Dramatic Home and Away finale helps Seven take Wednesday

A straight-up Sopranos-style kidnapping/bush grave plot drew the audiences to sunny Summer Bay last night, as Seven took out the final Wednesday night of ratings season.

Seven claimed 29.1% of the audience last night, with The Chase, the evening news, and the aforementioned Home and Away all doing their usual high-rating thing for the network. Nine pulled 28.5% of viewers, with A Current Affar and Taronga: Who’s Who In The Zoo drawing audiences.

ABC attracted 19.7% of viewers, with 7:30, Hard Quiz, and Question Everything doing the numbers for them, while Ten drew 13.8% on a relatively quiet night for the network.

Finally, I suggest you Google Image search “Home and Away kidnap” to see just how many times this plot has worked wonders for the show in the past. Why would you ever move to Summer Bay?
