Last night The Voice slipped under the 2m margin for the first time.
Preliminary OzTAM data indicates it pulled 1.93m viewers, a long way of its Blind Audition high of 2.8m -but still an outstanding result no matter how you carve it up. The show also ran 18 minutes overtime, meaning its numbers are expected to be adjusted to 1.91m.
Nine had a strong night thanks also to The Block (1.32m), Nine News (1.26m), ACA (1.18m).
Tricky Business also started late. While preliminary numbers are 940,000, it is expected to be adjusted to 744,000. Nine once again sent out a dubious Press Release on the figures claiming it “peaked at 1.91m viewers” knowing full well the show started late. Spin, spin, spin…..Elsewhere, Hot Seat was 642,000.
Seven News (1.42m) led for Seven then Revenge (1.35m), Today Tonight (1.17m), The Force (1.02m), Border Security (838,000), Deal or No Deal (773,000), Body of Proof (625,000) and The Price is Right (415,000).
TEN’s Masterchef pipped the magic million at 1.02m. TEN News was 721,000, Bondi Vet was 536,000, NCIS was 467,000, The Project 6pm was 450,000 and NCIS: LA was 440,000.
ABC News (991,000) topped ABC1 then Australian Story (698,000), Four Corners (651,000), 7:30 (643,000), Media Watch (587,000) and Q & A (581,000).
On SBS ONE it was Mythbusters (192,000), World News Australia (152,000) and Bite Me with Dr. Mike Leahy (150,000).
