As Alan made his way to the big bucks win at 8.15pm, a record 436,500 New Zealander’s were watching Prime, versus TV1’s 400,300, 294,700 on TV2 and 423,100 on TV3.
Overall Who Wants To Be A Millionaire peaked at a 24.2% share, maintaining an average 18.8% share over the 7.30-8.30pm hour.
Prime expects the programme’s ratings records to continue with another New Zealand Millionaire wannabe, 51-year old chemist Scott Smith, opposite Eddie McGuire in the hot seat on Monday 11th October.
