Seven won thanks to My Kitchen Rules and Seven News (which was boosted in AFL states by the late finishing AFL game). The NRL game between Wests and Melbourne ran over past its scheduled finish just before 6pm because of golden point time. That boosted the Nine News as well.

Nine’s You’re Back in The Room continued to fade, losing another 89,000 metro viewers. 60 Minutes’ audience jumped as a ghoulish fascination emerged with viewers anxious to see developments in the Beirut debacle. 60 Minutes had 1.263 million and 849,000 metro viewers. Seven’s Sunday Night averaged 1.288 million national viewers and 860,000 in the metros. MKR had 1.964 million national viewers, including 1.369 million metro viewers and again dominated the night.

Insiders had 543,000 national viewers including 412,000 in the metros on the ABC and News 24. In regional markets, Seven News had 609,000 viewers, MKR had 604,000 viewers, Nine News, 530,000, David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef, 433,000 and Sunday Night, 428,000.

Today beat Sunrise in metro breakfast last week, Sunrise won nationally. Seven won last week in total people and the major demos, for yet another week.
