For a Wednesday night with not a lot on, a surprising number of people sat down to watch repeats. Seven News (1st – 1,220,000) won the night as the only show above one million, and managed to take out every other primetime timeslot for the evening, speed bumped only by The Big Bang Theory (5th – 815,000) at 7pm & RBT (7th – 794,000). We are a masochistic bunch. The first of the repeated Underbelly Files – Tell Them Lucifer Was Here (19th – 526,000) – did pretty good in the timeslot though most programming is finding it hard against repeats of Criminal Minds (Ep1 9th – 701,000; Ep2 13th – 633,000) on Wednesday nights.
Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: Big Bang Theory – Ch9
7:30pm: RBT – Ch9
