Nine News pips Seven News on Sunday

Nine News managed a rare win over Seven News in preliminary figures last night at 1.18m and 1.17m respectively. That helped Nine to continue in front for the night.

The Voice led in entertainment stakes at 1.03m ahead of MasterChef Australia (979,000 from 7:30pm) with 10’s cooking show topping the demos then House Rules (605,000 / 597,000) and Grand Designs NZ (452,000 from 7:40pm).

Later 60 Minutes was 716,000 with Operation Buffalo debuting to 555,000 -second in its slot although, by comparison, 100,000 less than Mystery Road‘s return in April.

Nine network won Sunday with 31.6%, then Seven 24.9%, 10 20.7%, ABC 15.1% and SBS 7.7%.

A late edition of Nine News also drew 501,000.

    • These ratings don’t reflect all Australia, only 5 city metros are in these ratings. Add up all the cities and the population counted for these ratings is approximately 15-16 million people. And remember people watch in families and groups so not everyone will be counted as 1 viewer.

  1. It will be interesting to see the ratings for Operation Buffalo next week. I would expect a significant drop off, as the first ep was cringeworthy imo. So disappointing for an ABC commissioned drama.

  2. The over run of the NRL in Sydney was why Sydney Nine news had big numbers resulting in Nine news winning overall against Seven news.

  3. I imagine Nine News’s figure will be adjusted. The first 10 minutes in Sydney and Brisbane will be the over run of the NRL game that preceeded it.
