Moonlight premiered last night in Australia on Channel Nine. Its ratings ~ 696,000 viewers. The network paired it with ER (weird match) which rated 658,000 watchers. Since Moonlight grabbed more viewers than its lead-in, people must have switched channels just to watch it! Let's hope that is a good sign.
Another CBS show, Cane, was also on Australian television last night (Channel Ten) ~ 586,000 tuned in. NBC's 30 Rock (Network 7) only had 353,000 viewers. The top program was Vicar of Dibley (ABC) with 1,377,000.
I wanna urge all of our Aussie friends to watch Moonlight every week, and spread the word! :) It airs Wednesday nights at 9:30 on Channel Nine.
