I can see the headlines now: “Love Boat Sinks”. On the eve of announcing its 2023 line-up 10’s newest format The Real Love Boat got off to a bad start not able to make the top 20 on an already low-rating night with just over 200,000 viewers. Looks like rough waters ahead of 10’s Wednesday and Thursday ratings – so many puns!

Otherwise it was another easy win for Nine with a main channel share not far behind Seven’s network result.
News numbers were back to normal with Seven ahead at 6pm but after that Nine took over with ACA number one at 7pm while The Block, against less competition, was up 50k week-on-week.

Seven had double repeats of Highway Patrol on offer at 7.30 and after that there wasn’t much happening on any of the commercials. My Life as a Rolling Stone on Nine and Air Crash Investigations on Seven below 200k while My Life Is Murder even lower.

ABC’s Hard Quiz was steady with a competitive 549,000, up on 7.30’s result while the second episode of Question Everything’s new season was steady and ahead of the competition. Later Summer Love also won its timeslot.

Lol. Too many puns indeed for The Love Boat’s failing to make a splash. Not to make the top 20 is embarrassing.

Highway Patrol repeats on seven didnt do that good either.

The ABC did well with Hard Quiz and Question Everything.

Very bad start for The Real Love Boat. It will need a substantial boost in total TV now.

My Life is Murder rated just ahead of the FTA premiere of Nine Perfect Strangers on SBS.

Game 1 of the T20 series between Australia and West Indies did well on pay TV, but attracted a small crowd at Metricon Stadium due to multiple factors (lack of local promotion, return of school etc).

The ultimate “failure to launch”.

When The Block rates almost 4 times higher, you know you’ve failed dismally. Wonder what the aud peak was, sounds like their marketing failed badly.

Think it’s safe to say that The Real Love Boat will be lucky to get to next Wednesday (heck, even the end of today) without it being bumped to either a different timeslot or even 10 Peach/Shake. 10 can’t persist with having a dead on arrival show anchor their schedule two nights of the week.

The real love boat was considered dead on arrival when it was first announced. People just aren’t going to watch that stuff and especially on 10.

I declared it, as soon as it was announced. Promoting it as “Love Island on a Boat” was about as stupid as it gets. Viewers don’t like copycat shows.

They might shift it to 9.30pm or 10.30pm like Nine did with Love Island. It might find an audience there.

Yes they should dump it to 9:30 and pump 10Play promos for it.

The whole cast are 20-somethings - so no doubt the 20-something audience will be watching the Real Love Boat on demand, not on 10 - just like what happens with Love Island.

I do wonder how some of these people at 10 have a job. It doesn’t take much to know that love boat would never work.

10 rested The Bachelor franchise for this garbage? Lol

I definitely won’t be surprised if The Bachelor is now rushed out in the next couple of weeks and The Real Love boat moved to a later slot.

Did the Ten programming boffins really expect The Love Boat brand would resonate or mean anything at all to the target demographic?

3 Likes

God knows but given CBS we’re making it perhaps there was some sort of global deal.

I said that awhile ago… no one under the age of 40 would know the 1970s show.

I have a feeling The Bachelor wasn’t actually rested rather that it was really bad.

Rankings outside the top 20.

10 ranked 3rd in the demos but was more competitive - 2 points behind Seven in 25-54 and 16-39.
