Without the usual fare across networks last night there were some interesting results.
It was a close game between all three commercial networks. Seven only just pipped TEN to win the night, with Nine a close third. And SBS lifted its share with profile shows.
Seven News (1.17m) and Today Tonight (1.08m) led for Seven followed by Home and Away on 958,000. There was a drop for World’s Strictest Parents (647,000) and a movie, The Boys Are Back, was just 428,000.
The Biggest Loser pulled 864,000 for TEN and managed to top all three demos. An NCIS repeat was 834,000 / 681,000 then Bondi Vet (778,000 / 759,000), TEN News (674,000) and The Project (476,000).
Nine News (1.11m) tied in Sydney and won in Melbourne and Brissy. ACA was 1.03m then Big Bang (878,000 / 825,000), 2 Broke Girls (697,000 / 636,000). Two and a Half Men was 458,000 and Top Gear just 332,000.
ABC News again won its timeslot on 985,000 but fell away to 624,000 for 7:30, lower than Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple (654,000) and Country Town Rescue (644,000).
Who Do You Think You Are? with Kerry O’Brien did great business for SBS ONE. At 623,000 it was just 1,000 short of beating his former 7:30. Insight was 338,000 and Dateline was 196,000.
Neighbours topped multichannels with 298,000.
