Nine’s returning The Voice has debuted to 1.012 million viewers last night according to OzTAM metro numbers.
However, it wasn’t enough to get Nine over the line for audience share. Seven stole the night with 29.9 per cent of the eyeballs. Nine was left lamenting “what if” with 29 per cent. 10 took third and 17.9 per cent, the ABC had 14.9 per cent and SBS did well with 9.2 per cent thanks to its Eurovision coverage, reaching a high of 240,000 for the final.
Seven’s House Rules had its best night of 2019 with 790,000. While 10’s chief entertainment offering – MasterChef – could only muster 630,000.
In the battle of the 6pm news, Seven (1.170 million) beat Nine (1.063 million). Both enjoying a post ScoMo lift.
Interestingly, Seven’s Sunday Night (613,000) had a rare win over Nine’s 60 Minutes (575,000) and highlights the fickle nature of that category.
In the battle of the footy, Seven’s AFL coverage (340,000) beat Nine’s NRL (300,000).
MasterChef aside, 10’s other highlights were The Sunday Project (419,000) and 10 News First (302,000).
10 Bold’s coverage of the A-League grand final reached 215,000 for the game and 162,000 for the presentation.
The ABC’s night ran thus: 7pm news (740,000), Agatha Christie’s ABC Murders (455,000) and Harrow (431,000). While Aunty’s Sunday morning current affairs show, Insiders, had a post-election lift to 436,000.
