The launch of Nine’s new crime drama Fat Tony & Co won 8.40pm last night and dampened the season premiere of Seven’s Downton Abbey.
Fat Tony & Co pulled in 1.379 million viewers to Nine last night with 1.236 million staying tuned to see the second episode, according to OzTam’s preliminary metro ratings.
The launch dampened the return of Downton Abbey which sat in second place at 8.40pm with 1.125 million viewers.
Nine’s drama also squashed Ten’s prime-time programming of The Graham Norton Show at 9.30pm and So You Think You Can Dance (378,000) which ran for two hours from 7.30pm.
So You Think You Can Dance has moved from 6.30pm to 7.30pm to move it out of direct competition with reality darlings My Kitchen Rules and The Block: Fans v Faves.
The shift has delivered the struggling program a small boost, as it is up on last Sunday’s result of 313,000 viewers.
With the news Ten’s only other top 20 overall program the network sat on a tiny primary share of just 6.4%. The result is a far cry on the Seven’s main channel result of 29.6% and Nine’s 26.4%.
My Kitchen Rules sat in second place overall last night with 1.730 million viewers compared to the 1.327 million who chose to watch Nine’s The Block: Fans v Faves.
Seven’s Sunday Night also appealed to more viewers than Nine’s 60 Minutes last night.
Sunday Night was the evening’s most watched program with 1.910 million viewers as an interview with INXS band-members wooed viewers on the back of Seven’s drama INXS: Never Tear Us Apart.
60 Minutes came in ninth overall with 926,000 viewers.
Seven won the night with a total 35.9% share of all viewers. Nine came in second on a combined 32.6%.
Ten was in fourth place on a total 13.1% behind the ABC’s 14.4%. ABC1 won 11.1%.
SBS sat on a total 3.9% with 3.2% going to SBS One.
