Thursday was an excellent performance by Network TEN winning the night in primary shares and forcing Nine into third place.
The Bachelorette was the #1 show of the night at 930,000 viewers, with Gogglebox‘s 674,000 as its biggest ever audience. It also won its timeslot.
While Nine managed 795,000 for RBT it plummeted to 396,000 for the second outing of The Verdict, despite the show improving on its earlier chaos.
SBS drama The Principal landed rave reviews on social media, finishing with 300,000, a modest rise on Wednesday’s performance.
But it was bad news for Please Like Me. While 129,000 improves on its ABC2 outings, the show is yet to overcome its place as being a critical hit but not a popular one.
Seven managed to win the night thanks to its multichannels pushing it over the line. The Chase continues to outrank Hot Seat but Mesmerised tanked at 411,000 -fourth in its slot.
