Saturday continues to be pretty lean, but then the networks aren’t exactly programming against that. Consequently, the older skewed programming of New Tricks (2nd – 1,206,000) and Whitechapel (6th – 732,000) took significant chunks of the night. Movies and football feature further down the list of free-to-air television, but then we aren’t at the height of winter yet. NRL and AFL rule the subscription TV charts.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Gardening Australia/ABC News – ABC1
7:30pm: New Tricks – ABC1
8:30pm: Whitechapel – ABC1
9:30pm: Seven’s AFL: Saturday Night Football (3rd hour) – Ch7

Channel 7 won the night (23.2%), followed by ABC1 (18.3%), Channel 9 & Channel 10 (12.7%).
