That was a very odd night of television.
With networks having to pull back on stripped reality shows due to the production shutdown it was a night of curious programming and audience choices. While Seven and 10 found first-run titles for early evening, Nine went with nostalgia, ABC & SBS stuck to tried and true.
Here’s how things stacked up….
Home and Away was the top-rating entertainment show of the night at 660,000.
7:30 led its all-important slot at 580,000 followed by America’s Got Talent (525,000), Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery (475,000), Bondi Rescue (486,000 / 433,000), Kath & Kim (333,000 / 307,000) and Tony Robinson’s World by Rail (325,000).
Later The Weekly with Charlie Pickering led with 517,000 then At Home Alone Together (356,000), The Front Bar (335,000) Tommy (274,000) and Movie: Crocodile Dundee (243,000).
