Thursday numbers are down, down, down…
Ratings: Is Daylight Saving kicking in? Some shows were really struggling last night.
Some exceptions notwithstanding, Thursday was a particularly low night of viewing, suggesting that Daylight Saving may be starting to kick in.
Nine News was barely over 800,000 viewers whilst A Current Affair‘s 689,000, Hot Seat‘s 420,000, Bachelorette‘s 613,000 and a Make You LOL special at 497,000 were also low. And let’s not even start on the William Shatner Roast -231,000 was lower than last week’s Survivor (260,000) it replaced.
So onto more positive news, The Big Bang Theory, Gogglebox, Seven News and ABC News were amongst those with reason to smile.
Seven network won Thursday with 27.9% then Nine 27.1%, TEN 21.5%, ABC 16.7% and SBS 6.8%.
Seven News was #1 with 936,000 / 822,000 then Home and Away (623,000), The Chase (584,000 / 409,000), Make you LOL (497,000) and Movie: Captain America: The First Avenger (344,000).
The Big Bang Theory (854,000 / 693,000) led for Nine then Nine News (804,000 / 803,000), ACA (689,000), Better Late Than Never (539,000) and Hot Seat (420,000). The William Shatner Roast drew just 231,000. In its new later slot Survivor sank to just 68,000 -so much for gaining traction from TEN’s season.
The season final of Gogglebox (714,000) again outranked The Bachelorette (613,000). The Project was 526,000 / 364,000, TEN Eyewitness News was 378,000 and a Wrong Girl repeat was 265,000.
ABC News (716,000), 7:30 (574,000), Silvia’s Italian Table (421,000), National Treasure (377,000) and The Tunnel (244,000) comprised ABC’s night.
On SBS Deep Water (231,000) was best in show. Favourite Foods: Are They Good For You? (187,000), SBS World News (138,000) and Death Row (81,000) followed.
7TWO’s Father Brown 233,000 topped multichannels.
