Seven’s debut of its new miniseries about illustrious music critic, journo and personality Ian “Molly” Meldrum has scored big for the network as the first episode won the night.
The debut of Molly aired on Sunday evening from 8.30pm to 10.30pm, with 1.793 million people tuning in, in a five city metro, according to OzTam’s preliminary ratings.
Couple that with Seven’s reality cooking show My Kitchen Rules – which was the second most watched show for Sunday night with 1.399 million people – and Seven’s news with 1.068 million, the team at the network is no doubt popping some champagne today.
The programs helped boost Seven’s total audience share for last night, shoving the network into an easy first place with 39.2 per cent, according to OzTam.
Despite coming second in total audiene share, Nine didn’t even come close to Seven with a share of 22.4 per cent.
ABC took out third place with 17.9 per cent, pushing Ten into fourth place with a 14.8 per cent share.
SBS came fifth with a 5.7 per cent share.
