Though the tennis saw a decrease in viewers from Monday night, with a peak of 668,000, sporting legend Serena Williams’ triumph over Simona Halep pushed Nine over the line.
On Thursday, Williams will face off against Naomi Osaka, who has never lost a final four match at the Australian Open. Novak Djokovic also beat German player Alexander Zverev.
For the second night running, Nine’s tennis coverage was the best performing television outside of the news.
That being said, it was a strong night for news coverage. Seven News had 1,057,000 viewers, while Nine News had 899,000, and ABC News had 696, 000 according to Oztam’s overnight data.
Viewership for some entertainment shows increased from Monday, with Seven’s The Chase topping the category with 584,000 viewers followed by Channel 10’s The Amazing Race Australia with 554, 000.
Seven’s other entertainment shows, however, took something of a hit. Home and Away peaked at 526,000 viewers, while Holey Moley slid in numbers again to 436,000.
Medical drama The Good Doctor had 300,000 viewers.
The ABC’s Foreign Correspondent had 398, 000 viewers, while Catalyst rounded out the top twenty most-watched shows with 296,000 viewers.
Channel 10’s The Project had 496,000 viewers while 10 News First had 363,000. Once again, SBS’s two best performing shows were SBS World News and 24 Hours in Emergency, with World News receiving 163,000 viewers while 24 Hours had 156,000.
Nine executives must be feeling pretty pleased this morning, as they scored thirty-two per cent of the overnight viewer share (all channels), followed by the Seven Network with twenty-four per cent and the 10 Network, who rounded out the top three with eighteen per cent. The ABC had fifteen per cent of the overnight share, while SBS had eight per cent.
