It appears things in TV-land are starting to slow down as we head into the end-of-year period, with a rather quiet Thursday night.
Nine completely dominated the night across all channels (33.1 per cent) and primary channel (20.9 per cent), while also winning the 16-39 and 25-54 demo. They can certainly thank David Attenborough’s Seven Worlds One Planet for that, winning the top spot in entertainment for the night with 532,000 views, according to OzTAM metro numbers.
Here’s how the rest of the night ran.
Nine’s 6pm news bulletin enjoyed 702,000 eyeballs, while Current Affair pulled 702,000. Hot Seat saw 408,000 viewers tune in, while a screening Brits Icon: Elton John earned 263,000 eyeballs.
10 saw the following results: The Project (376,000), and Ten News First (285,000).
Seven’s night ran thus: Seven news (825,000), The Chase Australia (426,000) and Better Homes & Gardens (411,000) The Front Bar (367,000) and Sunrise (266,000).
ABC News saw 581,000 viewers tune in, while 379,000 Aussies tuned in for Grand Designs Australia.
Across all channels, Nine lead with 31.3 per cent, Seven came second on 29.0 per cent and 10 had 14.2 per cent. The ABC followed on 16.3 per cent and SBS pulled 9.2 per cent.
In the primary channel, Nine was on top with 20.9 per cent. Seven pulled 17.0 per cent, while 10 followed with 7.2 per cent.
