Utopia is now the biggest scripted title on the air, last week averaging 683,000 viewers.

The Working Dog comedy is also massive in Timeshifted audiences, recently pulling another 277,000 viewers in the 7 days after broadcast.

Nine had another winning week, but was down on the preceding week, as was Seven. 10 lifted thanks to season highs for Gogglebox, Have You Been Paying Attention? and Australian Survivor -its biggest episode ever. But Saturday Night Rove tanked at just 138,000 viewers, way down on its debut of 244,000.

  1. I’m not surprised that the ABC does so well in timeshifting .. along with SBS, iView is the easiest to navigate, and they load their programs a lot earlier. Try and find something on 7, you have to wade through all the ancient repeats of ancient shows first. I always know if I miss something on the ABC or SBS, it’s so quick and easy to find and watch.
