If Lip Sync Battle keeps up these kinds of numbers you can bet your bottom dollar Nine will greenlight a local version (if they haven’t already).
Last night the show drew 1.09m viewers, in what must be some of the most cost-effective programming on the schedule. While that may include some spillage from The Voice, last week’s episode was only adjusted by 5,000 viewers, meaning this week’s will likely remain above the magic million.
Elsewhere last night Australian Story‘s profile of Gina Rinehart drew 862,000, much of the episode focussed on the Hancock history than recent events. Part 2 airs next week.
The Project had a strong second half, pipping Home and Away.
Nine network won with 29.3% then Seven 27.6%, TEN 19.1%, ABC 18.9% and SBS 5.0%.
