On a day that the government overhauls the Drama quotas, Halifax: Retribution again draws another crowd of around half a million in an 8:40 slot. It was only pipped by ABC’s Back in Time for Dinner.
In contrast to the recent struggle for Between Two Worlds, Halifax has enjoyed a stable audience across its run (although Home & Away was still the top rating drama for the night).
Reality TV still tops entertainment, if favoured by an earlier and consistent slot. The Block led on that front at 809,000, ahead of Anh’s Brush with Fame (716,000), 7:30 (615,000), Ambulance Australia (287,000), Every Family Has a Secret (287,000) and America’s Got Talent (232,000 / 186,000) last for Seven.
Back in Time for Dinner led its slot at 591,000 then Halifax: Retribution (496,000), Body Hack (255,000) and Insight (166,000).
Nine network won Tuesday with 31.8% then Seven 24.0%, ABC 19.7%, 10 15.3% and SBS 9.2%.
Nine News was best for Nine at 923,000 / 910,000. A Current Affair (678,000) and Hot Seat (494,000 / 299,000) followed. Bluff City Law drew 174,000.
Seven News was #1 at 1.07m / 1.02m for Seven. The Chase drew 602,000 / 366,000 and Home & Away was 589,000.
ABC News won its slot at 784,000. Lockdown Stories (238,000) and The Drum (215,000) followed.
The Project drew 462,000 / 282,000. 10 News First was 318,000 / 206,000 and NCIS (114,000).
On SBS it was SBS World News (174,000), Dateline (132,000), The Feed (74,000) and Mastermind (67,000).
