Another high combined share for the digital channels tells us how dire main channel viewing was last night -- 33.6%. Nothing stood out on the main channels. News and current affairs programs ruled. The rest were tired offerings, repeats and also-rans. Cram on Ten had just 378,000 national viewers. The 6.30 pm part of The Project had more viewers -- 432,000 and the 7pm part had 632,000 -- then Ten lost 254,000 viewers. That says it all about Cram.

In regional markets Seven News was tops with 477,000, followed by Seven News/Today Tonight with 414,000, then Home and Away with 395,000, the 7pm ABC News was fourth with 325,000 and the 5.30 pm bit of The Chaser was fifth with 324,000. And that was the night.
