Seven’s Take Me Out bows out with 394,000 metro viewers

The finale of Seven’s launch season of Take Me Out pulled in just 394,000 viewers, a smaller metro audience than Nine’s Family Food Fight and Ten’s Ambulance Australia.

Hosted by Joel Creasey, the program premiered with 604,000 metro viewers, landing fourth in its time slot, and maintained the same position last night.

Take Me Out was the third finale for Seven this week, but had the lowest average audience. On Sunday, Seven’s All Together Now finished with a metro audience of 717,000, while Seven’s Bride and Prejudice concluded with a metro audience of 699,000.

Nationally, Take Me Out climbed to 581,000 viewers with its biggest audience stemming from Sydney, with 119,000.

But the most watched entertainment show of the evening was Ten’s Ambulance Australia, with a metro audience of 649,000. The show topped all key advertising demographics – the 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s – and beat Nine’s Family Food Fight, which managed a metro audience of 405,000.

Nationally, the two shows captured audiences of 987,000 and 562,000 respectively.

Tuesday night was led by Seven’s 6pm news bulletin, which achieved 914,000 metro viewers, while Nine News pulled in 883,000. ABC News came in just behind Nine News, with a metro audience of 711,000 and Ten’s alternative news offering, The Project – 7pm – captured 423,000.

Despite the low result for Seven’s Take Me Out finale, the channel still managed to win Tuesday night, helped in part by the 586,000 who tuned in to The Good Doctor, as well as the news bulletin. Seven achieved an 18.6% share, scraping ahead of Nine’s 17.1%. Ten finished ahead of the ABC on Tuesday – with shares of 13.1% and 11.9% – while SBS’ share was 6%.

When adding in the multi-channels, the race got tighter. Seven Network finished on a 27.5% share of audience, while Nine Network was at 27.1%. Network Ten’s total share was 18.9%, ahead of ABC Network’s 17.3% and SBS Network’s 9.3%.

The most watched multi-channel last night was 9Go – on a 4.1% share.
