Gogglebox Australia still a hit for Channel 10 with the reality show wining the entertainment ratings battle for the network
Channel Seven beat out network rivals in Thursday’s ratings thanks to a strong showing by their news team and AFL coverage.
But it was Gogglebox Australia on third-place commercial station Channel 10 that was kicking goals in the entertainment stakes.
The popular show, which sees everyday Aussies react to the best TV moments of the week that was, recorded a strong metro audience of 502,000.

Channel Nine dropped to second position in the overall network contest with their coverage of the NRL Titans-West Tigers game pulling just 316,00 fans.
Meanwhile 438,000 AFL supporters were drawn from the major metro centres to see the Swans lose a close game to Western Bulldogs at Marvel stadium.
Nine was beaten by the Seven news department Thursday, but only just.
Seven Nightly News pulled 878,000 viewers against Nine News’ 838,00 in the metro ratings.
