Tuesday Ratings | CELEBRITY APPRENTICE AUSTRALIA wins the slot as Seven wins the night


Home & Away (584,000) delivers the now normal start to Seven’s night, and Big Brother Australia (583,000) follows suit, coming in reasonably well as second in the timeslot. US dramas The Good Doctor (343,000) and The Resident (160,000) help the network to a primary win, and a solid defeat of Nine’s later night quiz format.
Seven first in primary (19.3%) and second in network (28.1%) rankings.

A Current Affair (740,000), like its News product, continues to deliver solid ratings early in the evening for Nine. Celebrity Apprentice Australia (575,000 show; 644,000 boardroom) did manage a win in the 7:30pm/90 minute timeslot (610,000 average), though it’s honestly difficult to properly measure with split-coding. The big news was The Weakest Link (300,000) dropping 29% of it’s audience from week 1! Can’t be too long for this televisual world, and repeats of Kath & Kim (140,000; 97,000) don’t get or offer any real halo benefit.
Nine second in primary (19.1%) and first in network (28.4%) rankings.

7:30 (599,000) and Anh’s Brush With Fame (542,000) land solid third in the slot for the ABC (571,000 average). Love on the Spectrum (403,000) continues to be the show with the biggest heart that is most under-appreciated on TV. A repeat of Louis Theroux: Shooting Joe Exotic (199,000) and then into China Tonight (112,000) completed the evening.
ABC third in primary (12%) and fourth in network (16.7%) rankings.

The Project (309,000 6:30pm; 519,000 7pm) continues the slide down across the week for 10, and even MasterChef Australia (557,000) couldn’t do better than fourth. How To Stay Married (259,000) also near terminal with small figures at 9pm, with new and repeat eps of NCIS (199,000; 131,000) complete the evening.
10 fourth in primary (11.5%) and third in network (18.5%) rankings.

SBS start the night with a repeat of Who Do You Think You Are? Australia (179,000) ahead of the new season starting shortly, however it’s the back end that gets a slight lift with Insight (204,000) ticking up from it’s lead-in. Dateline (151,000) and The Feed (68,000) see their current affairs schedule out.
SBS fifth in both primary (5%) and network (8.2%) rankings.

16-39: MasterChef Australia (149,000) takes the win, followed by Big Brother, The Project 7pm, and Nine News 6:30pm/6pm.

18-49: Nine News 6pm (280,000) brings it home, followed by Nine News 6:30pm, Big Brother, MasterChef Australia, and Celebrity Apprentice Australia boardroom.

25-54: Nine News 6pm (342,000) leads the pack, with Nine News 6:30pm, Seven News 6pm, Big Brother, and MasterChef Australia completing the top five.

The second repeat episode of NCIS (177,000) on 10 Bold took the honours, even beating the later night repeat on the primary channel!

Sunrise (256,000)
The Today Show (194,000)
ABC Breakfast (193,000 (118,000 ABC; 75,000 ABC News))
