Nine’s night with Young Sheldon (1.31 million nationally and down 100,000 from Monday night), the fresh episode of The Big Bang Theory (1.20 million and also sliding) and a repeat of Big Bang at 8.30pm (1.04 million). Young Sheldon was tops nationally in the metros and regions when it started last week. Last night it was third nationally, fourth in the metros and third in the regions, with the audiences at series lows. It is a one off hit and will fade. 

Ten’s Batchelor in Paradise was watched by 985,000 people. Seven and the ABC had nothing of importance — Seven though ran the AFL-skewing The Front Bar last night and it grabbed a solid 527,000, including 139,000 in Melbourne. Sunrise really whacked Today yesterday — 492,000 to 382,000 nationally and 295,000 to 253,000 in the metros. 

In the regions Seven News was on top with 520,000 followed by Seven News/TT with 490,000, was Young Sheldon was third with 421,000, then Home and Away with 408,000, and fourth was The Big Bang Theory with 382,000.

I subscribe to Crikey because I believe in a free, open and independent media where news and opinions can be published that I can both agree with and be challenged by.

As a Crikey subscriber I always feel more informed and able to think more critically about issues and current affairs – even when they don’t always reflect my own political viewpoint or lived experience.
