Nine definitely had a bumper Sunday with MAFS pulling 1.485 million and 60 Minutes even topping MKR’s numbers.
Nine’s stalwart current affairs hour – which had a bit of a murder theme – managed 842,000 last night according to OzTAM metro numbers. MKR was still up and posted a neat 800,000.
On the back of those numbers, it was hardly surprising that Nine enjoyed an impressive audience share. It took home 39 per cent of last night’s eyeballs. Seven had 28.4 per cent, the ABC was third and 15.6 per cent. 10’s Sunday night headaches won’t go away – it managed just 10.1 per cent. SBS had 6.9 per cent.
Other standouts for Nine included its 6pm news (971,000), Australian Crime Stores (336,000) and its NRL coverage of the Bulldogs-Tigers match that managed 262,000.
Seven’s best was its 6pm news with an impressive 1.109 million, followed by Sunday Night (472,000) and its AFL coverage (405,000).
For 10, its best was The Sunday Project (293,000), Chris and Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway (218,000) and Hughesy We Have A Problem (219,000).
The ABC’s evening ran thus: 7pm news (993,000), Restoration Australia (752,000) and the Melbourne Comedy Festival (526,000).
Over at the SBS, effluent continues to be a ratings drawcard with The Five Billion Pound Sewer pulling 229,000.
