MKR Pips Molly At The Post, Stealing Back Top Spot In TV Ratings

The impressive ratings that Seven’s Molly first aired to last week was no flash in the pan, with Part Two of the program pulling some serious numbers last night as well, despite My Kitchen Rules resuming its spot in top place.

Going up against Seven’s MKR is no easy feat, but the network definitely nabbed another dark horse in Molly, with OzTAM figures for 14 February in the city metro region ranking at over 1.5 million.

Just a mere 150,000 behind My Kitchen Rules, Molly proved most popular in Melbourne with an audience viewing of 527,000, followed by 378,000 in Sydney.

ABC’s Doc Martin was the third show to step up on the podium, just budging its audience numbers over the one million mark.

Molly’s numbers dropped slightly from the 1.793 million it snagged with its premiere last Sunday, but if OzTAM’s consolidated audience figures from last Sunday are any indication of follow up viewing, the numbers look to climb, after last Sunday’s debut has seen 16.8 per cent more views.

OzTAM also kicked off its Video Player Measurement (VPM) Reports this morning, with Molly scoring a VPM viewing rate of 34,000 in the seven days since it aired.

It comes as Seven gears up to bring a feature documentary on Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum to the network on Sunday 21 February.

Produced by Mushroom Pictures in association with the Seven network, the ‘MOLLY: The Real Thing’ doco is two years in the making, featuring interviews with people in music, film, sport, and business recounting personal Molly stories.

Over 50 high profile friends including, Kylie and Dannii Minogue, Hugh Jackman, Gene Simmons, Suzi Quatro, Tina Arena, Michael Gudinski, Kate Ceberano, Russell Morris, Colin Hay, Mark Seymour and Jimmy Barnes.

The stories are supported by over 300 hundred personal photographs – most never seen before, with rare archival footage of Molly on Kommotion, and the television pitch for an Australian TV music show five years before Countdown.

You can catch ‘MOLLY: The Real Thing’ this Sunday at 8.30pm on Seven.
