Ten Network’s newest foray into drama, the six-part series “Tripping Over,” has drawn a respectable aud of 1.3 million, losing about 300,000 viewers from popular lead-in “House.”
“Tripping,” a co-production with Blighty’s Five, was heavily hyped in a market that has not seen much new drama of late. It’s about Aussies who travel to Blighty and Brits who come Down Under, common rites of passage for both countries.
Although fourth overall on the night, the skein took a 43% share in the 18-49 demographic, which Ten re-cently announced it is targeting.
“We are delighted with the result of ‘Tripping Over,’ especially in the 18-49 profile, as it was commissioned with that audience in mind,” said Ten programming topper David Mott.
