A mixed bag considering the effect of the Seven Special Report (17th – 681,000) staggered for different markets – it was number 3 in Melbourne but barely rated a blip in Sydney and Brisbane. The X Factor (1st – 1,490,000) again delivered for Seven and Big Brother (6th – 1,030,000) manages to creep above the magic million. The final Adam Hills Tonight (18th – 671,000) performed consistent with the rest of the season and Offspring (9th – 874,000) was Ten’s best performer by far, even winning the 8:30pm timeslot nationally. Again not great news for This Week Live (TBC) not making the Top 20 again – guilty by association.
Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
6:30pm: A Current Affair – Ch9
7:00pm: Big Brother – Ch9
7:30pm: The X Factor – Ch7
8:30pm: Offspring – Ch10
9:30pm: Seven Special Report – Panel – Ch7
Channel 7 won the night (25%), followed by Channel 9 (19.1%), Channel 10 (13.6%) & ABC1 (12.8%).
