Seven enjoyed a stellar night last night and it was all thanks to its Brownlow Medal coverage that saw Hawthorn’s Tom Mitchell crowned the AFL’s best and fairest for the 2018 season.

Coverage of the actual medal event pulled an impressive 895,000 for the network, while the earlier red carpet arrivals also did well with 633,000 viewers tuning-in to see the frocks.

Seven won Monday with a commanding 35.8 per cent. Nine had to settle with 24.7 per cent. It was neck-and-neck between Ten and the ABC for third, Ten holding out with 17.4 per cent to the Guthrie-free ABC’s 16.1 per cent. SBS endured a neat six per cent.

Seven’s 6pm news bulletin was the most watched show of the night with 1.11 million viewers and The Chase was the network’s other standout with 895,000. Home And Away was strangely down, managing 523,000.

Interestingly, Nine’s The Block (962,000) held up well considering the number of viewers that were watching the AFL’s best and fairest on a competitor channel.

Nine’s other Monday night highlights included its 6pm news coverage with 965,000, ACA pulled 832,000, Hot Seat with 506,000, while Doctor Doctor was disappointing with 315,000.

Ten’s best was Have You Been Paying Attention? with stand-in host Chris Brown that did well with 638,000, Australian Survivor pulled 627,000 and The Project with 553,000.

The ABC’s night of current affairs ran thus: 7pm news (702,000), Australian Story (667,000), Four Corners (623,000), 7.30 (617,000), Media Watch (567,000) and David Attenborough’s Flying Monsters (245,000).

Best for the SBS was 24 Hours In Emergency with 190,000.
