Any wonder Nine forked out so much money for the NRL rights this week. Last night’s combo of NRL and The Footy Show helped it to a big evening share over its competitors.
Of course it helped that Seven flew up the equivalent of a white flag in Restaurant Revolution -they had more viewers with Lewis on 7TWO. At least TEN’s Bachelor is drawing a good crowd for TEN.
Nine network drew 31.5% then Seven 23.9%, TEN 22.2%, ABC 16.2% and SBS 6.2%.
Nine News (1.00m / 999,000) was best for Nine then A Current Affair (897,000), The Footy Show (671,000), Thursday Night NRL (590,000 in 2 cities), Hot Seat (588,000), Inside Story (308,000 in 3 cities) and Kings Cross ER (298,000 in 3 cities).
Seven News (880,000 / 848,000) led for Seven then Home and Away (653,000), Million Dollar Minute (396,000) and Restaurant Revolution (312,000).
The Bachelor trumped its timeslot at 911,000 for TEN. The Project was 630,000 / 480,000, TEN Eyewitness News was 538,000, Law and Order: SVU was 502,000 and Zoo was just 231,000.
ABC News led for ABC at 793,000 followed by 7:30 (636,000), Who’s Been Sleeping in My House?(486,000), the season final Glitch (383,000), Antiques Roadshow (318,000) and the season final for Dirty Laundry Live (274,000).
On SBS it was Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook Melbourne (305,000), French Food Safari (277,000), Ainsley Harriott’s Street Food (237,000), SBS World News (127,000) and Masters of Sex (105,000).
A new Lewis on 7TWO dominated multichannels at 354,000.
