A casual Saturday night leads to casual ratings. Seven News (1st – 1,094,000) leads the pack and not too much interest anywhere else, though MOVIE: Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (5th – 746,000) did pretty good early in the night. Not good news for Ch10’s Saturday night trilogy of Undercover Boss USA (15th – 357,000), The Graham Norton Show (9th – 473,000) and An Idiot Abroad – The Bucket List (14th – 377,000). Not great news for Ch9’s special Jamie Durie Presents G’day Cirque du Soleil (13th – 381,000) either. But then again, it is Saturday night.
