Sunday Project ratings surge
Lisa Wilkinson has been blamed by press before, but now 10 show number are booming.
Ratings for The Sunday Project are enjoying a growing trend in figures.
On Sunday the show drew 588,000 / 354,000 metro viewers for its split-coded show.
The same Sunday in 2019 it drew 316,000 / 222,000 and in 2018 423,000 / 268,000.
Numbers for April 19 were higher still, at 613,000 / 413,000 -almost reaching its 2018 post Bathurst record of 638,000 viewers.
The rise can be attributed in part to COVID-19 news interest and the return of Masterchef Australia certainly doesn’t hurt. But all’s (mostly) fair in love and programming, and the numbers are encouraging for the show that has copped some harsh scrutiny.
