10’s The Bachelor was the most watched entertainment show of Thursday, as Nine went Block-free.
However, the honours went to Seven as the most-watched network and it didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary.
Seven’s 6pm news topped the time sheets with 1.017 million viewers according to OzTAM metro numbers. It also did well with The Chase (640,000), Home And Away (574,000) and the ever-resilient The Front Bar (439,000).
All that gave Seven 31.1 per cent audience share (all channels). Nine had 24.9 per cent, 10 did 19.7 per cent, the ABC had 15.3 per cent and SBS did nine per cent.
Nine’s best were its 6pm news (883,000), ACA (695,000), Hot Seat (478,000) and the Broncos-Cowboys NRL game (348,000).
Over at 10, The Bachelor had 680,000, The Project pulled 494,000, 10 News First managed 357,000 and a repeat of Law & Order had 297,000.
The ABC’s evening ran thus: 7pm news (637,000), 7.30 (523,000) and Escape From The City (419,000).
