ABC pushes TEN to fourth on Monday. Again.

Monday proved to be a struggle for TEN, once again beaten by the ABC, but this time without Four Corners, Q & A and Media Watch in sight.

The X Factor topped the night with 1.4m viewers, with Seven News (1.19m), Today Tonight (1.09m), Home and Away (1.01m), and Body of Proof (965,000).

The Big Bang Theory was 1.36m for Nine with Celebrity Apprentice (Challenge: 1.25m / Mon: 1.06m), A Current Affair (1.05m) ahead of Nine News (1.04m), then The Mentalist (1.00m) and CSI: Miami (619,000).

ABC News (860,000) was best for ABC1 followed by Australian Story (809,000), Targeting Bin Laden (808,000), and 7:30 (656,000).

Junior MasterChef‘s 602,000 was the best TEN could manage, followed by The Project (571,000), TEN News at Five (560,000), Undercover Boss (460,000) and Law and Order: SVU (314,000). Good News World was 154,000.

Housos (278,000) topped SBS ONE with Mythbusters (251,000) and Man Vs Wild (176,000) next.

Seven won the night.

    Amazing how quickly Ten has fallen in a heap. If Junior MC was on 7 it would be doing a million plus. If X Factor was on Ten it would be doing 700K. the brand is so badly damaged thanks to 2011 changes. It needs a regular major program success to turn things around and to build the network on. The pressure in on in 2012!!!! If Breakfast and YTT fails……ooohhhh boy!

  2. “Why has GNW not been canned yet? Seriously, how is the continued production of this program justified given its humiliating audience figures? Is it some kind of tax write-off for Ten?”

    Maybe Ten need it to fill their Aussie content quota?

  3. Junior Master Chef has well and truly bombed this year, I doubt whether it will make it onto the schedule in 2012. To use a cooking metaphor, stick a fork in it, it’s done.

    Seven won the night. Gee, it must have been by the smallest of margins looking at those figures. I couldn’t find anything worth watching and watched a DVD instead.

    As a viewer I hope the Ten Network leave those shows where they are as they usually start within 5 minutes of when they are expected and are reliably shown. Unlike Ch 10 shows in recent years with reality rarely ending on time so messing the other programmes up. Including destroying their audience figures. Because you have to be extremely interested to wait 20-40 minutes. So people go to another more reliable channel. Plus I like to see and hear the end credits (they usually show the start ) . You get that on the multi-channels which I love. Plus sometimes a well placed promo inbetween the end and the credits. Which is perfect. Unlike the main channels. Which invite you to flick over immediately with how they destroy the end credits.

  6. 10 needs to move shows like Dexter, Sons Of Anarchy, Supernatural, Being Human, American Horror and House back to the primary channel on monday and tuesdayand wednesday nights because at the moment it looks like drunk monkeys have taken over programming !

  7. David you must be getting sick of typing “Seven won the night” LOL

    Why hasn’t TEN dumped GNWorld yet? GNWeek used to be a top show, put has become a smut fest of late, not really suited to 8:30pm where it used to live.

  8. I imagine it will only get worse in 2012 for Ten.
    With the AFL gone you can expect a fall in audience share in Melbourne/Perth & Adelaide. The promotion of shows during the AFL would have provided a organic boost to most Ten shows.
