691,000 metro viewers tune into the final of Ten’s The Amazing Race while Nine wins the night

The Amazing Race Australia concluded on Sunday night with 618,000 metro viewers tuning into Ten for the episode and 691,000 watching Brendon Crawley and Jackson Dening crowned the winners at the final finish line on top of Mount Kosciuszko.

The show premiered in early February to 501,000 metro viewers. On the same night Seven’s Holey Moley launched to 983,000 metro viewers, while the second half of Nine’s Married at First Sight reunion drew 781,000 metro viewers.

The finale pushed the program up in the key advertising demographics, with the episode and final moments only coming in behind Nine’s Married at First Sight.

The season was down on its first outing for Ten in 2019, which debuted to 635,000 metro viewers and closed out with 739,000 metro viewers tuning in for the final moments. However, this year’s season was up against Nine’s broadcast of the Australian Open and the return of Married at First Sight, whilst the previous season ran in the last quarter of 2019.

Ten’s network share for the night was 19.2% and its primary channel reached 12.%.

Sunday night’s episode of Married at First Sight maintained the series’ trend above one million metro viewers, with 1.106m tuning in. The episode and the performance of 60 Minutes with 738,000 metro viewers handed Nine the night, with a network share of 36.7% and a primary channel share of 28% despite the challenges of the day with a cyber attack in the morning.

Seven’s Sunday consisted of the AFL game between Fremantle and GWS going to air at 6pm AEDT on 7Mate, and documentary Shark Alarm: The Year of Swimming Dangerously broadcast on its primary channel at 7pm.

The AFL delivered 334,000 metro viewers – 139,000 of which were in Melbourne and 107,000 came from Perth – and gave 7Mate an audience share of 3.3%, coming in behind 10Bold on 3.6% as the secondary channel with the highest share.

Shark Alarm drew 286,000 metro viewers on Seven. The network’s share on Sunday was 21.2%, with its primary channel delivering a 15.1% share.
