On Saturday night TEN’s primary channel hit rock bottom.
It landed in fifth place behind SBS ONE.
It was also less than half ABC1.
SBS ONE 8.0%
TEN was unable to lift beyond the 462,000 it pulled for its 5pm News.
By contrast, SBS was on the rise with Tour de France (330,000) which kept numbers higher until late in the evening, and RocKwiz on 232,000.
TEN has recently leaned on the return of The Simpsons to help its Saturdays, back-flipping on its mantra that “What plays on ELEVEN, stays on ELEVEN” and shifting Before the Game to Thursdays.
The Graham Norton Show, hailed as a remedy for Saturdays, has now ended its season run.
This Saturday TEN will screen:
6pm The Simpsons rpt
6:30pm The Glee Project
7:30pm To Be Advised
8pm To Be Advised
8:30pm Movie: Star Trek (2009) rpt
11:05pm The Good Wife rpt
