Audiences just aren’t watching TV on Saturday night – at least in the summer months. Look to a change in the coming weeks. Only 1 show above 1m (Ch7’s News), and then only 6 shows above 500K. Even the ever dependable movies didn’t help.
Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Gardening Australia (rpt)/ABC News – ABC1
7:30pm: Over The Hedge (rpt) – ABC1
8:30pm: Midsomer Murders (rpt) -ABC1
9:30pm: Midsomer Murders/Bed of Roses – ABC1
ABC1 wins the night(!!!) – definitively (see shares tab for full reveal).
Reflecting the love of all things English drama on the primary channels, Heartbeat takes out Saturday night for 7Two, with a re-run of Platoon on ABC2 a decent second.
The strong performance by 7Two helped the 7 Network salvage the win for the night, but by less than 1% on the ABC collective.
The 7 Network finish the week with a definitive win on all other networks (Ch7 – 23.7%; 7 Network 31.4%), and 8 of the Top10 most watched shows for the week.
