A Four Corners’ exposé into the damage done to a family after one of the children was allegedly abused by George Pell has delivered for the ABC in last night’s viewer numbers.
The episode pulled an impressive 794,000 according to overnight OzTAM metro numbers and was the seventh most-watched show of the night. It even beat Seven’s MKR, that could only muster 708,000.
Four Corner’s success also had a halo affect for Media Watch (749,000) and Q&A (548,000), both posting their best numbers for 2019.
Once again MAFS did the business for Nine, pulling 1.293 million and handing the network a convincing 31 per cent of the audience share.
Seven had to settle for 26.8 per cent, while on the back of Four Corners, the ABC pulled an impressive 20.9 per cent.
Over at 10, its Monday night go-to – Dancing With The Stars – peaked at 496,000 for Denise Scott’s elimination. That handed 10 15.5 per cent audience share, with SBS taking home 5.8 per cent.
Other standouts for Nine were its 6pm news (945,000), ACA (847,000), Bad Mothers (548,000) and Hot Seat (463,000).
