Wednesday night has become the night for anything BUT commercial television – and when ABC1 continue to offer Gruen Nation (3rd – 1,179,000) and The Hamster Decides (8th – 913,000) it’s not surprising. The first of two special Kitchen Cabinet (7th – 921,000) episodes does very well and with 7:30 (10th – 899,000) Aunty owns the first two hours of prime time. Wonderland (15th – 688,000) creeps lower for week three, signalling it’s maybe not “Australia’s favourite new drama” – though it does perform well in the key demos 16-39 and 18-49.

6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
