The Good Doctor takes top spot again
Ratings: US drama is the surprise package of the week. TEN shows strong in the demos.
The Good Doctor has proven to be the surprise package of the week, scoring a second night at #1 for Seven.
It drew 950,000 viewers well ahead of the timeslot champ Gogglebox on 618,000 and The Ex-PM on 365,000. But Gogglebox held onto top spot in the 3 demos.
An extended Home and Away (from 7pm) averaged 618,000 ranking higher than 7:30 shows RBT and Cram, but TEN’s new game show beat both in the demos, if divisive in social media feedback.
Nine offered little in the way of competitive content last night, with the Free to Air premiere of Wolf Creek following a repeat of Piers Morgan, both beaten on several fronts.
Seven News, ACA and The Chase won their slots again.
