Nine drew a whopping 42.7% share on Sunday night thanks to its Reality + Sport offering across multiple channels.

The Ashes Series pulled another massive share for 9GEM at 15.8% -more than 10’s primary channel and the entire output of ABC and SBS. It drew 696,000 across 5 city metro on 9GEM.

Meanwhile The Block pulled 1.09m viewers for Nine and topped the demos.

That was well in front of a tight battle between Australian Survivor (735,000 from 7:30pm) and Australia’s Got Talent (731,000). ABC factual Judi Dench’s Wild Borneo Adventure pulled 411,000 from 7:40pm.

OzTAM Overnights: Sunday 25 August 2019.


  1. ABC returns Glitch at 9.30 – what kind of numbers were they expecting with that late timeslot? Disappointing. Maybe should have been kept to Thursdays where it has always been. On a separate note, I’ve noticed 60 Minutes is now borrowing a trick from ACA, where they promote a story as “coming up” but it’s actually a “preview” for next week

  2. jezza the first original one

    The value of the rights for the Ashes in England must be on the rise with such regular high numbers. What was paid for this series? Surely has to be a real bargain for ch9. Even more so now that the series is in the balance. No one would have ever scripted the overnight drama….

  3. Loved AusSurvivor last night. Forever keeping us guessing.
    Have taped The Block and Glitch for latter viewing (such poor numbers for the latter…a new time slot probably doesn’t help…maybe iView catchup is where the numbers will increase).

  4. Jᴏʜɴɴʏ 1ᴘ5

    What I also find interesting is that all channels combined for Seven were 24.1%, Nine on it’s own was 21.4% so only 2.7% short of beating all 5 of Seven’s channels.
