TEN’s Bathurst 1000 coverage pulled a big audience on Sunday, stretching to 6:45pm and impacting News coverage on Nine & Seven.
TEN has confirmed 1.02m watched the Podium following 905,000 for the Race, in metro audiences. That sent Nine & Seven news numbers under the 900,000 mark, but the event was lower than 2016’s 1.41m (podium).
The Block still topped the night at a cool 1.57m, still topping the demos, way in front of Little Big Shots for Seven on 881,000.
60 Minutes pulled a timeslot win with 1.09m viewers ahead of Sunday Night (albeit in an earlier timeslot), The Doctor Blake Mysteries and Wake in Fright. TEN’s miniseries drew mostly good reviews and a lot of social media but an adjusted figure of 386,000 is disappointing and well down on the Brock miniseries a year ago, at 828,000.
Nine network won Sunday with 36.4% then Seven 22.9%, TEN 17.7%, ABC 17.4% and SBS 5.6%.
The Block was #1 with 1.57m for Nine then 60 Minutes (1.09m), Nine News (824,000) and P!nk Live in Australia (444,000).
Little Big Shots (881,000) was best for Seven then Seven News (886,000), Sunday Night (637,000) and Heists That Shook the World (259,000).
Bathurst 1000 topped TEN’s night, running overtime but confirmed as 1.02m for the Podium following 905,000 for the Race. The Sunday Project is confirmed at 459,000 / 422,000 and Wake in Fright at just 386,000. Family Feud did not run.
Doc Martin (832,000), ABC News (828,000), The Doctor Blake Mysteries (793,000), Fearless (290,000) and Classic Countdown (246,000) comprised ABC’s night.
On SBS it was The Greeks (158,000), Robert Redford’s The West (157,000) and SBS World News (154,000).
7TWO’s Border Security (167,000) checked the multichannels.
