Sunday Night Tele Wrap: ‘The Biggest Loser’ Proves Dead Weight For Ten

Ten’s The Biggest Loser: Transformed is fast turning from major concern to major disaster, pulling a lowly 305,000 viewers last night according to OzTam figures.

The show simply hasn’t performed for the network, rarely roping in more than 400,000 viewers and failing to capitalise on the relative success of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

However, it was better news for Nine who not only one the night but had the most watched program with Married At First Sight snaring a season high of 1.19 million viewers. The dating show once again won bragging rights over arch-rival MKR, which managed just 1.02 million viewers.

The Nine network won the night with 31.2 per cent and then Seven 30.1 per cent. The ABC thoroughly beat Ten (19.5 per cent and 12.9 per cent respectively) and SBS rose slightly on last week with 6.2 per cent.

The surprise packet of Sunday night continues to be the ABC’s Vera which pulled in 851,000 and beat both Nine’s 60 Minutes (673,000) and Seven’s Sunday Night (727,000) in the time slot. However, it must be a worry for both Seven and Ten that viewer numbers are almost halving once MKR and Married At First Sight finish.

However, it wasn’t all great news for the ABC with My Year 12 Life (119,000) and Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery  (95,000) pulling poor audiences.

Bull was Ten’s most watched show pulling in 363,000. TEN Eyewitness News had 330,000, Bondi Rescue got 326,000, The Biggest Loser: Transformed was 305,000, and NCIS: New Orleans had 223,000 viewers.
