The first night for the new-look 7:30 may not have won its timeslot but it still did relatively good business for ABC1 pulling 805,000 viewers.
Most reviews for the show under Leigh Sales and Chris Uhlmann are generally positive, branding it as a case of “Do not adjust your set.”
But it was My Kitchen Rules that again ruled he slot with an impressive 1.4m viewers ahead of Glee on 1.02m and Two and a Half Men on 903,000. A new Mythbusters was 323,000 for SBS.
A Current Affair‘s interview with former Hey Dad! star Sarah Monahan gave it a win against Today Tonight with 1.15m over 1.14m. The scandal gave it a win where last week’s TV reunions with Young Talent Time and Prisoner could not.
With the good lead in, Conviction Kitchen (942,000) also won its new slot of 8:30pm over This is Your Life (774,000), House (733,000), Four Corners (724,000) and a first-run Man vs Wild (362,000).
At 9:30pm Brothers and Sisters (768,000) took first place over Q & A (620,000), Good News Week (538,000) and a disappointing result for Parkinson: The Frost Interview (461,000) -will Nine now run Frost in Parkinson in the same slot next week? Doubtful.
Seven easily won the night.
