There were Documentaries on animals, celebrities, families, and terrorists last night.
Tuesdays have long been the domain of ABC and SBS docos but last night all three commercial networks gave primetime allocation to the genre. Coincidentally, both Nine and SBS screened versions of Who Do You Think You Are?
It follows from recent docos covering everything from cat videos to sugar, diets, fats and even the KKK on commercial networks.
Seven’s Oddest Animals Couples was the most successful of those last night at 656,000. TEN’s British buy-in My Son the Jihadi was just 290,000, probably unable to gain much attention without previous docos in the slot. ABC’s Making Families Happy ended with 312,000.
