Shit My Dad Says slides again in Monday night ratings

Network Nine’s primetime show Shit My Dad Says starring William Shatner, which premiered with an audience haul of 1.2m last month, suffered another fall in the Monday night ratings, dropping from 0.804m to 0.644m viewers in a week.

Nine’s Two and a Half Men was not avidly watched outside of Melbourne, despite the ongoing off-air escapades of actor Charlie Sheen, shrinking from 0.982m last Monday to 0.903m last night. There was also an nasty fall for Nine’s This is your life, dropping from 1.043m to 0.774m.

The night’s ratings were topped again by Seven’s My Kitchen Rules, which pulled in 1.406m viewers – fractionally down on last week’s figures. News and current affairs programming from Seven and Nine also performed well.

Seven News, Nine News, A Current Affair (Nine) and Today Tonight (Seven) made up the rest of the top five, while Network Ten was back in the top ten after a return to form for Glee, which pulled in 1.024m – up from 0.909m last Monday.

Seven’s Conviction Kitchen, now into its third episode, showed healthy progress, up from 0.757m viewers last week to 0.942m last night – and into the top ten.

The visit of adventurer Bear Grylls to Australia did little to boost the ratings of his show Man vs. Wild on Network SBS One, recording 0.326m viewers.

Seven emerged as the preferred Monday night channel overall, with 24.3% share, followed by Nine (18.3%) and Ten (15.3%).
