Packed To The Rafters rates with 1.4m, Today beats Sunrise again

packed to the raftersNow into its fifth year, Packed To The Rafters remains the country’s favourite local drama, with a solid 1.412m capital city viewers tuning in last night.

The Seven program was no doubt helped by an MKR lead-in audience of more than 2m, according to early OzTam data.

But after doubts were last year raised about its future after leading cast members left the show, it has come back with a vengeance this year and was the second most-watched program of the night.

It easily saw off Nine’s The Big Bang Theory and Ten’s NCIS.

The Block: All Stars again topped one million, but the news was not so good for MasterChef: The Professionals, which dipped below 500,000 to rate with 452,000 viewers.

But it did make the top 20 programs in under 49-year-olds.

Today again beat Sunrise in the breakfast slot, with the two shows now neck-and-neck in the 2013 ratings after eight years of dominance by Sunrise.

And Nine’s following Mornings has grow has made inroads into The Morning Show’s audience, again beating it yesterday with 171,000 viewers to 163,000.
