gogglebox TV ratings

Apart from the still-high levels of interest in news and current affairs between 5pm 8pm, viewers last night practiced a form of social distancing for viewing — they simply vanished. Nine ended up winning the night from Seven, Ten and the ABC, but the most watched non-news program was again Gogglebox Australia with 1.09 million national viewers.

Rebel Wilson’s Pooch Perfect on Seven should be doing well but it languished again last night with 448,000 national.

Nine News averaged 1.498 across its hour of news, which Nine boasted was the highest Thursday night figure for the program in 2020. Seven News averaged 2.04 million at 6pm (the highest for a Thursday night news for any network for years). The 7pm ABC News had another very solid night — 1.34 million nationally was the fifth best nationally. And that was the night.

In the regions it was Seven News with 723,000, Seven News 6.30 with 644,000, The Chase Australia 5.30pm with 434,000, 7pm ABC News, 430,000, and Seven News: The Latest, 404,000
