What was TEN thinking?
From 7:30pm last night the network fell below SBS with a 2006 movie that drew a dismal 140,000 viewers. Even SBS repeats on Rome and Easter Island managed higher than that. Two weeks ago it oddly wrapped up All Aussie Adventures with a double episode, leaving nothing to replace it.
The Block easily led proceedings with 1.26m viewers followed by ABC News, Sunday Night, and Joanna Lumley’s Silk Road (from 7:40pm).
From around 8:30pm Nine remained in front with 60 Minutes on 715,000, ahead of The Story of the Royals on 493,000 (from 8pm). Rake followed at 432,000.
Overall, TEN barely scraped past the 400,000 mark last night with a Serena Williams interview on The Sunday Project. Rome’s Invisible City was highest for SBS.
Nine network won Sunday with 34.1% then Seven 30.3%, ABC 17.7%, TEN 10.9% and SBS 6.8%.
The Block was #1 for Nine with 1.26m then Nine News (937,000), 60 Minutes (715,000) and City of Evil (364,000).
Seven News (1.02m) was best for Seven then Sunday Night (696,000), The Story of the Royals (493,000) and Crime Investigation Australia (195,000).
ABC News (705,000), Joanna Lumley’s Silk Road (576,000), Rake (432,000), and Vera (268,000) comprised ABC’s night.
The Sunday Project (404,000 / 209,000) was the best TEN could muster then TEN Eyewitness News (278,000), Bondi Rescue (197,000), movie: Happy Feet (140,000) and When Corden Met Paul McCartney (87,000).
On SBS it was Rome’s Invisible City (180,000), Easter Island: The Truth Revealed (148,000) and SBS World News (144,000),.
7TWO’s Border Security (part of a 12 episode marathon) was indeed the top ranking multichannel show at 177,000.
