Nine’s main channel was number one overnight but AFL on 7Mate in Adelaide and Perth helped lift Seven’s network share to number one. Nine won along the east coast with Seven number one in Adelaide and Perth. 7Mate ranked first in Perth out of all channels and 4th in Adelaide.

In 25-54 Nine was first with 10 second. In 16-39 10 was first with Seven second.

The AFL skewed the results of most shows by ranking 3rd in Adelaide and 2nd in Perth. The Masked Singer held onto its position as the number on reality program down about 20,000 across its timeslot from the previous week while The Block had less than 700,000 viewers. That is the lowest rating for an episode since 2014 when Nine ran “The Block Unlocked” episodes across the season.

Plate of Origin lost another 90,000 viewers with 419,000. That compares to the 3rd episode of MKR that had 401,000 this year. Halifax Retribution also saw its audience drop - down 65,000 from debut.

Ouch for Seven… that pretty much confirms that POO won’t be returning next year. I guess Big Brother and Farmer both did well, so there had to be 1 show that didn’t fire up for them.

Also lowest ratings for The Block in a long time - any reason why? From what I remember, it was also competing with The Masked Singer last year and still managed to do okay.

So far we’ve had Between Two Worlds disappoint for Seven and Halifax is doing mediocre for Nine - it’s fair to say that dramas don’t do very well on FTV.
Although looking at Halifax’s numbers, mid/high-400ks isn’t too bad.

Anh’s Brush with Fame went up from last Tuesday, while Further Back in Time for Dinner had a solid start, compared with 614,000 for the debut of Back in Time for Dinner in May 2018.

Even though the ratings decline for Plate of Origin is worrying, Seven will keep the show in the 7.30pm timeslot as it only runs for three weeks. It can also recoup production costs from overseas sales knowing Matt Preston and Gary Mehigan are hugely popular in India and Britain.

Having AFL on in 2 markets makes conclusions difficult.

Worth noting that The Block was 10th in Sydney which is usually Nine’s best market.

P.O.O. also suffered because Seven’s best market had AFL - it was 20th in Perth. So potential for the show to come back a bit on Sunday.

Don’t just pick on drama it looks like low ratings for everything in prime time on FTA. If these are the ratings for the first day of spring, imagine what it’s going to be like in summer.

That might be true for Halifax, considering The Block isn’t giving them a solid platform to build off from, but Between Two Worlds had a lot going for it - plenty of marketing, the trailers built anticipation, Farmer was consistently rating in the 900k’s and yet it still failed to fire, not to mention the audience kept dropping off each week.

Block numbers very poor. I wonder why it is not resonating with people this year?

Maybe the restrictive rules for historic house designs but more likely fatigue. Every show has a tipping point and maybe viewers have had enough.

Potentially Scotty Cam?? His reputation took quite a hit this year, but that probably wouldn’t deter fans of The Block from watching. I’ve never been an avid viewer of the show, but how similar/different is this year to previous seasons? It just seems like the same old format every year

In this context, I do hope that POO doesn’t seem that tragic in its ratings. I really hope it will return next year as this show has the potential to showcase all the cuisines from different countries around the world. P.S. Sorry to sound like a fan boy :slight_smile:

Nine wouldn’t want The Block to drop even more.

Again all shows are down. If you look at the actual share its getting compared to last year it’s only a small drop.

Also with Farmer, only the launch had 900k leading into BTW, the next episode was in the 700’s then the rest were in the 800’s (or lower on Mondays) but BTW was moved by then anyway. Still a big drop off however.

I don’t watch the show. But, those billboard/bus stop ads with Scott Cam in the outfits through the decades are just tacky and cheap AF

It’s a shame that Warburton will probably use POO’s disappointing figures to argue original productions don’t succeed when in truth the problem with the show is how it looks and feels almost identical to MKR

It seemed like for a while that The Block was like Survivor in that while the format is relatively similar each year, the change in location meant viewers kept on coming back. Perhaps this is the year viewers have decided to switch off

I think the biggest problem with BTW is that the show was underwhelming. There’s probably numerous factors that contributed to the low ratings (viewership overall is declining on FTV, small platform leading into BTW, etc.) but just looking at social media on the premiere night, the consensus was that the show didn’t match the hype.

Perhaps if we have a good quality drama we’ll see better ratings on FTV, but judging from BTW and Halifax you can understand why TV networks are leaning towards creating reality shows rather than dramas.

True that.

Re: original formats. I would like to see Seven create new formats but they need to be formats which are compelling enough for viewers to tune in. Nine did it with The Block many years ago and it’s still doing alright whilst Seven tried with so many dud formats (Zumbo, Super Switch, Proposal, Back with the Ex, Single Wives) and they never fired. They need to create a quality format if they want original formats to succeed.

You’re exactly right - there’s an article in the Herald Sun quoting one of Seven’s directors saying they poached The Voice because it was ‘guaranteed content during the COVID pandemic’. I’m guessing he means it can be produced under COVID restrictions and also rate well, whilst Seven’s original productions like MKR, House Rules, POO will probably be axed.

While Nine will no doubt find it spine chilling that Anh’s Brush With Fame on the ABC got more viewers in Sydney, it’s good to see The Block on the decline. Hopefully this year will (finally) be the last for this product placement fest - talk about an insult on the intelligence of viewers!

Far more promising for the network is that the studio move-related temporary set change has had no negative affects on the ratings for Nine News Sydney, if anything the opposite with Seven lagging 48-82k behind last night.

I’d imagine that a far more high profile subject in Jack Thompson would’ve helped, although I wouldn’t entirely rule out the possibility that a few decided to tune in after last week’s Gogglebox review regardless of who Anh was painting a portrait of.

It’s still tragic for FTA though considering that we’re still in a pandemic with limited outside entertainment options likely (particularly in our most populated cities) for some months to come.
