Here’s how ‘Trial By Kyle’ rated on Network Ten this week
Kyle Sandilands‘ latest venture into television delivered 385,000 metro viewers for his Thursday night Pilot Week special, Trial By Kyle.
Indeed, most viewers of the Judge Judy-style show were in Sydney (137,000).
That number ballooned to 520,000 viewers across the country including regional markets.
The KIIS FM Breakfast host’s show was expectedly trashy with Kyle passing judgement on a botched boob job, and a couple of mates who had broken “the bro code” (with expert help from Shannon Noll) among other petty disputes.
The show also generated a solid buzz on social media.
Plenty of comments on Twitter pertained to the show being trashy but entertaining.
There were also wraps on Kyle’s sidekick, lawyer and former Bachelor contestant Anna Heinrich.

I can see it working, just needed a few more fireworks from those before the very well groomed judge. Love @ANNAJHEINRICH work too

OMG. I hate myself. I hate myself. I hate myself. But I want to watch 100 more episodes of #TrialByKyle. It is perfect trash television. Just… perfect. DON'T @ ME I ALREADY SAID I HATE MYSELF. DAMN IT.

Now the only question remains whether the show gets picked up for a full season.
Earlier this week Sportsbet had the show at the longest odds to be commissioned for a series.
