TEN’s Bachelorette is poised for a big finish tonight after being Wednesday’s top entertainment show at 1.03m viewers. It left Border Security with 881,000 and The Block with 801,000 viewers.
Amongst the other results last night, ABC’s Gruen did well with 904,000, while SBS coded two Fargo episodes as one, at an average of 229,000 across both.
But the real lesson from Wednesday was one of learning to keep your lead-in audience, as viewers show they are hitting their remote buttons.
TEN’s 1.03m dropped to 453,000 for Madam Secretary. ABC’s 904,000 dropped to 660,000 for The Ex-PM (down from 803,000 last week). Nine’s audience for Celebrity Apprentice (561,000) fell to just 158,000 for something called Extreme Phobias. Seven had some drops too, but they were less dramatic, which helped it to win the night.
Seven network won with 27.2% then Nine 25.8%, TEN 21.6%, ABC 18.6% and SBS 6.9%.
