We may officially be in a non-ratings week, but with numbers like this OzTAM should cancel the second week of the Easter off-season.
Seven knows the power of the end of a long weekend and programmed accordingly with My Kitchen Rules pulling a huge 1.65m viewers. Melbourne and Sydney audiences were both above 460,000 viewers each.
The elimination of Josh and Amy was a season high for the reality series and the second biggest audience of the year behind the Australian Open (both are out of official survey).
It helped launch Seven Year Switch with 618,000, although a million viewers tuned out. Nevertheless it all went Seven’s way, pulling a huge 37.7% network share.
Elsewhere last night John Clarke: Thanks for your Time nudged a million viewers with 995,000 viewers -a classy exit indeed. The Melbourne Comedy Festival Debate drew 455,000 although The Story of rage was just 168,000.
The final episode of House Husbands was only 467,000 viewers which would not be enough for a renewal were we in survey period. Nine will have to look at its Timeshifted numbers and season performance in order to crunch the numbers.
