There was a full complement for the Sunday news and current affairs
shows yesterday with the US Open no longer disrupting the schedule.
Business Sunday was easily beaten by Seven’s Weekend Sunrise by more than 100,000 viewers. Business Sunday averaged 158,000, Weekend Sunrise 265,000.

Sunday was the leader, again, with 348,7000 people, about average with recent weeks. Insiders
had the best outing for ages: more than 204,000 people between 9am to
9:45am. But the audience didn’t stick around for the Alan Kohler hosted
Inside Business. It shrank very quickly to average 100,700. Meet the Press on Ten did well with Kim Beazley, the tragic Labor leader, as guest. MTP’s audience averaged 108,900, good numbers.

My Business, the David Koch small business show on Seven averaged 150,900 people, easily outstripping the advertorial heavy Business Success on Nine at 7:30 am with 72,500 people. Landline at midday on the ABC had a very solid average audience of more than 222,000 people.
