Media Watch host Paul Barry may have spoken too soon about the success of the ABC show as it dropped over 250,000 viewers in a week.

In a segment on last night’s Media Watch, Barry discusses a poll created by climate sceptic think tank, Institute of Public Affairs (IPA), which found one third of people say the ABC is out of touch with ‘ordinary’ Aussies.

Barry said: “The IPA might like to know that Media Watch won its timeslot last week with record ratings. And as far as we know, most of our 1.1 million viewers […] were ordinary Australians.”

Last week, an impressive 812,000 metro viewers tuned in to the show, while this week that number dropped to 551,000, according to OzTAM metro numbers. B&T is not suggesting IPA’s poll is correct or factual, rather the timing of Barry’s comment is unfortunate.
