The shows may have been in the headlines for the wrong reasons but last night The Footy Show hit #1 with their grand final editions, leading Nine to a clear win for the night. The AFL edition in Melbourne was double the NRL in Sydney.
Thanks to a new public holiday it was the eve of a long weekend in Melbourne, leaving no show to top the magic million.
TEN had a good night with The Bachelorette and the return of Gogglebox while Seven’s best was with Seven News.
Nine network won with 35.6% then Seven 22.2%, TEN 21.1%, ABC 16.1% and SBS 5.0%.
The Footy Show (987,000) topped the night for Nine then Nine News (886,000 / 860,000), A Current Affair (815,000), RBT (730,000), King’s Cross ER (688,000) and Hot Seat (448,000).
Seven News (907,000 / 857,000) led for Seven then Home and Away (677,000), The Chase (522,00 / 382,000), Border Security International (331,000 in 2 cities) and movie: About Time (297,000).
The Bachelorette (875,000) again topped TEN’s night. The Project was 590,000 / 428,000, Gogglebox returned to 563,000, TEN Eyewitness News was 461,000 and Law and Order: SVU was 213,000.
ABC News (766,000), 7:30 (609,000), The Chaser’s Media Circus (557,000), The Real Mary Poppins (355,000), Antiques Roadshow (299,000) and The Honourable Woman (253,000) comprised ABC’s night.
On SBS it was Luke Nguyen’s France (191,000), Ainsley Harriott’s Street Food (186,000), SBS World News (105,000) and Nigella Express (74,000). Masters of Sex was 70,000.
Big Bang Theory may have topped GO! for the very last time on 294,000 given 7mate is picking up episodes (Nine still has Seasons 8 and 9).
