10 has made a change to the programming schedule of The Cube with the show now airing twice a week after adding a Tuesday night episode to its lineup. The show’s first crack at the Tuesday night audience brought in 272,000 viewers which is its lowest ratings to date. The episode featured best friends Will and Joan who met at a parenting group.

This was followed by a repeat of NCIS with 184,000.

The Project had 270,000 (6:30 pm) and 417,000 (7:00 pm) as the show covered the Kiwi travel bubble, legislation affecting after business hours emails, and the man who saved a bunch of retirees during the floods.


ABC rolled out its new Tuesday night lineup following the conclusion of Exposed: The Ghost Train Fire last week.

Anh’s Brush with Fame aired at 7:30 and featured Kate Ritchie. The episode had 556,000 which was an increase on the season’s premiere last week with Jamie Durie which had 509,000.

This was followed by the season premiere of Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds with 593,000. After the success of season one, the new season once again sees a group of older adults living alone, join a group of lively 4-year-olds in an intergenerational play school for learning, connection and friendship.

Unlike last season, the new group of seniors all live in their own homes and will have more opportunities for home visits, excursions and community building.


The top rating show on SBS last night was a repeat of Who Do You Think You Are? with 213,000.
