Primary Channels

As the weather heats up, Friday night cools down from a ratings perspective. Only the top show for the night, Better Homes and Gardens, managed to crack 1 million viewers. Only two Channel 10 shows managed to crack the Top 20 (The Project 16th & Ten News At Five 18th). Channel 9 struggles with the Friday night Celebrity Apprentice Australia – in fact with it’s entire Friday night schedule. If only they could make the NRL run the entire ratings season. The digital multi-channels suffer the same fate as the primary networks (nobody watching) – not one show made it above 300K.
