Seven’s controversial Sunday Night featuring Schapelle Corby pulled in just 1.086 million last night, despite the hype, to come second to Nine’s 60 Minutes.

Seven’s ‘interview’ with the convicted drug smuggler attracted a huge amount of attention with reports the network paid up to $2m for an interview with Corby leading to a raid of Seven’s office and that of its lawyer’s by the Australian Federal Police.

Despite the media attention Sunday Night‚Äã, which didn't interview Corby but was present as she settled into her sister's Bali villa, came in seventh place overall to sit behind Nine’s 60 Minutes which won 1.208 million from 7.40pm.

Nine’s drama Fat Tony & Co again proved more popular than Seven’s import Downton Abbey. At 8.40pm Fat Tony & Co pulled in 1.132 million viewers to be Sunday night’s fifth most watched program.

Downton Abbey at 9pm pulled in less than one million viewers (991,000) and sat in eighth place.

Seven did win 6pm to 8pm with My Kitchen Rules and Seven News (1.248 million).

In first place My Kitchen Rules won 1.624 million viewers to beat Nine’s The Block. However The Block: Fans v Faves wasn’t far behind, sitting on 1.504 million viewers.

Nine News won 1.124 million viewers.

At 7.30pm Ten’s So You Think You Can Dance came fourth behind the other reality blockbusters and the ABC’s David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive (764,000).

So You Think You Can Dance pulled in 408,000 viewers to Ten and the elimination episode brought in 329,000.

Seven won the night overall with a total 34.1% share of all free-to-air viewers. Its ratings were boosted by the V8 Supercars with race three bringing in 647,000 viewers.

Seven’s main channel sat 26.5%.

Nine came in second place on a total 30.8% and 25% for its primary channel.

The ABC came in third on a total 15.7% with 11.7% going to ABC1. In fourth place sat Ten on a combined 13.3% with 7.6% for its main channel.
