TV ratings wrap: Rush stalls for Nine, Hunted’s decent second outing for Ten

Channel Nine’s flashy reality series Rush continues to slump in the ratings stakes while Network 10’s new season of Hunted drew a solid audience for its second episode.

Rush, which sees contestants dumped in foreign countries blindfolded and wearing noise-cancelling headphones in an Amazing Race-style competition, just scraped into the top 20 programs of the night.

Airing in primetime at 7.30pm, it attracted just 242,000 viewers across the five metropolitan markets. Only 20,000 viewers in Adelaide and Perth.

Hunted attracted 472,000 metro viewers, although was down 10% on its launch on Sunday evening. Its national audience of 620,287 last night was also down 14%

Seven won the night’s share with 27.1%, helped by the news, The Chase Australia and Home and Away. Second was Nine on 24.5% and Network 10 on 19.6%.
