Slow start for Nine’s Rescue Special Ops

Rescue Special OpsNine’s big Sunday night hope of action drama Rescue Special Ops opened with only a moderate ratings audience on Sunday night, despite being heavily promoted.  

Indeed, it was Nine’s evening of 1.1m. Random Acts of Kindness, 60 Minutes and the home grown Rescue Special Ops all hovered around that level, taking the network to a poor third for the night.

It was a similarly steady tale at Ten where back-to-back movies of Eragon and The Devil Wears Prada both did 1.2m.

There was more fluctuation at Seven – which won the night thanks to Dancing With the Stars (1.6m) and its reenactment of the viral JK Wedding Entrance video, before the audience fell away with double episodes of Bones.

Sunday night’s share: Seven 30%; Ten 26.6%; Nine 23.5%; ABC 11.7%; SBS 8.2%
