Another close result between Nine and Seven as Nine wins its third consecutive day this week. Disappointing result for 10 dropping 1.5 from the previous week to land behind ABC. Nine won the east coast and key demo groups.

The three reality franchise all lost audience week-on-week. For LEGO Masters it was just 25,000 but for MasterChef it was 85,000 and Big Brother over 100k both with season lows.

For 10, the debut of the new series of How To Stay Married bombed, missing the top 20 and only managing 15th in the 25-54 demo group.

The Good Doctor was best of a bad bunch of post reality shows and even it was down on recent results.

ABC’s Old People’s Home continued to do well, posting a small increase from the previous week to a season high. Anh’s Brush with Fame was steady.

Not a good start to the new season of How to Stay Married. Maybe 10 should have waited for Old People’s Home to finish last night before premiering the sitcom next Tuesday.

Man, just woeful ratings all around lately - the fact that the highest rating entertainment show on a Tuesday evening is 700k really is a cause for concern around the viability of FTA TV.

Looking at the US ratings they’re also seeing massive declines and record low viewing numbers - obviously entertainment options have diversified significantly and perhaps even further accelerated by the spike in take up of streaming subscriptions through the pandemic but it will have an impact of the type of shows that networks are able to commission, at least here in Australia in the short term.

Networks can’t keep waiting, that’s why we get weeks of nothingness. If a show is good and built well it should be competitive. Anyway next week it follows HYBPA on Monday at roughly the same time and will probably get bigger ratings.

You need to forget this period last year as viewer numbers were volatile, look at 2 Year.

I don’t think any of the three networks would be happy with how their current ‘tentpole’ programs are performing this year at all. While yes Lego Masters’ is still pulling decent numbers compared to MasterChef and Big Brother, Nine would have expected it to be doing better.

Outside the dismally performing top 20 were even worse results for:

21 JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
25 THE DAY WILL AND KATE GOT MARRIED-LE
26 HOW TO STAY MARRIED

35 NCIS (marginally better than the repeat on 10 Bold)
60 ABC LATE NEWS-LE
77 NINE NEWS: LATE EDITION -TUE
113 THE LATEST: SEVEN NEWS (one of lowest numbers seen)

At breakfast Sunrise was an easy winner +70,000 ahead of Today that slipped below the 200k mark. Sunrise’s win was notable for being number one in all markets (Brisbane was a tie with News B). News Breakfast was 20k behind Today.

10 should have put all episode of how to stay married on 10 play. It worked quite well last year and generated some conversation on the show before it went to air on free to air

A pretty ordinary night of TV which is reflected in the ratings.

Lego Masters did OK but nothing really to write home about, good to see Old People’s Home For 4 Year Olds finish on a season high (and it’ll certainly be interesting to see how Love On The Spectrum rates the Tuesday after next) but that’s about it really.

It doesn’t really help that Australia’s commercial networks have been in a rut for a while now, continually dishing out the same old formats year after year with very little (if anything) in the way of new ideas.

Honestly…shows like Big Brother & MasterChef have been decent performers in the past, but that was 10-15 years ago. Unless Seven/Nine/Ten can come up with bold, innovative formats soon, they’ll continue to shed viewers and slowly die against Netflix, etc.

2 Likes

Yep, pretty much spot on - and it is not to say formats like Big Brother and Masterchef don’t have a place in the schedule but there is just an over-reliance on formats that are 10 and in some cases 20+ years old (The Block, Big Brother, Amazing Race, Survivor, Masterchef, Bachelor, Farmer Wants A Wife).

It feels like in the last 5 years there has been very little change or excitement in any networks schedule, it is simply rinse and repeat. Fatigue and boredom have set in but I think this is indicative of what we can expect into the future - why would a commercial network risk something new when the audience is just not showing up? I don’t know that there is much of a solution for commercial FTA business.

As a counterpoint to that Seven (in particular) has flooded our screens with new formats largely to no success at all. It is only their revived formats from years ago like Big Brother, Farmer WAF and DWTS that they have done well at all. SAS a possible exception.

Some recent new formats for Seven include Ultimate Tag, Holey Moley, Pooch Perfect, The Super Switch, Wife Swap Australia, The Proposal

Some other misses- Show Me the Movie, The Cube, Saturday Night Rove

Old People’s Home did well, for a show starting at 8.30pm. How To Stay Married, however, not so well, which is a shame.

I think this one though was a late change for something, did seem like it didn’t fit, random filler placement

was a filler for The Weakest Link, which was originally scheduled for yesterday. 21st for this movie was better than i thought it would get.

LOL if Weakest Link rates worse than that and in a presumably earlier timeslot now

Most were cheap crap though. I’ll give you Holey Moley which launched well but got old quickly plus they cooked it by airing 3+ 90 min episodes per week.

@TV.Cynic Can Seven even justify putting this program to air any more?

I get that it’s good to have a late night news program for the ‘news brand’, but why do they even bother with this show when it is buried late at night and gets low audiences?

Just seems like a waste of money and resources that could be diverted elsewhere across the network.
