The Sunday reality face-off was a resounding success for Seven, with the first of The X Factor’s live show’s taking bragging rights over Australia’s Got Talent on Nine.
Saturday’s rain-out also scared off the majority of Ashes viewers, with Gem pulling just 240,000 for the first session of what turned out to be a thrilling final day’s play in the UK.
That dip allowed Seven to take the network spoils with a 34.8% share, ahead of Nine’s 30.5%, while Ten could only muster 15.9%.
The X Factor was most-watched show (1.522m) dominating in every demographic, while AGT was fifth overall (1.183m) according to the OzTam Overnight figures.
Underbelly: Squizzy was tenth with 782,000, and the first of Ten’s finals week MasterChef shows pulled in 716,000, while BBC drama Ripper Street languished in 18th with 472,000 viewers.
