ABC strong on Monday, Nine pips Seven.

Ratings: Seven's multichannels make for a close race in network share, but Nine fell over the line.


While Nine was a comfortable winner in primary channels last night, it was a closer finish in network shares, thanks to the strength of Seven’s multichannels.

Meanwhile a strong night for ABC, especially with ABC News and Australian Story, saw TEN’s Spelling Bee slip to fourth place last night. Q & A‘s also marriage equality debate lit up social media.

  1. There was nothing on free to air in the evening of interest so the only reason to turn the tv on was to catch up on last nights bones which was on far too late on Sunday night and is not available on catch up. After that had a quick flick around the fetch channels not expecting much and found a random episode of house hunters on hgtv channel and watched that for 30 mins live. Couldn’t find anything else worth watching on fetch so rather than turn the tv off fired up the fetch youtube app and watched a podcast.

  2. It’s a shame Spelling Bee hasn’t done better but as many others suggested would have been better suited to maybe 630 on Sunday or definitely shorter doses .cut out the to camera bits sans Masterchef
