Seven News gave the channel a good kick start and was key to helping Seven win the night.

Home And Away delivered three episodes with Alf looking like he was out on a date with only his second love interest on the show after 20 years – played by Belinda Giblin. The average across the three eps was 532,000.

The third of the four episodes of Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries then did 304,000, the smallest overnight audience so far after the series launched with 463,000. Last week’s episode added over 100,000 in the consolidated 7 ratings though – growth of 35%.


The channel delivered a strong showing at 7pm too in an episode of A Current Affair hosted by Leila McKinnon. The episode started with an item about people being sold “fake” coffins. Simon Bouda then reported on a brave former policewoman before Reid Butler spoke with MAFS bad wife Jessika. The episode was down 100,000 on Wednesday to 706,000.

Two episodes of Young Sheldon delivered 512,000 and then 427,000.

Australian Crime Stories then covered the fascinating story of John Friedrich with 279,000. The consolidated numbers showed 10% audience growth for last week’s Packer Gold Robbery episode, but if you haven’t seen that go to 9Now for what is a great episode.


The channel enjoyed its best night this survey year and the best night overall since Thursday in week six.

The Project was full of goodness, especially after 7pm. We missed the Sports Illustrated cover model, but did manage to see Maude Garrett’s great interviews for the new Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson. Then Waleed Aly had a moving report from Vietnam on the impact Agent Orange is having over 40 years since the Vietnam war. The episode deserved a bigger audience than 357,000.

Show Me The Movie was on 340,000 for a second consecutive week with the guests last night including the wife of host RoveTasma Walton. “A personal favourite of mine” said Rove during the introductions!

Gogglebox then nearly doubled the 10 audience with 646,000 after 647,000 a week ago. The consolidated 7 ratings were up 25% week-on-week.


Escape From The City was in the NSW Southern Highlands. But there was no sale as the audience of 432,000 saw the couple actually decide on a property, but a postscript noted they missed out on the house.

No more Grand Designs Australia, but the premiere of crime series Informer with 202,000 watching. 


The first of the three-part repeat of Secrets Of The Tudors did 202,000.

The audience climbed to 231,000 after 8.30pm for Rolls Royce: Dream Machines.

The channel’s best show of the night was the second episode of the miniseries Trust Me with Jodie Whittaker. It did 92,000 after 9.30
