A tale of two significantly different programs for 10, while Seven’s soapie does some heavy lifting to win the 7:30pm slot.
Seven’s Thursday now always starts with a triple ep of Home and Away (585,000 7pm; 555,000 7:30pm/8pm “late”), and it was enough to help them pip Nine for the night. Afterwards in BNE/SYD you were served MOVIE: 27 Dresses (98,000); meanwhile in MEL/ADL/PER the schedule gave you a repeat of SAS Australia (76,000). The Front Bar (382,000) appeared in all markets in different timeslots.
Seven first in both primary (20.6%) and network (29.7%) rankings.
A Current Affair (686,000) slips significantly for Nine, and while RBT (519,000) does admirably it only landed second in the slot. Epstein’s Shadow: Ghislaine Maxwell (290,000) barely raised a flutter, and Reported Missing (166,000) was largely ignored.
Nine second in both primary (18.1%) and network (26%) rankings.
10 are in all sorts of trouble. The Project (255,000 6:30pm; 440,000 7pm) down again under 500k for the 7pm half, and Making It Australia (401,000) sinks further with its second ep…fourth in the slot(!). What a shame. Gogglebox Australia (610,000) the biggest entertainment program of the night and affected by the smaller lead-in. Repeats of The Cheap Seats (218,000) and Blue Bloods (91,000) complete the schedule.
10 third in both primary (13.7%) and network (20.5%) rankings.
The 7:30 (589,000)/Foreign Correspondent (381,000) land the ABC in third in the slot, however Q+A (267,000) dips again…this is starting to look like it ebbs and flows based on host choice. A Life In Ten Pictures (161,000) rounds out the night.
ABC fourth in both primary (11.2%) and network (15.7%) rankings.
Walking Britain’s Lost Railways (170,000) starts SBS’s Thursday with their best numbers, then parlays into Battle of Alcatraz (136,000) and The Victim (69,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.1%) and network (8.2%) rankings.
16-39: Gogglebox Australia (167,000) beat out Nine News 6pm, The Project 7pm, Nine News 6:30pm, and Seven News 6pm.
18-49: Gogglebox Australia (300,000) triumphant, followed by Seven News 6pm, Nine News 6pm, Seven News 6:30pm, and Nine News 6:30pm.
25-54: Gogglebox Australia (331,000) takes the triple demo win, ahead of Nine News 6pm, Seven News 6pm, Nine News 6:30pm, and Seven News 6:30pm.
ABC News Mornings (150,000) on ABC NEWS took out the multi-channel race for Thursday.
The Today Show (257,000)
ABC Breakfast (209,000 (120,000 ABC; 89,000 ABC News))
