Late-night Wimbledon final rates 312,000 for Seven

The Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Andy Murray, which aired from 11pm on Seven, drew ratings of 312,000, according to preliminary overnight metro ratings from OzTam.

The match, which lasted four hours, ended in tears for the Brit, who went down in four sets to the seven-times Wimbledon champion.

Domestic Blitz – The Block to the Rescue, a special episode hosted by Scott Cam and Jamie Durie with couples from The Block, won the night with 1.646m for Nine.

The show, which aired from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, beat Sunday Night on Seven (1.382m) and Last Man Standing on Ten (418,000).

Domestic Blitz also topped the 25-54 demographic, but MasterChef – which drew a solid total of 1.4m viewers – was number one the 16-39 and 18-49 segments.

MasterChef leapfrogged Seven’s Downton Abbey in the ratings table, with the latter slipping slightly from 1.402m last week to 1.361m.

Meanwhile, Billy Connolly’s Route 66 improved for Seven on last week, up from less than 1m to 1.175m.
