Monday Ratings | THE VOICE AUSTRALIA slips; stays above the the magic million


The controversy on THE BLOCK really starts to heat the ratings up.

Home and Away (658,000) still managing to do solid numbers for Seven, and The Voice Australia (1,006,000) holds JUST over 1 million viewers (that’s the lowest it has delivered this season) for its epic 2-hour ep. A double ep of 9-1-1: Lone Star (321,000; 191,000) follows to complete Seven’s night for fans.
Seven first in both primary (24.2%) and network (33.2%) rankings.

Nine’s Monday would otherwise be an overnight winner. Massive numbers for A Current Affair (811,000), and The Block (809,000) delivers its second highest numbers for the season – two nights in a row over 800k. A repeat of Under Investigation (375,000) holds it together before the NRL/AFL split of 100% Footy (67,000) and Footy Classified (157,000).
Nine second in both primary (19.2%) and network (24.7%) rankings.

The Project (338,000 6:30pm; 535,000 7pm) lifts 10’s Monday right from the get go (even if slightly down on last week).
Australian Survivor (690,000) maintaining a solid almost 700’s push in it’s second last week of the season, though Have You Been Paying Attention? (637,000) down a little, likely due to the massive multi-hour Voice ep. Lawrence Mooney: Like Literally (183,000) finishes out the night.
10 third in both primary (13.6%) and network (19.2%) rankings.

The ABC’s Monday started strong with the 7:30 (591,000) and Australian Story (614,000) double, and dipped slightly but up on last week for the part 2 of Sarah Ferguson’s excellent report on the Murdoch empire on Four Corners (602,000). Media Watch (522,000) up slightly with the return of Paul Barry, and the penultimate ep of Beyond the Towers (291,000) rounded out the evening.
ABC fourth in both primary (12.6%) and network (16.6%) rankings.

SBS’s mixed bag of a Monday started with a repeat of Insider Windsor Castle (156,000), then a new ep of Secret Scotland (168,000), rounded out with a repeat of 24 Hours in Emergency (101,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (3.8%) and network (6.2%) rankings.

16-39: Have You Been Paying Attention? tied with Australian Survivor (214,000) to win the demo, followed by The Block, The Voice Australia, and The Project 7pm.

18-49: Have You Been Paying Attention? tied with The Block (345,000) to take out this demo, followed by Australian Survivor, The Voice Australia, and Seven News 6pm.

25-54: The Block (409,000) takes the demo win in its own right, chased by Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Voice Australia, Australian Survivor, and Nine News 6pm.

Coronavirus Public Update – AM (208,000) on ABC NEWS just pips the Paralympic Games on 7mate to take out the multi-channel race.

Sunrise (287,000)
The Today Show (257,000)
ABC Breakfast (218,000 (126,000 ABC; 92,000 ABC News))
