Sunday TV Wrap: Test Cricket Dead? No One Told Ashes Fans

Cricket fans have tuned-in in their droves for yesterday’s Ashes coverage, with overnight OzTAM figures revealing Nine’s coverage hitting a high of 1.17 million viewers.

However, it wasn’t enough to give Nine the night with Seven winning with 32.4 per cent audience share. Nine was second with 31.7 per cent and the ABC grabbed third with 17.4 per cent. Ten’s Sunday night misery continued with just 12.4 per cent and SBS rummaged-up six per cent.

The cricket also gave Nine a halo effect as 1.26 million tuned-in for its delayed news bulletin. While the Family Food Fight elimination managed 716,000 and was one of its most watched episodes since launch.

Seven’s 6pm news pulled a credible 1.04 million viewers considering a lot of people were still watching the cricket on Nine. Seven’s Sunday Night (804,000) also landed bragging rights over Nine’s 60 Minutes (622,000). Border Security (665,000) and the movie Love Actually (442,000) were Seven’s other highlights.

It was fairly grim night all round for Ten with none of its show cracking the 300,000-mark. Supercars: Newcastle 500 was its best with 298,000, followed by Bull with 266,000, Wisdom of the Crowd  had 248,000 and The Sunday Project managed 239,000.

Sans Doctors Martin and Blake, the ABC’s viewer numbers took a hit. Its 7pm news bulletin pulled 727,000, followed by Friday on My Mind (468,000), Making Muriel (418,000) and Classic Countdown (184,000).

SBS’s best was Secrets of China’s Forbidden City that managed 279,000 viewers.
