764,000 metro viewers tune in to Seven to see The All New Monty take it off

George Burgess, The Bachelor’s Matty J, former Wiggle Sam Moran, dual code player Lote Tuqiri, actor John Wood and AFL legends Robert ‘Dipper’ Dipierdomenico and Brendan Fevola brought 764,000 metro viewers to Seven last night when they stripped for a good cause on The All New Monty.

The show, which was a spin off of 2018’s The Real Full Monty, was hosted by Shane Jacobsen and choreographed by Todd McKenny, and aimed to raise awareness for men’s health.

Although it dropped from 1.027m metro viewers for the year prior, the show still took the crown for the 7:30pm spot, topping both Ten’s Australian Survivor which brought in 641,000 metro viewers and Nine’s Ninja Warrior Australia vs the world which drew 720,000.

Despite Ninja Warrior wrapping up on Monday night with a winner announcement,, Nine aired another episode last night to show how the Australian Ninjas would fare against Ninjas from around the world. The lineup featured Ashlin Herbert, Bryson Klein, Ben Polson, Olivia Vivian and Jack Wilson, but not 2019 winner Charlie Robbins.

But it didn’t resonate with audiences the way the rest of the season did, dropping from the 1.34m final episode, and delivering the lowest rating episode of the show’s 2019 run.

In the key advertising demographics of 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s, Australian Survivor took the top spot, giving Ten the win in all three, while Ninja still managed to nab second place. Nine also managed to sneak ahead in overall audience share for metro audiences 25-54 with 24.3%, and metro audiences 16-39 with 22.8%.

Seven continued to dominate the news space, with Seven News the most-watched program for the evening, drawing 1.093m metro viewers over Nine News’ 927,000. After Monty, Home and Away was Seven’s most-watched entertainment program with 672,000 metro viewers.

ABC News was watched by 686,000, and 364,000 tuned in for Waltzing the Dragon with Benjamin Law.

Seven’s success for the evening continued into the audience share, with the channel holding a 23.4% share above Nine’s 20.9%, Ten’s 12.3% and ABC’s 10.6%.

Seven also took the win in network share, holding a 30.9% audience share above Nine’s 28.2%, Ten’s 18.1% and ABC’s 15.1%. Ten had the most-watched multi-channel with 3.7% share for Ten Bold.
