TEN’s telemovie Mary: The Making of a Princess has drawn good numbers, with 929,000 viewers watching the show. It was the highest-rated entertainment title for Sunday and proved to be a good alternative to glum news.
It proved to be a somewhat unusual Sunday, without The Block and with some late-adjusted programming due to news events in Paris, plus Cricket. Seven pulled Beach Cops for a news special and a planned replay of 60 Minutes also replaced with a news special on Nine. Even ABC extended its news and starting times elsewhere. These are yet to be reflected in OzTAM results.
Nine network was 31.0% then Seven 26.1%, TEN 23.1%, ABC 13.5% and SBS 6.3%.
Nine News (1.17m) topped the night for Nine followed by Test Cricket (1.1m/ 879,000) and 60 Minutes (974,000). The Truth About Pain Relief was just 363,000.
Seven News (1.15m) led for Seven then Sunday Night (1.09m), Beach Cops (872,000) and Quantico (477,000). Castle was just 296,000.
