Nine’s Travel Guides continued to consolidate its position as a Wednesday night leader in yesterday evening’s programming, with 719,000 viewers.
In recent weeks, it has been competing with the ABC’s Hard Quiz – sometimes besting it, sometimes being bested – but with no Hard Quiz last night, it sailed to an entertainment win.
Last night’s ep saw the travellers explore South Korea, where they visited the Demilitarised Zone between North and South Korea, and also received K-Pop makeovers.
