Sunday TV Wrap: Cassie Sainsbury Helps 60 Minutes & Nine To Big Win

A dodgy interview with accused cocaine smuggler Cassie Sainsbury from her Bogotá prison cell has helped 60 Minutes to its best night of 2017, and Nine to a commanding win in the battle for Sunday Night eyeballs.

Liam Bartlett’s interview, that appeared to paint Sainsbury as a serial liar, pulled 1.04 million viewers for Nine.

Combined with The Block (1.07 million), Nine had 35.5 per cent audience share last night. Seven was second with 28.8 per cent, the ABC was third with 16.9 per cent. Things were embarrassing for Ten who could only muster 12 per cent and the SBS had 6.7 per cent.

Seven and Nine’s 6pm news bulletins both managed 1.07 million viewers. While Seven’s Little Big Shots did well with 1.02 million viewers. However, Sunday Night was well and truly trumped, managing 633,000, and Heists That Shook the World  (299,000) rounded out Seven’s night.

Over at Ten, Survivor was its best pulling 570,000, while no one seems to care about the Sunday version of The Project, as it fell to a dangerous 301,000.

The ABC had a robust evening with The Doctor Blake Mysteries again doing well with an impressive 734,000. Its 7pm new bulletin had 719,000, Grand Designs: House of the Year pulled 540,000, Classic Countdown had 279,000) and Fearless was 254,000.

Over at the SBS, The Ascent of Civilization was its best with a rather miserable 225,000.
