Mornings beats The Morning Show

Nine’s Mornings, hosted by Sonia Kruger and David Campbell, has beaten Seven’s The Morning Show for the first time.

Mornings pulled 141,000 to The Morning Show‘s 134,000.

It was the first time since 2008 that Nine has won the timeslot against Seven, nationally.

It’s also believed to be the first loss for The Morning Show in regular programming.

Kruger and Campbell launched the show in February after Kerri-Anne Kennerley was dumped by Nine last year. Both had previously had hosting stints on Seven’s morning shows.

Meanwhile TEN’s US show The Talk may be cheaper to produce than The Circle, but at just 13,000 even Breakfast rates higher.


  1. “Mornings”is exceptional, it is bringing variety and comedy back to television (sandwiched between the advertorials of course). It is so far above “The Morning Show” which still is a poor man’s breakafast show. What Nine has with “Mornings” is two entertainers,as opposed to people seconded to this world from the news room.Campbell is a showman and television hasnt really seen that since the days of Kennedy and Lane. If Nine can hang on to him, he will be the beginning of the return of TV variety, now bring on the nightime Tonight show for him.

  2. I have watched the breakfast highlights for the past 2 weeks and i actually enjoy them. Paul is slowly gettin his mojo and kath great! The biggest problem would be the cheap as set! Looks like it took 1 min to put together and seeing all ten;s crap in the background is not appealing at all. They need a proper sophisticated set.
    Those figures for talk are ridiclous!! Ten has lost it’s mind.

  3. Ten hang your head in shame!!!
    A great show The Circle is so sadly missed
    Good one JW and still that overpaid under rating Kiwi lives on to lose them even more viewers

  4. Congrats to Nine’s Mornings for finally beating Seven’s The Morning Show. It may be a once off, but it’s always a good thing to finally beat the hoodoo (ratings).

    Those ratings on Ten are quite shocking. I am still wating for Ten Management to realise their mistakes and say ”they screwed up” with axing The Circle. The numbers for The Talk speak for themself. Terrible!

  5. Last Night I was watching ACA and saw a report by Tom Steinfort..and the start he said he was 28. I thought he hardly looks 28 so did a little research.

    In 2010 he was nominated for Cleo Bachelor of the Year and said he was 28 back in 2010.

    Then I read a report on Tv Tonight that in 2009 (at aged 24) he covered the Michael Jackson death.

    So how old is he? Gee if your lieing about your age in your late 20’s your in real strife.

    So is he 27, 28 or 30?
