Gogglebox tops entertainment shows on Thursday

Ratings: TEN zaps from #5 in its slot to #1 in a matter of minutes. Seven wins the night.

TEN zapped from fifth place with Biggest Loser: Transformed to first, in a matter of minutes, thanks to Gogglebox.

Seven and Nine once again ran staggered schedules due to Live sporting commitments. Seven News won its slot in the 6pm news battle.

Elsewhere it was the season final for Newton’s Law, with 460,000 up from last week’s 412,000 -will it be enough to win a renewal? It will depend on catch-up and iview numbers.

    1. Yes the pitch sound thin, but the execution is enjoyed by many. As I have noted in the past it works as a snapshot of who we are, especially when the families show reactions to news footage about refugees, gay marriage, etc. It captures our opinions.

      1. You either get it or you don’t. My sister is in the latter camp and flat out refuses to watch it.

        And sometimes it’s a bit hit and miss, so if you catch a bit of the “miss” on your first viewing you’re less likely to keep watching (I think that’s what happened to my sister, actually).

        1. I was talking about it to my grandmother (in her 80s) and she said it was stupid and wouldn’t bother watching it, I forced her to watch it one night and now she doesn’t miss an episode. She is in love with Anastasia

  1. Why oh why do we have SVU repeats still airing on a Thursday and new eps have been shoved to a Saturday night slot. Haven’t been able to watch on a Saturday and Ten don’t offer a catch up service… so damn annoying

    1. And sandwiched between an umpteenth-rerun movie (Exotic Marigold Hotel) and a repeat, then another repeat, tomorrow night. At least on Saturday their SVU-repeat two hours could be eps in sequence, not haphazard eps as they play now on Thurs and Sat.

  2. Default easy win for Seven, of course due to the AFL.

    It was a topsy-turvey game, turned onto a thriller late in the match again!

    David, how did the movie “Godzilla” rate (Channel 7 in 3 markets & 7mate in 2 markets)?
