9GEM coverage of the ICC T20 Women’s World Cup drew a massive crowd of 531,000 viewers on Sunday.
Nine was heavily criticised for showing the game on its multichannels on International Women’s Day as it favoured MAFS on its primary channel. The cricket crowd proved to be bigger than rival juggernauts, sending MKR to a new low.
Married at First Sight still topped the night at 976,000, albeit down on previous Sundays.
It defeated Grand Designs (404,000 from 7:40pm), My Kitchen Rules (395,000) and Dancing with the Stars (352,000 from 7:30pm)
60 Minutes also thumped the competition, remaining high at 842,000. Stateless was 363,000 then The Good Doctor (286,000).
Nine’s combined lined-up delivered a huge network share of 43.3% -more than double the competition. Seven 21.6%, 10 14.6%, ABC 14.3% and SBS 6.1% all followed.
Nine News drew 766,000 on Nine. Murder on the Internet was 307,000.
Seven News won its slot at 789,000 for Seven. World’s Most Shocking Emergency Calls was 157,000.
The Sunday Project pulled 321,000 / 308,000 for 10. 10 News First (262,000) and a Graham Norton Show repeat (170,000) followed.
ABC News was 864,000 for ABC. A Very English Scandal (225,000) and Compass (163,000) also comprised ABC’s night.
On SBS it was Secrets of our Cities (165,000), SBS World News (133,000) and North America with Simon Reeve (120,000).
