MasterWeek as TEN wins the ratings

By David Knox on July 25, 2010 / Filed Under News 14

Network TEN has won the ratings week, it’s first in a year, thanks to a certain cooking show.

It pushed Nine into second place and Seven to third.

TEN won Week 30 with a 27.2% share over Nine’s 26.0% and Seven’s 25.1%. The ABC had 15.6% and SBS 6.0%.

In primary shares TEN romped home with 26.0% over Nine’s 22.1% and Seven’s 22.0%, ABC1′s 13.7% and SBS ONE’s 5.6%.

In digital channels GO! had 3.9%, 7TWO 3.1%, ABC2 1.3%, ONE 1.2%, ABC3 0.6% and SBS TWO 0.5%. There is no share for ABC News 24 yet.

TEN won all three key demos 16-39, 18 – 49 and 25-54.

TEN was first on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday. Seven won Monday, Tuesday, Friday while Nine took Saturday. TEN was victorious in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, while Nine was dominant in Sydney and Brisbane (TEN was third in the latter).

MasterChef dominated the TV landscape in Week 30, averaging almost 2.44m viewers for Monday – Thursday. Even the (hilarious) Masterclass episode pulled 1.88m viewers.

Interestingly, TEN’s last weekly win was for the MasterChef finals week in 2009, when it was #1 across all 6 nights but its season launch of Rush saw a big drop and a weekend replay added in. The same thing happened this week.

    I asked for Tangle numbers earlier today.

    Tangle didn’t make top 100 for Pay Tv. Good results for Antm.

    Recipe for COPYING COOK (not Master Chef):

    1. take two nervous (male) novices (cooks not qualified chefs),
    2. require them to COPY a sugar loaded dessert recipe,
    3. over 3+ hrs (who in the ‘real’ world would have such time or inclination?), and
    4. serve two portions each to 4 (noticeably expanding waist lined) male judges.

    Congrats ten… you deserve it… but get ready to battle for 3rd and possibly 4th when MC is over.

    What did Big Brother used to rate before MasterChef?

    Or the last Olympics I suppose ;-)

    Good one Ten, no show in recent memory has captured Australia’s imagination quite the way MasterChef has …. those incredible ratings six nights in a row haven’t been seen since black and white transmission!

    TEN just needs MC to run for all the ratings weeks to win!

    Ch10 can go back to sucking after tonight.. :P

    Wow, good on ten.

    If only they could keep it up throughout the year

    7PM project managed an average of over a million viewers over a 5 day period. Is this the first time it has happened (other than the launch week)? It will be very interesting to see how 7PM Project goes now that Masterchef is over.

    Check this post later tomorrow they will be added.

    Check last Sunday’s ratings wrap and they were added on the Monday as promised.

    Check any previous ratings week in the Ratings Archive and read the weekly wrap and you will find them. See Week 29, 28 etc.

    It’s not ideal I realise, but for archival purposes I want all the same week collated together. I do FTA ratings on Sundays, once the Pay figures arrive on Monday I go back and edit them in. You can always find them via the Ratings Archive by clicking on the preceding weeks.

    “Criminal Minds-Mon Seven 1,215,000″ wow!

    “Pay TV ratings will be added tomorrow.”
    This is added to the end of most of the ratings posts, yet I have not seen any paytv ratings listed on the site for many months now.
