Monday TV Wrap: Big Brother Wins Entertainment, But The Big Numbers Saved For News

As COVID-19 continues to make its way round Oz – commiserations with Perth and Peel – news-watching was on the up, according to OzTAM’s metro data.

Alas, no naked-deer-fear/Jesus’s-second-coming appearances interrupted the evening news, though.

Seven News had 1,222,000 viewers, an increase from Sunday’s already high figure of 1,201,000 viewers. Nine News also rated highly with 1,177,000 viewers. The rest of the top watched programs were solidly dominated by news: A Current Affair had 831,000 viewers, ABC News had 826,000 and 7.30 had 711,000.

For those looking for a reprieve from the news, Big Brother was top choice, scoring 667,000 viewers.

Next was 10’s Have You Been Paying Attention? with 659,000 viewers, down a quite significant 68,000 viewers from last week.

The Chase and Home and Away slid in after HYBPA? with 652,000 and 642,000 respectively.

MasterChef followed with 640,000 – up 9,000 from last week – while at the end of the primetime entertainment pack was Australian Ninja Warrior with 617,000 viewers, dropping 7,000 viewers from the same time last week.

Also on Nine was Hot Seat with 562,000 viewers, while for 10 The Project and 10 News First had 501,000 and 450,000 viewers respectively.

The rest of the night’s line-up was dominated by the ABC. Media Watch had 490,000 viewers, Four Corners had 471,000 and Courtney Act’s One Plus One had 372,000.

The Nine Network came out on top of the daily share with 27.3 per cent, followed by the Seven Network with 26.8 per cent. In third was Network 10 with 20.9 per cent, while the ABC TV Network had 17.6 per cent and the SBS Network had 7.4 per cent.
