The network also garnered strong ratings for their interview with Melissa George which took Sunday Night to 727,000 and 8th spot.

Ten’s top rating show for the evening was new US drama Bull, at 8.15pm which came in 10th with 357,000 viewers, followed by Eyewitness News (12th, 330,000) and Bondi Rescue (13th, 326,000).

Sunday night’s fourth episode of The Biggest Loser: Transformed, featuring the competition’s first elimination, was hoped to aid the show’s plight.

Instead it came fourth in its time slot, with the ABC comfortably attracting more than twice the audience share with a combination of ABC News (788,000) and Grand Designs (743,000).

Network Ten were contacted for comment.
