It’s like a red flag to viewers that the show is thin with those who are public-figures and potentially thinner in terms of its entertainment value.
Last night two shows on two different networks returned middling results while viewers flocked to the unknown singers on The Voice, giving Nine the night.
Nine network was 34.8% then Seven 27.6%, TEN 16.4%, ABC 15.9% and SBS 5.3%.
The Voice led with another 2.02m viewers for Nine followed by Nine News (1.27m) and ACA (1.03m). But Celebrity Apprentice shed a truckload of its Voice lead in with just 808,000 for its Boardroom. Elsewhere Hot Seat was 677,000 and Two and a Half Men was 427,000.
Seven News (1.27m) was best for Seven then Today Tonight (1.15m), Packed to the Rafters (1.08m), Celebrity Splash was down on its debut (1.04m), Home and Away (894,000), Deal or No Deal (502,000) and the movie Bruce Almighty (281,000).
NCIS (731,000) topped TEN’s night. TEN News was 710,000, NCIS: LA was 592,000, The Biggest Loser was 539,000, The Project was 493,000 and The Simpsons was 383,000.
