TV Ratings June 27: Front Bar and House Rules help Seven win Wednesday TV

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

• Seven wins Wednesday night with House Rules & Front Bar
• MasterChef challenge at Coda and Tonka wins all key demos
• Grant Denyer’s Gold Logie campaign endorsed by The Weekly


Home and Away has held over 700,000 for the third consecutive night with 724,000 on Wednesday.

The final episode of House Rules for the week did 763,000 after 806,000 on Wednesday last week.

The Front Bar followed in AFL markets with 277,000 – 195,000 in Melbourne. That again puts it well ahead of the AFL Footy Show in that market, which did 143,000.


On A Current Affair Leila McKinnon was reporting on Tania Zaetta and her move from Bollywood to motherhood. The episode did 815,000 after two nights on 847,000.

Two episodes of Young Sheldon then did 582,000 and 535,000.

The AFL Footy Show did 143,000 in Melbourne while a repeat of Britain’s Got Talent did 131,000 in Sydney.

The Project featured an interview with Dani Venn with an update on the scam that has been resolved and then NCIS star Wilmer Valderrama joined the team on the desk ahead of his appearance at the TV Week Logies on Sunday night. The audience of 533,000 also saw a great Tommy Little report on the Goornong police force, who were also in the audience for the show in Melbourne last night.

The midweek MasterChef challenge took over two Melbourne restaurants – Coda and Tonka. The red team were winners, meaning the blue team will face an elimination challenge tonight. The episode did 847,000 after 810,000 on Wednesday last week.


Hoodoo Gurus member Dave Faulkner was the guest on Home Delivery with 490,000 watching.

Gruen then did 727,000 with Suncorp marketing examined early in the program.

Grant Denyer was the big winner on The Weekly last night as, during his spot on Hard Chat, Tom Gleeson – and subsequently much of the ABC it seems – launched and supported a #denyer4gold campaign. The audience of 630,000 might have headed to the TV Week polling booths.


Robson Green’s Australian Adventure did 296,000 at 7.30pm.

The World’s Most Dangerous Border then did 161,000 at 8.30pm.

The World Cup numbers were as follows:

Korea v Germany 131,000 (midnight)

Nigeria v Argentina 66,000 (4am Wednesday)
