Ratings: 20 to One hits new low as MasterChef serves up best Monday of 2016

Nine’s rebooted clip show 20 to One hit a new low as it failed to find an audience in its new Monday timeslot finishing fourth at 7.30 with a metro audience of 593,000.

The show, hosted by Fitzy and Wippa, had debuted seven weeks ago on a Tuesday hitting a high of 804,000 for its third episode but was shifted last week to bolster Nine’s Monday schedule when The Briefcase failed to find an audience.

There was better news for Ten where MasterChef recorded its best Monday result of this season as California week continued. Together with Have You Been Paying Attention, it helped the network win over younger audiences.

Meanwhile, Seven was the most popular network with the highest total people share of 28.2% while Nine was second with 24.1% and Ten third with 21.8%. ABC also did well with 20.3% and SBS had 5.5%. Seven pipped Ten to win the 25-54 age bracket with Ten winning 18-49 and 16-39.

Seven News was the number one bulletin last night with 1,195,000 watching at 6pm and 1,122,000 at 6.30pm. Home and Away that followed averaged 772,000 with Highway Patrol lifting at 7.30 to 823,000. World Angriest managed 686,000 with the movie Bourne Identity bringing good late night numbers with 517,000. The Chase also did well in the afternoon with 758,000 and 470,000.

Nine News (1,095,000 and 1,093,000) and A Current Affair (936,000) made the top ten for Nine with Love Child next best for the network, steady on 737,000. Later, The Briefcase had 327,000 with Footy Classified on 162,000 in three AFL cities.

MasterChef topped the night for Ten with 1.17 million viewers with Have You Paying Attention? also a timeslot winner with 804,000. Earlier, The Project had 715,000 and 491,000 with Family Feud rating 596,000 and Ten Eyewitness News 557,000. Later, NCIS: New Orleans was steady with 298,000.

There were mixed results for ABC with ABC News (837,000) and 7.30 (771,000) best on the night for the public broadcaster. Four Corners was steady with 704,000 but Australian Story dropped last night to 692,000. Later, Media Watch averaged 704,000 while Q&A held onto last week’s bumper audience with 683,000.

SBS viewers tuned into Predict My Future: The Science of Us (281,000) and Survival with Bear Grylls (165,000).

Breakfast numbers were down across the networks with Sunrise just ahead with 298,000 from Today (282,000) and ABC News Breakfast (76,000 and 46,000).
