10’s reality dating show Bachelor In Paradise has debuted to rather modest numbers last night, posting 507,000 metro viewers, according to OzTAM numbers.
It is the lowest debut in the show’s history, with last year drawing in 553,000 eyeballs.
However, Network 10’s head of programming Daniel Monaghan said 10 was “pleased” with the premiere of the show.
“We’re pleased with how Australians have welcomed the launch of season three of Bachelor In Paradise. It was the number show last night among 16 to 39s, set social media ablaze and generated countless water cooler moments – even if it’s the virtual water cooler this time around.
“This season will continue to captivate viewers, with cheeky fan favourites and plenty of drama finding its way onto the island. I’m confident Bachelor In Paradise will provide the fix of tropical escapism Australia needs right now.”
Over at Nine, its best for the night was Emergency (592,000), while Seven’s The Chase (665,000) and ABC’s Hard Quiz enjoyed 707,000.
Nine won the night across all channels with 26.8 per cent. Seven did 27.7 per cent, 10 did 17.9 per cent, ABC did 18.2 per cent and SBS did 9.5 per cent.
