Wednesday Ratings | TRAVEL GUIDES boosts Nine; 10 fourth

What are YOU watching instead of FTA? Me? Wednesdays are all about Gogglebox Australia and Mad As Hell for me…

A topical matter (578,000) in vacation mode, but still the biggest thing at 7 p.m. travel guides (665,000) takes prime time by a huge margin, leaving a repeat of MOVIE: Crocodile Dundee II (274,000) nothing to do but not well aged (“Do you know who that was? Crint Eastwood!”).
Top nine in the primary (22%) and network (31.1%) rankings.

The best of Seven was again Far from home (489,000), and he did all the heavy lifting for the night. Billy Connolly: my absolute pleasure (312,000) was a nice visit with the Big Yin (maybe our last). Turns out the audience didn’t care America has extreme talent (80,000), while Melbourne was very keen on The front bar (269,000), representing 64% of its audience…both were rebounded in the program based on the city’s AFL watchdog status.
Seven second in the primary (17.9%) and network (25.4%) rankings.

ABC’s Wednesday gets off to a good start with the 7:30 a.m. (497,000)/difficult quiz (563,000) double for a solid second place in prime time. Crazy as hell by Shaun Micallef (473,000) and tomorrow tonight (282,000) are both down, while MICF AllStars SuperShow (174,000) provides a parish audience for linear broadcast.
ABC fourth in the primary (14.1%) and network (18.6%) rankings.

Yes The project (204,000 6:30 p.m.; 304,000 7 p.m.) is not in holiday mode, it should be. With these numbers, they could play repeats and get similar numbers (would anyone notice?). A double repetition Ambulance Australia (255,000; 278,000) provides a unique situation where the second repetition rate is higher than the first (!). New Bull (152,000) and It’s us (47,000) fill the late night for fans.
10 third in the primary (9.5%) and network (16.5%) rankings.

SBS night has always been like this: Coast to Coast by Tony Robinson (135,000), The rise of the Nazis (133,000) and The answering machine (43,000).
SBS fifth in the primary (4.4%) and network (8.3%) rankings.
