Wednesday TV Wrap: Seven’s News The Gold Medal Performer, As The Olympic Network Leaves Rivals In Its Wake

Seven’s 6pm news bulletin enjoyed an Olympics halo last night, pulling an impressive 1.368 million viewers as people tuned in to watch repeats of Aussie athletes’ gold medal winning ways during the day.

The bulletin was the most-watched show of Wednesday and was a good 250,000-plus on rival Nine’s 6pm effort that did 1.1 million according to OzTAM metro numbers.

Seven’s evening Olympics coverage peaked at 1.364 million, while the afternoon sessions managed 1.046 million viewers who arguably should’ve been working from home and not watching sport on TV.

Understandably, Seven romped home with yesterday’s audience numbers pulling a whopping 52.3 per cent of all eyeballs (all channels.) Nine was a very distant second with 19.1 per cent, 10 had 12.5 per cent, the ABC posted 11.3 per cent and SBS limped to just 4.8 per cent.

Its news aside, other highlights for Nine were ACA (671,000), Hot Seat (551,000) and a repeat of Travel Guides (454,000).

10’s best was its 10 News First with 428,000.

While the ABC’s evening went this way: 7pm news (693,000), 7.30 (495,000), Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (436,000) and Hard Quiz (412,000). Which we all down as all eyes switched to Tokyo.
