Good news for Good Wife
2010 ratings have drawn first blood and it's good news for TEN and Seven.
The first day of the 2010 ratings season was good news for TEN and Seven.
The Seven Network won the night with a 30.5% share ahead of its rivals, but News bulletins notwithstanding it was the premiere of The Good Wife that took the biggest audience.
The Julianna Margulies drama took a cool 1.4m viewers for TEN, one of its best audiences in some time. In its new night Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation also performed with 1.32m viewers. Both TEN shows won all key demos.
Seven also scored with Air Ways (1.32m), Bones (1.21m) and Trishna & Krishna: The Quest for Separate Lives (1.16m). While Nine’s One Day Cricket managed 1.02m viewers, the network only defeated TEN in overall shares due to the extra push from GO!
On a tough night the ABC’s Inside the Firestorm took 639,000 and Collectors in its new slot managed 520,000.
Weekend Sunrise 304,000 was well clear of Weekend Today 245,000, winning all cities except Melbourne.
But the Sunday battlelines are far from established. Next Sunday sees the addition of Sunday Night, Border Security, Scrubs, more Cricket and the Olympics.
