ABC will be sorry to see Gruen Planet end its season. It was the only entertainment show over the magic million on television last night, pulling 1.00m viewers. Next week ABC1 fills the spot with Qi repeats, the channel’s very own Big Bang Theory (sorry, Mr. Fry!).
Paired with Ja’mie: Private School Girl, which slipped slightly to 880,000, the ABC1 double won their timeslots.
But the night belonged to Nine with a network share of 28.8% then Seven 26.7%, ABC 20.7%, TEN 19.2% and SBS 4.6%.
Nine News topped the night with 1.03m (Sydney may have 1 hour news but it’s abandoned the split coding), then Big Brother (842,000), A Current Affair (822,000), Hostages (642,000), Hot Seat (518,000) and CSI (349,000).
Seven News (1.02m) was best for Seven then Today Tonight (864,000), Home and Away (820,000), SlideShow (626,000), Movie: Jack and Jill (427,000) and Million Dollar Minute (408,000).
ABC1’s other titles were ABC News (764,000), 7:30 (769,000), Tractor Monkeys (496,000) and Agony Aunts (447,000).
The Bachelor (649,000) outrated Seven in its timeslot. Also for TEN were TEN Eyewitness News (584,000), Wonderland (516,000), The Project (481,000) and The Simpsons (320,000).
24 Hours in Emergency (236,000) led SBS ONE followed by Acid Ocean (201,000), World News Australia (151,000) and Being Overseas (74,000).
The Big Bang Theory on GO! topped multichannels with 311,000.
