Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Seven slumps into second place

No House Rules and Seven was beaten by The Voice  (1.860 million national/ 1.323 million metro/ 537,000 regional viewers), meaning Nine won easily in the metros. In the regionals it was closer. Seven had the tiniest of margins in All People, but Nine won the main channel battle. And Nine clearly did better in the demos. However, The Voice is now a fading shadow of itself, down around a million viewers from the start of this series. Still it did more than enough to win last night for Nine, helped by a weak line up from Seven — so weak that ABC1 rated better in the key Melbourne market last night than Nine’s main channel.

The ABC’s strong Monday night news and current affairs line-up pushed Ten back to fourth in metro and regional markets, even as MasterChef Australia did OK for Ten with 1.452 million national/1.074 million metro/ 378,000 regional viewers. MasterChef Australia and The Voice have both lost appeal in regional markets.

Nine’s Today had another miserable morning with just 247,000 metro viewers — almost 100,000 behind Seven’s Sunrise on 341,000. The Tour d’ France again lifted SBS’s share, even though the broadcast didn’t start until 10pm. It had an average of 272,000 national viewers until the race ended after 1am. Nine News again won the 6pm battle with Seven News Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in the metros — the Melbourne margin was a huge 126,000.
