The networks’ fascination with pre-Royal wedding specials continues to be a turn-off for viewers with just 353,000 tuning-in to Nine‘s Meghan Markle: The First 100 Days last night.

A Royal-free Channel Seven won Tuesday night with 27.7 per cent audience share, although it must be said none of its shows did particularly well. Its 6pm news bulletin (1.02 million) aside, the rest of its evening went thus: House Rules (599,000), The Chase (587,000) and Interview (472,000).

Nine was second with 26.4 per cent audience share. Its best for the night was its 6pm news bulletin (975,000), ACA (824,000) and Eat Well For Less? (614,000).

The return of Shark Tank (508,000) and the strength of MasterChef (804,000) again took Ten over the magic 20 per cent mark – it snared 21.1 per cent. While The Project did reasonably well pulling 558,000.

The ABC had 16.4 per cent and its evening went thus: 7pm news bulletin (728,000), 7:30 (471,000), Brian Cox: The 21st Century Race for Space (394,000), The Checkout (389,000), A Stargazer’s Guide to the Cosmos (285,000) and Think Tank (258,000).

While SBS had one of its better nights for a while pulling 8.1 per cent on the back of Who Do You Think You Are? (360,000) and Insight (262,000).
