Sunday TV Wrap: Seven Nets More Than Two Million For Olympics

With Australia celebrating its best ever gold medal Olympics day, it’s probably not surprising that the Seven Network secured a massive proportion of Sunday’s TV viewership.

Highlights from the Games themselves obviously including Emma McKeown, who snared gold in the women’s freestyle and was part of the gold-winning relay too, while Matt Wearn won gold in the sailing and Logan Martin won gold in the Games’ first ever freestyle BMX comp.

It’s almost enough to make you feel patriotic – especially if you’re a Seven executive.

The Olympics numbers went as follows: the night coverage had 2,070,000 viewers, while the afternoon had 1,524,000, evening had 1,519,000, late afternoon had 1,259,000, late night had 1,181,000 and morning had 842,000. Phew.

Seven News also performed well with 1,742,000 viewers, while Nine News had 991,000.
