Sunday night was a two-way tussle, due largely to the fact that TEN tanked -with its primary channel beaten by ABC1.
Seven won from 6pm to 8:30pm with Seven News (1.44m), Sunday Night (1.31m) and Wild Boys (1.22m). The drama has dropped from its debut of 1.67m but if it can settle at around 1.2m Seven will have enough reason to be happy. Bones was a healthy 1.26m.
Underbelly: Razor again won its slot on 1.4m. It has also dropped from its premiere but is holding up well, almost matching its 1.46m from last week. Other shows were Nine News (1.18m), RBT (928,000) and 60 Minutes (1.17m).
TEN’s best for the night was the season final of Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation on 855,000. The Renovators managed 614,000. But TEN’s idea to run a 1986 Aliens movie at 8:30 on a Sunday got the figures it deserved: 295,000. Is that some sort of primetime record? Dreadful….
Grand Designs Revisited (968,000) was best for ABC1 with Mrs Carey’s Concert on 515,000.
Best for SBS was Planet Egypt on 257,000.
The Good Life at 5:30pm was tops on multichannels with 379,000.
Seven won the night.
