I Will Survive drops again

Ten’s I Will Survive had one of its lowest results of the series on Tuesday night.

The musical competition, themed around the film Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, rated 277,000 across the five city metro market, according to preliminary ratings from OzTam.

The disappointing number is a fall on last week when the network switched form two episodes a week to one in the face of poor ratings. Last week’s episode rating 358,000.

The show’s previous preliminary ratings low of 281,000 total viewers was later consolidated to 263,000.

Last night’s episode was 34th for the night, 30th in the key advertising demographic of 16-39, 26th in 18-49 and 29th in 25-54.

I Will Survive’s production company FremantleMedia had better luck on Seven with its singing competition The X Factor.

Also airing at 7.30pm, in its second live performance show for 2012, The X Factor was the top program for the evening in total viewers rating 1.643m, and across all three key advertising demos. The ratings result is just off its best of 1.662m.

Nine’s daily show of Big Brother rated 1.001m and was second across all key advertising demos, however, the show did rate higher than the X Factor in Melbourne for 16-39.

In the battle for breakfast, Seven’s Sunrise beat Nine’s Today 379,000 to 296,000.

Seven won convincingly in channel share with 29.4%. Nine was second on 16.7% with ABC1 third on 13.2%, Ten fourth on 10.6% and SBS1 fifth on 4.5%.
