Resurrection vs Big Bang equals big ratings
Ratings: Resurrection and The Big Bang Theory go to war in overnight figures, but Seven wins the night.
Last week Resurrection knocked it out of the park with nearly 2m overnight viewers but, as invariably happens with sci-fi content, it has begun shedding viewers, down 20% on last week. Last night it pulled 1.55m viewers -none too shabby at all, and enough to win its timeslot. The Big Bang Theory was nipping at its heels at 1.51m viewers, but The Block also ran overtime.
NCIS, once a licence to print money, was miles behind at just 417,000, clearly impacted by reality shows wrapping beyond the 8:30 junction.
Seven network won the night with a share of 34.0% then Nine 31.8%, ABC 16.4%, TEN 13.4% and SBS 4.3%.
