Nine’s Footy Show grand final spectaculars dominate night as The Bachelorette drops off

nrl footy showafl footy showThe Bachelorette posted its first audience decline of the series last night as Nine’s The Footy Show stole viewers from all competitors for its traditional grand final extravaganza.

Last week Ten’s dating show managed 973,000 viewers, but that dropped to 875,000 last night as The Footy Show topped the night with 987,000 viewers for a two hour show at 8.30pm.

Gogglebox returned at 8.40pm and managed 563,000 viewers, well up on the 495,000 viewers who watched the show when it first came to Australian screens in February, according too OzTam overnight metro ratings.

It helped Ten to an audience share of 15.3 per cent, well behind Nine’s 26.9 per cent but ahead of Seven’s 14.3 per cent on a night where no shows again beat the million mark.


Seven’s failure to trouble Nine and Ten last night came off the back of a rather muted lineup after its news offering, which managed 907,000 viewers at 6pm to hold off Nine News’ 860,000 in that timeslot.

However Nine’s 6.30pm news beat Seven with 860,000 viewers to 857,000.

Nine put up RBT (730,000) and Kings Cross ER (688,000) against The Bachelorette at 7.30pm and 8pm, while Seven had Home and Away at 7pm which had 677,000 for an hour-long run.

ABC’s Chaser’s Media Circus had 557,000 viewers at 8pm.
