TV is a tough game.
Last night new sitcom Part Time Private Eyes enjoyed a big lead-in from Australian Survivor of 809,000 but while it drew strong feedback on social media there was a big chunk of the audience that wasn’t even going to stick around to sample it.
The comedy drew 344,000 viewers -much better than Sydney’s Crazy Rich Asians– landing third in its slot. Will I Am Roxy fare any better tonight?
