While it’s on, Wednesday night is Gruen Planet (3rd – 988,000) night – it smashed all other non-News programs with the nearest program nearly 200,000 viewers behind. The premiere of Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery (14th – 699,000) could have gone better certainly but with it only running for 5 eps it’s pretty much just a toe in the water. Ten’s “all new” Wednesday night line up of The Bachelor Australia (15th – 656,000) and Wonderland (17th – 637,000) really struggling to capture viewers though mostly fall into the key demo Top 5. Nine have certainly done their dash with Arrow (18th – 618,000).
As for the recently reheated 5:30pm battle… Hot Seat (19th – 599,000) took only two eps to triumph over Million Dollar Minute (???).
