Tuesday Ratings | CELEBRITY APPRENTICE AUSTRALIA leads a tight though soft pack at 7:30


There was a lot of interest in what went on after the 7:30pm reality bundle too.

A Current Affair (689,000) leads the night for Nine, and sets a reasonable base for Celebrity Apprentice Australia (567,000 show; 646,000 boardroom) which landed first when you put the show back together (607,000 average). Split-coding is the worst. The premiere of The Weakest Link (423,000) did well enough to win the post-9pm timeslot (competition from the ABC) however it’s truth will be told in who turns up next week. Repeats of Kath & Kim (180,000; 128,000) are scheduled to leverage existing love for Magda.
Nine first in primary (19.4%) and second in network (27.3%) rankings.

Home & Away (613,000) Seven’s best, and lifts on Monday night’s numbers. Big Brother Australia (575,000) does OK though ends up in second in the slot. US dramas The Good Doctor (286,000) and The Resident (153,000) are indeed broadcast.
Seven second in primary (19.2%) and first in network (28.3%) rankings.

7:30 (591,000) and Anh’s Brush With Fame (558,000) land third for the ABC in the timeslot. Love On The Spectrum (447,000) draws a pretty good number at 8:30pm and is the only thing to give Nine a challenge at that later time. A repeat of Louis Theroux: Shooting Joe Exotic (233,000) leaves this writer wondering what if Louis Theroux did?
ABC third in primary (12.5%) and fourth in network (18%) rankings.

The Project (309,000 6:30pm; 489,000 7pm) continues it slide as we move into the week. MasterChef Australia (549,000) is relegated to fourth in a tight pack, while How To Stay Married (219,000) continues to struggle to find its audience again post-COVID. NCIS (192,000) and NCIS: Los Angeles (128,000) keep fans happy.
10 fourth in primary (11.5%) and third in network (18.4%) rankings.

A repeat of Who Do You Think You Are? Australia (200,000) leads SBS’s night, though it bested (just!) by Insight (201,000). Dateline (171,000) and The Feed (65,000) complete current affairs night on the multi-cultural broadcaster.
SBS fifth in both primary (5.2%) and network (8%) rankings.

It’s busy over here! 16-39 sees MasterChef Australia top the charts, with Nine News (both segs), Big Brother, and The Project 7pm following.

18-49 tips that, with Nine News 6pm leading Big Brother, Nine News 6:30pm, Celebrity Apprentice boardroom, and MasterChef Australia.

The coveted 25-54 demo flips it again, with Nine News 6pm winning, followed by Nine News 6:30pm, Celebrity Apprentice boardroom, Big Brother, and then Seven News 6:30pm.

Bluey (175,000 AM; 168,000 PM) bounces back to lead the multi-channel race for ABC Kids/TV Plus.

Sunrise (253,000)
The Today Show (206,000)
ABC Breakfast (,000 (100,000 ABC; 70,000 ABC News))

All figures Five City Metro (5CM); overnights only.
