The audiences for the second episodes of both Farmer Wants a Wife and Ninja Warrior were down for their respective broadcasters. Nine’s primary channel primetime schedule had enough firepower to rank #1.
Ninja Warrior dropped from 1,040,000 on Sunday to 848,000 on Monday.
Farmer dropped from 908,000 on Sunday to 754,000 on Monday.
Farmer continues to perform strongly in regional markets where it ranked #1 nationally in its timeslot total people and 25-54. While the numbers are down, Farmer continues to perform well above the audience watching the last time it screened on Nine in 2016. The new season is trending older than both Ninja and Bachelor in Paradise in the demos.
10’s best on Monday was Have You Been Paying Attention? with 597,000, its smallest audience this year. Bachelor in Paradise was on 517,000, up from 434,000 on Sunday and ranking #1 16-39 on Monday.
Nine screened the documentary A Glorious Life: Bill Lawry late on Monday with 342,000 watching.
Seven’s 9-1-1: Lone Star launched strongly on Monday with 453,000 for the US drama starring Rob Lowe.
