TV Ratings April 18: SBS travel show outrates Nine’s

Mediaweek editor James Manning looks at last night’s TV ratings

• Seven keeps opponents at a distance with My Kitchen Rules well clear at #1
• SBS travel show outperforms Nine’s: Continent wins over Brits in Lake District


Seven is on track for a good win in the second week of the Easter break. The first of the My Kitchen Rules finals and another elimination pulled another big audience last night of just over 1.3m.

However, a second-night audience for Seven Year Switch was again just over 600,000. Seven launched the 29th season (and they say five of Doctor Blake is enough!) of The Amazing Race with 171,000 watching after 10pm.


Two episodes of The Big Bang Theory started with 713,000 and then dropped to just under 600,000.

The Brits on Travel Guides visited England’s Lake District with 257,000 watching before a second episode dipped to 164,000.


The Project 7pm didn’t quite crack half a million.

Not far behind it was a new episode of NCIS on 457,000 followed by NCIS: Los Angeles on 380,000.


Michael Mosley’s Secrets Of Your Food did 405,000 while Todd Sampson failed to crack 300,000 for Life On The Line.


Great Continental Railway Journeys squeezed into the top 20 with 381,000.
