The week begins with a low-rating Sunday as Seven News tops the night on 1.32m ahead of Nine News 1.1m and TEN Evening News off the map with just 308,000 (why did they abandon 5pm -Nine now has 514,000 viewers for its 5pm News with next to no promotion).
In entertainment shows it was a quiet night. The best that could be managed was The Force on 1.2m. which partnered with Border Security on 1.07m.
While Modern Family was 1.08m for TEN, Bondi Rescue dipped to 874,000. 60 Minutes was in between both with 950,000. Out Of The Ashes on ABC1 was 572,000.
At least The Biggest Loser is having a pretty good run so far with 1.04m viewers. Winning its timeslot in its sixth season is no small feat -even more so when you look at its dire News lead-in. It bettered Sunday Night‘s 941,000 and Customs (931,000) / Send in the Dogs Australia (763,000).
At 8:30pm viewers were seemingly on autopilot with Bones (1m), Agatha Christie’s Poirot (883,00), Hawaii Five-O (827,000) and The Mentalist (809,000).
Castle won at 9:30pm with 836,000.
A valid question is now whether Nine should have slated Underbelly to Sunday night instead of tonight. We’ll know by tomorrow.
Best for SBS was America: The Story Of The U.S. on 289,000 with the return of Dateline on just 149,000.
GO!’s Big Bang Theory Go! was the best multichannel show on 309,000.
Seven won the night.
