It was Seven’s News product that continues to make all the difference as they lose primetime but win the night.
Home & Away (610,000) dips a little for Seven, as Big Brother (652,000) bounces up reasonably to be the highest-rating ep this week. It was second at 7:30pm. The night closes out with a repeat of MOVIE: Austin Powers in Goldmember (70,000). In AFL states you got The Front Bar (361,000) and Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back (65,000) as an alternative – no Austin Powers for you.
Seven first in both primary (21.1%) and network (29.1%) rankings.
A Current Affair (768,000) tilts up for Nine, as Travel Guides (719,000) finishes its run with its best numbers all season. Similarly, we said farewell to the townsfolk of Whyhope as the series finale of Doctor Doctor (516,000) delivers its biggest numbers all season too. Extraordinary People (76,000) complete Nine’s evening run.
Nine second in both primary (20.2%) and network (28.2%) rankings.
The Project (258,000 6:30pm; 474,000 7pm) also tilts up a little for 10, as does MasterChef Australia (582,000)–though it landed a reasonably distant third in the slot. A double repeat of Bull (254,000; 198,000) barely gathered interest.
10 third in both primary (11.8%) and network (19.5%) rankings.
7:30 (608,000) picked up again for the ABC, and the premiere of Win The Week (488,000) was met with lukewarm figures (it was clunky and needs more work, but it wasn’t horrible). Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (507,000) slips a little without the Hard Quiz lead-in. The premiere of Starstruck (280,000), paired with a quickly sliding Superwog (109,000), then followed by Adam Hills: The Last Leg (90,000) and the final repeat for this season of The Set (40,000) rounded out the night.
ABC fourth in both primary (11%) and network (15.1%) rankings.
SBS start with a repeat of Britain’s Cathedrals with Tony Robinson (158,000), and add in a repeat of Tonya Harding: The Price of Gold (130,000). First run documentary Marion Jones: Press Pause (73,000) completes their night.
SBS fifth in both primary (4.3%) and network (8.1%) rankings.
