Nine’s The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey has proven to be a surprise hit with its concluding episode lifting even higher than Part 1.
It was the highest rating show last night with 1.28m viewers, up on Monday’s 1.01m. The show topped the Demos and was trending at #1 on Twitter last night as it pointed the finger at 9 year old Burke Ramsey as a jealous sibling.
The success of the doco was bad news for 800 Words (592,000) and ABC’s doco with Andrew Bolt & Linda Burney Recognition: Yes or No (375,000). Offerings at 9:30pm were not even in the ballpark against the might of the JonBenét mystery.
Earlier in the night The Block won its timeslot, with Australian Survivor, Zumbo and 7:30 all scrambling for remaining places.
Seven News and ACA both won their slots, with Who Do You Think You Are? happily on par with last week for SBS.
Nine network easily won the night with 35.0% then Seven 25.8%, TEN 17.6%, ABC 14.6%, and SBS 7.0%.
