Ominous signs for the latest season of The Masked Singer Australia, however.
2021 Brownlow Medal (889,000) ran on Seven’s primary channel in MEL/ADL, and split in PER, and fully on 7mate in BNE/SYD. 7News: The Disappearance of William Tyrell (401,000) ran as the alternate for BNE/SYD and then into a repeat of MOVIE: Jack Reacher – Never Go Back (361,000) which aired earlier or later, depending on your state of the Brownlow.
Seven first in both primary (29.2%) and network (36.4%) rankings.
The Block (961,000) lands it’s second best figures this season against stiff competition for Nine, and that halos somewhat to help lift 60 Minutes (643,000). The First 48 (151,000) complete’s the schedule.
Nine second in both primary (21.9%) and network (28.8%) rankings.
10’s Sunday in all sorts of bother. The Sunday Project (323,000 6:30pm; 437,000 7pm) slides lower than last week, and The Masked Singer Australia (539,000 avg (494,000 show; 584,000 reveal)) turns in its lowest figures this season’s run, and ever. A double repeat of FBI: Most Wanted (210,000; 162,000) and a repeat of FBI (112,000) round out the night.
10 tied third in primary (9.8%) and third clear in network (15%) rankings.
Armadillo: Narrated by David Attenborough (363,000) was only ever a placeholder for the ABC, and the finale of The Newsreader (429,000) didn’t draw massive numbers though it will lift in next week’s Total TV report. Traces (132,000) and a repeat of Les Norton (71,000) send everyone off to bed.
ABC tied third in primary (9.8%) and fourth in network (13.3%) rankings.
SBS roll out an almost all-new Sunday night, starting with Inside Central Station (185,000), and then the excellent Australia Uncovered: Osher Gunsberg (106,000), followed by a repeat of Michael Mosley: Eat, Fast, and Live Longer (92,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.1%) and network (6.5%) rankings.
16-39: 2021 Brownlow Medal (228,000) beat out The Block, Seven News Sunday, and The Masked Singer Australia reveal/show.
18-49: The Block (382,000) came in ahead of 2021 Brownlow Medal, Nine News Sunday, Seven News Sunday, and The Masked Singer Australia reveal.
25-54: The Block (449,000) triumphant, followed by 2021 Brownlow Medal, Nine News Sunday, Seven News Sunday, and The Masked Singer Australia reveal.
Close of Business – PM (375,000) on ABC NEWS took the multi-channel win by a serious margin.
Weekend Sunrise (248,000)
Weekend Today (248,000)
Weekend ABC Breakfast (216,000 (125,000 ABC; 91,000 ABC News))
Insiders (362,000 (288,000 ABC; 174,000 ABC News))
