What best describes you?

Nine’s When Love to Comes To Town has risen slightly from last Tuesday’s dramatic ratings drop but it was swamped again by Seven’sWhat Really Happens in Bali.

Seven beat its rival Nine to the 8.30pm audience but What Really Happens in Bali was dealt a ratings drop, losing more than 200,000 viewers in its second week.

The program which follows the exploits of Australian travellers and expats in Bali was watched by 844,000 people last night, according to OzTam’s preliminary metro ratings.

Last week the program was watched by 1.057 million people. Maybe viewers are tiring of the ‘sexploits’ of the self-confessed sex-addict and ‘Prince of Poppies’ Todd Gisondi (pictured). In a preview of last night’s episode News.com.au asked if Gisondi was Australian TV’s “biggest prat” and a “douchebag”.

Over on Nine its new reality show When Love Comes to Town had a slightly better night with 657,000 people choosing to tune in.

Last week the program pulled in 636,000 viewers and sat in 19th place just one week after it launched to 868,000 viewers and claimed a place in the top 10.

Seven’s House Rules was night’s most watched offering with 1.446 million.

Reality contender MasterChef Australia pulled in 835,000 for Ten and came third at 7.30 behindHouse Rules and Nine’s The Big Bang Theory (1.976 million).

Ten’s most watched program was NCIS (837,000). The US crime show sat in 11th place for Ten and came second at 8.30, beating Nine’s When Love Comes To Town.

Seven won the night overall with a total 31.3% share of all free-to-air (FTA) viewers. The network’s primary channel took home 23%.

Nine was in second on a combined 28.1% with 21.3% for its main channel.

Ten was in third place on a total 19.8%. Its main channel won 15%.

The ABC sat on a total 15.3% with 10.8% going to ABC1. SBS took 5.5% of all FTA viewers with 4.6% for SBS ONE.
