Big Brother’s two and a quarter hour launch episode helped propel Seven to its first Monday win since early February. That saw the competition lose audience share with Nine and 10 down approximately 2 points each week-on-week. By contrast, ABC and SBS posted increases.

Big Brother’s multi-coded launch that saw more viewers for the arrivals than the eviction compares to the 2020 season when the first episode had 853,000 for the arrivals, 862,000 for the bulk of the program rising to 931,000 for the first eviction.

Both LEGO Masters and MasterChef dropped from their launch episodes the previous Monday but were up on Sunday’s numbers.

Also on Seven, Home and Away posted a season high.

Meanwhile 10 Bold’s 5.2% share is its highest so far for the 2021 season – attracting the +40 year old audience.

Lego Masters beat MasterChef and most of the Big Brother season launch when the trio went head to head, but once Lego and MC finished, BB began to dominate. That and the big audience for the 6pm news (especially in Melbourne and Perth - hours before the 3-day lockdown ended) were the main reason Seven won the night.

Lego Masters and BB pushed MasterChef out of the top five in major demographics.

Both the live telecast and the replay of the Oscars on Seven were down on last year, reflecting the ratings drop in the US.

Masterchef nowhere to be seen in the key demos.

To be fair, BB took up 3 spots.

Which still makes it third and even beaten by the 6:30 news on 9.

Looks like Masterchef will stabilise around the 500K mark until the finals. Which is a shame because other than being a season with normal contestants it’s still the same from last season.

Lovely. Three spots for Big Brother!

Well yeah but my point is it wasn’t gonna appear in the demos with BB taking up three spots.

7 would have to be happy with that for BB, audience held well for such a long episode.

More importantly, it does well in the demos unlike DWTS.

But they REALLY need to reduce the duration. Less is more yet the programmers seem lazy and stupid.

How utterly ridiculous to split Big Brother 3 ways.

BB did ok but for a premiere that’s similar to MasterChef, so might be a close battle between the two.

I’ve always said it’s ridiculous for one show to be split like BB has done, but this has been going on for years and it’s not going to stop until the rules are changed.

The return of Big Brother helped Channel 7 win the night.
However, Lego Maters won in its 7:30 timeslot in all cities except Adelaide where it fell to Big Brother. Masterchef was ranked 2nd place in its 7:30pm timeslot in Melbourne, pushing Big Brother to 3rd spot.

The fact it dropped off at the eviction should raise alarm bells. It’s too long and people had enough.

In all honesty I don’t think that 14,000 viewers is much of a drop off at all across 2 hours and 15 minutes. I expected a bigger drop off but it mostly sustained it’s audience despite the length.

i interpreted the ratings the opposite way, only a 14k drop is very good audience retention for a 2hr15m premiere, 650k after 9:30 is a huge achievement these days.

I reckon Seven would’ve liked closer to last year’s launch figures, even though we’ve seen some big declines across the board this year, maybe at least DWTS numbers? However, yep, they would absolutely take those key demo numbers and Seven even won the key demo shares in network and main channel, plus total people - making Nine’s publicists work a bit harder with their release for the first time in a long time.

But at the same time, I’m sure Nine will still take Lego’s result being No. 1 entertainment and also narrowly leading 25-54. Interestingly, Nine said their network and main channel were still able to win the grocery shopper key demo (share%).

Only positive for MasterChef is it isn’t continuing to drop below 500k, loyal audience. Coming days and next week will be interesting for the networks indeed.

–

10 Bold and NCIS (sky high), first of that magnitude for quite a while, could also be indicative of some viewers still dissatisfied with the offerings on main channels, maybe Married viewers that haven’t taken a liking to any of them yet (BB at least should have a similar audience).

Lego Masters seem to have done well in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, while Big Brother succeeded in Adelaide - this is when you compare the numbers for these post 7pm shows against each other.

Was going to say - funny how Seven Melbourne silently won the news hour.
