TV Ratings September 21: Bachelor pushes Ten to a tight win

• TEN narrowly wins Thursday night TV with The Bachelor


The absence of The Block last night saw Nine’s primary channel share fall to #3, behind TEN and Seven. Its primary share was 16.6%.

The News and A Current Affair were its two most-watched programs.

RBT, Hot Seat and Driving Test were all inside the top 20 with 480,000, 448,000 and 425,000 watching respectively.

The Footy Show did 373,000.


The News was Seven’s most-watched show with 954,000 tuning in 6pm, then 937,000 staying on at 6.30pm.

The Chase Australia and Home and Away were its most-watched non-news programs. The former had 553,000 tuning in to Seven in the afternoon. Home and Away did 545,000.


The channel won the Thursday night TV audience by a narrow margin of 0.1%. It had a primary share of 18.9%.

The winning night was helped by the success of The Bachelor and Googlebox Australia, which ranked #3 and #6.

The Bachelor was the most-watched non-news show of the night. An audience of 882,000 watched Shannon telling Nick that he hadn’t really got to know her and he should’ve given her another day. This departure from the house had all the remaining Bachelorettes in tears.

Earlier in the night, The Project had 514,000 watching. Author Liane Moriarty was the special guest on the show.


The channel had four programs in the top 20 last night. The News had 652,000 watching, followed by 7.30 on 492,000.

Grand Designs Australia was ABC’s most-watched non-news show with 399,000. Loch Ness did 343,000.
