Nine running strong (but can it last?); Seven laying fallow, ready for a bunch of new shows next week; and 10 up and down in one night.
A Current Affair (756,000)wins t he slot though soft as per most of last week, as The Block (944,000) powers on to win primetime heading into its final week for the year. Love Island Australia (285,000) draws its usual overnight audience as Total TV reveals it’s catch-up and BVOD that has a larger audience. A double repeat of Kath & Kim (115,000; 97,000) runs out the schedule.
Nine first in both primary (21.5%) and network (30.2%) rankings.
Seven sees Home and Away (598,000) pootle along just sub-600k still, however it’s SAS Australia: Hell Week (348,000) that is struggling significantly with its finale tomorrow night not coming quick enough. A repeat of MOVIE: Cold Pursuit (133,000) draws a small yet loyal audience.
Seven second in both primary (15.7%) and network (23.7%) rankings.
The Project (261,000 6:30pm; 439,000 7pm) still trundling along delivering diabolical numbers for 10 in Q4, not really helping Celebrity MasterChef Australia (527,000) which has to do its own heavy lifting. Have You Been Paying Attention? (695,000) by far the best for the network, and managed to slide up every so slightly on last week’s numbers. Just For Laughs: Uncut (224,000) and a repeat of Just For Laughs (127,000) are kinda watched by some people.
10 third in both primary (14.6%) and network (21.1%) rankings.
7:30 (524,000) and a revisit ep of Australian Story (549,000) does solid business to be competitive with the other primetime programs for the ABC, landing squarely in third in the slot. Four Corners (528,000) drop a bombshell on a specific cosmetic “surgeon”, which gives a little bump to Media Watch (503,000). A repeat of The Detectives (207,000) fills out the night.
ABC fourth in both primary (13.4%) and network (18%) rankings.
SBS’s Monday rolled out with a repeat of Britain’s Most Historic Towns (162,000), Saved By A Stranger (90,000), and 24 Hours in Emergency (120,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.2%) and network (6.9%) rankings.
