Gallipoli audience continues to fall as five month delay hammers audience for Revenge

Nine’s drama series Gallipoli has continued to shed viewers on its third outing last night, with its audience dropping from 580,000 to 527,000, according to preliminary overnight numbers from OzTam.

Last week’s episode saw a steep decline from the show’s debut the week before which had 1.104m viewers, although it did pick up an extra 131,000 time-shifted viewers to take its total audience to 706,000. The whole series has also been made available on streaming service Stan.

In the 9pm timeslot the drama series was out-rated by Seven’s Revenge which grabbed a metro audience of 720,000, according to OzTam preliminary metro ratings. The premiere of season four of the show which was shown in the US last September was down on last year’s launch which debuted to an audience of 1.186m.

The most watched show of the night was Seven’s My Kitchen Rules which pulled a metro audience of 1.624m, helping the channel secure a winning audience share of 23.6 per cent as Nine lagged behind with a share of 17.5 per cent. ABC closed the gab between it and Nine with a share of 15 per cent as Ten settled for a share of 12 per cent.

My Kitchen Rules nearly doubled the audience of Nine’s The Block: Triple Threat which was watched by 832,000 metro viewers, up from last week’s audience of 755,000. MKR and The Block were the most watched and second most watched shows across all the demographics.

The Block beat the ABC’s 7.30 which pulled a metro audience of 812,000 to out-rate Ten’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here which was watched by 617,000, a modest increase on last week’s audience of 601,000. I’m a Celebrity was simulcast on One.

Yesterday’s broadcast of the 87th annual Academy Awards – The Oscars – on Nine was watched by 361,000 metro viewers with an extra 248,000 tuning in on Gem for an encore of the awards ceremony in the evening. The Oscars helped Gem grab an audience share of 5.2 per cent.

Meanwhile on the ABC, Australian Story at 8pm had a metro audience of 773,000 while Four Corners at 8.30pm was watched by 775,000. Media Watch at 9.20pm pulled a metro crowd of 736,000 and Q&A at 9.30pm had an audience of 547,000.
