Seven winners on Tuesday

By David Knox on August 14, 2013 / Filed Under News 12

2013-08-14_1026Tuesday was an easy win for Seven. While Nine won from 6-7pm, X Factor and Winners and Losers both ruled their timeslots against Nine’s reality night and no cricket in sight.

Seven network was 33.2% then Nine 24.5%, TEN 20.3%, ABC 16.9% and SBS 5.1%.

The X Factor topped the night with 1.55m for Seven then Seven News (1.24m), Winners and Losers (1.07m), Today Tonight (1.02m), Home and Away (1.00m), Deal or No Deal (516,000) and Movie: The Break Up (416,000).

Nine News was best for Nine on 1.3m viewers then A Current Affair (1.17m), Big Brother (895,000), The Great Australian Bakeoff (692,000), Hot Seat (641,000) but The Bible is now down to just 320,000.

Under the Dome (846,000) led TEN followed by MasterChef Australia (776,000), more good news for The Project (668,000), TEN News (655,000) and NCIS: LA (522,000). The Simpsons was 366,000.

ABC News (943,000) was again best for ABC1 then New Tricks (771,000), 7:30 (682,000), Foreign Correspondent (641,000), At the Movies (452,000) and Restoration Man (295,000).

Insight‘s gay debate was 244,000 for SBS ONE followed by Who Do You Think You Are? (227,000), World News Australia (214,000) and Dateline (137,000).

Seven News at 7: 124,000

    Maybe Nine should have moved Great Aust Bakeoff to 7pm like it did with Hamish & Andy. It is not really an 8.30 (or later) show.

    Out of interest, David, what were the numbers for Seven News at 7 for Perth? Given they’re going to the effort of doing a separate bulletin?

    Can someone explain to me why channel 10 would move under the dome (even if it is a one off?) when it is clearly making them strong on a Tuesday? Cannot understand the idiocy!!!

    Still good to see W&L maintain its 1 million plus viewers with its current X factor lead in. Plus H&A up to a million is a rare event for them.
    Seem like Cakes and Jesus is not appealing to viewers on 9.
    Also it seems Dome has lost people and will upset more when they schedule the Riches show in its slot.
    Even though I don';t watch it, good to see the Project improve. it seems like consistency is the key, yet networks do not always seem to agree.

    Yep, Jezza, thanks for the mention of Insight. I found it provocative but compelling and moving. We still have a long way to go it seems….Insight it such a great show. Thanks to David for always providing pointers to its content.

    I caught a few minutes of Seven News at 7 last night. It seemed to be mostly international news and supplementary stories that wouldn’t normally appear in the 6pm bulletin.

    Wonder if Ten can keep this momentum up after Masterchef ends?

    I watched Insight’s debate with my daughter (20s & straight, for the record) to gain a better understanding. It was good to see hear differing views without the usual name calling. I think it was more of a discussion than a debate, the young Asian couple expressed themselves well and showed great humanity. In a multicultural society, it highlighted just how hard it is for folk to be accepted for what they are especially away from their traditional cultures. The Sheik was quite adamant that this is not acceptable under Islam for men, but didn’t have an answer for women. The Catholic priest struggled to make a coherent argument and one of the Rabbis was sympathetic. It was an interesting show and well worth catching up on for anyone who wishes to gain a little more knowledge on this issue.

    If the Project could lift its Sydney numbers then it really would be doing great business for 10. I wonder why Sydney siders don’t seem to enjoy it?

    Nine will be wishing that Australia would be able to last the five days.

    i think the project is on too a comeback!

    even Jesus was made to wait for the essendon drug news.

    Home & Away won the 7pm timeslot, which it seems to do every Tuesday.
