ABC primary channel beats Seven on Monday
Ratings: ABC shows lift on Monday as Seven weathers an uneven performance, grateful for its multichannels.
Led by Four Corners battling it out with Have You Been Paying Attention last night, ABC’s primary channel scored second place last night, relegating Seven to third.
HYBPA? won its timeslot with 782,000 but a Four Corners look into the NBN was narrowly behind at 774,000. Seven’s Manhunt trailed behind Menendez Murders with a disappointing 243,000.
The Block may have topped the night on 1.17m but it was down due to a special looking at best rooms over previous seasons. 7:30, All Star Family Feud and The Grand Tour followed.
There was better news for Seven with Seven News and The Chase winning slots, as did Nine’s Current Affair. Seven’s multichannels helped its overall network performance and at least new titles are in play next week.
A Q&A debate on marriage equality won its slot with 617,000 up on last week’s 541,000.
Nine network won Monday with 28.5% then Seven 25.0%, ABC 21.1%, TEN 18.4% and SBS 7.0%.
