10’s decision to try and add some spice to the famous case of Azaria Chamberlain’s disappearance 40 years ago hasn’t overly excited viewers, last night’s doco – Lindy Chamberlain: The True Story – pulling just 365,000 viewers for the network.
Instead, Sunday night couch potatoes were more interested in slightly bad home renovation and slightly bad celebrity dancing with Nine’s The Block and Seven’s All New Monty the evening’s standouts.
The Block pulled 928,000 viewers according to OzTAM metro numbers, rising to 997,000 for the room reveal. While the All New Monty finale peaked at a neat 800,000.
But the biggest surprise of the night was arguably the 6pm news bulletins, with Nine beating arch-rival Seven for the first time in a long time.
Nine’s offering pulling 1.132 million to Seven’s 1.087 million. Again, these are OzTAM metro numbers.
That handed Nine a Sunday night win with 31.3 per cent of all the eyeballs (all channels). Seven took silver and 27.6 per cent. It was a dead heat for third, with both 10 and the ABC pulling 16.6 per cent, while the SBS had 7.8 per cent.
Nine’s 60 Minutes did 520,000, 10’s The Sunday Project had 379,000 and Seven’s Surviving The Crash managed 315,000.
The ABC’s Sunday ran thus: 7pm news (693,000), Grantchester (440,000), The Rise Of The Murdoch Dynasty (433,000) and Australia Remastered: Wild Australians (245,000).
