The ratings race tightened last night across several area with Seven and Nine both hosting new Tuesday line-ups. However, Seven was 6 points clear and an easy winner in all markets.

It was closer in the key demo groups. Seven won 25-54 but only 1.1% separated the three commercial networks. In 16-39 10 was the winner 3 points clear of Seven and 4 clear of Nine.

In the reality stakes The Voice was again the winner with 1.066 million but down 100k from Monday. Survivor ranked second with its highest audience since the launch week and was up from Monday. The Block ranked third and held onto it Monday audience. The Voice and Survivor shared the demo honours.

The battle post reality saw Seven’s Australia Now and Then a winner over The Hundred with Andy Lee with 10’s the Cheap Seats missing the top 20. But in the key demos The Hundred was first ahead of The Cheap Seats.

News numbers were down while The Chase also slipped.

You know your goose is getting cooked when The Block is outrated by both The Voice and Survivor in both Sydney and Melbourne. Having said that let’s see how all the shows go as the seasons continues. Could be a few interesting weeks ahead.

Nice to see some new post-8.30 content on all networks.

Survivor a very solid performer and very demo-friendly. It’s probably 10’s biggest show after I’m a Celebrity and also dethrones Masterchef from that title.

That caps off a great first week for The Voice. Average audience per episode is already up on the corresponding week last year.

Nine News won in Melbourne for the first time in nearly three weeks.

The Hundred also beat Australia Now and Then in Melbourne and Perth. It will be interesting to see the ratings fight between the two new shows over coming weeks.

It’s a promising sign for FTA when 8:30pm/9pm shows on Seven, Nine and Ten are all new, local content.

Seven News in Sydney and Brisbane are both benefiting from Olympic hangover.

3 Likes

Also worth noting that Nine is now losing audience at 7.30pm from the 7pm lead in while Seven and 10 both pick up audience.

Would the call by nine to axe the voice go down as one of the craziest decisions for a while by a network? It was a ratings winner on nine and now on seven.

Seven must be laughing at the success of all programs at the moment, yes thanks to the Olympics, but they still needed the draw card tv event to keep viewers watching and the voice is that.

Didn’t take long for Nine News Melbourne to get back on top lol

Perhaps Nine should’ve axed The Block and kept The Voice :sweat_smile:

Jokes aside, The Voice really surprised me this year. Yes it came out of the Olympics but still its figures are impressive for this day and age, particularly since its audience retention rate is much higher than all of their shows this year. Even if it drops after the blind auditions the shorter-run would mean that the show’s overall ratings won’t be too bad and Seven will justify its renewal for next year.

Nine would really be hoping The Block picks up in the coming weeks. After all they wouldn’t have invested in so much product placement and cross-promotion for ratings that were below last year’s :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

It’s already apparent (after just 2 days) that The Chase Australia has not maintained its rating increases achieved during the 2021 Olympic Games period. Millionaire Hot Seat is ahead again in Sydney and Brisbane. TCA ahead in Melbourne. Perth and Adelaide are not so much a factor.

It seems certain that the format is the problem. Replacing Andrew O’Keefe with Larry Emdur has not produced a largely positive effect. If the current trend is maintained this week and next, it will be obvious that The Chase Australia is a failed format. Not disastrously so. It’s just a weak Quiz / Gameshow with a likeable host that cannot defeat the long-running MHS which has a polarising host.

1 Like

It should be noted that these markets have gone back to watching Hot Seat, for now, so they decided to make a purposeful channel flick.

The two news services are still trying to outdo each other as much as they were before the Olympics.

Melbourne seems to be watching The Chase Australia more, so I assume it’s that group of people who got their remotes and just tuned into Nine.

All this does seem to highlight that lead-ins can contribute to news (heightened numbers), but won’t necessarily keep all viewers watching a certain channel’s news… Nine News Sydney and Queensland, and Seven News Melbourne might be scratching their heads a bit now :sweat_smile:

Nine reportedly dropped The Voice because it was too expensive.

I think even at the present ratings levels Nine will still make money from The Block thanks to product placement if nothing else. It isn’t uncommon for the show to have a very soft first week and then bounce back with the first Sunday reveal - will have to wait and see.

3 Likes

Ridiculous take. It’s only been two proper days.

It’s still rating decently by current standards but I reckon Nine would be hoping for more. You’re right that on Sundays it would usually pick up but the rest of the show is like a dumpster fire.

I’d watch Sundays and avoid the other days just for the reveals and the actual renovation parts.

My opinion was about “2 weeks” being conclusive.

Larry is a nice guy and an unbiased host.

Eddie turns off some viewers with his Collingwood obsession.
Ed favours certain contestants by influencing them: “lock it in???” when he should shut up or just mention the time remaining. Sometimes he trips up a contestant who has the right answer but interprets Ed’s quizzical demeanour as a sign they are choosing incorrectly. They switch to a different alternative (against their better judgement) and are out of the show. Despite this negative “host” factor, MHS defeats TCA in SMB due to it being a more suspenseful) format.

Also as the voice was shedding viewers, they probably didn’t expect 2 cities to be in lockdown 13 months after axing it, helping keep the viewers there…however the lockdown hasn’t helped the block (or has it).

Looks like viewers are looking for something positive and uplifting to escape the reality of living in a Covid world. The promos for The Block with all the drama and bitching are a real turn off. At least with Survivor we’re all aware it’s a game of strategy and human endurance and some positive messages are imparted. You’d struggle to find anything likeable and relatable amongst this season’s contestants on The Block, especially considering they’ve brought back two of the most unliked teams in the history of the show.

The Block has clearly had it’s day.

I’m surprised that The Voice is doing so well - it seems to have resonated with Seven’s audience. Obviously the Olympics gave it a boost but it’s not exactly a new format. So Seven have done a good job to put life back into a pretty exhausted format.

You have to wonder if the performance of The Block is a cautionary tale for Nine and the producers of Married a Fucking Simpleton with viewers fatigued by self absorbed, selfish, poorly behaved prima donnas looking for fame.

Not surprised with this as Seven’s shiny floor shows always seem to do better than their other affair (DWTS did much better on Seven than 10, as an example). Seven’s audience seems to love this genre and The Voice is an established, if dated format so it seems to do quite well in that regard.
