Even without The Block, no prizes for X Factor.
Reality: Pipped by ABC News & Grand Designs, X Factor's fate seems sealed. SBS is up, TEN has a rough night.
With Cricket in play and no episode of The Block, Seven’s X Factor was the only Reality title in play.
While it managed a slight increase from 676,000 to 700,000 it was beaten by ABC News (826,000) and Grand Designs (718,000). Seven can at least take comfort that it trimmed this season severely, but its fate appears sealed.
Nine’s staggered cricket broadcast managed an average of 753,000 for the third session.
Amended: But it wasn’t all bad for Seven with Sunday Night beating 60 Minutes, head to head in 2 markets, and Seven News ahead of Nine’s.
There was no good news for TEN, unable to rise above a Modern Family episode of 450,000. Their Taken 2 movie was pushed into 5th place behind SBS with a Clinton v Trump special capping off a strong night for the public broadcaster.
Seven won Sunday with 30.2% then Nine 29.3%, ABC 16.7%, TEN 14.5% and SBS 9.3%.
Seven News was #1 with 1.14m then The X Factor 700,000, Sunday Night (656,000) and Afghanistan: The Australian Story (428,000).
Nine News (1.01m) led for Nine then First Test: Australia v South Africa (753,000 / 704,000 / 533,000), and 60 Minutes (648,000). The Mad World of Donald Trump was just 210,000.
ABC News won its slot with 826,000 for ABC then Grand Designs (718,000), Poldark (493,000) and Jamaica Inn (302,000). Compass was 214,000.
It was a bad night at TEN with Modern Family (450,000 / 412,000), All Star Family Feud (366,000), TEN Eyewitness News (339,000) and Movie: Taken 2 (292,000).
SBS was strong with Clinton v Trump: The Choice 2016 (387,000) then The Great Human Odyssey (210,000) and SBS World News (176,000).
GO!’s movie How to Train Your Dragon (287,000) topped multichannels.
