TV’s top 20 of Week 37: Wild Boys score gold

Another strong week for Seven in week 37 as the network takes eight of the top ten shows including the top three spots.

The Gold rush-era bushranger drama starring Daniel McPherson and Michael Dorman, Wild Boys premiered on Sunday 4 September strongly, as the highest ranking show of the week with 1.685m. However, it’s second episode, airing last night, dropped to 1.398m.

All four X Factor Auditions performed strongly, despite some of the shows competitors performing poorly – but that’s the attraction. Tuesday’s episode came second in the week’s ratings with 1.637m. Wednesday’s episode was fifth at 1.525m, Monday’s episode was seventh with 1.475m and Thursday’s episode came ninth with 1.399m.

Packed to the Rafters was Seven’s other strong performer in third place with 1.621m, followed by Nine’s Underbelly: Razor at 1.564m.

The rest of the top ten was rounded out with Sunday Night (Seven) placing sixth at 1.480m, Nine News Sunday was eighth with 1.404m with Seven News Sunday rounding out the top ten at 1.385m.

Worthy of a mention is ABC1’s efforts with The Gruen Transfer coming in at 15 with 1.172m and political lampoon comedy At Home With Julia at 19 with 1.047m.
