The final of Australian Survivor All Stars helped deliver 10 are rare second place last night just ahead of ABC while Seven was bumped to fourth. Nine won the 5-city average with wins in all markets except Perth that was won by Seven. 10’s share was its highest so far this ratings period.

Married At First Sight was the top entertainment program with Australian Survivor scoring 944,000 for the winner’s announcement in preliminary numbers and 878,000 across the rest of the program. The reunion special was a good performer as well with 625,000. The program numbers were lower than the September 2019 season that had 923,000 but higher than the seasons before that. It was the highest rated Reunion special broadcast so far. The show manged to beat MAFS in two of the key demo groups.

Elsewhere, viewers appetite for news had not slackened with Seven on top in the 6-7 timeslot however by 7pm ABC was on top with Seven fourth behind A Current Affair and The Project.

Australian Survivor All Stars finally beat Married at First Sight in the demos. Overall it has been another successful season of Australian Survivor in terms of ratings. It not only took viewers from My Kitchen Rules but also curbed the ratings dominance of Married at First Sight (to some degree).
ABC’s current affairs line-up did well as usual. Seven slumped after 8pm.

Must be the first time in a few years that Married hasn’t won the demos. Good figures for Survivor, not as good as last year. It was a good season. Yes not as many flips as previous seasons but the game play was still there (albeit maybe not as exciting as other years). As a huge survivor fan I like to watch all facets and game plays as you need to be adaptable to different people. Its still a goal to one day play survivor myself.

It well and truly curbed the dominance of Married. And its a textbook move that 9 made a few years ago when they moved Married against MKR. It started off doing ok against MKR and then ended up dominating against it. Who knows if this same trend can happen with Survivor. Well played by 10. I know a lot here don’t like to congratulate Beverley but its been quite a successful move by her as well.

10 has done a great job by moving Survivor to the front of the year. To have Survivor Finale beating MAFS in two demos is nothing short of spectacular.

Weird that the top 3 shows on ABC News Channel (9am, 12pm And 3pm) are all the hours of news channel that are simulcast on ABC.

That seems too much of a co-incidence

Time corrected results for Survivor:

Winner’s announcement 984,000
Final 876,000
Reunion 624,000

The Survivor season averaged around 600,000 for the first 5 weeks then gradually grew until last week averaging 758,000. The average 7-day increase for the series was approx 80,000 per episode.


From 10

Network 10:

  • #2 network in under 50s and 25 to 54s, #1 in 16 to 39s and 18 to 49s.
  • Up 34% week-on-week.
  • Up 42% in under 50s week-on-week, 39% in 16 to 39s, 40% in 18 to 49s and 33% in 25 to 54s.
  • Up 66% compared with the same night in 2019.

The Project 7pm:

  • Biggest audience since January 2018.
  • #1 across its timeslot in under 50s, 16 to 39s and 18 to 49s, #2 in 25 to 54s.
  • Full hour: Biggest audience since January 2018.

10 News First:

  • #1 across its timeslot in under 50s and all key age groups.

From Nine:

The Nine Network was the winning network on Monday night across the 5 City with People 25-54 and Total People .

Married at First Sight was Australia’s No.1 program with People 25-54 & GS + Child.

Married at First Sight holds the Top 16 spots on OzTAM’s 28-day rolling VPM report.

Nine News received its highest rating weekday bulletin in more than two years. (5 City average audience of 1.214 million - previous highest was 1.250 million on December 4, 2017 ).

A Current Affair recorded its highest rating episode since April 8, 2019(Metro average audience).

Today achieved its second highest rating episode of 2020 (Metro average audience).

The increase in viewrs for Survivor didn’t really do much damage at all to MAFS audience. It will be interesting to see without Survivor as competition if MAFS then gets an increase tonight. It probably will as the last 2 episodes generally see a huge spike.

News numbers continue to be high with everything going on and overall there are def more people watching FTA.

With it looking very unlikely that survivor will air again this year it might be a good thing that ten then just go with a normal survivor season to open 2021 and have only one season per year to preserve the audiences thirst for the show.

There are separate rating entries for the ABC main channel versions.

Married’s audience is down an average of 213,000 per episode this year (so far) both overnight and consolidated numbers.

Still not a great position. Beaten by 4 and 4:30 news on 7. In the current climate you would be expecting a slightly higher position.

@TV.Cynic I know - exactly. Which is why it’s so odd that the most watched shows on abc news channel are actually the ones that are simulcast on abc

It seems like too much of a coincidence.

The 9am, 12pm and 3pm
Hours are available on abc too, but they are also the most watched hours on news channel.

You would think they would rank lower as anyone wanting to watch these shows can watch ok either channel. I can’t explain why the 3 most watched hours are ALSO the 3 that are simulcast on 2 Chanel’s

Still above 300k which is much more than they were getting.

Definitely. But I am not comparing it to what they were getting. I am saying in this climate you would be hoping for more.

A very rare poor performance for 7mate (under 2%, don’t think it happened once in 2018 its record year and only maybe once or twice the past year).

Sister channel 7flix looked comparatively better, 0.6% behind and ranked in the multi-channel key demos (Simpsons).

Are we looking at the same ratings? Last year MAFS was scoring 1.4 Million with ease. Sunday night commitment ceremonies were rating at 1.7 million and more sometimes. MAFS highest over night figure this year was 1,206,000 which is well down on 2019’s highest none final overnight figure of 1,685,000. Survivor has proved the show has developed an audience and can stand on its own two feet, people watch it regardless of it being overnight, consolidated or streamed. It is definitely a factor in MAFS’ drop this year, which is fantastic considering what figures TEN has been dealing with in this time slight for a number of years now when up against the block, MAFS, MKR ect.

If you want to talk year to year then Survivor’s audience is down too from last season. However my comment was not talking about year to year. I’m talking about the current seasons. The increase for the Survivor finale last night didn’t cause any drop in Married’s audience from previous week’s.

Do you think that has something to do with the fact more people are home than they were 7 days ago? And it is down … slightly :stuck_out_tongue:

And if you look at the demos for last week in the 25-54 demo married got 590k, 550k in 18-49 and 310k in 16-39. It lost 60k in the 25-54 demo 80k in the 18-49 and 70k in the 16-39 demo. So damage was definitely done.

The content on 10 at 6 was not at comprehensive as 9NEWS, felt like you needed to watch from 5pm to understand the bulletin or at least feel like you didn’t miss out on coverage or depth.

I feel like missing out on the bigger picture when watching 10NEWS especially at 6pm, so can understand why people are tuning out. Probably better to re-start the bulletin otherwise after 15 mins of COVID-19 it went to sport and weather…
