Seven claims total people win for the year but Nine dominates Sunday evening

sevenSeven has won the total people ratings for the ninth year in a row, but rival Nine has performed best across the demographics.

Network Seven’s win last week in the ratings gave it the top spot for the year, with three weeks to go of the official ratings period.

However Nine managed a win in both total people and the demographics on Sunday, with The Block and cricket leading the way with the renovation show claiming 1.355m viewers as it reaches its climax.

Australia’s dominance against New Zealand also drew decent audiences across the weekend, with Sunday’s first session from 10.30am AESDT watched by 651,000, session two from 1.40pm watched by 707,000 and the rain-hit third session watched by 842,000.

Seven’s best shows were News at 6pm which had 1.069m viewers and Sunday Night at 7pm which had 1.061m.

Nine managed a share of 26 per cent leaving Seven second with 19.5 per cent and Ten third on 10.1 per cent ahead of ABC’s 6 per cent.

Beach Cops picked up for Seven with 815,000 at 8pm while Ten’s The Biggest Loser Families at 7pm managed 557,000, Ten’s best show for the evening.

Doctor Who on ABC at 7.45pm lifted to 466,000 viewers while Nine also found a small hit with KKK: the Fight for White Supremacy at 9pm which had 498,000 viewers.
