Sunday Ratings | The LOGIES bounce back (sort of)


- Advertisement -


The greatest crime in live television is being bland or boring – and last night we got both. Sure, there were high points (but they were politeness), and there were no car accidents (well, no fatalities). But, on with the numbers…

Logies Red Carpet (826,000) starts the night reasonably for Nine, though it wasn’t a patch on TV Blackbox’s coverage. 😉 62nd TV Week Logies Awards (885,000) bounced up on the last couple of years of soft performance, and considering it ran for over four hours (38 minutes overtime) that’s not a bad average…but not necessarily a good one either. Australia’s Top Ten of Everything (538,000) got a Logies bump so do we consider it as even airing?
Nine first in both primary (36.5%) and network (43.1%) rankings.

7News Spotlight (388,000) leads the night for Seven, down significantly on last week. Border Security (244,000) also slips, and a repeat of MOVIE: The Equalizer 2 (179,000) does little. The Blacklist (36,000) warms PVRs hearts and hard drives.
Seven second in both primary (14.7%) and network (19.6%) rankings.

The Sunday Project (232,000 6:30pm; 310,000 7pm) down even on last week’s poor numbers for 10. MasterChef Australia (484,000) also slides however thats because all its stars were elsewhere. NCIS: Hawaii (155,000) and a repeat of FBI (63,000) fill out the later night.
10 third in both primary (10.7%) and network (15.3%) rankings.

Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery (415,000) premieres to smaller-than-usual numbers, and is sure to pick up next week on Total TV numbers, as I’m sure Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears (340,000) will also. Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? (139,000) and a repeat of Harrow (44,000) flesh out the ABC’s schedule.
ABC fourth in both primary (10.3%) and network (13.9%) rankings.

SBS’s Sunday delivered little, with Voices From The Dead (118,000), Mesopotamia 3D (85,000) and a repeat of Alhambra Secrets of the Ancient Builders (85,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (3.9%) and network (8.1%) rankings.


16-39: 62 Annual TV Week Logie Awards (155,000) came in ahead of the Logies Red Carpet, Nine News Sunday, Seven News Sunday, and MasterChef Australia.

18-49: 62 Annual TV Week Logie Awards (296,000) beat out the Logies Red Carpet, Nine News Sunday, Seven News Sunday, and MasterChef Australia.

25-54: 62 Annual TV Week Logie Awards (357,000) takes the triple demo crown for the night, followed by the Logies Red Carpet, Nine News Sunday, Seven News Sunday, and MasterChef Australia.


A new episode of Bluey (286,000) on ABC Kids/TV Plus pipped the usual winner Insiders for the multi-channel win.
