  1. Commonwealth Games also winning the 16-39 demographics at Number 1 and 3, with Beauty & the Geek at number 4, though guessing Beauty & the Geek would have a good 9Now viewership and total audience (as it rose 338,000 on last weeks).

    1. It’s the type of show that commercial networks were forced to play at 4pm during the do-gooder “C classification” debacle of the 1980s and 1990s.

      Many of that generation responded with the off switch.
