That allowed Seven to finish the night around 10 points share ahead of Nine. It did fare a little better in the demos than in Total People.

OzTAM Overnights: Wednesday 15 April 2015


  1. Anyone noticed how “Home and Away’ continues to go down in nunbers, remember when they regularly topped a million every night? Is age finally wearying this old show or is it just time to wind it all up of pass it over to Seven 2 ? Thoughts anyone? The last time I saw it, it seemed to be stuck in a recurring pattern of re run storylines with different characters. Also losing the Younes, peacocke team hasnt helped.

  2. Criminal Minds is doing pretty well for a show in its 10th year – how many other shows in their 10th years still pull those figures (besides Home & Away/Neighbours)?

  3. Not surprised The Amazing 90s bombed. The first half of the decade was great but it all went pair-shaped the moment John Howard was elected. From that time on the decade was a train wreck. A pity they couldn’t have done “The Amazing 1990-95”.

  4. Enjoyed TV last night criminal minds, sons of anarchy and the glades on one and hardcore pawn and baggage battles on 7mate. PVR workout.

  5. Happy seeing ABC brekkie show going up in numbers. People constantly complain about the ridiculous amount of adds on Sunrise and Today in the mornings. Maybe their threats to change to ABC are becoming reality.

  6. Criminal Minds has been ratings solidly, (with <50s too), on Wednesday's during Winter for nearly a decade.
    The Amazing 90s cost bugger all and rated well with <50s so Nine will be happy.
    They all trounced Wonderland.
