Reno Rumble will move to a later timeslot after poor ratings.

The poor result came as Nine announced it was shifting the show back to 8.50pm on Mondays and 8.50pm on Tuesdays and switching it with the surprise hit of 2015 Married at First Sight.

The result saw Seven’s main channel comprehensively win the night in terms of audience share with 26% followed by the ABC on 14.9% and Nine coming in at third with 13.3%, followed by Ten on 12.3%, according to OzTAM overnight metro ratings.

Seven’s strength came as it again dominated the 7.30pm timeslot with 1.327m viewers tuning in to My Kitchen Rules while Ten had 570,000 for All Star Family Feud in the same timeslot.

At 9pm on Seven a new episode of Downton Abbey drew 870,000 viewers up on last week’s 856,000.

While over on the ABC 658,000 viewers watched Linton Besser’s corruption investigation of the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, which drew headlines after he and his cameraman were arrested.

A special edition of Media Watch where Paul Barry interviewed his outgoing boss ABC managing director Mark Scott drew 570,000 viewers.

In news Seven led strongly in both the 6pm and 6.30pm timeslots with 1.265m and 1.11m compared with 1.026m and 980,000 respectively.
