The Home and Away triple play did 510,000 after two nights close to 640,000 and another on 570,000. The soap was part of Seven’s winning Thursday combo. It has won every night after The Block powered Nine to a Sunday win.
Episode two of The Good Doctor this week did 408,000 after 462,000 on Wednesday.
A special episode of A Current Affair started with Tracy Grimshaw welcoming viewers to Quebec where she devoted the whole program to an interview with Celine Dion on the eve of the release of her new album Courage. The episode did 572,000 after two nights under 700,000 and a week high of 746,000 on Tuesday.
The second episode of David Attenborough’s Seven Worlds, One Planet and again featured some stunning photography and sobering sights about what is happening to wildlife on the planet. Favourite animal last night – snow monkeys. The episode was on 564,000.
Nine then sandwiched in an episode of RBT with no number for it in the OzTAM rankings this morning.
Then it was time for the final episode of Love Island. The winning couple getting the $50,000 to start a new life together were Josh and Anna. The final episode did around 300,000 on the preliminary numbers released.
Maude Garrett was talking to the cast of the new Charlie’s Angels on The Project. The show also interviewed Ryan who made the final three on The Bachelorette. The episode did 426,000 after 7pm.
Angie Kent just couldn’t get used to the idea she would be getting a boyfriend. “I don’t need a man, I want one,” she told herself. During the final episode of The Bachelorette it seemed Angie would end up with Carlin. In the end Timm took his rejection well, exiting the Byron Bay love stage for Angie to break the good news to Carlin. The first part of the final did 849,000, up 11% year-on-year. The Final Decision climbed to 1.006m, up 9% on last year. The numbers were again good enough to secure 10 and Network 10 as #1 under 50.
Trial by Kyle followed with the first case featuring a husband taking action against his 25-year-old wife who took $1,000 of their home cash stash to pay for Botox. The show did 320,000 after 253,000 last week.
Grand Designs Australia featured a folly in Mount Eliza that started as a quick rebuild after knocking down what looked like a perfectly good house. The project ended up mired with objections from neighbours and costs that ballooned out of control. Host Peter Maddison was patient on the sidlelines over the three years it took to complete the property. As it always does, the finished property ended up looking pretty good. The second episode since its returned was on 351,000.
A repeat episode of Shetland followed with 187,000.
Ainlsey’s Australian Market Menu was in Adelaide stopping by the Fringe Festival before landing at the Central Market. Surprisingly it was the #2 show on the channel last night with 123,000.
You can never underestimate the appeal of a British institution for SBS viewers and Inside Marks and Spencers followed at 8.30pm with 153,000.
