While it didn’t run into primetime, the Bathurst Top 10 Shootout (3rd – 935,000) still runs strong and shows the hand of the Australian public as to their connection with the Great Race. Movies rule the roost for a Saturday night (understandably), leaving the likes of Doctor Who (10th – 552,000) and Steve Irwin’s Wildlife Warriors (14th – 479,000) to languish down the order.
