The pack spreads at 7:30, and all-but dies after 9pm.
Nine kick of their night with A Current Affair (701,000) winning 7pm. Travel Guides (672,000) manages to win convincingly in the competitive 7:30pm timeslot, and at least managing to bounce into the late 600’s. Doctor Doctor (390,000) up on previous weeks, and a repeat of Kings Cross ER (100,000)
doesn’t draw much of an audience.
Nine first (by the slimmest of margins) in both primary (19.7%) and network (27.6%) rankings.
Seven’s night starts with Home & Away (580,000) doing it’s best though down on last night, and still (somehow) Seven’s best. Big Brother Australia (558,000)
continues the slide from earlier in the week and is pushed into fourth behind the ABC and 10 in the slot(!). Repeating MOVIE: The Hangover II (246,000)
appears to be Seven’s programmers sending us a subtle message (hey guys – schedule The Hangover III next week if you’re in trouble!).
Seven second in both primary (19.4%) and network (27.2%) rankings.
Wednesday always picks up for the ABC, with 7:30 (623,000) and Hard Quiz (672,000) sliding into second in the timeslot against its commercial rivals (652,000 average). Hard Quiz managed to draw the same audience as Nine’s winner at 7:30! Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (572,000) heralds itself with a welcome ratings return, and You Can’t Ask That (383,000) delivers an expected audience given the episode has been on iview for five weeks. A new episode of QI (245,000) and a repeat of The Set (77,000) sends the audience to bed happy.
ABC third in primary (13.2%) and fourth in network (18.3%) rankings.
10’s night delivers another episode of The Project (289,000 6:30pm; 428,000 7pm) which is another ratings disappointment. MasterChef Australia (561,000) up on last night though still not its highest for the week. Completing the evening a double repeat of Bull (252,000; 185,000). Sums up 10’s chances, really.
10 fourth in primary (11.3%) and third network (18.5%) rankings.
SBS don’t offer much resistance with Tony Robinson’s History of Britain (169,000), a repeat of Jack the Ripper: Case Re-opened (189,000), and
Bloodlands (118,000). At least some people tuned in.
SBS fifth in both primary (5%) and network (8.3%) rankings.
16-39: Big Brother (133,000) tops this demo, followed closely by MasterChef Australia, Nine News 6pm and 6:30pm, and Seven News 6:30pm.
18-49: Nine News 6pm (237,000) takes the win here, chased by Big Brother, Seven News 6pm, MasterChef Australia, and Nine News 6:30pm.
25-54: Nine News 6pm (312,000) leads the pack, with Nine News 6:30pm, Seven News 6pm and 6:30pm, and Travel Guides all following on.
A repeat of NCIS (159,000) on 10 Bold managed to stave off the attack by ABC Kids/TV Plus juggernaut Bluey.
The Today Show (219,000)
ABC Breakfast (180,000 (115,000 ABC; 65,000 ABC News))
