The God Complex has debuted in Australia to respectable ratings. TV Tonight reports that, up against the football finals on the commercial stations, the episode averaged 591,000 viewers in the five major capital cities. It was the second highest rating drama and the eighth highest rating programme for the day overall. The corresponding Confidential Cutdown rated 408,000 viewers in the five major capitals. These overnight figures, however, do not include regional, rural and time-shifted viewers and hence significantly understate the actual national ratings.
Meanwhile in New Zealand, the latest episodes of Doctor Who and Torchwood: Miracle Day (both on Prime) rated 119,850 viewers and 77,780 viewers respectively.
