Not looking good: ratings for I Will Survive

Ratings for Ten’s  reality show I Will Survive took a tumble last night, down from 338,000 last week to just 281,000 last night.

The show was hammered in its 7.30pm time slot by Seven’s song contest The X Factor, which won the night with 1.502m, and Big Brother on Nine, which fell just short of the million mark.

The show ranked 36th for the night, with a smaller audience than Rosemary & Thyme on digital channel 7TWO.

Ratings for Ten’s teen drama Puberty Blues also took a knock, the show pulling in an audience of 673,000 – down from 728,000 last week.

The show ranked 14th for the night, but did well in the key advertising demographics, winning its time slot among viewers aged 16-39.

It aired for an hour from 8.30pm, and was beaten in its time slot by The Farmer Wants a Wife on Nine, which rated with 775,000, and Criminal Minds on Seven, which pulled in 868,000.

Puberty Blues was Ten’s most watched show of the night, according to preliminary ratings from OzTam.

Ad show Gruen Planet rated with 939,000 for ABC1.

In the battle for the breakfast viewer it was close between Nine’s Today and Seven’s Sunrise, with the latter winning by 16,000 viewers, with 351,000. Ten’s Breakfast rated 34,000.
