Seven still the one on Monday
Ratings: Nine's 80s theme night won its slot but it wasn't enough to stop Seven from taking line honours.
Seven had a good run last night winning early evening from 6 – 8:30pm until Nine’s cleverly promoted 80s night took the lead. It wasn’t quite enough for Nine to claim it was “Still the One” but re-working a National Geographic doco and cross-promoting it worked well (loved those old idents!).
Seven network was 30.6% then Nine 25.9%, ABC 20.6%, TEN 17.8% and SBS 5.2%.
The X Factor topped the night with 1.43m viewers then Seven News (1.3m), Today Tonight (1.17m), Home and Away (1.00m), Mr. Selfridge (777,000), Deal or No Deal (488,000), Mrs. Brown’s Boys (342,000) and Talking Footy (341,000 in 3 cities).
Nine News (1.26m) was best for Nine then A Current Affair (1.03m), The Amazing 80s won its slot on 894,000, Big Brother (887,000), Hot Seat (674,000), Big Bang (526,000 / 282,000) and Footy Classified (356,000 in 3 cities).
ABC News (978,000) led ABC1 followed by Australian Story (847,000), 7:30 (785,000), Media Watch (707,000), Q & A (705,000), Four Corners (701,000) and Lateline (407,000).
