Footy Show dips, Gogglebox tops demos.
Ratings: The Checkout and Janet King rise for ABC. Nine wins Thursday.
Last week’s debut by Rebecca Maddern on The Footy Show saw the curiosity drop last night, falling from 582,000 to 427,000 this week. That’s no surprise given the 6 year high it attracted last week.
Nine managed to stay in front on Thursday in a close tussle with Seven.
It was ABC shows that managed modest increases last night, while several commercial shows all took a dip.
The Checkout rose from 653,000 to 686,000 and Janet King lifted from 608,000 to 613,000. While those are hardly big increases, they both managed a rare placing above 7:30, down by 72,000.
Home and Away was up for Seven, but Gogglebox dropped 39,000 for TEN -it still topped all the demos.
