Sunrise hammers Today, Ten fails to register a show over 1m

In another dominant showing for Seven in the TV ratings, the network book-ended the day with a win for Sunrise in the morning and My Kitchen Rules in primetime, which won the night with 1.692m.

Please Marry My Boy won the 8.30pm slot with 1.022m, while Seven claimed 25.6% share overall.

Sunrise recorded a big win over Today, eclipsing the Nine show by 90,000 viewers.

The Seven morning show took 373,000, beating Today’s 281,000 across the five city metro region, according to preliminary ratings from OzTam. However, Today won in the key advertising markets Sydney and Melbourne.

After a good day yesterday, Ten failed to register a single show over 1m viewers.

Its only top ten show was the temptation episode of The Biggest Loser, which rated with 853,000.

It was second in its 7pm time slot to Home and Away on Seven, but was the third most-watched show in the 16-39 and 18-49 demographics.

Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation aired at 8pm on Ten and was beaten by MKR on Seven, and pulled in just 609,000.

Ten’s Breakfast continues to whimper, rating with just 44,000.

Two episodes and a repeat of The Big Bang Theory performed reasonably well for Nine, the repeat at 7pm taking the largest audience – 826,000 viewers.
