Nine won Sydney and Melbourne with Seven ahead in the other three markets. Seven won 25-54 while 10 topped the 16-39 age group.
Hard Quiz was the top entertainment show again, even with last week. The Bachelor held onto it audience from the launch episode the week before and easily topped the demos. ABC’s Mad As Hell improved and helped Planet America to make a rare top 20 appearance.
RBT and Emergency gained some viewers week-on-week for Nine while Highway Patrol on Seven dropped out to the top 20 to 21st (372,000) and 23rd (336,000) place. Seven’s movie was in 26th place with 312,000 while Tommy on 10 ranked 32nd with 240,000.
