Nine News (1st – 1,017,000) takes Saturday night and wraps up the week – the first time they’ve won 6pm nationally since 2007. Is the tide turning? David Attenborough’s Africa (5th – 742,000) premieres to a timeslot win and a great result for a stunning documentary series – Ch7’s cynical grab against it in MOVIE: The Lion King (6th – 695,000) does pretty well too.
Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
6:30pm: David Attenborough’s Africa – Ch10
7:30pm: The Paradise – ABC1
8:30pm: MOVIE: Shrek Forever After (2nd hour) – Ch9
9:30pm: MOVIE: How To Train Your Dragon (2nd hour) – Ch7
