Nine’s network share was 27.2% with the main channel recording 17.7%. Like Seven, the strongest performing shows were the news programs with 60 Minutes seeing 717,000 viewers tuning in to watch the program’s Sunday night expose of the Hillsong Church and an interview with Jackie Weaver.

Sixty Minutes, however, didn’t rate at all with the key demographics with Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention?’s  finale’s 811,000 total viewers translating into it being the most watched shows in the key demographics – viewers aged 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54 .

Trailing Ten’s quiz show in the demographics was Bride & Prejudice which attracted an average of 711,000 viewers on Tuesday night to be the tenth-most watch show for the week. Both Monday and Tuesday’s shows made the top shows across the age groups.

Ambulance Australian and The Secret Life of Four Year Olds also made the demographics’ top shows for Ten, as did Nine’s Paramedics.

In audience share, Ten still trailed the ABC for the week with the CBS-owned network attracting 10.1% of the audience for its main channel and a network share of 16.1%. The national broadcaster’s respective shares were 13.7% and 19.3% while SBS recorded 4.8% and 7.6%
