• ABC’s Gruen and Hard Quiz shine amongst mid-week programs
• Bad dogs, good Paramedics and royal weddings not so popular
The ABC’s primary channel had a rare win last night in what should be the first of two victories this month with ABC’s New Year’s Eve coverage now just three weeks away.
Most-watched for the ABC was the penultimate episode of Gruen with 640,000 making it the third-most-watched Wednesday program after the Seven and Nine 6pm news.
Tom Gleeson was well ahead of his competition last night at 8pm on Hard Quiz. An evening where viewers had the choice of a Paramedics repeat, misbehaving British dogs or a clip show about Royal Weddings which included the usual suspects (Dickie Arbiter etc). All three programs had audiences just over 300,000.
Also performing relatively well for the ABC was Reputation Rehab and an episode of Adam Hills: The Last Leg which only just missed the top 20 with 241,000. The episode first screened on Tuesday night on ABC Comedy.
10 Bold and 7TWO both had shares of 5% or more with their programs NCIS and Lewis the most-watched.
