Seven’s Highway Patrol had a huge debut last night, revving up to 1.7m viewers (or 1,699,000 to be specific).
The factual from Greenstone Pictures, makers of New Zealand’s Motorway Patrol which screens on Nine, is made in conjunction with Victoria Police Traffic Units. It was the #1 show of the night.
In Melbourne, following the Brownlow Medal Blue Carpet it pulled 637,000. But even in Sydney without AFL‘s big night it was the top show on 390,000. Brisbane was 283,000, Adelaide and Perth 195,000 and 194,000 respectively.
Seven appears to have a new local hit.
The network certainly had a huge night, soaring to a 35.7% share -even GO! will have its work cut out helping Nine to win the week after that victory.
If it was bad news for anyone, it was TEN. Its top show was TEN News at Five on 854,000. The network finished the night on just 16.9%.
Top Gear held at 924,000 for SBS.
