The comedy duo took 1.49m viewersas the most highly rated program of the Monday evening, according to OzTam’s preliminary figures. The usual favourite, The Block Sky High, came in 2nd, with its steady million followers reaching 1.447m. The comedy and reno scheduling along with the 5th highest rating show, A Current Affair (1.68m viewers), combined to give Nine an audience share of 33.7% for the night, though down from 37.8% on Sunday after day five of The Ashes’ first session.  

ABC saw a jump of five per cent in audience share on Sunday up to 20.2%. The network’s highest rating spot after the news (1.008m and 7th place) was Australian Story in 12th place with 826,000 viewers, while Media Watch had 15th place with 784,000 viewers and Four Corners’ in-depth report on the Chicago bombers took 17th spot thanks to 764,000 viewers.
