Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year loses a third of its audience

The second outing for Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year saw its audience fall by more than a third on the show’s debut.

Last night’s episode, featuring the pair’s adventures in New York, rated 1.069m – down 36% on the previous week’s 1.456m debut.

The fall is particularly noticeable because the audience the show inherited from Hot Property was actually slightly up on the previous week.  

However, the show still won its 8.30pm timeslot. It narrowly beat The Renovators on Ten which rated 1.056m according to preliminary overnight metro ratings from OzTam. However, Ten will have been delighted to have delivered an episode with an audience above 1m. And Seven’s Law & Order LA rated just 633,000.

Also in the 8.30pm slot, the ABC’s legal drama Crownies continued to suffer, with an audience of 567,000.

Top show for the night was ten’s Masterchef, which rated 1.691m, ahead of Nine’s The Block on 1.353m, and the cooking contest’s highest Thursday night rating of the series.

Continuing the story of  Seven’s bad Thursday, Sunrise was beaten by Today, with the closes of margin – 379,000 to 378,000.
