Australia’s “Today” continues to see its ratings drop.

  • The show, which ousted longtime anchor Karl Stefanovic over the summer amid dipping ratings, debuted a new look and new hosts for 2019.
  • A new anchor, Deb Knight, took over the show.
  • Knight is joined by newsreader Tom Steinfort and entertainment reporter Brooke Boney.
  • Forecaster Steven Jacobs and finance reporter Ross Greenwood remain part of the show.
  • The ratings for the Jan. 13, 2019 edition dipped below the 200,000 mark.
  • Sunrise,” the Seven Network’s competing morning news, registered 266,000 viewers.
  • According to AdelaideNow.com, the show was expected to benefit from at least a small boost in viewers thanks to what it calls the “perve factor” — people tuning in just to catch a glimpse at the new lineup.
