A sad day marking the passing of Peter Harvey. The tribute by Nine News (1st – 1,103,000) certainly fitting, as was the program that played out after the news in place of Australia’s Funniest Home Videos (7th – 717,000). ABC1’s lineup again pushed it’s nose in with The Paradise (4th – 741,000) but as is becoming the norm it’s all movies on Saturday night.
Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
6:30pm: MOVIE: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1st hour) – Ch7
7:30pm: The Paradise – ABC1
8:30pm: Grand Designs – ABC1
9:30pm: MOVIE: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2nd hour) – Ch7
