New local shows are still the focus of Tuesday ratings shifts, with good news for Seven.

Wanted lifted in its fourth outing, up from 899,000 last week to 962,000 last night. The show will end next week with a double finale. By contrast Nine’s Habibs slipped from 896,000 to 800,000 -possibly with TEN’s Celebrity running until 9:15 having some impact.

The other new entry, ABC’s doco Afghanistan: Inside Australia’s War also dropped from 489,000 to 375,000.

Seven network won the night with a 33.0% share then Nine 25.4%, TEN 19.2%, ABC 15.8% and SBS 6.7%.

        1. Most recent Guide info supplied by TEN has 8:30pm. If it was updated to 9pm OzTAM info may correspond. In any case the post indicates it was later than OzTAM preliminary so I am comfy this is correct, adjusted figures will reflect this.

        2. And when was it advertised at 9pm?
          The series tag on my fetch box schedued the episode at 8.45pm yesterday morning. So it mustve been a really late change and not good enough.
          Next weeks episode is schedued at 8.30pm but we all know thats going to be a lie.

          1. It was a very late change, I pressed the record button towerds the end on IMaCGMOoH, because I was curious to see the outcome of Fitzy and Wippa and it cut out well before the end.

    1. Print 8.30pm.
      Before yesterday afternoon advertised on Ten for 8.30pm.
      My EPG said 8.30pm when I checked yesterday morning.
      Yet it starts around 9.15pm.
      Sugar coat it all you like, not good enough.

    2. Good on you William, blindly leaping to Ten’s defence again. The online TV guide I use still has NCIS starting at 8:30. That means it started 45 minutes late in my book.

      1. Let me just bang the X-Files drum again. Not a single episode started or finished at the advertised times; and not a single episode started or finished at my EPG times. I managed to capture just one complete episode by setting the recorder for an hour and a half – five minutes early and twenty five minutes later than the advised times.

      2. Then how come I saw it advertised for 9pm. It must’ve been a late addition. It was advertised during B&B that it will be shown at 9pm. Ten updated the times for the show just yesterday

        1. So 4 hours before something airs is long enough notice to alter the majority of your prime time schedule? And we wonder why Ten are struggling to stay third…..
          For a Network that claims to be viewer friendly to attract a share of the already fragmented market, last night is something they really don’t want to repeat any time in the future.

          1. It is actually a lot longer, as it was something like 7 hours notice of change. Whether or not it was changed earlier remains to be seen.

          2. B&B 4.30pm. NCIS supposed to start at 8.30pm. That’s 4 hours. Same day 45 minute changes to most of your prime time schedule are ridiculous, all its going to do is alienate what viewers they have left.

  1. Cheers for the late change Ten. Any chance of a replay of the NCIS LA that I’ve missed the last 15 minutes on despite having a 30 min hangover on your stuff? Oh, I dislike your Tenplay bit too, Friday night 9.30 will do.
