Channel Nine’s dramas following explosive revelations of a conversation involving the network’s star, Karl Stefanovic, have proven a mini boon for the network’s morning breakfast show Today.
Its beleaguered hosts, Stefanovic and George Gardner, might be making the lead story on every news site around the country, however, the unfolding drama has helped Today to a rare win over arch-rival Sunrise.
Yesterday, Today pipped Sunrise for the first time this year, winning the slot by 259,000 to 257,000, respectively.
In other TV news, Ten’s woes continue apace. Following on from Sunday night’s OzTam numbers that showed none of its evening programs could break the 300,000 mark (including The Sunday Project with a paltry 250,000) comes news from last night that showed a number of its shows were beaten by SBS.
Ten’s Family Feud, All Star Family Feud and Law and Order: SVU all came last in their time slots last night. While network chiefs will be sweating on the arrival of its next big program, Bachelor In Paradise, that debuts next week.
Meanwhile, Married At First Sight’s finale week is already proving a boon for Nine, with last night’s episode pulling an impressive 1.53 million viewers. The final episode is this Wednesday.
Seven’s MKR slipped back below the magic million, managing just 996,000. MAFS handing Nine the night with 34.2 per cent audience share. Seven managed 30.7 per cent and the ABC had 17.7 per cent.
Ten pulled a poor 11.3 per cent, but was up slightly on its abysmal 10 per cent from Sunday night. SBS had 6.4 per cent.
Nine’s 6pm news bulletin (1.01 million) claimed bragging rights over Seven (985,000) while A Current Affair was also strong with 943,000.
Over at the ABC, its Monday night of current affairs played out thus: ABC News (747,000), Australian Story (652,000), 7:30 (602,000), Media Watch (588,000), Four Corners (588,000) 588,000), Q&A (452,000) and Think Tank (198,000).
