My Kitchen Rules ‘bad girls’ rise again as The Biggest Loser posts skinniest figures yet

My Kitchen Rules bad girls Chloe and Kelly helped the show win more than 1.8m metro viewers last night while The Biggest Loser recorded it’s lowest ratings of the series so far for Ten, losing more ground to its rivals in the 7.30pm timeslot.

Chloe and Kelly had helped My Kitchen Rules smash through the 2m metro mark for their previous cooking performance, and helped Winners and Losers to 1.04m metro viewers to beat Nine’s the Big Bang Theory which dropped to 995,000.

The Bevan Lee-created Packed to the Rafters had dropped to 930,000 last week when Nine launched The Big Bang Theory to 1.104m. However last night it regained the audience it has held for two of its three previous episodes this season while up against the latter half of the new Big Bang Theory, on from 8.40pm, followed by a repeat episode which averaged 919,000 and two episodes of 2 Broke Girls.

Ten’s The Biggest Loser had its lowest audience yet for the series with just 323,000 metro viewers on Channel Ten from 7.30pm to 8.30pm, leading into an audience of 378,000 for its evening coverage of the Olympic Games in Sochi.

However, Ten did manage 640,000 for the live men’s Snowboard Cross final from 5.30pm to 6.30pm AEDT on Ten and digital channel One, and held onto 601,000 for the post-race coverage after Alex “Chumpy” Pullin and Jarryd Hughes were both bundled out of their respective quarter finals, with Cam Bolton progressing to the semis. However Bolton was taken down while in a qualifying position for the big final and he ended up with a bloody nose and a broken wrist.

Although he patched himself up for the small final, he fell again near the top of the course and did not finish the race, finishing 11th in his Olympic debut.

Seven won the night with a 27 per cent audience share as Nine held 21.2 per cent and Ten’s share fell below ABC1 with 9.8 per cent for the main channel and 6.1 per cent for digital channel One.

However, Nine maintained dominance in the 6pm news battle with 1.106m versus Seven News’ 986,000 at 6pm, and 1.085m against 944,000 for Seven’s second half hour of news on the east coast and Today Tonight in Adelaide and Perth.
