Everyone under a million

By David Knox on November 16, 2012 / Filed Under News 6

Only yesterday I tipped that there would be nights where nobody cracked the magic million, but I didn’t expect it to come so soon.

Last night the highest rating show on TV was Nine News at 986,000 viewers. It’s not the first time it’s happened (recently a Saturday was also under a million) but now it’s impacted upon a Thursday. Summer will see many more weeknights…

Seven Network was 29.8% then Nine 26.3%, TEN 19.0%, ABC 18.6% and SBS 6.3%.

Beauty and the Geek Australia (977,000) led for Seven followed by Seven News (966,000), Home and Away (938,000), Today Tonight (830,000), Deal or No Deal (493,000), The Unbelievable Truth (470,000). Family Guy was 232,000.

Nine News was 986,000 for Nine then ACA (968,000), Big Bang (680,000), CSI (638,000), Getaway (628,000), CSI: Miami (541,000) and Hot Seat (525,000).

Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals (578,000 / 572,000) was best for TEN. TEN News was 529,000, Modern Family was 525,000, Law and Order: SVU was 472,000 / 382,000. The Project 6pm was 351,000.

ABC News was 922,000 for ABC1 then 7:30 (781,000), Catalyst (727,000), Redfern Now (654,000), and Qi (495,000).

On SBS ONE it was One Born Every Minute (296,000), Jimmy and the Giant Supermarket (225,000), Luke Nguyen’s Greater Mekong 2 (215,000), My Sri Lanka with Peter Kuruvita (151,000) and World News Australia (147,000).

Big Bang banged it on multichannels with 283,000.

Sunrise‘s Coldplay concert lifted it to 406,000 viewers.
Today: 345,000
ABC News Breakfast: 54,000 / 27,000
Breakfast: 46,000

    It was Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2′s opening day at the Cinemas Australia wide on the 15th. While the Cinemas made a killing, it appears Free to Air Tv took a bit of a battering. All the teenagers and families werent home to watch Beauty and The geek and get it over 1 Mil. Im sure a fair few recorded it and watched it the next day tho ;)

    Coldplay were brilliant on Sunrise. Great show this morning when Derryn Hinch had a crack at Mel and Kochie for interviewing Mike tyson. He accused them of demeaning themselves for interviewing Tyson. Kochie stumbled and stammered before Mel said it was in the public interest. It all finished on friendly terms but made great TV watching the hosts on the backfoot.

    Coldplay : Worst band ever. Actually no, that’s Nickelback. Or maybe No Doubt…

    Even taking into account daylight saving 529k must be a low figure for Ten News at Five
