In recent weeks Tuesday has been the network’s best performer. Last night it just scraped in front of the ABC but it could not rise above TEN Eyewitness News on 609,000.
While the network’s focus is on demos rather than Total People, it sought to put on a brave face of having “six of the top 20 programs of the night in people 25 to 54 and under 55s.” The best it could manage in 25-54 was #11 place for The Project. With other nights that are struggling to see content cut through, TEN is clearly pinning a lot on its fast-tracked shows as the answer to short-term prayers. We’ll all be better off if they are right.
Seven network won the night with a share of 32.8% then Nine 26.0%, TEN 17.9%, ABC 17.7% and SBS 5.6%.
The X Factor had 1.34m viewers as the night’s top show, then Winners and Losers (1.17m), Seven News (1.16m), Today Tonight (921,000), Home and Away (912,000), Million Dollar Minute (576,000), and Body of Proof (558,000).
Nine News (1.18m) was best for Nine then A Current Affair (938,000), Big Brother (923,000), Big School (794,000), Come Fly with Me (612,000), Hot Seat (591,000) and Big Brother Late Feast (293,000 in 4 cities).
TEN could not rise above TEN Eyewitness News (609,000), with The Project at 570,000, Sleepy Hollow was fourth in its slot at 524,000, Recipe to Riches also fourth at 481,000. The Simpsons was at 401,000 and NCIS: LA was at 356,000.
ABC News won its slot with 928,000. 7:30 was 766,000 then Rise of the Continents (625,000), Foreign Correspondent (596,000), At the Movies (368,000) and Restoration Home (297,000).
Who Do You Think You Are? (307,000) led SBS ONE then Insight (235,000), Dateline (180,000) ahead of World News Australia (169,000).
Neighbours topped multichannels with 343,000.
