Another interesting Thursday night, where the timeslot wins are shared around somewhat. Celebrity Apprentice Australia took out the 7pm slot for a boardroom episode on Ch9 (first time since it started); Beauty and the Geek was the highest rating show for the night and owned 7:30pm for Ch7. A big win for ABC1 with The Slap winning at 8:30pm, with Ch9′s Unforgettable closest and Ch7′s The Amazing Race languishing in a distant third trailed by Ch10′s Rush. ABC also scored the 9:30pm win with the much maligned Crownies, helping it’s nightly share significantly. Unfortunately for Ch10 only three programs made it into the Top 20 – Rush (17th) & their 7:30 double of Recruits: Paramedics (14th) and Keeping Up With The Joneses (19th). Things certainly need to get better for the Ten Network, and fast.
Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: Celebrity Apprentice – Ch9
7:30pm: Beauty And The Geek – Ch7
