Freddie Mercury may have passed away 27 years ago, but he’s still managing to pull a crowd if last night’s telly numbers are to be believed.
The seven-year-old documentary Queen: Days of our Lives was the most watched entertainment show last night, pulling 691,000 for broadcaster Nine.
Nine took home 31.3 per cent of the audience numbers and Sunday bragging rights. Seven had to rue its chances with 30.8 per cent, the ABC took bronze and 16.6 per cent, 10 was again disappointing with 13.7 per cent and SBS had 7.6 per cent.
In the battle of the 6pm news bulletins, Seven (903,000) saw off rival Nine (815,000). However, 60 Minutes (643,000) turned the tables on Sunday Night (432,000).
Seven’s other notables were All Together Now (684,000) and Harry & Meghan: The First Tour (195,000).
Once again, 10 had the Sunday night wobbles, its evening running thus: The Sunday Project (326,000), NCIS (283,000), 10 News First (254,000), Game of Games (229,000) and Bondi Rescue (152,000).
Over at the ABC, things went this way: ABC News (705,000), Don’t Stop the Music (465,000), the finale of Pine Gap (348,000), City In The Sky (145,000) and Australia Remembers: Armistice Day (97,000).
While for SBS, ancient Rome still works, as Pompeii’s Final Hours pulled a less than explosive 240,000.
