Trouble in programming for Nine

Nine’s Thursday travel strand faded last night with Trouble In Paradise falling to just 870,000 viewers from its series opening of 1.2m.  

Getaway – in the 7.30pm slot – maintained its 1.2m audience, but the holiday horrors of Trouble In Paradise gave viewers little reason to stick around, according to preliminary OzTam ratings. Many instead opted for ABC1’s Ned Kelly Uncovered, which pulled in nearly a million for the channel or for Grey’s Anatomy on Seven which pulled in 1.1m after being pushed back to the 9-11pm slot.

In an evening where ratings were down across the board, Masterchef was most watched with an audience just under 1.6m.

Menawhile, The Ashes continued to be a major drawcard for SBS, with the 7.30pm first session pulling in an average of 630,000 and the second 10.30pm session attracting 350,000.

Last night’s share: Seven 28%, Nine 24.1%, Ten 19.6%; ABC 14.4%; SBS 14%.

  1. Masterchef Ten 1.6m
