Double dose of local drama on Tuesday
Ratings: Like a round of Thunderdome, 2 Aussie dramas went head to head last night, but alas only 1 came out alive.
Two Aussie dramas went head to head last night, at least for some of the evening, with Halifax: Retribution on Nine and Hungry Ghosts on SBS -sadly, the latter failed to fire in its second outing. It’s unfortunate given viewers wait so long for Aussie drama.
Earlier The Block led at 7:30 with 762,000 viewers.
But The Masked Singer was very close behind at 717,000 and topped the demos, rising to 810,000 for the moment Isaiah Firebrace was revealed as the Wizard -correctly guessed by Jackie O. Anh’s Brush with Fame (613,0000), 7:30 (573,000) and Inside the Crown: Secrets of the Royals (425,000) followed. Great Asian Railway Journeys was 296,000.
Later Halifax: Retribution drew 544,000 / 469,000 then Fight for Planet A (469,000), The Salisbury Poisonings (257,000) and movie: Miss Congeniality (223,000).
