Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings

The Good Doctor, more Don Burke scandals and repeats dominated a fairly dreary night.

Easy night — The Good Doctor (1.62 million nationally) and Instant Hotel (1.012 million nationally) did the job for Seven with an assist from the news. The Don Burke disclosures continued on A Current Affair (1.00 million nationally) and 7.30 (874,000). And that was the night. The digital channels combined share was 31.9%, another sign of the approaching summer lull when even third and fourth ranked repeats on these channels hold more appeal than the main channel offerings.

In regional markets The Good Doctor won with 575,000 viewers, with Seven News second with 516,000, then Seven News/Today Tonight with 448,000, followed by Home and Away with 427,000 and then Instant Hotel in fifth with 404,000.
