After copping a hiding from Nine recently, Seven clawed back to a win on Tuesday night, thanks largely to Packed to the Rafters winning comfortably over Celebrity Apprentice. House Rules also managed to avoid a catastrophic drop.
Seven Network share was 29.1% then Nine 26.2%, TEN 20.4%, ABC 18.0% and SBS 6.4%.
Seven News (1.3m) was Seven’s best performer then Packed to the Rafters (1.26m), Today Tonight (1.15m), Home and Away (987,000), House Rules (954,000), Border Security: International (706,000), Deal or No Deal (580,000) and Travel Unravelled (410,000). Cougar Town was 147,000.
Nine News was #1 with 1.33m for Nine. The Block was 1.2m and A Current Affair was 1.02m. Celebrity Apprentice continues to fiddle with coding for no apparent reason. The Boardroom segment was 754,000 (unofficially the entire show would have averaged around 783,000, lower than most Celebrity Splash episodes). Hot Seat was 714,000 and Movie: Love and Other Drugs was 302,000.
NCIS was best for TEN with 768,000 / 724,000. The Biggest Loser was 690,000, TEN News was 663,000, The Project was 577,000. The Simpsons was 370,000.
ABC News (1.00m) topped ABC1 then New Tricks (843,000), 7:30 (822,000), Croc College (548,000), At the Movies (459,000) and Time Team (302,000).
The final Who Do You Think You Are? was 445,000 for SBS ONE then Insight (202,000), World News Australia (193,000) and Dateline (155,000).
Neighbours topped multichannels with 321,000.
