Seven doubles Nine, triples 10 on Sunday.
Olympic glory continued on Sunday, although reality alternatives held up quite well.
Seven’s Tokyo onslaught continued on Sunday with Olympics Night 1.59m / Evening 1.41m metro viewers on the primary channel.
Even the daytime coverage beat primetime offerings with Afternoon (1.39m), Late Afternoon (1.19m) and Morning (820,000).
Late Night coverage was 645,000 and multichannels were up to 407,000.
Yet entertainment shows held up quite well given the opposition with Beauty & the Geek best at 692,000 then Australian Survivor (563,000 from 7:30pm) and Grand Designs (456,000 from 7:40pm). This suggests the Games doesn’t necessarily mean entertainment shows lose their existing following, so much as drawing other viewers back to Free to Air.
Later 60 Minutes was 522,000 then Innocent (247,000).
Seven dominated with a huge 49.1% share then Nine 22.1%, 10 13.9%, ABC 9.7% and SBS 5.3%.
Seven News was huge at 1.56m viewers, easily ahead of Nine News at 1.08m. A late edition of Nine News was 369,000.
The Sunday Project drew 425,000 / 316,000. 10 News First was 313,000 / 244,000. FBI managed 185,000 / 150,000.
ABC News was 671,000 for ABC on a tough night. Compass was just 169,000 and Agatha Christie’s ABC Murders only 121,000.
On SBS it was SBS World News (224,000 / 162,000) then a triple play of Inside Monaco: Playground Of The Rich averaged 107,000.
A Coronavirus: Public Update on ABC News was 334,000.
