Four Corners investigation into Fox News part 2 delivers 602K metro viewers

Part two of a Four Corners investigation into Fox News has brought in 602,000 metro viewers for the ABC, on a night that was won by Seven.

Last week’s part one of ‘Fox & The Big Lie’ saw 586,000 metro viewers tune in, with part two once again prompting a series of retaliatory stories in fellow News Corp outlet, The Australian this morning.

Seven had an easy nightly win on Monday, led by #1 overall program Seven News with 1.222 million metro viewers, and #1 entertainment format The Voice with 1.006 million metro viewers.

The Voice again won the primetime battle against Nine’s The Block (809,000 metro viewers) and Ten’s Australian Survivor (690,000 metro viewers). Ten’s The Bachelor which has been struggling to draw numbers of previous years is set to conclude in the coming weeks. It will be replaced from Wednesday 15 September with Ten’s new program Making It Australia, hosted by Susie Youssef and Harley Breen, at 7:30pm.

In other entertainment programs, Have You Been Paying Attention? brought in 637,000 metro viewers for Ten, while The Chase Australia had 618,000 metro viewers for Seven.

The former also won two of the three key advertising demos, taking 16-39 and 19-49 while The Block win 25-54.

Nine News was second in news, with 1.118 million metro viewers tuning into the 6pm bulletin.

Seven took a nightly network share win, with 33.2%, ahead of Nine’s 24.7%, Ten’s 19.2% and ABC’s 16.6%. Seven was also the #1 primary channel and 7Mate remained #1 among multi-channels.
