Australian Story, Four Corners, 7:30 beat commercial networks.

Ratings: ABC finishes second for the night, pushing Nine into third. HYBPA? tops the demos.

Should we attribute this to Cup Eve celebrations in Melbourne last night?

ABC shows have again beaten those offered by Seven, Nine & TEN with 7:30, Australian Story & Four Corners all winning their slots. ABC beat Nine into second place across the network, after pipping them in primary share on Sunday too.

In all likelihood it is being driven by viewer dissatisfaction with commercial offerings, with a Cup Eve factor to boot.

Australian Story and 7:30 both pipped The Wall, Family Food Fight and All Star Family Feud. Nine’s reality show has slipped under 500,000 whilst TEN was under 400,000.

Four Corners also won at 8:30, although Have You Been Paying Attention still topped the demos. Liar and Menendez Murders followed.

Seven News, ACA and The Chase held their slots.

  1. I am thinking …random start times…reality shows dragged out past finish time….and shows pulled and constantly moved around….do not help commercial channels….They really need to sit down and get their act together…I am sure advertisers are also not impressed….would not be doing much for their products.

      1. I’ve got into The Wall, mainly because I like seeing where the balls land and if they’re green or red. Ending is always tense. But I can see why ratings dropped and poor critical response, too long and it’s the same the entire program. A better host and contestants that don’t look like they’re on a sugar high would also help.

        1. I agree with your comments about contestants that seem like they’re on a sugar high. If they calmed down and stopped screaming and jumping around I would probably have enjoyed the show a lot more. I like The Chase and never get bored of that show
