Crowd-pleasing concert gives Seven a Sunday win
Ratings: Viewers stick with must-see concert to the very end, as Seven dominates across the day.
Fire Fight Australia has given Seven a win on Sunday, with the concert drawing big crowds across its marathon broadcast.
Coded into separate sections the Late portion drew the biggest audience at 1.01m viewers followed by early primetime at 953,000. During the afternoon it averaged 828,000 with 543,00 for the early afternoon. Even the multichannel audience at 6pm drew 284,000.
The biggest crowds were also in Melbourne despite the concert being staged in Sydney.
Married at First Sight still won its slot at 1.1m viewers for Nine and led the demos. While it appears impenetrable to Seven’s concert, the likelihood is the first ‘Commitment Ceremony’ might have otherwise been higher.
Against such artillery, Dancing with the Stars was down at 348,000/ 327,000 trailing Grand Designs at 510,000 on ABC.
Seven network won Sunday with 38.0% then Nine 30.8%, ABC 14.0%, 10 11.7% and SBS 5.5%.
Seven News drew 979,000 defeating Nine News on 855,000. 60 Minutes pulled a decent 772,000 for Nine.
ABC News was 665,000 with Midsomer Murders at 491,000.
The Sunday Project drew 280,000 / 176,000 for 10 then 10 News First (219,000), The Graham Norton Show (125,000) and Bondi Rescue (107,000).
On SBS it was SBS World News (148,000), Australia in Colour (131,000). Later The Dirty War on the NHS drew 84,000.
