Wednesday line-up booming at ABC
Spicks and Specks, The Chaser farewell and United States of Tara powered the ABC last night.
The ABC’s stole a big audience last night, especially with its line up from 8:30-10pm. It was #1 for this period.
The finale of The Chaser was a perfect platform to launch United States of Tara.
The network really hit the top when Spicks and Specks took 1.49m with 1.45m of them staying to watch the Chaser team’s exit, a much bigger retention than usual.
And a mammoth 1.27m stuck around to watch Toni Collette’s chameleon performance as Tara -an especially hot result for that time of night.
The other big winner on the night was Seven’s second ep of World’s Strictest Parents, pulling in just under 1.6m.
With the ABC powering, there had to be some losers -Network TEN. It landed fourth for the evening with its News and Simpsons the best drawcards.
Meanwhile Australia’s Perfect Couple slipped further, now down to 762,000. With figures like that in that timeslot, it will have to move.
But if there is anyone who should really be happy about last night, it would surely be the team from The Librarians. It is now perfectly set up for a season return in between Spicks and Tara next week.
