Restaurant Revolution slumps to just 312,000 as The Bachelor dominates the demos

Restaurant revoutionSeven’s Restaurant Revolution saw its audience collapse to 312,000 viewers on its first one-night per week outing, with viewers defecting to The Bachelor and Nine’s NRL instead.

While Ten’s dating show audience was down on its season high of 992,000 on Wednesday  it was still comfortably top of all the advertising demographics and third in total people viewers, comfortably winning its 7.30pm timeslot.

Restaurant Revolution’s audience was lower than that of its breakfast show Sunrise (316,000) and only just beat SBS’s 8pm offering Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook (305,000).

Nine’s NRL match up with the Rabbitohs beating the Cowboys which aired from 7.30pm to 9.40pm in Sydney and Brisbane had 590,000 viewers, helping the network secure an audience share of 23.4 per cent to win the night. 

Seven was relegated to third for share behind Ten with 13.2 per cent t0 14.7 per cent, thanks to the two-hour run of Restaurant Revolution tanking badly.

Outside Sydney and Brisbane Nine had Inside Story at 7.30pm which had 308,000, Kings Cross ER at 8pm with 298,000 viewers and The Footy Show  with 671,000 (although it aired after the NRL in Sydney and Brisbane).

Ten’s 8.30 show Law & Order SVU had 502,000 viewers.

Nine News won the night as the only show to break a million with 1.003m, and 999,000 for its 6.30pm showing, with Seven getting just 88,000 at 6pm and 848,000 for its 6.30/Today Tonight offering.
