Tragically, tragically, the Olympics is beginning its wind-down.
As millions of people in lockdown across Australia look upon the coming Monday with dread, wondering what they’ll watch when they’re ‘working’ between the hours of 3pm to 5pm, or the unbeatable dopamine boost of watching someone mess up a move in a sport you’ve never heard of. And what about all those Aussie golds? Maybe they should extend it another week, just for us.
Fear not, there are still three full days of the Olympics left, and Thursday night’s coverge showed little signs of a slow. The night coverage peaked at 1,424,000 according to OzTAM’s metro data.
That being said, the rest of the top three was rounded out by news: Seven News had 1,326,000 viewers while Nine News had 1,096,000.

Once again, The Chase topped entertainment with 824,000 viewers, while Nine’s Hot Seat had 498,000 and 10’s The Bachelor just snuck into the top 20 most viewed with 375,000.
