Mel Doyle third in 4pm timeslot, beaten by Ten’s Totally Wild

Totally WildFormer Sunrise presenter Melissa Doyle’s second outing as presenter of Seven News at 4 spilled back on Monday’s second place debut, falling to third in its timeslot behind Nine’s Afternoon News and Ten’s children’s show Totally Wild.

Doyle was moved to Seven News At 4 and a 7pm bulletin on secondary channel 7Two in order to make way for Sam Armytage on Sunrise.

Yesterday, Seven News at 4 rated a metro audience of 182,000, according to preliminary overnight ratings from OzTAM.

It was just behind Ten’s Totally Wild, which rated 183,000 and Nine’s Afternoon News which averaged 235,000.

Meanwhile, Sunrise  once again saw off Nine’s Today by 390,000 to 332,000, with wins in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. Today won in Melbourne.

Sunrise has won ever day since Armytage moved into the chair at the start of last week, which ended up being the show’s highest rating of the year so far.

Seven also won Tuesday night, with three locally-produced programs making it into the ratings top 10.

Seven’s The X Factor once again topped the rankings, with an audience of 1.416m. Seven’s drama series Winner and Losers ranked number four with an audience of 1.009m.

Seven had a 25.6 per cent share of the audience, with Nine behind on 18.4 per cent.

Ten was on 15.2 per cent with Masterchef rating 808,000 and The Project 688,000.
