Ten has switched Young Talent Time out of its “Super Sunday” schedule after weeks of disappointing ratings. The show will now air on Friday evenings in what the network says is a reinforcement of its strategy to turn Fridays into a family friendly timeslot.
The return of YTT initially rated well for Ten, with the first three weeks metro rating above 1m, but as Seven and Nine’s programming became more competitive, the talent show faded to below 700,000. On Sunday it rated a slightly improved 689,000, mainly helped by the audience run in from the Australian grand prix.
Last night Ten announced the move, which sees YTT replaced by the Biggest Loser, as a “reinvigoration” of its Super Sunday scheduling.
Sunday will also see the season finale of US drama Homeland run as a double length episode on Ten.
