For the third successive night this week Home and Away was again hovering well above 600,000 with 655,000 last night.
Celebrity Chaser featured a mixed bunch including Merrick Watts and Cal Wilson with 499,000 after 511,000 a week ago.
A Britain’s Got Talent special then did 334,000, which wasn’t bad for over two hours.
A Current Affair dropped under 800,000 for the first time this week with 711,000 watching.
The Block’s master ensuite week reveals are just one episode away with 833,000 watching the work continue. That comes after 750,000 last week when that episode was up against the cricket.
Many viewers have checked out of Grand Hotel with two episodes last night on 298,000 and then 196,000.
The Project dipped again down to 449,000.
The Bachelor was on 701,000 after 674,000 a week ago.
That wasn’t a bad lead-in for the Pilot Week episode of I Am Roxy. The audience of 399,000 was the best so far from the three programs screened. Co-executive producer Wippa was right when he told us Debbie Byrne did a great job on the series. Roxy is a perfect subject for reality exploitation and there was plenty of content last night. One piece they might have explored more was why one punter at a Roxy speaking gig wanted his money back before it had even started. The audience of 399,000 means 10 will seriously consider asking Two Basic Scoops Media and Matchbox Pictures for more.
But giving I Am Roxy an 8.40pm slot came at a cost. The penultimate episode of My Life Is Murder was pushed back a little to 9.10pm and suffered accordingly. The audience was 242,000 after 343,000 a week ago.
• Mad As Hell performed best of the midweek comedies with 636,000.
• Hard Quiz was on 605,000 and Utopia did 595,000.
• Diary Of An Uber Driver was on 217,000.
A special night of programming to note the 9/11 anniversary saw 9/11: Escape From The Towers on 260,000 followed by the launch of The Looming Tower drama on 149,000.
