Another non-ratings ‘meh’ of a Tuesday, with the only real battle happening with the 6pm News services: Seven News (1st – 1,249,000) beat Nine News (2nd – 1,209,000) nationally, but Ch9 (1,018,000) beat Ch7 (923,000) on the East Coast. It’s an interesting battle as this result is reflected in the breaktfast TV battle between the two networks. Excellent to see Country Town Rescue (17th – 686,000) start to get more eyes for what is a great documentary series. On Showtime, Game Of Thrones launched the second season with 108,000 viewers and easily took the number one spot.
