Thursday TV Wrap: Kyrgios’ Five-Setter Proves Just The Tonic For Nine

Nine’s tennis coverage had a successful Night with 704,000 OzTAM metro viewers, no doubt thanks to Nick Kyrgios’ epic five-set battle against Frenchman Ugo Humbert.

Last night saw a five-set tennis tournament that Kyrgios described as, “one of the craziest matches I have ever played.” It was a solid improvement for Channel Nine, whose coverage peaked at 460,000 the previous night

The ABC also had a good night, with Hard Quiz securing 598, 000 viewers to make it the best performing TV that wasn’t news or tennis. The Week With Charlie Pickering clinched 507, 000 viewers, as the eleventh most-watched show last night. Alas, if not for Home and Away’s 510, 000 viewers, The Week could’ve made the top ten.

ABC secured 17.3 percent of the total share, pipping Channel 10 – who saw just 15.9 percent of the total viewership – at the post.

It was a disappointing night for Channel 10, who just cracked the top fifteen most-watched shows with The Project, which totalled 429, 000 viewers.

Nine won the night with 34 per cent of the total viewership (all channels). Thanks to Kyrgios, you would say they were saved by the ball.

The other highlight for Nine was Nine News which saw 829,000 viewers. Seven News took out the top spot with 994,000 viewers.

Seven also saw wins with The Chase Australia at 530,000 viewers, while Ambulance: Code Red had 366,000 viewers.

For 10, News First saw 359 000 viewers and Jamie’s Easy Meals For Every Day got 268, 000.

ABC News had 633, 000 viewers, and comedy Aftertaste took 352, 000.

The SBS’s best was Britain’s Most Historic Towns at 239, 000.
