New Girl is up but Young Talent Time is down for Ten

Pre-election coverage around the Labor leadership battle saw strong ratings for news programs in Seven and Nine last night.

The one-day cricket also fared well on Nine, pulling in 1.184m – and was the most-watched non-news show of the night.

Ten’s New Girl improved on last week, pushing passed the million-mark. Except for the cricket on Nine, New Girl won the 8pm time slot against The Force: Behind the Line on Seven and Grand Designs on ABC1.

It was also Sunday’s most watched show in the 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54 demographics.

Ten’s Young Talent Time continued its slide, falling from 716,000 last Sunday to 627,000.

The Project appears to have bottomed out, although with a disappointing 318,000.

Ten occupied the top three spots in the 16-39 and 18-49 demos, with New Girl, Homeland and Modern Family.

  4. Get rid of Project on weekend, and put it back to it’s original time on weekdays. Most people watch their news services at 6pm. This is why shows fail, when they start mucking around with changes to times etc. We are creatures of habit, and are comfortable with what we know. Since project has moved, we forget when it’s on, and when we remember, it’s finished!!
