The ‘sexy’ new BIG BROTHER AUSTRALIA continues to slide.

Channel 9

Another strong start for Nine with A Current Affair (646,000), though the wheels fell off for My Mum, Your Dad (327,000) as it got shunted into third place in primetime. Repeats of Paramedics (201,000), Embarrassing Bodies (126,000), and New Amsterdam (47,000) helped keep the later evening afloat.

Nine first in primary (18.7%) and second in network (26.1%) rankings.

Channel 7

Home & Away (440,000) remained solid (though sub-500k) for Seven, who benefitted from a hastily put together 7News Spotlight: Remembering Johnny Ruffo (361,000) which stole second in primetime to salvage some of the damage done by the new season of Big Brother Australia (130,000) which last night sank to a new low. Late night dramas The Endgame (63,000) and A Friend of the Family (27,000) slid into the close.

Seven second in primary (17%) and first in network (27.4%) rankings.

Channel 10

The Project (145,000 6:30pm; 247,000 7pm) remains solid, as does Dessert Masters (451,000) for 10, and this consistency landed the show the timeslot win! The Cheap Seats (348,000) again the best thing after 8:30pm, before repeats of NCIS (100,000) and NCIS: Los Angeles (57,000) close out the night.

10 third in both primary (13%) and network (19.5%) rankings.


7:30 (419,000) and the season two finale of Take 5 with Zan Rowe (277,000) dropped into fourth for the ABC, followed by the excellent documentary Rose Gold (160,000) and a repeat of Tom Gleeson’s Secrets of the Australian Museum (113,000).

ABC fourth in both primary (11.1%) and network (16.7%) rankings.

Small interest in Great British Railway Journeys (131,000) and The Lost City of Melbourne (200,000) on SBS, adding another quiet night for the end of the year.

SBS fifth in both primary (6.1%) and network (10.4%) rankings.
