Nine’s Hey Hey It’s Saturday and Seven’s war drama The Pacific last night had their lowest audience share since launching last month.  

Hey Hey It’s Saturday saw 1.034m tune in, according to preliminary overnight OzTam data in the main metro markets.

This was down from the 1.2m of last week and the 1.5m it attracted for its launch episode.
