Seven took Monday night in total people and the main channel, followed by Nine, Ten and a weak ABC. Strong numbers for Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention? — 912,000 and a top 10 finish — while MasterChef attracted 792,000. On Seven, Home and Away draw close to a million viewers, Big Brother 886,000. And Nine’s Celebrity Apprentice rated 771,000 — down from 790,000 a week ago.

Seven’s news did well in Melbourne but Nine’s bulletin won big in Sydney and Brisbane; however, the overall numbers boosted by COVID-19 coverage have slumped, with viewers seeming to shrug and return to streamers like Netflix, Stan or Amazon Prime.
