The launch episode saw a papier-mache model of Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli’s body get auctioned for $55,000 raising money for charity, so some really top-notch Sunday night viewing there.
It was a good night for Nine, who also came out on top overall with Nine News Sunday. It scored 1,009,000 viewers, while Seven News had 991,000.
Coming in after Celebrity Apprentice – Boardroom was 7News Spotlight: Martin Bryant’s Dark Secrets.
