Nine claimed the most watched show of the night (its 6pm news bulletin) and best rating reality show (Celebrity Apprentice), however, it wasn’t enough to give it a Sunday night win, with arch-rival Seven pinching the crown. All numbers are OzTAm metro.
Seven won the night – namely thanks to its AFL coverage – taking 29.8 per cent of all of last night’s eyeballs (all channels).
Nine wasn’t far behind with a neat 27 per cent, 10 took third and 18.8 per cent, the ABC did 16.8 and SBS had 7.6 per cent.
Again, Nine’s 6pm news was the most watched show of the evening with 951,000. Seven’s bulletin racking-up 939,000.
Nine’s Celebrity Apprentice had 636,000, rising to 718,000 for the evening’s nightly firing.
All that left 10’s MasterChef with 558,000.
It was Seven’s AFL coverage of the West Coast-Richmond match (won by the Eagles 85-81) that snuck the network over the line. The game proper pulling 570,00 and the pre-match doing 289,000.
Also at Seven, its News Spotlight: Saving Candace managed 439,000.
Other doers for Nine included 60 Minutes (480,000) and its NRL coverage of the Eels-Tigers game (won by the Eels 40-12) that did 254,000.
10’s notables included The Sunday Project (403,000), FBI (269,000) and 10 News First (250,000).
