Home & Away wraps season, Wednesday a dud for 10.

Wednesday was quiet across the board, but 10 was unable to improve on The Project all night.

Wednesday was a stinker of a night for 10, falling behind SBS at 7:30pm and never raising above its Project audience.

With just days of survey remaining, it was also a quiet one across the board.

The Chase led entertainment at 500,000 / 326,000 metro viewers.

Home and Away wrapped for 2023, but Seven only coded its triple episode at one figure resulting in an average of 395,000.

7:30 won its slot at 448,000 then Hard Quiz (423,000) and Taronga: Who’s Who in the Zoo (388,000), IKEA: How Do They Really Do It? is likely to top the week for SBS at 182,000. But Adam Hills: Grown Another Foot faltered at just 148,000 for 10.

Later Question Everything was 328,000 then Clarkson’s Farm (285,000) and Australian Epic (220,000).

Nine led in primary share but Seven network won Wednesday with 29.1% then Nine 28.5%, ABC 19.7%, 10 13.8% and SBS 8.9%.

Seven News was #1 at 849,000 / 786,000. Big Brother managed just 138,000 / 97,000.

Nine News (744,000 / 705,000) was best for Nine. A Current Affair won at 561,000 then Hot Seat (365,000 / 242,000). Luxe Listings Sydney was 117,000.

ABC News drew 569,000.  Planet America (191,000), QI (131,000) and The Drum (122,000) followed.

10 never rose about The Project‘s 228,000 / 148,000 all night. 10 News First was 192,000 / 130,000. Law and Order: SVU was 118,000 while My Life is Murder was only 88,000.

  1. Some nights it is hardly worth Ten turning on their transmitter. I always wish them well but their programming is so anemic at times that they really only have themselves to blame.
    Despite being their highest rating show The Project just sucks the life out of everything and really should go.

    1. I am like you in that l feel programming is a big issue. The Graham Norton for example is showing across 3 channels at various times. 1stly l dont feel it suits 10s audience but 2ndly is there nothing else that can aired?? Over runs on prime time shows is another big problem. The Project always runs late. 10 is not the only one but it’s does get annoying and you loose interest.

  2. The Home and Away season finale over the last few years has been an extended version and appears in all key audience demographics, however didn’t last night. I’m a massive fan of the show but last nights finale was incredibly underwhelming. The good news is that it returns on Monday January 8, 2024.

  3. I watched Adam Hills: Grown Another Foot this morning & it was OK.

    I suspect it may have done better on the ABC where Adam is more known to audiences via shows such as, The Last Leg, etc.
