That’s the way Tuesday shaped up for the commercial networks last night. Without Packed to the Rafters, Seven was more vulnerable to competition from its rivals and it didn’t help that viewers have been disappointed by The Mole. As it burrowed to fourth in its timeslot it impacted on the season launch of Winners and Losers.
Nine network share was 31.7% then Seven 24.3%, TEN 19,9%, ABC 17.0% and SBS 7.1%.
The Block (1.45m) topped the night for Nine then Nine News (1.36m), A Current Affair (1.18m), The Great Australian Bakeoff (1.12m), Hot Seat (753,000) and The Mentalist (421,000).
Seven News (1.36m) was best for Seven then Today Tonight (1.1m), Home and Away (923,000), Winners and Losers (798,000), Deal or No Deal (597,000), The Mole (555,000), How I Met Your Mother (523,000 / 420,000). Go On was just 177,000. Seven indicates a coding error in Brisbane saw Winners and Losers merged with a repeat and the number will be adjusted to 869,000.
Under The Dome improved without Packed to the Rafters, to lift to 1.02m for TEN. MasterChef was 773,000 then TEN News (693,000), The Project (618,000), NCIS: LA (499,000). The Simpsons was 388,000.
