The ABC’s all-things adland, Gruen, continues its impressive season, pulling 728,000 last night according to OzTAM metro numbers and making it the sixth most-watched show of Wednesday.
The Block was the most-watched entertainment show with 871,000, while 10’s The Bachelorette did 667,000.
Despite Nine’s protestations otherwise (primarily to B&T), Love Island continues to go backwards. It could only muster just 312,000 last night.
SBS’s returning Struggle Street returned (and struggled) to a reasonable 264,000.
Nine won the night with 27.1 per cent audience share (all channels). Seven rued its chances with 26.3 per cent. 10 had a neat 20, the ABC did a neat 18 and SBS did 8.6 per cent.
Seven’s 6pm news (981,000) beat Nine’s (765,000). ACA did 704,000.
