The annual Bathurst Ford VS Holden rev-a-thon is still proving as popular as ever after 10’s exhaustive nine-hour coverage again proved a winner with V8 fans yesterday.
Ford took the chequered flag and the bragging rights, with an impressive 1.18 million viewers tuning in to watch – the late running – podium presentation according to OzTAM metro numbers.
Some 1.083 million hung about for the post-race wrap while the race itself reached a peak of 795,000. A further 266,000 watched on Foxtel.
Sadly for 10, the race didn’t exactly translate into overall audience share – it mustered just 18.2 per cent of all of yesterday’s eyeballs (all channels). Nine won with 32.8 per cent and Seven snared second with 24.5 per cent. The ABC did 15.5 per cent and SBS had a good night with a neat nine per cent thanks to a repeat of Concorde (216,000).
Seven’s best was its 6pm news with 817,000, while it found a winner with ABBA Forever (671,0000), the sixth most watched show of the night. However, Sunday Night isn’t exactly pulling the crowds in its final hours – it managed just 422,000.
Nine did well with The Block (1.136 million), its 6pm news (641,000) and 60 Minutes (703,000).
The ABC’s evening ran thus: 7pm news (591,000), Total Control (536,000) and Grand Designs: The Street (424,000).
