Channel Ten has seen a leap in its ratings and audience share thanks to its new US drama Under the Dome. The 13-part series based on Steven King’s novels has been rushed from the US and is proving worth the effort with the premier episode pulling 1.175 million viewers last night – a relatively big taking for the network.

The new show is fifth on Oztam’s ratings with Seven’s House Rules the most popular of the evening with 1.474 million viewers, but it’s a little hope for the network whose Masterchef  reality series hasn’t been rating as highly as they may have liked, usually missing it into the top ten.

Ten had 20.1 per cent of audience share last night, up from around 12 per cent on Monday. It had no other programs in the top ten, with Ten News taking thirteenth place and attracting 765,000 viewers, Ten News Special: Killing Bin Laden taking 656,000, and Masterchef the network’s lowest ranking show in Oztam’s top 20 with an audience of 654,000.

Channel Seven is coming out on top with 33.9 per cent of television audiences, thanks to House Rules in top spot – finally starting to beat Nine’s The Block Seven News at 1.405 million viewers and the second highest-rating program, along with Packed to the Rafters having 1.181 million, Today Tonight taking 1.166 million and Home & Away taking 1.083 million.

Nine is inching ever further away from Seven with 26.2 per cent of audience share last night thanks to Nine News beating its usually top rating program The Block Sky High with 1.298 million and 1.191 million viewers respectively at fourth and fifth place.

ABC News was the only show to make the top ten at tenth place with 907,000 viewers, giving the network 15 per cent audience share when including 7.30 and New Tricks making the top 20.

SBS had 4.8 per cent of audiences last night and no shows to make the top 20.
