Ten’s struggling Everybody Dance Now failed to bounce back on Tuesday night despite the second outing of Big Brother failing to emulate its opening numbers for Nine.
Everybody Dance Now averaged 324,000, according to preliminary overnight metro ratings from OzTam. Although the number for the FremantleMedia-produced show was still a very low one, it was a slight improvement on Monday night’s 304,000. It was well behind Sunday’s debut of 598,000 though. Masterchef All Stars rated 788,000 for Ten.
The first episodes of Nine’s new US sitcom Anger Management, which is fronted by former Two And A Half Men star Charlie Sheen, rated 1.112m and 1.106m. Big Brother rated 1.327m, down slightly on Monday’s debut of 1.618m.
Seven’s drama Winners & Losers rated 941,000 while The Amazing Race Australia rated 896,000.
Nine won the night with 25.1% channel share with Seven on 21.1%. ABC1 was third on 12.7% with ten on 11% and SBS1 on 4.2%.
Tonight sees Ten and Nine go head-to-head on a different battleground. Puberty Blues and Class Of launch on Ten while Nine debuts the latest series of the Farmer Wants A Wife. Both will see competition from ABC1, which airs the last of its four Olympic-themed Gruen Sweat specials.
