Seven’s All Together Now cracks 800,000 viewers for launch, Ten’s Game of Games pulls just 536,000

The premiere of Seven’s new show All Together Now attracted more than 800,000 metro viewers across Australia, boosting Seven’s Sunday share to 19.1%.

Last week Seven’s share fell to 15.8%, in part due to the NRL Grand Final on Nine, and the week before, had a share of 19.6%.

Seven’s new show, All Together Now, was one of a number of programs to launch last night

All Together Now’s 813,000 was the second-highest launch episode for Seven this year. Seven’s highest rating launch for an Australian show was Australian Spartan, with 816,000.

The result also put Seven comfortably ahead of Ten’s new game show with Grant Denyer, Game of Games, which pulled in just 536,000. Last week, Game of Games’ executive producer, Hillary Innes, told Mumbrella Ten was hoping to attract a “decent, large” audience.

But despite its efforts, both programs were unable the beat Nine’s The Block, which averaged a metro audience of 1.139m, and led all the key advertising demographics, 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54. Nine’s The Block was the most watched show of Sunday night, according to OzTAM’s overnight preliminary metro and national figures.

Nationally, The Block had an audience of 1.579m, compared to All Together Now’s 1.167m and Game of Games’ 776,000.

Ten’s Game of Games also had a lower audience than Ten’s The Sunday Project 7pm, which featured an interview with former Bachelor, Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins, following last week’s series ending where he couldn’t decide on a winner. The Project managed a metro audience of 620,000, up by 360,000 viewers from last week and more than 200,000 viewers up from the week prior.

Ten’s most popular Sunday program was the Supercars Championship Bathurst D3 Race, which pulled in a metro audience of 745,000.

The 6pm news battle was won by Seven, with 942,000 viewers tuning in across the five metro cities, beating Nine News Sunday’s 842,000. But Nine’s 60 Minutes, which ran from 8:30pm, was more popular than Seven’s Sunday Night, which ran from 8:15pm, with metro audiences of 698,000 and 499,000.

Nine won the evening with a 23.1% share of audience, beating Seven’s 19.1% share. Ten’s new program didn’t have a significant impact on the channel’s share, which sat at 11.9%. ABC beat Ten with a share of 13.1% while SBS’ share fell to 3.2%.

Total network share also went to Nine – at 32.4% – while Seven Network came in behind Nine’s share of 27.9%. ABC Network had a share of 17.4% while Ten’s share was 16.8%.
