For the second week in a row, Nine and Seven drew for the win on Sunday night.
Both networks tied on 31.4%. But Nine’s primary channel was 24.2% to Seven’s 23.0%, meaning it was the latter’s multichannels that made up the difference.
Elsewhere ABC was 17.8%, TEN 14.9% and SBS 4.5%.
The Block was the night’s top show matching the 1.5m viewers it received a week ago, which is excellent retention. Next for Nine were Nine News (1.32m), 60 Minutes (1.06m) and Movie: Casino Royale (547,000).
Seven News (1.26m) led Seven then The X Factor (1.13m), Sunday Night (1.02m) and Castle (561,000 / 322,000).
Grand Designs Revisited (939,000) topped ABC. ANZAC Girls dipped from last week but was still strong at 875,000. ABC News (828,000), Compass (376,000) and the final episode for The Tunnel (351,000) followed.
TEN had a dreadful night, unable to rise above 500,000, again dominated by reruns. Modern Family was 481,000 / 376,000 then TEN Eyewitness News (428,000) a new Bondi Vet (393,000), Movie: Star Trek (377,000) and Bondi Rescue (290,000).
On SBS ONE it was Alexander’s Lost World (213,000), SBS World News (164,000) and The Curse of J. Edgar Hoover (153,000). A Masters of Sex replay was 68,000.
