Bluey first ever animated cover for TV Week
TV Week breaks from tradition for a superstar Aussie.
It's a very happy Monday in the @TVWEEKmag office! We are on sale with our first ever animation cover in our 63 year history. @OfficialBlueyTV is a ratings success and we love celebrating Australian talent so it is pure joy to have the cheeky Blue Heeler on stands today. pic.twitter.com/OGfM6ft4q4

Another milestone for ABC KIDS hit Bluey -the first ever animated character given a TV Week cover.
And why not? The Ludo Studios series is pulling eye-watering figures for the channel, at up to 437,000 on Saturday -the biggest audience all day outside of evening news bulletins.
Yesterday another 424,000 in the morning, and 228,000 in an early evening replay.
New Timeshifted numbers will be available tomorrow for the first new episode, and the series was also just nominated for an AACTA Award.
