What Sydney Watched

What's Hot: 60 Minutes (9) 581,800 viewers, ranked 6

"...but the big improver was 60 Minutes, which featured an Elizabeth Hayes interview with David Campbell, son of Jimmy Barnes.

"Adopting the style of running a well-promoted story last, 60 Minutes saw its audience grow from 528,000 to 608,000, forcing the sitcoms Home Improvements and Dharma and Greg to take 3rd place behind The Simpsons."

(Included a small picture of David Campbell)

i.e., an extra 80,000 people in Sydney alone turned to 60 Minutes half-way through the program to see the David Campbell story.

Simpsons Ratings were 415,400
Home Improvements 401,000
