Dancing maintains numbers on Holden factor

They tuned in to see Mark Holden being a clown, and they tuned in again last night to see what he'd do next.

Dacing With the Stars followed up last week's figures of 946,000 metro viewers with 954,000 this week, and viewers were 'treated' to Mark Holden attempting to dance a paso doble to AD/DCs Highway to Hell while dressed as Russian president Vladimir Putin.

However given he was voted off this week, Dancing won't have the Holden carrot to keep viewers around next week.

It came in second place on the overnight OzTAM figures, and while The Project featured a five minute segment on The Bachelor's ex-fiancee Sam Frost and runner-up Lisa Hyde airing their views on Blake's new romance.

It would seem that the audience is suffering from Bachelor fatigue. While The Project managed to grab 783,000 viewers from the night, it wasn't close to the 1 million-plus boost it got from previous Bachelor follow-ups.

Elsewhere the ABC polled strong numbers with Kitchen Cabinet, featuring Bob Hawke. The show managed to attract 728,000 sets of eyeballs, and this led into a Gough Whitlam documentary double.

Meanwhile Ten's NCIS line-up performed well, but NCIS New Orleans fell out of the top 20.

The other talking point was the premiere of the second season of Recipe to Riches, which was up on last year's finale with 561,000 viewers. It also rated well with age 25-54s.

It was a narrow ratings win for Seven on the night, with a 28.4% share ahead of Nine's 26.5% audience.

Meanwhile Ten edged out the ABC with a 21.1% audience against the ABCs 19.4%.
