Nine was Wednesday night’s top network with 10 second posting its best Wednesday share of the year. Seven ranked third with its main channel fourth. Nine won along the east coast, 10 won Adelaide and Seven won Perth. 10 won all key demographics.

MasterChef was again the key to 10’s success with another audience above 1 million though The Project was also well up on recent numbers. ABC’s line up also did well despite dropping from the previous week’s results. Nine had success with a one hour A Current Affair and Paramedics with Seven dominating the 6pm news hour with Home and Away also competitive.

The final ever episode of Modern Family could only manage 25th place in the rankings. It also missed the top 20 in all key demographics. The Latest that followed at 8.30pm sank to 39th place.

MasterChef was steady from Tuesday. 10 said it was the show’s biggest episode 3 audience since 2012.
If it can get another 1 million viewers tonight 10 will be very happy.
Seven’s line-up collapsed after 7.30pm with low ratings for the final episodes of Modern Family. It was an unceremonious end to the comedy on Australian TV, after it had been a ratings hit for 10 for its first nine seasons.

Seven and Nine should consider stopping these news specials from around about now.

5 Likes

while it pulls a respectable figure, Home and Away being 4th in its slot two nights in a row now is another concern for 7.

7 is the fourth placed channel. That is a very big concern.

Masterchef + The Project is a great combination for 10. Just need to have some more 8:30 content that rates.

6 Likes

Nine’s special ranked 21st and had double the audience of The Latest despite starting 30 minutes later. Even Bull on 10 had nearly double the audience of The Latest.

Seven have addressed this and The Latest is bumped to around 10.30 next week.

2 Likes

Agreed. Very sad that it ended with a whimper. Although the show had lost its edge in the last few seasons, Seven didn’t help it by scheduling new episodes at random, often late at night after shows that over-ran their time slots. Such as BBL. And showings on 7 and 7Flix as a filler.

Was echoing your comments in recent weeks about the drop off in these specials.

This is where it should be permanently. I used to like watching the late news on Ch10 all those years ago and I think there is a void that could be filled by The Latest.

You hate the latest @TV.Cynic - you always look for the negative in its numbers, I’ve noticed.

Bull had the massive Masterchef lead in. Nines 9pm News has the decent paramedics lead in. And the latest had the dud of the modern family lead in.

The latest has literally has 106 different time slots in the last 4 weeks. It’s now simply seen as filler. No one is tuning in for this show. Why bother. Stay watching long enough and it will pop up at some random time

I’d be curious what % of their respective lead in the latest on Seven and Nines 9pm News special held

It’s posted some strong numbers and some weak numbers. I think it would be stronger had seven not bounced it around in a millón different slots. It’s now entirely dependent on lead in nines news has had much much more consistent times

I’d still argue if the latest went consistently at 930 or 10, it would do better than 75% of Seven’s 930/10pm shows

But it requires consistant programming. Which 7 are not capable of

This is sevens thing

I only brought up the details of The Latest’s numbers in response to a suggestion that Nine AND Seven should be “stopping these news specials”. I disagreed because on Wednesday, Nine’s special did well and ranked second in total people in the timeslot.

There was no way to put a positive spin on the results for The Latest last night, I leave that to others. The bulletin at 8:30 had around half the audience of Nine’s 9:00 bulletin.

The Latest retained 66% of its lead in. Nine’s bulletin retrained 77%.

I have always thought the show would consistently win or come second in its timeslot if scheduled at approx 10.30pm. Anything much earlier and it would be harder for Seven to fit into its schedule on a consistent basis and it would be beaten by the tail end of programs that started earlier on Nine and 10.

50,000-60,000 more viewers than this time last year.

Pretty sure the dismal lead in wouldn’t have helped…

So the lead in’s retention %'s are similar. Nine’s 16% higher. I think that’s important to look at in context, as these prime-time news bulletins seem completely reliant on lead in. When it had married as a lead in - Nine’s 9pm news was doing 800k. Now it has Paramedics as it;'s lead in it’s doing half that.

Modern Family is a dud, so whatever followed it would also sink. Nothing on Seven has worked post 7.30 in months. In fact, I would argue earlier in its run The Latest actually got Seven some of it’s best post 7.30 ratings in a long time.

But it’s a show that is completely reliant on its lead in. Who is going to leave Masterchef or Paramedics half way through to watch a news bulletin? No one. So its just got the Modern Family lead in.

What shows does Seven have that can go at 9 or 9.30 that pull consistent numbers?

Important to note that on Tuesday with the dud lead in of Richard Attenborigh, Nine’s late news was significantly behind the Latest. Lead in for these shows matters

Nine must be worried that their 6pm news is collapsing against Seven News.

At least one thing is certain, Modern Family can piss off our main channel screens for good. No one has cared about it in years.

If Seven had House Rules last night they would at least be third placed channel instead of fourth. Instead they’re continuing with their bizarre programming and scheduling decisions which is doing them no good ratings-wise. Maybe they’re trying to preserve House Rules episodes to get them through Q2?

Masterchef did well as usual. If Masterchef can maintain these figures against competition then Nine should be worried about LEGO Masters and the possibility it may not become the smash hit it once was.

2 Likes

They probably wanted to finish off Modern Family close to the time it ended overseas and hoping there would be some interest in the finale.

Being a non-ratings, they probably figured it didn’t matter as much and saved the House Rules for a ratings week. Speaking of which, when are they going to drop the two non-ratings weeks at Easter and the extended Christmas break. The networks are now launching some of their biggest shows so it makes sense to have the ratings counted all year.
