Wednesday saw Nine again above 30% in network shares, 6 points clear of Seven. 10 was up almost 2 points with help from 10 Bold as Nine and Seven each dropped a point. ABC was up one as well. Nine won all markets except Perth where Seven was 5 points ahead.

In the 7.30 reality TV battle, Married At First Sight was again dominant despite dropping 120,000 from the previous Wednesday. Australian Survivor posted its highest Wednesday audience of the year while My Kitchen Rules continued it poor run dropping to its second lowest audience so far this season. Doctor Doctor was down slightly while Seven’s First Dates Australia lost 90,000 week-on-week.

On ABC Hard Quiz saw a fall but Mad As Hell hit a season high.

Nine Adelaide summary:

The 4pm-6pm audience was down an average of 40% across the timeslot.

This saw, perhaps, for the first time this week Nine News seemingly affected by the new afternoon line-up with a 39% drop in audience at 6pm to rank 14th in the market. At the same time, 10 News First at 6pm climbed into the top 20 into 17th place.

Terrible for 9 - they’re essentially giving 10 an opportunity to have the 2nd most watched news service in this market.

I’d love to know how narrow the gap was between MKR and the new Simpsons episode in 16-39s…

10bold is only 30k behind 10 at 8:30/9:00. Bull really shouldn’t be on 10’s main channel. Its a big hole and something that has to be fixed ASAP. 10 should either look at putting Ambulance, a movie or Just for Laugh special at that slot. They already have that NCIS audience that Bull targets covered on Bold.

Bull is a bit of drop (9:08 start) but it does at least get them decent consolidated figures

That overnight figure for First Dates is woefully bad. Surely there’ll be something else in Seven’s post-MKR timeslot next Wednesday night? At the very least, I’m certainly not expecting the program to be renewed!

It doesn’t get that great of figures with consolidated though. I don’t think 280k with consolidated is still good enough - especially when you have that audience already covered on your multi.

MKR ranked 13th while Ep 2 of The Simpsons was 21st. MKR was surprisingly below 7.30 in the rankings! It also was below First Dates Australia.

9.30 shows really are dire. Has any network ever tried an adults only version of a game show??? Eg family feud with risqué questions/ topics???
