There were hits and misses across Sunday night as Seven took out the first win of the week. It was the eve before a public holiday in Melbourne, which is often a sign that numbers are down.

Nine’s primetime shows charted across the magic million. Great Barrier Reef premiered to 1.17m followed by the return of Sixty Minutes (1.14m), plus Nine News (1.13m), and The Great Mint Swindle held at 1.07m.
Modern Family (872,000) topped TEN’s night then Homeland (810,000 / 705,000), New Girl (783,000). Young Talent Time is down to 610,000 and The Project was 365,000.
ABC News (806,000) ranked first on a low night for ABC1. Great Expectations was 667,000, Waking the Dead was 587,000, Fry’s Planet Word was 458,000, and Compass was 247,000.
Becoming Human was 261,000 for SBS ONE and Brave New World with Stephen Hawking was 256,000.
The Big Bang Theory (246,000) on GO! topped multichannels.
As Melbourne ends a long weekend tonight, numbers for tomorrow could be very high.
