New Girl is up but Young Talent Time is down for Ten

Pre-election coverage around the Labor leadership battle saw strong ratings for news programs in Seven and Nine last night.

The one-day cricket also fared well on Nine, pulling in 1.184m – and was the most-watched non-news show of the night.

Ten’s New Girl improved on last week, pushing passed the million-mark. Except for the cricket on Nine, New Girl won the 8pm time slot against The Force: Behind the Line on Seven and Grand Designs on ABC1.

It was also Sunday’s most watched show in the 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54 demographics.

Ten’s Young Talent Time continued its slide, falling from 716,000 last Sunday to 627,000.

The Project appears to have bottomed out, although with a disappointing 318,000.

Ten occupied the top three spots in the 16-39 and 18-49 demos, with New Girl, Homeland and Modern Family.
