Queen doco outranks reality on a soft Sunday
Ratings: Queen doco tops entertainments shows, Seven News tops the night, trouble for Game of Games.
As summer nears, a 7 year old repeat documentary was the top-ranking entertainment show on a low-performing Sunday.
But perhaps it is indicative that many viewers still prefer something intellectual over reality offerings.
Nine’s Queen: Days of our Lives drew in 691,000 viewers from 8pm ahead of Don’t Stop the Music on 465,000 and Sunday Night‘s 432,000. An SBS doco on Pompeii followed relegating Game of Games to fifth place on just 229,000.
