Nine’s COPS thump TEN’s Rush
Two locally produced police dramas going head to head results in a win for Nine at TEN's expense.
Nine’s new drama COPS L.A.C. premiered to 1.16m viewers last night, which while only an OK figure was enough to damage Rush on TEN, which sank to 668,000.
The head to head programming of two locally produced police dramas seems particularly disingenuous on Nine’s part, but commercial television has never been about doing anybody any favours. So far the show has received mixed reviews, but a win is a win.
Seven’s X Factor, which ran in different times in different cities due to AFL scheduling, won the night with 1.36m viewers. Despite its tepid debut on Monday, the show has travelled well throughout the rest of the week.
Best for TEN was Bondi Vet on 1.04m and Recruits on 878,000.
Sunrise is on a roll right now with 408,000 over Today‘s 324,000. On Wednesday it was up to 424,000.
Nine won its second night of the week.
