The biggest-rating Wednesdays of every year are when Nine screens its three State Of Origin clashes. Those matches screened in May, June and July with respective primary channel shares of 38.3% twice and 40.5% for the third game.
My Kitchen Rules delivered some big Wednesday shares for Seven with a high in March of 28.2%.
TEN’s midweek peak came much later in the year when The Bachelorette was key to delivering a primary channel share of 20.5% on the penultimate night.
