Tuesday Ratings | CELEBRITY APPRENTICE AUSTRALIA sneaks back into a winning position | #TVratingsAU


I mean someone came first, but given these numbers it’s not the viewing audience that’s winning.

A Current Affair (777,000) stands out again for Nine straight out of the News. Celebrity Apprentice Australia (594,000 show; 657,000 boardroom) does an OK job, jumping back into first in the timeslot (626,000 average) and skewing up on the same slot last week. The Weakest Link (284,000) slips even further, all but ensuring there will be no season two without significant re-working, and then a repeat double of Kath & Kim (153,000; 128,000) draws a slim audience later in the evening.
Nine first in primary (18.4%) and second in network (26.7%) rankings.

Home & Away (607,000) slips a little from Monday night, as does
Big Brother Australia (569,000), the latter landing third in the timeslot. US dramas The Good Doctor (311,000) and the premiere of Filthy Rich (135,000)
kept a slightly bigger audience than Nine into late night.
Seven second in primary (18.2%) and first in network (27.3%) rankings.

The Project (327,000 6:30pm; 527,000 7pm) continues its now traditional slide through the week, and MasterChef Australia (571,000) can’t seem to buy a win except on Thursdays. How To Stay Married (255,000) hopefully doing good business on catch-up and BVOD because it isn’t on linear broadcast. New and repeat eps of NCIS (195,000; 131,000) round out 10’s evening.
10 third in both primary (11.4%) and network (19.1%) rankings.

7:30 (570,000) and Anh’s Brush With Fame (542,000) slide into fourth again in the timeslot against the ABC’s commercial rivals (556,000 average). Love On The Spectrum (485,000) finishes up with a double episode and a wedding – congrats Jimmy & Sharnae! China Tonight (50,000) complete’s Aunty’s evening without the Bonox.
ABC fourth in both primary (13.7%) and network (18.8%) rankings.

The new series of Who Do You Think You Are? Australia (313,000)
starts reasonably, and tapers into the current affairs line-up of Insight (193,000), Dateline (98,000), and The Feed (45,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (5.3%) and network (8.1%) rankings.

16-39: MasterChef Australia (140,000) won this younger demo, ahead of Big Brother, Nine News 6:30pm/6pm, and Seven News 6:30pm.

18-49: Big Brother (253,000) takes the win, beating Seven News 6pm, Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, and Seven News 6:30pm.

25-54: Seven News 6pm (318,000) take the highly coveted middle demo, leading Seven News 6:30pm, Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, and The Project 7pm.

A repeat of NCIS (192,000) brings home the win for 10 Bold, head and shoulders above its multi-channel competition.

Sunrise (257,000)
The Today Show (219,000)
ABC Breakfast (,000 (90,000 ABC; 80,000 ABC News))
