10’s summer ratings magnet kicks off with surprise celebrities and its lowest premiere numbers yet.
The Project (209,000 6:30pm; 393,000 7pm) gets a much needed kick from the season eight premiere of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! (772,000 (794,000 opening night; 750,000 welcome)), the latter holding the 7:30pm and 8:30pm timeslot for a rare 10 primetime win…even though it was the smallest premiere for the series by nearly 200k. FBI: Most Wanted (284,000) and FBI: Declassified (115,000) broadcast as fan service due to little other interest.
10 first(!) in both primary (19.6%) and network (26.4%) rankings.
The BBL11: Melbourne Stars v Melbourne Renegades (338,000) still holding court for Seven (there’s still two and a half weeks to go) and still delivering lacklustre numbers.
Seven second in both primary (18%) and network (25.8%) rankings.
Nine still fully in Summer mode, with A Current Affair (607,000) lite rolling into RBT (320,000), and then repeats of Australian Crime Stories (259,000),
Reported Missing (163,000), and Chicago Med (76,000) rounding out the night.
Nine third in both primary (16.3%) and network (23%) rankings.
ABC couldn’t hold back and delivered the 2022 return of 7:30 (543,000 – coded as Outback Ringer rpt) hosted by Laura Tingle and landing squarely in the latest mismanagement of the pandemic. Back Roads (413,000) returned for a new season, and The China Century (271,000) kicked off a multi-episode run. After that it was repeats of London Zoo: An Extraordinary Year (170,000) and Judi Dench’s Wild Borneo Adventure (93,000) to fill out the schedule.
ABC fourth in both primary (11.6%) and network (16%) rankings.
SBS deliver another summer primetime night of all repeats: Britain’s Scenic Railways (145,000), Tony Robinson’s World by Rail (129,000), and The Best of 24 Hours in Emergency (100,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.5%) and network (8.7%) rankings.

18-49: I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Opening Night (310,000) slid in front of IACGMOOH Welcome to the Jungle, Seven News 6:30pm, and Nine News 6:30pm/6pm.
