Data © OzTAM Pty Limited 2020. The Data may not be reproduced, published or communicated (electronically or in hard copy) in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of OzTAM. “Overnight” figures include “Live” (programs broadcast during the 2am-2am broadcast day) and “As Live” (programs recorded and then watched within the same broadcast day). “Consolidated” figures include Live, As Live and “Time Shift” (programs recorded and then watched within seven days of the initial broadcast).

Repeat programming at 7.30 didn’t work for Nine on Tuesday, helping to deliver the network a rare third place in the overnights. Seven (up 2.5 points) and 10 (up 3 points) were the biggest winners with Seven taking the night. It was both Seven and 10’s best Tuesday of the 2020 survey. Seven won all markets except Melbourne where it ranked third while Nine was 0.1 in front of 10 in that market. 10 won the key demos.

MasterChef was the only show in town, up 175,000 from the previous week, House Rules was down 25,000 while Hamish and Andy’s Perfect Holiday was fifth at 7:30. Also performing well was The Project that was above 700k at 7pm for only the second time this year.

In the afternoon, Hot Seat recorded its highest national ratings since 29 August 2016.

Without Lego Masters, Nine suffered a big drop in network shares while rival networks (especially Seven and 10) all went up. Nine may keep Hamish and Andy in the same timeslot next week, but if it fails again, it may have no choice but to replace it with another show (Young Sheldon perhaps?).

MasterChef was the no.1 program in Melbourne with a massive audience.

Seven News won in Sydney and was narrowly beaten (again) by Nine News in Melbourne. However, it must be a relief for Seven that House Rules, despite slipping from last Tuesday, outrated Nine in the same timeslot.

2 Likes

Viewers won’t put up with a repeat of an average show so Hamish and Andy end fifth in the timeslot.

The Project beats Home and Away at 7pm. I’m sure being the lead-out to a revitalised MasterChef helps but that’s very good.

4 Likes

I believe The Project also won its time slot in Brisbane.

Seven need to either overhaul and relaunch Home and Away or yank it from that 7pm slot.

Just getting it back into production quickly is their main priority right now.

Great to see the rubbish programming on Nine backfire. Perfect Holidays might be a good show but to use it as a filler and think viewers will follow just because it’s on Nine is just stupid thinking on their behalf.

House Rules is in dangerous territory. Looks like viewers abandoned the show before it went into home renovations. They should skip the penthouse or whatever Block-esque twist if it comes back and focus purely on home then garden renovations.

Good to see quality program like Masterchef winning. Imagine if they had How to Stay Married this week, would’ve had a nice boost I think.

You wonder how 7 win the main channel with such a low post 7:30 showing. Bizarre stuff. Although they wouldn’t really be booking much advertising so that would be much better for 10.

A shame 9 have no content for their Tuesdays given they do so well with their prime time content.

I’d imagine the news at 6pm gives them a massive start that gradually dissipates as the night goes on. If Seven was as dominant as Nine is now then I can imagine that share being much bigger. They’ve only got themselves to blame for that.

I’m thinking they might go with 60 minutes (which is proven to stand on its own in primetime) at 7pm followed by movies/encores, moving Lego Masters to Monday/Tuesdays.

No doubt some last minute decisions will be made in their programming department if this kind of ratings continues consistently.

Up 72% across the hour.
Its clear the lead in 6pm news has helped a lot with these numbers.

Hamish and Andy are popular with NEW shows. But clearly not popular with the repeats. Especially at 7.30pm. It should have aired later in the night.

Good to see MasterChef still doing well

Great to see Masterchef perform well, and pushing 10 network audience shares into 2nd place. Without Lego Masters, Channel 10 won its 7:30pm timeslot as well as their demos. Masterchef was No 1 program in Melbourne during that night. With HYBPA and HTSM returning next week, I expect 10 to perform well.

Like The Block’s room reveals, House Rules gets its biggest numbers for the house reveals. The issue is unlike The Block, HR’s renovation eps just doesn’t perform well at all.

You have to remember, that Nine originally waned to air Lego Masters on Tuesdays, but as production (on many shows) have halted around Australia, they’ve been forced to spread out the series over a number of weeks. All our networks are having to sacrifice a few time-slots throughout the weeks with fill in content. Fingers crossed that we see some sort of production start back up in late May, or its going to be a long year.

I think this will rate lower than NCIS repeats

It was such lazy programming. I am assuming 9 are trying to increase the weeks of Lego Masters and this wasn’t planned programming.

It’s just about the #1 scripted show on televison.
Plus Sevens most streamed show
Plus cost effective with international sales
Plus one of very few aussie “dramas”‘ on Tv

What would you put at 7pm?

What does that mean. Lazy? What would you have put 7.30 last night?
