Tuesday Ratings | SAS AUSTRALIA wins big; BLUEY beats everything on 10

Seven lean into the third last ep of their celebrity torture porn series to take the night.

SAS Australia (668,000) has another free run, though slips a little from last night. Can they bring it home next week? Home and Away (580,000) solid but not enough to win the timeslot, and a repeat of Sean Connery film The Rock (317,000) draws enough eyes to help Seven win first in both primary (22.4%) and network (30.8%) shares.

A Current Affair (719,000) owns 7pm still, though at 7:30pm it’s a whole other story without The Block. RBT (440,000), followed by Australian Crime Stories (359,000) and a promo/tease for new Stan series For Life (174,000) good but not good enough to lift it to a win. Nine well off the pace though land second in both primary (18.1%) and network (26%) shares.

Tuesdays on the ABC are proving to be up and down. 7:30 (609,000) varies based on guests and host, Outback Ringer (364,000) not doing anything amazing in first run TV, and the 8:30pm sports doco slot also up and down with Capturing Cricket: Steve Waugh in India (383,000) drawing the best 8:30pm numbers for the night. Searching for Superhuman (154,000) now only for the fans, with ABC securing third in both primary (12.2%) and network (18.1%) shares.

The Project (293,000 6:30pm; 438,000 7pm) proving to be the best of a bad bunch for 10. Nothing better than a repeat of Ambulance Australia (194,000) after 7:30pm and that’s horrendous. Even a new episode of NCIS: Los Angeles (121,000) at 9pm didn’t garner any attention, meaning 10 were lucky to slide into fourth in both primary (8.2%) and network (15.4%) shares.

Heeler-watch™: Bluey (459,000 am; 230,000 pm) just too much fun and far too good to ignore. So good in fact the morning episode rated 11th overall, and better than everything–EVERY👏THING👏–10 had to offer.

Sunrise (263,000) wins breakfast again, ahead of The Today Show (213,000) and ABC Breakfast (203,000 [131,000 ABC; 72,000 ABC News])
