Recently we’ve been seeing single shows cracking the magic million. Last night we had one show crack the magic 900,000. Doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Also worth noting is the gap has narrowed between Million Dollar Minute and Hot Seat this week. Will be interesting to watch how this impacts on 6pm bulletins.
Seven network won the night, just, with 28.4% share ahead of Nine’s 28.0%, ABC 19.0%, TEN 18.4% and SBS 6.2%.
Seven News (915,000 / 826,000) was best for Seven then Home and Away (777,000), Beauty and the Geek (593,000 / 578,000) and Million Dollar Minute (598,000).
Nine was under 900,000 the entire night with Nine News (894,000 / 889,000), A Current Affair (852,000), King’s Cross ER (683,000), Big Brother (543,000), Hot Seat (457,000). Movie: Contagion was 281,000.
ABC News (751,000) topped ABC then 7:30 (684,000), Catalyst (682,000), Upper Middle Bogan (645,000), It’s a Date (506,000) and QI (366,000).
TEN was under 600,000 for the night with TEN Eyewitness News (540,000), Madam Secretary (543,000), The Project (503,000 / 397,000) and Save with Jamie (457,000). SVU was 133,000.
The premiere of The Fall led the night for SBS ONE at 209,000 (it would have been higher had it been coded as 2 eps), The Little Paris Kitchen (193,000), The Incredible Spice Men (147,000) and SBS World News (119,000). Thai Street Food was 66,000.
A Touch of Frost was again best on multichannels at 289,000. ABC2’s Soul Mates premiered at 116,000.
