Monday Ratings | Obama and GOLD COAST COPS can’t compete with SAS AUSTRALIA

No episodic delivery of The Block left the door wide open for Seven on an underwhelming night of ratings.

Given the free air SAS Australia (676,000) ticks up to take the mantle of highest-rating non-News program for the night. With less than 700,000 viewers. Go figure. A double episode of The Rookie (329,000; 260,000) helped bring it home, landing Seven first in both primary (19.6%) and network (27.7%) shares.

Gold Coast Cops (400,000; 416,000) reveals just how much The Block has been holding up Nine’s weeknightly schedule of late. A repeat of Bond flick Skyfall (265,000) helped, but not enough. Nine second in both primary (17.9%) and network (25.5%) shares.

Monday nights on the ABC are as regular as clockwork: 7:30 (610,000), Australian Story (601,000), Four Corners replaced by In The Face Of Terror (389,000), Media Watch (455,000), and Q&A (307,000) provide for the most consistent evening’s run in the week. ABC third in primary (14.7%) share; fourth in network (19.2%) share.

Barack Obama: The Interview (470,000) didn’t offer much in insight or viewers, again hurting Have You Been Paying Attention? (617,000) by delivering it a soft lead-in. Just For Laughs Australia (273,000) was nothing to write home about. 10 fourth in primary (13.6%) share, while 10 Bold helps boost them to third in network (20.2%) share.

Heeler-watch™: Bluey (226,000 am; 153,000 pm) simply delightful, and still leads everything on any multi-channel.

Sunrise (259,000) still leading over The Today Show (208,000) and ABC Breakfast (201,000 [124,000 ABC; 77,000 ABC News]).
