It was tight at the top, thanks again to the 6pm News, however Seven and 10 weren’t even in the hunt after 7pm.
Nine out-perform the other commercial networks by a significant measure. A Current Affair (714,000) bounces up from previous nights/week and wins the slot; Parental Guidance (536,000) the best of commercial primetime by far, though second in the slot; and their hastily put together special Finding Cleo (459,000) wins the later night with ease. Love Island Australia (203,000) sees a small overnight bounce too.
Nine first in both primary (19.1%) and network (29.3%) rankings.
Home and Away (533,000) has well settled into the mid-500s for Seven and that’ll do nicely for the summer thanks. Big Brother Australia VIP (375,000) was saved the ignominy of coming last commercially, however it was a distant third in the slot. America’s Got Talent (121,000) filled a sizeable gap in their later night schedule.
Seven second in both primary (19%) and network (27.8%) rankings.
Out of the blocks the ABC’s Wednesday is a winner. 7:30 (638,000) and primetime winner Hard Quiz (646,000) took 7:30pm easily. Gruen (642,000) also performed well as Frayed (206,000) slipped a little on last week though it’s doing solid business in Total TV. A repeat of Back (90,000) and Adam Hills: The Last Leg (73,000) helped Aunty into third overall.
ABC third in both primary (14.3%) and network (19.3%) rankings.
The Project (279,000 6:30pm; 391,000 7pm) was up on last week’s numbers though however still firmly camped in cancellation territory. The Batchelorette Australia (288,000) dropped significantly again and is now a primetime lead weight around 10’s neck. The premiere of Lie With Me (151,000) did nothing as an outcome (it has been rescheduled twice this year before kicking off tonight) and as it’s only 4 eps this goose is cooked. A new and then repeat ep of Bull (135,000; 99,000) only kept fans happy.
10 fourth in both primary (8.9%) and network (15.6%) rankings.
SBS run out their night with a repeat of Michael Mosley: Truth About Sleep (209,000), a repeat of Michael Palin in North Korea (190,000), and a new episode of Before We Die (UK) (114,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (5.3%) and network (8%) rankings.
16-39: Seven News 6pm (119,000) beats out Nine News 6:30pm, The Bachelorette Australia, Parental Guidance, and Nine News 6pm.
18-49: Seven News 6pm (230,000) defeats Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, Parental Guidance, and Seven News 6:30pm.
25-54: Nine News 6pm (299,000) comes in ahead of Nine News 6:30pm, Seven News 6pm, Parental Guidance, and Gruen.
Bluey – EV (158,000) on ABC Kids/TV Plus brought home another win for everyone’s favourite blue heeler pup.
The Today Show (290,000)
ABC Breakfast (245,000 (141,000 ABC; 104,000 ABC News))
