10’s idea to experiment with a bisexual bachelorette for this year’s series appears to be the wrong move as viewers desert the typically strong performing show in droves.
Last night’s episode could only muster a disappointing 253,000 according to OzTAM metro numbers and will now be a major headache for 10 chiefs.
The highlight of Wednesday night, The Block aside, was Gruen over at the ABC that pulled 647,000 viewers and was the seventh most watched show of the night.
Once again, Seven’s news (903,000) was top of the time sheets and again meant no program went over the magic million mark last night.
However, it was Nine with the bragging rights, winning Wednesday with 31.9 per cent of all eyeballs (all channels). Seven did 25.9 per cent, the ABC claimed third with 17.8 per cent, 10 had 14.9 per cent and SBS almost got rare double figures with 9.4 per cent.
In claiming said victory, Nine’s evening went this way: The Block (861,000), Nine News (845,000), ACA (697,000) and Hot Seat (374,000).
Seven’s other performers included Home and Away (583,000), The Chase (457,000), a repeat of Highway Patrol (415,000), followed by another repeat of Highway Patrol (387,000) and America’s Got Talent (282,000).
Over at 10, The Project did 340,000 and 10 News First had 253,000.
The ABC’s evening went this way: Gruen (647,000), 7pm news (607,000), Hard Quiz (539,000) and 7.30 (516,000).
In the battle for breakfast, Today’s 236,000 saw off Sunrise’s 228,000.
Best for the SBS was Australia’s Health Revolution with 216,000. And that, friends, is your Wednesday TV wrap.
