Good Doctor helps Seven to another Tuesday win
Ratings: A recent Freddie Highmore visit sees US drama lift. Bondi Rescue is no match for reality juggernauts. Duh.
Aside from two noisy reality shows Tuesday’s bright spot was left to The Good Doctor with a standout 869,000 viewers in a 9pm timeslot.
That was up on last week’s 838,000, no doubt aided by a recent Freddie Highmore visit.
The US drama beat an improved Date Night on Nine at 500,000, ABC’s The Human Body and Hughesy We Have a Problem, which lifted above it’s TEN lead-in.
Married at First Sight at 1.23m and MKR at 1.03m were both well in front of a returned Bondi Rescue (380,000 / 343,000), which trailed 7:30 and another CJZ production The Checkout. Worth noting TEN’s second episode fared better than the first half hour.
Seven News and The Chase won their slots. ACA was high at 908,000.
