TV Ratings: Seven slips to #3

Mediaweek editor James Manning looks at last night’s TV ratings


• What a difference a day makes: Nine and TEN dominate, Seven #3
• Celebrity and Gogglebox make a demo-winning team again for TEN

Seven hay have dominated the first four nights of week two, as we carefully noted yesterday, but the primary channel slipped to #3 on its most-challenged night of the week with a Thursday share of 16.3%.

Nine and TEN scooped up all the viewers with Nine just 0.3 of a point ahead of TEN.

Nine was on top in all markets except Perth where it only managed 11.8%.

For TEN it was the channel’s second strong Thursday with good numbers again for both I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and Gogglebox.


Home and Away pulled the biggest audience after the news with 678,000.

The channel’s second part of the The Chase My Kitchen Rules special did just 435,000 after 479,000 last week.

An episode of Mighty Trains did 464,000.


A Current Affair was on 689,000 featuring a gold-digger and a stalker mechanic.

An hour of RBT did 625,000 after 630,000 last week.

The Big Bang Theory hour at 8.30pm started with 599,000 and then did 502,000 at 9pm.


I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! had another very strong Thursday with 871,000 which helps ensure the year-on-year stats for the 2017 series continue to show growth around 10%.

Similarly on a roll is Gogglebox with a bumper 752,000, the second-biggest audience ever for the format here. It was also up on last week’s 720,000.


Dream Gardens was again just over half a million after 531,000 last week.

Newton’s Law episode three was on 509,000 after 547,000 last week and the launch episode of 708,000 a fortnight ago.


Great British Railway Journeys was just under 300,000 followed by Destination Flavour Singapore on 176,000.
