Monday TV Wrap: Ten’s ‘Pilot Week’ Continues To Flounder

Monday TV Wrap: Ten’s ‘Pilot Week’ Continues To Flounder

Ten’s ‘pilot week’ – where the network will debut eight new shows in seven days to see which gets picked-up for 2019 – continues to provide network chiefs with more headaches than answers after two of the shows last night pulled disappointing audiences.

Drunk History (367,000) was the pick of the duo, while a repeat of Sunday’s Disgrace managed a mere 123,000.

Thankfully for Ten stalwarts Have You Been Paying Attention? (747,000), Australian Survivor (666,000) and The Project (533,000) meant there was no repeat of Sundays’ abysmal performance where the network managed an embarrassing 12.5 per cent audience share.

Last night, Ten claimed 20.4 per cent of the eyeballs, however, it wasn’t enough to beat the triumphant Nine with 29.5 per cent and Seven’s 25.2 per cent. The ABC had 17.2 per cent and SBS claimed 7.6 per cent.

Seven’s 6pm news was the most watched show of the evening with 1.07 million, while Dance Boss continues to perform poorly, managing only 447,000 last night.

As is to be expected, The Block did the business for Nine with 1.01 million. Nine’s 6pm news (985,000), ACA (886,000) and Doctor Doctor (684,000) the network’s other highlights.

The ABC’s Monday night evening of news and current affairs ran thus: 7pm news bulletin (743,000), 7:30 (597,000), Australian Story (591,000), Four Corners (463,000), Media Watch (459,000), Q&A (356,000) and Think Tank (231,000).

SBS’s best was the ongoing Inside Windsor Castle that pulled 304,000 Royal fanciers.
