WHAT DO Peppa Pig, Bananas in Pyjamas and Charlie and Lola have in common?

Yes they all air on ABC2, but more importantly they all out-rated Channel 9's encore screening of its Schapelle telemovie last night.

The second consecutive screening of the drama, portraying Schapelle Corby's arrest and conviction for drug smuggling in Bali, was the 43rd most-watched show of the night, attracting just 241,000 viewers across the five metro cities.

That's just a quarter of the 1.022 million viewers the telemovie managed to pull on its debut on Sunday night against Seven's highly promoted INXS mini-series.

The broadcaster's last-minute decision to move the telemovie from its original Monday night timeslot to Sunday, the first night of the 2014 ratings survey, proved to be a massive miscalculation with the first half of INXS: Never Tear Us Apart winning the night.

Even Nine's news special Schapelle: Finally Free did significantly better than the telemovie last night as the 15th most-watched show.

Seven won last night with its ratings juggernaut My Kitchen Rules, which was watched by nearly two million viewers across the five cities.
