Tuesday is The Good Doctor Night and it was a win for Seven, while, post I’m a Celebrity, Ten struggled to make an impression. In fact Ten’s most watched program nationally was the 7pm part of The Project. From then on it was downhill, and as I have said before, Ten, you do have a problem with Hughesy — the 567,000 from 8.30pm last night is nowhere near enough. That was fourth behind Seven, Nine and yet another series on the human body on the ABC. Ten will finish fourth again tonight with its weak line up against the ABC’s News, 7.30, Hard Quiz and Mad as Hell.

Married was again tops nationally with 1.70 million. It was also top in the metros with 1.23 million, but fifth in the regions with 476,000. MKR was second nationally with 1.56 million, second in the metros with 1.03 million but tops in the regions with 530,00. The Good Doctor again was the star with 1.36 million from 9 to 10 pm, easily cleaning out the opposition and pushing Seven to its now usual Tuesday night win.

In the regions MKR won with 530,000 viewers from Seven News with 526,000, The Good Doctor was third with 495,000, then Seven News/TT with 479,000, with Married on 476,000 in fifth spot.

As a Crikey subscriber and someone who began working as a journalist in 1957, I am passionate about the importance of independent media like Crikey. I met a lot of Australians from many walks of life during my career and did my best to share their stories honestly and fairly with their fellow citizens.

And I never forgot how important it is to hold politicians to account. Crikey does that – something that is more important now than ever before in Australia.
