The Good Doctor and MKR boost Seven’s Tuesday share

Seven’s US drama The Good Doctor, combined by My Kitchen Rules, boosted Seven’s audience share enough to push it ahead of Nine on Tuesday night.

The drama and reality programs – with 949,000 and 1.116m metro viewers respectively – contributed to a 25.4% main channel share for Seven, ahead of Nine’s 23.7%.

But in overall ratings, it was Nine’s Married at First Sight that came out on top yet again, with 1.253m metro viewers, and a strong lead across the key advertising demographics – 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s.

Nine’s later offering, Date Night, pulled in 451,000 metro viewers.

Ten’s I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, which ran against Married at First Sight and My Kitchen Rules, averaged a metro audience of 517,000, while panel show Hughesy, We Have a Problem, captured 441,000.

OzTAM’s overnight preliminary ratings handed Ten an 11.7% share.

Seven News pinched another win off Nine, with an audience of 964,000 at 6pm. Nine News’ metro audience was 945,000.

It was a quieter night for the ABC, with its most-watched program, ABC News, at 689,000. ABC achieved a 9.6% share, and SBS’ share was 4.3%.
