Welcome to Thursday nights, where ABC News, 7:30 and Jack Irish all won their slot.
That may be partly because NRL plays in select markets on Nine, but that’s the way the numbers fell down. It’s worth noting Nine had their best share of the week and won the night.
It’s also worth noting how dismal 7flix is doing with a paltry 0.6% share last night, barely ahead of NITV’s 0.3%. The best it could manage was 29,000 for a movie 48 Hours. Programming and access combined have led to a disappointing start.
Nine network won with 29.8% then Seven 25.7%, ABC 19.6%, TEN 17.7% and SBS 7.1%.
Nine News topped the night with 961,000 / 957,000 then A Current Affair (654,000 in 4 cities), Hot Seat (475,000), Thursday NRL (433,000 in 2 cities) and The Footy Show (367,000 in 3 cities).
Seven News (926,000 / 857,000) led for Seven then Home and Away (660,000), The Chase (526,000 / 353,000), The Big Bang Theory (432,000 / 397,000) and Movie: Just Like Heaven (293,000).
ABC News (746,000) and 7:30 (683,000) scored for ABC followed by Jack Irish (673,000), Hatch Match & Dispatch (508,000) and No Offence (329,000).
On TEN it was Territory Cops (515,000), Bondi Rescue (512,000), The Project (509,000 / 404,000), TEN Eyewitness News (484,000) and Law and Order: SVU (384,000 / 304,000).
In Defence of Food (271,000), What’s the Right Diet For You? (181,000), The Bridge (116,000) and SBS World News (107,000) comprised SBS.
Shaun the Sheep topped multichannels with 244,000.
