Only one program mattered last night -- The Good Doctor which lifted its audience from last Thursday, just as Tuesday’s episode lifted its audience from a week earlier. Last night, The Doc managed 1.568 million up from 1.490 million with the metro audience rising to 1.005 million from 950,000. With a solid night for Seven’s Instant Hotel -- 1.088 million -- it was Seven’s night and week.
Gogglebox on Ten did well with 830,000 national viewers and lots of cheeky focus group comments for the networks. Cram though an hour earlier on Ten at 7.30 was nothing to boast about -- 504,000 nationally and just 363,000 in the metros. Ten’s 2018 launch yesterday has this one returning next year. That’s a call too soon. Last night’s ep went on and on and on and has to be cut to half an hour and tightened up.
