Last night’s Big Brother peaked at 726,000 viewers for the winner announcement, while the rest of the episode peaked at 672,000, as per OzTAM’s metro data.
Okay, spoilers here, so scroll down a paragraph if you’re a devoted Big Brother fan planning to watch it on BVOD later:
Fan favourite Marley took out the crown and the $250,000 cash prize. In a very heartwarming winners’ speech, he said, “first of all I’m going to buy all of these guys a beautiful drink. And second, just going to take care of dad. Whatever he needs, whatever he wants. We’re going to take care of dad and set him up for the rest of his life.”
Aw! A worthy winner in B&T’s eyes.
High numbers were in for the news again as Seven News netted 1,243,000 viewers and Nine News had 1,187,000. With the NT, parts of WA and a big chunk of NSW in lockdown, there’s little else to do other than turn on the telly and hope for a heartwarming news story of a firefighter saving a kitten from a tree, or something.
