MKR, Home & Away, Gogglebox lead Thursday entertainment
Ratings: NRL Footy Show takes a dip in its second outing. Seven wins Thursday.
MKR, Home & Away and Gogglebox were Thursday’s top entertainment shows in a night that belonged to Seven.
My Kitchen Rules topped the night at 945,000 down slightly on last week’s 954,000, but with a win in the demos. It was well ahead of 7:30, Thursday Night NRL and Montreal Comedy Festival.
Gogglebox pulled 554,000, down on last week’s 602,000, although other timeslot comparisons are just too messy to attempt.
The AFL Footy Show was on par with its performance last week in Melbourne at 174,000 but the NRL edition dropped in Sydney from 110,000 to 82,000. In Brissy the dip was slighter, down by 8000.
ABC News enjoyed a timeslot win, thanks partly to no ACA in Brisbane because of NRL. It was a tough night for SBS with trains still the best performer.
