The first big reality contest of 2022 started last night. Married at First Sight took out the win helping Nine to an easy win for the night. Australian Survivor ranked second at 7.30 for the new season while Seven’s short run The Voice Generations had a disappointing start ranking third. The key demos rankings were the same with MAFS and Survivor one and two while The Voice was 12th in 25-54.

Nine won all markets except Perth that was won by Seven. Nine won the key demos with 10 second and Seven a distant third.

Comparisons to previous years are difficult with none of the shows starting at this time last year. MAFS was the closest to last year’s start time of 22 February when 962,000 tune in; Australian Survivor last year started in July and debuted to 752,000 while The Voice on Seven last year started in August with 1.3 million.

Earlier, Seven News won at 6pm. At 7pm the return of A Current Affair had a narrow win while Home and Away’s premiere was third. ACA was down from last year when it returned with 781k while Home and Away last year had 597,000. The Project was fourth at 7pm with its second best result of 2022 – up on the equivalent night of 2021. The Project won all key demos at 7pm with ACA second.

The debut of Nine’s rebranded 5pm news in Perth had little impact on news numbers in the market.

Sunrise was just 4,000 ahead of Today at breakfast.

Modest figures for the season premieres of Australian Survivor and The Voice Generations.

I’m pleased Australian Survivor did reasonable well against MAFS. I also think Seven will be happy with The Voice Next Generation as a fill in program for this week only.

Panic stations at 7 with media reports this morning that they intend to outbid 9 fir tennis rights in 2 years. With Barty in the ascendancy and the special K’s doing so well it is the right time to have tennis in stead of cricket.
This version of the voice topical over kill by 7.
Yet the Winter Olympics will probably give them a boost.

News Breakfast taken a fall…

The 7:30pm numbers are quite interesting. Think the conventional wisdom was that the massive interest in Australian Open (particularly the massive finals weekend) would give MAFS a big boost. However, it hasn’t done that with its launch episode coming in lower than both the 2021 (though it started later) and 2020 premieres.

Australian Survivor’s launch also pulled lower numbers than the last season which launched around this time (ie; All Stars in 2020).

As for Voice Generations, there are two ways of looking at its numbers. On one hand, Seven might not be too concerned about how it went considering it’s a ‘filler’ series before the Winter Olympics takeover their schedule from this weekend. On the other hand though, it’s yet another disappointing beginning to the ‘TV year’ (a concept which shouldn’t exist but that’s a discussion for another time) for them. Yes, one day is not a trend (and that ethos applies to all three shows we’re discussing). However, the fact that Seven’s ‘TV year’ launch ‘tentpoles’ haven’t given them a strong start year-after-year should be a major concern - particularly because I doubt (though could be proven wrong) DWTS: All-Stars & SAS Australia will be strong competition for MAFS/Australian Survivor when they air after the Winter Olympics.

Going back to MAFS and Australian Survivor going forward, the spanner in the works about assessing their performance over the next few weeks is we don’t know how the Winter Olympics will/won’t affect the numbers both shows will attract. As such, we’re in for an interesting few weeks.

Tipping Point makes the top 20. Simple format, yet it draws me in.

The lacklustre H&A finale did little to attract viewers. No doubt the covid lockdown during filming would’ve played a key part in the storylines but it’s still a shame none of the more well known cast weren’t in the finale.

I wonder if many people switched off Survivor in the first hour. It dragged on initially but got a bit better towards the end. This is why they need to stick to 90mins max to make it a bit more exciting and not just stretch things out for the sake of it.

MAFS did well but could’ve launched bigger with all the promos during the tennis. Still doing well for a show in its 9th season.

Not surprised by The Voice. There just weren’t a lot of eyeballs on Seven over summer to promote it and it is clearly obvious filler. I don’t think it’s a smart decision by Seven to overkill the format, they wouldn’t want to damage the normal season.

Where are you reading this?

The Survivor v MAFS demo numbers are interesting - 18-49 and 16-39 Survivor outperforms MAFS in most cities other than Sydney.

The voice was a bad choice to start the year with. The cricket would have very little value in its promotion. Completely different demos. Should have had mates on a mission or SAS ready for February. The voice could be used after the Winter Olympics.

Not a good start with The Voice Generation. But lucky its only on for 3 nights. Then its the Winter Olympics for two weeks. Its not like Seven can start a long term reality series for one week, then take it off for 2 weeks for the games. And its not the ratings season anyway

Genuinely surprised that the Voice fell to 3rd place, was expecting much better figures though I have to be honest I was also perplexed by how successful it was last year - lighting in a bottle perhaps…

Australian Survivor I thought launched relatively well, would’ve liked it to be stronger but purely on recollection it’s better than what 10 launched with last year? (I can’t even remember what they launched the year with in 2021).

Amazing Race Australia.

That’s right… which did alright from memory around the 500k mark pretty consistently throughout its run?

Yes premiere had 501k and it stayed around that while Seven launched that year with Holey Moley - started with 938k and ended with 319k. MAFS usually increases across the season.

Talent shows featuring children have generally performed poorly in recent times. Not surprised this iteration of the format isn’t replicating the success of last year.
