Nine pulled a huge audience on Thursday night, thanks largely to its annual (AFL) Footy Show extravaganza.
Shows by both codes combined to a huge 1.2m viewers. In Melbourne, where it aired at 8:30pm it attracted 583,000. The Player Revue, including with Shane Crawford dressed as P!nk, was another crowd pleaser. Nine took the evening with a whopping 34.9% share -more than 10% clear of Seven.
Glee‘s second episode landed at 976,000. Despite winning key demo groups, it wasn’t quite the figure that matched the expense of bringing so many of the cast here. Still, it’s early days and those kind of investments do resonate long term. Rush took 1m with tough competition in its hometown.
Gary Unmarried was again tricky for Seven, at 823,000, proving the network was right to pull it from future schedules.
