Seven News, The Chase, AFL drive Seven to easy Thursday win.

Seven's game show continues to be a quiet achiever for the network, pushing viewers into 6pm bulletin and topping entertainment.

The Chase is fast becoming the highest rating entertainment show when reality TV shows are not in play.

Last night it drew 443,000 / 280,000 metro viewers which really shouldn’t be the highest entertainment can offer, but Thursdays are dominated by sport.

  1. If they renew it they need to put it in a new timeslot where it has more lead in support. The current numbers are not good enough IMO. Why Ten won’t move Gogglebox to 730 is beyond me

  2. Taskmaster Australia is such an underrated show. It’ a pity that it doesn’t rate well. I have just returned from overseas and watched back-to-back episodes (last week and this week). They were the funniest so far. Great entertainment in the living room on a Thursday night.

    Hope this show gets renewed.

  3. Where Air Crash Investigations aired in some places (NSW & Qld) around 9:45 Seven again ran the same misleading, defamatory promo that they’ve been running for a month, featuring Qantas planes and a small metal part. Again, it wasn’t Qantas but a small American airline crashing, again, due to pilot error.
