The Good Doctor continues to improve the Seven's health.

Seven’s night because of the innate year appeal of a certain Good Doctor — the Tuesday outing averaged 1.75 million national viewers, 1.12 million metro and 626,000 regional viewers. And that was the night. Seven’s Instant Hotel did well with 1.06 million viewers. It’s a good idea and like My Kitchen Rules and The Block, it all depends on the casting. 

What was interesting was the massive turn on from Instant Hotel to The Good Doctor — a huge 77% more viewers in the metros last night — from 633,000 for Instant Hotel to 1.12 million for the Doc. Nationally it was nearly 65% more viewers, or 688,000. That is ratings gold for a TV network. It shows viewers are actively looking for a program and flocking to it because they like it.
