Being Lara Bingle ranked 25th overall for the night, but inside the top 20 in the key advertising demographics, 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54. The show drew an average of 678,000 viewers across the series.

Shows on Seven put up more of a fight. Home & Away, on at 7pm, rated with 935,000. Once Upon a Time, which aired at 7.30pm, claimed an audience of 769,000.
