Monday TV Wrap: Meghan And Harry’s Oprah Interview Resoundingly Wins The Night For 10

Network 10’s execs will be privately sending a prayer of thanks to Oprah Winfrey as they won the night with a share of twenty nine per cent.

According to OzTAM, it was watched by 1.37 million people, showing there’s nothing more fascinating – even to Australians – than British royal family drama.

The interview was, to use a cliche, explosive.

Australia watched the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reveal that: an unnamed family member wanted to know ‘how dark’ baby Archie would be, Prince Charles stopped accepting Harry’s calls, that Kate, Duchess of Cornwall, made Meghan cry before her wedding and not the other way around (as was reported by the UK tabloids), that their new baby will be a girl, that Meghan struggled significantly with her mental health while living in the palace, and – perhaps most bizzarely – that the couple stayed with American comedian Tyler Perry after their security detail was removed.

Perry is perhaps best know for his character Madea, an elderly woman.

Phew. One can only imagine Princess Diana watching down on them, stiff drink in hand.

In a pleasant halo effect (rather than a Mandala effect), viewership was high across channels.

Seven News had 1,024,000 viewers while Nine News had 998,000 and A Current Affair had 839,000.

MAFS had a solid night at 804,000 – in fairness, it’s hard for most couples to compete with a royal one.

The rest of Nine’s night saw Hot Seat score 453,000 viewers and Under Investigation had 438,000.

ABC’s evening had ABC News at 688,000, then Four Corners with 624,000 viewers. 7.30 had 582,000 and Media Watch had 551,000.

Australian Story scored 510,000.

Seven’s night had steady stalwarts Home And Away at 545,000 viewers and The Chase at 529,000.

The rest of 10’s evening saw The Project received 589,000 viewers, while 10 News First had 403,000 and Hughesy, We Have A Problem had 354,000.

The SBS’s best performer was The Secret Life Of Lighthouses with 168,000 viewers.

After 10 (all channels) secured their twenty-nine per cent of the daily share, Nine (all channels) had twenty-six per cent and Seven (all channels) had twenty per cent.

The ABC Network had sixteen per cent and the SBS Network had five per cent.
