A Tuesday episode of The Voice saw Nine a big winner in overnights with 29.5%, levels not seen since LEGO Masters was last on a Tuesday in April. Seven, 10 and ABC all lost share to Nine. Nine won across all markets except Perth were Seven was on top. Nine also won in 25-54 with 10 second while 10 won 16-39 with Nine second.

The Voice was again the number one entertainment show, up from Monday’s audience while MasterChef ranked second level with Monday. However, MasterChef was well ahead in the younger demo groups with more than double the audience of The Voice in 16-39. On Seven, it was bad news with House Rules posting the show’s lowest ever rating of 465,000.

Post 8.30pm was led by ABC with Miriam Margoyles the standout performer. 10’s How to Stay Married, however, was on top in the demos. Nine’s Grammy Salute to Prince was 23rd while Absentia on Seven slumped to 42nd and 64th.

Who Do You Think You Are? on SBS dropped 50,000 from the launch episode to rank 21st.

House Rules didn’t have a good night at all.

Low figures for the final round of interior renovations on House Rules. With Kimmi and Rhi clear on top, there was no point waiting to find out which three other teams would join the twins until next week’s grand final.

Seven News won in Melbourne for the second night in a row, along with victories in Perth (over 200,000 again) and Adelaide, but lost to Nine News in Sydney and Brisbane.

Who Do You Think You Are? with Bert Newton didn’t do well, dropping out of top 20, however SBS’s network share was steady from last week.

Ratings: Nine’s best Tuesday for five weeks as House Rules records series low

Nine’s Grammy Salute to Prince had 318,000 while Absentia on Seven slumped to 166,000 and 124,000 for its two episodes.

Who Do You Think You Are? on SBS dropped 50,000 from the launch episode to miss the top 20 on 362,000.

THE VOICE BUILDS AUDIENCE AND RANKS NO.1 AT 7.30

The Nine Network was No.1 on Tuesday night across the 5 City with People 25-54 (29.9%) , GS + Child and Total People (29.5%) .

The Voice built metro audiences on last Monday’s episode by 3.9% with Total People.

Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince was a timeslot winner in Brisbane and Adelaide.

Nine News was the No.1 program of the night in Sydney and Brisbane, and across the combined East Coast capitals.

Nine News saw the highest rating Tuesday bulletin of 2020 in Adelaide and Perth.

Those dramas from Amazon Prime and Netflix is sure helping Seven a lot :stuck_out_tongue:

House Rules slumps but not much they can do about the rest of this season. They could still bring it back next year but they’ll need to do a lot more work to get it back into competitive mode.

If only Seven was able to convince Andrew Denton to do another season of Interview. That little show was decent and would be the easiest to do in this day and age. All they need is two chairs and/or a TV screen and bingo. Not to mention it would give them some depth in their lacklustre schedule.

I find it confusing how 10 can be number 1 in both 16-39 and 18-49 but only number 2 in under 50’s.

Perhaps a lot of kids watch The Voice! because under 50 includes those younger than 16.

I didn’t know children would love their news, ACA and The Voice so much though.

9News Sydney won over 7…

He knows that, it’s clear you haven’t read his post properly.

Anyway, looks as if the Voice is just behind the 1M mark. All audiences but Sydney and Melbourne prefer it. Syd and Melbourne turning to Masterchef instead.
As @JohnsonTV has commented in the news section, Seven News Melbourne has won this night beating Nine at 6:00 as well as 6:30. Seven News Sydney not doing bad, just trailing behind 9. 7 News Brisbane continues to be slammed by Nine News Brisbane. Nine News Perth at 100,000+ for the first time in a while.
ACA back at higher figures.

Totally agree with you there.

It’s not necessarily children… they’re all watching Netflix and YouTube and that. If Nine’s lucky maybe a bit of The Voice. Do you mean families watching these shows together?

I feel like 9 News gained more viewers over the Covid 19 crises, but those extra viewers have now gone back to their normal reality. Where 7 News Melbourne has been able to hold onto its audience.

I reckon most of today’s kids wouldn’t go anywhere near the commercial networks, maybe a little bit of the ABC children’s channels if any terrestrial free to air TV at all.

Yeah, Seven News Sydney’s ratings are still overstated IMO. Again, why in recent years have they not been able to sustain the lead for a period of more than a few weeks in a row once in a blue moon? A truly competitive Sydney 6pm news market would be if Seven won one week, Nine picking up the next and so on. Not Nine winning 35 or more weeks of the ratings year, as the case has been for the last few!

Exactly how Nine News Queensland doesn’t get smashed by 100k every night is one of the great mysteries of our times. Do South East Queenslanders actually like those dodgy “Special Reports”? :confused:

I assume most regular TV watchers wouldn’t pick up on the tabloid content as MediaSpy and Media Watch would.

Remember, this was very recent.

It seems whenever a channel wins the news in Melbourne, they lose Sydney and Brisbane, and vice versa

It’s a merry-go-round, particularly in Sydney and Brisbane.

Looks like 9News is really asserting dominance in Brisbane. A huge win last night and for Hot Seat as well. ACA also well ahead of H&A. Unless there’s a big turnaround quickly, 7News has lost its crown in Brisbane in 2020.

Don’t think that will happen (unless Seven decides to prove me wrong).

Although the Brisbane news audience seems pretty fickle in recent times. 7 was a solid leader then all of a sudden it switched to 9 leading, that said, from day to day the lead can swing quite wildly from one to the other. Hot Seat winning consistently now seems to be playing a part I think.

Have there been any major changes to The Chase?

And even disregarding that, it’s questionable why people aren’t switching from 9 to 7. Maybe those sensationalist ads luring people in? And it could be why 7 is now trying to follow suit - we have discussed 7’s recent ad. Some like @Tom_TV7 found it quite sensationalist

In the Brisbane market in recent times this has proven to be quite true.
