Monday TV Wrap: First Night Of The Aus Open Serves Up 486,000 Viewers

It feels like the players have been in quarantine forever, but the Australian Open managed to kick-off last night on Nine pulling an okayish 486,000 metro viewers according to OzTAM metro numbers.

Even with hometown favourite Kyrgios on centre court (which peaked at 605,000 metro viewers), numbers were still down 24.3 per cent on last year’s day one action.

Viewers preferred 10’s The Amazing Race (558,000), which even managed to beat Seven’s spluttering Holey Moley (528,000).

Still, it didn’t stop Seven winning Monday with 28.7 per cent of all of last night’s eyeballs. Nine did 26.2 per cent, 10 had 19.9 per cent, the ABC had 18.2 per cent and SBS managed 7.1 per cent.

Seven’s 6pm news was the most watched show of the evening with 1.051 million. Nine’s news did 846,000 and the ABC’s 7pm bulletin had 719,000.

Interestingly, Home And Away was the day’s most watched entertainment show of the day with 587,000. Seven’s The Chase did 536,000 and 9-1-1 had 325,000.

10’s other standouts were The Project (522,000) and 10 News First (371,000).

The ABC’s evening ran this way: 7pm news (719,000), 7.30 (533,000), Four Corners (514,000), Media Watch (489,000), Australian Story (443,000), The Pacific: In The Wake Of Captain Cook With Sam Neill (326,000).
