Spicks & Specks, Hamish & Andy tussle over audience.
Ratings: ABC narrowed ahead of Nine for the top entertainment show on Sunday.
Spicks & Specks returned to 721,000 viewers last night for its Ausmusic special.
That was the top entertainment show for the night. Although it was down on last year’s 905,000 it was still probably one of ABC’s better drawcards in the early Sunday slot this year.
It barely defeated Hamish & Andy’s “Perfect” Holiday on 715,000 (from 7pm) ….ironically Hamish Blake has been a Spicks regular. Nine however did top the demos. Zumbo’s Just Desserts (405,000 from 7pm) and The Graham Norton Show (330,000) followed.
60 Minutes (528,000) then outranked ABC’s Mystify Michael Hutchence (418,000), and Sunday Night signed off to just 379,000 from 8pm. NCIS was 284,000,
During the day the Cricket drew up to 470,000 for Seven, upstaging 10’s Newcastle 500 Supercars at up to 202,000.

Nine News drew 734,000 for Nine. Playground Murder Plot was 250,000.
Seven News was #1 at 859,000 for Seven. Movie: The Commuter was only 175,000.
