Seven wins Tuesday at breakfast, brunch, dinner and supper (but Eddie takes teatime)

My Kitchen Rules stormed to another huge night on Tuesday, pulling in 1.924m viewers and helping Seven dominate the night as it had done for virtually the whole day.

Packed To The Rafters also performed well for Seven, delivering 1.535m, up for the second week running and helping ease concerns that the drama is running out of steam.

Seven’s strong night damaged both Ten and Nine, preliminary overnight metro ratings from OzTam suggest.

Nine’s only program above 1m was Nine News which rated 1.065m. It beat Seven in Sydney and was a dead heat in Melbourne but lost in Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

A Current Affair then declined to 922,000 before double episodes of The Big Bang Theory which rated 702,000 and 682,000.

2 Broke Girls improved fractionally for Nine, delivering 779,000 while Two And A Half Men’s double episodes delivered 619,00 and 602,000. The ailing Top Gear franchise rated 539,000.

Ten’s best performer was NCIS which rated 935,000. The Biggest Loser rated 919,000. Bondi Vet delivered a disappointing 644,000, while The Project pulled in 512,000.

The battle for breakfast saw Ten go backwards. Its show Breakfast rated just 37,000, down from 56,000 the previous day. The main battle was between Seven’s Sunrise (371,000) and Nine’s Today (315,000). However, Today won in Sydney and Melbourne.

In the midmorning scrap Seven’s Morning Show dominated with 190,000 viewers. Nine’s Mornings with Sonja Kruger rated 76,000, just ahead of Ten’s The Circle on 64,000.

Eddie McGuire’s Hot Seat delivered Nine n isolated victory for the day, beating Deal Or No Deal by 551,000 to 487,000.

In the key advertising demographics, Seven also prevailed. In 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54 MKR and Rafters were in the top two places, followed by The Biggest Loser and 2 Broke Girls.
