Nostalgia lifts SBS but Nine wins Sunday
Ratings: Reality TV and News dominate Sunday but there was the odd bright spot in entertainment too.
But ABC will be looking with some concern to its numbers for critically-acclaimed drama The Code.
Nine network won another Sunday with a share of 33.2% then Seven 29.3%, TEN 16.1%, ABC 14.2% and SBS 7.2%.
The Block was out in front with 1.55m for Nine then Nine News (1.15m), 60 Minutes (1.03m) and Big Brother (558,000).
Seven News (1.15m) was best for Seven followed by The X Factor (1.11m), Sunday Night (1.03m), Castle (517,000 / 475,000).
Scorpion (597,000) did relatively good business for TEN doubling its soft lead-in of Bondi Rescue (299,000). TEN Eyewitness News was next at 507,000. Concerningly a new Modern Family was 434,000 -audiences may have assumed it was another rerun. A repeat followed with 430,000 and the movie Mission Impossible (394,000) was last in its slot.
ABC News was 767,000 but The Code has slipped to 584,000 in its second outing. Doctor Who was 569,000 / 101,000. Compass was 331,000 and Mad Dogs was 306,000.
SBS had a good night in with its Monty Python Live special (423,000) pipping TEN’s movie rerun. Treasures of Ancient Egypt was next at 313,000, SBS World News (204,000), and Who Do You Think You Are? (73,000) followed.
7TWO’s Escape from the Country (258,000) topped multichannels.
