Bachelor tops Demos, Seven wins Wednesday.

Ratings: After a tough week, Seven has scored a win on Wednesday -despite not winning timeslots until 9:30pm.


After a tough week in the ratings race, Seven has its first win of the week -despite not winning any timeslots until 9:30pm with Criminal Minds.

While it trailed Nine in primary share, Seven got over the line thanks again to its multichannels. While Nine won the early evening timeslots it dropped a bucketload when The Mysteries of Laura followed Hot Plate -Nine has already bumped the show to a later time next week.

  1. Seven just scraped in..and I think Mysteries of Laurie tanked…because few trusted Nine to treat it right…which they have not….
    A shame really….I believe it has been renewed for a 2nd series…I am going to try it on Jump in….but 4 episodes to catch up on….plus other things…(Madam Secretary…Bosch)….not sure how that will go…

  2. The Last Leg with John Cleese was hilarious last night altho’ most of the best jokes were from the three regulars. He can run quite well for someone with an artificial hip and knee.

  3. Ten needs to look long and hard at One and even Eleven. They constantly rate around 2-3% where 7Two/7Mate and Gem/GO rate much higher. One in particular, l feel, needs some serious reprogramming.

  4. Mysteries of Laura is not the best show but watchable – would have done alot better without the double episodes – we watched one of them last week, but not the next – saving for later – only to then see there were another two there from last night which I doubt we’ll get around to as there are many other shows we’ll watch before it.

    Why oh why do they all insist on double episodes all the time – for years ratings have shown doubles quickly kill off shows.
