Sunday Ratings | I’M A CELEBRITY owns a weak primetime as Nine slumps to third


The nail-biting finish to the Ashes test bleeding past 6pm really helped Seven come home strong…because the BBL sure didn’t.

Seven take the night win, no thanks to the BBL11: Sydney Sixers v Perth Scorchers (374,000) game.
Seven first in both primary (22.1%) and network (29.6%) rankings.

The Sunday Project (236,000 6:30pm; 403,000 7pm) up compared to the weeknight edition on 10, as was I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! (632,000) which benefitted from the reveal of The David (though still very, very low). This was chased down by new then repeat eps of FBI (243,000; 132,000).
10 second in both primary (16.3%) and network (22.8%) rankings.

The summer edition of 60 Minutes (425,000) was Nine’s best by a long-shot, followed by repeats of David Attenborough’s A Perfect Planet (231,000) and MOVIE: Double Jeopardy (187,000).
Nine third in both primary (14.9%) and network (22.4%) rankings.

All repeats on the ABC: Kevin McCloud’s Top Ten (321,000), MOVIE: Becoming Jane (230,000), Doc Martin (97,000), and Harrow (38,000).
ABC fourth in both primary (9.8%) and network (13.8%) rankings.

SBS also roll out all repeats: Tombs of Egypt: The Ultimate Mission (185,000), Costa Concordia: Why She Sank (249,000), Lost Worlds and Hidden Treasures (54,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (7.1%) and network (11.4%) rankings.


16-39: Seven News Sunday (225,000) took the win over The Ashes S3/Tea, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, and The Ashes S2.

25-54: Seven News Sunday (472,000) lands the triple demo win thanks to the cricket overrun, followed by The Ashes S3, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, and The Ashes Tea/S2.


NCIS ep 2 rpt (139,000) on 10 Bold took out the multi-channel win.


Weekend Sunrise (256,000)
