The Voice tests endurance, House Rules tops the slot.

Last night The Voice stretched on to nearly 3 hours, running nearly 30 minutes over its scheduled 2.5hrs.

The lengthy show helped Nine to a win in primary channel shares but Seven Network won Sunday in a tight battle with 31.4% then Nine 31.2%, TEN 16.8%, ABC 13.6% and SBS 7.0%.

Seven News (1.18m) was best for Seven then House Rules (1.12m) and Sunday Night (780,000). Air Crash Investigations drew 346,000.

Nine News was #1 with 1.23m for Nine then The Voice (947,000) and 60 Minutes (743,000) -two shows will need to be adjusted for overruns. Australian Crime Stories was 312,000.

MasterChef Australia (709,000) led for TEN then Modern Family (417,000 / 269,000), Bull (358,000), TEN Eyewitness News (350,000) and Family Feud (248,000). NCIS: New Orleans was 157,000.

OzTAM Overnights: Sunday 25 June 2017

    So frustrating. The last few weeks had 60 Mins listed as starting at 9.00 & it started at 9.30. So when I saw it listed for 9.30 I thought good they’ve listed it for 9.30. Then it doesn’t start till 10.00. So annoying when you’re recording something & have to add another half an hour in case shows run over. Ch 7 on Tues & Wed night is just as bad. Blindspot & Amazing Race usually started 20 or 30 mins late. How hard can it be to list shows for the actual time they will be on for?

  2. Watched a little of House rules last night and man it’s like a hell cheap version of the block but worse! Judges sound like they have no clue what the hell they are talking about compared to the block judges

    • Haven’t watched this years HR so I can’t comment on these judges, but I stopped watching TB 2 years ago as I found the judges annoying and inconsistent. They would enter some rooms with differing opinions but upon leaving would all end up in agreement. Then their scoring was quite often at odds with their comments. It also become obvious that a team would ‘win’ when they were either low on funds or hadn’t won a room.

    • I also stopped watching the Block because of the judges, mainly Shaynna. They developed likes/dislikes for the individual teams and then prejudged on that basis. Also pretentious design. Love House Rules and Laurence (the new judge) is laugh-out-loud.

  3. Another good result for SBS’s documentary-total viewers the same as their 2nd and 3rd programmes combined-again, folks wanting an intelligent alternative to reality rubbish.

      • Is it a crime for other channels to air movies regularly?

        9Go!, ONE, 7mate, Eleven, 9Gem & VICELAND all air movie(s) on some nights of the week.

        In 7flix’s defence, it airs 4 back-to-back movies on Friday and Saturday nights and rates quite well
        (e.g.) massive 4%+ share on Saturday.
