While the AFL isn’t a national crowd pleaser it does help the Big Red Train™ bring home a rare Sunday night.
7 News Spotlight: Saving Candice (439,000) got a national run on Seven (and also well down on last week) as it was bounced into a couple of different time slots thanks to Seven’s AFL: Sunday Night Football (570,000) taking pride of place in the AFL states (and multi-channel runs in the others) and sliding into second when you add in the multi-channel figures. Subsequently, BNE/SYD/PER had the repeat movie double of MOVIE: Taken 2 (133,000) and MOVIE: Taken 3 (77,000) to play out their evenings. I wonder what Seven could do with a competitive schedule that didn’t lean so heavily on their News and sporting products?
Seven first in both primary (20.2%) and network (29.8%) rankings.
Celebrity Apprentice Australia (636,000 show; 718,000 boardroom) delivers amongst its strongest numbers this season, delivering a win in the timeslot (677,00 average). 60 Minutes (480,000) way off the usual pace, and hopefully this is because nobody needed to hear from that guy again. Roland Garros 2021 Pre-Show (140,000) ends the night with the start of the tennis.
Nine second in both primary (19.7%) and network (27%) rankings.
The Project (268,000 6:30pm; 403,000 7pm) crashes to I think its lowest numbers this year, while MasterChef Australia (558,000) is up a little from Thursday, though down on last week’s Sunday slot and third in this evening’s comp. Then one new and two repeats of FBI (269,000; 172,000; 126,000) fills out a lazy later night scheduled for 10.
10 third in both primary (12.7%) and network (18.8%) rankings.
Spicks and Specks (523,000) slides down on last week (AFL audience probably), and the final season of Jack Irish (521,000) premieres to reasonable numbers – seemingly competitive these days, and certainly better than other Aussie dramas airing at this time. Smother (176,000) and a repeat of Unforgotten (80,000) complete Aunty’s night.
ABC fourth in both primary (12.1%) and network (16.8%) rankings.
Two eps of The Real Hunt for Red October (164,000) followed by a repeat of Batavia Revealed: Shipwreck Psycho (114,000) and a repeat of A Modern Mutiny – Untold Australia (89,000) brings home SBS’s nautical Sunday evening tales.
SBS fifth in both primary (5%) and network (7.6%) rankings.
16-39: Celebrity Apprentice Australia boardroom (146,000) beats out Seven’s AFL, Celebrity Apprentice Australia show, MasterChef Australia, and Nine News Sunday.
18-49: Celebrity Apprentice Australia boardroom (268,000) takes the win ahead of Nine News Sunday, Celebrity Apprentice Australia show, MasterChef Australia, and Seven’s AFL.

Seven’s AFL: Sunday Night Football (185,000) on 7mate in BNE/SYD/PER just pips Bluey‘s morning run for top spot in the multi-channel race.
