Home & Away tops 900,000 viewers on Monday

After 37 years, Summer Bay soap is still pulling competitive numbers in a primetime slot.

While Farmer Wants a Wife continues to draw good numbers for Seven at 1.01m viewers last night in National TV Audience, it is also bringing a halo effect to their 37 year old drama, Home & Away.

Last night the Summer Bay soap pulled out  902,000, only pipped by A Current Affair at 1.05m and ABC News. Even better when you remember the show is produced internally by Seven.

Meanwhile at 7:30pm were Lego Masters (725,000), 7:30 (671,000), MasterChef Australia (655,000) and Australian Story (647,000).

Later Media Watch drew 637,000 then Four Corners (598,000), Paramedics (423,000), 9-1-1 (387,000), and FBI: Most Wanted (197,000).

Seven News was #1 at 1.54m and The Chase (737,000). SWAT was 166,000.

Nine News was 1.29m followed with a win by Tipping Point (743,000). Footy Classifed drew 130,000 with 100% Footy at 103,000.

ABC News drew 926,000. Hard Quiz (396,000) and Q+A (275,000) followed.

The Project pulled 393,000 for 10 then Deal or No Deal (344,000) and 10 News First (332,000).

SBS World News was 226,000 / 177,000 then Tony Robinson’s Marvellous Machines at 168,000 and Secrets of the Tower of London (124,000).

  1. I noted on this website before that H&A is the quiet achiever routinely achieving more than 1m for metro 7day numbers. And to your point David, not only is it internally produced saving money no doubt, don’t channel 5 in the UK pay half production costs?
