A Current Affair only screened in four markets with 611,000. There was no Brisbane screening because of the NRL coverage.

The NRL returned for 2019 and was a winner for Nine and the Melbourne Storm. The match did 524,000 with 246,000 in Sydney and 212,000 in Brisbane. There was 48,000 watching in Melbourne as the Melbourne team won.

No Footy Show any more after the game, but instead Nine’s new Thursday Night Golden Point with James Bracey hosting. The first episode did 337,000.


Gogglebox was again the champion performer for the channel with 645,000 making it the most-watched program after the three main early evening news bulletins. It also did 645,000 a week ago.

Earlier in the night The Project was on 394,000 at 7pm and then Show Me The Movie! did 326,000 after 343,000 last week.

The brilliant and penultimate episode of the four-part Trust Me with Jodie Whittaker didn’t make the top 100 with around 70,000, but it is well worth tracking down on SBS On Demand before it disappears.
