The Voice wins night for Nine while Ten’s Masterchef flounders

Nine won Monday night’s TV with a strong showing from The Voice while Ten’s Masterchef found itself behind the ABC’s repeat of its 2015 profile of Bob Hawke.

The second outing of Nine’s talent show saw the program attract 963,000 metro viewers as the top non-news show for the evening, beating out Home and Away’s 727,000 and Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention which saw 673,000 viewers tune in.

Have You Been Paying Attention also did well for Ten in the key age demographics, winning the 16-39 group with 241,000 and coming second in the 18-49 and 25-54 groups behind The Voice. Masterchef finished second in the younger demographic and third in the 18-49 group but failed to make the top five shows in the 25-54 cohort.

Nine and Seven’s TV shows dominated the night with Seven’s news pulling in a metro audience of 1.160m ahead of Nine’s 988,000. Seven’s news also made it into the top five in each of the demographic groups.

At the other end of the day, Nine’s Today had 202,000 metro viewers against Sunrise’s 277,000.

The Voice gave Nine the edge in station and network audience shares, delivering 21.7% for the main channel and 28.7% for the network. Seven’s shares were 18.6% and 26.4% respectively.

Ten lagged the ABC for the night, recording 13.2% for its main channel ahead of the national broadcaster’s 15.4% with a total network share of 18.2% against 19.4%. SBS had 5.5% and 7.3% respectively.
