Channel 10’s Changing Rooms reboot, hosted by Natalie Bassingthwaighte, debuted to spectacularly low ratings on Wednesday night.

Just 304,000 viewers tuned in nationally to watch the much-anticipated season premiere, which is almost unheard of in the 7:30pm time slot.

In the five-city metro market, widely considered the most important for advertisers, Changing Rooms had an audience of just 204,000.

On Thursday, industry website TV Tonight described the figures as ‘alarming’.

Meanwhile, Channel Nine’s Married At First Sight had around six times the audience of Changing Rooms.

The controversial dating show boasted a metro viewership of 1.29 million, which swelled to 1.721 million nationally.

The second-place entertainment show of the night was Seven’s My Kitchen Rules, which had a metro audience of 766,000 (it’s lowest ever).

According to Mumbrella, Channel 10 had a disappointing main channel share of seven per cent on Wednesday.

This put the network behind Channels Seven and Nine as well as the ABC.
