Stargazing Live beats TEN, Nine. MKR tops Tuesday.
Ratings: Brian Cox & Julia Zemiro do the heavy lifting after Todd Sampson. Sunrise has a victory from the USA.
ABC’s first of three Stargazing Live events drew an audience of 585,000 last night, enough to land in front of TEN & Nine offerings, so a fairly good result.
The windswept show had to do some heavy lifting after the low lead-in from Todd Sampson’s Life on the Line. At 328,000 it had improved on last week, but is still under-performing in its timeslot.
MKR was untouched, at 1.3m viewers it was up on last Tuesday’s 1.24m. The Big Bang Theory pulled 755,000 for its second episode but Jamie’s Super Food Family Classics could not move TEN out of 5th, still trailing Great Continental Railway Journeys.
Travel Guides UK edition was well down on the Australian adaptation, behind NCIS.
There was good news for Sunrise with a San Fransisco edition outranking Today at Burleigh Heads.
