Nine’s The Big Bang Theory was the most watched non-news show in the Tuesday night ratings, bringing in just under 1m, according to preliminary ratings from OzTam.
Broadcast at 7pm, it was up against Home & Away on Seven and The Biggest Loser on Ten, which rated with 960,000 and 951,000, respectively.
However, The Biggest Loser was the most popular show in the advertiser friendly 16-39 and 18-49 demographics, followed by The Big Bang Theory and 2 Broke Girls, both on Nine.
The night was won by Seven News, which pulled in 1.249m in the 6pm time slot during the Easter non-ratings period.
There were only three other shows to eclipse 1m viewers – Nine News, Today Tonight and A Current Affair.
Seven’s Sunrise was well on top at breakfast, beating Nine’s Today by 71,000 viewers, with 372,000.
