TV docs dominate in penultimate ratings week
Ratings: It's a 1 - 2 - 3 victory for TV's doctors in the house.
With just one more week to go in the 2017 ratings year, Seven has claimed another win.
The Good Doctor managed #1 & #2 across the week, with ABC’s Doc Martin at #3.
In contrast the next best scripted title was Home & Away at #22. In between was a lot of news, current affairs & sport.
