Nine was the top primary channel (20.0%) and network (28.1%) last night thanks in part to the finale of the first season of Parental Guidance.

Parental Guidance had 478,000 viewers as it crowned the parents with the best parenting style.

The Free Range Parents, Penny and Daniel, were awarded the best parenting style by the other parents participating in the program. The pair said of their win: “We don’t feel that our parenting style is better than others, the real win is the experience we have all shared. We have gained so much from the other parents and we just feel really grateful for that.”

A repeat of Travel Guides then took 471,000 viewers to Western Australia.

Love Island Australia then had 180,000 as Ryan Reid was dumped from the villa and left Aaron Waters upset that he was left crying because it was bad for his skin.


Home and Away was the top non-news program last night with 534,000 viewers tuning in to the Aussie TV staple.

Big Brother VIP then followed with 302,000 viewers tuning in. It was a Jessika Power and Imogen Anthony heavy episode with both of them making a personal confession in the diary room before teaming up to trash the Big Brother hotel after they found out that evicted housemates Ellie Gonsalves and Dayne Beams can earn their way back into the competition. 

Curse of the Chippendales then continued with the double episode bringing in 127,000 and 111,000 viewers.


The Project had 241,000 (6:30pm) and 394,000 (7:00pm) as the show continued its William Tyrrell coverage and also unpacked Victoria’s pandemic laws.

The Dog House Australia then had 521,000 viewers as Onyx the kelpie was joined by Missy the shihtzu and Fox the chihuahua cross in their search for their forever homes. The episode was down on last week’s season high of 575,000 but was #1 in the 16-39 demo last night.

The Cheap Seats then followed with its penultimate episode of the year, bringing in 358,000 viewers.


The ABC took advantage of Lisa Wilkinson‘s prominent spot in the news cycle in recent weeks by airing a repeat of her appearance on Anh’s Brush with Fame. The rehashing brought in 318,000 viewers.

Another repeat then followed in Mystify Michael Hutchence, which had 236,000 viewers.
