Without much Reality on offer in the timeslot, SBS performed well at 7:30. There are more enticing names to come this season.
But the night was won by the Nine network with a share of 30.6% then Seven 27.4%, TEN 20.1%, ABC 14.3% and SBS 7.7%.
Nine News (1.17m / 1.13m) was best for Nine then Hamish and Andy (967,000), A Current Affair (964,000), Big Bang (796,000 / 730,000), Hot Seat (642,000) and Movie: What to Expect When You’re Expecting (353,000).
Seven News was #1 for the night at 1.19m / 1.02m, then Winners and Losers (867,000), Home and Away (860,000), Highway Patrol (768,000), Million Dollar Minute (617,000) and Chicago Fire (391,000).
MasterChef Australia won its timeslot at 1.1m for TEN followed by TEN Eyewitness News (674,000), The Project (675,000 / 406,000) and Under the Dome (546,000). Modern Family was 377,000 and NCIS: LA was 334,000.
ABC News (869,000) was well ahead of other ABC1 titles: 7:30 (657,000), Foreign Correspondent (507,000), QI (467,000), At the Movies (320,000) and Art + Soul which bombed at 244,000. Tuesday’s 8:30 slot for ABC1 is in need of a regular first run show.
Who Do You Think You Are? (503,000) easily led SBS ONE then Insight (222,000), Tour de France (169,000), SBS World News (161,000) and Dateline (131,000).
Midsomer Murders on GEM topped multichannels at 325,000 but 7mate’s Bogan Hunters was right behind on 325,000 while Kinne was trending on Twitter to much acclaim and ranked with 266,000.
The Morning Show: 157,000
Studio 10: 71,000
