The Block, 60 Minutes, Formula One draw big audiences.
Ratings: Everyone's a winner as Nine, TEN and Seven find some good news in Sunday ratings.
The Block and 60 Minutes were #1 and #2 for Nine.
TEN’s FIA Formula One scored a combined audience of 1.35m across TEN and ONE, it’s best numbers in a long time.
And Seven won the night in network shares.
Seven network share was 33.0% then Nine 31.4%, TEN 16.9%, ABC 14.0% and SBS 4.7%.
My Kitchen Rules did not air in Adelaide due to AFL but still topped Seven’s night at 1.32m. Next were Seven News (1.18m), Sunday Night (1.06m), Downton Abbey (957,000 -also off in Adelaide) and Castle (353,000).
The Block topped the night at 1.57m for Nine followed by 60 Minutes (1.48m), Nine News (1.18m), Fat Tony and Co. (1.12m) and Person of Interest (597,000 / 252,000).
The Australian FIA Formula One scored an impressive (1.35m) across TEN / ONE for the Race, a lift on 2013’s 1.23m. But it had no flow-on effect for the network. Have You Been Paying Attention? which followed plummeted to 276,000 viewers and would probably draw a better audience for the network in a late-night slot. The movie Thor climbed back to 521,000 viewers with The Graham Norton Show at 269,000.
ABC News (941,000) topped ABC1 then Rake (690,000), Richard Hammond Builds a Planet (566,000), Compass (368,000). Waking the Dead is struggling at 9:30 with 211,000.
The Vikings (290,000) was best for SBS ONE then World News Australia (204,000), I Human (163,000) and There’s Something About Patrick (91,000).
Because ONE merged its FIA numbers with TEN, the highest rated show on multichannels was Sesame Street at 257,000.
