10 had another good night with MasterChef helping to deliver the network’s best Tueday result of the year. Seven had the best network share while 10’s main channel was number one. Nine remained in the mix not far behind. 10 topped the Melbourne market with Seven ahead elsewhere. 10 again easily won the key demos with +30% shares.

MasterChef was again well above one million viewers to dominate the night. That compares to 678,000 for 2019 season’s second episode; the episode rated higher than any of the last 3 seasons outside of grand finals.

Chief competition in the reality market House Rules slipped below 500,000 to rank fourth at 7.30pm. Home and Away, however, did well for Seven at 7pm.

The halo effect from Masterchef saw The Project at 7pm surge above 700k.

Very big figures for The Project.

1.1 million for MasterChef. Wow. These numbers are what MAFS was doing this year and it’s pushed House Rules below 500k. Pretty impressive for a show in its 12th year. The ripple effect too is giving 10 a boost across the board.

4 Likes

Big audience for MasterChef, shame that NCIS didn’t benefit from the lead-in.
House Rules’ first interior house renovation episode was lower than last year’s corresponding episode which had 550,000.
It will be interesting to see how Andrew Bolt’s interview with George Pell rated on pay TV.

NCIS just shouldn’t be on the main channel. I think 10 should consider a Project special on Tuesdays while news is in demand.

Another good win to Ten and MasterChef. If only 10 can hold that momentum into next week, when official TV Ratings resumes (after this Easter break from OzTam).

Ten knows how to do well enough in unofficial ratings (with I’m a Celebeiry in January, and the launch of MasterChef) but struggles the rest of the year. Lol.

I am glad that Neighours has had a resurgence lately. Constantly making the top 20 with “healthy numbers” for a multi-channel

From 10:

MasterChef Australia:

  • Biggest Ep 2 audience since 2011.
  • Up 62% compared to Ep 2 in 2019.
  • Up 87% in under 50s compared to Ep 2 in 2019, 93% in 16 to 39s, 79% in 18 to 49s and 71% in 25 to 54s.

The Project 7pm:

  • Biggest audience since June 2017.
  • #1 across its timeslot in under 50s and all key age groups.
  • 6.30pm: Biggest audience since June 2017.
  • Full hour: Biggest audience since June 2017.

NCIS:

  • Biggest audience since October 2019.

It beat Home and Away. I wonder is Seven might consider bringing back The Latest to 7pm and putting Home and Away on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm.

That actually wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Cue the alarm bells.

Losing 200K from Home and Away is just tragic.

And after Home and Away lost 600k, that’s an 800k loss in 30mins.

It does well with Survivor and Bachelor? It’s not Tens fault if the other networks don’t compete outside of ratings. 10’s got a fairly strong 7:30 year for most parts with 3 strong 8:45/9am shows but unfortunately that’s where they fall when they don’t have them. (Yes 6pm hour is low but in the demos they are somewhat competitive still in that hour)

Good numbers for MasterChef. Revamped show and Gordon Ramsay proving popular.

To be fair, arguably all three commercial networks are struggling post 8:30pm/9pm

2 Likes

Home And Away is performing better than The Latest especially in the key demographics. When Seven bumped The Latest to later in the night it wasn’t competitive and was on a downward trend. I seems to me that extra news outside the main bulletins has been falling over the last few weeks.

3 Likes

That’s been my suggestion all along…

Although The Latest did well last night in a 9pm slot. I think it could build at 7pm given a chance in a regular timeslot.

I feel like audience numbers for The Latest are generally dropping. Nine News Covid-19 not even appearing in the top 20? House Rules remaining a little consistent with their low numbers. MasterChef is staying above the 1M mark. What’s with Sydney and Brisbane doing a swap regularly at 6pm? And Sydney’s 7News is surprisingly rating higher now both at 6 and 6:30. 7News Brisbane losing the 6pm spot but regaining at 6:30. Melbourne’s 9News keeping in front, even without Peter Hitchener indicates something wrong is happening at 7News. Can’t believe ACA deserves to be 7th spot in the top 20, don’t Ch9 viewers get sick of watching news 2 hours in a row?!
