Deviating from a news-heavy night of programming, the ABC premiered Exposed: The Ghost Train Fire, an investigative documentary looking at the infamous – and tragic – fire on Luna Park’s Ghost Train ride in 1979 where six boys and one man were killed.

The program was the first in a three-part series with 376,000 viewers, according to OzTAM metro numbers.

The other notable of the night was Seven’s Good Doctor that struggled to a disappointing 250,000.

MAFS again took top spot with 1,026,000 viewers, while Seven News was once more the best-performing news show at 927,000. Nine News followed at 845,000.

A Current Affair came in at 703,000 while ABC News had 678,000 viewers.

The rest of the ABC’s night had 7.30 at 543,000 viewers and Foreign Correspondent at 447,000.

Deviating from a news-heavy night of programming, the ABC also premiered Exposed: The Ghost Train Fire, an investigative documentary looking at the infamous – and tragic – fire on Luna Park’s Ghost Train ride in 1979 where six boys and one man were killed.

For Seven, Home And Away secured 537,000 viewers while The Chase had 515,000, beating 10’s The Amazing Race Australia which had 480,000. Surveillance Oz Dashcam secured 287,000 viewers for the network.

It may be time for the ICU for Seven’s medical drama The Good Doctor, which just edged its way into the top twenty most-watched shows with a viewership of 250,000.

Last week it had 238,000 viewers and the week before it secured 327,000.

For Nine Hot Seat had 384,000 viewers while Botched had 271,000. 10’s The Project had 400,000 while 10 News First had 303,000.

Nine (all channels) came top overall for the daily share at 33 per cent, followed by Seven (all channels) at 23 per cent.

For those keeping track of the ongoing battle between Network 10 and the ABC Network for bronze medal, Tuesday night was a real nailbiter. The ABC eked out over 10 by just 0.1 per cent in thrilling fashion (17.7 per cent of the daily share to 17.6 per cent).

The SBS had seven per cent, heading down the train tracks with Great Australian Railway Journeys, which had 240,000 viewers.
