Sunday TV Wrap: 10’s Amazing Race & The ABC’s Super Cute Quoll Farm See Off The Tennis

The Amazing Race was the nation’s most viewed entertainment show of the night, just beating the ABC’s Quoll Farm, a documentary about a family of elusive Tasmanian marsupials.

According to OzTAM metro numbers, Channel 10’s Amazing Race saw its best viewership of the season with 564,000 viewers, making it the fourth most-watched show of the night, and the best-performing entertainment show.

It was beaten by Seven News, which topped the charts at 988,000 viewers, followed by Nine News with 916,000 viewers and ABC News with 702,000.

After the Amazing Race came the ABC’s Quoll Farm, a documentary about one filmmaker’s year spent on an abandoned farm in Tasmania, filming a family of eastern quolls. Eastern quolls are only found in Tasmania and are rarely seen by humans. Clearly, the adorable marsupials were popular as the documentary saw 530,000 viewers.

Nine’s Australian Open Pre-Match has 346,000 viewers and peaked at 518,000 viewers for the night session, where Novak Djokovic beat Milos Raconic in four sets.
