Sunday Ratings | THE VOICE AUSTRALIA wins again; Nine takes the night


- Advertisement -


Numbers were way down everywhere, with a couple of exceptions.

Nine end up with their first Sunday win since MAFS finished, though it took a combined effort rather than a single show. Lego Masters Australia (664,000) lifts on last week though it is still over 100k behind first place. Despite the debacle it turned out to be, the 60 Minutes: The Leader’s Debate (641,000) delivered some much-needed strong numbers for Nine’s public affairs show, and certainly up on last week. The First 48 (145,000) finishes out the late night.
Nine second in both primary (25.2%) and network (33.4%) rankings.

The Voice Australia (766,000) again romps home a winner for Seven, however its move to once a week might see a change in its influence. 7News Spotlight: The Fame Game (383,000) secures some viewers though nothing to spoil the debate, as a repeat of
Ivan Milat: Buried Secrets (96,000) completes the night.
Seven second in both primary (23.4%) and network (30.4%) rankings.

The Sunday Project (206,000 6:30pm; 307,000 7pm) starts the week coming off a very low base (again) which in part causes MasterChef Australia (452,000) to struggle also (though this feels like its average has been found). A double repeat of FBI (208,000; 103,000) does little to help 10’s ratings woes for the evening.
10 third in both primary (10.7%) and network (15.8%) rankings.

Grand Designs (415,000) starts the night as the ABC’s best by some margin, as Barons (133,000) and Life (103,000) both continue their very poor linear broadcast first run…thank goodness for the Total TV catch-up figures. A repeat of Harrow (41,000) completes the night.
ABC fourth in both primary (9%) and network (12.5%) rankings.

SBS’s Sunday delivers Secrets to Civilization (131,000), Fall of the Maya Kings (148,000), and a repeat of The Real Lawrence of Arabia (113,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (5.1) and network (7.9%) rankings.


16-39: Lego Masters Australia (151,000) beat out 60 Minutes, Nine News Sunday, MasterChef Australia, and The Voice Australia.

18-49: Lego Masters Australia (268,000) comes in ahead of Nine News Sunday, 60 Minutes, The Voice Australia, and Seven News Sunday.

25-54: Lego Masters Australia (316,000) lands another triple demo win, followed by Nine News Sunday, The Voice Australia, 60 Minutes, and Seven News Sunday.
