Gogglebox tops TEN, Newton’s Law down for ABC.
Ratings: With AFL on Seven and NRL on Nine, Thursday was a messy affair numbers-wise.
It was staggered schedules aplenty last night with AFL on Seven and NRL on Nine. A number of titles did not play in all 5 cities. The key to making sense of it all is looking to the overall shares for the night.
But individually, Gogglebox was again the top entertainment show for the night at 722,000 -increasing on last week’s 674,000 and topping the demos. It proved to be TEN’s best night of the week. A Family Feud special drew 457,000.
But Newton’s Law has slipped once more for ABC, now at 412,000 viewers, its lowest this season. Perhaps it was impacted by sport too? Even Great British Railway Journeys was down for SBS.
Seven News and ABC News both won their slots while The Chase continues to knock off Hot Seat.
Seven network won Thursday with 31.9%, then Nine 27.2%, TEN 19.8%, ABC 15.0% and SBS 6.2%.
