Part two of How to Sell A Massacre drops 150,000 viewers, still beats NRL

Al Jazeera’s undercover documentary on One Nation’s involvement with the NRA has failed to hold onto the momentum from Tuesday evening, losing almost 150,000 viewers for part two.

Premiering to 595,000 viewers, last night’s conclusion saw 458,000 metro viewers tune in, making it the 11th most watched show for the night.

Seven also lost viewers on the AFL – last week’s first match of the season brought 728,000 metro viewers to the channel, but last night’s clash between Collingwood and Richmond only saw 627,000 viewers tune in.

Nine’s NRL showing slipped in just behind How to Sell A Massacre, landing 456,000 metro viewers.

Ten secured a rare win with reliable ratings grabber Gogglebox coming in at 584,000 metro viewers, pushing the channel to an 11.7% daily share, narrowly edging out ABC on 9.7%.

Seven took the top share for the night at 23.4%, thanks largely to Seven News coming in as the most watched show for the night with 853,000 metro viewers.

Without Married At First Sight, Nine’s biggest audience went to the news with 803,000 viewers and a daily share for the channel of 18.4%.

On a network level it was much the same – Seven Network landed 35.4%, Nine held 24.8%, Ten followed with 17.4% and the ABC rounded things out with 14.8%.

In the multi-channels 7mate was the winner with 4.1%, followed by 7TWO on 4.0%. SBS came in with 5.0%.
