Another quiet Thursday night. It’s almost like everyone went on holiday early! What’s worse is the highest non-News program was a repeat episode of The Big Bang Theory (6th – 681,000). God help us all. The split viewing on AFL nights continues to do “interesting” things to the figures, with Home and Away (8th – 627,000 – SYD/MEL/BNE only) & Seven’s AFL: Thursday Night Football (12th – 519,000 – MEL/ADL/PER only) all down on what would normally be expected, and the 7mate figures for the AFL not very big. A gamble that will eventually pay off for Ch7 though as the market gets used to where the footy is.
