Nine may have its first network win for the 2017 ratings year -but the real story was TEN topping primary channels.
I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here (910,000) trumped RBT (626,000) and a failed Chase: MKR special on just 479,000 -on those numbers next week’s edition will surely be bumped.
Gogglebox also won its timeslot for TEN on 725,000 well in front of Newton’s Law (546,000) down from 695,000 last week. Nine appears to be “giving away” a new Big Bang episode at 615,000 viewers. Is that a record low for a new episode?
Seven’s consolation prize was that Seven News topped the night with 937,000 viewers on a night were nobody cracked the magic million. Already.
