Not surprisingly, ABC1 made a great showing again on Saturday night with Doc Martin the highest rating program for the night by a long shot. Four of the Top5 were ABC1 programs! The highest Channel 10 could offer was their 5pm News service at 14th (357,000 viewers). Heartbeat also featured strongly on 7Two (aka ABC5) with its two episodes taking the top two digital multi-channel positions. All sessions of the Cricket: SA vs AUS featured strongly for subscription TV.
