‘Men’ draws boffo aud in Oz

Kutcher bow pulls 2.3 million Down Under

SYDNEY — Ashton Kutcher’s bow on “Two and a Half Men,” fastracked Down Under just hours after its Stateside bow, drew a boffo 2.3 million viewers to the Nine Network.

The figure reps the highest ever aud for the laffer Down Under with viewers peaking at 3.5 million, no doubt just tuning in for Kutcher’s entry to the skein as suicidal billionaire Walden Schmidt.

Such lofty ratings are rare nowadays, with the multi-channel universe fragmenting the audience, and are usually reserved for event TV shows like the final of Channel Ten’s juggernaut “MasterChef,” which drew 2.6 million.
