If it’s Thursday it must be Sport staggered across various channels and cities. Last night there was AFL, NRL and Cricket which ultimately landed in Nine’s favour but which makes analysis somewhat complicated.
10’s The Bachelor (633,000) and Gogglebox (607,000) led in the entertainment stakes, winning their slots and topping the demos.
Nine continues to code its primary and multichannel shows separately resulting in Ashes Series drawing up to 396,000 on Nine, but another 282,000 on 9GEM. It would look much rosier on OzTAM results if Nine bothered to allow a combined number, as Seven does for AFL.
Elsewhere last night SBS had a poor night with one drama so low it was embarrassing.
Seven is yet to claim a night this week, but AFL finals should do the trick.
Nine network won with 33.3% then Seven 31.7%, 10 18.1%, ABC 12.7% and SBS 4.2%.
Seven News was #1 for Seven with 837,000 / 779,000 then Thursday Night AFL (633,000), The Chase (472,000 / 324,000), Home and Away (442,000 in 4 cities). Movie: The Mountain Between Us was 135,000 in 3 cities.
Nine News (790,000 / 781,000) led for Nine then A Current Affair (711,000), Hot Seat (446,000 / 272,000), Thursday Night NRL (341,000 in 2 cities).
The Project drew 428,000 /265,000 for 10 then 10 News First (329,000), Celebrity Name Game (217,000) and Law & Order: SVU (189,000).
ABC News (567,000), 7:30 (461,000), Escape from the City (342,000), Sammy J, (259,000), Vera (252,000) and The Drum (145,000) comprised ABC’s night.
On SBS it was SBS World News (131,000), Going Places with Ernie Dingo (129,000), Gourmet Farmer (106,000) and Mastermind (62,000). Riviera was a measly 38,000 -expect a change to the schedule, pronto.
The Morning Show: 138,000 / 81,000
