Australia may have cleaned-up in the Commonwealth Games pool and broadcaster Seven definitely enjoyed a rating high following the medal avalanche.
However, Games viewer numbers have taken a hit – albeit a slight one – following the end of the swim program.
Still, last night’s action still managed 1.2 million viewers and handed Seven another trouncing victory. The broadcaster had 41.2 per cent audience share but it is down from the lofty highs of over 50 per cent during the first week of the Games.
Nine managed 24.1 per cent, Ten pulled 16.3 per cent, the ABC had 13.6 per cent and SBS again struggled to find many eyeballs, managing just 4.9 per cent.
Best for Nine was its 6pm news (909,000), ACA (730,000) and Hot Seat (517). Yet another James Bond flick, this time Spectre, pulling 389,000 for the broadcaster.
Bachelor In Paradise did reasonable well over at Ten, pulling 736,000. While The Project was its next best with 459,000.
At the ABC, all of its programs appeared to be suffering a case of Commonwealth Games willies. Its night went thus: ABC News (613,000), Hot Seat (570,000), Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell (544,000), 7:30 (440,000), Sando (254,000), Think Tank (207,000) and Insert Name Here (157,000).
SBS’ miserable run continues with SBS World News its best with just 141,000, while a lowly 95,000 tuned-in for Martin Luther King: His Legacy.
