Seven has big wraps on its new foodie series Plate Of Origin, but viewers were left a little cold by last night’s debut.
The show, starring MasterChef outcasts Matt Preston and Gary Mehigan and Seven regular Manu Feidel, pulled just 667,000 viewers last night according to OzTAM metro numbers.
Instead of dining out on something new, viewers stuck by the tried and true. Nine’s The Block had 943,000 viewers, rising to 1.016 million for the room reveal.
Nine won Sunday with 30.1 per cent of all of the evening’s eyeballs (all channels). Seven did 26.2 per cent and the ABC was impressive with 22.1 per cent. 10 continues to struggle on Sundays, it could only muster 12.7 per cent, while SBS had 8.9 per cent.
Not that the free-to-airs are having it all their own way on a Sunday. The ABC continues to post some impressive numbers with its drama line-up leading the way.
The ABC’s 7pm news posted 837,000 and was the fifth most watched show of the night.
Drama series Vera did 713,000 for Aunty, while Shetland pulled 658,000 and Australia Remastered: Wild Australians had 276,000.
Two of the ABC’s Sunday morning shows – Insiders (327,000) and Landline (293,000) – were both in Sunday’s 20 most-watched programs.
In the battle of the 6pm news bulletins, Seven had 1.168 million viewers and Nine’s version did 1.029 million.
60 Minutes pulled 456,000 for Nine, while Seven’s Crime Investigation Australia: Most Infamous did 369,000.
10’s best performers were The Sunday Project (362,000) and 10 News First (288,000).
In the battle of the footy codes, Seven’s AFL posted 364,000 and Nine’s NRL did 235,000.
