Do any of the networks really care about Thursdays anymore? Doesn’t look like it.
A Current Affair (720,000) bounces back up for Nine into Thursday. Then, depending on the kind of football you like, the following programs appear on different channels in your area or may not even appear at all: NRL Thursday Night Footy (334,000), Thursday Night Knock-Off (134,000), RBT (225,000), Paramedics (164,000), and King’s Cross ER (124,000).
Nine first in primary (19.3%) and second in network (26.6%) rankings.
The split triple ep of Home & Away (561,000; 519,000 “late”) starts OK, though down on last night’s numbers, however that’s because of the no-FTA-AFL Thursday. Then, depending on the kind of football you like, the following programs shuffle in order in the schedule: The Front Bar (388,000), 10 Years Younger In 10 Days (171,000) and How To Look Good Naked (85,000)
Seven second in primary (18.8%) and first in network (28.3%) rankings.
The Project (253,000 6:30pm; 416,000 7pm) continues its slide into the end of the week, though MasterChef Australia (578,000) does take out the timeslot win for 10. A double repeat of Law & Order: SVU (207,000; 187,000) and a new ep of Blue Bloods (120,000) completes a disappointing later evening.
10 third in both primary (12%) and network (19.5%) rankings.
7:30 (515,000) maintains some rage in the 500’s, as Foreign Correspondent (429,000) ticks up from last week marginally. So does Q+A (319,000), even though the latter is in the ratings toilet. A Life In Ten Pictures (188,000) complete’s the ABC’s night.
ABC fourth in both primary (11.4%) and network (17%) rankings.
SBS’s night runs as expected given what’s offered: Robson Green: Walking Hadrian’s Wall (202,000), The Unusual Suspects (88,000), and the season four finale of The Handmaid’s Tale (122,000)
SBS fifth in both primary (4.6%) and network (8.5%) rankings.
16-39: MasterChef Australia (136,000) wins, followed by Nine News 6:30pm, The Project 7pm, Seven News 6pm, and Nine News 6pm.
