What a strange dichotomy was last night’s ratings…..
My Kitchen Rules fell to a new all-time low at 1.02m viewers -yet it was still enough to top the night, which underlines just how high it has indeed ruled over the years. It was also the only show over the magic million.
Despite that sting in its tail, Seven had nearly a dream run in primetime timeslots last night, starting from The Chase right through to late night …
Only one show hindered a clean sweep: A Current Affair winning with 794,000 viewers.
I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here had its best night of the week at 787,000 and rising to 850,000 for the elimination of Lisa Curry, beating Planet Earth II.
Seven’s Murder Uncovered held strong with an extended outing, well ahead of Murder Calls.
Over on ABC it was a soft night, with The Weekly their best in entertainment, down slightly on 480,000 viewers, while SBS matched its Tuesday share.
Seven network easily won Wednesday with 32.5% then Nine 26.8%, TEN 19.3%, ABC 14.3% and SBS 7.1%.
