Another close result, this time with Nine the winner. Similar results to recent weeks with Seven edging up slightly and 10 down. No bump for ABC with the return of Mad As Hell.

Nine won all markets except Perth that was won by Seven. Seven won the key demo groups with Nine second in 25-54 and 10 second in 16-39.

Travel Guides was up for Nine to win the 7.30 spot with MasterChef slightly ahead of Big Brother. In 25-54 Travel Guides was 5th, Big Brother 6th and MasterChef 7th. In 16-39, Travel Guides managed 7th place.

For ABC, Mad As Hell’s new season had 572,000. That compares to the last season that premiered to 682,000 in August 2020 while the February 2020 season debuted to 588,000. Lead-in Hard Quiz had its best result in six weeks.

Later Doctor Doctor had its best number since the season opener.

Big news number again in Melbourne with Nine the winner.

Another close one, good for TV, total number of viewers. Interesting how one networks wins total people but another wins key demos, then its flipped around the next night and so forth, as well as the changing rankings amongst BB and MC in total people and key demos.

Not a great result for 7mate’s ‘animation’ night, with the usually lower appealing / rating m/c 7flix equalling on total people share and a 2008 (old opening credits) Simpsons repeat at 7pm on 7flix outrating the promoted brand new ep at 8:30pm on 7mate.

I don’t know if it was just me, but last night’s show wasn’t one of the best. A lot of the gags were same same as last year, so I was having trouble staying focused. I remember last year’s return was really hilarious and couldn’t wait for the next week.

Ten News First Perth’s overnight rating was only 33,000 - I can’t recall it being this low on a Wednesday night for Perth for quite a while?
Charlotte Goodlet is presenting the news all of this week. However, I do quite like her as a news presenter.

Viewer fatigue. Too many episodes?

This from the same group that frequently use the term “dominated” this and that?

How is Nine News (locally made) going against it?
Could be a factor.

9 won again because they have an extra channel.

Time to revive 7 Food Network again :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:
But it often does make a difference

Good to have Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell back. It rated well for the 8.30 slot.

As for Doctor Doctor, well, it rated okayish. But a shame that no Aussie Drama is rating as high as it used to be. Is it a worry that Home and Away may be Australia’s highest rating drama in 2021?

It’s a shame that Australian TV programmers have abandoned their focus on scripted drama and comedy and have put all their eggs in the stripped reality show basket.

When you look at the lists of most watched TV shows in most countries it’s still drama and comedy. Australia is an anomaly where these reality shows are the most watched programs every year. So sad.
