Look, we’d love to stop leading with the Olympics in the headline, but with these numbers, it’s hard not too.

The success of the Olympics is also leaving very little room for other programming to make its way onto the top 20 most watched programs.

That being said, though, the peak numbers for the Games are steadily decreasing.

Tuesday’s top performer was the night coverage, which had 1,192,000 viewers, a decreasing of 18,000 from Monday’s top.

The evening coverage had 1,128,000 while the late afternoon had 906,000 and the afternoon had 897,000. The mornin peaked at 604,000 viewers, late night had 572,000 and the evening feed had 373,000.

Highlights included Kaylee McKeown’s gold in the backstroke (and her iconic post race “F*ck Yeah!”), Owen Wright’s bronze in the surfing, and Jess Fox’s bronze in the canoe slalom.

On top overall, though, was Seven News again with 1,478,000 viewers. Nine News had 1,098,000 viewers, A Current Affair had 692,000 and ABC News had 669,000.

Otherwise in entertainment, 10’s Australian Survivor continued with steadily impressive numbers, peaking at 618,000. Also in entertainment was Nine’s Beauty and the Geek, which had 541,000 viewers.

The ABC also had 7.30 and Ms Represented with Annabel Crabbe at 517,000 and 469,000 respectively.

Nine had Hot Seat at 484,000 while 10 had The Project with 441,000 and 10 News First had 374,000 viewers.

Seven once again totally dominated in the daily share with 45.6 per cent. The Nine Network was next with 19.6 per cent, and Network 10 in third with 16.4 per cent.

Next was the ABC TV Network with 12.2 per cent of the share, followed by the SBS Network with 6.2 per cent.
