With none of the free-to-airs having a heavy hitting Sunday night show, it was time for the ABC to shine according to overnight OzTAM numbers.

The ABC’s primary channel was the most-viewed channel last night before the catch-up channels were added in.

Seven won the night with 30.8 per cent audience share. The ABC missed out on second spot by a whisker with Nine snaring 25.6 per cent to the ABC’s 25.3 per cent. Ten pulled a miserable 12.1 per cent and SBS managed 6.3 per cent.

It was the ABC’s dramas doing the business for the public broadcaster. Doc Martin was the most watched show of the night with 978,000, while The Doctor Blake Mysteries pulled in 891,000. Its 7pm news bulletin had 858,000.

Nine’s Family Food Fight continues to disappoint and it could only only muster 570,000 food fans. While Seven’s The Wall continues to bleed audiences, pulling 669,000.

Seven’s news (901,000) claimed bragging rights over rival Nine (862,000), but Nine pulled one back with 60 Minutes (667,000) beating Seven’s Sunday Night (589,000).

Nine’s movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens was its best performing of the seven films it’s played in succession, managing 416,000.

No one appeared to be watching Ten whatsoever, with The Project its best with 345,000 and Bull with 269,000. Over at SBS, Secrets of the Pyramids pulled a mummifying 243,000.
