No one has made this yet, so I'll be reporting it here.

Sevenís brash news mini-golf extravaganza Holey Moley has launched to 983,000 metro viewers on Monday, in a heated TV war.

It beat out Nineís Married at First Sight: Grand Reunion on 781,000 and the return of The Amazing Race Australia on 501,000.

10ís heavily promoted reality race was fourth in its slot behind ABCís 7:30 (577,000) and Four Corners (576,000).

Sevenís new mini-golf show, produced by Eureka, also topped the demos and helped Seven to a 29.7% win. Nine followed at 28.5% then 10 17.9%, ABC 16.7% and SBS 7.2%.

Seven News topped the night at 1.04m.

2021 survey officially begins this Sunday.

OzTAM Overnights: Monday 1 February 2021

This is not good news at all, however, offical ratings donít start until Sunday February 7, so hopefully ratings will approve from Leg 4 onwards.

Down to 493,000 for episode two.

Basically the only good news is if you start at rock bottom it's very difficult to go down by much.

Holey Moley dipped in its second outing but still won the coveted 7:30 slot.

Sevenís mini-golf drew 737,000 metro viewers and topped the demos, down from its 983,000 debut. In Perth, where a lockdown is underway, it doubled the competition.

Nineís Travel Guides followed with 641,000 with The Amazing Race Australia down slightly to 493,000 but ahead of 7:30 (472,000) and Foreign Correspondent (359,000).

The Good Doctor led later at 415,000, defeating a Who Wants to Be a Millionaire special (337,000) then Designing a Legacy (322,000).

Seven News topped the night at 991,000.

OzTAM Overnights: Tuesday 2 February 2021.

I suppose the only positive outta this, is that the offical ratings havenít actually started yet, but we seriously need to pick up our game if we wanna see a Season 6

Let's hope the second week of episodes improve. It starts on a new night next week, Sunday, and won't air on Wednesday at all. I think by the end of the next set of episodes, we'll know for sure the way this season is heading towards, ratings wise.

I'd probably say though that if we start going below 400K, so starting at anything 399K and below, we should be very concerned (if you aren't concerned already); that's at a level where the show could actually be pulled from broadcast.

I am not expert on ratings but should we really consider amount of viewers to be that important? I understand these numbers you are posting are ALL viewers who watched the show which means also kids and old people who are not demographic advertisers looking for.

https://tvtonight.com.au/2021/02/wednesday-3-february-2021.html

Check this site. Episode 3 was tied for 1st in 18-49 demographic and 2nd in 16-39 democraphic overnight. I mean TV is dying and numbers are getting lower and lower each year... We should consider overall rank of the show in the key demographics, imo. Which is not that bad?

If it goes below 400k, it'll get pulled from Primetime. It was *15th* last night, and fourth in its timeslot (by about 100,000 in the big cities, and about 200k over the country). It's not like the US where it lives and dies on the demo - in pretty much every other country in the world, viewers is what matters, and for whatever reason viewers don't like TARAU.

The return of Tom Gleesonís Hard Quiz has caused headaches for commercial reality shows.

Hard Quiz won its slot at 622,000 viewers, leading the entertainment pack.

Travel Guides was next at 600,000, leaving Holey Moley to fall to 543,000 and The Amazing Race Australia at 447,000. While Holey Moley copped a substantial slide from its Monday debut, it still emerged a winner in the demos.

A return by The Weekly with Charlie Pickering also led after 8:30 at 577,000 (notwithstanding reality shows wrapping) followed by the debut of Aftertaste was 479,000.

Seven still led in shares at 27.8% then Nine 25.2%, ABC 19.8%, 10 19.6% and SBS 7.7%.

Yeah. The thing is Holey Moley's ratings might be down 40%, but it's still doing significantly higher than TAR, aaaaand the people who are jumping ship from HM very decidedly aren't switching to TAR. And two nights out of three it's finished fourth in a ratings system with three major networks. Like, given the amount of money they've spent on this show and the prestige they're clearly tried to get, this is a bit like the US version of Dancing with the Stars getting its ass handed to it by a show on PBS. These numbers are a NIGHTMARE for Channel Ten, and it's not just this show it affects: these numbers are going to affect both The Cube (premiering Feb 24) and Masterchef (taking TAR's timeslots after it finishes), because nobody's here to see the promos. And to make matters even worse, it's up against the Australian Open tennis the next few weeks. It's going to get SLAUGHTERED.

It's also rating remarkably well outside the big cities. HM added 340k yesterday (as opposed to 160k for TAR).

Yeah, also keep in mind that if the show isn't the best for Americans it's probably dead boring for Australians.

As Americans, we're not familiar with the places they're visiting, it's all new to us. For Australians, most of them likely are.

Really it's kind of like Australian's family edition of the amazing race.

Really it's kind of like Australian's family edition of the amazing race.

The Gold Coast is certainly a place everyone knows (it's the largest city that's not a state capital, and it hosted the last Commonwealth Games) and Longreach is reasonably known (it's where Qantas was founded) and the Daintree Rainforest is known in general, but I wouldn't call Mossman or Winton known locations. But then the problem is that Beau's all "What could be more Australian?" and... exactly, dude. Most country towns and many suburbs have a pub pretty much exactly like that. A show about travel isn't exciting when they're doing things you could do within a short walk of your own house. A race around Australia could have worked really well, but instead of selling the things that make the country so diverse they've gone for "what would a foreigner visiting this place for the first time, as their only experience with anything Australian, take away from their visit?"

Also they're selling this as "the toughest race ever" which is a bad approach at the best of times (previous seasons to claim it: Asia 3, US15, US16), but... like, imagine if that's what sold you on watching and then you got stuck watching an episode containing such difficult tasks as putting your hands into shoes, finding a clue on a billboard in an area with exactly one billboard, and riding a waterslide.

Yeah, this certainly is not the toughest race ever, that's for sure. It's definately on the easier side in terms of race courses

541k last night, which is by default the highest of the season. It still got beat by Grand Designs though.

Sunday is the least competitive night for about a month. Tennis starts today.

How has the late start impacted on the Australian Open audiences?

Night 1 of play -now out of school holidays- averaged 486,000 metro viewers for Nine, down on 2020ís first night of 634,000.

The Amazing Race Australia won its slot at 558,000 viewers then 7:30 (533,000), Holey Moley (528,000) and Australian Story (443,000).

Seven network won Monday with 28.7% then Nine 26.2%, 10 19.9%, ABC 18.2% and SBS 7.1%.

Seven News was #1 at 1.05m / 1.04m viewers with Home & Away as the top entertainment show on 587,000. The Chase drew 536,000 / 420,000 and The Rookie was 189,000. Earlier the Super Bowl attracted 279,000 rising to 319,000 for the Half Time Show.

Except it didn't. The figures for the tennis are an average for the entire broadcast, which didn't end until almost midnight. For the specific match that was against this, Nine got 605k viewers.

I'd also point out that Holey Moley is consistently picking up ~150-200k more viewers outside the main state capitals than this is, so there's a very real chance this "win" is actually yet another third place that's only appearing as such because of the vagaries of the Australian ratings system.

National figures for the 7:30pm timeslot yesterday:

Australian Open: 868,000 (539,000 metro)
Holey Moley: 768,000 (469,000 metro)
This: 712,000 (510,000 metro)

Also, the seven-day metro figures (that include streaming) are out for last Monday:

Holey Moley: 1,101,000
This: 596,000

Add in that HM has been consistently pulling 300k or more outside the major cities and this... has not... and that's an absolute disaster for this show. Like you're probably looking at 1.4-1.5 million versus 700-750k, even without regional streaming figures.
