Seven wins quiet Sunday


There’s still a week to go before summer non-ratings hit, but with many programmes having wound down it’s biting already.

Seven led the early timeslots last night with Seven News and Sunday Night before 60 Minutes took the lead at 8pm.

The X Factor‘s penultimate episode proved to be the top entertainment show at 665,000, lifting on last Sunday when it was hard up against The Block finale.

Grand Designs was on par with last week despite a later start following a Foreign Correspondent special on Donald Trump, and Poldark was up.

Modern Family was also up for TEN but its Noah movie failed.

Seven Network won Sunday with 32.9% then Nine 29.2%, ABC 16.9%, TEN 14.6% and SBS 6.4%.

    can i ask why no performances of the winner’s single on x factor happened last night?? usually the episode before the grand final they showcase their winner’s single. none in site. how do i know what song they’ll release if they win.

  2. Xfactor was a great episode last nite , they all rose to the occasion , especially valado .. Channel 7 stuffed it up by making it a fast season , everyone I no gave up on it because I don’t get to see the grow in performances properly , defeats the purpose of the show . Ashame because it was my favourite judging panel , minus guy lol

  3. Considering it is still ratings season, this is one of the most dismal Sunday nights in memory of end of year results, yet from your article on the interview on Planet Earth 2 with 9 CEO Hugh Marks last week, “But the great bulk of the population are still watching Live linear television. So we might lose some people.” I think the TV networks are losing more people than they care to admit!

  4. X Factor may have improved but 665K can only be view as a complete disaster for the Grand Final performance episode of such an expensive show. I’d be surprised if the Final episode tonight cracks a million.
