Having beloved Aussie treasure Magda Szubanski host The Weakest Link – Perhaps the meanest quiz show on TV – saw mixed results.

The show had 423,000 viewers, according to OzTAM’s metro data: not disastrous but perhaps a little lukewarm.

Nine’s program director Hamish Turner has said that Nine is “extremely happy with the launch of The Weakest Link, which won its timeslot and led in all the key demographics.”

“The show demonstrates our continued commitment to investing in Australian content in the primetime schedule and schieved everything we wanted.”

It did knock Seven’s The Good Doctor, its timeslot competitor, out of the top 20 most watched shows.

Nine had success with Celebrity Apprentice, which again rated higher in the boardroom portion of the show. The regular ep had 567,000 viewers, but the boardroom peaked at 646,000, making it the best performing entertainment of the night.

Next was Home and Away at 613,000 viewers, beating Big Brother (575,000 viewers), The Chase (575,0000), and MasterChef (549,000).

Coming out on top was Seven News with 1,055,000 viewers, followed by Nine News with 974,000.

ABC News pipped A Current Affair with 706,000 viewers to 689,000 viewers.

Also on the ABC was Anh’s Brush With Fame with 558,000 viewers while Love On The Spectrum increased its viewership to 447,000.

For 10, The Project had 489,000 viewers while 10 News First had 382,000.

Nine also had Hot Seat, with 467,000 viewers.

Seven (all channels) won overall with 28 per cent of the daily share, while Nine (all channels) had 27 per cent. It was a tight race for number three, with Network 10 edging over the ABC by 0.4 per cent.

Network 10 had 18.4 per cent, the ABC Network had 18.0 per cent, and the SBS Network had eight per cent.
