Selling Houses Australia Takes the Lead

It’s a quiet night for sports or any major drama shows, giving the spotlight on lifestyle shows that are worth tuning in for a quiet night in. Selling Houses Australia has always been consistent with scoring high ratings even during its past seasons, which makes it no surprise that it’s still scoring big to this day. Other favourites for this Wednesday includes the highly acclaimed MotherFatherSon, the juicy Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and the new season of Grand Designs Australia.

It’s All About the Kids On A Wednesday

Nothing like a good old Wednesday when the kids can enjoy all their favourite shows, right? About 90% of the top 10 spots are taken by kids shows including Bluey, Peppa Pig, Floogals, Octonauts, Peter Rabbit, Rusty Rivets, and many others. If not for NCIS cinching a spot in the top 10, the kids shows would’ve reigned completely. But then again, who’s complaining?
