The Second Test – Australia v India still a massive ratings drawcard for Ch9… so much so I bet they wish the ratings actually counted at this time of year. Alwasy boosts their nightly news too, with their 6pm News (1st – 1,464,000) bulletin coming out on top. It’s also one of the few times in the year when A Current Affair (4th – 1,082,000) beats Today Tonight (5th – 963,000). Beyond that, there’s not special to talk about, living in a land of repeats that rate. Brisbane International Tennis 2012 (Night Session 1st – 258,000) rating well for 7Two, proving it’s a smart move by Ch7 to show all sessions on the digital multi-channel. Even though only 14,000-odd went to the Cricket: Big Bash League game at the Gabba, 259,000 still tuned in to watch it on Fox Sports.
