Seven’s comedy duo falls again

Seven’s winning run came to an end on Thursday night with TV Burp and Double Take both rating disappointingly.  

Sketch show Double Take, at 8.30pm, rated 832,000 (down from 942,000 last week) while TV Burp rated 774,000 (down from 846,000). From next week Seven is to reverse the order the two shows are aired in, giving TV Burp a stronger lead-in from The Amazing Race which did 1.1m last night.

Meanwhile, ratings for Ten’s The 7PM Project still appear to be in decline as it fine tunes its format. It rated 695,000 compared to 767,000 on the Thursday before. But Rush drew its highest ever audience.

Thursday night’s share: Nine 29%; Seven 25.6; Ten 22.9%; ABC 16.5%; SBS 5.9%.

  1. Seven News Seven 1.5m
  2. Today Tonight Seven 1.4m
