Saturday’s rain-out also scared off the majority of Ashes viewers, with Gem pulling just 240,000 for the first session of what turned out to be a thrilling final day’s play in the UK.

That dip allowed Seven to take the network spoils with a 34.8% share, ahead of Nine’s 30.5%, while Ten could only muster 15.9%.

The X Factor was most-watched show (1.522m) dominating in every demographic, while AGT was fifth overall (1.183m) according to the OzTam Overnight figures.

Underbelly: Squizzy was tenth with 782,000, and the first of Ten’s finals week MasterChef shows pulled in 716,000, while BBC drama Ripper Street languished in 18th with 472,000 viewers.

In primary channels Seven got 27.3%, Nine 21.4%, ABC 1 11.4%, Ten 10.6% and SBS One 3%.
