Got Talent got ratings

By David Knox on June 6, 2011 / Filed Under News 5

Australia’s Got Talent broke another audience record last week, rising to just under 1.95m viewers -the sort of numbers Australian Idol was netting each week in its glory days, and before multichannels. In its fifth season the show is defying the odds, when shows normally pull softer numbers.

Week 23 was another win for Seven, boosted also by the premiere of Downton Abbey on a big 1.8m viewers. Nine News pulled out a powerful audience for Sunday night, just under 1.66m viewers, while MasterChef Australia continues to dominate TEN’s schedule, as high as 1.6m viewers. Despite being beaten at times, the show is still a strong performer in the changing TV landscape.

    why does Ten even bother with NCIS.The Bogan population aside who don’t know of the better alternatives elsewhere are the only people who watch.

    If I wanted to see fighting and violence in action I would walk past the worst high school in a rotten part of town and see the students beat each other up on the oval or on the field at lunchtime.

    Looks like 6.30 with George has fallen back outside the top 100 programs.
    It appears to have gone a bit soft.

    I’ve giving up on MasterChef this year & it seems i’m not alone. I don’t know what it is but it’s just not the same as the previous years, maybe i shouldn’t of watched MKR?

    It is strange seeing so many eps of masterchef in the top 10, when it is the same show. Codifying different episodes makes them look, good. Should Home and Away, 7pm and others all codify their episodes too?!?!

    Masterchef is quite a dull series, I don’t see why so many people watch it. I like seeing Ten succeed over Nein and (to an extent) Seven, but outside of their six night a week cooking show and NCIS, they barely have any series that rate above 700k. Even shows like The Good Wife have only increased their ratings when Masterchef has aired as a lead-in.
