Seven’s night in metro and regional markets. Ten did very well in the demos thanks to The Bachelor and Offspring — bodice-ripping TV — especially among female viewers. Men though liked Gruen.

Gruen was OK; more of the same. The Katering Show lived up to the hype. Gruen ended up the third-most watched national program with 1.316 million viewers (954,000 metro/361,000 regional viewers).

The meat market (aka The Bachelor) had 1.127 million national viewers — 819,000 metro and 308,000 regional viewers. Offspring had 1.109 million national viewers — 783,000 metro and 326,000 regional viewers.

Today won metro breakfast yesterday — 303,000 to Sunrise’s 284,000.
