Thursday Ratings | Most eyes in primetime on GOGGLEBOX AUSTRALIA; Seven finally win one


Amazing what happens when Nine don’t air an episode of Married at First Sight.

Huzzah! After over three weeks of not winning a night Seven bring it home with a triple Home and Away (443,000 avg), the penultimate episode of Wife Swap Australia (309,000) – which ticked up though lost the timeslot, and Busted in Bangkok (151,000). Congrats. Seven first in both primary (17.5%) & network (27%) shares.

Nine not even in the hunt after A Current Affair (649,000). Taronga: Who’s Who In The Zoo (177,000) fourth in the timeslot – and the first time they’ve been there in a while. US drama The Equalizer (230,000) ticked up a little with a returning audience, and Murder For Hire (135,000) lost it all again. Nine second in both primary (16.2%) & network (25.1%) shares.

Ten see a little hope after The Project (225,000 6:30pm; 383,000 7pm) finishes. Bondi Rescue (371,000) and Territory Cops (402,000) do alright business though third, however Gogglebox Australia (596,000) brings it home for a a big lift as the highest rating entertainment show for the night. Repeats of The Late Late Show with James Corden (246,000) and Law & Order: SVU (76,000) fill timeslots. 10 third for the first time this week in both primary (14.4%) & network (21.4%) shares.

ABC’s Thursday belies the effort. 7:30 (556,000) & Back Roads (499,000) win their timeslot, and even Q&A (339,000) gets a lift – in no small part to an all-female panel given the opportunity to react to the week in horrific politics. Kurt Fearnley’s One Plus One (187,000) and Aussie Inventions That Changed The World (126,000) don’t light any ratings fires though. ABC fourth in both primary (13.3%) & network (18.3%) shares.


Sunrise (255,000)
