Ten runs fourth again behind ABC1


MasterChef: 21st in Tuesday rankings

The Ten Network’s all-people ratings woes were again on display last night as it ran fourth behind public broadcaster ABC1 once more.

MasterChef: The Professionals again failed to serve up its expected results in its final week with just 524,000 capital city viewers at 21st most watched program of the night, according to preliminary OzTam overnight data.

The only Ten shows to do better in the top 20 were NCIS, 13th with 717,000 viewers and the 5pm news, 15th with 670,000 viewers.

Ten ran fourth with a 12.5 per cent audience share behind ABC1’s 12.8 per cent.

Seven’s My Kitchen Rules dominated the night with 1.805m viewers, with Packed To The Rafters, which aired after MKR, second on 1.382m.

ABC1’s tactic of running repeats of greying-detective series New Tricks (782,000) went well to make it the 12th most show of the night, beating NCIS (717,000).

My Kitchen Rules, Packed To The Rafters, The Block: All Stars and Big Bang Theory all dominated the below 49-year-old demographic.
