Yet again, Seven goes into the 6 pm news ratings the firm favourite at $1.10
As pointed out previously, it’s the audiences in Perth and Adelaide where Seven smashes Nine to win the slot nationally.
On the Eastern seaboard, it’s far more competitive between Seven and Nine, but Nine tends to win out.
Being a Saturday night and no footy to broadcast from Seven’s end, might get more viewers in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane to give Nine a boost and give them a win for the week.
Worth a shot at $5.75.
We’re all in on Channel 9 tonight.
If they can get a win in the 6 pm news, a special COVID 19 edition of A Current Affair and the screening of Back To Future Part II makes for some half-decent viewing.
Rival networks Seven is also going with news, with 7pm the latest edition and Thor, Channel 10 has back to back episodes of Ambulance Australia, SBS is showing a documentary on the Cola Wars and the ABC sticks with British drama.
For us – Nine is Still the One this Saturday night.
Saturday night is movie night for the Free To Air networks.
Granted, in the age of Netflix and Stan watching a movie on Free To Air television with ad breaks isn’t ideal but if you stumble across one you do find yourself watching it.
My tip here is a personal bias.
I love the Back to the Future trilogy and there’s something ironic about watching people travel to the future – 2015 when it’s in the past.
So grab your self-drying puffer vest, automatic Nike Air Mag shoes, your Hoverboard and cold bottle of Pepsi Perfect and join Marty and the Doc for your night’s entertainment and give Thor a miss.
