TEN’s decision to move Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation from Tuesdays to Sundays is proving tricky after its second week well behind 2009 averages.
It took 1.09m viewers, third in its spot behind Border Security / Air Ways (1.27m / 1.26m) and Twenty20 Cricket (1.24m) -but it fared better in the key demos winning all groups. TEN did win the night in its target demos 16-39 and 18-49.
Even with demo wins Your Gen is still a long way behind the figures it used to attract on Tuesdays: between 1.5 – 1.7m. Now the network looks to it as its broad entertainment Sunday show in place of live Reality. Last week Your Gen took 1.06m in Total People.
Nine had a comfortable win for the night, with just News, cricket and the Olympics -up to 916,000. GO!’s big 4.6% share was more than both SBS channels combined.
The Good Wife was still good news for TEN on 1.25m, winning its slot with Bones having to settle for 1.15m.
David Tennant’s swansong in Doctor Who was 840,000.
