The midweek episode of Home and Away featured action in the Yabbie Creek police station and the Summer Bay diner with an audience of 663,000 after two nights just under 700,000.

The series final of Instant Hotel managed 611,000, which is not far above what most episodes attracted through its short season.

Another season final was The Secret Daughter, which ended with a double episode. The audience for the penultimate episode – 497,000 – was smaller than the final, which did 433,000.


A Current Affair featured a report on the murder of Clare Morrison – the “murder Australia forgot”, said the program. Ben Fordham later turned up commenting on a pokie thief during a report from a very persistent Taylor Auerbach, who did his best to secure an interview with the thief. The midweek episode did 788,000.

Nine then screened the first episode of the UK version of The Voice Kids with 454,000 watching.

It was then time for something a little more adult with the Victoria’s Secret 2017 fashion show on 283,000.


Culture Club appeared briefly at the end of The Project with 448,000 watching after 7pm. Tracey Spicer appeared earlier in the program to talk about ongoing investigations into media people accused of bad behaviour.

The first of two episodes of Cram! this week did 290,000.

Law & Order: SVU was then on 207,000 followed by Sisters on 170,000.


The season final of Hard Quiz found experts on Phil Spector and the Oscars. After a long and successful 18-episode season, the Tom Gleeson-hosted program did 639,000. It was again #1 show after 7.30pm and outrated the final Instant Hotel among others.

An episode of Rosehaven then did 553,000 followed by The Letdown on 380,000 and then Adam Hills: The Last Leg on 222,000.


The second episode of Struggle Street featured what looked to be an over-zealous home eviction. It was the channel’s most-watched program on 285,000.

Earlier in the night Europe’s Last Warrior Kings did 207,000.

Riviera then wrapped with a double episode, which had an average audience of 87,000.
