6.3%. The rot continues. Secrets and Lies  — 453,000 national/ 317,000 metro/ 136,000 regional viewers. A good idea slaughtered by Ten’s weakness and the audience’s growing distrust. The ABC won with its usual line up of news and current affairs programs from 7pm. They did well, but have all done better in the past.
