Nine’s highly-anticipated Love Island debuted to rather underwhelming numbers last night, although network chiefs had suggested it might take a while for it to find an audience.

The raunch-fest could only muster 155,000 viewers on Nine’s catch-up channel 9GO according to the overnight OzTAM numbers. However, a 10pm replay of the show on free-to-air boasted 249,000.

However, it was better news all round for Nine who won Sunday night with 32.1 per cent of the audience share. Seven was second with 27.8 per cent, Ten was third with 19.5 per cent, the ABC had 14.5 per cent and SBS pulled 6.1 per cent.

In the battle of the reality shows, Ten’s MasterChef won the bragging rights with 903,000. Nine’s The Voice had 896,000 and Seven’s House Rules pulled 795,000.

Seven’s 6pm news bulletin (1.18 million) was the most watched show of Sunday night and saw off rival Nine’s edition that had 1.11 million. Nine’s 60 Minutes did well with 721,000, while Seven’s Sunday Night lead story into Jacqui Lambie’s love live could only arouse 422,000.

Over at Ten, The Sunday Project couldn’t break the half-million mark, pulling 479,000.

The ABC’s night went thus: ABC News (739,000), Attenborough And The Empire Of The Ants (541,000), Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence (469,000), Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery (256,000), a replay of the The Checkout (175,000) and Janis: Little Girl Blue (138,000).

The SBS’ best was Britain’s Pompeii that pulled in 225,000 hungry history watchers.
