Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Celebrity Splash foundering

Seven's Celebrity Splash is weakening, but it's not as bad as Ten's Can of Worms, which is dead on screen but the network has nothing to replace it with.

A predictable win for Nine,  thanks to the very solid combination of The Voice (2.716 million national/ 1.962 million metro/ 754,000 regional) and House Husbands (1.670 million national/ 1.155 million regional/ 515,000). That more than outplayed Seven with its weakening Celebrity Splash (1.232 million national/ 821,000 metro/ 411,000 regional) and Revenge (1.288 million national/ 898,000 metro/ 390,000 regional) with the latter again fading. Viewers are not too worried about Revenge any more.

And that was the night as Seven ended up a soft second, the ABC a solid third, Ten its usual weak fourth and SBS well behind. Seven was only really strong in Perth, where it won the night overall and the main channels. Seven finished ahead of Nine overall in Adelaide, but that result was reversed in the main channels. In regional areas Nine (through WIN/NBN) had a big win over a weak Seven (Prime/7Qld).
