Seven’s highly anticipated Big Brother AU reboot debuted to solid numbers on Monday night, with 866,000 metro viewers tuning in, according to OzTAM.
Seven broke the show into three segments, with 853,000 viewers tuning in to the arrival, and 930,000 watched the eviction.
Angus Ross, Network Programming Director at Seven said: “We’re thrilled with last night’s launch of Big Brother. Big Brother, and our whole content led growth strategy, is about attracting those 25-54s which are key for our partners. Last night, that’s exactly what Big Brother did, as the #1 show for 25-54s as well as being the #1 non-news show for all viewers.
“On top of that, it was also the #1 show in the younger demographic of P16-39 as well as other key advertising demos. It was also the most-watched live entertainment program on BVOD ever. Big Brother is just getting started and we look forward to continuing to engage viewers as the show progresses.”
