Gruen, Bachelor score, Nine wins Wednesday
Ratings: It's a strong start for Anh's Brush with Fame. Bachelor takes all three Demos.
With Olympic competition over, ABC’s Gruen was the top entertainment show last night pulling 927,000 viewers, while Anh’s Brush with Fame debuted well with 806,000 viewers as warm-up act.
TEN’s Bachelor also won its slot with 853,000 viewers and topped the Demos. RBT followed for Nine with Zumbo’s Just Desserts shedding a further 96,000 viewers for Seven.
Seven News was again the night’s biggest audience but the network had to settle for second, largely due to a dip for Zumbo and disinterest in its 10pm movie.

Nine News (1.00m / 914,000) was best for Nine then RBT and A Current Affair (both 825,000), Hot Seat (598,000) and Movie: Skyfall (550,000).
