Home And Away had a second night just over 650,000.
The Super Switch returned for a second week with Seven able to claim it was the #1 social experiment on TV last night. There’s probably not much else it won though with an audience of 335,000 after its first two nights were also under 400,000.
Things got much better in some markets though with The Front Bar on 405,000 with 252,000 in Melbourne – exactly three times the size of The Super Switch audience in that market! The Front Bar had an earlier timeslot in Sydney this week. But with 14,000 viewers, many are still resisting the charms of Mick, Sam and Andy.
Although Seven won the night nationally, it was in third place in Sydney.
A squatter and an impressive police tackle were features on A Current Affair with 763,000 watching after two nights over 800,000.
Justine Clarke and Luke McGregor were among the contestants on Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation with 485,000 after 477,000 a week ago. Later in the night host Shaun Micallef turned up on the set of The Weekly to start work on building his set for the return of Mad As Hell next week.
20 To One then did 317,000.
The Project guests included Em Rusciano interviewed by Sam Taunton. He pitched the “questions nobody wanted to ask”. The episode did 487,000 after a couple of nights over 500,000.
MasterChef featured a twins team challenge last night with 713,000 watching after 731,000 on Wednesday last week. Winners were able to secure a spot in the MasterChef top 10.
Five Bedrooms then did 437,000 after 498,000 last week.
Share jumped from 8.2% Tuesday to 13.5% Wednesday thanks to Anh’s Brush With Fame on 681,000 and then the season final of The Weekly With Charlie Pickering on 583,000. Network 10 again supplied most of the talent for Pickering’s show with Carrie Bickmore visiting and Grant Denyer interview Tom Gleeson in a retitled segment calls Small Talk.
The final of QI for now did 244,000 followed by Adam Hills: The Last Leg on 183,000. These recent episodes are actually screened first on ABC Comedy at 8pm Tuesdays. Maybe they should be on the primary channel at that time?
Going Places With Ernie Dingo was at Horizontal Falls with 205,000.
The launch of Where Are You Really From? then did 192,000.
24 Hours In Emergency had 194,000 watching after 8.30pm.
