It was a case of broken hearts all-round on last night’s Bachelor finale after Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins decided he did particularly fancy either Brittany Hockley and Sophie Tieman, sending everyone home alone and in tears.
But, as expected, last night’s episode proved a bonanza for Ten both in ratings and in ad spends, with the almost two-hour episode repeatedly interrupted by commercial breaks.
In better news, such was the interest in the finale, Network Ten had a rare win, seeing off Seven and Nine for audience share.
The episode pulled in 1.09 million viewers and then peaked at 1.241 million when Cummins’ revealed that neither Sophie nor Brittany would be getting a ring.
Ten took home 26.9 per cent of last night’s eyeballs, with Seven forced into second spot with 26.5 per cent. Nine had to settle for 24.1 per cent, the ABC had 14.4 per cent and SBS had 8.1 per cent.
Ten’s efforts helped by Gogglebox that continues to astound, it pulled 813,000 viewers last night. The Project (565,000) the network’s other standout.
For Seven, its best was its 6pm news bulletin (947,000) that also got trounced by The Bachelor. Its other highlights were The Chase (520,000) and Home And Away (512,000).
Nine’s The Block had to take a backseat last night, managing a respectable 784,000. Nine’s 6pm news had 850,000, ACA had 714,000 and Paramedics had 556,000.
The ABC’s best was its 7pm news with 674,000, 7.30 with 494,000 and Grand Designs Australia with 460,000.
