335,000 metro viewers tune in for the finale episode of Seven’s Plate of Origin

Seven’s Plate of Origin concluded on Tuesday night in a double episode with 349,000 metro viewers watching the first hour of the program and 335,000 tuning in for the final moments.

The show premiered in August to 667,000 metro viewers, but has struggled to find an audience throughout the season. The final was its lowest rating episode.

Plate of Origin struggled to find an audience

Hosted by My Kitchen Rules’ Manu Feildel and former MasterChef Australia judges Gary Mehigan and Matt Preston, it’s unclear if Plate of Origin will return in 2021.

Nine’s The Block was the most-watched entertainment show of the night with 807,000 metro viewers. In the same slot, Ten’s Todd Sampson’s Body Hack delivered 306,000 and ABC’s 7.30 brought in 589,000, followed by Anh’s Brush With Fame which secured 638,000.

Nationally, 431,000 watched Body Hack, 514,000 Plate of Origin, 861,000 7.30, 894,000 Anh’s Brush With Fame and 1.109m The Block.

The Block also topped all three of the key advertising demographics – 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s – followed by Nine News. Nine News brought in 966,000 metro viewers at 6pm against Seven News’ 1.085m.

Nine’s strong performance in programming gave it a win for the night with a 20.6% channel audience share and 30.2% for its network. Seven secured 17.6% and 26.0%, ABC 14.4% and 18.9%, while Ten slipped to 9.5% and 16.1%. The most-watched multi-channel was 10 Bold with 4.1%.
