Monday Ratings | 10 have a massive night with AUSTRALIAN SURVIVOR and HAVE YOU BEEN PAYING ATTENTION? wins


Seven’s Farmer holds second; Nine’s Geeks slide to a distant third in the stripped reality battle.

Home and Away (647,000) pushes solidly into its final week before the Olympic break, and Farmer Wants A Wife (705,000) also pushes towards its finale–down ever so slightly on Sunday though still very good for Seven. US dramas
9-1-1:Lone Star (295,000) and S.W.A.T. (165,000) keep franchise fans happy into the late evening.
Seven first in both primary (19.3%) and network (26.3%) rankings.

A Current Affair (827,000) dominates the start of the night as usual for Nine, and then Beauty and the Geek (618,000) drops significantly from Sunday’s ep, dropping it in third for the slot. The 7:30pm reality battle re-settles in a way that is unhelpful for Nine. An episode of Botched (264,000) fills the gap between the Beauties and Geeks and then, depending on which code rules your capital city, you got either 100% Footy (52,000) or Footy Classified (124,000) to round out the night.
Nine second in primary (17.7%) and third in network (24.6%) rankings.

The Project (357,000 6:30pm; 571,000 7pm) starts the week where it usually does – up slightly on last week’s numbers for Monday. To add to the mix 10 have
Australian Survivor (768,000) which build on its solid premiere last night to land the win at 7:30pm. Have You Been Paying Attention? (744,000) again delivers the best numbers of all the networks in the later primetime (third best result this season) with this Working Dog staple, and proves to be a formidable pairing with its lead-in. Just For Laughs (240,000) completes the night. A super competitive night for 10!
10 third in primary (17.4%) and second in network (25.4%) rankings.

7:30 (690,000) paired with the season final of Courtney Act’s One Plus One (371,000) does reasonable business. Four Corners (435,000) down on last week, as was Media Watch (450,000). The BBC Belle Gibson documentary Bad Influencer (254,000) does average numbers in the old Q+A slot.
ABC fourth in both primary (12%) and network (16.8%) rankings.

SBS’s night runs repeats of Secrets of the Tower of London (158,000) and Secret Scotland (182,000), a then a new episode of 24 Hours in Emergency (121,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.5%) and network (6.9%) rankings.

16-39: Australian Survivor (273,000) beats out Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Project 7pm, and Nine News 6pm/6:30pm.

18-49: Australian Survivor (407,000) takes a huge win ahead of Have YOu Been Paying Attention?, Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, and The Project 7pm.

25-54: Have You Been Paying Attention? (439,000) just pips Australian Survivor, and also comes in front of Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, and Seven News 6pm.

The second of three repeats of NCIS (206,000) on 10 Bold does solid business to win the multi-channel race.

Sunrise (275,000)
The Today Show (225,000)
ABC Breakfast (201,000 (115,000 ABC; 86,000 ABC News))
