After UK broadcasters saw their ratings tank when they interrupted programming to air wall-to-wall coverage commemorating Prince Philip after his death on Friday, the ABC aired an official commemoration to the Duke of Edinburgh.
Over the weekend, the network received complaints when they interrupted Vera to broadcast news of the Duke’s death. Last night’s show – originally broadcasting by the BBC – HRH The Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021 pulled a relatively low 323,000 viewership according to OzTAM’s metro data.
MAFS topped last night’s TV ratings with the final vow ceremony as Georgia and Liam parted ways dramatically but Rebecca and Jake, and Patrick and Belinda decided to stay in their couples for the foreseeable future. Awww.
