ABC also had a strong showing, but TEN’s Party Tricks found the ratings a bit like political polls with the numbers going against them. It lost 234,000 viewers and fell to fourth in its timeslot. Unlike last week, this time it can’t blame the lead-in which ranked higher. Hopefully it can pick up some swinging viewers through word of mouth.
Seven network won the night with 32.1% then Nine 26.8%, ABC 21.1%, TEN 16.3% and SBS 3.8%.
