Australian Survivor launches strong for 10
Australian Survivor is up on 2020 premiere -and why a coding problem hit Beauty & the Geek.
According to official OzTAM figures, Australian Survivor won its timeslot and topped the demos at 752,000.
That’s an increase on the 624,000 debut for the 2020 All Stars season.
That was ahead of just ahead of Farmer Wants a Wife (709,000 from 7pm) and Grand Designs drew 582,000 at 7:40pm.
However there was a coding issue with Beauty & the Geek which saw OzTAM list at just 434,000. TV Tonight understands that’s an average of both primetime and an arvo replay on 9GO! When the number is adjusted to 776,000 that will put Geek ahead of them all. Oops.
Later 60 Minutes led with 516,000 then Innocent (444,000), and 7News Spotlight (381,000).
Seven network won Sunday with 27.6% then Nine 27.2%, 10 21.3%, ABC 14.9% and SBS 9.0%.
Seven News was #1 at 1.22m. The Latest drew 308,000 then Crime Investigation Australia: Most Infamous (145,000).
Nine News (1.13m) was best for Nine with a late edition drawing 360,000.
The Project was 506,000 / 318,000 for 10. 10 News First was 360,000 / 257,000. FBI managed 262,000 / 164,000.
ABC News was high at 794,000 for ABC. Compass (215,000) and Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders (176,000) followed.
