Gallipoli fatigue? The well-reviewed and highly-anticipated two-part drama Deadline Gallipoli drew in just 76,000 viewers on Foxtel's Showcase on Sunday Night, and even fewer last night, when just 46,000 tuned in. Even for Foxtel, it's not a large audience, especially for such a highly promoted screening.
On its first night, it didn't even make the top 20 programs on pay TV, floundering behind multiple episodes of The Simpsons. Last night saw 206,000 Foxtel subscribers tune into Game of Thrones (also on Showcase) when it went live to air at 11 am and 293,000 watched the 7.30pm repeat. The most watched program on subscription TV last night was the NRL game involving Cronulla and South Sydney (Russell Crowe’s side). The game was watched by 338,000 viewers
